A scan of the upcoming issue of Monthly Comic Zenon magazine, to be released May 18, revealed that manga City Hunter will be receiving a new OVA adaptation. It will be bundled with the release of the new version of the manga, City Hunter XYZ Edition, on July 18. This announcement was made to commemorate the 30th anniversary of City Hunter. The OVA will promote the new animation and cast members.

Written and illustrated by Tsukasa Hojo, City Hunter began serialization in Weekly Shounen Jump magazine in 1985 until 1992. Shueisha published 35 volumes of the manga.

The manga previously received four TV anime adaptations, an anime movie, OVA, and specials.

Pointless without the original voice actors. It was Akira Kamiya that made Saeba Ryo such a fun character.

Kamiya Akira is Ryo. You can't make City Hunter without Mr. Kamiya.

I didn't watch old City Hunter yet, but I do love Akira Kamiya.

Still, I think he's too old to voice someone as Ryo Saeba.

Woah such a classic. I finished its manga and anime years ago during my "I will watch every animage grand prix winners" campaign. Never thought it'll get a new ova. But as the others have already said, no Akira Kamiya no party

Oh man, I LOVED THIS SERIES. Damn, every anime was amazing. I really hope to see Kamiya Akira back. Even if it is one episode, it will be amazing, to see some more MOKKORI POWER :D.

hmmm, not too sure what to feel about this. The original series was decent sure, I just hope it can be an improvement on the original source in some way. That said, I hope there is a series of OVAs.
