A city where crimes are always taking place, you are in danger, so what should you do? Call for Ryo Saeba, the City Hunter.

I am one of those who refuses the modernization given to a work that remains solid of this level, but I confess that it was very interesting see they dealing with the people of today, seeing how Ryo remains the same immature in various situations and falling even more on women. ... is a sweet nostalgia. I was happy to see the original voices in this show, some sounded a little dry, but it depended on the moments, even a stark difference read more

What a fun reunion full of fan-service ("the Professor" is here !) with every character apart from Saeko getting some action and the required humour. Each one is faithful to his old self, with maybe Kaori and Ryô who seemed rather childish a good chunk of the movie (I could mention Umibozû but it's a joke so...)
The modernization is everywhere (even running through the story in an interesting way) in this concept confronting the City Hunter to the "present world", with some exaggerations here & there (ex: a virtual visitors board?!).

The great musics from the series sound superior to the rest of an otherwise read more

As an anime comes from 1980s era, this remake really something you can not seen on everyday. Their art was something pretty better than your decent hystorical show lately. The City Hunter series on 20s centuries, quite fun watch, and even too nice rather other show on this original era. I mean, look that their motion. Their comical art and animation so rememberred as something come from my past. Yet, im born from the 90s. But this show was much cool than almost my entire cartoon thingy i ever seen. The quality too, to be rememberred as West country cartoon, ofc on USA or from read more

The only reason i am being biased on this review is because i have followed through with the entire series way-back. pays homage to the original anime bringing out prequels and side characters like the ones-(spoiler alert)- from the cats eye anime series, not to mention all the original soundtracks from the 80s, the animation is good quality the characters look the same but HD, i loved this series because its one of those anime's that has some serious messages undertoned by slapstick humor,its got everything i like from the old anime and is not over the top, you'd love it if you were bored read more
