These two anime are extremely similar, as one would expect since the source material for both anime come from the same mangaka. The two anime have similar themes, characters, and similar, overall atmospheres.

Two action dramas that have bits of humor spread through them with unique characters in them.
report Recommended by Yemi_Hikari
Both has similar characters, both has very similar story arcs and plot twists. It's like prototype of HxH. Yu Yu Hakusho is looks much more blunt and simple than HxH in many ways, although you have to give much credits to it, because of it's legacy.

Both shows are all about great fights, lots of heart and a grand sense of adventure with wits to match. Each series is also perfect for binging, the hundred or so odd episodes will fly by.

An epic adventure with four great characters and unique powers, that leads to amazing characters development and show how they are getting stronger. Also in the and the lead characters are meeting there father, that it was one of their main goals. The villains in the story are great and got alot of similarities.

Yu Yu Hakusho and Hunter x Hunter were both written by Yoshihiro Togashi. The shows have a similar style in the way that the arcs move and the story goes. Many of the characters in Hunter x Hunter are also somewhat parallels to the characters in Yu Yu Hakusho. For example, Killura is very similar to Hiei and Kirapika is a lot like Kurama. They are both great series and any anime fan should check out Yu Yu Hakusho.

These series are similar on: - Same Original Creator: both animes have the same essence of him. It seems silly, but isn't easy. - Characters: there is, in fact, a group of four main characters in both animes which also they have super powers. - Story: the characters for some reason begin an adventure which it holds challenges and dangers they must confront.

It also talks about a special individual who grows during the show and has powers other dont it was written by the same mangaka so you should really watch it. it was brilliantly made

Their manga both come from the same author and both feature a great cast of characters. The battles get your heart pounding. The music is great and the stories are the kind of anime comfort food that you can just sit and marathon for days. Both are series that set the benchmarks high for all anime to aspire to.

This is another great fighting anime from the same creator. It has a fun storyline, great characters, little to no filler, and great voice acting (even in the English dub).

Both works by Togashi-sensei, with obvious similarities and analogies, especially between the characters.

These two shows have the same creator, so if you liked one, you will most likely like the other. Also, these shows have very similar characters, the main four in both having almost parallel personalities. Both have well developed stories and excellent action scenes.

Both series belong to Yoshihiro Togashi and presents the same kind of humor. Besides the physical similarities among some characters (including a Kuabara’s doppelganger), good observers will have a lot of fun by looking for Yu Yu Hakusho’s Easter Eggs on Hunter x Hunter.
report Recommended by Guruneko
Both shows have a cast full of amazing and memorable heroes. Both first arcs feel kind of similar, but splits off after that. Both main characters start with little experience, and grow from learning from friends and future events. Packed with great fights and character development.

Both have tests the characters have to overcome in Yu Yu Hakusho's case it's the Dark Tournament and in Hunter x Hunter's case it's the Hunter Exam. Both are action shounen. Both are written by Yoshihiro Togashi. Both have amazing fights.

both created by the same guy similar in tone and atmosphere different in genre Yu Yu Hakusho is more of a Fighting series and Hunter X Hunter is more of a adventure series and the main characters in both series are parallels to each other both shows are great in their own way i prefer Yu Yu Hakusho a little more

Yu Yu Hakusho is like a template for Hunter x Hunter to build upon (at least character wise) Gon = Yusuke Kurapika = Kurama Leorio = Kuwabara Killua = Hiei I always like to say that Hunter x Hunter is like Yu Yu Hakusho 2.0 as it takes many elements from that series but builds upon them in multiple ways. Both are fun to watch and it's nice to see Togashi's original series.

>Both start off with a more light-hearted tone (although HxH is lighter overall) and get darker as the series progress; >Both hit hard in the chemistry between the main cast of characters and how impactful the supporting characters are (the depth of the antagonists is a huge highlight); >Yuu Yuu Hakusho is what made Hunter x Hunter possible, by showing a "prototype" of Nen - spirit/demon energy - and a cast of characters that inspired Togashi to create each and every HxH character (in short, many powers are smiliar). >Worth mentioning that Yuu Yuu is also much more fighting-based - with its legendary Dark Tournament arc -   read more

-Extremely similar group of main characters -Similar way of building power (Spiritual power + Nen/Aura) -A lot of similar arcs and plot points It almost feels like Yuu☆Yuu☆Hakusho was the prototype for Hunter x Hunter. If you liked Yuu☆Yuu☆Hakusho you will definitely love Hunter x Hunter!

Characters in Yu Yu have similar skeletons with designs and how they act to HXH as its the same author. Awesome fights and great relationships with characters.

Both of these anime masterpieces are adapted from manga by the same creator. They both center around four main characters that have unique powers, personalities, and backstories. They go on an epic adventure and get stronger along the way. They fight using both strength and wit. They're both perfect shounen that you won't want to stop watching once you get into them.

Similar characters, fell. Yu Yu Hakusho is more straight forward as an action show but dose so much correct just like Hunter x Hunter.
report Recommended by nexoscore
Same mangaka, very similar characters, in some ways even better than HxH, both are long-running series.

both anime is from yoshihiro tagashi both are great story both are great character both are great action but hxh is better than yyh
report Recommended by XCOS
both amazing battle anime with badass fights, likeable characters and no filler bullshit. also, they're both made by the same person, Yoshihiro Togashi.
report Recommended by LegendOfSonic
Both manga are by the same author. They are both battle shounen with a fun cast of characters and great friendships. While Hxh has some darker themes, yu Yu hakusho is more on the lighter side.
report Recommended by xShinigami3125
Both are made by the same authors. Yu Yu Hakusho is really good but it still has inconsistencies because Togashi was just in his first steps (I think). Hunter x Hunter was when Togashi stepped up his game. If you like Yu Yu Hakusho, then you might like Hunter x Hunter more.

The guy that did the manga for Yuu☆Yuu☆Hakusho did the manga for Hunter x Hunter and you will clearly tell it when you watch this is because both these anime are very similar in a way so you will enjoy this anime
report Recommended by Sephman1
Both Hunter x Hunter and Yu Yu Hakusho were originally created by the same guy, so both series feature many similarities. Most noticeably the four main characters in YYH are extremely similar to the four main characters in HXH.
report Recommended by Wileck
Same mangaka. The later arcs of Yuu Yuu Hakusho definitely begin to feel more like Hunter x Hunter in their presentation and story structure.
report Recommended by ranzac
Well... They both have MCs that wear green and learn develop their powers along with their character. The premise is very similar: A group of four boys fight evil with their Superpowers. You could even say the characters are the same; Gon=Yuusuke, Killua=Hiei, Kurapika=Kurama, and Leorio=Kuwabara. Not to mention they were created by the same mangaka, Yoshihiro Togashi. They are mostly the same except the power system and YYH being based off the real world, while HxH being based on a fictional one.

This is an easy one but both of these series are made by Yoshihiro Togashi and share a lot of the same elements. They both have four main characters and both of the central protagonists wear green outfits and act selfishly.
