It can be said that sports anime is one of the genres that fans are very passionate about. While a lot of sports have been included in interesting anime stories, basketball-themed anime is probably the most popular.
Here are the 8 best anime about basketball:
1. Slam Dunk
The main character of the film is the guy with outstanding red hair Hanamichi Sakuragi. Sakuragi has an arrogant personality and always considers herself the right to be negligent. But since playing basketball, he has completely changed thanks to his love for this sport.
It is the story and the meaning of basketball that make Slam Dunk an extremely memorable and worth watching anime in the sports anime segment.
2. Kuroko no Basket
The story is about a group of legendary basketball players who were considered the magic generation of Japan at that time. They possess a lot of special abilities such as stealth on the field, mimicking other people’s skills or even hitting the cypress.
If you are bored with the same basketball anime, Basquash can be an alternative. In this anime, you will be introduced to robots playing basketball, dribbling thanks to the integration with sci-fi elements.
The film takes a panoramic view of the planet Earth Dask – a copy of the future Earth. On this planet, people play a sport called BFB – Bigfoot Basketball. This subject requires people to know how to fine-tune and control giant super machines to be able to play football in an equally large stadium.
The story revolves around Hasegawa Subaru and his harem. Hasegawa Subaru was recommended by his aunt Takamura Mihoshi, who is also an elementary school teacher, as the club’s basketball coach. I thought it was a simple matter to train elementary school girls, but who would have thought that children now grow up so fast that they also think of all sorts of funny jokes that he couldn’t figure out. But in the end, he decided to coach that women’s basketball team.
5. Dash Kappei
Dash Kappei is an old school anime that aired in the 80’s. The story follows Kappei Sakamoto, a high school boy who has an extraordinary basketball ability and quickly becomes the best player thanks to his skills. I’m not even 1m tall.
6. Buzzer Beater
If seeing the basketball robot in the Basquash anime wasn’t silly enough, the Buzzer Beater anime will shock you even more. Because only here you can watch the basketball game between humans and aliens.
7. Dear Boys
Like most basketball anime, Dear Boys tells the story of a high school basketball player Aikawa Kazuhiko, a transfer student who joins the basketball team. Unfortunately, the basketball team doesn’t have the passion and excitement to achieve various victories. This is where the story begins about how Aikaza Kazuhiko helped his school basketball team change that.
8. I’LL / CKBC
I’ll CKBC is a movie about young and talented basketball players, but the shadow of the previous generation is so big that they become pressured in every ball game.
