A young Taiwanese assassin codenamed "Glass Heart" committed suicide by jumping off a building, and her heart was pierced by metal fence. Miraculously, her life was saved by heart transplantation. During her recovery she began to experience strange dreams, which lead her to Japan looking for the donor of her heart, who happens to be Kaori Makimura, former partner of City Hunter Ryo Saeba.

The author mentioned in the first tankoubon volume that Angel Heart only shares the same characters of City Hunter but not its continuation. The events are all parallel universe, therefore it has nothing to do with City Hunter. (Source: Wikipedia)

This series introduces new characters to the franchise that just absolutely fit.

This is an excellent series filled with drama, heart, action and fun. I am, without a doubt, biased towards this series.
Admittedly there are some parts of the series that are considered ...

This review is primarily for those who haven't watched this anime yet. These 50 episodes, after 01~14, are separated into small "arcs" containing 3~5 episodes that are derelict from each other.

To help you maximize your enjoyment, I give you a list of which episodes are good/bad. Which ones I think you must watch, and which ones you can but don't need to, and which ones I think you should not.

[++] Excellent: You should watch these. Satisfaction guaranteed:
Ep 01~14, Ep 32~41

[+] Moderate: You can safely check these out if feeling curious or have enough time. But lower your expectations. They are in no way perfect, so ...

Mixed Feelings
Similarly to Asian dramas Angel Heart is often times cheesy and overly dramatic but certain arcs were so heartwarming that I couldn't help but loving it regardless . The beginning is kind of rough but when the show started going I found myself loving the cast and the relatable themes it touches upon . In addition as someone that was looking for some semblance of closure after watching City Hunter I sorta kinda got it here but I wish it was a legit fifth season instead of a spin off . The reason I'm saying this is because it finds itself in a very peculiar ...
