Slam Dunk

Slam Dunk (スラムダンク) is a sports-themed manga series written and illustrated by Takehiko Inoue about a basketball team from Shōhoku High School. It was adapted into an anime series by Toei Animation which has been broadcast worldwide, enjoying much popularity particularly in Japan, several other Asian countries and Europe. As of 2012, Slam Dunk had sold 120 million copies in Japan alone, making it one of the best-selling manga series in history. In 2010, Inoue received special commendations from the Japan Basketball Association for helping popularize basketball in Japan.
Now, from the first few episodes, you can obviously see that this anime, which received huge acclaim at its time, has a clear goal to spread the popularity of basketball in a country where basketball was almost non existent. For true fans of this game, who are hoping to see some great moves in this series, a disappointment awaits. The problem is that Japanese studio emphasized areas of basketball which aren’t necessarily the most important and beautiful. For those true fans, it would be like watching a “learn-how-to-read” video when you’re 20 years old. From this side, the anime looks really outdated. However, what amazed me the most, was that the jokes were not outdated at all. If you don’t like the basketball scenes, watch it as a comedy and, trust me, you won’t be disappointed. Through time, you get used to the characters and even start enjoy their stories. We’ve all movies about American high school teams who MADE it. This was something new for me and I did not give up on it. Love, basketball, friendship, competition and lots of laughs – this is what you can expect (and should receive) from Slam Dunk.
