One of the best characters on the show, probably for the wrong reasons, Kuwabara was quite the character.
When the series starts, he always wants to pick a fight with Yusuke.
And he’s probably lost more than 100 fights with him.
They start to become friends and what do they do? Fight in tournaments and hunt demons.
Instead of a spirit gun, he gets a spirit sword.
While he’s actually a decent fighter, the story always made him get into situations where he’d be seriously outmatched.
I was often surprised when he survived.
Every time I watch the series, I always forget that he was in love with Botan at first.
But he forgets all about her once Yukina gets into the picture.
The dark tournament for him was a lot of losses.
If he technically didn’t lose, he was either beaten or embarrassed.
Except this moment, that was really awesome.
Then he goes to embarrassing himself again.
I enjoyed his match with Elder Toguro, though his opponent faked losing to increase his team’s odds on gambling.
After the dark tournament, he gets a inter-dimensional sword.
And gets kidnapped by Shinobu Sensui because the sword can cut open a barrier keeping the extremely powerful demons from getting to the Earth.
And the moron uses it to avenge Yusuke while theoretically dooming the Earth.
Everything worked out, but he didn’t really like when Yusuke embraced his demon lineage.
He’s a minor character in the last saga as he didn’t belong in demon world. So he decides to become good at school.
