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.

dont bitch about the art work, hes doing the best he can. Hes terminally ill and still continues Hunter x Hunter, and if you really think he doesnt care then consider yourself extremly sick and about to die, but continueing to devote yourself to your job,

and i love the art work and the story, best mangaka ever

i enjoyed reading this series, ive been a fan since i was younger and saw the show on television and when i saw it had been scanlated i read it from begining to end.

It's a little boring at first with that whole detective arc but it quickly picks up the pace and becomes an all out fighting manga.

My only real complaint is the way the mangaka chose to end the series, it just sort of ends and then has five filler chapters. (possible spoilers) At least in the anime you got to see the epic fight with the main protagonist, in the manga you just get a summation of how the second half of the tournament ends and a quick glimpse of the fight.

Im sorry if I'm a little critical but when I decided to read this manga I was looking for a more conclusive ending than the anime had given me and instead was given an ending that lacked a real conclusion.

I'd say this is one of the rare few times I'd say the anime was a little better than the manga.

Not as good as HxH, but still a-o-k

I disagree with kazesages, whom made this manga sound so horrible.

This manga is not as bad as kazesages made it sound. Ok, true, the art skill decreased later in the volumes (just like for HxH), but kazesages made it sound like we (the fans) just need to read and get satisfied with the stories, and not consider the mangaka/creator of the story. If kazesages actually purchased the manga and said all that, then it would be understandably, but i highly doubt that.

All in all, not as good as HxH. Read this before reading HxH since it would be hard to read HxH and then this (considering you would compare the 2).

HxH = 10+ Masterpiece
YYH = 7 Still good to watch

This manga suffer from HORRIBLY INCONSISTENT ART JUST LIKE HXH. I dont know if the mangaka is on crack or something but it have to stop man. The beginning volumes were great but the later one are shits. This is one manga you dont want to get yourself into because if you do, you're setting yourseft for a huge disappointment

Strongly agreed with Deva. If you've read HxH before this, stick with it, HxH is the best shounen ever, and this really pales in comparasion. Though it is still enjoyable on its own, I found it hard to read it while there are masterpieces like HxH about.

In fact I am about to reread this because I really wasnt fair the first time around..

I remembered very long time ago, 12-13 years, I enjoyed playing YYH game everyday on SNES. And the manga is damn good.
Kurama in the youkai form looks so cool. Read it, or u will regret for the whole life.

Almost as Great as DBZ

I love YYH, it is my 5th favorite series of all time. What I love so much about it is it's similarity to DBZ, both in terms of action and sometimes plot. Very beautiful women, especially the Dark Tournament announcer (meow!) and Botan. This series definitely deserves a 10/10, easily.

This series really ended abruptly, but I think it's because Togashi-sensei was losing interest in YYH and wanted to move on with other things. Anyway, YYH was the anime that got me HOOKED on anime. It remains one of my favorite anime of all time. If you're looking for the classic-style of shonen manga/anime then this is a definite must-read. Remember, this is one of the titles that kept Shonen Jump alive and famous (aside from the ever popular Dragon Ball).

I made the mistake reading Hunter X Hunter before this series. Don't do this, compared to HXH this manga is just not good enough. But is enjoyable on some level.
