Houjou’s Shueisha-published City Hunter manga ran from 1985 to 1991, while two spin-offs from other manga artists began in 2017 and 2018 respectively. An anime TV series adaptation aired in 1987 and was followed by a few additional seasons, TV specials, and movies. The most recently released City Hunter anime movie was 2019’s City Hunter: Shinjuku Private Eyes

Coamix describes the manga as:

Ryo Saeba, a.k.a. City Hunter. A sweeper who fulfills all his client’s needs. He’ll do anything from bodyguarding to contract killing, but he’ll only take the job if a pretty woman is involved, or the client’s sincerity makes his heart tremble. Together with his partner Kaori Makimura, the kid sister of his late best friend, Ryo fights the evil haunting the shadows of the city!!
