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.

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

-1 point for making me force myself to get through the first couple of volumes. Sakuragi was so obnoxiously arrogant, I couldn't stand him. Dropped after the first volume. Returned after couple of weeks. Still had to force myself for couple of volumes, where more secondary characters got more space.
-1 point for the ending. I wouldn't say that it has ended too soon, because if it did continue, it would've become stale. Last arc already felt a little bit too drawn out. The main problem is the way how it ended. Some stuff never got resolved and I don't like this kind of open endings.
Other than that, it's a truly great manga.
