Togashi’s Yu Yu Hakusho manga originally ran from 1990 to 1994, collected in 19 volumes that are available in English through VIZ Media. A TV anime adaptation followed in 1992 and ran until 1995, followed by a pair of movies and two OVAs. A new OVA was released in 2018 to mark the series’ 25th anniversary.

Here’s how VIZ describes Yu Yu Hakusho:

Yusuke Urameshi was a tough teen delinquent until one selfless act changed his life…by ending it. When he died saving a little kid from a speeding car, the afterlife didn’t know what to do with him, so it gave him a second chance at life. Now, Yusuke is a ghost with a mission, performing good deeds at the beshest of Botan, the spirit guide of the dead, and Koenma, her pacifier-sucking boss from the “other side.” But what strange things await him on the borderline between life and death?
