YuYu Hakusho Author Drops 30th Anniversary Illustrations

Yu Yu Hakusho Author Drops 30th Anniversary IllustrationsIt’s kinda sorta* the 30th anniversary of the anime adaptation of YuYu Hakusho, and in celebration, the official X account has posted some new illustrations by the creator himself, Yoshihiro Togashi.

The gang’s all here, from Yusuke to Genkai to Hiei (but where’s Kuwabara?!).

Big week for YuYu Hakusho: aside from these pics, we also learned when the live-action Netflix series will be hitting screens.

Arigatou gozaiiiiimasu!

*as far as I can tell the show went on air in 1992, but hey, if the official account is saying it’s the 30th, who am I to argue?

Here’s the official description for the series, which ran from 1992 to 1994 in Japan and later in the US on Adult Swim:

From cutting classes to brawling in the streets, Yusuke Urameshi is not your typical role model. In fact, this kid’s nothing more than a fourteen-year-old delinquent with a talent for trouble. But in a single selfless act Yusuke dies while saving another. For such noble sacrifice he is given a second chance at life, but it’s to be a life far different than the one left behind. Now a Spirit Detective, the young man must track down demons and humans alike who desire to rule over the three realms of reality.
