Anyone who's seen Akira, Ghost in the Shell, the Vampire Hunter D movies, Serial Experiments Lain, or, hell, any episode of Robotech, knows what I'm talking about.

The vampire turns out to be an astronaut. The government agency and the crime syndicate switch labels. The lecherous old man turns out to be Master Boo-Yong Shai, Hyper Space Police Murder Detective 003.
