From cutting classes to brawling in the streets, Yusuke Urameshi is not your typical role model. In fact, this kid’s nothing more than a fourteen-year-old delinquent with a talent for trouble. But in a single selfless act Yusuke dies while saving another. For such noble sacrifice he is given a second chance at life, but it’s to be a life far different than the one left behind. Now a Spirit Detective, the young man must track down demons and humans alike who desire to rule over the three realms of reality.

As of this writing, this has yet to be released. However I got FMA: Brotherhood part 4 early from rightstuf and saw in the trailers, Yu yu hakusho. I was thinking to myself, why are they advertising an old show on this new release? I knew that they had released the box sets a year or so ago, but w/e, so I clicked it and figured it was another re-release. I was instantly shocked by the picture quality! Even if it was blu-ray, no way yyh could look this good just by being upscaled. The trailer explained that it was a frame by frame remaster.
If you don't already own yyh in some form, trust me, it looks beautiful, so go with this. Also, it is in full frame, so don't worry it won't be like those orange box releases of DBZ.
I wizened up shortly thereafter and got myself the whole series on DVD in the 8 volume 2nd release (the "First Battles", "Second Wind", "Third Strike" Boxes) and was finally content that my collecting was over. Barring potential FUNimation releases of the movies in the future, I thought I had the best there was.
I was wrong.
Studio Peirrot, the Japanese company who produced Yu Yu Hakusho back in the early 90s went back and did a gorgeous frame-by-frame remastering job, going back to the original film prints and restoring the series in such pristine condition. The art was crisp, the colors were brilliantly restored, the audio brought into TrueHD 2.0 Stereo. I thought the idea that we could possibly ever get something this nice to be a wonderful pipe dream.
I was wrong again.
FUNimation has gotten those very same masters and not only have they presented them just as flawlessly on this release, but they've gone back and remixed the dub track to a glorious TrueHD 5.1 track! They've even used alternate takes and slight shifting of the lines, causing the audio to now sound pristine and match the lipflap better than before.
I swear watching this after seeing my DVDs was like night-and-day. The colors are so vivid, so brilliant, it's without a doubt the best I've ever seen a series that was not originally produced digitally in HD look.Read more ›
I first caught a glimpse of this show many, many years ago while it was airing on TV. I watched about 2 minutes of it before my sisters made me change the channel. It was enough to get me intrigued - a dead guy attending his own funeral? But it would be years later before I finally found the series and got to watch it. It is one of the first few anime series I ever watched and it will forever hold a special place in my anime lovers heart. But even clouded with the misty eyes of nostalgia, I wouldn't have watched it 5 times unless it was really good. I've watched it 4 times in English and once in Japanese and it is easy to see that the English is what makes this series. It is good in Japanese; it is a masterpiece in English. Not only are the voice actors phenomenal, but the script adaption is probably the best I have ever seen in anime (and I've seen lots of anime). I normally prefer to watch series in Japanese (its like studying!), but this series is just so much more awesome in English!
Oh yeah, if you thought Spirit Detective = mystery story, you were a little off. Spirit Detective really equals guy who catches/beats up demons. Criminal demons of course. YuYu Hakusho is a fighting anime with lots of comedy and great characters.Read more ›
