Netflix recently announced the development of a live-action series, adapted from the classic comic series “Yu Yu Hakusho” by Hu Chiayi Bo. This revelation came to the fore after the official social media manager of NX posted on Netflix on Wednesday, December 16, 2020.
Here is all the information you should check out about the Netflix reality show series:
What stage is it in now?
The upcoming Netflix adaptation of the classic boy’s manga series Yu Yu Hakusho has reportedly started filming in Japan.
We have been provided with a translation by Twitter user YourAnimeGuy, a Japanese fan of the series. They stated on Twitter that Yu Yu Hakusho’s live-action series began filming near them. After posting a publicity image clearly announcing that the series is being filmed in the area, the fan stated that Netflix appears to have established the entire commercial area of the street as a collection.
In a later tweet, the original poster mentioned that they saw the actors wearing greenish-blue school uniforms, which matched the colour of the school uniforms worn by the manga’s protagonist, Urami Yusuke. It can also be used to describe the school uniforms worn by him and his classmates at Sarayashiki High School. The series will report on star actor and pop idol Kitamura Takumi, who may be the star of the live-action film adaptation of Tokyo’s Avengers most familiar to Western audiences.
The series was initially announced via Netflix back in December 2020. Currently, the company has not issued any official announcements regarding production or casting.
About the series
Yu Yu Hakusho tells the story of Yusuke Urameshi, a 14-year-old criminal who drops out of school and fights every day. After unusually sacrificing himself to save a young child, Urhan was given a second chance at life, provided he agreed to serve as a spiritual detective. Under the guidance of Patan, the Spirit of the Harvest, Yusuke’s task is to investigate reports of malicious supernatural activities in the human world and fight the various demons and souls he encountered.
The original manga series created by Yoshiro Togashi was originally published in Shonen Jump in 1990-1994 and is often considered one of the most influential youth series of that time alongside Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball. Even before being translated into other languages, the Yu Yu Hakusho manga sold more than 50 million copies in Japan alone. The series was adapted into an animation in 1992 and was translated into English by Funimation in 2001. The animation aired as part of Cartoon Network’s popular Toonami block and established a fan following in the United States.
When can you stream the live adaptation?
Yu Yu Hakusho’s live adaptation will stream on Netflix worldwide, but the company has not announced an official release date. We hope this series is well received. Netflix’s Death Note is considered one of the worst live-action adaptations of anime/manga series, but real-time productions made in Japan are handled much better. It can take years for the studio to adapt Yu Yu Hakusho to a live-action version, so we wouldn’t be surprised if it launches in a few years.
What can you expect from it?
At the time of writing this article, Netflix hasn’t revealed any official plot details nor the release date about its live-action version of Yu Yu Hakusho, but we hope to show how Yusuke Urameshi became a criminal cop after his heroic. sacrifice. It can show how Yusuke meets Kuwabara, Hiei and Kurama, and it will show his adventures in the labyrinth castle. Although Dark Tournament Legend is the highlight of the anime / manga series, we believe that for the live action adaptation, it is important to show what happened before.
