NightWalker Vol. 1: Midnight Detective (2001)
  NightWalker is the tale of a good vampire who works as a private detective, told over 12 TV episodes on 2 DVDs. I think this inspired Joss Whedon when he turned Angel into a spinoff.
Phantom Quest Corp.: Perfect Collection (2000)
Not Rated
  Four OVA episodes collected on one DVD. Renters are divided on this show. I thought it was fun.
Hyper Police: Episodes 1-4 (1998)
  Hyper Police is a 25 episode TV series collected on 6 DVDs.
Descendants of Darkness Vol. 1: Vampire's Lure (2002)
Not Rated
  Descendants of Darkness centers around a supernatural investigative organization located in the bowels of the Japanese parliament building. 13 episodes on 4 DVDs.
Tokyo Babylon (1999)
Not Rated
  Two OVA episodes featuring psychic investigator Subaru Sumeragi, a character from the popular X series by CLAMP.
Yu Yu Hakusho Vol. 1 - The Spirit Detective: Yusuke Lost Yusuke Found (1992)
  Yu Yu Hakusho is a long running series made up of 112 TV episodes and a few movies.
Judge (1993)
Not Rated
  One OVA, one victim, one case, one investigation, one Judge. The JUDGE OF DARKNESS!!! He should get his own daytime show on American TV.
The Night Stalker/The Night Strangler (1971)
Not Rated
  X-Files creator calls The Night Stalker one of his strongest influences. Too bad so little of this excellent early 70's series is available for rental! The hero is a rumpled reporter named Carl Kolchak (a human) who has a knack for the supernatural.
The X-Files: Season 1 (disc 1 of 7) (1993)
Not Rated
  Mulder and Scully are two human FBI agents who investigate the X-files, cases dealing with aliens, the occult, and the supernatural.
Angel: Season 1 (Disc 1 of 6) (1999)
  Ongoing WB Buffy spinoff. Angel moves to L.A. and becomes a good vampire detective. Sound familiar?
Sherlock Hound: Case File 1 (1984)
  If you think that talking dogs are "supernatural" then Sherlock Hound, a children's TV series from Studio Ghibli, could be what you're looking for!
