Synopsis:

Ryo Saeba and Kaori Makumura are private detectives who make up the City Hunter team -- problem solvers who can be hired by writing 'xyz' in a certain train station. Ryo's uncanny accuracy with a gun is surpassed only by his lecherous tendencies, while Kaori provides the sideline support -- usually in the form of a 50,000 kg mallet to keep Ryo's ecchiness under control!

Great Teacher Onizuka

Great Teacher Onizuka

With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...

In both anime the protagonists appear to be perverted and silly most of the time, but in reality they have a serious and soft side when necessary. In GTO, when it's time for action Onizuka will do anything to protect his students, just like Ryo when it comes to his clients in City Hunter. If you loved one series the you will certainly love the other.

Nevo

If you watched City Hunter, you'd know how much Ryo would do anything for some Panties. Onizuka, a man who becomes a Teacher for the sake of looking at High School girls isn't so different. Both main characters are very perverted and silly however when it comes down to getting the job done, neither give up!

Minai99

Not only are the characters similar, but both shows are episodic in nature, and have  a very positive outlook on things. When the going gets tough, both protagonists manage to save the day with style, despite their ecchi inclinations.

Lupin III

Lupin III

Arsene Lupin the Third is the world’s most notorious thief, a master of disguise and an unashamed ladies man! Working alongside his partner-in-crime Jigen, the carefree Lupin, shoots, steals and flirts his way across the world while avoiding his ever-persistent nemesis, Inspector Zenigata. Whether he is trying to win a Grand Prix race, defeat an invincible magician or steal a set of precious playing cards from a millionaire, nothing is impossible for the great Lupin the Third.

stretch
The closest match for City Hunter that I can think of would be Lupin III. Both involve a colorful male main character who is often unable to control his lechery when it comes to women. Both characters are held in check by a particular woman--Kaori and Fujiko (actually, considering the way she manipulates Ryo, police detective Saeko Nogami is a lot like Fujiko!). Both shows are set in the present-day timeframe. Lupin is an out-and-out thief, but tends to rob people who deserve to be robbed. Ryo Saeba is a "sweeper", a sort of private detective/bodyguard/vigilante who, it might be said, enforces the law in an illegal manner. Both characters are reluctant to kill or seriously injure anyone. So the two have a lot in common. If you can't get enough City Hunter, try Lupin III!

Even though in 'Lupin the 3rd" the main protagonist is on the other side of the law as the hero in "City Hunter" there are many parallels between the series.In both series the heroes always try and help a person who has an immediate problem and in most cases it means killing them. Both heroes are cunning detectives and skillful sharp shooters. An obvious correlation is that both main protagonists are womanizers and get into trouble for being so. In both series the hero's main side kick is adept with firearms.The last obvious similarity is that even though the missions are usually of a serious nature, there is a fair bit of slapstick comedy in between the action.

MalteseFalcon

City Hunter and Lupin III have very similar main characters. Ryo and Lupin are both happy go lucky individuals that are continuously chasing after women. However, when it comes to business, they are at the top of their game, always seeing their mission through despite the odds.

If you enjoyed the madcap adventures of one of our heroes, you are likely to enjoy the antics of the other.

Cat's Eye

Cat's Eye

During the day, the three Katsugi sisters are the proud owners of the Cat's Eyes Café; but at night, Hitomi, Rui and Ai become the most wanted thieves in town! After sending a preliminary business card to the police, warning them of what they play to swipe next, the girls rob the most precious pieces of art from well-guarded museums and secured private collections. The sisters, however, do not steal for money; everything they steal belonged to their father. By collecting his items, the girls are hoping to find clues that will help explain his vanishing in 1945. However, on the other hand, the clumsy Inspector Toshio Utsumi is on a mission to stop the Katsugi sisters; what he didn’t plan for was the fact that that his fiancée is one of them...

Ran

City Hunter and Cat's Eye have very similar ambiances and graphical styles. Both feature a good dose of humor and cool action situations, are based on similar ways of building up the tension, and make you wonder each time how the characters are going to set themselves free of the booby traps they step into.

ohtoriakio

Both have similar styles, are from the same manga artist ad even feature a cross over episode. They are also both reliant on comedic situations and are episodic so you can view them both out of sequence and still enjoy the show.

Golden Boy

Golden Boy

Having recently dropped out of law school, where he had finished the graduation requirements but didn't actually graduate, Kintaro Oe is on a new self-driven quest for knowledge. His adventures will lead him to a variety of workplaces including a computer firm, noodle shop, and even an animation studio, where his seemingly perverse attitude always tends to get him into trouble with the opposite sex. The moral of the story? Study! Study! Study!

The similarities between the two main protagonists are quite striking: They are both very good at what they do and they are the biggest perverts ever to grace our screens! Their lechery makes for some very comedic moments and their love of women is matched by how competent they are and how they can eventually win the woman over without ever getting any 'mokkori'. If you like one you have to check out the other.

Nevo

The trail for 'Mokkori' never stops for Ryo and Kintaro. If you like all the pervert silliness that Ryo gets himself into, you will be very interested to watch Golden Boy, an anime based on one man, his bike, and his amazing skills as a womanizer.

Golgo 13 TV

Golgo 13 TV

Duke Tougou - otherwise known as Golgo 13; he's loved by the ladies, hated by his enemies, is enamored with firepower, and can take out a target from several kilometers away.

cerberus38

Both City Hunter and Golgo 13 feature protagonists who are the best at what they do, expert marksmen and tacticians, who take on a job and always see it through to the end. Both protagonists also share a love of women though City Hunter is unable to control his lusts. Both series are episodic in nature though Golgo 13 is much more serious, but if you liked one try out the other.

foxhead556

Both of the stories aren't that same and the characters dont share much similarities. But Duke and Ryo do share the same skill in being a great marksmen. If you are looking for another anime with epic shoot skills Golgo 13 or City hunter are just right. If i was to compare Ryo to Duke in terms of skill i would say they are pretty much on the same level.
