Hello everyone, everything good? From now on I will assume that you like basketball or anime that involve this sport of giants. Well, the biggest anime reference we have so far is Kuroko's Basketball, but I knew that this is not the only anime with this sport? Now I will give you a list of basketball anime.
That's right, basketball anime. However, they are not as popular as kuroko, but that doesn't mean they aren't good either. I know of several good anime that didn't become popular, but that's not the case. I will go through the list and it is up to you whether or not you will attend.
If you have already watched any of these on the list, leave your comment saying what it was, and share the article to help us. Now let's stop the small talk and get straight to the list.
Slam dunk - A basketball anime classic
To start off on the right foot, let's go with a classic. Slam Dunk tells the story of Hanamichi Sakuragi, who is famous for his temper, tall stature, and red hair. He enrolled at Shohoku High, hoping to get a girlfriend or break his record of being rejected 50 times in a row in high school.
His notoriety precedes him, however, leading him to be shunned by most students. After a few events, Hanamichi is left with two unshakable thoughts: "I hate basketball" and "I desperately need a girlfriend".
But one day, a girl named Haruko Akagi approaches him without any knowledge of his problem and asks him if he likes basketball. Hanamichi immediately falls in love with her, letting out a heated statement. Soon he finds himself in the school gym where the girl asks him if he can show her a slam dunk.
And in an attempt to impress Haruko, he takes the leap, but goes over his head, hitting his head on the blackboard. When Haruko tells the captain of the basketball team about Hanamichi's near-inhuman physical abilities, he slowly finds himself drawn into the camaraderie and competition of the sport he's already held a grudge against.
Comments about Slam Dunk
This is a basketball classic, I didn't particularly know there were other basketball anime. But I was hugely wrong, of course there aren't many, but there are some and among these some Slam Dunk is the most popular. I watched only 3 episodes and I already liked it's not in vain that it's opening the list.
Apart from that there is still romance in the story, which can be very interesting if you develop it more deeply and not just leave it parked. In my opinion, everything is better when you have a well-written novel, too bad not everyone has it, but hope is the last to die. Anyway, watch this anime and give me spoilers.
Ro-kyu-bu! - Basketball Anime with Lolis Moe
Hasegawa Subaru joined the basketball club at Nanashiba High, only to have his hopes dashed when the team is suspended after the captain is suspected of having inappropriate feelings for the coach's underage daughter. Just for the record that the daughter was still a child (that's a chain).
Frustrated and blocked by bad luck, Subaru unexpectedly finds an opening to his talent with hoops when his aunt, who happens to look like a child, asks him to take on the task of coaching a girls' basketball club. of being children) – a Ro-Kyu-Bu!.
She asks him for this favor because he managed to take his team from elementary, which was extremely weak, to the semifinals of the student championship. But can an aspiring superstar find true satisfaction in playing the sixth man in a team of five girls?
Comments about Ro-kyu-bu!
If you are one of those who love to see cute lolis in anime this is the perfect anime because it mixes these cute little girls and basketball. A nose bleed combination. Ahiru no Sora and lolis in droves, and to improve they still have their personal challenges to overcome and goals to achieve.
Don't worry because I don't have this kind of tendency, I just used to go for cute things like Natsume yuujinchou's Madara (only those who watched this anime will know what I'm talking about). Anyway, the plot is very well explained in the synopsis, but it doesn't say the challenges he faces to train these girls, and I won't release this spoiler either.
Basquash - A basketball anime with robots?
On the planet Earthdash, its inhabitants gaze at its moon and the technologically advanced moon city of Mooneyes in awe. Dan JD, a boy who lives in Rollingtown on the surface of Earthdash, is caught up in Bigfoot Basketball - a fast-paced sport played with giant Bigfoot robots.
Comments about Basquash
I've seen robots fighting, flying, shooting, exchanging punches, using weapons and many other things, which is no surprise to anyone as this is quite common, but robots playing basketball is the first and only time I've seen this phenomenon.
BUT, as weird is the plot is how good it is, and it gets even better as the episodes you watch. However, 1 episode is enough to not want to stop watching and marathon the more than 20 episodes he has. I've watched it all and I'm thinking about repeating the dose because it's so good.
Ecchi, a little romance, charismatic characters, a great plot behind it, some drama points, moments of euphoria and everything an anime needs to be good. And as they say in the anime "THIS IS BASKETBALL".
The artigo is still half finished, but we recommend opening it to read the following later:
Buzzer beater - Basketball anime with aliens?
Hideyoshi is a homeless boy living in New York in the near future, who survives by agitating other kids at basketball games. But now he's been called up to a professional team – a professional team with a single goal. There was a time when humans dominated the game of basketball.
But times have changed, and now physically superior aliens have taken over the game, and there are almost no human players left. But Hideyoshi's team - the first fully human team to compete in the Space League - aims to change all that and bring the championship back to Earth.
Buzzer beater reviews
This is that typical character who plays the self-assured idiot who thinks he's the best at what he does. I won't say he is bad at basketball, on the contrary he is a genius but he lacks the humility to admit that he needs to improve. However this is a poison and a remedy at the same time.
After all after so long without humanity having a chance against humans, it's always good to have someone who isn't afraid to face the aliens. The anime has the old graphics but it's not horrible quality, what bothered me a little was the character design.
Anyway, I advise anyone who wants to watch this anime to use the three-episode rule, that is, watch three episodes and then judge if it continues or not, but I don't advise giving up because the plot gets better as time goes on. . I haven't finished it yet, but I don't intend to give up.
I'll/CKBC - A basketball drama anime
Akane Tachibana and Hitonari Hiiragi are two high school basketball stars and great rivals on the court. In the past, the only thing that blocked each other's success was the other. But when Hiiragi transfers to Kouzu High School, they become teammates.
Will the two court masters be able to resolve their differences in time for the big game against Kokutai, or will Hiiragi switch teams to challenge his opponent face to face?
Comments on I'll/CKBC
The greater the rivalry, the greater the harmony. I always say that you can only really hate or love someone, only when you know them deeply. Otherwise you are just a hypocrite judging people for superficial opinions and no knowledge base about the other person.
But it doesn't matter at the moment. Unfortunately it's an anime divided into 2 OVAS, but it does the trick because the story is very compact and direct. In addition, there is the issue of its drama being well developed. It's worth watching, and I don't know why it's so unpopular, I've seen bad anime being more popular than this one which is acceptable.
Ahiru no sora
A strong, weak, but highly passionate Sora Kurumatani enters Kuzuryuu High School with the hope that he will fulfill his mother's wish to dominate his first high school tournament. However, the basketball club – turned into a den for delinquents – does anything but play basketball!
His club members, Momoharu Hanazono, a skilled blocker who can make power leaps but is horrible at shooting, and his twin brother Chiaki, a talented point guard, have also lost interest in the sport.
With just one game supercharged with adrenaline and excitement, and Sora's pure love for the game, the young man's burning spirit for basketball reignites.
Basketball anime list
Finally, let's mention Dear Boys and Dash Kappei, which I also recommend. In addition, we will leave below a gigantic list of all Japanese anime, OVAs and animated movies about basketball. The other basketball anime that are:
