Episode Summary

Return to Demon World
Control of Demon World is divided among three rulers: Raizen, Yomi and Mukuro. From his deathbed, Raizen has invited his descendant, Yusuke Urameshi, to return to Demon World to train under him for one climactic battle. Yusuke's first challenge is to defeat his ancestor. If he cannot defeat one of the three kings, how could he expect to stand up to the other two?!moreless

  • Yu Yu Hakusho never ceases to amaze me.

    Everyone meets at Genkai's temple. Yusuke tells everyone there the bad news that he'll be gone for three years in order to fight in the name of his great ancestor Raizen, but of course he's only doing it to kick his ass for interrupting the fight between him and Sensui. Kuwabara gets all upset, and believes Yusuke might come back a bad demon, but Yukina defends him. Heia and Kurama show up, telling Kuwabara that they're also going to demon world, but they're all joining separate sides. He gets upset over how their team is splitting up like this. Yusuke is the first to go, and when he gets there, the three stooges immediately greet him. They run straight for three days towards the castle of Raizen. His growl is so loud, that demons use it as a passing of time. Yusuke, upon meeting him, tries kicking his ass, but fails miserably.

    I can't say that this episode was bad just because I didn't rate it as high as the others, but that's only because the other episodes are just so superb. In terms of comparison, this viewing felt more like a filler episode, literally in a way. Not the filler intended to stall progression of the story in order for the manga to get ahead, or the type that isn't related to the story; filler as in it does exactly that; fill in the gaps. Yeah yeah it's a term I made up just now, but I really had no other way of putting it. It does what it's set out to do, and it does exactly that. Though it's not boring by any means.moreless

    • (A rumbling takes place inside the tower where Yusuke and Raizen are.)
      Monk: Well, that sounds about right for a father-son reunion.

    • Kuwabara: What do you mean you're going back there? (grunts) When we were there you said you wanted to go home and now that you're here, you want to go back. Maybe you're just a spoiled brat who can't be happy anywhere?
      Yusuke: I've decided. Despite your kind and heartfelt tribute, I'm going back.
      Kuwabara: So what are you gonna do there?! You gonna turn into one of them and then come back and attack us, huh?!
      Yusuke: I don't know.
      Kuwabara: You don't know?! (He punches Yusuke out the door.)
