Slam Dunk movie: A number of posters for the upcoming sports Slam Dunk Movie were discovered to have been stolen from many theatres in Japan not too long ago. On January 7th, 2021, Takahiko Inoue made the announcement regarding the Slam Dunk Movie on his official Twitter handle.
This was done in reference to the movie. Even though it had been known for a very long time that the Slam Dunk Movie will be released in 2022, there was still no official word on when exactly the Slam Dunk Movie would be released.
However, the posters that were stolen reveal the upcoming release date for the Slam Dunk movie. Those who aren’t familiar with Slam Dunk are missing out on one of the funniest and most entertaining sports manga series.
From October 1990 to June 1996, a total of 31 volumes of the Slam Dunk manga were released, making it the best-selling manga of all time. With over 170 million copies in circulation, it currently sits at the top of the list.
Fans of sports anime enjoy watching Slam Dunk because it has been adapted into various movies and has its own television series with 101 episodes.
What Is The Storyline of Slam Dunk Movie?
The life of Hanamichi Sakuragi, a young man who is tall and has been rejected by girls on several occasions, serves as the primary focus of this anime series. He enrols at Shohoku High School in the hopes of finding a girlfriend there, but he is unsuccessful in this endeavour.
He is unable to pursue his feelings for Haruko Akagi because she is already in a relationship with Kaede Rukawa, the school’s most popular basketball player.
He decides to start taking basketball lessons in the hopes that it will woo Haruko and cause her to develop feelings for him.
The only thing that matters to Hanamichi right now is overtaking Kaede and establishing himself as the best basketball player on the team.
