Mangaka Takehiko Inoue Slam Dunk Announces New Anime Movie

Mangaka Takehiko Inoue announced on his Twitter account on Thursday that his basketball manga Slam Dunk will be getting a film. Inoue did not reveal whether the film will come in anime or live-action format, but the film's official website lists anime studio Toei Animation in the details, confirming the film as an anime film.

Currently, only a few details are known about the film. Not yet stated whether this film will be in the form of animation or live action. In fact, no one is tied down to the project yet, but it seems that plans for a Slam Dunk comeback are in the works.

This will be the first time Slam Dunk will appear on the small or big screen in decades. The anime's final installment was released in July 1995 with a 40-minute film.

The TV anime series Slam Dunk ended a year later after debuting in October 1993. And for the manga, the series ended in June 1996 after Inoue first published it in October 1990.

The new film could be a kind of reboot for Slam Dunk, but others hope it will have an original story. Inoue is still very close to the series, so it's not hard to imagine him writing an original story for the project.

But, for now, fans will have to wait for more details.

Slam Dunk itself is a Japanese sports manga series that tells the story of a basketball team from Shohoku High School in the Shonan area, Japan. The series appeared in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump from October 1990 to June 1996, with the chapters compiled into 31 tankobon volumes.

The manga was adapted into an anime television series by Toei Animation which was broadcast from October 1993 to March 1996 and has been broadcast worldwide, gaining a lot of popularity especially in Japan, several Asian and European countries.

The manga Slam Dunk has sold over 121 million copies in Japan alone, making it one of the best-selling manga series in history. In 1994, the series received the 40th Shogakukan Manga Award for the shonen category.

In 2010, Inoue received special praise from the Japan Basketball Association for helping to popularize basketball in Japan.
