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 gateway between worlds lies open and past must battle present, but with Yusuke’s final death his friends rush onward. Risen once more with the blood of ages coursing through his veins, the young man sheds humanity as the war shifts realms to the land of demons. Three legendary kings seek power where only one can rule, and friends are enlisted as champions to become foes in the final struggle for control. From troubled teen to royalty, Yusuke’s final chapter unfolds.
As the fantasy-adventure Yu Yu Hakusho enters its final season, Yusuke Urameshi and his friends Kuwabara, Hiei, and Kurama battle fallen Spirit Detective Sensui. Although he was unaware of it, Yusuke had a demon ancestor 44 generations back. When Sensui kills Yusuke's human form, the demonic genes cause Yusuke to arise more powerful than ever. With Sansui defeated and the tunnel linking the Demon and Human Realms sealed, everything seems to be happily resolved. But Yusuke quickly grows bored when there's no one to fight. Three spirits appear to escort him to the Demon Realm: his ancestor Lord Reizen is dying. Reizen's death will throw the Realm into chaos unless Yusuke acts to prevent it. Hiei and Kurama are summoned by Makuro and Yomi, the other two demon-lords. Bidding his friends farewell and promising to return in three years, Yusuke begins a new adventure. Sizing up the situation, he suggests the ruler of the Demon Realm be chosen in a martial arts tournament every few years--"like a presidential election, only with fists." Much of this combat/election feels like replay of Dark Tournament, but with the attacks ramped up even further. Viewers can't help missing the irrepressible Kuwabara, who stays in the Living World and enters a top high school. During the Tournament, Yusuke realizes the importance of fighting for the greater good, rather than for the sheer joy of fighting. But he never does learn to engage his brain before his fists, and he remains as impulsive, stubborn, hot-tempered, and appealing in Episode #112 as he was in #1.

The Final Chapter Of Yu Yu Hakusho Is The Great Chapter Of All Time.
I rarely read and watch the same manga, so I do not now how true the story stayed to the original material through the seasons. This season definitely delivers on all the elements that I enjoyed previously. It closes well without betraying its original feel or the characters up to this point. The humor becomes much more varied and the fights progress with the characters. It has far less schoolyard antics and greater depth despite the lack of some greater mission to save some biosphere. The fights seem closer to the end of Samurai Champloo than Gohan vs Cell.
Edit: I got the replacement recently, I like the series but consider buying from another place if you expect all the blue ray dvds to be in the case the first shipment. I had to wait a week for the replacement and I almost didn't realize it was empty until I opened it a few weeks after. So really open the case and make sure you haven't been japed immediately after getting it, even if its wrapped in plastic (mine was and it was empty).
Plot and Characters: (minor spoilers) During the final battle with Sensui Yusuke gets possessed by a demon in mid battle. After the battle is ended Koenma jr finds out that a long time ago relative of Yusuke's is a demon, unearthing more it is found that Yusuke's ancestory is one of the three demons kings who is having a three way power stuggle to rule all of demon world. With knowing that Koenma is forced to fire Yusuke as spirit detective. Now with no job Yusuke goes to meet his ancester and find out why he possessed him at the time. Mean while the other two demon kings summon Hiei and Kurama to aid them at their side. In this story arc the three kings are Rizen, Yusuke's ancestor and is considered to be the strongest of the 3 demon kings but has taken a hunger strike so he is weaken to their level. Then there is Yomi the blind demon who was once a servant to Kurama in the past but since Kurama suffered an injury he took over as the strongest of the two since then. Last there is Mukuro who is the king who hides behind the mask of bandages. Mukuro enlist Hiei in their army because Murkuo knows how ruthless Hiei is. Now the biggest power struggle of the most powerful demons to ever exist come into play. Who will wil?
Pros: The action is pretty good still. Story line is great. This dvd set is 100% UNCUT and UNCENSORED so you get all the action, blood, swearing and violence there should be.
Cons: Other than the dvd holding case being a bit flimsy I don't have many problems with the physical part.
Story episode cons: Once again its the episodes and how it was packed by funimation is what I got a problem with. The 1st disc part of the second discs is still showing the end of the Chapter Black story arc so season 4 really starts on Season 4, Disc 2 episode 3. So techanlly in story line form the 3 Kings Story arc is only 18 episodes, Chapter Black story arc is 27 episodes long, The Dark Tournament story arc is 40 episodes long, and the Spirit Detective story is 25 episodes long. So the 3 Kings arc gets the short end of the episode stick, If you get past this then its all good, I just thought I would give you a heads up.
Over All: I liked how it ended, It was good ending to a final season. I kinda wish it didn't end. I hope you enjoy it if you watch this series, so BUY IT!
