  • Ball is Life!!! Best sport anime ever!!
    Best sport anime ever!!!!

    Great story, animation, and message. Episodes are not long and have a lot of comedy. Great story for an old-style anime. It teaches the basics of basketball if you don't know how to. I would love to see a remake or new seasons. Support this anime.

  • Certainly a classic - but not actually very good
    The original manga was apparently hugely influential, and I can well believe that. A decent enough story, with lots of good characters, and packed full of cliches that if they weren't already part of almost every shonen sports series back then certainly are now.

    But the anime is a different matter entirely. Between the technology of the time and the pressure of a weekly TV schedule (go watch ...

  • Slam Dunk: The Best Sports Manga
    Slam Dunk's impact on Japanese basketball culture is very well noted and for good reason. This is easily the best sports manga/anime ever created based on several criteria. Despite the cliches at the beginning of the story, the viewer gets to experience quality character development, a great storyline, and most importantly, a realistic sports anime. I say this because I often see comparisons to ...

    Go for it! Don't worry about the old graphics
    If you are browsing for anime and stumble onto slam dunk, give it a shot. The graphics may be old because the show came out a long time ago, but this anime is really enjoyable. The characters are given obvious flaws rather than the authors trying to give you an ideal character. It makes for some interesting scenarios and funny moments. The intro song is also great and will grow on you.

    Time Was Spent. I had more fun writing the review
    This is the only sports show where there is an "I" in team lol

    The MC
    Basically if Naruto and Asta of Black Clover had a baby
    In the beginning the main character is moderately endearing. However, quickly he becomes quite annoying and a bit pathetic. His basketball skills improve at an incredibly slow rate however the show will remind you repeatedly through other characters ...

  • Slam Dunk:Funny and Exciting
    If you like Basketball, Slam Dunk is a must watch. If you don't know much about Basketball, then it is fine too, since Slam Dunk is more than the sport. It has so many funny moments revolving around the main character "Sakuragi Hanamachi" and you will care about the characters and you root for them to win!!! The BG music is great during the matches and the story is good. Animation is okay for it's ...

  • Awesome!!! Got me hooked on Anime :D
    You fall inlove with every imperfect character. They're all so charming and hilarious. Not one episode will not let you down. :)

    It is so much fun watching everyone grow and actually work together as a team. The show does drag sometimes with too many flashbacks and "thinking out loud"moments at stressful, do-or-die situations (it really makes you think, how they manage to have those thoughts ...

  • An amazing classic ~
    I grew up watching this anime as a kid, however I never finished it. I'm rewatching it now and it's just as good maybe even better because I actually get the comedy now. The ost/openings are also pretty good if I say so myself. The story is about Sakuragi Hanamachi who is a thug whose known to fight a lot, however he meets a girl and she gets him into basketball. He ends up loving the sport and ...

    This is definitely the best Basketball anime so far!
    What if Hanamichi, a delinquent who likes fighting become addicted to Basketball? Even though old, the story is the best! If you are looking for a good anime and didn't care about the quality of the video, watch this. Watch Hanamichi and his teammate conquer Japan and become the strongest team in Japan.
