Ahiru no Sora (The new Slam Dunk of the present)
Hello everyone, I have been watching this new anime called Ahiru no Sora. It is about a story of a boy who wants to pursue his dream as a basketball player, the problem is, he is short in height. The guys name is Sora Kurumatani.
Ahiru no Sora gives me the same vibes as Slam Dunk and Slam Dunk was actually shown in one of the episodes of this anime, you'll notice if you are keen enough.
Sora is an excellent 3-point shooter, considering he trained his form since he was young. He can shoot better from the right side.
He also has good handles. Theses skills compensate for his lack of height. His usual position is as a shooting guard but can still play pointguard when team needs it.
He is considered as a good defender as shown in the Kuzuryu vs Kitasumiyoshi game as he defended Taro the whole game.
