both are sportsmanga, very funny and the characters are just too creepy
Great mangas of Takehiko Inoue. Both are about basketball, with a familiar mood. Slam Dunk have more comedy and REAL have more drama. Both are awesome. If you don't like basketball or do not enjoy sports manga, read Slam Dunk first. I'm sure you'll love it and you'll want to play basketball.
