A completed shonen manga series with 19 volumes created by Yoshiro Togashi (who creater later also Hunter x Hunter).
There was also an anime series which was very good.
Yu Yu Hakusho is basically Bleach, but actually awesome.
Yusuke Urameshi is a street-brawling delinquent with an tough guy approach to everything. Yusuke's mother Atsuko, an alcoholic, had him at the age of 15, and took a backseat in raising her son. He has a reserved seat in the guidance counselor's office, and numerous other delinquents in the city are trying to take him on. Yusuke is pretty fed up with life.
However, no one expects a sudden act of heroism on his part: he dies trying to save a little boy from a speeding car. In fact, when he arrives in the afterlife, he is informed that the child would've miraculously survived, and had it not been for him the child would have one less scratch on his right shoulder. Yusuke's premature death was unexpected and unnecessary, and the afterlife was not prepared for his arrival. After numerous tests to gauge his worth, Yusuke is eventually revived, and is assigned to work for the Spirit World as a detective investigating demon cases in the human worldhuman world.
He comes into spiritual abilities of his own, and enlists the help of numerous friends from Reikai (spirit world), Makai (demon world, translated in the English manga as the Demon Plane) and Ningenkai (human world) to aid him in his cases as they fight off demons and humans seeking to rule over all three worlds.
Standing in the Battledome
The series would used to be put against Dragon Ball back in the old days of the OBD and would often lose and cause shitstorms.
The series is still used today in the OBD and is often times put against One Piece in the majority of its matches due to the recent power ups in OP (as well as other popular shounen).
Most DT characters are low/mid tier HST level, while most end of series characters are + with massively hypersonic+ speed.
The YYH verse also has a 50km in-radius interdimensional laser.
Yusuke still has more quality in his left toe than the entire
