"This DVD contains two short theatrical movies from the "Ninku" anime series and the "Yu Yu Hakusho" anime series. "Ninku" is about three Ninku (ninja-like) warriors: Fusuke (the bug-eyed boy), Aicho, and Toji. Also part of the group is Toji's sister Rihoko, played by the excellent Japanese seiyuu Hayashibara Megumi. Thier biplane crashes and when the go to apply for bodyguard jobs in the nearby town, they discover a group of imposters has taken their name. In "Yu Yu Hakusho", Koenma-sama (Lord Koenma) has been kidnapped and the randsom demand is the Golden Seal of Enma-sama (King Enma). Botan enlists the help of Yuske and Kuwabara and they are soon joined by the rest of their team -- Hiei and Kurama. Now they must rescue Koenma-sama and keep the Golden Seal out of the enemy's hands.Since this was not done by FUNimation, the English dub cast of "Yu Yu Hakusho" is different. Not only that, but the English script is such that the characters, especially Hiei, come off different from how they are in the Japanese version. The subtitles for both movies are very readable which is good. No honorifics are used and the Ninku subtitles are especially suspect in spots. The Japanese audio for "Yu Yu Hakusho" is just awful. It was done in *MONO* for crying out loud! What is that about? There was no excuse for this on the DVD.Bottom line: Two fluff movies which are little more than slightly longer "filler" TV episodes. If you are a fan of either series, you'll want to check this out for fun. Otherwise, don't break your neck trying to add it to your collection."

"Picked this title up at my friendly pawnshop. Even then it was probably overpriced. My kids, who are huge YYH fans were bummed - especially by the voice-overs and the 30 minute length. Still, it was fun griping about the changes.

The Ninku movie is also about 30 minutes, but even worse quality. Not sure we will watch it more than once. Looks like the same animators and voice overs from Zatchbell.

Suggestion: Buy used and realize you are getting an hour or less of product!!! Otherwise, enjoy :)"
So Awful It's Funny

"Okay, after reading several reviews, I decided to buy this anyway for a few laughs. Boy did I get my moneys worth! It was so incredibly BAD that I was first cringing in horror before I started laughing. The characters, especially Hiei, were so screwed up and the voice dubbing was so unfamiliar that in the end it had me laughing.

Now, I'm a die hard yyh fan, but I give it high marks just because it was so much fun to watch. Put me in a good mood for the rest of the day. If you arent pressed for cash and up for a few laughs i'd definitely suggest buying for th he11 of it."
