Yu Yu Hakusho: The Golden Seal
Cast in order of appearance
The movie starts off with Botan flying through the sky calling for Yusuke. Yusuke and Kuwabara are fighting thugs on their summer vacation. Botan flies down and gathers both of them. They run off to the Spirit World and are told that Koemna has been kidnapped. George tells Yusuke, Kuwabara, Hiei, and Botan what happened. George shows them Koenma's vacation and kidnapping on his video camera. The giant demon who took Koenma demands King Enma's Golden Seal in exchange for Koenma's life. They have to bring the Seal to the Magma Valley by sundown. Whoever holds the Golden Seal controls the Spirit World. After this, Yusuke and Kuwabara start running and soon run into a sword wielding demon family. They beat up a few and continue running after huge rocks begin to fall everywhere. Koenma is being held captive by a giant demon and a little kid. Yusuke and Kuwabara come to a forest and get attacked by a Stone Tree Demon. They fight it until a flying demon comes along and takes the Golden Seal. Yusuke and Kuwabara get trapped in a cage. Kurama shows up and frees them while Hiei kills the flying demon. Yusuke and Kuwabara continue running with the Seal as Kurama and Hiei fight off the Tree Stone Demon and more of the Demon family. Yusuke, Kuwabara, and Botan run along a pathway as Yusuke and Kuwabara beat up some demons. Kuwabara uses his Spirit Sword as a vault to launch Yusuke into the Magma Valley. He gives the little kid, Koashura, the Seal and Koenma is freed. The giant then takes the Seal and throws the kid to the ground. Yusuke shoots a Spirit Gun blast at the giant only to have it reflected and shot back at him. The giant turns out to be a fugitive named Yasha. After a good beating, Yusuke shoots again but dodges the ricochet. It hits the wall, and liquid magma pours out onto Yasha. Kuwabara, Kurama, and Hiei show up. Yasha jumps at Yusuke who shoots him with the last of his energy. Yasha cannot reflect it because his reflector is melted shut due to the hardened magma, and he dies. Botan helps Yusuke and they get the seal back. They ask the kid what his purpose was, and he explains to them how Koenma was mean to him during Spirit World Kindergarten. A flashback begins. Koenma knocks over Koashura, crushes a gift he was preparing to give to a girl he liked named Kotennyo, and gives flowers to her. Koenma and the girl walk away as Koashura cries. Everyone yells at the Koashura for giving a stupid reason. It ends with Yusuke and Kuwabara sitting on a bench talking to Botan. Yusuke explains how his winning was just luck and runs away.
Yu Yu Hakusho: Poltergeist Report
Cast in order of appearance
The movie begins in the Spirit World where the River Styx is flooding due to rain. As the rain continues to fall, all of Spirit World is submerged with water. Koenma gives Botan an item to give to Yusuke before the water washes him away. As she flies through the storm, Botan is struck by lightning and sinks to the bottom, into the Living World and falls atop Yusuke's school terrace. Fortunately, Yusuke was skipping class and he catches her. She tells him to find Hinageshi before passing out. Yusuke asks Keiko to take Botan to Genkai's temple while he, along with Kuwabara, search for Hinageshi. On the way, they encounter demons attacking a girl. Yusuke and Kuwabara rescue her and she tells them that she is Hinageshi. They take her to Genkai's temple where the rest of the gang is gathered and Hinageshi tells everyone about a fourth world, the Nether World. She tells them how thousands of years ago, the Spirit World and Nether World fought over the control of the Human World. King Enma defeated the forces of the Nether World and sealed away the Power Sphere, the source of the Nether World's power. The Nether World's minions were banished to the darkness of space along with their king, Yakumo, but the evil in human souls who were also banished to space because of their crimes empowered Yakumo to return to the Human Realm and he decided to take over the Human World.
The flood in Spirit World was also his doing, and he now has to open five elemental sites on Earth to sever its connections to Spirit World and take it over as his own. Yusuke and the others split up to cover the five sites but they are all defeated by Yakumo's henchmen and the elemental sites are destroyed. Yusuke is defeated by Yakumo himself who searches Hinageshi for something. Seeing that she didn't have what he wanted, he leaves her before thrashing Yusuke once more. Kuwabara managed to defeat his enemy, Majari, who had the ability to copy his foes' techniques. He copies Kuwabara's Spirit Sword and fights him with it. Kuwabara is overpowered by Majari who prepares to finish him off. Kuwabara says that he had just developed a killer new technique and shoots out a shard of his spirit sword through the ground under Majari. Majari dodges it and Kuwabara expends all his spirit energy to form a sort of a large sword. Majari observes this and copies the technique and both their attacks clash.
