  • City Hunter ’91 (TV series)

The four City Hunter series were originally released in the US on DVD by ADV Films. Here’s how they described season 1:

Meet Ryo Seaba: ladies’ man, troubleshooter and expert marksman. When you need more help than the police can provide, he’s the solution. He’s the City Hunter, and if he can’t solve your problem, no one can. Welcome to the world of City Hunter where freelance troubleshooter Ryo Saeba works to keep the streets of Shinjuku safe. When calling the police just won’t do, leave an “XYZ” message on the board at Shinjuku Station and the City Hunter will respond to your plea for help, especially if you happen to be a beautiful woman!
