Chūji Mikasano, writer and script supervisor of the Tokyo Ghoul anime, is directing and scripting the stage play.

The first part of the play ran at Tokyo's Theater 1010, Osaka's Morinomiya Piloti Hall, Fukuoka's Momochi Palace, and Aichi's Ichinomiya Community Hall from August to September 2019.

Togashi (Hunter x Hunter) published the original Yu Yu Hakusho manga from 1990 to 1994. Viz Media began publishing the manga in its English edition of Shonen Jump in 2002, and it also released all 19 volumes in print. The manga follows 14-year-old delinquent Yusuke Urameshi, who dies after saving a child in a car accident. The Spirit World is surprised by his death and offers him a chance to come back as a "spirit detective" who is tasked with defeating demons.

A television anime adaptation ran from 1992 to 1995, and spawned two films and two original video anime (OVAs). Funimation released the television series and OVAs on home video in North America. Media Blasters and later Funimation released the first film, and Central Park Media released the second film. The television series ran on Adult Swim and later Toonami.

A new OVA debuted at a screening event in October 2018, and later shipped with the fourth part of the anime's 25th Anniversary Blu-ray Box collection in the same month. The new anime adapts the "Two Shot" bonus chapter from the manga's seventh volume, as well as the manga's penultimate chapter "All or Nothing."
