The story, popular with fans across generations, features demons and humans in a gripping narrative. The series, expected on December 14 on Netflix, promises a memorable visual experience.
Netflix continues to adapt cult mangas
After the success of the adaptation of One Piece in live-action, the platform exploits the vein. With Yu Yu Hakusho, created in 1990 by Yoshihiro Togashi, Netflix is tackling a new fantastic story which has already been adapted into an anime, broadcast between 1992 and 1994. The series tells the story of Yûsuke Urameshi, a brawling thug, terror of his school, who dies one day suddenly while saving a little boy from an accident. His unexpected death upsets the balance of the spirit and human worlds, launching Yûsuke on a quest to protect both worlds.
Last trailer before release
The live action adaptation of Yu Yu Hakusho is fast approaching. For the occasion, Netflix reveals one last trailer for the series adapted from the eponymous manga. A trailer as explosive as it is elaborate, which promises a series faithful to the original work while bringing its own visual touch.
A mixed reception from fans
Despite the excitement around this new adaptation, some Internet users seem doubtful about the idea and do not hesitate to share their fears on social networks. Fans of the original work are impatiently waiting to be able to judge Netflix’s work on this adaptation, but some cannot help but fear that the platform will destroy their childhood by revisiting this cult manga.
