Reads R to L (Japanese Style). He tried to slam her with love, but she dunked his heart.
_Shoyo's ace, Fujima, drops himself into the lineup and quickly helps his team retake the lead from Shohoku, and despite struggling with fatigue, Mitsui stays on the floor as well. Realizing that they are the keys to winning the game, coach Anzai focuses on both Mitsui's scoring finesse and Hanamichi's monstrous rebounding, but with only five minutes left on the game clock, Shohoku will need to deliver, and fast. Which player will ignite the spark that will carry Shohoku on to victory? And does Mitsui have enough stamina left to hit some crucial three-pointers?
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 Cultural Prize 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.
A bit worried if they think that Hanamichi’s way of talking is normal, though.

Volume 26 of Takehiko Inoue’s “Slam Dunk” explores the Shohoku High School strategy in taking on the A-ranked Sannoh Kogyo. Instilling confidence in the team but making sure to adjust to Sannoh Kogyo’s defensive strategy and that is by utilizing Mitsui as a deep 3-point threat and Sakuragi as a jump shooter.
But its the swagger and confidence we see in Shohoku, who are not afraid to back down against the defending champions and showing that no matter how much the champs adjust offensively or defensively, that Shohoku has an answer to the challenge.
What’s interesting is seeing both teams send in their unknown players. For Sannoh Kogyo, they are testing the massive height of their player Kawata who excels under the basket but for Shohoku, it’s all about Sakuragi who has trained so hard, to now show he’s more than a dunker and can shoot jumpshots. But his first challenge is figuring out how to defend against Kawata.
As this volume sets up the first half of the competition, the thrill of the game of basketball is quite evident in the pages of volume 26 of “Slam Dunk”. With a total of five volumes left in the manga series, Takehiko Inoue goes all out as the underdogs, Shohoku High continue with their dreams of winning a basketball tournament. Can they do it?
As for the manga series, Takehiko Inoue’s illustrations have always been a highlight for me and I was always amazed of how he captured movements of basketball. From the layups, the dunks, the defensive coverage and just the feeling of basketball, he captures it so well in the pages of each manga release.
So for any “Slam Dunk” fan, this is a pretty awesome volume and I’m looking forward to the second half of the competition which will continue in volume 27 of “Slam Dunk”.
Overall, if you love manga and love basketball, “Slam Dunk” is a manga series that I easily recommend!
