Why doesn’t Yu Yu Hakusho get the same love as other anime’s
 

 
We always hear about Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, Inyuasha, Cowboy Bebop, JoJo, and various other legendary anime, but Yu Yu gets overlooked every time. It didn’t really hit me until I was talking with my younger cousin and his friend and they brought all those other anime’s. When I hit them with Yu Yu they looked at me like I was crazy and I just shook my damn head����. The younger generation doesn’t even know what Yu Yu is and it got to the point where they started naming whole other anime’s that came a decade after placing them in the goat conversation. Why is Yu Yu Hakusho so disrespected and pushed aside.

Yu Yu in my opinion had one of the strongest tournament arcs in any anime series. And that seems to be the consensus when you ask other older anime watchers. So why is their tournament arc so respected and acknowledged, but every thing before or after that specific arc disregarded. Help me understand put some respect on Yusuke’s name damn it.

Yu Yu gets named a LOT but……as far as the younger generation more than likely I’d say…it’s the slow beginning.

I love the show, it’s personally my favorite anime of all time…but that first season was slow as a motherfu*k & every time I’ve talked to someone about the show they bring up they haven’t made it to the dark tournament yet cuz it’s slow.

I agree with 95% of what you said, but the statement about Yu Yu getting names a lot is something I just can’t back. Yu Yu is treated like the bastard child on the anime world. One of my reasonings is the series had very few games that were any good. I noticed more so that the anime’s people talk about especially in the mainstream have the better games. Yu if i remember only had one game and that was back in the PS2 era and it was terrible. Japan got the better games and I think it shows because they have a bit more respect for Yu Yu than Americans do in my opinion.

It ended too early imo how you find out you’re a demon knockoff the old spirit detective and it’s over after that there should’ve been wayyyy more to that series. Like home the mom who’s a alcoholic and smokes like a sauna not know she was fu*kin a demon king. What annoys me with a bunch of animes is the markings on the skin and the hair growing longer those are the lamest transformations. Yu yu easily holds a top 5 with me being no lower than 3rd.

they should remaster this like they did hunter x hunter. Then they can add on to the end like everyone wants, even if the original artist isnt up to it.

Ah that's what it is then, I started and stopped watchin this anime twice but never made it too deep

The characters seem cool and I always hear this is 1 of the best animes but I just always found myself not paying attention n having to rewatch the episodes

Guess I'll try again

Yu yu gets love. The ending was type trash. Felt rushed. I watched with my son. One of the best tournaments in anime that I've seen. After the tournament it's like they ram out of ideas and had to make something up for another season. Iykyk tho.

That’s exactly what I mentioned every argues that it has the best tournament arc in anime period over every other anime. But after that many people just didn’t resonate with the following arcs it’s really shocking thing to understand, but you at least have a reasoning you felt it was thrown together.

YYH gets respect, but it doesn't get love, if you know what I mean.

I respect where it stands(stood) in the culture when it dropped, but personally it came down to the art style for me. It looked like Macross (imo) and I was probably more into art back then, than story.

When I think Goat old school anime, I usually go to: Vampire Hunter D/Bloodlust, One Piece (99), DB, Cowboy Bebop and Ninja Scroll since they were pre 2000.

All my statements are opinions, and I'm definitely accepting of everyone else's.

I've been wanting to watch it but Hulu only has the eng dub and I'm a big sub fan, and haven't watched it for that reason. You think the voice acting or dialogue is good in the dub?
