It's definitely one of the best basketball manga besides Slam Dunk and the underrated Harlem Beat (aka Rebound). The manga arts is interesting, at first volumes, the arts were drawn using 80s style e.g. longer skirt, more curvy characters, and a bit of ecchi ^o^. Starting around vol. 8th, it started to follow modern art style and the story was also getting serious. Actually I prefer the 80s style especially for the female characters (they look cuter) and I love Aikawa's naughty acts. I wished the author doesn't change them, but I understand the manga was quite popular too for the female readers.
