synopsis of Slam Dunk:
Hanamichi Sakuragi, infamous for his temper, massive height, and fiery red hair, enrolls at Shohoku High, hoping to finally get a girlfriend and break his record of being rejected 50 times in a row in high school. However, his notoriety precedes him, leading to most of the students avoiding him. Shortly after certain events, Hanamichi is left with two unshakable thoughts: “I hate basketball” and “I desperately need a girlfriend.”
One day, a girl named Haruko Akagi approaches him without knowing his troublesome ways and asks if he likes basketball. Hanamichi immediately falls head over heels for her, letting out a fervent affirmation of her. She then takes him to the gym, where she asks if he can do a “Slam Dunk”. In an attempt to impress Haruko, he takes the leap from her, but goes overboard and hits his head on the blackboard. When Haruko informs the captain of the basketball team about Hanamichi’s near-inhuman physical abilities, he slowly finds himself drawn into the camaraderie and competition of the sport that he previously resented.
