The Edit List
Yu Yu Hakusho Introduction

by Mike Majeski, Aug 12th 2003
It is with great pleasure that Kyle Pope and Anime News Network have agreed to host Mike Majeski's Yū Yū Hakusho edit lists such that the fruits of his labour can be enjoyed by all our readers. Currently Mike's edit list starts with episodes 9 and 10, but he will be adding episode 1 through 8 when they are re-broadcast in the future.




Needles to say, when I first heard that Yū Yū Hakusho was moving to Toonami from Adult Swim, I was a little apprehensive. I was hoping that it would retain the same level of editing that Adult Swim had. I know now that it was a little bit much to ask for. In all actuality, it is turning out to be one of the most heavily edited shows Cartoon Network airs. (OK, maybe I can't back up that claim. But it certainly seems like it at times). Now the first time I'm seeing a lot of the unedited episodes is when I'm doing this list. So I'm might be a little surprised what is revealed at times.

Yū Yū Hakusho is a 112 episode FUNimation title. It depicts the life of Yusuke Urameshi. It all starts one fateful day when the young Yusuke does a selfless deed that no one saw coming (Including the powers that be in the Spirit World).

Typical edits to expect...

  • OP and ED removed. If they show the ED, it will be a shortened version.
  • Language Edits, Yusuke is a Foul mouthed punk. And that fact alone should keep the sensors busy.
  • Blood... a lot of the blood will probably be removed. Not that it's excessive, but it can at times... ridiculous.
  • Any Vices (like Smoking, Drinking, etc.).
  • And pretty much anything else that threatens the status-quo. (Just take a look at Miyuki in Episode #24 "The Deadly Triad" as an example).
