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.

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.

All-Time Favourite - Forever

This is, without a doubt, my favourite manga of all time, and I don't even like basketball. Sakuragi is a hilarious, inspirational, amazing combination of cluelessness, cockiness and talent, and he couldn't have a better supporting cast. My only complaint is the ending, although it was inspiring in its own way - the series is too short! I wanted more! I was never ready to part with the characters that I loved so much.

It made me laugh, and it came close to making me cry several times. Don't be scared off by the basketball - the sports scenes are thrilling and suspenseful even for those who have absolutely no interest in the sport, like me. This manga is for everybody, and everybody should read it.

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.

Reading This Manga is an Amazing Experience

This manga is amazing. I finished it in 3 days... (pulled two all-nighters)... just because I couldn't put it down. I normally just read comedy and shoujo manga, so it was just boredom that had me picking this up. Never thought I'd be so blown away by it. It is action-packed, touching, inspiring, hilarious, and extremely fun to read.

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!
