Anyone know why and what happen to CITY HUNTER manga ( US version ). There only five volumes release in the US. What happen to the other 30 volumes. I got all five of the Raijin Comics release of the city hunter manga, but they stop publishing the rest of the series. Anyone out there know any subfan site that sell and do side note US translation for the manga series of city hunter please let me know by replying to this post.
Thanks..

Uh, manga is not anime or DVD, so this is off-topic here, but I'll bite...

Simply put, Gutsoon! aka Rajin went belly up. Unless someone bought what remained of them, you most likely won't seen any more City Hunter in English.

I have read all 35 volumes, and to be honest, it gets old pretty fast: Ryo tries to get laid, usually with Saeko; Kaori gets upset and hits him with mallets of different sizes; clients are always cuties who end up falling for Ryo.

The character design is a bit dated, although the artwork generally is pretty good (Rajin's attempt at censorship in volume 1 really cracked me up though).

I'm not aware of any (English) scanlations (and even if I am, I won't tell, at least not here).
