Kenji Kodama directed the film, and Yoichi Kato wrote the screenplay. Kumiko Takahashi designed the characters. The film was produced by Sunrise.

City Hunter: Shinjuku Private Eyes is described as:

Ryo Saeba is back, bringing the flavors of the 1980s to 2019. When gorgeous model Ai Shindo finds herself stalked by mysterious men, she comes to Ryo and his crew for protection. While he tries to hunt down the potential assassins (and maybe score a little nookie in the process), he ends up catching wind of a superweapon shipment landing in Shinjuku very soon. Could the two be connected? And with City Hunter on the case, will Tokyo survive the night? City Hunter: Shinjuku Private Eyes brings the beloved franchise into a new era, offering a non-stop ride of stunning action animation, gut-busting comedy, and enough cameos to make any fan squeal.

Pluto TV Adds the City Hunter 3 Anime

The Fandom Post is reporting that Tubi TV has added the City Hunter 3 anime to its catalog. The series is available in its original Japanese audio with English subtitles.

The story of the City Hunter franchise 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.
