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.

takes a bit to warm up to
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
Fast, Intense, Action-packed. This is shounen/sport at it's best. Characters are so-so but you'll love them anyway.
what can i say?!
Mmmm wayywayy better than the anime.. a must read to guys learning to play bball.. *thumbs up* i liked the ending.. i wish he should have made more.. like a part 2 or something hahaha ------------------------------
Artwork : 8.5 Characters: 10 Story:10

Just finished reading, i was truly thrilled by this manga. And moved... Althought i don't like basketball, it doesn't matter with this manga. The spirits of the characters made me love this manga, and appreciate the context (bball)
It's also very funny! That Hanamichi is a real funny baldy haha :) This work is better than Vagabond, because you feel the mangaka really likes basketball :)
Simply the one of the very best
Hilariously Funny and Gripping!
Another 10/10 plz this serie is the greatest
this is the best manga ever.i have read it for so many times and i have watched the anime for the endless time? dun miss this good read. it is worth it!
The best basketball manga ever
This series is definitely top on my list. Anyone and everyone should give this series a try. If you don't know anything about basketball, you'll learn with Hanamichi as the story progresses. If you're not really interested in basketball, still give it a try because the memorable characters (as well as the plentiful comedy) will surely keep you flipping through the pages. The art is also amazingly realistic and detailed.
One of the greatest sports manga
R u sure u have not heard of Slam Dunk? Plz do urself a favour & buy this. Ok!
