“Ghost Fighter” or “Yu Yu Hakusho” in Japanese grew to popularity in the Philippines around the mid-1990s. It has since become a huge favorite as anime further increased its fans in the country.


Written by Yoshihiro Togashi, “Yu Yu Hakusho” started as a manga published in 1990 on the Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. It followed the adventures of teenage delinquent Yusuke Urameshi (Eugene) who became a spirit detective after his untimely death. Studio Pierrot produced the 112-episode anime adaptation, including a series of original video animations (OVA) and two movies. JB
