Description
From VIZ:

Winning isn't everything in the game of basketball, but who wants to come in second? It takes dedication and discipline to be the best, and the Shohoku High hoops team wants to be just that. They have one last year to make their captain's dream of reaching the finals come true--will they do it? Takehiko Inoue's legendary beloved basketball manga is finally here and the tale of a lifetime is in your hands.

Hanamichi Sakuragi's got no game with girls—none at all! It doesn't help that he's known for throwing down at a moment's notice and always coming out on top. A hopeless bruiser, he's been rejected by 50 girls in a row! All that changes when he meets the girl of his dreams, Haruko, and she's actually not afraid of him! When she introduces him to the game of basketball, his life is changed forever...

Notes:
- Includes a oneshot called 10 Days After.

- In 1995 Slam Dunk received the 40th Shogakukan Manga Award for shounen.

A story that you'll never forget

at first it was just a typical story but certain twist on it made it extraordinary. i already read the manga a couple of times for the story brought me into that reality as if im sakuragi kun... it just so sad that the ending was sakuragi being on a rehabilation for his injury...Only hope the author might consider to create a sequel to this manga that we love most. The inspiration that this manga brought into my life that made me see that through strong determination, hardwork and perseverance anything is possible...

Mr. Takehiko Inoue kindly do a sequel on slam dunk for many of the fans been patiently waiting for it...its like a dream come true to all of us fans...please kindly extend the story for it uplifts my spirit as well as others. i know for sure that it will be another big hit... hope you can do us a favor thanks

Other than 10, which number could I have shot?
The best mangas never give a sequel, or say the cleverest mangaka always can give a perfect ending; so is the situation of YuYu Hakusho

I am not a fan of basketball infact i never thought of playing it. But now not only i like to play it i like to play it seriously too. This manga is just awesome. Not a single dull moment in 31 volumes. You wont even feel how quickly you will complete reading it its so engaging.
Those who have given it less than 8.5 rating seriously guys i cant understand you. Everything about slam dunk is awesome, its drawing are expressive, its hell lot of hilarious, it has really good pace.

Just one advice a must read.

This manga is one of the most beloved manga in its own genre.. in fact, all its readers are clamoring for its next installation. even the ending itself, though the story was complete, left more questions and imaginations to the readers. One of those questions were - "what happen to the team shohuko during the winter tournament?" "what were the other improvements of Sakuragi?".. these questions are itself proof of how great the impact of the story it left on its readers. the quality of the story never diminish, not even once in its entirety. even those who aren't BB fanatics are being drawn by this manga. the acts of the troublesome troupe, the blissful acts and imaginations of Sakuragi makes the readers love the story more and more. if you want more of this review from me, here's the link: http://www.mangaupdates.com/reviews.html?id=305

All-Time Favourite - Forever

This is, without a doubt, my favourite manga of all time, and I don't even like basketball. Sakuragi is a hilarious, inspirational, amazing combination of cluelessness, cockiness and talent, and he couldn't have a better supporting cast. My only complaint is the ending, although it was inspiring in its own way - the series is too short! I wanted more! I was never ready to part with the characters that I loved so much.

It made me laugh, and it came close to making me cry several times. Don't be scared off by the basketball - the sports scenes are thrilling and suspenseful even for those who have absolutely no interest in the sport, like me. This manga is for everybody, and everybody should read it.

I can't believe that "some manga" I took to read only because it was done by creator of Vagabond took over my life for nearly a week. I'm not a basketball fan, I did play a bit in highschool, but nothing special. Yet, the whole story immediately drawn me in, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. So many emotions... True art. 9 because I wish there would be like 20 more volumes, I wish to stay longer with all those people...
Thank you Takehiko Inoue!

I'm a bit biased since I'm a basketball fanatic. But, this is a manga with great plot and character development that anyone can enjoy. My only gripe is that mangaka portrays Japanese people as being ridiculously tall, with crazy hops, and doing insane basketball moves. But then again, I can't really blame him for promoting his own people, and it would be pretty boring if it was ultra realistic. It is a true epitome of sports manga.

Reading This Manga is an Amazing Experience

This manga is amazing. I finished it in 3 days... (pulled two all-nighters)... just because I couldn't put it down. I normally just read comedy and shoujo manga, so it was just boredom that had me picking this up. Never thought I'd be so blown away by it. It is action-packed, touching, inspiring, hilarious, and extremely fun to read.
