posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Inoue launched the manga in 2000 as an irregular serialization, and the manga has been on hiatus since late 2014. Shueisha published the manga's 14th compiled volume in December 2014. Viz Media publishes the manga in English, and it describes the manga's first volume:
A motorcycle accident, bone cancer, a speeding truck crashing into a boy on a stolen bicycle--tragic life-changing events turn the worlds of three young men upside down. These three very different personalities have only one thing in common--their passion for basketball.
Viz Media published the manga's 14th volume in English in March 2016.
Viz Media has also published Inoue's 31-volume Slam Dunk basketball manga in English. The company is additionally publishing Inoue's Vagabond manga in English. Vagabond has been on hiatus since early 2015. The manga's 37th volume shipped in Japan in July 2014.
Update: The 25th issue on May 23rd revealed that the next chapter will launch in late August. Source: Weekly Young Jump issue 25
