Ryo Saeba works the streets of Tokyo as the City Hunter. He's a "sweeper" and with his sidekick Kaori Makimura, he keeps the city clean. People hire the City Hunter to solve their dangerous problems, which he does with a Colt Python. When Ryo's not working on a case, he's working on getting the ladies, and Kaori must keep him in check with her trusty 10 kg hammer.

This large, classic series consists of the adventures of Saeba Ryo, a sweeper or hired gun and his partner Kaori. Throughout the 140 episodes that make up the 4 seasons there are mainly 1-3 episode stories that intertwine very nicely. Also 3 movies that came out during the series' release and 3 specials that aired later. This anime is considered Action/Comedy but it has a lot of the entertainment value that you get from a Super Power type anime due to Ryo's implausible skill.

Saeba Ryo is not only an absolutely perfect marksman but by nature will hit on every beautiful woman he sees, which is read more

This masterpiece is truly one of a kind. I have no clue as to why this gem of the late 80's is barely known.

Story - 8
This anime follows the adventures of Japan's premier hired gun, Ryo Saeba. I gave the story a 9 as there is really no overarching story, or various story arcs. Instead, this series is rather episodic, with many single story episodes with a few 1-3 mini arcs spread throughout. This, however, can also be seen as a forte to this series, as this series isnt hindered by fillers, drawn out fights, repetition, or slower parts like read more

"I’m neither an ally of yours nor a tool of those police inspectors who think they are men of justice. I live as I think is right." Ryo Saeba, to a mafia leader.

This masterpiece is the adaption of City Hunter's manga, one of Weekly Shōnen Jump's best-selling series of all time, from the all-known popular hit by Hojo Tsukasa. City Hunter is the code name of the main character, Ryo Saeba, Tokyo's best sweeper, private detective and body guard, as well as the number one pervert in Japan.

No one can wield the .357 Colt Python Magnum the way Ryo Saeba does. He can shoot while read more

It had been a long time since I did not watch any "new" anime , I was just with DBSuper, and began to watch the whole series of Power Ranger. Finally, last month decided to look for something new to watch. I remembered some anime that caught my attention in a magazine that used to buy when I was younger, the "Ultra Jovem". So I went on the website Super Anime and searched for anime according to the year, more precisely 80 and 90, because honestly, the anime today has me filled eyes, even DBSuper, Sailor Moon Crystal (What even stopped watching), only Digimon Tri read more
