Trivia

Many people think that Central Park Media licensed and dubbed Yu Yu Hakusho The Movie: Poltergeist Report after Funimation licensed the TV series, but this is not true. Central Park Media actually released Yu Yu Hakusho The Movie: Poltergeist Report on VHS in 1998, which was 5 years before FUNImation licensed the TV series in 2002. See more »

Why not use the show's cast?!
10 October 2004 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

Yu-Yu Hakusho is in my top five list of favorite anime shows, so naturally I got excited when I discovered Poltergeist Report. I was very disappointed when the characters started speaking, however. The dubbed cast for the movie is awful compared to the English cast for the show, which is awesome. I know the movie came to America long before the show (you really don't need to know jack about the show to have some understanding of what's going on in the movie), but I really wish that FUNimation would re-release it with the TRUE English cast.

Another flaw with the movie is the same flaw the show has: the animation, well, let's just say it's not offensively horrible, like what one would expect from an episode of Scooby Doo, but it could be better. The story is typical of movies based on action anime (an hour-and-a-half-long episode), but it is still an entertaining plot, so no harm done there. Overall, Poltergeist Report is something worth watching, it just depends on how you tolerate partially-formulaic approaches to movies.
