YuYu Hakusho Wiki

Akarenjya (阿架連邪?) was the team leader of Team Gorenja. He was killed by Elder Toguro in the semi-finals of the Dark Tournament.

He is voiced by Mitsuru Miyamoto in the Japanese version and by Robert McCollum in the English dub.


In the anime he has pale skin, spiky black hair and a scar on his left eye, while in the manga his hair is not spiky and he does not have a scar on his face. He wears white pants and a white long sleeve shirt with a red cape like garment over his shirt. He also has a belt with a red R on it. In the manga, he looks more like a human than an apparition, due to his more rounded ears.


Akarenjya hates it when people look down on him. He cares for his team, and would rather die than beg for his life. He also appears to be an honorable fighter. He is very self confident and exudes this quality to which no doubt aided in his teams advancement to the semi-final round of the Dark Tournament.


Akarenjya was unfortunate enough to have to face Elder Toguro in the Dark Tournament semi-finals. When told by Elder Toguro to beg for his life Akarenjya did not, but rather threatened to get stronger and kill Elder Toguro if he didn't kill him. Elder Toguro informed him of how his brother would look at such a statement as honorable, and would offer Akarenjya a job in his gang. However, Elder Toguro impaled his skull with his extended index finger, proceeding to state how he hates keeping his promises.
