        "This is my all-time favorites sports anime from its witty jokes to its inspiring stories and dialogues. It will teach you many valuable moral lessons in life such as establishing strong bonds with your friends and to never give up despite the hardships. This has been part of my childhood. Once i get a family I will let my son to watch this to teach them some life lessons."

        "I found out about Slam Dunk when this anime aired on a local TV network in the Philippines dubbed in Tagalog which is my native language. That time this aired internet wasn't widely used so I had to wait everyday to watch this on TV...What frustrated me that time was an entire week of episodes will just be about how Sakuragi will shoot the basketball lol."

        "This is a great classic sports anime series! The animation is great and the story line is even better! Too bad the series was cut short as open-ended. I wish they'll continue Slam Dunk and do a crossover with Kuroko no Basuke :3"
