Just to give you guys a little background on the franchise, the anime series is based on the manga of the same name created by Yoshihiro Togashi, also the creator of Hunter X Hunter. The story centres around a teenage boy named Yusuke Urameshi who lost his life after getting hit by a car while saving a child’s life. He was then allowed to return to the living world but has the ability to see demons and spirits. Aside from this, Yusuke now has the role of “Underworld Detective” where he solves cases related to spirits and other creatures wreaking havoc in the human world.

The anime series began airing from October 1992 until December 1994 in Japan with a total of 112 episodes. The manga originally ran monthly in the Weekly Shonen Jump from December 1990 to July 1994.
