If I had to describe Yu Yu Hakusho I'd say that it's utterly typical for a long-running shonen fighting series.  Whether that's a positive or a negative description depends entirely on how you feel about long-running shonen fighting shows.

Fun trivia fact: the man who wrote and drew the Yu Yu Hakusho manga is married to the woman who wrote and drew Sailor Moon.  He also wrote and drew Hunter X Hunter.

perhaps she was was expecting a particular age range for someone who’d wear an anime shirt

My niece discovered Naruto after asking her grandfather what anime the characters on a shirt that he was wearing were from.

In other news, Restaurant to Another World is apparently getting a second season.

Thanks for the info. It'll be interesting to see if they continue with the same formula or start doing some deeper character development. That would change the mood of the show, but I feel that they couldn't take the original format too much further without becoming repetitive or getting really obscure. I could be wrong though.

What do you guys know about the anime Yu Yu Hakusho?

Earlier today I had a pleasant encounter with a cashier. She recognized the fairly subtle Cowboy Bebop shirt and mask I was wearing, and kept looking from my ID to my t-shirt and back...perhaps she was was expecting a particular age range for someone who’d wear an anime shirt, which was at odds with the age of 134 listed on the ID... :)





Anyway, there was no one behind me and she started chatting about Bebop and anime and I explained that I was a newbie but Bebop caught my eye on Adult Swim or wherever, and that it drew me in and I binged the series and I was idly wondering what anime to explore next. She mentioned that she'd been watching Hakusho and asked whether I'd seen it, and when I replied in the negative she sorta smiled with her eyes and said that I should check it out. :)

*  edit  *

Just watched the first ep of Yu Yu Hakusho...with English subtitles, of course :)  I'd read a one-sentence synopsis of the show while looking for episodes so I knew the basic concept, but nothing beyond that. The end of Ep1 was touching. I think I'll watch a couple more.



It's cool that you like Bebop.  It has a melancholy tone, middle age and floating, feeling alone and grasping for something to hold onto.

The overall tone and characters and their interactions are wonderful. But the soundtrack raises it all up to an epic level.

It is a genre unto itself, after all.

I've been watching To Love-Ru.  It's great stuff.  It's like Urusei Yatsura if it was made by the creator of Black Cat.

Although if you're allergic to fanservice you should stay far away from this one.

Is that one a Netflix exclusive?  If so, that's three more minutes of it than I'll likely ever watch.

I have no idea, but I watched another part of an episode of Devilman Crybaby.  In 2 years, I'll know what it was about.

Oof.  I can't imagine watching Banner of the Stars without first having seen Crest of the Stars to introduce you to the two leads.

I can't imagine watching the Star Wars films that way either, but then, I saw the second and third ones in the theater when they first came out, and I had already seen the first one before that, so it was never a possibility for me.

Just to offer conclusion after finishing the series:

Despite my screw up Crest was actually a bit interesting.. specially the whole War starting thing and how the 2 main characters get to meet and became friends..

Banner 1 as said i did enjoyed a lot specially the parts of space combat as its portrayed much more complex and seriously than other "dedicated" works.... also enjoyed the fact that the main chars crew a small destroyer rather than the typical invincible battleship

Banner 2 however.. was quite dissapointing.. sorry but in the end its just a history on a prission planet and largelly irrelevant and at times confusing..only Spoor parts were some interesting and many Abh characters like the 2 brothers were downright annoying..

Banner 3 improves a lot .. since we got continuation of what went on on Jinto homeworld and the consecuences.. but still not to the level of the first 2 works.. and of course it commits the far too common sin of countless manga-light novel adaptation: Left unfinished


Couple series after this i watched all 13 eps of "Starship Operators"

It was enjoyable.. and i actually really liked the main character, she seemed very relatable.. tought i have trouble excusing her from the "Marysue" trope at times since she esentially never is wrong or screws up and some times seem to magically guess a solution to a seemingly imposible situation.. even so somehow i really liked her character.. tought the others arround her seemed better fleshed out as some of them are not cut for the job but they have to go on with it..

The history was good but sorry it was very little developed or explained that it becames quite foggy and times and the final arc is downright confusing and dissapointing..even when it is the finale.. no continuations or cliffhangers.. At least its a round history ..not just the typical half made anime adaptation intented just to get people into buying the manga/novel if they want to continue the history..

Yeah, I think that it goes a long way toward explaining why those two are so close.  They've been through a lot together.

Banner 1 as said i did enjoyed a lot specially the parts of space combat as its portrayed much more complex and seriously than other "dedicated" works.... also enjoyed the fact that the main chars crew a small destroyer rather than the typical invincible battleship

I also like the fact that their ship's crew consists of just Jinto, Lafiel, and (if I recall correctly) three other characters.  I had a hard time keeping track of the large supporting cast in Crest of the Stars.



I went to see the Demon Slayer movie over the weekend.  I don't know if I'd recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen the TV series.  I mean, you probably don't have to have seen every episode, but it would probably help to have at least seen enough to know who the main characters are.

If you have seen the TV series, then you need to go watch this movie right now, or at least as soon as possible.  Seriously, go see it.  It's really good.

A second season of Made in Abyss has been confirmed for next year, so now I have to decide at some point if I'm going to tackle the movie. Based on comments I've seen, it might be best to drop the franchise without going any further. The first season was already getting close to my tolerance limit for some things, and the movie apparently goes beyond what came before, which makes me wonder how far they will push the boundaries in the next season.

If the second season requires a subscription to Amazon Prime or HIDIVE I probably won't be seeing that one either.

It's fine; it's not like I need to watch every show that Miyu Tomita is in.
