Without a doubt the most famous of all the manga series I’ve posted is Slam Dunk! by Inoue Takehiko. It has far-transcended its own medium and is widely credited with popularizing the sport of basketball in many parts of the world.
It’s the story of a a high school delinquent who, recognized for his athleticism, is introduced to the basketball team. Through Slam Dunk!, Inoue captured the essence of competition – effort, perseverance, teamwork, the bitterness and regret of defeat, as well as the eventual victory, attainment, and friendship found along the way. There’s no manga that better epitomized the youthful enthusiasm, exertion, and love of a discipline than this. As you read this, you’ll also be moved to want to get out there and shoot a basketball.
Tensai Manga Project (TMP) scanlated volumes 1-30 before dropping off the map, thank you TMP and thanks to KusMoG-tsumaranai for capping off the series with the final V31.
-ps I’ve also included Buzzer Beater, a 4-volume webcomic Inoue drew for his website. I’ve collected them all for your viewing pleasure. Cleaning and packaging this series also took quite a bit of time on my part, so please appreciate it and enjoy reading and/or rereading.
