Production

[edit]

Author Yoshihiro Togashi stated that he began working on
YuYu Hakusho
during a period of time around November 1990, though he forgot the exact time.[v]
He had recently completed the serialization of his romantic comedy
Ten de Shōwaru Cupid
in
Weekly Shōnen Jump. Having felt somewhat intimidated by some of his more pop fellow authors during this manga’southward run, Togashi realized he would demand to create a fighting manga to both gain popularity and write something he enjoyed.[6]
As a fan of the occult and horror films, he desired to write and illustrate a new manga based on his interests.[seven]
Togashi had previously published an occult detective fiction manga titled
Occult Tanteidan, of which he referenced positive reception from readers equally a reason for standing to create manga.[viii]
When first producing
YuYu Hakusho, he did non accept a clear idea of what he wanted to phone call it. He used the tentative championship “How to exist a Ghost” while presenting rough drafts to his editors. In one case given the go-ahead to begin publication, Togashi proposed “YuYu-Ki (Poltergeist Chronicles)” for the title, as there would exist battles with demons and it would exist a play on the championship
SaiYu-Ki. Considering a serial with a like name (Chin-Yu-Ki) had already begun publication, Togashi quickly created an alternative: “YuYu Hakusho (Poltergeist Written report)”.[9]
He commented that he could have used “Den (Legend)” or “Monogatari (Story)”, but “Hakusho (Report)” was the first thing that came to his mind.[10]
He contiguously developed the names of the main characters past skimming through a dictionary and taking out kanji characters he found highly-seasoned. “Yusuke Urameshi” is a pun, “Kazuma Kuwabara” is a combination of two professional baseball players, and “Hiei” and “Kurama” are “just names that popped into [Togashi’s] head”.[7]
When he introduced the latter two characters in volume iii, the author had early plans to make Kurama a main character merely was not sure nearly Hiei.[6]
[seven]

The manga’s shift from occult detective fiction to the martial arts genre after Yusuke’s death and revival in the early chapters was planned by Togashi from the beginning.[7]
He took this idea from the series
Kinnikuman, which began largely as a comedy earlier concentrating more on action.[half dozen]
Togashi’south intention was to establish the main characters and familiarize the reader with them earlier placing them in tense, concrete conflicts. His editor at the time was nervous of him beginning the manga this way and recommended he transition to a boxing-focused plot after nearly thirty chapters.[six]
YuYu Hakusho
borrows many elements from Asian folklore, particularly Buddhist behavior in the afterlife.[2]
[4]
Togashi came up with the concept of the
Ningenkai
(Human Earth),
Reikai
(Underworld), and
Makai
(Demon Plane) as being parallel planes of existence in the manga’due south universe. He thought of them every bit places that 1 could not easily travel betwixt using modern technology, but rather as a spirit defective a material torso.[7]
Even so, the idea for the “territory” powers from the Sensui story arc was parodied from a carve up, unnamed work by Yasutaka Tsutsui.[11]
[12]
For his drawing materials, Togashi used drafting ink and
Kabura
pens throughout the creation of the series. While his style of artwork began with screentone, he gradually adult into minimalism. As the serial progressed, he would draw figures and faces very detailed or “cartoony, sketchy and jumping with action” whenever he desired such effects.[7]

During the years he worked on
YuYu Hakusho, Togashi would calculate the personal time he had based on a formula of four hours per page without scripting and 5 hours of sleep per night.[13]
He wrote in his own dōjinshi
Yoshirin de Pon!
that he stopped the production on
YuYu Hakusho
out of selfishness.[14]
The writer had originally wanted to stop the manga in December 1993, at the climax of the Sensui arc.[eleven]
[14]
Although at that place was non a large demand from the editorial staff, Togashi was under a great deal of personal stress at sure points of the series’ run, especially during its final six months of publication. He claimed that, starting time with the Dark Tournament arc, inconsistent sleep resulting from overwork was causing him health problems.[14]
He noted himself as existence very ill while working on the color pages for Yusuke’southward friction match with Chu.[11]
There were as well many instances where he would create nearly entire manuscripts by himself, such as Yusuke’south meeting with Raizen and the boxing between Kurama and Karasu.[14]
The editors of the publication tried to make Togashi reconsider cancelling
Yu Yu Hakusho, though he justified his decision by stating that information technology would only be replaced by some other popular series.[6]
Togashi was relieved at the conclusion of the manga.[11]
The author claimed to not have been involved in the production of the
YuYu Hakusho
anime adaptation due to his own work schedule. He stated that he was greatly impressed past Shigeru Chiba’south vocalism delineation of Kuwabara, admitting that the voice actor understood the character amend than Togashi himself.[15]
