Is Yu Yu Hakusho worth reading as someone who started with Hunter x Hunter?
>>
This probably the only time you'll hear this with regards to shounen jump series.

Watch the anime.

One of the few cases that is both dub > sub and anime > manga. So long as you don't expect it to be like HxH you'll have a decent time.

The subs are great. And yeah, YYH is a great manga. HxH is better in my opinion, because it frees itself more of classic shounen tropes but YYH have amazing characters.

>>154844355
Yeah, it's really good.

No.

you can do dub or sub, though the dub is pretty great and seems to suit the characters more

Yorkshin > Dark Tournament and Spirit Detective arc >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> rest of YYH >>>>>> rest of HxH

Koto is a 10/10 and Juri is a fucking 0/10.
>>
>>154843131
Worth reading?

No.

This is one of the rare situations where the anime is clearly superior to the manga.

You could even argue that the ENGLISH DUB anime is superior to the Japanese anime on top of that.

So just watch the ENGLISH DUBBED ANIME (it's up on YouTube)

YYH would have been 10/10 if it ended after Dark Tournament and grandma stayed dead.

That's just native language bias/nostalgia. All dubs range from mediocre to shit, including Finnish dubs for Moomins and Alfred J. Kwak, but I could never watch them in any other language. English dub of Cromartie is the only exception, all the rest of the well-regarded dubs are vastly overrated.

Yu Yu Hakusho is on of my favorite anime so yes. On that note I've only seen the 1999 Hunter x Hunter anime but I thought it was mediocre at best, with a really obnoxious protag and I just don't see what's so great about it.

Don' get me wrong they're both amazing, but Yorknew is only slightly better because some of the dark tournament fights were boring and the pacing was all other the place.

>That's just native language bias/nostalgia
No it's called not being a fat fucking weeb who assumes that all English voice actors could never succeed at portraying the character(s) they're playing.

And Chimera Ant arc finale was better than Yorknew!

Literal existentialism Kino!

>>154847490
you wouldnt be far off considering how every hunter x hunter thread on /a/ is full of gay shipping

however its a fantastic manga and anime...just the vocal minority of shippers belongs on /lgbt/ not on /a/

On topic its worth the read but has a different end then the anime. I liked the anime better overall and this is one of the exceptions id say the dub is better then the sub.
>>

I'm not saying that waito piggu are inherently incapable of reaching the level of VAs in glorious Nippon. Only that the ones actually on the field are.

>>154843131
It's like every bad anime trope being exaggerated but somehow it's good anyway.
I like it enough to recommend it even though it's cheesy.
Story is nowhere near as complex as you may be used to.
Lastly, kuwabara is a top tier bro.
>>
>>154848163
Most of the performances from the main cast in the dub are pretty good, but I never liked Laura Bailey as Keiko.

Some of the choices for characters in the dark tournament were questionable as well. There was really no reason for Jin to have a terrible Irish accent or for Chu to be a Straya cunt.

The anons telling you that anime > manga aren't just pulling your leg, OP. The manga is good enough on its own but when you compare it to the anime you can tell just how superior the latter is. You can watch it either subbed or dubbed, both are good, but this is one instance where I prefer the dub for the most part. Yeah, there are some annoying voices here and there but the main cast at least has solid VA's and they didn't do any weird localizations.

YYH is my all time favorite anime and I cannot recommend it enough. The characters are great, the action is great, the scenes that are supposed to hit hard succeed and while I do admit that the Three Kings arc kind of tapered off into wtf territory, the actual ending is surprisingly solid for a shonen.

Hiei best boy and my eternal husbando.

>>
>>154851350
>>154852604

The only problem I have with this pairing is that it feels like Mukuro was kind of shoehorned in to dissuade the Kurama x Hiei fangirls. Like Togashi was trying to say, hey, I never actually intended for them to be gay for each other. Sensui and Itsuki are definitely gay, and thats cool, but not Hiei and Kurama.

I wonder if her introduction and the semi romantic role she plays in Hiei's life was a decision pushed onto Togashi by his editors or if he decided it on his own.

>>154852903

Are you talking about Dr. Ichigaki or Sensui's minion who goes by the moniker Doctor?
>>
>>154852869
I thought Togashi literally said they were originally going to be gay with each other (before they became protagonists)
>>
>>154853031

Sensui's minion
>>
>>154853063

No. Originally Hiei was going to be a one off villain but he was so popular that Togashi made him a reoccurring character. Notice how Kurama had resolution to his story in the Forlorn Hope episode/chapter and Yusuke goes out of his way to help him. It was setup like that because Kurama was always meant to join the group.

Compare that to the Shadow Sword where Hiei is simply defeated without any kind of backstory for him being revealed and Yusuke clearly doesn't like him. The signs are obvious in the material but it was also confirmed in Shonen Jump that Togashi never had any plans to bring Hiei back until he became so immediately popular.
>>
>>154852903
The best directed episode of YYH.

That clip with Yusuke beating the shit out of Doctor at the end, loved every minute
>>
>>154843131
It's a fun time. The anime improves on some things at the cost of others -- the rougher, more horror-themed texture that Togashi sometimes gives his art is often missing, for example. I love the anime's ending, though.

As a story, YYH is mostly wasted potential. It sets up an interesting world with a lot of flexibility with fun characters but gets somewhat lazy and reduces everything to typical shonen fair. That doesn't mean it's bad, because it's still usually a lot of fun, but it could have been a lot more. HXH especially shows that.
>>
>>154852869
Makuro didn't feel shoehorned to me, she fit the narrative perfectly and helped show an interesting side of Hiei's character.
Also, I never really saw Hiei and Kurama as anything more than friends. If there was meant to be romantic chemistry between them, I didn't feel it.

>>
>>154855742
I always had the feeling that Mukuro was more something like a mother to Hiei. She really cannot be sexual at all (it's way more clear in the manga, sorry but I disagree with the anime better, it's really good but the manga is better on many aspects and stories untold in the anime). He loves her, but if it was supposed to be romantic, it's a big fail for me.

Did the manga expand the last arc more? It felt rushed as fuck in the anime.
>>
>>154857623
No it didn't, in fact some fights were created only for the anime but we had more things after it. Togashi didn't want to really write the last arc, he wanted to end with Sensui's arc, and you really feel it.
>>
>>154857546

Why not call it Hunter/Hunter
>>
>>154858315
It just is.
The x isn't even an x, it's a cross.
>>
>>154857546
I only watched the anime, so I'm not an expert, but I felt like there was huge potential, considering how similar they are and how well they work together.
I didn't feel mom-vibes from Mukuro in the anime, but maybe I'm just forgetting.

>>154858497
It's an interesting idea but it needed a lot more fleshing out and time to unravel than the handful of panels it got. Overall it was kind of a pointless twist, since it was established very early that there are both good demons and bad demons; it makes sense that there could be evil demons coming into the mortal realm just to fuck with shit. There wasn't any need to invoke some secret nefarious plot from Enma.

There also wasn't any need to make Yusuke a demon.

It was mostly just Togashi burning the story down so he could end it without someone else taking it over.
