Did you know about the title of the work “SLAM DUNK”? Maybe because I was a woman’s only child, I had almost no contact with them… I knew only the name of the work and that it was a manga depicting basketball, but I needed to learn the details.

How did you come to know the name of the work? So-called “net memes” (videos, images, texts, etc., that spread on the Internet). Seeing the work used in a parody-like sense. For example, “Teacher, I want to play basketball.” I was curious to know who was talking to whom or what the background was… So, the image of a youth story about a naughty high school student growing up through basketball was just a rough idea in my head.
