* BigFun: Coach Anzai, who's even called a "White-Haired Budda" (and indeed displays budda-like patience when a much less patient Sakuragi practically molests him while begging to get off the bench).

Hanamichi Sakuragi is an incredibly 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]]...

Added DiffLines:

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Shohoku spent everything they got to win against Sannoh that they eventually lose their chance to the overall championship. However, the match finally made the whole Basketball community to realize that Shohoku has evolved from a 'loser team' into a 'very tough team'. Afterwards, everyone still have a good future ahead of them: Akagi and Kogure graduated, Mitsui did as well (but he still hung around to the school before he can get to the university he wanted), Miyagi succeeded Akagi as the Captain, Haruko became Ayako's co-manager, Rukawa is scouted by the international Japanese Basketball team, while Sakuragi willingly underwent his rehabilitation and it'll be just a matter of time until he can return to the sport he's grown to like for real.]]

First published in 1990 in Shueisha's ''Magazine/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.

Added DiffLines:

* ShownTheirWork: Instead of drawing generic white sneakers, Takehiko Inoue gave the protagonist and his [[TheRival rival]] real branded basketball shoes: Rukawa wears the Nike Air Jordan 5, while Sakuragi started the series wearing the Nike Air Jordan VI (the shoes MichaelJordan wore when he won his first NBA Championship), later switching to the Nike Air Jordan 1, the top of the Jordan shoe line (in the original red/black colors, no less)

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.
