Oh! And I felt the same way about YuYu Hakusho at first, even watched the first saga "spirit detective) and was actually surprised at it, I thought it was ok. Anyways Years later I actually decided to give the series another try, didn't finish it the first time and some people on the net encouraged me to try it. Anyways I did and wow! I was pretty surprised how good the series got, I'm watching it again on Blu ray right now, this show is freaking badass! Give it a try, don't stop at the spirit detective saga, that's alright but it gets much better and more interesting. lol, Yuske turned into the Mazaku, that was nuts. Anyway definitely check this out, it's funny and the fights are cool, i'm talking about the real fights, not the weak demons he fights in the beginning.
As for what I like the most!?! I really couldn't tell you, these I recommend because they are the best out of my collection and I watched them more than once or twice. Check'em out, give'em a try.
