Synopsis:

In the streets of Tokyo, the nightbreed walk as humans, preying on innocent lives and feasting on innocent blood. There is one man who would put a stop to this: Shido, the Night Walker, whose blood is made up of the very thing he aims to protect against: the nightbreed. Along with his co-worker Yayoi, a green fairy named Guni and a clever young secretary named Riho, Shido and his detective agency take cases that would be otherwise missed and forgotten, to seek out the nightbreed and send them from whence they came...

Hellsing

Hellsing

In present day England, a war is being fought. The average citizen does not notice, but vampires are running rampant among the populace, and it's up to the Hellsing organization to contain the bloodsucker threat, using even their own weapons against them. Alucard, a vampire himself, is the best agent the organization has to offer, answering only to Integra Hellsing herself. No one knows much about this mysterious figure fighting against the occult, but things starts to change after he “recruits” a new agent to the establishment...

As much as I hate to recommend Hellsing to anyone, it does pretty much try to copy the style of NightWalker... but does so poorly. But it does have it's decent moments and is worth a watch.

Mnemosyne

Mnemosyne
  • OVA (6 eps x 45 min)
  • 2008

Rin is a private investigator with an advantage: near immortality. Thanks to the spores of the Yggdrasill tree, both she and her assistant Mimi have lived many years longer than the average person. That isn’t to say that being immortal doesn't have its problems. With 'angels' wanting to devour them, the being Apos sending wave after wave of professional assassins to kill them, and constant hangovers from long nights of drinking, being immortal still has its downsides. With Apos' attempts at removing them from the picture increasing, can Rin and Mimi figure out what he is after so they can return to their morning shots of Vodka?

Both Mnemosyne and Nightwalker share in common the following:

1) A detective who's lived longer than ordinary humans (Rin, Shido)

2) A secretary who's rather sweet on the detective (Mimi, Riho)

3) An antagonist who wants the detective for his own (Apos, Cain)

Well the obvious reason would be: there both paranormal detectives. They both have a very young asistant (or a wannabe assistant)

Pet Shop of Horrors

Pet Shop of Horrors

At Count D's pet shop, you can acquire any form of animal, from an ordinary canary, to more.. "exotic" creatures. Made to sign a contract before purchase, Count D claims no "responsibility for actions incurred" if the purchaser does not follow its instructions completely, as results can be fatal. Patrons of this shop are able to get the rarest of creatures, but often, their purchases are coupled with demons from their past that won't go away easily.

Nocturnalgloria

Nightwalker and Pet Shop of Horrors are horror titles that use a supernatural plot to explore the emotional fragilities of humanity. Nightwalker is more a thriller mixed with a detective story with noir hints while Pet Shop of Horror is much more insidious in its several depictions of human flaw and informed by moral ambiguity.

Tactics

Nightwalker and Tactics are both a blend of comedy and drama, monsters and humans, and crazy sidekicks. Tactics is definitely prettier, and I didn't enjoy Nightwalker much, but the whole monster of the week thing definitely applies.
