Summary and Preview

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...

Review by baboysai
When I read this manga, I realized that however unparalleled the art, and how exciting Inoue made the games, I found more to it than just the score they had to beat, or the nationals that the team had to win. There was more to the story than just basketball. The story was first about the dream. That there had to be a goal, and once locked, the discipline one had to undertake to reach that goal. I came to understand about athletes more, and respecting them. In this way Inoue was also successful in making the readers empathize with the characters, to feel the happiness in victory, and taste the sadness of defeat. Permalink " "
Review by Tensai_Sakuragi
Simply awesome.

This is one of the most brilliant, moving and epic(yes, basketball can be epic *as hell*. Don´t believe me? Read this shit.) mangas you´ll ever read.
Takehiko Inoue´s enthralling story is full of passion, effort and personal growth.

Hanamichi Sakuragi is one of the best shonen mais characters you´ll ever see.
In a few words: a genius. Permalink " "
