Discotek Media To Release ‘City Hunter’ Anime Films On Blu-Ray

The action-comedy anime ‘City Hunter’ is returning for a home video release from Discotek Media. The entertainment company is releasing the three spin-off films from the show as well as the TV specials released after the animated series concluded.

The first ‘City Hunter’ anime was made by Sunrise and directed by Kenji Kodama from 1985 to 1987. The films released after were titled ‘.357 Magnum’ (1989), ‘Bay City Wars’ (1990), and ‘Million Dollar Conspiracy’ (1990). The TV specials include ‘The Secret Service’ (1996), ‘Goodbye My Sweetheart’ (1997), and ‘Death of the Vicious Criminal Ryo Saeba’ (1999).

The Blu-Ray will include all of these movies and TV specials with both the original Japanese audio and the English dub. Discotek is set to release it on January 31, 2022, but it is available for pre-order on Right Stuf Anime’s store.

You can watch the trailer for ‘City Hunter: Shinjuku Private Eyes’ below:

Discotek describes ‘City Hunter’ as follows,

“Ryo Saeba, the legendary City Hunter, is a first-class sweeper for hire, taking on jobs from protecting beautiful women to taking out bad guys permanently. He can be a private detective or hitman, whatever the case calls for, and it often requires the use of his superhuman marksmanship. But even so, Ryo can’t do it alone. His partner is Kaori Makimura, the younger sister of his murdered best friend. Kaori serves as his assistant, while also protecting their attractive clients from Ryo’s “mokkori” advances with her trusty supply of 100 ton hammers. Though they always appear to be at each other’s throats, the partners trust each other implicitly when the chips are down, and together they’ve solved various tough cases.”

‘City Hunter’ is based on an action-comedy manga created by Tsukasa Hojo and published by Jump Comics from February 26, 1985 to November 19, 1991.
