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 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

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 :)

Read it.

I put off reading this manga for a long time because the cover art looks sweaty and unattractive (it's actually not so). Now that I've read the whole thing, I just want to read more!

This manga is fun, with a strange main character that might anger readers or cause 2nd-hand embarrassment at times. There are many jokes, puns, and slapstick humor weaved evenly throughout every chapter without disrupting the flow of the manga. I actually wanted to cry at many points.

Long story short, I unexpectedly came to love this manga. Slam Dunk is the BEST of the basketball genre--better than Kuroko no Basket and etc in many aspects. Anyways, kudos to the author! Because of Slam Dunk, I became interested in other basketball manga ( and basketball in general ) as well!

Ok, so it's been...what, 7 years since I read it. Yet I still remember it as the best sports manga I've read (granted, I haven't read a whole lot) as well as one of the most hilarious manga I've ever read. I remember trying to watch Dear Boys soon after reading this and I just couldn't, it was just so shit by comparison.
Great amount of drama, hot-bloodedness, comedy, sports and I love that ending. Really, really hope those talks of a sequel after the mangaka is done with Real are true.

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
