The Synopsis of Slam Dunk
The anime of the series follows the manga story but leaves out the National Tournament games. The protagonist of the anime is Hanamichi Sakuragi. He has an athletic body but not popular with girls.
Haruko Akagi, who recognizes Hanamichi’s athleticism, introduces him to the Shohoku basketball team.
Hanamichi was reluctant to join the team in the first place because he had no prior knowledge of all sports and thought that basketball was a loser’s game (also because the girl rejected him fiftieth was for a basketball player).
Despite his lack of maturity and temperament, Sakuragi proves to be a natural athlete with potential and joins the team to impress Haruko and prove that he is worthy of her.
