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.

Yu Yu Hakusho was a good anime. I've also reviewed Hunter x Hunter, which had the same author and was great. Today, we're talking about Yu Yu Hakusho the movie. They call it that, but it's only the length of an episode so... that's a thing. But I've reviewed shorter anime that were classified as films and the length, in this situation, doesn't mater so much as the quality of the content. So, let's look at it and see how it holds up.


We open with Botan fetching Yuusuke & Kuwabara while they're engaged in a brawl. She tells them Koenma was kidnapped and read more

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 read more

I enjoy YYH as much as the next guy, but this......'movie' (really just an episode) is pretty meh. I'd usually give it the full run-down, but it's not worth it. Let's do this!

Story (6) - Koenma gets captured, Yusuke and the crew struggle to get there but overcome the odds with luck and perseverance; it's basically a lost season 1 episode. I personally prefer pre-Dark Tournament YYH/Season 1 YYH, so I enjoyed it because it's not so DBZ-esque, but I recognize that this is just glorified filler.

Art (5) - I think the art in the show is pretty solid for its time, but here read more
