When she introduces him to the game of basketball, his life is changed forever...

My favorite part in Slam Dunk was when Sakuragi embarrassed Haruko's brother by taking his pencil!

RE: The first comment --- This is only the first volume of Slam Dunk. Although author Inoue Takehiko has written more serious work (namely REAL, another basketball series, and Vagabond) Slam Dunk is and always will be a 'feel good' 90s sports comedy.

That being said, the story will develop into greatly rendered volumes of sportsmanship and the spirit of teamwork. Sakuragi developes hugely from what he is in Vol. 1. Takehiko writes some great games that any basketball fan will appreciate. Give the series or the anime a chance, this will always be one of the best in the sports anime/manga genre.
