The series first aired in 1992 based on the manga created by Yoshihiro Togashi. It follows the story of delinquent Yusuke Urameshi who dies after saving a kid from a speeding car. But because neither Heaven nor Hell has made a place for him (due to their surprise over his sacrifice despite his dishonorable history), they then decide to give him a chance to return to the land of the living through a series of tests. He then becomes a Spirit World Detective in charge of investigating supernatural occurrences in the mortal realm.

According to the “Coming Soon” page of Netflix, Yu Yu Hakusho is set to arrive on June 26.

The series is best known locally as Ghost Fighter after it was dubbed into Filipino and aired on GMA Network in 1999. The names of the characters were also localized: Yusuke as Eugene, Hiei as Vincent, Kurama as Dennis, and Kuwabara as Alfred.
