The manga by Hunter x Hunter’s Yoshihiro Togashi follows 14-year-old delinquent Yusuke Urameshi, who dies after saving a child in a car accident. The Spirit World is surprised by his death and offers him a chance to come back as a “spirit detective” who is tasked with defeating demons. The manga inspired a TV anime, which became a classic. It was also very successful in the Philippines, where people know the series by the title, Ghost Fighter.
