Yu Yu Hakusho Season 1 revolves around the center of YuYu Hakusho. He is Yusuke Urameshi, a 14-year-old street brawler who, in an uncharacteristic act of generosity, pushes a younger boy out of the way of an oncoming car and is killed. When his spirit arrives in the Underworld, he is greeted by Botan, a lady who explains that she is the pilot of the River Styx and transports people there to be judged.

Botan tells Yusuke that his deed had even caught the Underworld off guard and that neither heaven nor hell had prepared a special place for him. In light of this, Koenma, the son of Underworld king Enma, offers Yusuke a chance to pass a series of tests and return to his body. Yusuke can achieve his goals thanks to the support of Keiko Yukimura and Kazuma Kuwabara. To investigate paranormal occurrences in the Human World, Koenma bestows the title “Underworld Detective upon Yusuke.”
