    1. I have been a fan of this series for a long time, and no matter how many times I watch the anime It will never stop being fascinating.Thought I have watched the anime, more times than I would like to admit. This is the first time I have gotten around to reading the manga. Why now? shouts the masses I don't know, I just got that itch. There are so many times that the anime is extremely different then the manga, I just had to know. I love this manga, though the beginning does start out a lot slowe [...]

    2. So, this is the first Manga I've ever read. I really enjoyed it. I decided to give it a try after a girl in my Library was talking about conventions, and Manga.She recommended this Manga to me and I read it so fast, because it was so interesting. It is about a guy named Yusuke who is a bad guy at school and he ends up getting ran over by a car and dying because he tried to save a little boy from getting hit.After this, he meets the Botan who guides him through the afterlife. Since it wasn't expe [...]

    3. Completed this volume for abc manga challenge 2017.I watched this anime when it had its original run on Toonami, oh so many years ago, and this was so nostalgic. Honestly I had forgotten a lot of the plot since then, and was amused by the old school art style. The characters had really good development, and the plot isn't boring. I recommend if you're getting into manga that you give this your attention for at least three volumes.Have fun reading!

    4. Creo que este tomo junto al siguiente son el arranque perfecto para una serie que -si bien muestra lo mejor de sí en sus primeros tomos- resulta una mezcla de géneros y estilos de lo más interesante.

    5. It's tough to rate this one. I enjoyed it, but while reading I couldn't help but compare it to Hunter x Hunter. Both are from the same writer and Yu Yu Hakusho is a lightweight compared to HxH.

    6. Προσωπικά έχω διαβάσει και καλύτερα manga αλλά το συγκεκριμένο, είναι ακριβώς αυτό που φαντάζεστε. Απλό, αστείο σε σημεία,μικρό και αρκετά έξυπνο. Το σχέδιο είναι γραμμικό και παίζει συνεχώς με τις σκιές των προσώπων και του περιβάλλοντα χώρου, και όταν πρέπει σου μεταφέρει τ [...]

    7. Parmi le multitudes de manga qu’on peut lire, il existe ce qu’on appel des classiques incontournable. Que ce soit Kenshin, Dragon Ball ou Akira, chacun de ces classique semblent immobilisé dans le temps et plusieurs mériteraient d’être critiqué à nouveau pour savoir si leur titre de manga culte et classique est encore bien mérité. Des séries comme Love Hina qui ont été des incontournables jadis sont maintenant oubliable et même à éviter. C’est donc danc cette optique que je [...]

    8. I won't spend my time to "click" on all the volumes.I've read this saga in the same time of watching the anime ^^ ( a long time ago and i still have them all in my bookshelf).Kurama and his little spiky demon Friend were my favourite caracthers.Basically " foe" but they end up " working and being friends with Yusuke" ^^

    9. I loved this manga growing up! (This and Dragon ball) I actually read this in Shonen Jump when it first came out in English. Loved the anime as well, great manga & all around story. Love Yusuke!

    10. Yu Yu Hakusho, translated roughly into English as Ghost Files or Poltergeist Files, is a manga-turned-anime from the early to mid-1990's. I had started to watch it and really liked it, so I thought that I'd try out the manga that the series was first based upon.The first volume of the series kinda through me for a loop, and I expected the differences. It's not so much that the actual story is hugely different, but that that anime greatly compresses the early chapters comprising the first arc int [...]

    11. E' stato un salto nel passato. Non ho effettivamente altro modo di esprimere in che stato d'animo io sia stata durante tutta la lettura di questo volume. Tanti anni fa avevo visto le puntate dell'anime che passavano in tv (mi pare fossero su MTV ma non ne sono completamente sicura, questa potrebbe essere una castroneria!) e amavo follemente tutti i personaggi. Proprio per questo è stato bellissimo trovare questa nuova edizione tutta figa e stilosa in fumetteria! E' vero, 7€ sono tanti per un [...]

    12. Today we look at a comic with some serious flaws, but I love it anyways. Firstly, the art in this manga is quite bad and I mean BAD! The anime looks so much more polished that it is almost difficult to read the manga after seeing the anime. Secondly, this starts surprisingly slow for a shonen comic. Usually the anime is the adaptation with all the painful filler, but in Hakusho it is the manga if anything that has more padding. As a ghost, Yusuke already saves Kuwabara's cat in both versions. Di [...]

    13. This fun little manga is about a kid named Yusuke Urameshi who is revealed to be dead on the first page. The first chapter reveals that he is an angry kid who will pick a fight with anyone but somehow managed to die selflessly saving a kid from being run over by a car. Since Yusuke wasn't supposed to die right there, the Grim Reaper that comes to get him informs him that there isn't a place for him in the afterlife. This leaves Yusuke with a choice: stay a ghost and wait for a spot to be prepare [...]

