Just read the manga, this is the second best Basketball Manga after Slam Dunk in my opinion (without superpower of course), the story starts by the Main Character Sora Kurumatani who went to highschool with no official basketball club. He gathered all the member by himself (some of them are gangster, who can't play & just start to learn, but some others are ex player which is experienced, reliable & cool )

Fyi: The main character height is only 149cm, (Sora The Wingless Duck) . but still play basketball and became heart & soul of the team.

The character is what shine here.

The Story is about how read more

When trying to make a realistic style manga, there are a lot of ways to go about it. You could focus on some really heavy issues or you can start focusing on the cute parts more than the serious ones and follow the usual slice of life format.

Ahiru no Sora might come off to some as a similar series to the likes of Haikyuu, with a very short player competing in a tall man’s sport, but that’s about where the comparisons end. Ahiru no Sora is definitely a different kind of story to Haikyuu, and I think you’ll be disappointed if you jump into this expecting them to to scratch the same itch.


The thing that draws me in most about this story is its approach to passion and commitment. It’s the rare case of a manga acknowledging that not everyone can have that extreme passion that drives characters like our main protagonist read more

I'm French.

In life, sometimes that is a disadvantage. In the case of Ahiru No Sora, which isn't fully translated in english but is in French, it's a blessing.

I think a quote from the manga that summarize and explain its thematics the most is made by the author himself and Toby :"The future doesn't exist". This applies both to the perception of the world, the story and the characters. Many times, the manga will do Flash-forwards, showing us the futur of these characters after the end of the manga's story. This shows us that, clearly, the result isn't the important part of the manga. It's the read more
