New Slam Dunk Anime Movie Announced

The iconic basketball manga Slam Dunk is getting a new feature animated film.

Creator Takehiko Inoue made the movie announcement via Twitter. As Famitsu points out, Toei Animation’s press release clarified that this is a new animated movie, and thus not a live-action one.

The manga first debuted in 1990 and spawned a popular Toei-produced anime series three years later. No word yet as to when the anime will bounce into Japanese movie theaters.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.
