Studios Toei Animation and DandeLion Animation Studio are animating the film based on Takehiko Inoue’s Slam Dunk manga, which was serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump from October 1990 to June 1996 with a total of 31 volumes. The series surpassed 120 million circulating copies. The manga’s author is directing and writing the script for the adaptation.

Viz Media licensed the manga for English releases and all the volumes are published. The official website describes the plot of the first volume as:
Takehiko Inoue’s legendary beloved basketball manga is finally here and the tale of a lifetime is in your hands.
Hanamichi Sakuragi’s got no game with girls–none at all! It doesn’t help that he’s known for throwing down at a moment’s notice and always coming out on top. A hopeless bruiser, he’s been rejected by 50 girls in a row! All that changes when he meets the girl of his dreams, Haruko, and she’s actually not afraid of him! When she introduces him to the game of basketball, his life is changed forever…
