>The MC is your typical one dimensional idiot and a Mary Sue

>1/3 of the series is a single fucking tournament
>Every fight is almost exactly the same: Yusuke get's pushed back but then wins by some retarded asspull or the power of friendship, Hiei's fight are short as hell and only there to make him look cool and Kuwabara jobs hard everytime and even when he wins, the enemy he just defeated stands up to be destroyed by the another one.
>Koenma is a retarded, unfunny piece of shit and every bit he's in is boring.

>"10/10, best shonen EVER!"

I don't understand where all the hype from this comes from. I mean is not bad by any means, actually is kinda good if you overlook those bits, but I still think is not more than a 7-7.5/10 in overall quality. Why does /a/ like it again?

Kurama doesn't use the power of darness
>>
>>101158387

I do not.
Kuwabara made it good, everyone else apart from him and Botan were shit.
Fucking 4 kings arc.
>>
>>101158465
I thought Hiei was supposed to be second strongest because of his black dragon.

>>101158501
Kuwabara, Botan and Kurama feel like the only good characters of the show IMO. Everyone else pales in comparison.
>>
>>101158465
pretty sure Togashi put Kuwabara as second strongest in his rant page/quiz game.
>>
Kuwabara made this watchable.
>>
>>101158864
true or false i like this statement
>>
Murricans love it because they saw it on TV as kids. That's also why they hail the dub as something amazing, even though it's pretty shit.

Because it's good?
And /a/ isn't one person.

I watched this two years ago, it was enjoyable. It's pretty ground-braking as far as shounen goes. It seems stale because it's reused so much today.
>>
>examining a shonen anime this hard

its a fucking fighting cartoon, they're all like this. And besides this game out like, what? Before a lot of the cliches?
>>

I said that because people here were implying that this was a classic and a 10/10 anime, being one of the best of all time, then I watched it and got a little dissapointed that it was just another shonen, so I just wanted to hear what made it so special.
>>
>>101158387
>Yusuke
>Mary Sue

Holy shit just kill yourself.
>>
>>101159758
In my country people think Inuyasha is one of the best shonen ever made and is overrated as shit, fanboys are delusional.

It's a classic, that's undeniable, but it's not a masterpiece for sure.

It is.

There is no such thing as a 10/10 anime.

Of course.

>7.5/10

You're rather overestimated it; most anime reviewers gave it around 3/10 or 4/10
>>
>>101160696
Your opinion is now invalid
>>
>>101160642
No, because nothing is perfect.
>>
Punk with a heart of gold is best character type. Yusuke is one to an extent and kuwabara is most definitely one.
>>
>>101158387
>The MC is your typical one dimensional idiot and a Mary Sue
He was a nice break from fucking moralfag leads that dominate shonen
>>
>>101160236
Well a classic is just something that was really popular at some point without mattering its quality or value, naruto and bleach are classics of the 00s, yu yu hakusho is a classic of the 90s.
>>
>>101160390
>Inuyasha
>Shonen
It's shojo, 90% of the plot is romance based.
>>
You said it yourself OP, it's a 7/10 series. To me this qualifies as being good and worthy of praise. I've honestly never seen masses of people call it a 10/10 masterpiece, or any individual for that matter.
>>
It's my favorite show out of all 400~ or so I've seen, but it's by no means perfect.
>>
>>101160903
Tvtropes and their lingo isn't welcome here.

>"10/10, best shonen EVER!"
Are you sure you didn't get this mixed up with Togashi's other series? I've heard that said about Hunter x Hunter but not Yu Yu Hakusho.
>>
>>101161335
Well HxH is 9/10 so they aren't far off, it would be better if Gon wasn't so shitty.
>>
The anime completely fucked up the tone of the series after Dark Tournament. Sensui just feels like a bad guy with an evil agenda, and that never goes away. And everything after that takes itself too serious.
>>
Did you watch the dub or sub, OP? Dub is required for maximum viewing pleasure stemming from Kuwabara's voice Yusuke's English VN was actually very good and fit the role perfectly
>>
Hiei was the only one in the group that didn't liked much, loli Genkai should have been the 4th person of the group instead of him. Yusuke was a good mc and was different at the time, also he had a fucking girlfriend from day one with no bullshit. Kuwabara was dat fucking bro with hax sword time dimension powers that was cast aside in the fucking last arc when he should have been a beast. Kuwabara's family was special or something, at least there was a moment in the series that it was stated,but Togashi "fuck that, let Kuwabara be useless again".
Kurama was the 2nd indeed, that plant shit was way over the top.
Honorable mention to Botan and dat tournament host.
>>

The manga was the same. The Two Arcs after the Dark Tournament weren't in Togashi's plans but Jump had him do it anyway because YYH was a cash cow at the time. I think it was even beating dragonball in ratings.


>>101161819
Well...at least Kuwabara is more likely to have a proper job since he did end up getting his grades up. Yusuke ends up running a Ramen cart while taking Jobs from demons for cash that usually just end up with him getting autographs
>>
>>101161769
sensui arc was boring until sniper. being chased through the woods by a semi truck is fucking hilarious to me. also tower arc would have been great if it were lik 20 episodes longer and actually a fleshed out tournament like tdt.
>>
>>101161923
And Hiei gets a waifu that was raped since a kid. And demons and humans fuck each other, centuries later we have nen, ants, random shit and Yusuke's grandgrandgrandchild.
>>
>>101162008

I went back to YYH after HxH, so seeing the groundworks of Nen was really interesting to me. I really wish Jump let Togashi make Kurama kill that kid, though. That whole ordeal was super intense. It's funny because they let him get away with making Mukuro and her birthday present.

Stop being asspained that people liked a thing you didn't like that much. You're allowed to have your opinion and others can have theirs.
