Ok here goes:

Action/Adventure: Fullmetal Alchemist, Hunter X Hunter
Romance: Akagami no Shirayuki-hime
Sports: Slam Dunk
Comedy: Gintama, One Punch Man. I honestly can´t decide if OPM is more of an action or comedy series, but FMA and HxH have already taken the spot. Still, OPM has excellent comedy.
Thriller: Death Note, Monster
Horror: mostly anything written by Junji Ito like Uzumaki
Sci-Fi: Akira, Ghost in The Shell
Fantasy: Berserk, although I don´t know that many manga with a medieval fantasy setting besides this and Bastard!!, and I think Fairy Tail doesn´t count as medieval fantasy. Still, Berserk is probably the best manga ever made, if not at least one of the best for sure.

Slam Dunk is the best sports it's not even a debate. I can make a case for IPPO but that's me just liking it.


Is slam dunk realistic or does it lean more towards Kuroko no basket?
And what's so great about it?

Vary REAL(every thing can be done in real life.). Story, ART, charters, games, comedy.






And slam dunk was made in the 90s (the golden era of basketball.)

Wait, I thought romance, action, etc were genres and shonen, shoujo, etc were demographics?

Are people getting it wrong?


Yep, but at this point everyone's been talking about it as a genre so I doubt people will ever realize it's a demographic.

When you are best known for almost single-handedly popularizing a sport in your country, you can rest assured you probably did something noteworthy. Takehiko Inoue’s Slam Dunk did just that, bringing basketball to national attention in Japan and winning awards from publishers, fans, and the Japanese Basketball Association along the way. A true fan of the sport, Inoue leveraged the popularity into the Slam Dunk Scholarship Program run by its publisher Shueisha. Not bad for only his third best manga.

I think you'd missed one of CR article recently :
