City Hunter (シティーハンター) is a hardboiled manga series written and illustrated by Tsukasa Hojo and published by Shueisha in the Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1985 to 1991. The manga was adapted into an animated television series by Sunrise Studios in 1987. The City Hunter franchise spans four animated television series, three television specials, two original video animations(OVAs), an animated feature film, a live-action Hong Kong film starring Jackie Chan and a Korean live action TV drama.

In 2001, Tsukasa Hojo started a new manga series Angel Heart. The author mentioned in the first tankoubon volume that Angel Heart shares the same characters with City Hunter but not its continuity, so therefore, takes place in a parallel universe.
