『Slam dunk』

出典 :

The gold standard of basketball manga is “Slam Dunk” by Takehiko Inoue, which was serialized in “Weekly Shonen Jump”.
It is undoubtedly the best-selling basketball manga in Japan, with a total domestic circulation of more than 120 million copies.
It depicts the growth process of a novice basketball player, Hanamichi Sakuragi, as he joins the basketball club and becomes a basketball man who supports the team.
Heated game scenes drawn with high artistic skills will make your hands sweat after reading it.
The last half of the Sanno fight is a rough job with no dialogue and no sound effects. Even though there is no sound, you can hear the characters’ breathing and the sound of the ball bouncing, which gives you a sense of realism.
It’s still so popular that sequels and anime remakes are desired. If you’re not sure which basketball manga to read, you can’t go wrong with “Slam Dunk”.


出典 :

The author of “BUZZER BEATER” is also the same as the author of “Slam Dunk”, Mr. Takahiko Inoue.
The story takes place in space. The setting of the story is space, where a team of only Earthmen challenges a basketball league full of aliens.
However, the depiction of the game is on par with “Slam Dunk”. All the games are drawn with high artistic skills and are in color. All the matches are drawn in color, and the colored characters come alive in the game.
In 1996, when “BUZZER BEATER” was released, it was said, “It’s impossible for a Japanese to challenge the NBA! The NBA was portrayed as an alien and the Japanese as an earthling, as an antithesis to the negative opinions about the challenge of the Japanese in the NBA.
I recommend reading this book now that the number of Japanese NBA players is increasing.


出典 :

The author of “Real” is also Takehiko Inoue, the same author as the two aforementioned works.
The story is about wheelchair basketball, and the characters face the reality of disability and life. Wheelchair basketball does not receive as much attention as normal basketball.
The struggles and pains of the characters are beautifully depicted by Inoue Sensei’s high level of drawing ability, and there are many aspects of the story that we can empathize with despite the different circumstances. One of the charms of “Real” is that it focuses not only on the characters with disabilities, but also on the surrounding characters who support them.
The depiction of the work as a basketball manga is excellent, but it is also a manga that is worth reading as a human drama.
