For other uses of the word Succubus, see Succubus (disambiguation).Night Warriors: Darkstalkers' Revenge (originally titled Vampire Hunter: The Animated Series (ヴァンパイアハンター THE ANIMATED SERIES?) in Japan) is a four-episode Original Video Animation anime series by Madhouse Studios in association with DR Movie under license from Capcom, directed by Masashi Ikeda[1] and originally released in 1997. Toshifumi Yoshida and Trish Ledoux produced an English-dubbed version for Viz Media in 1999. The series was released on the VHS, DVD and Universal Media Disc. It is based on the Darkstalkers series of gothic-themed fighting video games by Capcom. Characters were designed by Shukō Murase and the animation was done by Asami Endo and Yoshinori Kanada. The ending theme for the series, "Trouble Man" by Eikichi Yazawa, was also used as the opening theme in the Japanese home port of the video game Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors. In this series, the succubus character Morrigan Aensland appears.


In the midst of a war between the families of Demitri Maximoff and Morrigan Aensland for control of the Demon World, alien invader Pyron arrives on Earth and plans to take it over by taking out those who stand a chance of stopping him, namely the Darkstalkers. Meanwhile, dhampir Donovan Baine seeks to rid himself of the cursed blood which runs through his veins. Four of the original Darkstalkers, Anakaris, Rikuo, Sasquatch and Victor are not featured in the OVA's main storyline, apparently having been killed by Pyron in a flashback sequence shown in the beginning of the fourth episode.
