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.

This series has so marked me, that I have the complete series, except for a few movies I miss them, but I have all the seasons, and it's really worth, the replicas of Nicky and Mammoth (Opponent and Friend at a time, paradoxical, I know) are unforgettable, or even read more
