Viral Yu Yu Hakusho Cosplay Shows Off Kurama's Live-Action Look

One surprisingly hilarious Yu Yu Hakusho cosplay is hyping up Kurama's live-action series debut! Yoshihiro Togashi's original manga series and follow up anime are widely celebrated as some of the most memorable action releases of all time, and that continues to this day even 30 years after its anime adaptation had its full premiere. Now the franchise is getting ready for the kind of comeback fans certainly were not expecting to see as there is currently a new live-action adaptation in the works with Netflix. This new series will debut new takes on the classic favorites, and that includes some very famous faces.

This, of course, means we'll get to see Kurama making his live-action debut as since the Spirit Detective arc of the series, Kurama had been one of the main quartet of heroes that fans saw over the course of the franchise. Kurama's one of the more unique fighters in the series overall, and now he's gotten an even more unique look thanks to artist Low Cost Cosplay on Instagram! This artist's take on Kurama sees them using chili peppers to recreate the fighter's famous locks. You can check it out below: 

Yu Yu Hakusho's new live-action adaptation is currently in the works with Netflix. A joint production between Shueisha, TOHO, and ROBOT, and scheduled to release worldwide in December 2023, Netflix begins to describe their new Yu Yu Hakusho series as such, "The manga revolves around Yusuke Urameshi, a junior high school student who spends his days getting into fights and dies in an accident while trying to protect a young child. As he grapples with the fact that he is looking down on his dead body, a woman named Botan, who calls herself a guide to the spirit world, relays to him the shocking truth: no one expected a delinquent like Yusuke to die performing an act of goodness, and there was no place for him in either heaven or hell."

The synopsis continues with, "Thus, Yusuke is given a chance to be revived, and after passing his trial, he becomes an Underworld Detective. From there, Yusuke becomes entwined in a mystery that envelopes the human, demon and spirit worlds. The spectacular adventure of Yusuke will now become a live action series on Netflix."
