THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I enjoyed seeing my dear characters back.

I think Yu Yu Hakusho ended very well, closed. But, watching these specials, damn it, I wouldn't be sad to see this show back. Lazy Togashi.

such a nostalgic feeling listening to the original song..

I wish he had written more YuuYuu... I sure as hell liked it a whole lot more than HunterxHunter. While I like Kurapika and Killua.... Most of the other characters in that are duds for me.
But I liked MOST of the characters (most good and some "bad" guy characters) in YuuYuu.
My mom was never too thrilled with me, her (at the time) 14 or 15 year old daughter sitting down to watch YuuYuu.... But she didn't stop me.
I really miss it. I LOVED IT! Re-watching it is fine.... But it would have been fun to live in that world a little longer and see new stories.

The visuals were spot on, it looked crisp as hell. Not at all like the first episode. Would love a whole remake looking like this

YUSUKE!!!!
lol The band is back together.
lol at Yusuke's mom knocking them out.
lol at Kuwabara using the sword now after what Hiei said.
HD Botan!
Oh shit! Oh shit! Oh shit! He's going to do it!
Reigan!
He killed himself.
HD Keiko.
Smoove Yusuke.
Dat ending! HnB!
OMG! My waifu Koto!
Dat SNES!
ARIGATOU GOZAIIIIIIIIIII-MASU!

And that was the end. Felt weird seeing YYH in HD. Would have preferred a remake, but they decided to release BD boxes instead. Maybe for the 30th anniversary. *laughs*

It's been 4 years since I first finished the anime series. I remember reading the chapter this episode adapted in the manga years ago. Nice to actually see it animated. This is probably the last time we'll ever see of YYH, unless a remake happens. It was great hearing the old OST being used, including the OP.

Yuusuke's voice felt strange to me, but otherwise i really liked to see the characters and their abilities in newer version.

It was ok

I wish if they make a remake for old TV series with these new visual/art. It look way better than original show

I didn't even know I needed more Yuu☆Yuu☆Hakusho in my life, but I loved to watch Kurama and Hiei's first meeting. The other story was good too, and I loved Yusuke's reasoning for choosing the button he chose. I also teared up a bit when "Hohoemi no Bakudan" started playing in the ending credits. Now I feel like rewatching the series.

this is clearly a market test to see if there's enough interest in the series for a reboot or a sequel , i strongly suggest you support this special if you want to see yu yu hakusho on tv again

Yusuke's mom is still MILF with that voice xD

I believe all characters have same seiyuu except for Yuusuke and Keiko
Why? :(

This is basically a fanservice, nothing really special
But if it's possible I want to see Toguro the little bro for one more time

It's nice, but stop milking it.. It already bring enough hardship for the author, poor Togashi.. now I understand why you stopped Yu Yu Hakusho
Time to move on to HxH xD

Short haired Kurama and Hiei's first meeting and fight against that demon was great. It doesn't make a lot of sense why the demon wouldn't have eaten the girl but it was probably just to give a happy ending to the story. This was really awesome.

The other story however looked ugly and was total fanservice imo. Felt rushed and pointless. The scenario of breaking in was cool and I wished it was in the original but sadly that wasn't enough to carry it.

5/10 for a good and bad episode. Would have given it a 6 if it were only the prequel episode but since these are simple OVA's that come with a blueray rerelease or something being overly harsh is uncalled for.

They went overboard with all their special attacks on those terorists, but it was fun!

This was... not really interesting. I didn't even remember this anecdotal chapter. At least, it was slightly funny.

3/5

Overall score: 6/10 The first OAV was a rather nice addition.


@pharem94 Really? Looks more like a video bonus produced as an incentive to get this BrD collection when a 90s TV show still looks perfectly fine on DVDs.

The episode itself was nowhere near as good as the first one but damn, when the OP started playing, I got so excited, I was totally singing along. XD

8/10, for first episode and OP.
6/10 for second.
7/10 overall, I would totally love to see a modern day reboot of YYH.

This one was my favorite as I got to see almost everyone again. The modern animation was great on the characters, I'm really impressed. Hie's dragon flames and Yusuke's spirit gun were greatly animated.

Those terrorists aren't afraid of death though. Yusuke pressing the blue because it was Yukimura's favorite color was really sweet!

7/10.
