Mokkori, mokkori, mokkori...

The legendary manga "City Hunter" gets its first Japanese live-action adaptation! Unflappable yet excitable, silly but cool, this notorious protagonist descends upon modern-day Shinjuku in Tokyo. The origin story of "City Hunter" begins now! Starring Ryohei Suzuki, this film follows the number one "sweeper" Ryo Saeba, who cleans up trouble in the underworld, on a thrilling, action-packed adventure in modern-day Shinjuku.

The series follows the exploits of Ryo Saeba, a "sweeper" who is always found chasing beautiful girls and a private detective who works to rid Tokyo of crime, along with his associate or partner, Hideyuki Makimura. Their "City Hunter" business is an underground jack-of-all-trades operation, contacted by writing the letters "XYZ" on a blackboard at Shinjuku Station.

One day, Hideyuki is murdered, and Ryo must take care of Hideyuki's sister, Kaori, a tomboy who becomes his new partner in the process. However, Kaori is very susceptible and jealous, often hitting Ryo with a giant hammer when he does something perverted. The story also follows the behind-the-scenes romance between Ryo and Kaori and the way they cooperate throughout each mission.

"City Hunter" starts streaming April 25, 2024, only on Netflix!
