Yuusuke is a street-fighting, class-skipping juvenile delinquent. Killed in an unexpected act of kindness, he thwarts the spirit-world bureaucracy and ends up with a second chance at life... as infant prince of death Koenma's Spirit Detective!

Together they plow through demons, tournaments, hijinks, intense "martial arts" training, cross-dressers, dungeons, conspiracies and bad puns alike. At the end of the day, what's it all for? Kicking butt and saving the world, of course!
