Hanamichi Sakuragi’s got no game with girls—none at all! It doesn’t help that he’s known for throwing down at a moment’s notice and always coming out on top. A hopeless bruiser, he’s been rejected by 50 girls in a row! All that changes when he meets the girl of his dreams, Haruko, and she’s actually not afraid of him! When she introduces him to the game of basketball, his life is changed forever.
To commemorate the 100 Million sales of the series, a one-shot called “10 Days After” was drawn by the author in a classroom at Kanagawa Prefectural Misaki High School in December 2004. This epilogue later published in a special documentary book and Switch magazine in 2005.
