Yu Yu Hakusho is just a classic and riveting shounen from the glory days with an awesome English dub to boot (one of the few where the dub is better than the sub imo). There are so many great characters, laughs, tears and memorable moments all wrapped into this one unforgettable journey spanning 112 episodes. The best arcs are the Dark Tournament (season 2) and Chapter Black (season 3) sagas and I could watch them over and over again. Do yourself a favor. Don't think. Just watch.

Ótimo anime, pelo menos foi concluído, diferente de Hunter x Hunter que fica num hiato eterno.

One of the best classic anime out there. Similar to DBZ

The very first ~6-7 episodes are way more different than the rest, as these start with well, you will see pretty early anyways and as a mystery world adventure. It will quickly turn into a superhero Shonen though, including Dragonball vibes. There is even a Vegeta in this anime (Hien). This is from the same Mangaka as the later Hunter x Hunter. You can see many templates and ideas in here already, such as Botan's catface that will be later related to Killua, the concepts of auras in different forms, albeit way less streamlined and explained. A basically (short-lived) Hisoka, and maybe one could compare Kuwabara with Leorio or Kurama as Kurapika. I think this anime is cheap at times, pulling out random new super powers. The start of the series felt like it wasn't sure where to head yet thematically What did I like the most? [spoiler]- Skill territories, especially with these three playing games against the groups - Demon world - The pretty chaotic group, of which it is not clear all the time for how long the bond will hold or how strong it will be in the end, with individuals having their own special motivations - especially Hien.[/spoiler] What did I dislike? [spoiler]- The start. It felt pretty boring, and was absolutely off-theme from the rest of the series. I mean, it also let's one wonder: Why should anyone care to die if they can come to live theoretically again anyways? Why even bother? - The mega tournament arc. Just took 60 episodes and was way too long. There have been quite some twists in there at least. - The birb. I think it was nice it was eventually re-used after the start, but I think it fell short in it's usage after all.[/spoiler] Final Arc: [spoiler]I was really surprised by the developments during it. The tournament ended way differently than expected, and Yoki made - similar to the Ant King of HxH - mayor character development. I think all three Kings had their time to shine, even if not immediality. Going to be honest, I expected actually Hiei to fight vs Yusuke, and then I thought it would be Yoki vs him in the finals - or Mokuro.[/spoiler] I also still need to watch a few OVAs. Be like: Dragonball, Hunter x Hunter Rating: 8/10

This anime recently showed up on Netflix. I knew it's a Shonen classic, but haven't given it a try until now. At the beginning of the last season I thought they where gonna ruin the story, but I was wrong and they did a great job!

avatar

One of my favorite anime ever, it reminds how good those 90s long form anime really were. Great series and an especially touching ending. Forever Fornever!

Un manga énorme par le créateur de Hunter x Hunter ! Mon meilleur de tous

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.
