The Main Idea of Yu yu Hakusho:

The anime follows the story of the teen boy Yusuke Urameshi who is killed by a car while trying to save the life of a child.

After which the son of the ruler of the afterlife asks him various questions and appoints him as an “Underworld Detective” In his new job, he comes across various cases involving demons and apparitions in the human world. This phase of the anime is a very martial art based on several epic battles and adventures.

This makes the anime perfect for anyone who is a fan of action-filled animes.

Gradually as the story progresses the viewer is introduced to many characters including the villains. Eventually, the viewer relates to the main character as we watch him grow and take on the full responsibility of being the detective of the underworld. Moreover, he makes many friends and enemies in the anime which we gradually discover as the story of the anime grows.


As discussed before the genre of anime is mainly based upon martial arts, action, adventure, and supernatural. The story of the anime is very fun to watch as you get to see a teenage boy deal with a lot of responsibility. The anime is also very inspirational for younger children as at the beginning of the anime the main character Yusuke was also just a young teenager who decides to do an act of kindness that changes his life.


The anime is inspired by the writer’s interest in occult and horror films. The story is also influenced by Buddhist mythology. The inspiration of the manga can be clearly seen in the anime as it represents the underworld, demons, etc.


The manga was originally written in November 1990 and was completed in July 1994. The manga took 4 years to complete. The anime series started in 1992 and ended just recently in 2018. The manga was produced by shonen jump. The anime also had two movies.


Yu Yu Hakusho gained a lot of following in just a few amount of time. The manga sold over 50 million copies in japan only. The manga also received many rewards out of which one was Shogakukan Manga Award for Shonen jump manga.


In conclusion, we say that the manga received a lot of attention which it deserved. We would also recommend the manga action-themed anime lovers. The story of the anime is also very exciting for anyone who likes fictional stories. We also recommend the viewers to watch the Yu yu Hakusho fillers episodes as they are only five and are all very well made.
