  • It was so popular that many Japanese teenagers began playing basketball after it was published.[3] The author has also used basketball as a central theme in two other series: Buzzer Beater and Real.moreless

    The film series, consisting of 101 episodes, was produced by the TV terrestrial television network and Animation and directed by director **** It was first aired on TV from October 16, 1993 to March 23, 1996. It was later aired on the satellite television network, TV, in addition to four animated movies produced. The cartoon series follows the manga storyline, but leaves out the National Tournament games. The animated movies are separate stand-alone stories.



    The film was originally licensed in North America to the now-defunct! Entertainment and serialized in Japan Comics during 2003 and 2004 before he folded. They briefly chose to release the film on DVD after the comic was discontinued, though the film was also discontinued after only a few volumes. The author is currently streaming episodes of the series on-line for a fee.



    The license has since been picked up by VIZ Media, who confirmed at Comic Con International 2007 that will start publishing the series in September 2008. A preview of the series was published in the December 2007 issue of Great Jump. [4] The Viz version appears to have basketball tips and NBA player profiles, bonus material which did not appear in the version or the imports.



    It was also stated in the April 2008 issue that starting in the next issue, the series would appear in the monthly lineup. Another English version has been published in Singapore by other.moreless
  • Decent ending.

    The battle between Shohoku and the combo team is starting to heat up, especially with Sakuragi showing off his mid range jump shot. He made one more, and Rukawa finally pulled his team back evan. However, with only under a minute left, it was Sakuragi who decided the victor of the game by making a slam dunk. The Shohoku head to the train station in order to compete in the inter high tournament.



    Disappointing end since they didn't show the national tournament, but at least this match wasn't dragged out like the past matches have. And even though it is disappointing that we don't get to see how Shohoku does in the tournament--even though the manga contains it--it's hard to get me disappointed because an anime was incomplete. Only die hard suckiness like Shaman King could give me a sour taste in endings. Though overall, I liked how they gave a recap of some of the great things each Shohoku player has done in the qualifying tournament.moreless
