Storyline

One day, 14-year-old Yusuke Urameshi suddenly finds himself dead, having died pushing a child out of the way of oncoming traffic. Since he has such a bad personality, even the Spirit World was caught by surprise that he would sacrifice himself. Yusuke soon finds out he wasn't supposed to die and has a chance for resurrection and bringing his body back to life. After being resurrected, Yusuke becomes a Spirit Detective, along with his comrades, and one adventure after another happens, whether it be an investigation or a fighting tournament.

Great show!
30 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I love this show.When this show first came on I thought it would be terrible,but I was wrong.This series had the perfect balance of action and story.It is a weird premise,but is very unique and original and each episode keeps you on the edge of your seat.Some of the later episodes I don't like as much,but in particular the first 50 or so are flat out amazing.If your a fan of anime,comic books,fantasy,or action in general this show is for you.It has emotion,and is more mature than most other similar animes on.The only thing I should note is this isn't a show for the kids(in particular the uncut version),I would say it is good for people 14 and up.This show is well worth your time.This show is a winner.

An almost perfect: 10/10!!!!
