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.

This is such an amazing manga. Worth reading all volumes. I'm not the type that reads very long mangas nor shounen actually, but this one was worth the while. The artwork is amazing, I love the characters, I became attached to all of them through the story. This manga made me feel the intensity and power and all emotions of a perseverant basketball team.

This is probably the best basketball anime/manga that will ever come out, even though ending was not the best, it written with a lot of realism. I recommend watching anime and reading this as anime has extras scenes and movies that cover some more depth of some of the characters, especially about Sakuragi. You can tell the mangaka really understood the game, all the rules and styles and incorporate it into this. You don't see basketball animes/mangas with fouls incorporated anymore. As I was reading on, I couldn't stop myself from cheering Sakuragi, just hoping he would do something crazy every episode or chapter. The stunts pulled in there kept me laughing and never once did I think this was boring.

Watched this in Cantonese when I was in Elementary school and now re-watching and reading the manga to finally find out about the nationals. One of the best sports anime/manga ever! There is no need for special moves or crazy abilities to make this good, just hard work and will power to never give up.

This is a must read for all fans of sport related mangas.

At times the plot was purely comical and at others it was heartrending, but by the end of the novel everything fell into place and I was completely satisfied. The combination of comedy with a truly inspirational story left a great impression.

I watched the anime as a kid, and now reading it was epic, even though the last match lasted 3 volumes (or more?) It was amazing! I cried ;___; It was so short!! It should be at least 10 vols longer!

Just Epic, one of the best mangas I've ever read.

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

This is the pinnacle of the sports manga genre. Perfection in every sense of the word. Art isn't so hot in the beginning, but it becomes incredible later on, as is the plot. Its the one manga that keeps me rereading (5 times at last count). Only problem i have with it is its rather abrupt ending, though on retrospect, thats the only way it could end. Just wished it hadnt. Must read for every manga reader, bball fan or not.

I just luv this manga!! i've read it like more than ten times already and I'm still getting excited over the awesomeness of the main characters plays, sure he is cocky, but his cockiness is truly hilarious!! however, it can't be argued that the guy is somewhat a genius!! and in the end.. you just can't end up hating the guy..

I also like the realism of this manga and how Inoue potrays basketball (it's completely different from my expectations and now I became more open minded about basketball).. I won't spoil it anymore.. but for people out there who haven't read it, read it!! if not, you're missing a lot!! even though you dunno basketball you can still enjoy this manga.. and who knows you might end up liking and playing basketball.. I know a couple of my friends did just that cus of Slam Dunk
