The City Hunter Ryo Saeba has been without customers for four months, so his partner Kaori is understandably overjoyed when a customer finally contacts them. As the customer happens to be the striking Mega City TV newscaster Sayaka, Ryo has trouble containing his excitement too. But while it seems not even Kaori's wrath can dissuade Ryo from his lecherous antics, things take a more serious turn when they have to escape a seemingly endless stream of hired killers who come after them. And when Sayaka's employers set Ryo up as a kidnapper and killer, Ryo has no choice but to get to the bottom of this weird case!

“Vash, the Stampede” - worth 60 billion dollars to the one who can turn him in. Bounty hunters everywhere are on the lookout for this legendary gunman, not to mention insurance agents Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who are tasked with preventing any potential damage that this Vash can cause. But with 60 billion on his head, Vash is not an easy man to find.

Both this movie and Trigun have a number of similarities. The most obvious and most important similarity occurs between Ryo and Vash. Particularly, City Hunter: Death of the Vicious Criminal Ryo Saeba reminds me of the bodyguard episode near the start of the Trigun series. Ryo and Vash seem to be women chasers and somewhat childlike, but when the chips are down they are at the top of their game.

Basically if you liked this movie, you should give Trigun a shot. Conversely, if you liked Trigun (and specifically the bodyguard episode) you should definately check out the City Hunter: Death of the Vicious Criminal Ryo Saeba
