posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The staff of the upcoming original animation for the Yu Yu Hakusho franchise revealed the new anime's visual on Wednesday.
The anime will adapt the "Two Shot" bonus chapter from the manga's seventh volume, as well as the manga's penultimate chapter "All or Nothing." The "Two Shot" chapter tells the story of how Kurama and Hiei met, while "All or Nothing" shows the main characters reuniting to solve a hostage crisis in the spirit world. The anime will feature a returning staff, including director and storyboarder Noriyuki Abe at the studio Pierrot. Returning cast members include Nozomu Sasaki as Yusuke Urameshi, Shigeru Chiba as Kazuma Kuwabara, Megumi Ogata as Kurama, and Nobuyuki Hiyama as Hiei.
The OVA will come with the fourth part of the anime's 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Box collection. The fourth part will ship on October 26 in Japan.
The television anime adaptation ran from 1992 to 1995 and is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. The series also inspired two films and two original video anime (OVAs). Funimation Entertainment released the television series and OVAs on home video in North America. Media Blasters and later Funimation released the first film, and Central Park Media released the second film. The television series ran on Adult Swim and later Toonami.
