Description
Yusuke Urameshi was a tough teen delinquent until one selfless act changed his life... by ending it. When he died saving a little kid from a speeding car, the afterlife didn't know what to do with him, so it gave him a second chance at life. Now, Yusuke is a ghost with a mission, performing good deeds at the behest of Botan, the ferrywoman of the River Styx, and Koenma, the pacifier-sucking judge of the dead.

Note: Won the 39th Shogakukan Manga Award in the Shounen category.

Yu Yu Hakusho is a fun read. Although the anime is more entertaining, the manga pars alongside it. The manga has only one downside, it ended way to soon, and you cannot help wanting more. After all, this series has amazing characters and a relatively entertaining plot. This is one of the few shounens I love to death, especially the anime, which lives up to the manga. It is a must read for those who love shounen.

I wish they would make a remake of this anime too. I don't like how the animations were back then since the animations are better now. It's been almost twenty yrs when they released ep1 and 17 yrs since the anime finished

I read Yu Yu Hakusho originally years ago, and it immediately skyrocketed to the top of my favorites list. Since then, I have read hundreds of manga, and haven't looked back at Yu Yu Hakusho for years. With me new eyes, when I found it again, I realized that it still is quite near the top of my favorites list and is definitely my top favorite fighting-style shounen story.

The characters are definitive, cool, and interesting; they develop as people and as fighters. The plot makes logical sense and flows pretty well, and is not lost between or during fights. The anime is better than the manga simply because the fights are much more interesting seen on-screen (personally, I read the entire manga and then found my favorite fights on youtube to watch properly).

On a more critical note, the ending felt slightly anticlimactic and although somebody spoiled it for me I didn't believe it until I saw it on the page. The first volume or two did not do well in introducing the series' tone and purpose; though those stories were interesting. I'm not sure how much of the first two volumes is lost in the anime, but I remember there being quite a bit of it gone... and I couldn't say if it adds to the series or takes away from it.

All in all, if you're a fan of shounen manga, I highly recommend it. If you're not, I suggest you give it a shot anyways. Definitely a classic and worth the time.

...but the ending kind of brought the whole thing down a bit. Save for the ending, the whole thing is pretty awesome, like at a 9-9.5 level... but that ending seemed pretty slipshod, like he just gave up on it and wanted to move on... which I can understand. But, still...

This is probably one of the best series I've read! I haven't seen another that holds my attention like this one did! It's not very long, but I kinda like that. I was looking for a new manga series to get into after I finished all of InuYasha's bajillion volumes, so I thought to myself, "Hey, what ever happened to that Yu Yu Hakusho show I used to watch in like 7th grade? I wonder what happened?" Sure enough, it had a manga (WOO!!) Now, I am even more of a fan than I was to begin with...
I get bored of manga that are the same thing every chapter like "Oooh! I'm gonna use this special move!" "Well oh yeah, I'm gonna use this other secret technique against you that's even better!" "Well, I'm gonna use my secret secret technique that's even better than yours!!" That bores me so much... I enjoy this manga because it's much better than that. Yeah, definitely a must-read if you ask me! It has enough seriousness with enough comedy to make it very enjoyable! Thanks, Yu Yu Hakusho!!

Why are people comparing and complaining about HxH on YYH's page?

I think this is one of the greatest series ever. The anime does fix most of the flaws of the manga, but the manga has some stuff that aren't really included in the anime (albeit useless, some of the things they say in the manga in tiny speech bubbles are absolutely hilarious).

You can go up to any serious or even semi-serious anime fan and mention YYH... they'd go bonkers. Proves that YYH isn't just a great manga and outstanding anime, it's also a great instant conversation starter with potential-friends.

And just for the record: I enjoy HxH, but YYH is more fun for me.

I read the ending from one of the YYH's forums. I didn't really get half of the things he said but I got the general idea; apparently, the manga's ending was WAAAAY better than the anime. If you wanted to know what I said, just go in there and read it. sad

Personally, I enjoyed this more than HxH. Just wanted to say that since people are saying that HxH is such a masterpiece. Reading HxH was like a chore and I felt like I was forcing myself to read it.
Well, I know that YYH isn't the greatest but i thoroughly enjoyed it.

I STRONGLY DISAGREE with kazesages.. how there you say such bad word to Togashi Yoshihiro sensei..his drawing may not be perfect but the story is great .. i pity you because you can't distinguish between rock and diamond.



( THIS IS TRUE)

in my country when u ask them about YUYU HAKUSHO they'll say "it's a Legend"

I kind of think it's funny that there are so many that like HxH more than YYH. To be honest I got bored of HxH. The action was good but Gon was a bit to much of a stereotypical shounen hero and seemed to me like a Goku knock off. Not that I didn't like it, just I liked YYH characters more. Though I will agree that the Anime is better than the Manga.
