About the DVD
Hanamichi Sakuragi is a high school punk who hates basketball, mostly because the girls he likes always prefer basketball players to him. Things change, however, when he meets the cute and available Haruko Akagi. She loves basketball and thinks Hanamichi has the height and prowess to play. Hanamichi, quite willing to settle for collateral affection, immediately takes up the sport, never mind the fact that he doesn’t know the rules, cannot dribble and is constitutionally unsuited to teamwork and sportsmanship. If playing basketball will get Haruko to look at him then he’ll be a basketball star! However, a weird thing happens to Hanamichi while struggling to make the team and play the game: he kind of starts to like it! And what’s more, he’s getting good.

My Take on the DVD
I had never heard of this series before, but I am always game for a new cartoon so I tried it out. For anyone that likes basketball, this is a series that will keep you going. It is filled with action and a pretty solid plot line too. I liked that the main character has to work to get good at the spot and shows the viewer that it does not come naturally to him. The message behind this is strong and is something that any parent would want their aspiring athlete to hear. Working hard pays off!