    14. 14 year old Yusuke Urameshi is your average, everyday delinquent. Except for the fact that he's dead. (This isn't a spoiler, it's the first thing mentioned on page 1.) Having selflessly sacrificed himself to save a small child from being hit by a car, he is visited by Botan, the grim reaper. Due to Yusuke's terrible attitude, the spirit world did not plan on him dying to save that child, and so there is no room for him in the afterlife. Rather than be cursed to roam the Earth as a spirit, he is [...]

    15. The first volume of Yu Yu Hakusho does something that most story lines avoid: it kills off its main character. Tough-guy Yusuke Urameshi sacrifices himself to save a young boy from being hit by a car, but the afterlife doesn't have a place for him yet, so spirit guide Botan offers Yusuke a chance to return to life.Though drawn in 1990, I didn't find the artwork to be particularly dated, though certain differences exist in the style. The translation was good and the plot is interesting - this fir [...]

    16. 3 1/2 starsI hadn't read the summary or watched the anime and didn't really know what YuYu Hakusho was about. However, when I saw it at the library, I figured 'why not' since it was so popular and I had somehow managed to be totally ignorant of the series. While I didn't know what YuYu Hakusho was about, I did expect fight scenes, friendship and its share of antics, standard shonen fare. YuYu Hakusho pretty much delivered on my expectations. So far the premise is fun, having the spirit Yusuke go [...]

    17. [WARNING WARNING] THERE ARE GOING TO BE SPOILERS!!! [WARNING WARNING I found that this book has a great story line and cool and funny characters. I really liked how the characters are formed through dialog, actions, actions with the environment and a multitude of other things. Yusuke, the main character, is a phenomenal character, although he isn't a good role model, due to the fact that the reader sees him smoking on school grounds Other than that he is someone who is misunderstood, but in the [...]

    18. Yu Yu Hakusho is pound for pound one of the greatest Shonen comics ever created. It delivers on everything you'd want from a boy's adventure comic. It's got great action, humour, drama and heart. But the most affecting element of Yu Yu Hakusho is it's characters. In spite of the fantasy setting, they feel like real living breathing people. Togashi is an incredible storyteller. His panels flow smoothly and effortlessly. He was incredibly innovative with the ways he would convey motion and action. [...]

    19. Silly, it gets serious from time to time. Not a terribly engrossing read, but I do read it whenever we get our Shonen Jump monthly. I wouldn't pay for the series, but I'm fine with reading the serials. Oh yeah, it's about a boy, "the toughest boy in his high school" they always mention, who dies and becomes a demon hunter (I think the name means poltergeist hunter). He, along with his friend, the 2nd toughest kid--blah blah blah, hone their 6th sense fighting skills and encounter all kinds of ad [...]

    20. YuYu Hakusho is one of my favorite manga! It's about a young, violent delinquent who, to the surprise of Heaven, selflessly saves a boy from being hit by a car. But with this, he ended up dying! Because this brave act is so unlike the troublemaking Hakusho, Heaven doesn't know whether to place him in Hell or Heaven. He is then sent back as a ghost to Earth to kill daemons to prove where he belongs in the afterworld.YuYu Hakusho is another very popular series. Though it is old, the storyline is p [...]

    21. This is the first manga in the Yu Yu Hakusho series. It follows Yusuke Urameshi, a teen who is hit by a car trying to save a little boy. Yuske ends up as a ghost who performs good deeds.The manga follows the anime pretty closely. There are a few chapters that go off from the anime, but for the most part, if you enjoyed watching Yu Yu Hakusho, you'll probably enjoy this book.I typically don't read mangas, but I bought this book for my husband several years ago and decided to see what it was like. [...]

    22. Ok so I've read Manga before mainly when I was in high school, I picked this up on a whim and it was pretty good. Yuyu Hakusho is the story of a high school student who is one of the tough kids at school who dies while pushing a toddler out of the way of a moving car. It reminds me a bit of The Lovely Bones because he's watching over his family and friends while trying to do good deeds and get resurrected. The art isn't anything amazing but the story is pretty interesting I'll probably continue [...]

    23. This review is more of a warning; the first and second volumes of this series are fascinating, excellent and worth checking out. However, after the second volume the series goes from high-quality material to your typical two-to-three-star shonen battle manga. As much as I love the first two volumes, the rest of the series is disappointing and with that I cannot rate this volume or the second volume five stars.This volume is A material on its own, but the disappointment it leads up to knocks it d [...]

    24. Gosh. I can't say much about this without completely going off my rocker in raving how wonderful and beautiful and utterly fantastic it is. Seriously, this was one of the first fandoms where I enjoyed both manga and anime. I'm usually so picky about the anime that comes from a manga, but this? Oh, this was wonderful. I read and re-read the series several times. It's hilarious and funny and tongue-in-cheek, and yes, it's a teeny bit tragic at times too. But not too tragic, because how can a brash [...]
