On top of learning that Netflix‘s live-action version of Yu Yu Hakusho will be released in December 2023, fans of the anime series can now get a look at who will be playing the main protagonist, Yusuke Urameshi. The rumors of Dish’s TAKUMI — Takumi Kitamura — playing the role have just been confirmed, and the first official movie poster has also been revealed.

Kitamura told IGN, “The original work is a universal and unique masterpiece and a reason why Japan is so proud of its strong manga and anime culture. I am happy to share the masterpiece of Yu Yu Hakusho with the world and I hope we can create something people everywhere will enjoy.”

While one poster gives fans a look at Kitamura in the spirit detective’s signature green uniform, the other poster points to all four members of Team Urameshi — Yusuke, Hiei, Kurama, and Kuwabara — and their signature accouterments. Check out the full poster below.
