Crunchyroll has announced that they will be adding TV specials, films, and sequels of the 1987 anime series City Hunter to their library.
Originally released in 1985 as a manga by Tsukasa Hojo, City Hunter is a crime thriller that spans 35 volumes over its six years. City Hunter follows private detective Ryo Saeba.
Ryo runs an underground problem-solving business eponymously called City Hunter, with his business partner Hideyuki Makimura. After Hideyuki’s murder, Ryo takes it on himself to care for Kaori, the younger sister of his business partner.
You can read the some of the synopses of new City Hunter content being added to Crunchyroll below (via Crunchyroll‘s official news blog, where a full list is available).
City Hunter ’91
It may not be over until the fat lady sings, but Ryo Saeba would rather make music with a beautiful woman. And mokkori is the sweetest music of all to City Hunter’s ears. At least until his partner, Kaori, strikes a sour note with her trusty 100-ton hammer. Then there are the various thugs, crooks and just plain not nice people that want to put a permanent end to Ryo’s life. How’s a guy supposed to get any satisfaction out of his work with all those distractions? The streets of Shinjuku have never been safer, or more deadly.
City Hunter: The Secret Service
James McGuire’s life is so dangerous he has to hire bodyguards for his secret service agents. It doesn’t help that his chief agent is actually his long-lost daughter. Luckily for him, Joe Saeba and his assistant Kaori are behind on the rent and need the work! Eighteen years ago, McGuire’s life was stolen from him and he was sentenced to rot in jail. But now he’s a free man and on his way to saving his country from tyranny. But a dark secret from his past threatens to destroy him and his lovely daughter Anna, who is now an agent with the Japanese secret service. Will he live to rescue his country? Will his resentful daughter learn to love him again? Will Joe finally get some action?
City Hunter: Million Dollar Conspiracy
When a mysterious (and gorgeous) stranger shows up needing protection, City Hunter’s partner leaps at the million-dollar offer. The price seems a little high, but a beautiful woman with a full purse is pretty hard to resist. And it appears the tall, blonde, and beautiful client isn’t above throwing in a little something extra to sweeten the deal. But before City Hunter can collect on his bonus of lacy lingerie and nights of passion, he’s got to endure some rather dangerous foreplay-think “a barrage of bullets and deadly, explosive-rigged toys.” There’s no time for playing around in City Hunter: Million Dollar Conspiracy
City Hunter and its related specials, films, and sequels are available to watch on Crunchyroll.
