As part of a larger project I’m working on, I recently made an AMV of the 80’s action-comedy series City Hunter (it’s not publicly available at this time). I’d been curious about City Hunter for a while, and took to it while making the video. The show has a different new character the protagonists are helping every episode, always a beautiful young woman that the main character, Ryo Saeba, will hit on constantly throughout the episode. Like with every classic anime pervert, Kaori Makimura acts as his counter-measure, ready to smash him with a comedy hammer whenever she catches him going to far. There’s a handful of these one-off women I’m pretty interested in, and maybe I’ll revisit this series to draw them or some of the recurring characters again in the future.
In episode twelve of the original series, titled “Kids Get Special Treatment: A Beautiful Lady from a Dangerous Land”, the duo are protecting a young woman who’s travelling with a boy (they’re teacher/student). Throughout the episode, Ryo gets jealous that the boy (Takuya) is able to do things like take baths and share a bed with his teacher (Kawada Atsuko). Takuya’s just as perverted as Ryo, and eventually starts to grope and harass Ryo’s partner, Kaori. It’s all played for laughs, and Kaori has some pretty funny reactions to the boy just randomly grabbing her at different points.
The first panel of this comic is basically just a recreation of a scene from the episode, though Kaori’s reaction is a bit different here. I just found myself really drawn to these two as a straight shota pairing, and couldn’t settle on just one picture of them. I considered doing a series of pic, like I did with my “After the Cell Games” series, but since these characters aren’t as widely known as Gohan and Chi-Chi I thought it might be more prudent to do a single-page comic like we have here. This way I can include a bit more of a narrative, and panels like that first one, to give context to the sex.
I don’t much expect to draw Takuya again (although never say never), but I’d definitely like to do a bit more with Kaori down the road. I’m not sure what exactly it is, but I’m very fond of her. Now that I’m no longer working on that AMV, it’s possible my interest will fade and I’ll forget about her and the show, but if I can get out another pic or two before that happens I’d like to try.
