Yu Yu Hakusho
The longest and most savage arc of the "Yu Yu Hakusho" series comes to an end.... just in time for our heroes to get blindsided by a brand new threat to the world. Ah, fun. In fact, the third season of "Yu Yu Hakusho" is pretty much packed with entertainment. While the end of the Dark Tournament Arc is all hardcore, bloody action and quite a bit of pathos, the story that follows is even darker and more twisted -- although thankfully still tinged with a sense of humour. If only Yusuke's final duel with Toguro hadn't dragged out so long, this collection would have been ideal. Kurama barely triumphs in his duel with Karasu, until a replay reveals that he lost the point anyway. So it falls to Hiei to fight the monstrously powerful Bui with his newly retrained Dragon of the Darkness Flame, shattering the stadium and threatening to destroy everyone around him. And Kuwabara goes up against the grotesque, unkillable Elder Toguro -- who drives him into a rage with the revelation of Genkai's death. Then there's the duel everyone's been waiting for -- Yusuke and Younger Toguro. And though Yusuke's training has given him immense new powers, he still can't beat his demonic opponent. But then a familiar voice tells Toguro the secret to unlocking Yusuke's power -- kill one of his friends. And when Toguro seemingly murders a helpless Kuwabara, Yusuke's rage and grief cause his power to skyrocket -- but will it be enough to defeat Toguro's 100%? Then there's the aftermath of the battle. The team thinks back on the person they all miss, and in the Spirit World, Genkai has an encounter with Toguro -- revealing his true motives.
