The City Hunter franchise has been a major hit ever since its debut, and although it has released quite a few series, it is nowhere near its end. The womanizing mercenary, Ryo, will be back soon with a new adventure and a fresh arm candy.
The City Hunter franchise will receive a new anime movie in commemoration of its 35th anniversary. The release date is stated as “coming soon,” so it might premiere late this year or early 2023.
If you are a City Hunter fanatic, then I can guarantee the latest trailer will awaken nostalgia inside you. The teaser shows Ryo, who looks as handsome as ever, and it is accompanied by the original City Hunter anime’s ending theme song, “Get Wild.”
The biggest news of all is that Ryo will be voiced once again by Akira Kamiya. Kamiya’s voice had brought life to this role. Because of him, the rare emotional moments in this series were portrayed so beautifully.
Shinjuku Private Eyes was the last City Hunter movie, and it was released in 2019. The franchise is so huge that it has been adapted into a Korean drama, a Hong Kong film, and whatnot. From spinoff manga to big-screen releases, the series has everything.
Ryo, with his flirty personality and incredibly picky choice of missions, has gained a name for himself. It’ll be fun to see him going on missions once again with the only girl who can keep him in line, Kaori.
Let’s see how many hits from Kaori’s hammer it takes to stop him from drooling all over his pretty clients this time.
