Ratings & Reviews
Ryo Saeba returns for more XYZ
by MKY -
I was surprised how good this movie turned out. After what seemed three decades since the original TV series ended, Sunrise and Aniplex made a good nostalgic effort here with "Shinjuku". Not only does Akira Kamiya return as Ryo, but Kazue Ikura as Kaori, and Tessho Genda as Umibozu. However, another voice actor portrays Saeko Nogami, but to be honest, I didn't realize this until the closing credits as its been awhile.
Great that every opening/closing song from the TV series is replayed in the movie. The animation of Kaori with her 100-ton hammer, Ryo's personality from a professional Sweeper to a perverted Mokkori chaser, to the outrageous gunplay of his .357 Magnum was just as I remembered from the old show. Easily 5 stars if your a City Hunter fan as I am. Also remember that the original City Hunter was only offered SUBTITLED by ADV back in the 90's, so don't expect Eastern Star to offer a dubbed version either.
