Is » Yu Yu Hakusho » one of the best shonen anime ever aired? I start: YES. Although today the name of Yoshihiro Togashi is more linked to » Hunter x Hunter «, especially as a result of the announced return of the manga , the truth is that the author has a finished story (yes, no joke) that marked time, this being that of the aforementioned story of Yusuke Urameshi. Well, tablecloth put, what if I told you there might be a slim chance of a remake being announced?
Why I think a remake of Yu Yu Hakusho is not nonsense
Before continuing I want to make it clear that this article is purely speculative , but seeing the number of classics ( for example «Urusei Yatsura» ) that have ended up coming back from the dead, raising the possibility for «Yu Yu Hakusho» does not seem unreasonable to me . Here are the reasons for my approach :
- First of all, it should be noted that for the month of October it will be no more and no less than 30 years since the first broadcast of the original Yu Yu Hakusho anime. ✔️✔️✔️
- Obviously some things have already been revealed in advance, such as a new logo for the franchise (funny, right?). But it is also that ‘anime news’ has already been reported. ✔️✔️
- In essence, what has been announced first is that two Yu Yu Hakusho OVAs, Two Shots and All or Nothing, will receive English dubbing . At first nothing very far, but it is more than nothing. ❓❓❓
- On the other hand and more curiously, the leaker Spanku (who is an infallible sniper, at least for now) commented a few days ago that he still did not have 100% confirmation, but he knew of the possibility that a great well-known title would count with a remake . Pay attention now to the following subpoints:
- In posting that tweet, a user told him ‘ Yu Yu or Nana ‘, to which Spanku simply replied ‘ I won’t say you’re wrong ‘. ❗
- In another completely separate tweet but from the same day , he commented on a user who had replied to a tweet and had Yusuke as a profile picture ‘ nice avatar, by the way ‘. Am I scratching too much? You can, but don’t stop being curious with everything else. ❗
Honestly, I don’t know how a remake of «Yu Yu Hakusho» would turn out or who would have to lead it so that it lived up to the original anime, but what I have clear is that I would see it for the mere nostalgia that awakens in me what was one of the first animes that I followed thanks to the Catalan regional television. In any case, I already tell you that there is no clear clue that goes in the direction of a remake, but at least I see that there is a scenario to raise it .
Synopsis of Yu Yu Hakusho
The story stars Yusuke Urameshi, a high school hooligan who is run over to death while trying to save a child. Apparently, the little boy was not going to die and from the spiritual world they are surprised at his altruism. Botan, a shinigami, leads her to Koenma, son of Enma, the ruler of the spirit world. Since his karma is completely balanced, they can’t send him to heaven and hell at the same time, so Koenma decides to give him a second chance by giving him a certain assignment so that he can get his life back.
