Yu Yu Hakusho is one of my favorite shows. But unfortunately I don't know the name of the creator of this series. Can anyone help me?
The original manga was written by Yoshihiro Togashi. He's also the author of Hunter x Hunter, among other less well-known series.
I read an interview in the US Shounen Jump where he talked about how Yu Yu Hakusho began with his idea for a series that would start with the protagonist dying, and how later portions were informed by his love of horror movies such as Dawn of the Dead.
He's married to Naoko Takeuchi, the author of the Sailor Moon manga.
