City Hunter Wiki

Hideyuki Makimura (槇村 秀幸, Makimura Hideyuki) is a former police detective with a strong sense of justice, the best friend and previous partner of Ryo Saeba and the adoptive older brother of Kaori Makimura at the beginning of the series before he is murdered by gangsters.


Hideyuki is a handsome young man with neck-length black hair that has bangs hanging on the right side, dark-brown eyes and he wears severe myopia (a condition in which close objects appear clearly, but far ones don't) glasses.


Hideyuki is a mellow and reasonable man who appears as utterly bored and deadpan most of the times.

Hideyuki is the complete opposite of Ryo in character; he has a calm demeanor, he is shown to be a neat person, capable of doing household chores and he is a responsible person in regards to work who is also protective of his family. 


Hideyuki was the son of a cop who brought home a baby one day and his father told him that ”From today on, she’s your sister.” That sister was none other than Kaori and Hideyuki grew close with her.

After his fathers death, Hideyuki joined the police force where he has a strong sense of justice and he is a colleague of Saeko Nogami before he resigned due to an incident. After his resignation as a detective, he joined Ryo Saeba as a partner of City Hunter. Besides confirming the assignments, gathering information was also his job. Kaori takes over his role as Ryo's partner after he is murdered by the 'Union Teope' syndicate. In the anime, he was killed by a hired assassin sent by the 'Red Pegasus' drug syndicate, which is affiliated with the 'Union Teope'.

He had intended to tell Kaori the truth about their relationship and her identity on her twentieth birthday, but he was murdered by gangsters before he could do so and his dying request for Ryo is to take care of his sister.



Hideyuki's favorite car is the first generation Mazda Carol. In the anime, he drove a yellow Volkswagen.

Weapons & Transport[]

Hideyuki's favorite gun is the Colt Roman MK III.


Kaori Makimura[]

Kaori was Hideyuki's younger foster sister in reality since they shared no blood relations. He had intended to share the truth with her on her twentieth birthday, but wasn't able to carry it out in the end as he was murdered and his dying wish was to have Ryo Saeba take care of her.

His small revolver was left behind to Kaori as a momento. As a brother, he cares for her a great deal.

Saeko Nogami[]

Hideyuki and Saeko were colleagues in the police department.

Ryo Saeba[]

Ryo was Hideyuki's best friend and partner at the start of the series where he tries to keep his goofy and perverted partner in line.

After Hideyuki is murdered by gangsters, his dying request for Ryo was to take care of his sister Kaori Makimura.


  • Hideyuki's name is different in two different languages:
    • In Italy, his name is "Jeff Mancinelli".
    • In France, his name is "Tony Marconi".
  • This character had no given name initially and it was derived from a voice actor named Hideyuki Tanaka.
  • In Volume 29, Chapter 157, it shows that a male police officer named Hirotaka Kitao strongly resembles Hideyuki.
  • Hideyuki was a marginal character for most of his presence in the manga, but was the protagonist of the chapter where he was killed.
  • In the anime, Hideyuki's flashbacks are associated with an instrumental version of Bruce Hornsby's "The Way It Is". In the anime-only two-parter where Red Pegasus (a syndicate affiliated with the Union Teope in the anime) returns, the song is played in-universe and is revealed to be his favorite song.
