He tried to slam her with love, but she dunked his heart. R to L (Japanese Style). Though they initially got off to a rocky start, Hanamichi and Ryota Miyagi quickly form a bond based on their mutual experiences with heartbreak (and being all-around losers when it comes to the ladies). Their unlikely camaraderie also helps in firing up the rest of the Shohoku team and gives everyone a substantial morale boost. This all comes to an abrupt halt, though, when a group of thugs with a score to settle with Ryota crash a practice session. Explosive personalities collide as everyone in attendance braces themselves for an all-out brawl! 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.
Takehiko Inoue is the creator of one of the most popular manga of all time, "Slam Dunk," which has sold over 100 million copies worldwide. He followed that series up with two titles lauded by critics and fans alike--"Vagabond," a fictional account of the life of Miyamoto Musashi, and "Real," a manga about wheelchair basketball. Inoue is the recipient of numerous awards, including the prestigious Tezuka Osamu Culture award and the Media Arts Festival Award. In addition to his work on manga, Inoue has worked on television commercials, character designs for video games, and is the founder of a scholarship to foster Japanese basketball talent.
I had no interest in basketball and no knowledge of the rules, but I am still reading this manga. This manga captured my heart because, in addition to having an interesting storyline, this manga is almost like taking a comprehensive tour of the world of basketball.

But volume 7 is a much different story as a group of thugs who have problems with Ryota Miyagi, have come into Shohoku High School. Disrespect their court by spitting on it, hitting some of their players in the face and using weapons and hurting the players of the team. While blackmailing them, if they fight back, it would be the end of their season.
But for Sakuragi, Rukawa and Miyagi, can they let these thugs disrespect their court and their team without a fight? Will they risk it all?
Of all “Slam Dunk” volumes I have read, this is the volume that is not about basketball but about a team working together and backing up each other like brothers against a group of dangerous thugs.
Overall, “Slam Dunk” is an enjoyable manga series and while this volume is not about basketball, there is a lot of fight action that people will see in this volume. So, if you have warmed up to the characters of the series, you’ll definitely dig this volume!
“Slam Dunk” vol. 7 is recommended!
anime esp after ep 20 & onwards gets very exciting with the b-ball matches. that`s when the anime really comes alive. which is how you should approach( this before reading the manga.
the manga is definitely better but reading it first will ruin the suspense when watching the anime.
the anime will really frustrate you as they stretch out storyline but it really feels great when they show the outcome. knowing the outcome via the manga will ruin the suspense. so the directors did a good job as they literally copied the manga but expanded the time frame.
reading the manga at this point is great as this & next vol is better in manga form vs anime where it took like 5-7 episodes to complete & is the reason i suggest skipping the first 20 eps.
if you had played, then it is going to be more enjoyable & will bring back memories but the writer is gifted and you will still enjoy it if you have not played b-ball. Plus the drawing style after vol 8 and onwards. which i found more platable vs the first 6 vols.
ps the jap vocals are not great which is the surprise here but prob way better than the english vocals hired to do subs. the jap vocal talents all sound like 22yrs vs 15-17yr age. also the jap inuyasha talent is also sakuragi here.
update: jap voice of hikoichi is the same as triggun. unbelievable!
