    This episode pits Yusuke and Kuwabara against the Toguro brothers and sees the rescue of Yukina.

    Hard fights for the boys and a beautiful victory through teamwork. Tarukane is bankrupt and nearly loses his life to Hiei's rage. It's a marvelous show of character development and a satisfying conclusion to the third case as Spirit Detective. There's just a taste of what's to come to hook the viewers into the next saga.

    It's a very beautifully-written episode, I think.moreless
  • Tarukne had it coming.

    this episode starts off with Elder Tougro transforming himself into a sword and Toguro powering up a little. Yusuke and Kuwabara begin figting the Toguro Brothers, but are clearly out of their league. Meanwhile, Hiei has made it to Tarukne's stronghold to save his sister, Yukina. When all hope seems lost, Kuwabara learns of what they did to Yukina and gets inspiration and seems to be up to facing Toguro. With the Spirit Gun, Yusuke gives Kuwabara a push to stab and defeat Toguro with the Spirit Sword. Hiei arrives and gives Tarukne the beating of his life. Yukina however prevents her brother from killing him, not wanting to see anymore violence.moreless
  • Kuawabara's love for yukina drives him to very powerful but will it be enough to stop toguro

    Yusuke and Kuwabara are no match for Toguro. Toguro is a class b demon. I would say Yusuke there was a C and Kuwabara was a lower C. Yusuke and his best friend tried many moves and still not even a scratch on toguro. Untill Kuwabara finally gets a glimpse of his never seen distant love. Thats when the tables turn for toguro.
  • Tarukane gets what he deserves..........

    This episode is about Yusuke and Kuwabara's fight against the Toguro Brothers.......

    The episode begins with elder toguro tranforming himself into a sword and younger Toguro powering up a little. The fight begins! Kuwabara and Yusuke are clearly out classed. Meanwhile Hiei gets into Tarukane's compound and is searching for Yukina. Just when all seems lost, Kuwabara gets insperation! Yusuke boosts Kuwabara into Toguro who gets impaled by the spirit sword ending the fight. Hiei arrives as well, and gives Tarukane, who is now ruined the beating of a life time. It all ends happily, but Hiei doesnt tell Yukina about him being her brother.

    Two things really bothered me in this episode. For such a hyped fight, the toguro's vs. yusuke and kuwabara was really too short, and the death of Toguro wasnt very believable, since elder toguro wasnt even hurt in the battle.... Still it was a good episode that leads to a great new saga.moreless
  • A happy ending to a great investigation.

    Everyone's waiting for the final battle that's about to commence. The Toguro brothers are the only thing that stands between Yusuke and Yukina. The other barriers weren't so tough, but not even Koenma has confidence for his own Spirit Detective. Kuwabara however senses very minimal spirit energy from them. That was until Toguro turned all buff, and his older brother turned into a sword. His very energy was nearly blowing the two junior high students away. If trouble started there already, picture what's about to come. And like predicted, Kuwabara and Yusuke constantly got their asses handed to them, no matter how many slick manuevers and tactics they used, until Kuwabara pierced through Toguro's stomach using Yusuke's spirit gun to propel himself.

    Everyone in the Black Black Club have been shocked at what they were watching, except for Sakyo, who seemed to have predicted this win on the Intruder's side. Tarukane, who just lost sixty six trillion, five hundred billion and two million, moved on to plan B; to foil Sakyo and take his fortune with him. Though an angered Heia prevented that from happening, slaying his bodyguards and men that lay in his path. Tarukane was next on his list, but Yukina begged to show mercy, and even released tears. She then thanked the ones who came to her rescue, having a little quality time with Kuwabara.

    I wonder if Kuwabara, Yusuke and Botan were smart enough to realize that the brother, who was never pierced, is still alive? Oh well, they'll realize in the next episode. They were much too happy overcoming the most powerful demon currently in the human world. This is indeed a rather touching episode that nicely wraps up the Rescue Yukina arc perfectly. Like usual, the protagonists are beaten to a pulp, but are fueled by the people who are counting on them to gain their energy from. Though I'm left wondering why Kuwabara wasn't hurt by Yusuke's spirit gun?

    The aftermath of the battle is where this episode truly shines. Seeing Heia finally seeing his sister was a touching moment, and how Yukina, who has been nearly emotionless according to Tarukane, shedding tears for the person that tries to make her cry. It's kind of like a really good metaphor. And even though it's love at first sight, the scene between Yukina and Kuwabara was pretty touching. So far, hands down the best episode, even though this entire arc was meant solely to build upon the very excellent Dark Tournament saga. Still a quality piece nonetheless.moreless
