Yo Yo Hakusho It may have first hit the pages of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump 32 years ago, but the anime is starting its 30th anniversary celebration next with some new artwork special for the series! The current hype may focus on Yoshihiro Togashi’s current Hunter x Hunter series as the manga prepares for its major comeback, but the series that helped put Togashi on the map for many was Yo Yo Hakusho. While the original manga version was popular in its own right, it’s very likely that fans will recognize the anime as a bigger deal in general.
anime adaptation Yo Yo Hakusho It is still considered one of the best anime releases of all time, and that still holds true to this day given how aging it is as a whole. That’s what he’s really saying because the anime has kicked off its 30th anniversary (after its first release in Japan in 1992), and it looks like it’s gearing up for something great with a new special logo for the occasion that features some new artwork for the series.

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 have been hoping for a bigger comeback or revival ever since. There may not be one in the works yet, but Netflix is currently producing a new version of the series in conjunction with Shueisha, ROBOT, and Toho. Few details about this series have been revealed so far.
If you want to pull Yo Yo Hakusho Again or for the first time, you can find Yu Yu Hakusho streaming on Crunchyroll. They fuss with the series like this, “From class separation to street brawling, Yusuke Uramichi 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 selfless act one dies Yusuke while saving another. For such a noble sacrifice, he was given a second chance at life, but it would be a completely different life than the one you left behind. Both who wish to control the Three Realms of Reality.”
