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.
Survival is the order of the day as Yusuke and his allies face off against the worst that the Demon World has to offer. Locked into a competition set up by the criminal underground, more than the fighters’ lives are on the line as the Dark Tournament unfolds round by brutal round. Pain and suffering are redefined, a demon from the past is reawakened, and the mysterious masked fighter will step forth. Their situation is worse than grim as the Tournament Finals are set to begin.

Plot and Characters: (minor spoilers) season 2 really starts at episode 26 which comes in the first season in this version but i will give an up to date idea of what happened. After Yusuke's last mission he is out with his friends Kuwabara and Keiko. Yusuke is met by a biker/deamon named Toguro who he faught in a eariler case. Thinking he wants a rematch Yusuke and Toguro go to a parking guarge, Toguro tells Yusuke that he wasn't using his full power or even half his power last time they were fighting, Toguro powers up and demolishes the parking guarge in seconds leaving Yusuke in total fear of how strong Toguro is. Toguro tells Yusuke that he must enter in this fighting tournament called The Dark Tournament, If Yusuke refuses enter Toguro tells him that he will kill Yusuke and everyone Yusuke knows and has ever cared for. Now Yusuke, Kuwabara, Hiei, and Kurama and a mysterious masked figure enter the tournament and fight for their lives.
Pros: This is the absoulte best story arc in the entire show! It has tons and tons of action, drama, story telling. Honstly this season and episodes deserves an award for how good it is. This dvd version is 100% UNCUT and UNCENSORED so you get all the kicks, punches, blood and action you need to see to enjoy the show. The voice acting is amazing! The old style of how the show looks makes it feel even better.
Cons: The only problem I had with this is the physical dvd's. I got this dvd packaged totally plastic wrapped and when I opened it some of the disc's had some light scratches on the back. After playing the dvd they turned out to be alright and all so just a warrning.
Season 1 and Season 2 and Season 3 episode mini mix up: This is just telling you that season two (aka the Dark Tournament) really starts at episode 25 which was put into the S1 box instead of the S2 box. Its just a heads up. Also this box S2 only goes up to episode 56 and the true end of of the Dark Tournament ends at episode 66 which happens in S3 disc 2 so technally the entire 1st half S3 is still the Dark tournament.
Over all: I love love love this season more than any of the other season of Yu Yu Hakusho! This simple is the best every! BUY THIS SERIES!!!!!
Quite honestly if you're even looking to purchase this box set than you need no explanation of the plot, the show or anything about this; you very well know already and it's been talked about plenty enough as is, but for the very unlikely chance someone doesn't know the plot here's a quick synopsis: Yusuke and team (Kuwabara, Kurama and Hiei) travel to a remote island to compete in the Dark Tournament against teams of competing demons and apparitions to have a rematch against the powerful demon Toguro.
I can't express enough how much I love this show and especially this season; this for me is the apex of the entire series (feel free to disagree...), brutal fighting, a slew of different characters/challengers, edge-of-your-seat action, some quirky comedy thrown in for good measure and a gut wrenching (though obvious) tragic plot point stemming from the death of a prominent character (no spoilers...not really...but you get what I mean...). Aside from that, I am reviewing the Blu-ray ver. so as far as video quality it's as vibrant and clear as you'd come to expect, obviously more so than the original analog, along with that the audio is clear as well. Though somewhat minimalistic as far as special features/extras go (just the opening and closing music with the scenes without text) I guess that's to be expected, and honestly is inconsequential.
My only real gripe is this, there's a bit of false advertising to address here, the box clearly says "The Complete Second Season". Unfortunately it's not the "complete" second season, as its a whopping 41 episodes in total, and this set only contains 28 of the episodes spread across 3 discs. It starts on the episode 29 "Flowers of Blood", 3 episodes past the initial start of the season and ends with episode 56 "Yoko's Magic" ending 10 episodes before the initial end. It's extremely annoying that I didn't get to start the season properly and watch the most climatic part of the series. And honestly I would've been happy just having this season if I'd only have one. But really it's not a big deal, it just gives me a reason to own the other seasons too, which you can't really say is a bad thing.
Overall, this series, and this season is a must have for any fan of anime. Just remember if you just get this season, you'll be missing out on 13 episodes.
