If you want to call Ryô, write "XYZ" at Shinjuku Hall...
25 July 2006 | by (Lutry, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Ryô Saeba (Nicky Larson in the French version), AKA City Hunter, a great killer, detective, bodyguard, and so on. In one word, a great sweeper. But he's not the perfect hero, he has faults too, and I like that. Kaori (Laura Marconi), Ryô's partner, with his big hammer which stops Ryô when he "attacks" a woman. Saeko Nogami (Hélène), a beautiful police inspector. Umibozu (l'Eléphant, Mammouth), a sweeper, Ryô's friend, they always fight against each other. To sum up, some great characters for a fantastic story ! First, it's a great comic by the wonderful Tsukasa Hojo (Cat's Eye, Family Compo, Angel Heart, ...), the best author of manga ever. The anime is good, but a bit censored in the French version (it takes place in a children's TV program). It's a pity...
