Yu Yu Hakusho is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Yoshihiro Togashi. Togashi began creating the manga around November 1990, basing the series on his interests in the occult and horror films and an influence of Buddhist mythology.
The manga was originally serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump from December 1990 to July 1994. The series consists of 175 chapters collected in 19 tankōbon volumes. In North America, the manga ran completely in Viz’s Shonen Jump from January 2003 to January 2010.
An anime adaptation consisting of 112 television episodes was directed by Noriyuki Abe and co-produced by Fuji Television, Yomiko Advertising, and Studio Pierrot. The television series originally aired on Japan’s Fuji TV network from October 1992 to December 1994. It was later licensed in North America by Funimation in 2001, where it aired on popular Cartoon Network blocks including Adult Swim and later Toonami. The television series has also been broadcast in various other countries around the world.
The YuYu Hakusho franchise has spawned two animated films, a series of original video animations (OVAs) as a part of its 25th Anniversary, audio albums, video games, and other merchandise.
