Naturally, the announcement of a new film from the franchise will wreak havoc in the fandom.

Besides the debut and tagline, the visual also features the goofy yet skilled protagonist Ryo Saeba. As for Kaori, there’s no sign of her in the visual, but I’m sure the franchise will also reveal more promos featuring her.

Coming to the cast, Akira Kamiya and Kazue Ikura are returning to play Ryo and Kaori from the original series. Along with them, Harumi Ichiryūsai, Tesshō Genda, and Mami Koyama are coming back to voice Saeko Nogami, Umibozu, and Miki, respectively.

Not much is known about the plot except that it probably is the end of the series. In addition, this movie is also a sequel to the 2019 City Hunter Movie: Shinjuku Private Eyes anime film.

From the looks of it, the movie might adapt the manga’s final arc and end it all in an extravagant manner. Not to forget, the film also gives more serious vibes than goofy or comedic ones, which means it will have a lot of suspense and action.

Since the anime film will commemorate the series’ 35th anniversary, it is bound to be special.

The franchise will soon reveal more information regarding the plot and release date.
