So far, the mangaka of City Hunter, Tsukasa Hojo has said nothing in response this, but the idea of him receiving a royalty in private is not out of the question. This is not the only time an American hip hop recording artist has paid homage to Japanese media. In 2007, Kanye West’s Stronger music video was directly inspired by the film, Akira, so this just means that anime and manga are becoming more mainstream, which is only a good thing.
