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.

Well i watched the anime and manga, and at the end of both i got a little upset , because there still things not ended yet, like what is gonna be sakuragi future as player, he was improving so well , i think a sequel should be made, cause it is a great manga but the ending is not that proper, i like the new manga that the autor made , but still would be nice Slam Dunk having a sequel.

Art is top notch. Characters that are believable, likeable and can understand and get behind. Very funny. Good character-driven story. Tense and exciting confrontations in the basketball court. Perhaps I'm a tad let down by the ending, but not that much. If you like sports manga, funny manga or simply manga in general - read this. Inoue Takehiko is one of the best current mangakas.

For me this is simply why I read manga and what makes them so much better than american or any other comics . This is the 'Friends' version of manga haven't met one guy who has not loved it . Like all fans I hope for the day when Inoue san picks up the story again .

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 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.

When i first read it i was a bit skeptical, and the artwork to me needed some time to get used to but man, it has a great ending (although i wish there was a part II for it), this is without a doubt an amazing sports manga, and it teaches you a lot of the rules for basketball, makes me want to play =D

Oh man i am writing this review 10 years after i first read it, so my memory might be a bit scewed but i had to do it better late than Never!

The MC at first might appear to be Annoying and a bit Cute Cocky but believe me the Charm wears ON pretty quick...around 30 chapters in i already fell in love with him ...his quirkiness and the comedic situation that he himself forces into is GOLD!

Side characters are also well developed and they have their own reasons and Background that gets revealed as the series progresses. This is the BEST chemistry i have seen for a Sports manga...

One of the most standout arcs is towards the final and that is what pretty much defines this manga for me...i won't spoil the final match details but lets just say that it is the most Intense and exhilarating thing you will ever read ! Guaranteed !!!
