Yu Yu Hakusho celebrates 30th anniversary with special art

Yu Yu Hakusho is now in the midst of honoring its milestone 30th anniversary, and the anime is going all out with some special new art by Yusuke Urameshi and the other core fighters! Yoshihiro Togashi is now more active than he’s ever been in recent years as he’s returned to the pages of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine with new chapters of Hunter x Hunter. But this timing has also worked in a whole new way as his previous series has started a celebration of its own milestone anime anniversary as well.

After kicking off the 30th anniversary celebrations earlier this year with a special logo and some new character art, Yu Yu Hakusho has continued this even further with some cool new character portraits for Yusuke Urameshi, Kazuma Kuwabara, Hiei and Kurama. There’s a cool new look for the cast of the classic anime series (which is really in desperate need of some kind of revival) that mirrors Togashi’s own art, and you can check out these cool new designs below:

“From cutting classes to fighting in the streets, Yusuke Urameshi is not your typical role model. In fact, this kid is nothing more than a fourteen-year-old criminal with a talent for trouble. But in a single act of selflessness, Yusuke dies while saving a other. For such a noble sacrifice, he is given a second chance at life, but it will be a life far different from the one left behind. Now as a Spirit Detective, the young man must track down both demons and humans who wish to rule over three realms of reality.”
