The official Twitter account and homepage for the City Hunter movie franchise has been updated with the news that a new movie will be produced to celebrate the TV anime adaptation’s 35th anniversary. The first episode of the City Hunter anime premiered in Japan on April 8, 1987.
City Hunter is described as:
This “sweeper” keeps the scum off the streets of Shinjuku…
Ryo Saeba, the legendary City Hunter, is a first-class sweeper for hire, taking on jobs from protecting beautiful women to taking out bad guys permanently. He can be a private detective or hitman, whatever the case calls for, and it often requires the use of his superhuman marksmanship.
But even so, Ryo can’t do it alone. His partner is Kaori Makimura the younger sister of his murdered best friend. Kaori serves as his assistant, while also protecting their attractive clients from Ryo’s “mokkori” advances with her trusty supply of 100-ton hammers. Though they always appear to be at each other’s throats, the partners trust each other implicitly when the chips are down, and together they’ve solved various tough cases.
