Both mangas are similar in the way that each "missions" are acceted only/mostly if the victim is a girl. Both main characters are womanizer, but if Clamp Gakuen Tanteidan targets a young public, City Huner targets an older public (teenagers/young adults).
Both are pretty long manga created in the 80’s by Tsukasa Hojo, and share the same genres (action, comedy, police, romance).
While City Hunter revolves around a detective’s life style, Cat’s Eye is about thieves.
Since Saru Lock's story consists of its titular lead repeatedly saving well-drawn, busty ladies (and never getting laid) in the hope of sleeping with them, how can I not compare the two? Ritsuko doesn't have Kaori's hammer from City Hunter but it's already been made obvious that, despite Saru's perverted failings, he's destined to only get it on with the girl closest to him.
Saru's a virgin/midget/not hunky, unlike Ryo, but if anything that makes Saru Lock more enjoyable. It gets boring following the antics of a Superman after awhile, and Saru's room for growth makes the action exciting and his development more interesting.
Definitely recommended to those into Onizuka-esque pervy heroes.
