CITY HUNTER - Main Key Art and Main Trailer Debut!


The newly released trailer for City Hunter sets the stage for the eagerly awaited live-action adaptation of the legendary manga. Fans are treated to a glimpse of the budding bond between Ryo Saeba (Ryohei Suzuki) and Kaori Makimura (Misato Morita), whose friendship unexpectedly develops amid a whirlwind of adventure and danger.

After receiving a cryptic message, Ryo and Hideyuki, known as the “City Hunter”, set out to search for Kurumi, a famous cosplayer. When Hideyuki is tragically killed during the investigation, his sister Kaori demands answers about her brother’s untimely demise. The plot thickens as it’s revealed that the mysterious drug “Angel Dust” is at the heart of the violent incidents plaguing Shinjuku, and Kurumi is key to unlocking the truth behind it. This revelation sets Ryo and Kaori on a quest to uncover the truth shrouding Hideyuki’s death.

Tsukasa Hojo, the original author of the manga, had an early look at the film and was quick to praise it. “I really enjoyed the film and was impressed by how well it was done. This film shows the characters running around in Shinjuku and I think this is what the fans expect, giving them the thrills of watching it come alive. I encourage all fans of the original manga and anime to experience it for themselves. Even a quick peek before bed will leave you too captivated to sleep. I hope everyone enjoys it.”

Joining Suzuki and Morita in the cast are Masanobu Ando as Hideyuki Makimura, Ryo’s partner, and Fumino Kimura as Saeko Nogami, a beautiful detective who has a long history with Ryo.

City Hunter tells the story of Ryo Saeba, a top-level “sweeper” who cleans up trouble in the gritty underworld with his impressive athletic abilities, elite marksmanship and cool composure. His only weakness? He can’t resist beautiful women.

City Hunter premieres April 25, only on Netflix.
