  1. Please do you know whats happening with city hunter after 137 into English?

    • we cannot contact the translator responsible for this manga, and our typesetter is on a year long trip abroad. I’m afraid city hunter will be on hiatus until further notice.

      • can you just contact another translator? or translate from the italian version(i aguess is easier than japanese)? Thanks to replay us!

      • isn’t easier to find someone to translate the italian city hunters mangas? thanks!

      • the thing is, i barely have enough time to keep up with the 2 ongoing projects right now, even if we get more translations, i won’t be able to typeset them. Though if another group is willing to take the project, i would happily hand it over if their quality is passable.

  2. Hi-Does anyone please know whats happening with angel heart and city hunter into english. There is a large fanbase for it.

  3. Thank you ultimateking50 for the reply.Is it the same with Angel Heart after 201?

  4. i know you guys are busy, but when do you will be able to continue City Hunter manga translation? sorry, i’m really a big fan but i can’t find anywhere in english.

  5. Hi Henriquebach. I feel the same. Also the same thing is happening with Angel Heart. It stops in English at 201. Whereas City Hunter stops at 136. It came out in the 80’S! I think we’re going to have to do something ourselves. maybe if we pool money with a lot of fans and pay someone to translate? That s my idea. I don’t think its going to get sorted otherwise. I have contacted so many people over this.

  6. well, not just translate, edit the manga too. if you find people who would like to pay to someone translate, contact me via skype: henrique.bach

  7. would love to contribute with what i can.

  8. Leave with me. maybe we can both look around. I know of lot of a lot of people on various sites who feel the same.

  9. wiil do-do you like angel heart-that is ongoing and has saeba san in it!

  10. no, i dont like =/

  11. OK-like i said I’ll ask around for people who want to continue City Hunter.

  12. This is for anyone-how do I change my name/username on this site? It keeps going to wordpress, then says I don’t have an account. Even though it shows I do?!? Pls help

  13. Hi Henrique
    Not great news. I’ve found a company that will do it. However we re looking at around Ā£400 for each issue. We would need to send them the raw files first too. That is a last emergency option for now. Also no-one else has contacted me regarding the fan pool. What i’ll try to do now is contact different scanlators/translators who already do manga and ask if they can take it on. Or enquire if we could pay something. Not Ā£400 obviously. if this fails I will get a japanese penfriend(which i’ve wanted to do for some time-I would love to go Tokyo!) and i will ask if i can pay them to do it. It would be worthwhile for a normal person forn little extra money. Leave with me-hope your ok-and can’t believe you dont like angel heart ryo is one of the main characters plus its ongoing. I’m getting into Coppelion at moment-what else do you like? (PS I would pay most of the money cos i want angel heart doing-i won’t ask you to go halfs so dont worry.)

    • well i really cant give alot, im just College student, i dont work for now. pls contact me via skype henrique.bach

  14. Don’t worry. I’m not on skpe yet. When am will contact you.

  15. ok šŸ™‚

  16. Well it’s great that you guys translated as much as you did.
    Too bad about the translator missing.
    Has anyone asked HappyScans about a maybe helping out with the rest of volume 26 and the last 9 volumes?
    I mention them since they are doing Cat’s Eye right now which Hojo Tsukasa made before City Hunter.

  17. Glad to see other people who’re still looking for a full version of City Hunter in English.
    I did spend a lot of time looking for them but find nothing in the end.
    However since I am French, I started to read them in French after chapter 137
    Maybe I can help with the translation

  18. Hi, glad to know we’re not only ones. I’m hitting a lot of dead ends in my search. also Angel heart 201+ is untranslated. Phoeonickh, do you have a webiste/page I can go for the french city hunter. I did french in school so guess I could brush up!

    • Hey, I don’t exactly remember where I found it but just google “telecharger scan city hunter” and you’ll find what you want! There’s also a french torrent I think

  19. Thank you Phoneick. Again a big thank you to everyone who did City hunter up to this point.

  20. ultimateking50, will you move forward with the translation? specialy now that city hunter xyz edition has been release in japan with a new animation in the end of the year.

  21. Wow henrique Bach I’m gonna look that up, where did you find out about that?

  22. nachiwiatdamist

    Hi there! It’s been a long time since you published the last chapter. why didn’t you continue city hunter’s translation??

  23. Hi there! Thank you for all your hard work and contribution to the non-japanese anime/manga community šŸ˜€

    So I am a City Hunter fan, and there are loads others, but I can’t find the scans for the chapters since after where you left. So I just wanted to request you to please take that back up if you have the time, or whenever you get the time. I, and many many others, will be really really thankful.

  24. Please, make it happen.

  25. Ch 138 when
