One fateful day, Yuusuke Urameshi, a 14-year-old delinquent with a dim future, gets a miraculous chance to turn it all around when he throws himself in front of a moving car to save a young boy. His ultimate sacrifice is so out of character that the authorities of the spirit realm are not yet prepared to let him pass on. Koenma, heir to the throne of the spirit realm, offers Yuusuke an opportunity to regain his life through completion of a series of tasks. With the guidance of the death god Botan, he is to thwart evil presences on Earth as a Spirit Detective. To help him on his venture, Yuusuke enlists ex-rival Kazuma Kuwabara, and two demons, Hiei and Kurama, who have criminal pasts. Together, they train and battle against enemies who would threaten humanity's very existence.

One of the greatest Shounen series of all-time. With a lovable, well-written cast of characters, super cool abilities and awesome battles.


There’s something for everyone, including action, comedy, mystery and romance. It’s honest and unpretentious but at times a bit repetitive.


The adventure of a delinquent who dies turned spirit detective is often packed with hilarity and gut punching action. Heartfelt to the core


A great shōnen series that starts off great and ends great. Full of action, laughs, and real genuine tear jerking moments


Yoshihiro Togashi’s first resounding success. A battle shonen for the ages.


This is a great show. I would recommend anyone to watch it beginning to end.


Togashi’s first major work that leaves you feeling nostalgic and reminds you of why you fell in love with anime.

    “When do you think people die? When they are shot through the heart by the bullet of a pistol? No. When they are ravaged by an incurable disease? No. When they drink a soup made from a poisonous mushroom? No! It’s when… they are forgotten.” – Dr Hiruluk, One Piece
