9. Should I mention that Shizuru's cigarette is removed again (after Boton almost tells everyone that Hiei is Yukina's brother)

10. ENDING TITLES - Second ED replaced with the first ED.



If there was a bad side to doing this edit list it has to be watching Kuwabara make a fool out of himself trying to impress Yukina. I know it's there to provide comic relief; but it's a tad over the top for my tastes.
