Netflix content acquisition director Kazutaka Sakamoto will executive produce the project, with Akira Morii producing for ROBOT, which also creates the “Alice in Borderland” live-action series.
The original “Yu Yu Hakusho” manga follows 14-year-old Yusuke Urameshi, who becomes a “Underworld Detective” after getting killed in a car accident and resurrected. But it seems that the age setting of Yusuke will change in the live-action series.
