So I just wanted to put up a post of the first anime I ever watched back in the 90's, Yu Yu Hakusho! This show started me in on one is now one of my favorite things. Anime.
Now as you can see, Hiei is my personal favorite from this show. You may start seeing a pattern to all the characters from each anime that I've chosen over the years. Kinda like myself when I play beer pong, some call it "cocky" or "arrogant".. but if you can back up what you say, it's just self confidence. and thats something Hiei and Vegeta are loaded with. :) Thats what I really love in personalities, be a bad ass and know you are.
Now for a little bit about him. He is kinda of a strange case being a Fire Demon but born from an Ice Maiden. (I think are similar to Amazon's in the way they keep females and toss out males.) Hence why Hiei grew up surviving on his own in the wilds. Have to hand it to him, to be able to survive and train himself up like that is quite commendable.
Now when he and his twin sister were born, their mother shed two "Hirui Seki" tears that turn into a crystals and given to each child. That was the one thing that basicly chilled him out over the years and kept him at peace.. when he wasn't completely thrashing other demons/people/animals or what not of course. Well after he got older he decided to go back and get revenge on the Ice Maidens for kicking him to the curb and ended up loosing his Hirui Seki in battle. Only reason I felt the need to mention all that is because he ends up getting his Jagan Eye (third eye) implanted to try and find the crystal. Unfortunately even though the eye gives him a bunch of powers including Hypnosis, Telepathy and Clairvoyance he was unable to locate it.
The Eye also allows him to transform into whats called Jaganshi form (meaning evil eye expert). This form greatly increased Hiei's strength and speed, not to mention allowing him to paralyze his opponent. Unfortunately the greatest weakness is the eyes can be blinded, and in which case do nothing to improve on his skills.
Aside from his rediculas speed, sword skills and eye. He also attained Dragon of Darkness Flames.. (forgive me for using the english translation here, don't remember what it was originally). He basicly uses his demon energy to summon black flames from Demon World and create a dragon from them which can be a directed attack and distroys anything it tounches. Sounds a bit like Sasuke's Amaterasu you say? Well thats because Sasuke him self along with a lot of his attacks and style are based on Hiei. Odd how much I like Hiei and not such a big fan of Sasuke though, guess cause Sasuke is a poser and Hiei was doing it all before it was "cool". haha
So those are probably his most notably known ability, he has others still and some of them even more powerful if you can believe it. I'm going to end this here, but I hope this was enjoyable enough and doesn't have many if any mistakes on information. Hoping to get some nostalgia kicking in you folks. :) I'd love to see some comments of who each of your favorite characters from Yu Yu Hakusho and why you like them. If you made it this far you either really enjoyed this show or just really like reading. sorry its so long. haha
