Recently, some interesting news was broken by Yusuke and Kazuma’s dub voice at NYCC. It was about Funimation announcing at its Yu Yu Hakusho Reunion panel that it will release the new Yu Yu Hakusho Original Video Animation(OVA), including the episodes “Two Shots” and “All or Nothing,” with both English subtitles and an English dub. This news was broken by Justin Cook and Christopher R. Sabat, who played the characters Yusuke Urameshi and Kazuma Kuwabara indicated that they will be returning to their roles.

The release date hasn’t been confirmed by Funimation yet. The anime screened at TOHO Cinemas Shinjuku on October 2018, and also shipped with the fourth part of the anime’s 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Box collection later that month in Japan. The anime has adapted the “Two Shots” bonus chapter from the manga’s seventh volume, as well as the manga chapters like “All or Nothing.” The “Two Shots” tells the story of how Kurama and Hiei met, while “All or Nothing” shows the main characters reuniting to solve a hostage crisis in the spirit world.

As for the anime stuff, director and storyboarder is Noriyuki Abe at the studio Pierrot. Returning cast members included Nozomu Sasaki as Yusuke Urameshi, Shigeru Chiba as Kazuma Kuwabara, Megumi Ogata as Kurama, and Nobuyuki Hiyama as Hiei. The original Yu Yu Hakusho manga started from 1990 and ended in 1994. Viz Media started publishing the manga in its English edition of Shonen Jump in 2002, and it also released all 19 volumes.

In this, we follow the story of a 14-year-old delinquent Yusuke Urameshi, who dies after saving a child in a car accident. The Spirit World is surprised by his death and offers him a chance to come back as a “spirit detective” who is tasked with defeating demons. The TV anime adaptation ran from 1992 to 1995, and it has two films and two OVAs.

FUNimation Entertainment released the television series and OVAs on home video in North America. Media Blasters and later Funimation released the first film, and Central Park Media released the second film. The television series ran on Adult Swim and later Toonami.
