whyswhoswhats said: this is a yyh I would read and watch all the time. also, can keiko still date her

Yes, yes she can.

Spirit Detective Shizuru saving her super smart human girlfriend from baddies

Asking Botan to look over her (and Yukina during the Dark Tournament and Botan being all “oooo :3 you sooo like her” and Shizuru rolls her eyes but has a soft smile all the same

I have forever had an idea in the back about Kuwabara Shizuru being the one who became a spirit detective instead of Yusuke (though he and her brother are still there as members of the team)

It’s not developed at all besides thinking about how completely chill she would be (but like Yusuke, have that same fierce resolve to keep innocents safe) and also she and Kurama would have flirty banter during missions that never goes anywhere but they both enjoy it

Yusuke is all about unlocking his power with emotion (he is basically the Ma-Ti of the group) but Shizuru doesn’t have those huge breakthroughs as much as she steadily works and improves on her own and with Genkai. Everytime Hiei challenges her (“practice for when I finally kill you, detective”) she has a new trick to use against him

She makes Kuwabara train with her if he’s going to continue joining missions and she doesn’t pull any punches. It’s daunting for him but he’s proud of his awesome, world-saving sister

#if you watch yyh and didn’t like genkai we probably won’t get along

yeeesss

 (but hey guys how do you put tags in the body copy?)

Fuck Yeah, Controversial Characters!: In Defense of Keiko Yukimura (Yu Yu Hakusho)

fyeahcontroversialcharacters:

Poor Keiko. Poor, poor Keiko. Why do people hate you so much? It’s just not fair. Not fair at all. Don’t worry, I’m here and I will step up to the plate and defend you because, I actually like you. Let’s started, shall we?

Gets in the way of Yusuke/anyone else:

I hate this “reason” so…

For real I will fight anyone trashing on a YYH character.

yyhconfessions:

Confession: “I hate that the animators stop showing Atsuko after going into The Dark Tournament Saga.”
Sub: goregeousley

Well it probably wasn’t the animator who made that decision
But yeah, I kinda dug Atsuko and what we saw of her in the first episodes. I do like Shizuru’s expanded role in the Dark Tournament saga (especially the interactions she had with Sakyo) but I’d have loved to see more of her and her interacting with Yusuke.
At least she plays a larger role in the manga.

yyhconfessions:

Confession: “At random intervals during my day, I wonder where Botan came from and just how she got her job. It’s one of those things that I’m kind of glad Togashi left open-ended, because there’s lots of space for me to imagine. It’s fun not knowing!”
Sub: Anon

I would read the hell out of a Botan-centered story though.
She’s kinda the best

Confession: “I strongly dislike people who hate Kuwabara.”

Me too OP
Not necessarily people who dislike him for legit reasons (though I’m hard-pressed to conceive of reasons why you could hate this guy) but the people who are all “HE’S NOT PRETTY LIKE THE OTHER CHARACTERS BOO”
Luckily most of the people with attitude are 12 so I don’t interact with them.

yyhconfessions:

Confession: “As much I love Yu Yu Hakusho I hate how all of the heroes were male and there weren’t any female ones. So what are women not strong enough to fight demons too? The creator seems very sexist and how Kayko always needs to be saved too is woman-bashing. I hate Yu Yu Hakusho.”
Sub: Anon

Continuing…
I will concede that Keiko got in trouble several times in the show. And it is a bit eyeroll-worthy plotwise. But she did grow and become a pretty integral character.
Kuwabara had to be saved a bunch of times too though. It becomes less of a damsel convention and more of “if you hurt Yusuke’s friends he will get really pissed and destroy you” thing. It’s such a thing that Kuwabara literally fakes his own death just so Yusuke can take care of the Toguros.
Also re: Dark Tournament, Genkai in the arena and Shizuru in the sidelines kicked serious ass. Against demons. With YYH, we actually got a good range of female characters. We got to see that one of the former spirit detectives (Yusuke’s current job) was a woman.
So while it does have some of the tired damsel in distress cliches here and there, I would not say YYH is a sexist manga or anime. It’s boy-oriented, sure. It was serialized in Shounen Jump after all. But I think this OP is more trying to stir up wank then anything else.
