Hiei is rather antisocial. Kuramais smart, calm and collected. Yusuke Urameshi Is cocky and arrogant. Kuwabara is not the sharpest character. raizen is Yusuke's ancestor

A manga-turned-anime which is similar to DragonBall Z(bleh) but a hell of a lot better.

One day, 14 year old Yusuke Urameshi suddenly finds himself dead, having died pushing a child out of the way of oncoming traffic. Since he has such a bad personality, even the Spirit World was caught by surpise that he would sacrifice himself. Yusuke soon finds out he wasn't supposed to die and has a chance for resurrection and bringing his body back to life. After being resurrected, Yusuke becomes a Spirit Detective, along with his comrades, and one adventure after another happens, whether it be an investigation or a fighting tournament.
Yu Yu Hakusho aired on Toonami in 2003 and was also shown on Adult Swim from 2002–2006. There are a total of 112 episodes.

An manga-turned-anime currently aired on Cartoon Network (bleh). Excellent anime, despite the butchering Cartoon Network is famous for.
"Did you see Yu Yu Hakusho yesterday?"

A kick-ass anime where a group of teenagers confront demons and dwindle on the border between life and death, demons and humans, and reality and fantasy. It is one of VERY few anime where the main character isn't all about virtue and peace and all that other stuff that makes animes look like comic book heroes. Man I hate it when they do that. The series goes on for 104 episodes with 7 sagas, the last three of which are the longest.

The series opens with Yuske Urameshi, a 14 year old loner who has no friends, never attends school, and gets into fights just to blow off steam. In a freak accident, he gets run over by a car and dies. He is confronted by the "grim reaper"(really a young lady in a kimono who rides on an oar) who says his death was not supposed to happen, so he gets another chance at lif, but becomes a detective for the underworld. His main weapon is a weapon of concentrated aura blown from his finger as a gun.

He is soon joined by Kuwabara, a fellow classmate who's only goal is to beat Yusuke in a street fight, but never does, Kurama, a collected individual who is "bishonen", and is constantly pushing himself to his own suicide. Basically, Kurama is a masochist. And Hiei, a demon convicted who weilds a sword and constantly wants to taste the blood of his opposers. He never truly sheds his "evil" skin.

Basiclly, after Trigun and Fullmetal Alchemist, Yu yu Hakusho is the best anime ever made.
