Introduction

Yu Yu Hakusho was a popular Japanese comic book series (known as a manga) that was then adapted into an equally popular animated series (known as an anime). Yu Yu Hakusho was originally written and illustrated by an artist named Yoshihiro Togashi. The series followed a fourteen year old teenager named Yusuke Urameshi. Yusuke was a high school delinquent - he was a troublemaker who got into fights and skipped classes on a regular basis. Underneath his tough exterior, however, Yusuke had a heart of gold. One fateful day, Yusuke sacrificed his life to save a young boy. Instead of being placed in Heaven or Hell, Yusuke was offered a chance to return to the world of the living. But Yusuke had to earn his way back by passing a series of tests.

Yu Yu Hakusho Inspired Dog Name Considerations

If you have a dog that needs a name, you should consider naming them after a character from Yu Yu Hakusho. The series has a very memorable cast of characters - individuals who could serve as the perfect namesake for a puppy. Yusuke Urameshi was the main character of the series - he was a tough guy with a heart of gold. If you have a dog that is a little rough around the edges, but who also has a good heart, then you might want to name them after Yusuke. 

Another interesting character that a dog owner could name their pet after is Kurama. Kurama was a demon that heavily resembled a fox. Kurama eventually joined Yusuke on his journey and proved himself to be an invaluable friend. Kurama's personality contrasted Yusuke's - Yusuke was a hothead who didn't have the best manners in the world. Kurama, on the other hand, was always cool and collected. Kurama also was very polite and respectful to people - he was a consummate gentleman even under the worst circumstances. If you have a dog that's very quiet and reserved, you should consider naming your pet after Kurama.
