"Hai, I admitt, when I first reviewed this dvd, I had no knowledge that they would cut Kuwabara's fight in half. They had orginally said that this dvd would contain four new episodes. Unlike Genkais Test though, I am happy to say that there are no errors what-so-ever on this dvd. Also, according to other reviews, the animation in the second episode are more cartoon like, though it makes Hiei look really cute! Do not read further if you wish the dvd to remain a surprise for you. Juri announces that even though Karasu is dead, her ten count had finished before Kurama managed to stand, so Karasu is the victor. With the Toguro team ahead with one point, Bui steps forward ready to fight. Hiei also enters the ring, telling Yusuke that he had wished to take Younger Toguro, but in respect for Genkai he would leave it to Yusuke. He takes off his bandages on his arm, and you see the Dragon Tatoo for the first time. Skipping tons of detail, including Hiei's Dragon of the Darkness Flame turning on him, Hiei wins the fight, falling unconcious for a 6 hour sleep. Kuwabara fights Elder Toguro and during this time period is shown the story about Genkai and Younger Toguro's past. The dvd ends with Kuwabara swearing to kill Younger Toguro..."
Round 2: Bui Vs Hiei!

"Once again, like Yoko Kurama and Poltergeist Report (the movie) I got this on a crappy subtitled and super cut (not violence, total time) version. I saw the best parts from what I've read in other reviews though!Hiei begins to fight with Bui, the samurai of the Togoro Team, and sees he can easily beat him. But Bui finally takes his armor, an item which doesn't protect himself but restricts his power! Hiei resorts to his most powerful attack: The Dragon of The Darkness Flame (I don't know how to spell the Japanese version for those who read my Inu Yasha review)! Another surprise! Hiei has his most powerful attack sent right back at him! The parts I saw were most visually impressive, including Hiei riding INSIDE the Dragon of the Darkness Flame's mouth. Hiei's final attack pretty much kills Bui and lets Yusuke's team advance to the next fight, Kuwabara vs. Elder (yet smaller...) Togoro."
This is one great DVD

"i have been a huge fan of Yu Yu Hakusho for a long time now and this is a must see addition to anyone's YYH collection! In true Yu Yu style the Dark tournament finals continue after the shocking techinicality that gave Toguro the first round point, and now it's pay back! In an effort to regain control and win their freedom hiei takes the stage facing off against the quite bohemeth bui and his unlimited axe supply! don't judge by size though because i this battle it's the 9ft. tall bui versus our favorite fire demon, and we all know when it comes to revene there is no fiercer warrior than hiei. in this heated battle the floor goes flying and the audience is feelingmost of the pain as the two hardened demons clash. In the end it is Bui's fearsome battleaura versus the power of the newly mastered drgon of the darkness flame. Bui manages to send the dragon back at hiei but don't count hiei out yet because he is about to reveal his newest talent. In the end after leveling half the stadium and causing major panic within the crowd Hiei wins and the score is tied. Now we have to count on Kuwabara to push our team in th e lead, ( heaven help the goodguys.)Can kuwabara manage to wi this fight or will he blow it as usual. Either way this show is chock full of the mayhem Yu yu fans love and and for any diehard Hieithere is a lot of great scenes with the cute little demon. i love Hiei!!!!!"

"In the episode Beneath Bui's Armor, a disturbing verdict is handed down for the 1st round (Kurama vs. Karasu). The Elder Toguro steps up to face the remaining members of Team Urameshi all at once, but the silent Bui steps up to fight instead. Hiei explains to Yusuke that he originally wanted to fight the Younger Toguro, but after what happened, Yusuke deserves that right. He decides that Bui will be enough to entertain him. Hiei is dominating the fight, and Bui knows this. Bui removes his armor, unlocking a great power. Hiei cannot stop this. He knows he will need more power. He unravels the bandage on his arm, ready to end the fight...In the episode Wielder of the Dragon, Hiei unleashes his ultimate attack, the Dragon of the Darkness Flame. Bui struggles to hold back the dragon. As he is losing, he remembers his loss to Toguro years ago. He does the unthinkable: he turns the dragon back on Hiei. With a look of shock and terror on his face, Hiei is swallowed by his own cursed creation...In the episode The Shadows of Elder Toguro, the Hiei vs. Bui fight draws to a close. Now, Kuwabara must fight the eerie Elder Toguro. In this fight, he learns the truth about Genkai. Blinded by rage, he attacks. To his horror, the Elder Toguro arises unharmed..."
