    Slam Dunk

    Slam Dunk, by Takehiko Inoue


    Summary:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The main character of this manga is Hanamichi Sakuragi, who started out as an outcast who fights as a method to gain power and publicity, becoming the leader of a gang. Hanamichi, being very unpopular with girls, has been rejected by them fifty times. Yet, he finds out that Haruko Akagi is the girl of his dreams, and is happy when she's not scared of him like all the other girls he has asked out.

    Haruko, who recognizes Hanamichi's athleticism, introduces him to the Shohoku basketball team. Hanamichi was reluctant to join the team at first because he had no previous background in any sports and thought that basketball was a game for losers (also because the fiftieth girl rejected him for a basketball player). Sakuragi, despite his immaturity and hot temper, proves to be a natural athlete with potential and joins the team in order to impress Haruko and prove that he is worthy of her. Kadae Rukawa - Sakuragi's bitter rival (both on the basketball court and love, even when Rukawa doesn't acknowledge Haruko's crush on him), the star rookie and a "girl magnet" - joins the team at the same time. Hisashi Mitsui, an ex-junior high school MVP, and Ryota Miyagi , a short but fast player, both also rejoin the team and together these four struggle to complete team captain Takenori Akagi's dream of making Shohoku the national champion. Together, these misfits gain publicity and the once little known Shohoku basketball team becomes an all-star contender in Japan.

    this manga is a must read... it has all of the elements of a great manga plus, if u like sports, it does a great job with the games.
    You will be laughing your ass off with all the characters in the manga.... not just the main character ;p

    it's really popular and really good indeed. the drawing style is really effective in conveying movements (especially in the later part of the manga where the art seemed to change and really improved) and the characters are really lovable. it's a good laugh, too. i DL'ed it from stoptazmo.com and it's also complete in mangavolume.com.

    Very nice series. Funny. Very funny.
    And with good game-scenes. A must for sport-series lovers.

    U can easily say SD is ES21's father. But with more legal issues, with NBA... ^_^
