Netflix’s Yu Yu Hakusho Live-Action Premieres Worldwide on December 14

The live-action Yu Yu Hakusho adaptation by Yoshihiro Togashi will ultimately be available on Netflix on December 14, 2023. The announcement was revealed by Netflix Japan through X (previously Twitter) along with a little video: “After five years of development, the renowned and enormously popular manga from Weekly Shonen Jump will finally be adapted into a live-action film for the first time in history!”

As previously announced, the cast includes:

  • Kazuma Kuwabara: Shuhei Uesugi (Man in a Business Suit, Shin Kamen Rider)
  • Hiei: Kanata Hongo (Armin, Attack on Titan [live-action])
  • Kurama: Jun Shison (Masa, The Way of the Househusband [live-action])
  • Yusuke Urameshi: Takumi Kitamura (Takemichi, Tokyo Revengers [live-action])

The staff includes:

  • Production studio: Robot
  • Director: Sho Tsukikawa
  • Script: Tatsuro Mishima

  • Executive producer: Kazutaka Sakamoto

The Yu Yu Hakusho manga was first published in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 1990. It was then converted into a 112-episode critically praised anime. After writing Level E and Hunter x Hunter, creator Togashi solidified his reputation as a top mangaka thanks to this series. One of the all-time best-selling manga series is Yu Yu Hakusho, which has sold over 78 million copies.

Yu Yu Hakusho is only available on Netflix, which advertises the next series as: What’s your favourite food? Noodles. That Spirit Gun move is his trademark. To keep his loved ones safe, a mischievous adolescent must learn how to use his newly acquired abilities.
Additionally, Netflix reveals that they approached Yu Yu Hakusho in the same way as they handled the most recent One Piece adaptation:
With the same worldwide one-team production model that was used to adapt the critically acclaimed “ONE PIECE” manga, Netflix applied the same degree of authenticity and quality control to the live-action ONE PIECE production as it did to the Yu Yu Hakusho project.
