Program Abstract: It’s another typical day for troublemaker Yusuke Urameshi: cutting classes, clashing with teachers, fighting local tough guys. Just when everybody thinks they have the hoodlum figured out, Yusuke surprises even himself by diving in front of a speeding car to save a little boy, getting himself killed in the process! From from the end of a story, it's the start of an epic saga. Yusuke gets a second chance at life and becomes a Spirit Detetctive, charged with tracking evil supernatural beings and preventing them from fulfilling their diabolical plans. Yusuke teams up with his old rival Kuwabara, the elusive Kurama and the dark and cynical Hiei. As they battle their way towards exotic locations like Maze Castle and the Gate of Betrayal, this awkward alliance better learn to trust each other, and do it post-haste or it might mean the end of the world!
