Get ready for one of the most exciting anime of all time as FUNimation, the company that introduced Dragon Ball Z to the USA, and Pierrot, creators of Fushigi Yuugi, LUM the Invader Girl, and Key the Metal Idol team up to bring you... YU YU HAKUSHO.

Yukina is a beautiful ice apparition whose tears transform into priceless jewels. But a filthy human crime lord has kidnapped Yukina, planning to extract her tears through torture and make a fortune! Yusuke, Kuwabara, and Botan must quickly mount a rescue mission. But why is Hiei not allowed to know?

With Kuwabara at his side, Yusuke dives headlong into danger! Only a battle with the immensely powerful-and bizarre-Toguro Brothers will decide Yukina's fate. What will it take to defeat the freakish duo in a fight where anything goes?

4-part Story by AstroNerdBoy April 10, 2003 - 8:28 PM PDT

I was introduced to "Yu Yu Hakusho" via Cartoon Network's showing of this series. From a story point of view, "Yu Yu Hakusho" is a juvenile series. The stories are obviously geared to young teen boys. However, American parents will be stunned at the graphic and bloody violence shown here considering how tame most American animation geared toward this same audience is.

Storywise, this is a 4-part episode where Yusuke, Kuwabara, and Botan are tasked with rescuing Hiei's sister Yukina. Hiei is kept from learning about this so he won't kill humans and thus get into serious trouble in the spirit realm.

Because the series is juvinile in nature, the story isn't that great. However, it is interesting if a bit of a stretch at times. Young teen boys will totally dig this though, even more than other fighting series in some aspects.

Bottom line: Juvenile, bloody, violent, but fun all the same.

Yu Yu Hakusho anime list
Adapted from the manga by Yoshihiro Togashi. Elements from Japanese mythology provide an interesting background for the story of punk kid who loves to fight, whose life takes a turn for the weird when he encounters the spirit world.
