The anime movie ” THE FIRST SLAM DUNK, “which is scheduled  to be released on December 3rd, is attracting much attention.

The sacred place of slam dunks is here! Male readers in their late 30s or older who were fans of Weekly Shonen Jump in the 1990s probably don’t need an explanation.

The manga “SLAM DUNK,” which depicts the growth of basketball player Hanamichi Sakuragi and the team’s rapid progress, is revived with the latest technology in the Shohoku High School basketball club.

The original author, Takehiko Inoue, is in charge of directing and writing the script, so there must be many fans who are looking forward to it. It was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from 1990 to 1996, and 26 years have passed since the serialization ended.

Before the movie’s release, “‘SLUM DUNK’ Jump,” which was released by Shueisha Mook on November 8th this year, ran at the top of Amazon’s best-selling rankings and was delivered to bookstores and convenience stores nationwide. Older fans and younger generations who don’t know about the time of serialization are all curious. So why is “SLAM DUNK” still loved so much after so long? I want to think about it in terms of characters, stories, and themes.
