Shido, Night Walker
He's a detective. And he sucks.
Blood, that is. He's SHIDO, the 300 year-old vampire detective who specializes in cases involving the occult. In this evidently popular anime series from Japan, he searches for clues to his long-lost identity, while battling supernatural drug menaces and other scum, led by the evil and villainous Cain, the vampire who turned him into a bloodsucking midnight avenger centuries ago. But Shido uses his powers for good now, not evil, working tirelessly to save a modern Japan threatened by the forces of darkness, while trying to dodge the beautiful, impetuous policewoman hot on his tail.
I'm not even sure where to file this. Comics? Cartoons? Film? Television? Was it ever broadcast? All I really know is that 12 episodes of this Japanese anime are now available in DVD and VHS (and probably Blu-Ray by now), and that it was based on a popular video game.
