Yusuke Urameshi, who died saving a little boy, is sent back to Earth and becomes a detective of the spirit world to fight all the demons found on Earth.

I tend to love live-action adaptations of manga/anime. Tokyo Ghoul, Bleach, Full-Metal Alchemist and now YuYu Hakusho! I had never head of this one before. The five episode series (yay for not drawing things out!) is based on the 1990–94 manga... I figured that out when I saw the outfits and hairstyles the characters had, lol, hammer-time pants everywhere!



The first episode was a little cheesy and I had my doubts but once the demons showed up and the fighting started...BOOM, I was hooked. They spared no expense on the choreography and special effects. So much fun! I've always loved the demons from manga/anime. Very creative and creepy.

If you enjoy supernatural Japanese series then check this one out. 

Look at the comparison of the live-action characters to the original... 


This guy bothered me a little. He looked like there was a pacifier in his mouth, lol

4.5 "spirit gun" Sheep!

  1. "Yuyu Hakusho on Netflix is a nostalgic gem, brilliantly capturing the essence of the beloved anime. The characters are richly portrayed, the action sequences are electrifying, and the storyline is captivating from start to finish. A must-watch for both fans of the original series and newcomers alike!"
