Yu Yu Hakusho
When people were starting to get tired of the Dragon Ball Z phenomena, they had to look for something else, something new, but will still provide the action and excitement Dragon Ball Z has given them. Then comes Yu Yu Hakusho. In our area, as far as I can remember, Yu Yu Hakusho became a household name. Everyone was watching it. Even some unexpected people came out of nowhere acting like they were Toguro and Yusuke. Even my classmate in high-school used to put Yusuke's name as alias in his test papers. And I thought that was just too much. The story is different from Dragon Ball Z and you might also notice the attempt to give it more twist. But I could say that the action and fighting scenes were somewhat patterned from DBZ. Really a great and entertaining show. According to my brother, this is his favorite series of all time. And for the balanced amount of popularity and "how much I liked it", I put it at number 8.
Yes, DBZ deserves to be up there; in fact, I made my own list but mine was top 100 and was for all animated television shows. I think I put DBZ at number 3 on my list. With that being said, number 1 on my list was Yu Yu Hakusho. I have never watched a show animated or live-action as compelling and riveting as Yu Yu Hakusho. What an amazing show that's y I think it deserves to be the number 1 anime of all time.
THANK YOU! Yu Yu Hakusho is by far my favorite anime. This list has severely disappointed me. Dragon Ball Z is number 1? Clearly most of the voters are small children. As much as all of you would like to believe it Dragon Ball Z is the not the father of all anime, and it is extremely generic, standard, and un-creative, and it lost a severe amount of luster to me when it got to the point where every character could just blow up the world whenever they wanted. Dragon Ball Z holds nostalgia for me, but nostalgia isn't everything, without any plot, the bare minimum of character development, and tons of plotholes, it comes out as far worse than the fan boys believe. Then comes Yu Yu Hakusho. Delivered great action, had very compelling, interesting, and well developed characters, and a very well made and flowing plot, that keeps me hooked no matter how many times I re-watch it. I except how popular Dragon Ball Z is, but I simply can't acknowledge it as the best anime ever, when all it really has to offer is action, that becomes sub-par as the series continues, because it gets to the point when it's only energy blasts, and no martial arts.
Yu yu hakusho is funny, action packed and exiting. The characters are amazing and nothing I have ever seen or ever will see will make me stop loving this show. I watch it every day and even with friends. We evan watch it in anime club at my school. Everyone loves it. #1 all the way!
Yu Yu Hakusho delivered DBZ like action but had a much more engaging story, great characterization, Awesome intro's & outro's, didn't run on too long, concluded in a reasonable time frame for a long running shonen series & most importantly concluded perfectly. Without spoiling anything it wasn't just the typical teen action show that teases relationships between characters & then ends without anything significant ever being answered about the relationships. Instead when the action concludes there is a final episode that completes the drama part of the series & something great happens with Yusuke & Kayko
I used to watch this in the days of Toonami, when the best part about being a kid was fantasy worlds like Nintendo's and stuff. This show stands out because it is deep despite its brevity. It makes me question things about my life, and where I'm going. It inspires me to be noble and masterful. I cried watching this show more than any other. It cuts to the heart. It can be hilarious like no other, philosophical like no other, romantic like no other, intriguing like no other, and epic like no other. I have Ghost Files in DVDs, and they are of my greatest treasures. I thank God for the creators of Yu Yu Hakusho!
I wish I had as much to say as some people but what I will say is this is one of the first anime I ever watched nothing has ever surpassed it in my opinion, I must have watched every episode 6 or more times and my only complaint is that you can never watch something again for the first time
The BEST anime of all time! This is something that I will never ever tire of watching... Even after all these years of watching it over and over again, it amazes me that the emotions that I had when I first watched it were still the same ones that I'm experiencing now!
I have watched all these shows but not one have yu yu hakusho was indeed the one I'm most fond of and the only ever anime I have watched 3 times all the way thru.
and kuwabara is just the best " bed bed bed bes bet bu buta bulma brave "
ingore the "" bit just added it because I coudt post that post wothout em:S
ONE OF THE GREATEST ANIMES OF ALL TIME (my opinion) The story itself is AMAZING and all the other animes like Naruto, Bleach, One Piece etc... Are BORING because almost everything is similar to classic animes! Can't they make up something new, huh?
Amazing anime... Sure, it might be based on Dragon Ball Z, but doesn't everything come from some inspiration at least? No other anime can combine humour, action, and romance together like this anime. The ending wasn't very good, but still joyous!
Although it's an ancient anime from my childhood, I still firmly believe it deserves a better rating then this. The fights and plot are awe-inspiring. Simply brilliant. Wish it lasted longer
YuYu Hakusho is the best ever, I never seen such fun and exciting-kicking the bad guys asses.. I love it all-the characters and the story it self its great and awesome.. For me its all time favorite.
On a scale of one to ten I would rate Yu Yu Hakusho OVER 9000! My number one favorite anime of ALL TIME! What also makes it so good is The Chapter Black Saga which also brings in my favorite anime character of all time. SENSUI IS THE BOSS!
Well iam very interested in this anime. Well it is about a boy name yusuke who dies and by chance discovers that all was just a accident. He was sent to earth ad a spirit detective to destroy demons.
Yu Yu is one of the best anime ever I saw. It's not like other anime, I think it's special because of character and the story is great too. Anyway that's what I think and sorry for my english.
It's an amazing anime, with awesome fights. And the character development is pretty awesome. You do get back story for the characters as well and that is a very important to most anime, and manga.
Best on the list. YYH's storyline is amazing with a lot of action and some romance on the side. Had the best ending I've ever seen in any anime. I'm gonna show I'm kids the show.
Own the DVDs and re-watch the series all the time. Love the stories, the characters, and the nostalgia watching it brings.
DBZ and Yu Yu Hakusho are the two shows that got me hooked on anime when I was younger. Will always be my second favorite anime, a must see for any anime fan.
Great animation, well-constructed plot & interesting characters make this anime an instant classic!
THIS IS THE BEST SHOW TO EVER COME IN TO EXISTENCE!
To me the second best anime of time next to DBZ. I love the characters and the plots!
Yu Yu Hakusho was great. I liked it better then DBZ
I used to watch this animee many times along with inuyasha since I was a kid...
