Slam Dunk, one of the most popular sports anime and manga, will be making a return! Takehiko Inoue has announced that a Slam Dunk anime film is in the works.
Here’s the tweet form Inoue:
A quick summary of Slam Dunk is that it’s a story about Hanamichi Sakuragi, who is considered a delinquent, joins a basketball because of his natural athlete abilities and is trying to impress a girl named Haruko Akagi. Slam Dunk is such a good series, and the fact that it’s returning with a movie makes me happy. I wonder if the movie would be taking place after the series or a retelling. Regardless of what it is, it’s a good day for Slam Dunk fans.