The attacks cancel each other out and leaves the two fighters drained. Kuwabara thus gains the upper hand as fist fighting is his strength and he overpowers Majari but just as Hinageshi was about to secure the site, Yakumo destroys the elemental site with a projectile blast. Yakumo then heads out with his Jaganashi henchman, Raigo, to Genkai's temple to find Botan. He defeats Genkai and the Jaganashi slams Yukina on the wall. Yusuke tries to prevent them from taking Botan but he is defeated and Keiko, who was with him, gets hurt in the process. Next, we find out that the item that Botan had was the Power Sphere. Angry at his inability to protect Keiko and Botan, Yusuke takes it upon himself to defeat Yakumo and rescue Botan. Hiei joins the fray to avenge Yukina. Yusuke, Kuwabara, Kurama, Hinageshi, and Hiei set out to face Yakumo and get Botan back.
On the way, Kurama first faces one of Yakumo's servants who impersonates one of his deceased friends Kuronue. Kurama finds out about this when the imposter drops the pendant which Kuronue always carried and then proceeds to attack him from behind (which was something Kuronue would never do). On finding out about the impersonation and that henchman had tried to pervert the friendship between him and Kuronue, an enraged Kurama summons a whole forest of sharp-edged bamboo which pierces the imposter and kills him. After Kurama's victory, Hiei faces Raigo who has a real Jagan eye. Initially Kuwabara wanted to fight him as Raigo was the one who had hurt Yukina and Genkai, but Hiei steps in saying that he had expended all his strength while fighting Majari earlier and was not in a condition to fight this one as well (although the real reason was that he wanted to avenge Yukina himself).
The fight commences and Hiei falls under his foe's Jagan Eye ability which draws out the evil within his opponents, which causes Hiei to change into his enhanced/Jaganashi form (in which he fought Yusuke the first time) and unleash a wave of Black Dragons at Yusuke and the others. But as it turns out, Hiei never fell into the trap and turns all the Kokuryuha's against Raigo and kills him before falling asleep due the side effects of the technique. Next, they go after Yakumo who has started taking over the Human World. Yakumo takes the Power Sphere out of Botan's body although she tries to prevent it. Yusuke arrives and entrusts Botan to Hinageshi before entering into a heated battle with Yakumo. Yusuke is heavily outgunned and is easily knocked down by Yakumo.
As Yusuke recovers, Kuwabara takes over. Yakumo prepares to use the Living World as the Nether World, but Hinageshi tries to take the Power Sphere away from him, although to no avail. Hiei and Kurama try to attack Yakumo as well but they get knocked down by Yakumo (Hiei's sword even breaks on attacking Yakumo but it doesn't even scratch him). Yusuke manages to get back up and Hinagesi asks him whether the Power Sphere was safe. Yusuke, realizing there was only one way to defeat Yakumo, grabs the Power Sphere and turns it into Spirit energy, something which even King Enma couldn't do. Yusuke then combines his energy with Kuwabara, Kurama, and Hiei, and are surrounded by a golden aura (similar to the one displayed by Yusuke during his fight with Yomi) protecting them from Yakumo's attacks.
As Yakumo's barrage of attacks stops, Yusuke fires his Spirit Gun at him but he dodges it. Kurama then takes control of the stray bullet and it takes the form of his whip which turns around and lashes out at Yakumo. Finally, Kuwabara and Hiei use their strength and the Spirit Gun/Whip becomes engulfed in the Black Dragon's Flames which strikes and knocks out Yakumo and cancels the Nether World's power. It seemed as if Yakumo had been defeated, but he returns and has one last fight with Yusuke. Yusuke uses all of his spirit energy and shoots his Spirit Gun through the Power Sphere, destroying it, along with Yakumo. Everything in the Living World returns to normal. Koenma (through Spirit World), helps to revive the team after the battle (hinting that the Spirit World was restored after Yakumo's defeat) and Kuwabara asks if Yakumo was really defeated. Yusuke jokes that he might still be hiding among them but if he returned they would just give him another beating (although Kuwabara doesn't find that thought to be funny).
