14" x 11" Work-in-progress photos: 1 and 2 Kuwabara as a knight/paladin? WELL OBVIOUSLY
Yusuke as a monk? Hell yeah~
Botan as a mage? Works for me! My submission for the Yu Yu collaborative fanbook! (If you wanna contribute, you still have till Feb 5 LEARN MORE AHHH) Thank you orangisque and my sis for helping me with my screaming and crying over colour retouching. I realized afterwards I should have drawn a pile of demons in the background DANGIT And I guess this means in Kuwabara’s imagination Yusuke doesn’t have a shirt on is this a problem no I didn’t think so COMPLETE DIGRESSION, because it’s standard when I post … Yusuke makes fun of Kuwabara for a lot of things, but I totally love that not once does he ever make fun of him for his love at first sight for Yukina.
  1. He spends the majority of the Yukina rescue having a ton of fun following the other guy around beating things up, and his only comment about the two of them is “eh wonder what Kuwabara’s reaction would be if he knew she’s Hiei’s sister”.
  2. When Kuwabara’s like “I’m gonna psychically communicate with her OMG I DON’T EVEN KNOW HER NAME” all Yusuke says is “It’s Yukina”. It’s only when Kuwabara is all “HOW COME *YOU* KNOW THAT” that he goes on to retort that he actually watched the entire video.
  3. After the confrontation with the Toguro brothers, when Yukina runs up to him asking if he’s okay, he directs her to Kuwabara and runs off so they can have a private conversation (then again he really wanted to kick Tarukane’s ass)
  4. At the end of the series in the manga, when Genkai’s is flooded with demons seeking shelter, he’s the one who arranges for Yukina to find a place to live at the Kuwabara household. And later goes (to Kurama), “Oh crap, his grades are gonna tank!” lmao
Kuwabara and Yukina is Yusuke’s otp what a matchmaker /BROTP
The YuYuRewatch has begun!

Slap on your neon orange jacket and flex those Spirit Gunning fingers, we’re ready to get this bad boy started!

Our rewatch kicks off this month with the Spirit Detective Saga

That covers episodes 1 through 28 (or the entire season 1 DVD boxset), so make sure to download or watch accordingly! This arc introduces us to many of the main cast and mechanics of the series, and while not quite as dramatic as the upcoming arcs, it definitely has it’s fair share of gut-punching emotional moments (I dare anyone to get through the second half of episode 1 without tearing up even a little)

This week covers episodes 1 through 7, so send us your thoughts, headcanons, reactions, art/fic/interpretive dance through either our ask, submission box or through the #YuYuRewatch tag! (And remember to keep it friendly and put NSFW things under a cut!) We’ll begin posting them next week when we start episodes 8 through 14!

Have fun, Hakubros!
