Our Hero is aspiring to be a basketball player since his childhood. Although being short, Haruyoshi joins the basketball club in his school, but always was just the 'errand boy' for the rest.

Will she turn Haruyoshi into a great basketball player?

The art looks familiar.Hope this new serie can cure my disappointment of Over Time got cancelled.
I don't like this manga =/
Sena? Well, looks like this guy really love Basketball already, unlike Sena which knew nothing about Football...
BTW, he gets that ladder stepping training as well, just like Sena ^^

Anyway, I liked it enough to be motivated to translate it, so you guys can go check it out if you want
Yeah, I liked the first impression this manga showed us with this opening chapter. It gave me several moments of being shocked. The only mangas that gave me these kind of impact opening were ES21, SlamDunk, Mx0, GantZ, Great Teacher Onizuka and One Piece.
Hope it will last as long as SlamDunk did, coz I'd be mightily dissapointed if this turned out to be yet another cancelled project...
Off-topic: I've seen 3 cancellation in the period of 2 months. Geez~. Is being laid-off possible in the mangaka profession or something?
Copied from the RTS thread:
I don't see much hope for this.
The first chapter has really nothing interesting about it. The introduction of the chapter made me think it was One Piece, basketball edition. Replace Shanks for the man, Luffy with the child protagonist and the straw hat for the basketball. The characters are boring and really uninteresting. A young protagonist with no balls, no confidence who wants to accomplish something big... Where have I seen that before? The comedy in this manga isn't really... comedy. It's just not funny. The "I WAS SAYING THAT ALL ALONG" jokes can only work for so long
I usually read a few chapters to see whether or not I'd like the series, but I won't for this. There's nothing that shows me this is going to be anything good, so chapter 1 will be my first and last chapter read for this series.
I have always asked myself how people come up with criteria to drop a manga after ONLY 1 chapter. Anyway everyone his own point of view... -> I did it too eg one piece and now I love it all the way
Based on the raw I didn't have a bad feeling but
Gonna read the chapter tonight and I'll know more, just to know what's the best quality scan?

Wooo!!! Awesome first chapter, I'm definately gonna stick with this until this ends. Gotta love the manager, though to me, she doesn't really remind me of Hiruma.
 SCX is a LQ, MangaAddict is a decent MQ.
