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.

This is the first manga I've ever read and I'm so glad I did! I've been completely hooked to manga (and this series) ever since! No matter how how many times I come across a bad manga and start to lose faith, YYH just makes me happy all over again. I would have to say that this is a must read!

One of the classic must-read shonen. Only reason i gave it a 9 is because the beginning was mediocre and it ended too abruptly. Otherwise, its one of the greatest shonen ever in my books.

Oh, btw, i prefer this to HxH.

This is a classic that any action/adventure fan should read. I'd say the manga is way better than the anime in terms of artwork and story. I found the ending rather unsatisfactory, but I absolutely did not regret reading this at all. There's some cute chicks in it, but if you're hoping for some romance/sex, then try something else. The girls were mostly ornamental, and have very small roles.

Some may find his art style sloppy or sketch-like in the late volumes (around last 5 or so), but I, for one, was awed with how he still managed to convey a sense of movement with minimal lines.

HOW people can say crap like Naruto and One Piece is better than this has really mystified me for the better half of 2 years.....granted, the anime is better than the manga, but the manga is still one of the best shounen titles ever. Why it ended at only 19 volumes while frikkening Naruto is at chapter 357+ is beyond me....whatever, at least it ended great, while Naruto is getting worse by the chapter. What I hate more than good series ending early is a series that NEEDS to end but doesn't know when to quit while it's examples? Naruto, DBZ, and Pokemon are the only ones you need.

Good manga by the author of Hunter x Hunter. It starts off very innocently, an opening arc mostly focussed on episodic adventures, which are fun. Then it slightly degenerates into a rather dull demon-fighting manga with the next arc, which I really did not like at all. After comes a tournament arc, which I thought was at least a step up from the last one. It's all pretty shallow, but definitely enjoyable if you can tolerate tournaments.
But THEN, imo, is where this manga really starts to shine. More and more similarities to Togashi's next series (HxH) pop up and all of the tedious fighting makes place for more original scenarios and abilities. I haven't read or seen all of it (only 16 volumes), but alas from what I've heard other people say, the last arc will end abruptly. But at this point in time I don't think there's too many loose ends.

I recommend it to shounen fans, and definitely Togashi fans. But all in all the quality of the manga is pretty variable. Going from dull to interesting depending on what type of story you favor.

I'm not sure how I like the manga. I tend to like shoujo manga and shounen anime...not quite sure why that is...I read different things than I watch, but so far it's okay. There are lots more incidents and branch stories than in the anime. I'm wondering how far the manga goes in relation to the anime. I'll come back and add a rating once I've caught up to how far it's been scanlated so far. Then I'll save the manga as a surprise for my little brother. He'll be SO happy. I gave him the anime for Christmas.

Wonderful story with plenty of kick-ass fight scenes and touching storylines. The ending is not crappy. And no, there is no lack of pretty girls like the above reviewer said. Read this manga. Its a classic.

Started entertaining. Action, comedy & romance. Somewhere in the middle they drop the comedy & romance, so it got very boring for me. But maybe action fans may like this. (My rating is just that ... MINE & the gals r not cute enough). I heard that the author was forced to rush his ending, that was why it became crappy. Also heard that his wife is the author of Sailormoon???
