This upload contains scans of the official Raijin Comics release of City Hunter from the early 2000’s.
For those unaware, in the early 2000’s, before Viz released their shonen jump magazine in North America, there was another manga magazine publishing manga in North America called Raijin Comics. Raijin was a magazine published by Gutsoon! Entertainment and published series such as City Hunter, Fist of the Blue Sky, Baki, and Slam Dunk, among others. This publisher was originally spun off from the Japanese publisher coamix which itself was formed by the old school shonen jump legends tetsuo hara (fist of the north star) and tsukasa hojo (city hunter).
Raijin Comics ran for 47 issues before becoming defunct. This was scanned by the Raijin Comics Preservation Squad and we are trying to scan and preserve as much of Raijin/Gutsoon’s manga releases in North America as we can.

Ryo Saeba is a “sweeper” in the city of Tokyo. His works as a trouble shooter, cleaning the streets of vermin, and helping out desperate people. Sometimes he’s a bodyguard, sometimes he’s an assassin, whatever Ryo does he does it well. In fact his only flaw is his hormones – he loves the ladies and sometimes turns into an idiot when he’s near them. Thankfully he’s got people like his partner Kaori Makimura to keep him in check.
