(SPOT.ph) Only '90s kids know the pleasure of watching a funny Tagalized version of manga series Yu Yu Hakusho, which we all know as Ghost Fighter. Where else do you think the chant "Tapusin! Tapusin! Tapusin!" came from? Or Taguro's very hugot realization: "Nagkamali ako para umasa sayo nang malaki. Hindi sulit na ibigay sa’yo ang 100% ng aking kapangyarihan." It might not be the same, but kids today (and probably those who want to relive their childhood) now have the chance to watch this exciting series on Netflix starting on June 26.
Ghost Fighter was first aired in the Philippines on IBC in the mid-1990s, then later GMA Network in 1999. It follows teenage student Yusuke Urameshi (a.k.a. Eugene) who dies after saving a child’s life. He is revived by the son of the Underworld’s ruler, but he now has the mission to investigate demon presence back on the surface of the Earth. His power? The signature rei gun (or "Spirit Gun"), which you might have imitated with finger guns at one point in your childhood.
Yu Yu Hakusho by Yoshihiro Togashi was first serialized in one of Tokyo’s weekly magazines from 1990 to 1994. It is inspired from the writer's interest in occult and horror films and has influence from Buddhist mythology.
Yu Yu Hakusho (Ghost Fighter) streams on Neflix on June 26.
