It's kinda unfair to try and score both animations at the same time cause they are really different in many ways. I watched those episodes in the Japan Anime Festival and the difference between an original story (noruka soruka), from the story Togashi has written years ago (two shots) is huge! While Two Shots was perfectly produced and based on the manga - a 30 or so minutes animation with great visuals, historical development and good usage of the original anime’s soundtrack - the other one just feels like an improvised story made in a hurry to fill the lack of Yusuke and Kuwahara in read more

I grew up watching Yu Yu Hakusho and I'm kinda protective of what could have been of the show in its special, but I'm happy with the results, overall.

The first OVA is a prequel to the anime, showing when Hiei and Kurama first met. I think this was in the manga, showing a girl that Kurama met in junior high. Being the first thing to watch, all hyped that I was, it was a bit boring, cliché and hushed (the episode is very short), the final battle is a bit dumb too but it was good seeing the boiis again.

The second one is a read more

It is unfair to rate this special if you don't consider everything else, so I couldn't give it a low score because Yuu Yuu Hakusho is one of my all time favourites.

Both episodes are well animated and drawn, the first episode is okay to put in context Hiei's and Kurama's alliance, specially when Hiei points out in the anime's beginning how fearsome Kurama is despite his looks, the second one felt like a filler, it is okay but at least we got to see our favourite characters again.

The worst part is that we get that nostalgia feeling and we want to see more, it would read more

(I really don't want to write a long review here, I'm just writing because I felt like I need to say something about this two-part OVAs)

It would be quite fucked up for me if I said that I loved everything about it except for the story and rate it 7, and I'll.

Jokes aside, I don't want to focus on the bad sides, seriously. I didn't expected those to be masterpieces and the stories worked fairly well considering the short runtime. I mean, the best shonen of all time just came back from the dead after 20 years for two, not one, but two specials. This read more
