We do not know much about the details of The first Slam Dunk but the story is rumored to take place in the year 2003. The previous four movies have been about the events that have been happening inside the story. They were related to the events of the story and the aftermath of some matches. Given the popularity of the series, it makes sense that it makes a comeback, but even then not many may know what the story is about. If Slam Dunk was the most influential anime of the past, at present that dominance is held by Haikyuu. Though the two won’t be clashing head-on as only Haikyuu needs right now is the fifth season. But the issue might be in not many people may not about the characters or staked of their match. But the original is writing and directing, so he must have something in mind.
