Mankind is threatened by a race of creatures called the Nightbreed, people who have, either willingly or through deception, succumbed to supernatural beings. And hunting them down is a man named Shido. A detective. A warrior. A vampire. And with the help of an urban spirit, his naive secretary, and a police agent assigned to special cases, Shido stands as a vanguard against the Nightbreed. But he has his own difficulties as well. Including his sire, the mysterious Kain, and his prophecies of the Golden Dawn... Written by

Did You Know?
The R1 DVD release for "Nightwalker" treats it as a single, 12-episode TV series. However, the series started as a 4-episode OAV, which is why a there is an ending to the story arc with episode 4. The OAV series was then taken to TV, where an additional 8-episodes were created for the 12-episode count seen here. This is why after "episode 5", the art/animation/character designs are different and why there are no episode previews for episodes 1-4. See more
