    Legendary basketball anime

Not knowing her brother is the Captain of said team creates problems along with hating his team-mate Rukawa who is the object of his crush's desire despite Rukawara not knowing nor caring. At least that's how it starts, Sakuragi soon ...

  • Appeals to everyone.
    The best sports anime have been found mostly inside the sport of basketball. Kuroko no Basket was a hit when it came out with its first episodes and manga, and it still succeeds today. However, there's also Slam Dunk with number 10 as the main star! This kid seems like a major pushover and possibly a DISGRACE to the sport in his first few appearances; but when he gets hyped up about playing in a ...

    Slam Dunk is a Slam Dunk
    It's funny and entertaining and you'll be sad when it's over. There are no bad guys, everyone has an interesting story and you want everyone to win.

  • fun show I recommend it!
    Very entertaining. Because middle school is well behind me, I'm happy to have found a more mature series here on Crunchyroll. These guys didnt look like kids. The focal point was the game- not school. The animation may be dated but the story is timeless. I cant think of another show where the star is an idiot who constantly proclaims himself a genius- and you still like him for it. This had a ...

  • It's a Slam Dunk! Buzzer!
    this is by far the most thrilling anime series of all time. I first watched it when I was a kid about 10 years ago. I only watched until the episode where they lose their match against Kainan(ep.54 maybe). I just watched the rest (from 55 to 101 I believe) In two days. This anime is just too good to not watch. If you miss it. your missing the best anime of all time (my favorite is Naruto) but at ...

    Possibly Best Basketball anime out there...possibly best sports anime too
    Genre: Sports/Comedy

    Theme: Many, consisting of teamwork, trust, adapt, believe, and change to name a few.

    Slam Dunk has to be easily one of the best anime/manga series in the category of basketball, and possibly even for the category of sports. Some might say it is the base (as in construction base of a house) of the rest of the sport anime/manga that is being created or that were made. You ...

  • Nothing but legendary
    This anime has everything an anime fan can ever ask for. After watching this series a struggled to find an anime that can satisfy me like this one did. Masterfully, blending in sports, friendship, humor, love and action without being reduced to a pile of confusing mush the 101 episodes flew by. I highly recommend this anime and this manga to all anime fans of all ages.

    Delinquent Becoming a Passionate Sportsman
    Like any typical teenager, Sakuragi tried to savor his youthful years--being in love and being on top of the food chain. Who knew both of them could coexist when he meant the girl of his dreams. He tried to impress her by joining the basketball team; and met many obstacles along the way. Like being the ideal basketball player that he wanted his crush to look upon, learning how to play right, ...

  • An awesome classic sports+comedy
    I watched this anime many years ago so might be thinking like me back then: "Should I watch this series? I don't follow basketball that much." Let me tell you, you should watch it! This show is not only about basketball is also about competition and friendship. Is about how if you try hard enough you can improve your own skills. The show is not sports 100% of the time, there is a lot of comedy. ...

  • This'll make you laugh like there's no tomorrow
    I know, it's a sports anime, but I can't remember laughing this much watching an anime before. I continued watching this for the laughs just as much as the story. Don't let the outdated animation fool you. This one's something every anime lover should watch at least once. It's a classic and you'll fall in love with the characters.
    Games do last quite a few episodes, so be warned. But it's anime, ...
