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...

- Includes a oneshot called 10 Days After.

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

I couldn't believe how this manga could move me so much!! At first I thought that since it's just a sports manga, I could just skim through it but little did I know that I would get sucked into its story.

I must say Inoue Takehiko is a very good story teller and I give him props just because some parts made me laugh out loud. I can also tell you that the more I read, the more excited I became, its like I was watching their games from a spectators point of view and yet know what the players are thinking.

Also, the more chapters I read, I can tell that the mangaka's drawing is also improving. Plus, I even got to know a little bit knowledge about basketball too!! biggrin

Phenomenal manga. I am reading this for the 3rd time and I still cannot get sick of it. The character development, the plot, the games; I can't express in words how good this manga is.

It doesn't matter if you don't really understand BasketBall or not to enjoy this manga. Some chapters are so hilarious. I keep on laughing throughout the chapter.

incredible! this series really moved me, and is still my favorite manga series to date. the story is absolutely hilarious, and even while the games are going on, there are fantastically touching scenes. the only downside would probably be the fact there are many characters who have the potential for character development, but takehiko doesnt explore them at all. but the development for the main character outshadows that by far. Ten points!

so many thinks nothing to do with basketball
but it was funny
thats all

no more less than 10-rated... i love inoue's idea in making basketball game funnier & lovable... i heard that bcos of Slam Dunk, the rate of people playing basketball in Japan increased... it just proved that this manga is inspiring people & even around the world... i love sakuragi's wackiness.. he never get serious, though.. lol
