In honor of the seminal ‘90s anime series’ 30th anniversary that began this month, Crunchyroll will be offering a brand new Yu Yu Hakusho Collector’s Edition Blu-ray Box Set in January that comes complete with the entire series, both 25th anniversary OVA specials, in addition to the English dub versions and plenty of geeky surprises.
Yu Yu Hakusho was based on the original manga series by Yoshihiro Togashi and first hit the airwaves back on October 10, 1992. It ran for 112 episodes until it was canceled in December of 1994. Crunchyroll salutes the addictive underworld detective series by offering up a deluxe Blu-ray collection on January 31, 2023.
Check out the series’ official description:
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.
This Yu Yu Hakusho 30th Anniversary Box Set is fortified with special anniversary artwork, all four seasons (Episodes 1 – 112), two never-before-dubbed OVAs featuring the original vocal cast, blooper reels, creator commentaries, cast interviews, and more than 90-minutes of informative bonus features including segments on the series’ lasting legacy.
In addition to the prestige-format birthday release for Yu Yu Hakusho, avid anime fans will be ringing in the New Year with plenty of viewing material as Crunchyroll presents a wealth of spirited series on Blu-ray like The Stranger by the Shore Limited Edition, Black Clover Season 3, Sasaki and Miyano, Sabikui Bisco, Obey Me!, One Piece, The Genius Prince’s Guide To Raising A Nation Out Of Debt, Platinum End, and Ascendance of a Bookworm Season 3.
