The wait is finally over! The newly released trailer for the highly anticipated live-action adaptation of the legendary manga, City Hunter, has arrived, setting the stage for an exhilarating and captivating cinematic experience. As fans, we are treated to a thrilling glimpse of the budding bond between Ryo Saeba, played by the talented Ryohei Suzuki, and Kaori Makimura, portrayed by the incredible Misato Morita. Their friendship unexpectedly develops amidst a whirlwind of adventure and danger, leaving us on the edge of our seats, craving for more.

‘City Hunter’ Trailer Debuts an Adrenaline-Packed, Exhilarating Entertainment Experience

The story kicks off when Ryo and Hideyuki, famously known as the “City Hunter,” receive a cryptic message that propels them to embark on a search for Kurumi, a renowned cosplayer. However, tragedy strikes when Hideyuki is tragically killed during the investigation, leaving his sister Kaori devastated and determined to uncover the truth behind her brother’s untimely demise. As the plot thickens, it is revealed that the violent incidents plaguing Shinjuku are intricately linked to a mysterious drug called “Angel Dust,” and it becomes evident that Kurumi holds the key to unraveling the dark secrets surrounding it. This revelation sets Ryo and Kaori on an action-packed quest to unveil the truth, shrouding Hideyuki’s death and bring justice to those responsible.

Tsukasa Hojo, the brilliant mind behind the original manga, had the opportunity to witness the film early on and was swift to shower it with praise. According to Hojo himself, “I really enjoyed the film and was impressed by how well it was executed. This adaptation truly brings the characters to life, with the backdrop of Shinjuku serving as the perfect canvas for their thrilling escapades. I strongly urge all fans of the original manga and anime to immerse themselves in this cinematic experience. Even a quick peek before bed will leave you irresistibly captivated, making it impossible to sleep. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I did.”

Adding to the already stellar cast, Suzuki and Morita are joined by Masanobu Ando portraying the role of Hideyuki Makimura, Ryo’s trusted partner. Ando’s performance brings depth to the character, highlighting the impact of Hideyuki’s tragic fate on the overall narrative. Additionally, Fumino Kimura showcases her talent as Saeko Nogami, a gorgeous detective who shares a profound history with Ryo. Kimura’s presence in the film adds an extra layer of intrigue, leaving audiences eagerly anticipating the complexities and dynamics of her relationship with Ryo.

At its core, City Hunter tells the thrilling story of Ryo Saeba, a top-level “sweeper” who fearlessly dives into the gritty underworld. Armed with remarkable athletic abilities, unrivaled marksmanship, and an unmatched cool composure, Ryo cleans up trouble wherever he goes. However, in a twist of fate, Ryo’s only weakness surfaces—he simply can’t resist beautiful women. This intriguing dynamic sets the stage for a gripping narrative filled with pulse-pounding action, unexpected twists, and emotional depth.

Fans, mark your calendars! City Hunter is set to premiere on April 25, exclusively on Netflix. The long-awaited live-action adaptation is bound to captivate, inspire, and transport you into a world of thrilling adventures and unbreakable bonds.

A message has arrived from Kid the Phantom Thief, that he will steal a Japanese sword belonging to the wealthy Onoe Family in Hakodate, Hokkaido. Conan and Heiji Hattori, who happened to be in Hakodate, are on the case to capture Kid. Onoe Family’s collections are associated with Toshizo Hijikata, a historic figure who perished in Hakodate. Why is Kid, who specializes in jewels, going after a Japanese sword?

Coincidentally the family lawyer of Onoe is found murdered in the warehouse district, apparently slaughtered by a Japanese sword. The suspect is an investor/arms dealer who is said to be after Onoe family’s hidden treasure.

The grandfather of Onoe family’s patriarch was deeply involved with the army industry during wartime, and it was rumored he hid some powerful weapon that could “change the course of war” somewhere in Hakodate. Is Kid after that weapon? Meanwhile, Heiji is trying to find a perfect viewpoint to declare his love to Kazuha…
