Yu Yu Hakusho
In the novel, Yuusuke Urameshi, a 14-year-old delinquent who faces a bleak future, literally throws himself in front of a car when he sees a young boy being struck by a moving vehicle. It is so out of character for him to make such a sacrifice that the authorities in the spirit world are not yet ready to let him pass on.
Yuusuke is given an opportunity to regain his life by Koenma, the heir to the spirit realm, by completing a series of tasks. A Spirit Detective, he is to stop evil influences on Earth under the guidance of Botan, the death god. His father is an ex-rival of Kazuma Kuwabara and a lot of demons who are criminals. He gathers these demons to help him on his journey. The two spend their time together training and battling enemies that threaten humanity’s existence.
