Anime DVD Review

And now something for the guys who like action! Created by Tsukasa Hojo, (who also created one of our favorite "unknown" classics, Catseye) City Hunter is a durable franchise, having had a series, which was killed, then two movies, and even a live action movie starring Jackie Chan.

Ryo Saeba: You can look macho in a pink jacket!Ryo Saeba is a bodyguard for hire, who can perform the typical anime superhero feats of dodging bullets and jumping over cars while simultaneously attempting to get into the pants of every woman he sees.

With a patent-able mix of James Bond-like action and slapstick humor (mostly revolving around his attempts to woo women and his partner Kaori's 'Yojimbo style' sledgehammers doing damage to his skull), City Hunter will have you glued you your seat, eyes fixed on the screen, while you aren't snorting Coca-Cola through your nose in hysterics.
