Slam dunk synopsis

Hanamichi Sakuragi, notorious for his hot temper, enormous height, and fiery red hair, enrolls in Shohoku High School in hopes of finally getting a girlfriend and ending his losing streak of fifty rejections. However, his notoriety precedes him, causing most students to avoid him. Shortly thereafter, after certain events, Hanamichi is left with two unshakable thoughts: "I hate basketball" and "I desperately need a girlfriend".

One day, not knowing anything about his temperament, a girl named Haruko Akagi approaches him and asks if he likes basketball. Hanamichi falls in love with her instantly and gives a fervent affirmation. So they both go to the gym where she asks him to slam dunk (a mate or pin) but Hanamichi overdoes it and hits the board. However, his superhuman physical abilities have opened new doors for him in his life.
