When I watch any series anime or otherwise there has to be a good story line as well as action and I find that Kurobas has that. Plus it has loads of other things like Comedy (which is a big thing for me), epic moments, Character developments and there is the possibility for lots of shipping to occur (which I'm a sucker for too).
Also I do love myself a bit of Aomine! But yes I want to be seeing this Akashi too as I haven't read the manga so I know hardly anything about him so it shall be interesting. I have a funny feeling I might grow to really like him.
Also I like to image what the dubbed characters voices would be like.
