The anime series was broadacast in Latin America in late 1990s-early 2000s, where it earned great popularity and is still very well-loved (partially because of a ''[[SuperlativeDubbing fantastic]]'' [[SuperlativeDubbing dub made in Mexico]]). The manga is still very popular in South Korea, where it is said it has inspired a generation of players. Reruns of the series also occur every few years in the basketball-obsessed Philippines, where the series is a favorite even among usually non-anime-watching demographics.

Hanamichi Sakuragi is a extremely tall [[RedHeadedHero red-haired]] JerkWithAHeartOfGold (the "gold heart" part often [[SlaveToPR hidden from the public]]) and a bit of a [[{{Delinquents}} delinquent]], who has been rejected by ''fifty'' girls while in Junior High School due to his fearsome fame. The last one, [[NiceGirl Yoko Shimamura]], confesses that she rejected him because she was in love with Oda, a player from the basketball team, so Hanamichi hated that sport with a big passion. Naturally, when in his very first day in High School someone asks him if he likes basketball, he would be very happy to turn to the idiot and give him [[UseYourHead a big headbutt]]...

First published in 1990 in Shueisha's ShonenJump, ''SlamDunk'' became extremely popular and set many standards in sport manga, with a storyline that balanced comedy and drama. 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.

%% * AwesomeButImpractical: Sakuragi's 'Skull Dunk'. It's awesome, but won't get you anywhere in the middle of a basketball match. You'll get a foul and, depending on the case, you might even get the player on the receiving end unconscious.

%% * AwesomeButImpractical: Sakuragi's 'Skull Dunk'. The 'Slam Dunk' for Sakuragi. It's awesome, but won't Akagi explains to him that is rare that opponents will enable them to get you anywhere in so close to the middle of a basketball match. You'll get a basket and in fact are rare times when Sakuragi can performing this. An example is the his 'Slam Dunk' over Shoyo's Hanagata that was pretty memorable; too bad it was an offensive foul and, depending on the case, you might even get the player on the receiving end unconscious.and also Sakuragi's fifth foul (again).



%% * UglyGuyHotWife: Anzai and his wife.
