City Hunter Live-Action Film Reveals New Teaser Trailer Previewing Ending Theme Song


The official Twitter account of Netflix Japan unveiled a teaser trailer for the upcoming City Hunter Live-Action Film on March 15, 2024. The teaser previews the film’s ending theme song “Get Wild Continual,” performed by rock music band TM Network.

Get Wild Continual is a new version of the anime’s very first ending theme song “Get Wild” performed by the same band.

TM Network expressed their enthusiasm on being able to be a part of the franchise again, stating, “The ending song for a story that is both hard-boiled and comical, and seems to go on and on without end. Anyway, we aimed to create an enchanting sound that makes Ryo Saeba seem both closer and farther away. And finally, with great anticipation, the world premiere through live-action adaptation! Who would have thought that TM NETWORK’s “Get Wild” would be there to accompany us as the ending theme song. We are grateful to everyone who has continued to nurture a song that always encourages us to take another step forward.

City Hunter Live-Action Film is set to release worldwide on Netflix on April 25, 2024.

City Hunter is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Tsukasa Hojo. It was serialized in Weekly Shōnen Jump from 1985 to 1991 and collected into 35 tankōbon volumes by its publisher Shueisha.

The manga was adapted into an anime television series by Sunrise Studios in 1987.

It also had a spin-off manga, Angel Heart, which in turn spawned its own anime television series and a live-action Japanese TV drama.
