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.

Hello everybody, May I ask if the anime is faithfull to the manga and of It covers the entire Story? Thanks



This is the kind of manga that makes me grateful, that I am who I am (manga reader).

An amazing story, written wonderfully.

Loss of words to describe... But my tears says it all... the mix of emotion is overwhelming, especially towards the end..

Even if how many times I've watched the anime and read the manga, the feels are as strong af as the first time I've encountered this masterpiece. I still cheer, shout! Clap! Laugh out loud, and cry so! Sooooooo!!! Much!

I love the art! It was funny the first few chapters but it became awesome af, drool worthy art style as the chapters goes on.

Btw the feels becomes much much! stronger when you read it while playing the soundtracks as bg music

I'm okay with the ending. I think it was done very well, like the outcome of IH game and what happened. They dont have super powers y'know, so those w/c I think is very close to what could happen in reality. Atleast nothing much worst had happened.

Still my #1! Fave manga! & Inoue Takehiko is still #1 Mangaka for me.^^

...and I still want to marry Akira Sendoh.
They still make great manga. But they don't make them this particular flavour. Hats off in respect.
Dive into some terrible art to see if its worth it



wrong page i think.

Oh!! the memories!!

Time to Dive into some terrible art to see if its worth it


it's like you don't even know who takehiko inoue is. i think it's just that you aren't used to the "macho" style that was in style 2 decades ago

Time to Dive into some terrible art to see if its worth it

Tears man that was wonderful

Oh man. I spent so many hours reading this manga.. laughed so much.. was thrilled as hell or awfully nervous about the matches these guys fought.. and i was literally just damn shocked when i realized that i was reading the last chapter and that it would be.. over just like that, i was at a loss i'm being serious here. This manga was hilarious and then again just so realistic at times and sad and exiting but never lost its humour and i honestly don't know what to write right now but to make a long story short: slam dunk is a fucking awesome manga with a great story and brilliant character development. pls read this manga. Just do it. you'll be swamped with manlyness and passion and you'll love it.

I picked this up out of boredom.



This has been the second time I read this and yet Inoue Takehiko-sensei has never failed to amuse me. Such a masterpiece. It made me laughed a lot at the beginning and cried a lot in the end; it's been a while since I got emotional reading manga. Here I want to thanks all the people that made Slam Dunk possible. Special thanks for Inoue Takehiko-sensei and Tensai Manga Project.


If you haven't read this manga, I totally recommended it. Be prepared for the feel trip~ 

I was so devastated when they decided to end it with all the pressure from the so called 'scandal'. For me Slam Dunk still is the best sport manga. 

Stopped reading it 5-6 years ago at volume 21... Rereading it, since I don't remember a thing. Worth it. So. Fucking. Worth. It.

Edit: Finished reading... I wished it was longer. Shohoku team, I will miss you guys. ):
the way this guy draw the sweat make me want to puke.
i had my doubts about the manga because it was a basketball based one but im glad that i ended up reading it cause it was a great manga. now im sad that i finished it lol i want more.
The one shot is making me ROTFL. Especially that page about Rukawa and that page about the Shoyo guys. XDDDDD
very good but the end is to short.
The caracters development is more deeper for some second role caracters...
chapter 5 page 8 that's why you wear your shirt OUTSIDE your pants when playing a random game of basketball...

The best hot blooded sports manga of the 90's that defines my childhood. Dreams, Passion, Growth, Teamwork and Never Giving in till the last second. This is what this manga is all about!
