Ryo Saeba is a "sweeper" in the city of Tokyo. His works as a trouble shooter, cleaning the streets of vermin, and helping out desperate people. Sometimes he's a bodyguard, sometimes he's an assassin, whatever Ryo does he does it well. In fact his only flaw is his hormones - he loves the ladies and sometimes turns into an idiot when he's near them. Thankfully he's got people like his partner Kaori Makimura to keep him in check.

Finally! The whole manga was translated to English, which is something that I have been waiting for so long!
I'll make this review short and tell my thoughts clearly.

City Hunter is a legendary series. It's one of those hidden gems that I have found during all these years of my fascination to anime. I marathoned the whole anime, and I think it's the funniest anime I've ever watched along Saiki Kusuo. After finishing the anime I gave it straight up 10 (masterpiece) rating. However I don't think it was because of the story. The story is quite monotonous, simply because of one thing -- it ...

I'd like it more if it kept the same seriousness that had in the beginning. At some point it became too childish for my liking, not to mention that half of the manga is about the same shit = helping some random bitch only to get her fall for Ryo moments later. When you keep doing that over and over again well... You'll get sick of it. The best word to describe this series is frivolousness, very little on this manga had any real profound feeling. The thing that bothered me the most is that, I don't understand why this manga isn't under a Shojo ...
