The first Slam Dunk” is a film that makes me want to go to the cinema more and more. Although the CGI did not completely convince me at first, the incredible reviews of the film in Asia as well as its success in different countries of this region did that catapult, quietly, be what i want to see the most in 2023. However, more than 4 months have passed since its debut in Japan and we still have no news in Spain, which leads me to wonder the following: when will it come out here?

The situation of the possible premiere of The First Slam Dunk in Spain

  • To start talking about the situation of the first Slam Dunk, I will go over How did the premieres of 3 major feature films in the anime industry go? over the past year and a half:
    • Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Premiere on December 24, 2021 in Japan. He arrived in Spain on May 27, 2022.
    • Dragon Ball Super: Super heroes: It debuted on June 11 in Japan after a delay that moved it from April 2022. In Spain, it debuted on September 2, 2022.
    • One Piece Movie Red: The official premiere was in Japan on August 6, 2022. It arrived in Spain on November 3, 2022.
  • As can be seen, in the cases of these 3 large IP addresses, we see that the difference between the first in Japan and the first in Spain was 3 to 5 months. However, it has been 4.5 months since The First Slam Dunk debuted in Japan and we still have no news. of any kind for our country.
The Shohoku is back after many years in The First Slam Dunk
  • The most recent thing to hold on to is that 3 days ago from Crunchyroll they announced that Toei Europe will be bringing The First Slam Dunk movie to the territories of United Kingdom, Ireland and Malta. Although without a specific date, they also announced that the the premiere was scheduled for this summer.
  • Logically, this This should imply that sooner or later The First Slam Dunk would also be announced for Spain with the aim of seeing the light in the summer of 2023.. If this is really true, given the current panorama, I honestly expect the premiere for the months of August-September. In the end, personally, I don’t even envision a scenario in which The First Slam Dunk will not premiere in Spain, since the classic anime has been a historic success in our territory.

Currently “The First Slam Dunk” is 11th highest-grossing anime film in Japanese release history, and not just for nostalgia (which obviously helped). From what I know, this feature film follows the events of the anime and focuses a lot on the figure of Miyagi, this electric base that had all the flow of an NBA. Unfortunately, unless the surprise comes, it seems that we will have to wait a few more months in Spain.
