As I already said before, after the introduction of Yuyu Hakusho, it’s time to write about The Dark Tournament. Before reading this post, if you know nothing about Yuyu Hakusho, please read Yuyu Hakusho: An Introduction first. In that 1st post, I have written about the main characters of this anime.
After defeating The Four Beast of the underworld, Yusuke received a new job. This time, he went only with Kuwabara. The mission is to save a beautiful Yokai that can control snow, her name was Yukina. Yukina was a special yokai that attracted many greedy human. When Yukina cries, her tears will turn into a rare pearl. She was kidnapped by a rich man and he tried to make her cried by using 2 powerful yokai called The Toguro Brothers. Kuwabara was in love with Yukina, he doesn’t know that Yukina was Hiei’s sister. They could save Yukina by working together and defeated The Toguro Brothers easily.
However, The Toguro Brothers weren’t really defeated by Yusuke and Kuwabara, they were pretending to be defeated by them because a man named Sakyou asked them to do so. In return, Toguro-otouto (the youger Toguro) asked Sakyou to invite Yusuke to the Dark Tournament so that he can fight him fair and square in that tournament.
What is The Dark Tournament? The Dark Tournament is a tournament held once a year in a remote island. The tournament was participated by Yokai around the world, they were trying to find the strongest yokai in the world. But, there was always human involve in this tournament, they invited human as guest fighter. The tournament itself was not held by yokai, it was held by greedy human who used the tournament to gain what they want. The winner of the tournament will get everything they want without any exception. The owners of most the teams that joined the tournament were human being.

I have been using my 2 weeks holiday to watch Yuyu Hakusho. It isn’t my first time watching it, I’ve watched this anime in early 2000. My friend bought the DVD recently, because I like this anime quite a lot, I borrowed it and use my holiday to indulge my self with Hiei, my favorite character in Yuyu Hakusho. The English translation for Yuyu Hakusho is Ghost File.
The story is about a boy named Urameshi Yusuke, he was a delinquent boy who liked to play truant. Although he liked to fight, his heart was kind. One day, he was hit by a car when trying to save a little boy. He met a girl named Botan, she worked for Koenma, the highest authority in the Spirit Realm. Botan told Yusuke that he wasn’t supposed to die. Koenma gave Yusuke a chance to be alive again. At first, he refused the offer because no one in his world will miss him anyway. However, he soon saw that his mom and his childhood friend, Keiko, were heartbroken by his death. To his surprised, his all time rival, Kuwabara Kazuma, couldn’t accept his death too. Seeing those people made him decide to take the task that will bring him back to life.
When he finally lived again, he realized that he could see spirits. Koenma appointed him to be the Spirit Realm Detective. He had to solve problems caused by Yokai in Human Realm. His first big case was taking over 3 spirit items that were stolen from Koenma. The thieves were 3 wanted Yokai; Hiei, Kurama and one that I’ve already forgotten his name. Hiei was the one with cold heart and planning to change all human into yokai. Kurama only joined this group so that he could save his human mother. Kurama gave the item back to Yusuke without a fight. Hiei did a dirty trick by kidnapping Keiko. Yusuke defeated Hiei and returned all the items back to Koenma.
