The basic concept behind the TV Show called Slam dunk is that it's about a basketball team from Sh?hoku High School. The show is written Takehiko Inoue. In particular, you see the story of Hanamichi Sakuragi; however, he is the delinquent outcast on the show. He has a bad influence on people because he has decided to join a gang, and be its leader. Even though he is in a gang, he is not popular with the ladies. He has been rejected by women over 50 times. When he meets Haruko Akagi, he instantly falls in-love with her because she doesn't seem to be scared of him.
Unlike the other girls, this girl actually seems to like him. Haruko Akagi convinces his friend Hanamichi to join the basketball team because Haruki recognizes Hanamichi as a talented sports player. Hanamichi doesn't want to belong to the team at first because he does not think he will be accepted. He doesn't have any previous experience playing sports, and so he wonders if he will get accepted. He also feels that he shouldn't be on the basketball team because so many women have rejected his offer to date.
Even though he is quick to get a temper and can act extremely immature, Sakuragi makes the decision to join the team and proves to be a natural athlete. Sometimes what you think will happen does not actually happen. Haruko wants to prove that she should be interested in Sakuragi. He is aware that he loves basketball just as much as he loves Haruko.
Hisashi Mitsui and Royota Miyagi both decide to rejoin the basketball team, and this allows the team to become competitive again. The basketball team is able to join once the misfits get together, and the Shohoku basketball team is able to become really good in Japan. This is just some of the action that happens in the TV show as something news is always happening each week. You will have to watch the show to see what happens week to week. You will like the show if you decide watch. Each episode is packed with interesting drama, and that is what has allowed the show to be a success.
