Known as the "Toguro" or "Dark Tournament" Saga, the second season of the fantasy-adventure Yu Yu Hakusho, focuses on Team Urameshi's entry in the supernatural Dark Tournament, the demonic equivalent of a WWF tag-team smack down. Yusuke Urameshi abandons his duties as a "spirit detective" to lead his comrades Kuwabara, Kurama, Genkai, and Hiei, into battle. They fight a variety of bizarre, powerful demons in one-on-one matches. But what happens outside the Tournament Arena may prove more important. Yusuke finally hatches the "spirit egg" he acquired after his death a year earlier. Phuu, a creature who looks like a cross between a blue penguin and Ryo-Ohki in Tenchi Muyo, emerges from the glowing shell--a symbol of Yusuke's hidden kind heart. Knowing that Yusuke isn't strong enough to take on the Terminator-like Toguro, Genkai teaches him the "Spirit Wave Ball." Yusuke can't really handle that much power, and he suffers horribly as he struggles to master it. Having passed her ultimate technique on to her student, Genkai meets her destiny calmly. The season ends with the first match of the Tournament finals: Team Urameshi vs. Team Toguro. The outcome isn't really in question, but getting there will be more than half the fun. This season of Yu Yu Hakusho feels a lot like Dragon Ball, as the heroes and villains punch each other out of the arena, through walls, etc. Like Goku, Yusuke relishes nothing so much as a good fight: he and Jin the Wind-Tamer are delighted to find a worthy opponent in each other. The combination of camaraderie, slapstick comedy and no-holds-barred combat will appeal strongly to adolescent boys. (Rated TV PG, suitable for ages 12 and older: violence, grotesque imagery, profanity, alcohol and tobacco use.) --Charles Solomon (29. Flowers of Blood, 30. Dragon of the Darkness Flame, 31.
