Yusuke Urameshi is not exactly what you'd call an angel. In fact, some might call him down right devilish. But when he dies in an accident trying to save a child, he finds himself in the Spirit World. Unfortunately for Yusuke, his name is not listed in the Book of Enma, which means it was one big mistake! So he should return from the Spirit World, but must pass a few tests first, and become a detective of the spiritual world.

So now Yusuke works in the Spirit World as a half-dead, half-alive agent for Koenma, son of the ruler of the Spirit World. This position does have its disadvantages, especially when you're trying to enjoy your summer vacation and Koenma gets kidnapped! So now Yusuke must interrupt his summer fun to find Koenma and trade the Golden Seal of King Enma for his life. But if someone other then King Enma has the Golden Seal there will be chaos in the Spirit World! What's a half-dead spirit detective to do?

With the aide of his closest allies, Yusuke sets off for Magma Valley, to save the life of the one who saved his, and find out who's at the bottom of this evil conspiracy.

Anime features and extended OVAs tend to get a bad reputation, and I'm not exactly sure why that tends to be the case. I think in part it has to do with the issues of canonicity, and the fandoms obsession with canon, as well as the nature of the promotion. If this was labeled "Bonus Episode" rather than movie, i'm sure you would see a score point boost alone. There is really nothing here that significantly differs from the actually series itself, and for what is essentially 20 minutes worth of content, it really didn't feel very different from the main series?

It could be ...

Assuming that you already know the yu yu hakusho plot in advance and is reasonably farmiliar with the movie ill get straight to the point.Koenma,yuske's boss has been kidnapped while getting some fun and relaxation at the beach.The culprits threaten to kill him if they do not recieve the golden seal,an instrument of untold power which will enable them to rule the entire world.Botan informs yusuke of this and he and the gang{i'll assume you know who the gang is}embarks to save him.Sorry if i make this movie sound more entertaining than it was,in truth it is basically a yu yu hakusho earlier ...
