Yuu Yuu Hakusho Volume 18 Chapter 7
-> RTS Page for Yu Yu Hakusho 7
Getting there! Again, we're entering territory where you'll see little exchanges and expositions not seen in the manga, like just WHY Yomi caved when Kurama turned on him, as seen below. Enjoy!
Boxes: In the end, Yomi had to accept Yuusuke's proposal. The reasons were twofold - Kurama staged his revolt at almost
the exact moment Mukuro and her main forces heard of Yuusuke's idea.
Of course, Yomi could have killed Yuusuke, Kurama, and the other 6 by himself, but would have expended at LEAST one-third
of his energy to do so. Mukuro would have then taken advantage of his weakened state, and all would be lost. Yomi had no
Yomi: I left Mukuro's spy bugs alone to control what information she had...and now I'm paying for it.
Box: Mukuro's agreeing with Yuusuke and announcing the dissolution of her army just added insult to injury.
Yomi: Urameshi Yuusuke...
What a peculiar man.
Yomi: Not only does he take the risk of rejecting MY friendship, others join him because of it.
It was like wanted to fight on principle...I never would've expected it.
Box: In a mere 12 hours, news of Raizen's death and the dissolution of Yomi and Mukuro's nations had spread to the farthest
corners of the Demon World...
Box: ...As did word of the tournament that would affect everyone in it.

Guy 1: Man, no one's showing up.
It's been a week since they announced this tournament, and the only people are Mukuro and a few of her guys.
Guy 2: Well, yeah, the only real fight's gonna be between Mukuro and Yomi-sama.
Anyone else who joins is an idiot with a death wish.
Everyone's waiting to see whether Mukuro or Yomi-sama prevails...
they don't wanna risk pissing either one of them off.
Boxes: Yomi quickly proclaimed the was recruiting fighters in Gandara, and formally dissolved his nation.
Many other countries he had conquered still resented Yomi, but no one held such a grudge that they entered to oppose him.
Nearly everyone in the Demon World was terrified of Yomi's and Mukuro's powers.
Yomi: I DO believe that you simply wanted to "slug things out", Urameshi Yuusuke...but in the end, this, too, is all about
Box: Yomi agreed to enter on the condition that the tournament not take place until 100 days after the announcement and the
dissolution of their nations - Yuusuke and Mukuro both agreed to this.
White text: Currently, there are 107 entrants. Yomi and 14 of his subordinates, Mukuro and her 77 soldiers (including
Hiei), and Yuusuke, Touou, Hokushin, Seizan and Nankai.
Only 93 days to go...
Youda: Yomi-sama...your son, Shura-sama,
SFX: BRUUUUMMMM BRUUUMMMM
Youda: Will awake in another two or three days.
SFX: BRUUUUMMMM BRUUUMMMM
Yomi: We have precious little time...his battle education is to begin the moment he opens his eyes.
What is Shura's total Demon Power now?
Youda: Over 80,000 points!
I can't even imagine what it will be when he's an adult.
Yomi: He's my secret weapon in all this.
If I can get Shura's power level over 500,000 by the tournament, there's no way I can lose.
You were right, Kurama...everything will depend on the No. 2 man.
Yuusuke: ...Seriously, quit staring at me.
Raizen left me in charge, so I'm doing things MY way!
Monk: It's too late to back out.
Hokushin: Our problem now is this tournament.
We four are comparatively weak, so we have to work together.
A stroke of bad luck may pit us against each other, so we should decide now who'll win.
Yuusuke: Hey, what the hell! You can't throw your fights, that's cheating!
Hokushin: It's STRATEGY.
You don't honestly think Mukuro and Yomi are actually going to give up everything they've won, do you?
They're sure to have their own plans and strategies for this tournament, too.
Yuusuke: ...Okay, yes, I trust Yomi about as far as I can throw him.
But Mukuro's taking it seriously.
Mukuro: Throw that an Raizen's grave for me.
And call him a "fuckhead" while you're there.
Monk: At any rate, we want to do what we can to help you win.
Hokushin: We do it of our own free will. You have nothing to complain about.
Yuusuke: Maaaaaaan, this isn't what I wanted...
You guys suck.
Enki: EXCUSE US!
Hokushin: What the-
All SFX: Yiiiiii

Yuusuke: Who're you guys?
Kokou: We heard Raizen died, so we hauled ass from way out in the countryside.
Enki: I'm Enki, and this is my wife, Kokou.
Hokushin: How do you two know our late king?
Enki: The three of us go way back...old fighting partners.
Of course, we fought AGAINST each other as much as we fought ALONGSIDE each other...We were tough, but nowhere on his
If Mukuro or Yomi had been around back then, they'd've wet their pants and ran home trying.
Kokou: Yeah, until that human bitch took his balls away!
Does he have any IDEA how pissed I got?! I'd been chasing him for years! *hic*
I got so desperate, I ended up with this bum...
Ahh well... *hic* he takes good care of me...
RAIZEN, YOU DICKHEEEEEAD!
Enki: Forgive her, she's been drinking...a LOT.
Kokou: WHY! It's not *hic* faaaaair ! I never even beat you ONCE!
YOU PROMISED! You said I could come fight you ANY TIME!
All SFX: *hic* WAAAAH
Enki: And she said she wouldn't cry...
When we all heard Razien'd given up fighting and eating humans,
everyone was so infuriated that we refused to patch things up.
The wind was take out of our sails, so to speak...eventually we gave up on fighting and settled down.
Who knew he was so concerned with the Demon World's future?
He kept it all to himself.
Visitors: EXCUSE US!
Yuusuke: Ack, again?
Enki: Ah, I figured they'd be coming by soon.
Would you mind seeing them in? They're more of Raizen's old fighting pals.
They all loved him very much.
I could tell you were his son straight away.
Yuusuke: You COULD?!
Enki: You're the spitting image of him...you probably don't see it yourself, though.
Yuusuke: The only interaction I had with Raizen this year was my ass interacting with his foot.
I can honestly say I've never considered him any kind of father.
But this makes me happy.
Really, really happy.
Enki: Okay everyone, enough jibber-jabbering.
I believe there was another reason we've all gathered here?
Kokou: Hey, Raizen's kid! We're entering the tournament, too!
If we end up fighting, I won't pull any punches, either. Don't blame me if you get slaughtered!
Same goes for you, babe. I'll hit you with everything I've got!
Enki: Good! Love and war are two completely different things, after all!
Let's work out all this grief for Raizen with a wild-ass tournament!
Someone: It's been a while since we've done any fighting.
Let's charge up our full power and knock off the rust!
Yuusuke: Holy shit!
Hahahaha! Holy SHIT!
Youda: It's coming from Raizen's country! Multiple sources!
The needle has snapped off, the power level is incalculable!
Yomi: Th-this is impossible! Each individual one is as strong as me...maybe more!
I never planned for this...How could anyone be this strong and not be trying to seize power?!
And yet why...why do I feel excited?! Yomi...is your old blood being stirred again?
Are you seriously considering abandoning strategy to test your own individual might?!
Yomi: Shura...you feel the same way too, don't you?
Youda, you're relieved of your duties. Do as you will.
There's no longer any way to know who'll win.
Youda: Y-...you're don't mean...
You're actually going to give up your nation and enter the tournament?!
Yomi: I choose to walk the fool's path, too.
