Product Description

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.

The Dark Tournament has come down to a final grudge match and Yusuke’s full wrath is unleashed as a friend’s blood stains the arena floor. But there will be no time for rest or recovery as kidnapping follows victory and further intrigue threatens the boundary between worlds. A tunnel is being carved, one which completed will lay waste to the World of the Living. There are seven who seek an age of destruction and chaos, and hero must battle fallen hero.

Amazon.com

The third season of the popular fantasy-adventure Yu Yu Hakusho begins with the conclusion of the "Dark Tournament" storyline, as Yusuke dukes it out with the mighty demon Toguro the Younger. Toguro morphs into an over-muscled monster who makes the Incredible Hulk look scrawny; Yusuke unleashes his incredible spiritual power. Their duel takes almost five episodes to reach its conclusion. The "Dark Tournament" saga felt a lot like a Dragon Ball Z adventure, with characters screaming challenges, ramping up their powers, and punching each other through stone walls. And like Dragon Ball Z, the tone was light enough that no one really minded if characters who were killed in action didn't stay dead. But as the new "Black Chapters Saga" story arc gets underway, the tone of Yu Yu Hakusho grows darker and more violent: humans are being tormented and slaughtered, not just bizarre-looking demons. Koenma summons Yusuke to resume his duties as Spirit Detective. Humans in one part of Tokyo have begun manifesting strange and dangerous spiritual powers, including creating weird alternate dimensions or "Territories." Working with the deformed Toguro the Elder and six recruits, Sensui, Yusuke's predecessor as Spirit Detective, is building a tunnel between the Human Realm and the Demon Realm. Repulsed by the cruelty he witnessed on the Black Chapters, a Spirit Realm tape of humanity's evil deeds, Sensui has decided to destroy mankind by unleashing monstrously powerful demons. Naturally, only Yusuke and the members of Team Urameshi can prevent this disaster. (Rated TV PG, suitable for ages 12 and older: violence, violence against women, grotesque imagery, profanity, alcohol and tobacco use.)

I hadn't watched Yu Yu Hakusho in several years until I came across Funimation's release of the seasons on blu ray. I remember the series as a fun ride, though I didn't recall many specifics of the plot. I ended up purchasing the first 3 sets on blu ray. There was a pleasant sense of familiarity as I watched the sets. I can say with definite certainty that I will also purchase the last set as well.

As for this specific set, I believe it is my favorite of the 3 thus far. The action is intense from the very beginning as the set starts off in the beginning of the final round of the Dark Tournament. The fights are very exciting/over the top and take up the whole first disc of the set. The only negative I have is that I feel the final fight with Toguro draggs out a bit too long, but it is still epic an battle nonetheless. The disc wraps up with a fitting end to the arc. As for the rest of the episodes, they center around the Black Saga arc. Going into these episodes I didn't really know what to expect, for I had stopped watching the series before the final fight with Toguro for one reason or another. I found myself pleasantly surprised to see that this new arc was as good, if not better, than the last. There are less fights in this arc, yet the tone gets geared to an even darker shade as things begin to take the worst possible turn. Some new characters are introduced and they're all rather interesting; especially the new main antagonist. That's all I'm going to speak of the plot in this set, but needless to say, it was a joy to be immersed in.

I find myself excited to see what happens in the final set. As for the blu ray upscale, I find the animations to appear very nice. For the time it was released, and to see it look this sharp, I'm very pleased.

Forget your Narutos, Bleaches, and other endless anime's who don't know how to tell a story and call it a night. Yu Yu does it right and it does it in under 500 episodes.

Story teenage kid get powers

More story teenage kid does good and kicks back the forces of evil to protect family and friends.

Yeah it does what nearly every shogan tv show has since creation but it's highly animated good character models, and it holds up after neary 15 years of age.

I already own a ten-year-old set of the Dark Tournament DVDs, and I'm looking to finally complete my collection, so I bought this to compare the two and see if the Blu-Ray version was worth the cost. It is! I'm really picky about video quality, and I was expecting a low-effort upscale job, but it turned out to be better than I could have hoped for such an old series. The colors and lines are vibrant and clear, and the artifacts that bothered me so much on the old DVDs have been smoothed away. They even relaid the text on the titles so it would be legible at 1080p. YYH was my first "real" anime, and it warms my withered, jaded heart to see it get such a loving remaster.

I remember when Suncoast tried to charge $25 for a four-episode disc. Now we can get the whole series in much better quality for $100. Definitely worth it.

I liked Season 1 and Season 2, and despite complaints of video quality of other reviewers in the past on all of the series, I can't say the same. It's an old show and they did a marvelous job giving it such a new and great quality! Other than that, it's a great show and a great buy.

Yu Yu Hakusho, what can I say. We grew up together. When the show first started airing, I myself was 14 and this show has just stuck with me through all these years. My cat is named Keiko, I watch all the episodes ever 2 or 3 years and now I get to own these beauties on Blu Ray. Only a few episodes into these transfers but I'm very very very impressed thus far. In its original 4:3 and the colors and visuals are just great. The audio upgrade is a big reason for this purchase and am very happy with the sound quality thus far. Will update as needed if things change.

Blu-ray so high def right? Cartoons don't have a noticeable difference to me on blu-ray, but whatever, i guess it probably is considerably improved since this series is pretty old. This is arguably not the best season, but probably at least the second best. This is my favorite anime of all time, and a must buy.
