It is also ranked as the third top manga of all-time behind “Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba” and “One Piece” according to a survey.

The “Slam Dunk” series marked its 30th anniversary in 2020 with some speculating that there were plans to release it last year. Given that most had to adjust to the conditions set forth by the pandemic, those plans may have now been carried out. As of this writing, there is no timeline or an official release date for the manga.
