Amazon.com

Yu Yu Hakusho: The Movie (1993) was produced after the first season of the popular fantasy-adventure, when 14-year-old Yusuke Urameshi was still acting as a "spirit detective," tracking down evil spirits prowling the human world, rather than the Dark Tournament brawler he became later. Just as he and Kuwabara are about to set a record for punching out rival gang members, Botan carries them off for an emergency assignment. A giant demon has kidnapped Koenma and is demanding King Yama's golden seal as a ransom. The seal is required to authenticate all divine judgments: if the demon gets it, he can throw the human and spirit worlds into chaos. Aided by Kuwabara, Heie, and Kurama, Yusuke pounds the mochi out of an array of evil demons in a series of Dragon Ball Z-style battles. At just 30 minutes, the "Movie" feels like a lost episode from the broadcast series. The Eizuo Hakusho (1994-1995) music videos combine bits of new animation with repurposed footage from the series; Mu Mu Hakusho is a series of miniature nightmares in which Yusuke dreams he's married to Botan. Fans of Yu Yu Hakusho will be delighted to get this material, which has never been released in America. However, even the most die-hard fan will recognize that the material is pretty slight--and could easily have fit on one disc. (Rated TV PG: violence, minor profanity) --Charles Solomon

Eizou Hakusho and Yu Yu Hakusho The movie, have been elusive to fans of the series and the Funimation English dub for years now.

I found the "movie" to be enjoyable but like this entire release I find it to be for true fans only and fans of the series.

REVISED REVIEW

So, this product hasn't been listed very long. Except for "Golden Seal" (which was previously dubbed by another company), I have not viewed this product in English. All I can do for now is tell you what I know about the Japanese equivalent of this product. I will update this review when I get more information.

THE MOVIE: GOLDEN SEAL

WARNING: You may have seen a Yu Yu Hakusho / Ninku double feature listed on Amazon. DON'T BUY THAT VERSION. That is the old version, dubbed by another company with different voice actors and less creative script writers. As a result, it is almost universally considered awful.

--This is called a movie, but it's actually the same length as an episode from the TV series. It even has the same opening and ending theme sequences (in this case it's the second season's ending theme, "Sayonara Bye-Bye").

--The plot is self-contained, so you won't have to watch another episode for the big conclusion. The plot is pretty simple. Koenma, Prince of the Spirit World, is kidnapped by a demon and a demigod with plans for (what else?) world domination. A team is sent to rescue Koenma, led by Spirit Detective Yusuke Urameshi, a teenage zombie armed with a bad attitude and a fully-charged Spirit Gun. Yusuke and friends are faced with traps, demon gangs, ensnaring forests, a valley of magma, and the kidnappers themselves--all in the space of less than half an hour. The plot is very fast-paced and there isn't a whole lot of time set aside for character development, but some good script writing and acting can tell you everything you need to know about the characters without all the dramatic backstory included.

What you get in this set is basically the "movie" which is roughly 20 minutes, and some short clips (OVAs) and an short 10 minute episode or so with all the characters together again while the opening and ending themes play every 2-3 minutes, going through all of the endings and the two different versions of the opening theme, that is all on the first disc and is in English dub.

The movie is a little over 20 minutes like I said so its basically like an episode. I found the "movie" to be enjoyable but like this entire release I find it to be for true fans only and fans of the series. If someone were to randomly buy this set without viewing all/most of Yu Yu Hakusho the series I doubt they'd really enjoy it especially not knowing about the characters and all that. I loved that Funimation gathered the entire voice acting crew back together for this late final release, after I got done watching all of these clips it made me want to rewatch YYH completely all day but it also made me wish that there was more to the series.

The second disc is in its original Japanese language but does feature English subtitles by Funimation. So it kind of sucked that it wasn't all in English but its still a great thing to add to this release.

Overall I give this a 5/5 because I've been a fan of the series since childhood, almost 10 years now I've been watching Yu Yu Hakusho and this was a fantastic release on Funimation's part, I really couldn't ask for much more besides the second disc being in English too but Funi couldn't get the copyright rights to the music they said, so what can you do. Once again I say this is a hardcore fan release buy only.

This is okay. Everything that's already on it can stay, but it needs to be re-released to include the YYH Movie 2: Poltergeist Report using the original English Dub actors as well as the English character dubbing for the songs/videos on Disk 2. If these were included, this would be gold.

With Yu Yu Hakusho having been released in its entirety in both DVD and Blu Ray formats, the only thing left for Funimation to do was release the movie and OVA. Even their ad campaign for this release hyped it up by telling buyers to complete their collection with this release... probably because there isn't really anything else positive you could say to sell it.

This release collects what are essentially the table scraps from the ever-so delicious main course that was the series, packaging the first movie from the series as well as a number of shorts--neither of which really add anything of real value to the main series itself. The movie is short, clocking in at 25 minutes and is your basic one-shot story with the heroes taking on a cookie-cutter villain with little to no emotional connection with any of the characters. It's neither horrible nor is it Emmy-winning gold; it's just your standard action anime movie from the early '90s with a basic plot of good vs. evil with my only gripe being that a majority of the film was spent racing to the bad guy's lair while fighting hordes of minions rather than fleshing out the villains to make me really hate them for the finale of the movie.

The remainder of the room on the first disc in this release consist of a short collection of old Funimation promos (interesting, though I would have preferred they get their hands on some of the Toonami and adult swim promos from back in the day) as well as the more substantial parts of what make up Eizou Hakusho--a collection of shorts that take place throughout the continuity of the main series. The first thing I noticed when watching through these shorts was the quality of everyone's voice acting in the English dub--particularly Justin Cook and Chuck Huber as Yusuke and Hiei, respectively.

what excactly is Eizou Hakusho?
I'm not 100% sure of what Eizou is but I think it's mostly like greatest hit montages from the series with the characters singing in the background on their specific volume, and they have several extra 1-2 minute clips that are kind of nice but not really too relevant and you can find some of... Read More

No Blu-Ray huh
From what I've heard the OVA's were only on dvds on the Japanese blu ray and since the blu ray sets are supposed to be those exact masters that's supposed to be why.
