    They have a new OVA coming out soon. Dragon Ball, Rurouni Kenshin, and many other series have made comebacks across the world.

    What do you think the odds of YYH getting new material in the near future is?

    I wouldn't count on it, and personally I wouldn't be in favor of it to begin with. It ended just fine as it is and I don't want it to follow the same path as DB were it becomes just a marketing machine for SJ.

    Probably not with Togashi directly involved, even though YYH had a lot of potential. I think Togashi is mostly focused and concerned with HxH continuation.

    If a studio ever asks to do an anime project for YYH (perhaps a reboot, or just a spinoff), Togashi should totally greenlight it. The best thing we can do is support the new OVA, which looks really good.



    I still find it amazing that YYH finds itself into new Jump video games and new DVD/bluray/OVA releases.

    only if the funimation gets the dub crew back together, and decides to finally license poltergeist report

    i think YYH can have a resurge in popularity if that happens. but im not counting on a remake or a new series.

    wouldn't you like to see a YYH remake, like HxH had?

    i think it would be superb and the series popularity would ignite again, without a doubt

    I would not, because i think the original series is just fine and ended fine, unlike HxH, which is why it needed a remake in the first place.

    I am not a fan of remakes for the sake of remakes. They have to be highly anticipated or done for a franchise that didn't get its proper dues at the time. Like 666 Satan, or Psyren

    Yusuke....especially in the funimation version. Justin Cook elevates the character to a brand new level

    The only people that think Bleach is better than YYH have not seen YYH.

    if that was the case, every long running battle shounen ever created is a "bad DBZ clone", but i'd say tons of other series do things infinitely better than DB, and YYH is no exception
