First published in 1990 in Shueisha's ''Magazine/ShonenJump'', ''Slam Dunk'' became an instant phenomenon throughout Japanese culture and set many standards in sport manga; becoming one of ''JUMP'''s "Golden Trio" alongside ''Manga/DragonBall'' and ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', bringing sales up to their record all-time high of over six million copies nationwide. It subverted the then-usual trope of [[InstantExpert instant sport genius]] with a main character who, while having a lot of potential, is a real newbie and is treated as one even when he makes astounding progress. It was also written under the real supposition that very few people would know the sport, using the protagonist road to learn a new sport as a way to explain the rules and tactics, and even adding extra blurbs for bigger inside.

* GoldfishScoopingGame: During the festival episode. Trying to find Haruko, who disappeared with her two friends, he finds her at the fish grabbing game. She wanted to help a little boy and girl get one but admits she's clumsy. Sakuragi of course boasts his genius and tries unsuccessfully several times, soon running out of money. He didn't give up and insists the guy "put it on his tab" and furiously swishes around to get the fish. The owner of course is not pleased and gives him whatever fish he wants.
