THE FIRST SLAM DUNK is set to premiere in Japan on December 3
In a three-pointer of eco-consciousness, the upcoming Slam Dunk anime film, THE FIRST SLAM DUNK, has started a new promotional campaign in a bunch of sports stores in Shibuya and Harajuku. While that's not what scores for this unique collab, it's the fact that the visuals are printed on old flooring from Japanese school gymnasiums!
The five Slam Dunk visual boards can be found at: White atelier BY CONVERSE Harajuku Store (#7), Asics Harajuku Flagship Store (#14), TOKYO 23 (#11), NIKE HARAJUKU (#10) and CONVERSE TOKYO Shibuya Store (#4). All five went up today with no date for the end of the collaboration at this time.
The original Slam Dunk TV anime aired from 1993 to 1996, with four anime films being spun off from the original anime. You can catch an on-demand replay of the TV anime right here on Crunchyroll, which describes the series as such:
Hanamichi Sakuragi, an entering freshman at Shohoku High, holds a record for being rejected by 50 girls during middle school. Ever since the last girl turned him down for a guy on the basketball team, Sakuragi's been traumatized by the sport.
