We know something about City Hunter

City Hunter is a manga series written and illustrated by Tsukasa Hojo, published in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1985 to 1991.

The series follows the exploits of Ryo Saeba, a "sweeper" who works to rid Tokyo of crime, and Kaori Makimura, a tomboyish girl who manages Ryo's business affairs. Their "City Hunter" business is an underground jack-of-all-trades operation, contacted by writing the letters "XYZ" on a blackboard at Shinjuku Station.

The manga was adapted into an animated television series by Sunrise Studios in 1987. The series lasted for 51 episodes, followed by two further seasons lasting a combined 114 episodes.

The City Hunter franchise spans four animated television series, three television specials, two original video animations, an animated feature film and a live-action Hong Kong film starring Jackie Chan. In 2001, Tsukasa Hojo started the Angel Heart, a City Hunter

Publication

The City Hunter manga ran for eight years in Shueisha's Shōnen Jump magazine from 1985 to 1992, producing about 35 collected volumes (it varies between editions).

In Japan, the first compiled City Hunter graphic novels were published under the Jump Comics imprint from 1986 to 1992, and totaled 35 volumes. The second edition was from Shueisha Editions, who published an 18 book version between 1996 and 1997. Bunch World published a 39 volume edition between 2001 & 2002. Most recently, Tokuma Comics published a "Complete Edition" of 32 books, each with bonus material between 2004 and early 2005.

The North American version of the manga, published by Gutsoon! Entertainment and serialized in Raijin Comics, is only available up to volume 5. The series has also been translated into Chinese, French, German, Italian,Vietnamese, and Spanish.

Anime
The manga was adapted into an animated television series by Sunrise Studios in 1987. The series lasted for 51 episodes, followed by two further seasons lasting a combined 114 episodes. A forth television series, City Hunter '91, premiered on April 28, 1991 and lasted 13 episodes.

Along with the four television series, the City Hunter animated franchise spans three television specials, two original video animations and one feature film.

Live Action Film
Main article: City Hunter (film)

In 1993, Golden Harvest produced a live action City Hunter film directed by Wong Jing and starring Jackie Chan.

Mr. Mumble (Meng bo) is another live action version of City Hunter. Despite the fact the names have been changed, this 1996 movie is considered to be a bit more faithful to the original material than the earlier film. Michael Chow plays Maang Boh (Mr. Mumble, the Cantonese version of Ryo) who takes on a job to guard Sharon (Pauline Suen), the daughter of a mafioso. The film also stars Francoise Yip as Yachi (Saeko), Jessica Hester as Lao Tang (Kaori) and Eric Kei as Chi (Umibozu).

Spin-off
Main article: Angel Heart (manga)

In 2001, Hojo started the Angel Heart manga. The series takes place in a universe parallel to City Hunter, where the character of Kaori Makimura is killed and her heart transplanted into Li Xiang Ying, Angel Heart's protagonist.
