[note: review originally published sometime in 2006]

It’s the next round of the Dark Tournament, and Yusuke’s crowd have to face Team Ichigaki, whose mentor controls his fighters with Blood-Slaver nodes. And just over the horizon lie the next round, against the fearsome Shadow Channelers…

Togashi has ramped up the character development again, with both Ichigaki and the Shadow Channelers adversaries we get to know during the battles. But, as expected, the action doesn’t let up. The blend is wonderful; you gotta love Yuyu Hakusho. ****
