I thought Yu Yu Hakusho was just a ridiculous fighting cartoon. It is an older anime, with a somewhat dated art style, and the feeling of cheap Saturday morning fare.

This is a show that spent an ENTIRE SEASON on a monster martial arts tournament, with everyone pulling named attacks out of their asses in exchanges along the lines of "You do not have enough spiritual power to defeat me!" "Oh yeah? How do you like my Triple Ultra Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Mega Demon Wind of Demonic Doom?" *blows up everything*

This is not to say that I didn't enjoy it... primarily because the interactions between the characters are cute, and there is a certain amusement in seeing just how over-the-top it can get...

But I felt that there was, perhaps, a certain lack of substance, and that my appreciation had more to do with my low standards for entertainment, than any particular merits on the show's part.

... Wow. I was in no way prepared for the end of Season 3*.

There are only two words:


*twitch* *twitch* *twitch*

*Unfortunately, the season breaks on my DVDs don't match up at all with natural breaks in the story, and Wikipedia seems to suggest that I am still somewhere in the middle of the actual third season.

Whether it is a ploy to force people to purchase the whole series instead of stopping at the end of a season, or the result of an attempt to shove as many episodes onto each disc as possible, at the expense of quality - it is disappointing. I never considered how jarring bad episode distribution could be, until now. Bad Funimation! No biscuit!
