Toei Animation’s latest teaser countdowns to the theater premiere for The First Slam Dunk, the long-awaited anime film based on Takehiko Inoue’s manga, Slam Dunk.
Featuring Hanamichi Sakuragi – the protagonist of the original Slam Dunk series – the 15-second-long video depicts the redhead sporting his signature Air Jordan 1 “Bred” as he lonesomely shoots balls in the school’s gymnasium. In a montage-like edit, the teaser then cuts to a close-up of Hanamichi getting riled up amidst a match, and closing with a countdown announcement that marks 10 days away from the film premiere.
This is the third character-focused countdown trailer for the film — the first countdown starred Hisashi Mitsui, MVP and starting shooting guard of Shohoku High School’s basketball team for the 14-day mark. While Sakuragi’s in-team rival, Kaede Rukawa, who serves as the small forward on the Shohoku team headlines the second countdown trailer on day 11.
