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.

I don't understand why people would rate this manga 1, and no explanation on top of that. It's definitely one of the best manga ever, and one of my favorites. It's a classic, and the fact that it's not typical like other sport manga is more reason to love it. And as some comments said, the ending is absolutely amazing!

I would love if there's gonna be Slam Dunk II (I'm sure other fans also ^_^), because I want to see more team work from Sakuragi-Rukawa. I want to see Shohoku rules with those two as the pillars. As Anzai-sensei said, they could be the number one pair in the country.

Great sports manga. Very funny but also sad.... maybe not for everyone but there were some sad passages which nearly made me cry.... essecially this *peep* ending... i nearly killed myself, but hey to be able to get those emotions out of his reader, INOUE Takehiko is simply great !!

still hoping for a continuation of this masterpiece !

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

This was one of the original series that got me into manga/anime back when the first few episodes of the anime version came out, and I have to say it still holds the spot as one of the best sports/comedy mangas even now. Sure the ending is a bit unexpected but it does leave a bittersweet taste and leaves things to be looked forward to.

First I was really sceptical about this manga, and the first volume wasn't that great. But it became better and better and after finishing it I can say this is the best sports manga out there. I can´t find words to describe how great it is, it's simply an amazing piece of art. It would've been great if there had been another 30 volumes.I don`t rate very much with a ten but this one is better than that, ah I love it. If you like sports manga you will love this one but if you like basketball you will worship it.
