If you liked the Slam Dunk manga, the Anime-Planet community thinks you'd like:
They were known as the 'Generation of Miracles' – five basketball prodigies who helped lead Teiko Middle School's basketball team to glory, defeating anyone who got in their way. But a mysterious rumor tells of a sixth, a phantom player who the five prodigies respected greatly. That boy is Tetsuya Kuroko, a freshman at Seirin High and the newest member of the basketball club. Alongside strong teammates such as Taiga Kagami, Kuroko will use his unique skills on the court to help the team defeat old rivals and make their way to the championships.
Both mangas are based on the story of senior highschool basketball teams, and their way to the top of Japan.
Kuroko no Basket (KnB) and Slam Dunk (SD) are similar in several aspects, such as main characters. Sakuragi is playing same position, as Kagami. Both of them are similarly looking, their main power is their jumping, both are quite stupid, thus making funny scenes throughtout the series.
Many KnB's characters have some "unique" powers, which are brilliantly handed, since they are all based on reality (even thought exaggerated little bit). SD lacks something like this.
Since KnB is much newer than SD, I would say that its better in many things than SD, KnB's story isnt as slow-paced as SD's, which makes it more interesting.
Overall, both series are excellent. If you liked one, you will liked the other one as well.
Yeah I totally agree with this recommendation. Both series are quite similar in many different ways.
Both Mangas Deal with High School Basketball. Both focuses on a School who aims to be at top of Nations High School Basketball and Develop their Team with help of New Super Rookies. Sakuragi and Rukawa in SD and Kuroko-Kagami in KnB.
Both deliver high quality of sports satisfaction, SLam Dunk with Old Shcool Basketball and KnB in In New style basketball.
If u like one, u will love other one.
Tomomi is a high school dropout who was tragically responsible for crippling a beautiful girl he had just met; Kiyoharu is an ex track star whose bone cancer confined him to a wheelchair as a child; and Takahashi is newly handicapped due to an accident on his bike, stripping him as captain of the basketball team and his status as the alpha male of his gang of friends. Each of these young men shares something in common – their love for basketball. Though society may look down on them, these new friends will come to terms with themselves and their situations, and show their love of the game.
These mangas both portray basketball as intense, exciting, being written and drawn by the same mangaka, they share the same kind of comedy and art (though Real is by far superiorly drawn), They have very different feelings.
Slam Dunk is about a passionate, young delinquent who falls in love with basket and shares an amazing time with his high school mates. Real however follows a another basket ball delinquent who meets a handicap basketball player who moves like the wind.
If you like sports manga, these are probably the best, both of shounen and seinen.
Both manga are based on Basketball, and both are works of Inoue Takehiko. SD lead is deliquent in highschool who plays to impress a girl, and real lead is high school drop out deliquent who gets associated with Physically disabled basketball players due to his circumstanmes.
Both have struggling moments for leads and team-mates,Along with some bitter losses and mesmurizing wins. One thing that is common throughtout end is Love and Passion towards B-Ball
Ever since Sena was little, everyone has treated him as an errand boy. His childhood friend, Mamori, even has to protect him from bullies all the time, although she's a girl. Fortunately, in order to evade his tormentors, Sena has developed incredibly fast legs; in fact, Sena is so fast that he is noticed by Himura, the quarterback of a failing football team, who promptly tricks him into joining. However, in order to keep other teams from scouting him, and to keep Mamori from finding out that he's in such a dangerous sport, Sena wears an eyeshield and goes by the name of "Eyeshield 21". For someone like Sena, making it in the tough world of football is a challenge like no other, but also the once-in-a-lifetime chance to become someone others respect!
Slam Dunk(basketball) and Eyshield21(American Football), it couldnt get any similar then this.
Both Main characters get into the sport they know nothing about but have great talent fr it. One to Impress the girl he likes(Sakuragi) and other due to being forced by a senpai(Sena).Both the series features senpai's with their last chance to win the Tournaments they dreamt of, and with some new super Rookies which change teams fate.Few Progidys, few idiots,few Deliquints and few hardworkers make a team and challenger other highschool teams.
Though they must endure training from hell to achieve there goals
Like one, Ull love other one
For fans of basketball mangas, these two are a must read. Slam Dunk is more of a classic treasure while Akatsuki is somewhat new. Both offer amazing effort put in by the characters in their quest to be recognized by their surroundings. Excellent reads and not to be missed for a basketball fan.
Both of these manga are about a guy who joins a sports team to impress a girl. Both guys are very similar; they are over-energetic and determined when it comes to impressing their crush, but always fall short even when they excel in their sports.
