So Slam Dunk is the highest among not only sport mangas but also mangas that are retired (and over 20 years at that)... it really is a fantastic manga and nedd a sequel =]

Is that a manga about basketball players because it sounds like it although I don't think too many Asians can dunk.  Heck I'm 6'3 and can't even dunk. I'm white though and I'll use that excuse till I die.

White man can't jump is a great movie (or whatever is the name in USA).

Slam Dunk is the most sold sport manga in Japan, it is about basketball and without any super power.

It is almost real, the only think that is forced is the level of hability a japanese high schooler would have. They play close to the level of an average NBA team.

I'm white and 5'10" or so, and during my teenager time I touched the ring but couldn't put my wrist above to dunk. One inch or two and I would be able to dunk with easy. I had good impulsion.

Well you are from Brazil so you probably have more mixed blood than me.  I'm sure you have some Spanish or I mean Portuguese in you.  I believe they eat Mexican jumping beans to jump higher.

I think you have more genetic diversity that allows you to jump higher.   You ever see Will Ferrell movie Semi Pro.  I swear to God it is most funny basketball movie ever. Beats out white men can't jump.

It's so refreshing see Fullmetal Alchemist that high. Still the best shonen released to date please don't @ me

Hunter x Hunter ranking is also damn impressive and of course One piece is the bitch, biggest manga series in Japan by far

Actually love the whole top 10 minus Reborn and Bleach, and had a love and hate relationship with Naruto and still buying every damn volume...

interesting. My question is: why not :) ? I personally want to have everything I like in an original disc-collection :D Mangas and Games too :)

i have some Anime-Blu Rays with 1080p Quality and its looks impressive. For example:

The Boy and The Beast, Your Name, Naruto Road to Ninja, One Piece, Afro Samurai ect. Really beautiful :)
