Yu Yu Hakusho Launches His 30th Anniversary With Special Art
Yu Yu Hakusho 32 years ago, maybe 32 years ago, 32 years ago, the pages of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump, but the anime then kicks off its 30th anniversary celebration with special new art for the series ! The current hype might focus on Yoshihiro Togashi’s current Hunter x Hunter series as the manga gears up for its big comeback, but the series that helped put Togashi on the map for many was Yu Yu Hakusho. While the original manga release was popular on its own, it’s highly likely that fans will recognize the anime more as a bigger deal overall.
The animated adaptation for Yu Yu Hakusho is still considered one of the best action anime releases of all time, and that remains true to this day due to how it has aged as a whole. That’s really saying something as the anime kicked off its monumental 30th anniversary (after its first release in Japan in 1992), and is apparently gearing up for something cool with a special new logo for the occasion that features new art. of the series’ main hero, Yusuke Urameshi.

The anime made a small comeback with two new OVA episodes adapting material from the manga (which never made it to the first anime release) to celebrate the anime’s 25th anniversary, so fans are hoping for a return or a greater revival since. There may not be any in the works just yet, but Netflix is currently producing a new live-action version of the series in collaboration with Shueisha, ROBOT, and Toho. However, few details have been revealed for this series at this time.
If you wanted to check Yu Yu Hakusho again or for the first time, you can find Yu Yu Hakusho streaming on Crunchyroll. They hype the series as such, “From cutting class to brawling in the streets, Yusuke Urameshi is not your typical role model. In fact, this kid is nothing more than a fourteen-year-old delinquent with a knack for trouble. But in a single selfless act, Yusuke dies saving another. For such a noble sacrifice, he gets a second chance at life, but it will be a far different life than he left behind. Now a spirit detective, the young man must track down demons and fellow humans who desire to rule the three realms of reality.”
