In 1981 he started Cat’s Eye, showing his talent for drawing women, and became very active in the magazines published by Shueisha, and especially Weekly Shônen Jump. City Hunter began in 1985. It is Tsukasa HÔJÔ’s second great success, after Cat’s Eye, and the one that made him famous all over the world. He is successful not only in Japan but also in France where the animation adaptations, Cat’s Eyes and Nicky Larson, got very popular as soon as they started to be broadcast.

Later Tsukasa HÔJÔ took part in the creation of the magazine Weekly Comic Bunch (published by Shinchôsha–Coamix) in which he has been publishing a new series, Angel Heart, which goes on since then.
