Franchising City Hunter was asleep late with relatively little to keep the property alive apart from several live-action adaptations developed worldwide. Some episodes can be quite dark; some others can be quite happy. When you look at City Hunter, in general, you realize that Ryo and Kaori live in a quiet, dark environment.
Many times they were quite close to being killed, and in the anime, it sometimes feels like both of them will never find real peace/healthy life ever. It is well reflected in “Angel Heart” which initially was intended to be the next part of City Hunter. In Angel Heart, Kaori is dead, but her heart was transplanted into another woman.
So her “soul and mind” lives in her. This is quite sad, as little before she died Ryo proposed to her. Some City Hunter fans do not like Angel Heart, as to them it does not have quite the same atmosphere. Angel Heart is even darker than City Hunter.
Even though City Hunter can be quite dark, there are quite a few filler episodes which can be quite happy. Also, Ryo and Kaori’s sense of humour makes the anime quite funny actually.
