Heya people! I’m back again with an anime review! I wasn’t feeling really motivated these few days cuz it’s gotten cold again like it was sunny just a few days ago and now it’s snowing??! (;´д｀) godammit i really don’t like the cold ╥﹏╥
Okay anyways today i’m going to talk about Yu Yu Hakusho!
As you can probably tell from the style and quality of the image, Yu yu hakusho is a pretty old anime. According to wikipedia *pfttt* , Yu yu hakusho by Yoshihiro Togashi started around 1990! Σ(･口･) Oh sh** this anime is older than me!! (゜Д゜;)(゜Д゜;)
Yu Yu hakusho is a completed anime. it has 19 volumes, 175 chapters and 112 episodes in total. Not really a lot of chapters but trust me, the content is 👌👌👌.
The story takes place in retro japan. You can kinda see the era it was from by looking at the fashion and hairstyles of the characters.

Slick gelled hair and puffy pants anyone? (*´∀｀）
So let us start by introducing out main character!
Our Protagonist Yusuke Urameshi (浦飯 幽助) is your typical high school delinquent who often gets into fights as numerous delinquents are always trying to fight him.
which is kinda normal in japan i guess?? ఠ_ఠ
Urameshi might be tough but sometimes he too gets overwhelmed by big gangs of delinquents who approaches him. You can say he’s kinda fed up with his life.
But fear not! as his good delinquent friend Kazuma Kuwabara (桑原和真) is always there to help him! Together, they are said to be the best delinquent duo in japan! nah jk
Kuwabara is actually one of the delinquents that always challenges Urameshi to fights. ಠﭛಠ
Although he loses to Urameshi everytime, this lad never gives up! He just keeps challenging Urameshi everytime he sees him. ఠ ͟ಠ
Okay you know what? I’ll tell you a secret about Kuwabara as long as you don’t expose me to him. ಠﭛಠ
Kuwabara might look tough but he has a soft spot for kittens.
And guess what again? ಠﭛಠ
He kissed yusuke. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
In a dream. Haha Gotcha! ಥ◡ಥ
Okay sorry let’s continue on!
So the Story starts with our Protagonist Yusuke Urameshi , dying while trying to save a child from an oncoming car. Yes folks you read it right, the protagonist actually died at the start of the series (´∀｀）
Very interesting way to start the series in my opinion.（*´▽`*)
And in the afterlife, as the underworld wasn’t ready for his unexpected death, he was brought back to life again but as a spirit detective.ಠ_ಠ Whereas his job is that of a normal detective but instead of dealing with humans, his is to deal with demons and spirits. ┐(´ー｀)┌
And instead of using a gun, he uses his finger because now he can shoot energy beams from his fingers. Pretty cool if you ask me!
From here on is where the storyline gets interesting as Urameshi now has an exciting new job! Inspecting cases in the underworld while shooting criminals with his energy beam fingers! Pew pew pew!
While inspecting cases, Urameshi would meet lots of allies and enemies. Like This short angry cutie below（´υ｀）
This Blue-haired broom stick riding kimono girl (^○^)
This baby who is 670 years old (ﾟωﾟ;)
And this really hot redhead ✿♥‿♥✿ ✿♥‿♥✿ ✿♥‿♥✿
But as the story progresses, it kinda turns into tournament fighting instead of Detective work. But oh well, it’s still good!
The quality of this anime might not be so good, but overall it is an amazing anime! The storyline is really good and it just makes you want to keep watching and watching until you realize it’s already morning and you’ve gone through all 112 episodes in just 3 and a half day. (ﾟДﾟ;)
Oh and not to mention the character development is pretty neat as well! Through chalenges and hardships, the characters just grows and become better individuals. And as the story progresses, you will get meet all kinds of characters, not just humans but also other species!
I highly recommend this anime if you’ve never seen it before. Give it a try mate! It’s good s**t that you can waste your time on! Happy watching/reading!
