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

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.

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.

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.

This did indeed have a lot of extra stuff I had never seen before, including things in the original Japanese, but honestly the price didn't match the entertainment value. I will most likely never touch this dvd again, which is the complete opposite of my dvds for the actual show, which I binge watch at least once a year. I think this is just one of those things you but to make sure your collection is complete.

Eizou Hakusho and Yu Yu Hakusho The movie, have been elusive to fans of the series and the Funimation English dub for years now. Stuck watching both online OR buying the dvd of The Movie from a different dubbing company (I actually liked the voices for that btw), it seemed that the OVA would never reach outside of Japan and that the movie wouldn't have the most familiar cast (the Funimation crew who dubbed the series).

The wait is over! Now compiled in this 2 disc set are the movie and Eizou Hakusho (the collection of shorts animations featuring the main characters). And it was awesome to pop it into the player for the first time.

Firstly, the dub was well done with matching words, true to character dialouge and over all smooth acting. Nice to hear these things without needing subtitles. The menus were laid out, everything was in order, it was just nice to have everything so nicely organized.

A bonus is that when on the second disc which includes character specific animations with character songs, they put the translations for the music being sung AND the title so that you may find them later if you wish.

Over all, if you are a fan of this series, this would definitely be for you! However, if you are a casual viewer not familiar with at least the mangas or original series, I wouldn't recommend it because of how specific it is, how odd some of the aspects of the shorts are, it wouldn't be as enjoyable for you. So all you Hakusho fans, we've waited a long while so pick this DVD set up while you have the chance because it was AWESOME!
