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.

I recently re-read this manga and watched the first and last arcs of the anime, with a few sprinkled episodes here and there. I'm giving it a 8.5/10, but i have to admit that at least 2 of those are nostalgia points. There are a lot of plot holes and the art is pretty dated on both the anime and the manga, but the anime is more visually pleasing in my opinion. The dialogue can be corny at times, especially in the dubbed version, but it is not a bad dub, i like a lot of the liberties it takes. I watched the episodes dubbed but with subs on too for comparison. The positives for me are the characters and their imperfect lives.

In summary, this was a great manga and i recommend it to anyone who has not yet read it or watched the anime. If you are picky about art or cant get past the outdated and sometimes corny dialogue then maybe it is not for you.

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.

The ending...

I never got past the Dark Tournament last time I was watching the anime and reading the manga... But just recently, I finished the manga. Coming back to finish the manga means a lot to me because it's what started my whole drawing/art inspiration!

The manga is extremely good though, I gave it a slightly lower rating for the poor ending; it was still satisfying but the ending kind of dragged and i was really just skipping the last few chapters. I didn't appreciate that instead of displaying the actual tournament with the strongest fighters all the way to the final chapter...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Yusuke comes back to the Human World almost two years later and gives a very brief and vague "A lost to B, and C beat B but lost to D" kind info to Kuwabara. And then the mangaka ends it with a last-minute didn't-think-it-through problem in putting the Human World in danger which lasted half of one chapter when the Demon Tournament could've been the best ending!!
So you can all tell, I'm very disappointed in the ending and absolutely wish that the Demon Tournament could have taken the rest of the manga. But I feel like that tournament was made irrelevant because it's been cut short, almost as if Yusuke meeting Raizen wasn't a big deal.

Think about it! All this time...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
We never knew Yuusuke was a demon until his demon powers sparked in his fight with Sensui. And after the fight, he wants to go back to the Demon World. He wanted to find out about his powers; he didn't feel right being in the human world. Then BLAMMO--after Raizen dies, he calls for a tournament, which most of it didn't even come through, and then leaves back to the Human World.
I'm still a little bitter but for the most part, even if it doesn't seem like it, I loved the manga. I especially love the Sensui arc. smile Recommended! Good reading!

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"
