Excuse me while I lose my composure for a moment.
(Yes I’m aware this isn’t Yu Yu Hakusho, but let me have my happy moment.)
There we go.
Earlier today, fans flocked to the annual Jump Festa event. At the show, a display was set up, which confirms that Yu Yu Hakusho is getting a new anime project. As of press time, no details have been revealed.
Yu Yu Hakusho is a 1992 series, which is based on Yoshihiro Togashi’s manga of the same name. Noriyuki Abe (Bleach, The Heroic Legend of Arslan) directed the project at Studio Pierrot, with the team of Minoru Yamazawa (eps. 1-19), Mari Kitayama (eps. 20-112), and Masaya Onishi (eps. 20-112) providing character designs. Yukiyoshi Ohashi (Ceres, Celestial Legend) was in charge of series composition for the project.
Funimation currently holds the home video rights for Yu Yu Hakusho, and streams the dub on FunimationNow. Crunchyroll describes the show as:
From cutting classes to brawling in the streets, Yusuke Urameshi is not your typical role model. In fact, this kid’s nothing more than a fourteen-year-old delinquent with a talent for trouble. But in a single selfless act Yusuke dies while saving another. For such noble sacrifice he is given a second chance at life, but it’s to be a life far different than the one left behind. Now a Spirit Detective, the young man must track down demons and humans alike who desire to rule over the three realms of reality.
