virginiaeranet.com -The trailer for The First Slam Dunk film adapted from the comic “Slam Dunk” by Takehiko Inoue was officially released via the Toei YouTube channel, Saturday (5/11/2022).
The film, which was worked on by Toei Animation and DandeLion, is predicted to be a very different version compared to the 1993 anime version.
The 1-minute teaser shows scenes from the five main players in the Slam Dunk film which are in the spotlight, namely Sakuragi Hanamichi, Miyagi Ryota, Takenori Akagi, Kaede Rukawa, and Hisashi Mitsui.
The First Slam Dunk Yang is currently airing from December 3, 2022 in Japan.
The First Slam Dunk tells the story of Hanamichi Sakuragi who joins the high school basketball team named Shohoku.
Hanamichi Sakuragi is described as a young man who has extraordinary physical abilities. At first, he didn’t like basketball until Haruko Akagi managed to persuade him to get involved in the high school basketball club.
Because of his abilities, he was appointed as the leader of the school gang. Even so, Hanamichi is not popular among the girls.
In fact, he can’t even get the girl of his dreams, Haruko Akagi, even though he has expressed his feelings many times.
Apart from being interspersed with high school romance, the storyline of The First Slam Dunk is even more exciting when Hanamachi and the Shohoku basketball team compete in competitions.
In the Shohoku basketball club, there is also the figure of Kaede Rukawa who is known as a super player since middle school. He then becomes a team with Hanamachi and makes the story of this manga more exciting and full of laughter.
Quoting from Anime News Network, on Thursday, December 1 2022, this film will be screened in IMAX in 40 theaters across Japan, and Dolby Atmos screening in 34 cinemas.
In addition, this film has also been scheduled to be screened in Dolby Cinema starting December 10, 2022.
There is still no information whether it will be broadcast worldwide, considering that there are many fans of this manga and anime around the world.
This film also employs well-known Japanese actors and actresses as voice actors, including Kenta Miyake as Takenori Akagi, Subaru Kimura as Hanamichi Sakuragi, Shinichiro Kamio as Kaede Rukawa, Jun Kasama as Hisashi Mitsui, and Shugo Nakamura as Ryota Miyagi.
