In this latest volume, we get to see how the guy’s are not going to get any easy breaks after their last win, because next up is last year’s champions, the pinnacle of Japanese high school basketball, Akita’s Sannoh Kogyo.
As any team who is studying the top team may feel underwhelmed by their scoring prowess and defense, Shohoku knows they are the underdogs, that people will rally against them and are not expected to win or do well against Sannoh. But the guys must drum up their confidence that they can beat Sannoh Kogyo and bring it to the basketball court.
And to see the guys go from bummed out to seeing the spark in their eye as they know they are going to have to put it all on the line to beat this top team is exciting!
As this volume sets up the competitive battle between both high schools, the cool part is just seeing the team dynamics and also seeing Sakuragi showing off but also discovering more about himself as a player. He has been the wild card of Shohoku, but may prove to be their awesome weapon. But that remains to be seen!
As for the manga series, Takehiko Inoue’s illustrations have always been a highlight for me and I was always amazed of how he captured movements of basketball. From the layups, the dunks, the defensive coverage and just the feeling of basketball, he captures it so well in the pages of each manga release.
So for any “Slam Dunk” fan, this is a pretty awesome volume and definitely exciting as the guys must take on the best ranked team at the tournament in order to accomplish their dream!
If you love basketball and you love manga, “Slam Dunk” vol. 25 is recommended!
