Nightwalker arrives on DVD from 1998, not that you’d be able to tell from the visuals. It feels very much like a product from a decade earlier. Everything about it screams 1980s noir. From the cool opening music, to the feel of a detective story with a bit of a foggy and dark edge, there seems to be a real interest in paying homage to a bygone era. This tribute is a huge hindrance as the visuals may come across as nostalgic and retro, but the animation and stories are often painfully simple.

The show follows a vampire who runs a private detective agency. So far so good, but it soon devolves into your average monster of the week series that ignores any of the investigative elements.
