According to reports, the live-action Japanese television series “Yu Yu Hakusho” will premiere on Netflix on December 14 around the globe. The show centres on Yusuke Urameshi, a junior high school student who perishes in an accident while attempting to shield a little infant, and is based on the same-named manga by Yoshihiro Togashi. Yusuke is not allowed to enter paradise because he was a miscreant, but since he dies after doing a good deed, he is also not condemned to hell. As a result, Yusuke is granted the opportunity to be revived, and after passing his trial, he is appointed an Underworld Detective. From there, Yusuke is drawn into a mystery that encompasses the realms of humans, demons, and spirits, according to Netflix.
Although the manga has previously been turned into an anime, Togashi’s original work serves as the basis for the live-action series. Director Sho Tsukikawa spoke to Netflix about the adaptation and said, “When I first heard about Yu Yu Hakusho receiving a live-action adaptation, I honestly wondered if it would even be possible. But after being presented with the producer’s vision and possibilities with Netflix, my expectations grew and I found myself burning with passion to make this project come to life.” ‘And Live,’ ‘You Shine in the Moonlight,’ ‘My Little Monster,’ ‘Let Me Eat Your Pancreas,’ etc. are among the films Tsukikawa is renowned for directing.
There will be “plenty of action scenes” in the series, Tsukikawa had promised the manga fans. “We use cutting-edge technology to provide the highest quality visual effects possible, so they are extremely sophisticated. Last but not least, we were very much aware that we were making a series for a worldwide audience, the director told IGN. “I will continue to pour my heart and soul into the project to deliver the best entertainment from Japan to the world,” he continued.
Yusuke Urameshi is portrayed by Takumi Kitamura, best known for his roles in “Let Me Eat Your Pancreas” and “Tokyo Revengers.” “The original work is a timeless and singular masterpiece and the foundation of Japan’s vibrant manga and animation cultures. In the same interview, Kitamura said to IGN, “I am glad to share Yu Yu Hakusho’s masterpiece with the world, and I hope we can produce something people all around the world will appreciate. The remaining cast members are Shuhei Uesugi (‘Followers’ and ‘Awaiting Kirin’), Kanata Hongo (‘Kingdom’ and ‘Attack on Titan’), Jun Shison (‘Battle of Supreme High’ and ‘Bubble’), etc.
