List of characters in Journey to the Spirit World


May 19, 2022

The Ghostly Journey manga series created by Togashi Yoshihiro has a very large system of fictional characters. The first to mention is Urameshi Yūsuke, a typical bad student but actually not that bad. After dying and being reborn, he became a detective, deciphering unusual phenomena in the human world. Other prominent characters include Yusuke's family, schoolmates, friends, allies in his detective work as well as the supreme rulers of the Spirit World who gave him life. Yusuke begins his work in the Human World, but ends up having an adventure in the tunnel and eventually the tournament in the Demon World. Everywhere he went, he met new enemies as well as some new allies.


There are 4 main characters in the series: Urameshi Yūsuke, Kuwabara Kazuma, Hiei, and Kurama. Together they form the group Reikai Tantei. In season 2, Genkai joins the group, being the 5th member under the guise of Urameshi's group in the dark league. Botan is seen as the guide for Urameshi's group in the dark league.

Urameshi Yūsuke

Age: 14 Voiced by: Sasaki Nozomu Urameshi Yūsuke (浦飯 幽助, Urameshi Yūsuke) - known as the sum total of all the bad things of a schoolboy: from skipping school, falling asleep in class to fighting inside and outside of school (he also smokes and drinks alcohol).

Koenma allows Botan to be his guide so that he can pass the test before reincarnating, also to prove that he is a really good person. After passing the test, he also became Reikai Tantei to protect humans from the threat of demons. He is also extremely protective of his childhood girlfriend Keiko and avoids getting her into trouble with the Spirit World. Towards the end of the series, he proposes to Keiko and promises to return after going to the Demon World to find out about his background. His main attack is Reigun (霊丸, Reigan). Focus energy on the tip of the index finger and shoot it out like a bullet. He greatly enhanced the power of this weapon at the end of the story.

Kuwabara Kazuma

Voiced by: Chiba Shigeru Kazuma Kuwabara (桑原 和真, Kazuma Kuwabara) - is the second stubborn student of Sarayashiki School and always tries to take the "king" of Yusuke. He has special feelings for the ice demon Yukina (Hiei's younger sister). He is always loyal to his friends as well as to the members of the Reikai Tantei group. There's always been a special connection between his strength and his emotions (as can be seen when Yusuke was killed by Sensui, he was able to unleash his true power to wield the sword with the most powerful aura) . Despite being the main character, he does not appear in the final story. Kuwabara has a spiritual aura so strong that he can sense Yusuke after he dies. His ability is to create
