10. Fruits Basket

Fruits BasketSynopsis – Tohru Honda is a 16-year-old orphaned girl who gets invited to live in the house of her classmate, the handsome boy Sohma Yuki, and his cousins, 16-year-old Kyo and 27-year-old Shigure. However, these young men and parts of the rest of their family (both close and distant) hold a curse; if they are hugged by the opposite gender, they transform into animals of the Chinese Zodiac. Every day is an adventure for sweet Tohru, as she gets to know everyone in the large family better (especially Yuki and Kyo), in both common and bizarre situations. But, the Sohma Family curse is certainly no laughing matter… it also holds horrible cruelty and heartbreak.

Similarity – The characters in VK and Fruits Basket seem similar. Both Tohru and Yuuki start out innocent to what’s really going on around them, but as the storyline unfolds, both are determined to do whatever they can to help with the situation. (Both characters also have the same voice actor) Also, Kyo and Zero both have the anti-social, trying to be a tough guy and deal with my problems all by myself thing going on.

9. Trinity Blood

Trinity BloodSynopsis – The background is in the distant future after the destruction brought about by Armageddon. The war between the vampires and the humans continue to persist. In order to protect the humans from the vampires, the Vatican has to rely on other allies to counter the situation. The protagonist, Abel Nightroad, is a traveling priest from the Vatican and a crusnik, a vampire that drinks the blood of vampires. He is a member of the “Ax”, a special operations group led by Cardinal Catherina Sforza. He encounters a young girl called Esther, who decides to go with him to Rome and train at the Vatican. Soon after he meets her, the order of Rozencreuz, led by Abel’s twin, Cain, tries to continue the war so they can rule the world. It’s up to Abel and the AX to try and stop them.

Similarity – Both series involve an MC character that joins a special squad. Each person in the squad has a single, unique skill. Where they differ is in the nature of the squads: the MC joins a special detectives squad in Bungou Stray Dogs while the MC in Akame ga Kill joins a squad of assassins. In both series, the squads face an immensely powerful and cruel group. Neither series holds back on the violence as well.

8. Dance with Devils

Dance with DevilsSynopsis – Ritsuka Tachibana has always been a good student, so she is completely shocked when she is suddenly summoned by the student council. Even more, they seem to think of Ritsuka as a troublemaker. However, this is only the beginning. When her mother gets kidnapped, her life is turned upside down, and Ritsuka gets drawn into a world of vampires and devils. Both groups are searching for the “Grimoire,” a forbidden item allowing its owner to rule the world. The return of her brother Lindo from overseas gives her hope, but even he appears to be hiding something. In a world filled with secrets, Ritsuka questions whom she can trust in this dark musical tale, while the handsome and dangerous members of the student council compete for her attention.

Similarity – The two compare in terms of romance and the supernatural. If you’re like me and seek a darker romance, vampire knight is one of my all-time favorites and has a similar feel, yet a more developed/longer storyline and Dance with Devils fulfills that amazingly. Bishis swarming here and there plus Reverse Harem.

7. Diabolik Lovers

Diabolik LoversSynopsis – At the behest of her father, Yui Komori goes to live in a secluded mansion, home to the six Sakamaki brothers—Shuu, Reiji, Ayato, Kanato, Laito, and Subaru—a family of vampires. Though at first the siblings are confused as to why the girl has arrived, they soon realize that she is to be their new “sacrificial bride,” not to mention their other, more carnal intentions for her. After meeting the brothers, Yui quickly begins to question why her father would have sent her here and why she feels a strange, new pain in her chest. With each brother more sadistic than the last, Yui’s life as a captive takes a harrowing turn in her new home. As her days turn into endless nights, and each brother vows to make her his own, Yui falls deeper and deeper into madness and ecstasy.

Similarity – Both have the same romance, horror, reverse harem, vampire and the same setting where it is set in a school excursively for vampires, dissimilarities are that the female protagonist in one anime is not alone when dealing with vampires, while the female protagonist is all by herself and has to fend off them vampires.

6. Karin

karinSynopsis – Vampires—supernatural beings that feed on the life essence of the unsuspecting at night—have been around for centuries. However, high schooler Karin Maaka is unusual, even among her own kind. Unlike her vampire family, ever since she was a child, Karin has suffered from polycythemia: a rare disorder which causes her to periodically produce excessive amounts of blood. And the more blood she produces, the more anemic and lightheaded she gets, ultimately leading to frequent nosebleeds. Her only solution? Force her excess blood onto random strangers, which surprisingly causes these “victims” to become livelier and happier than before. That is, until Karin’s newly transferred classmate, Kenta Usui, finds her behavior suspicious. And to make matters even more complicated, Karin feels her blood reacting unusually to Kenta’s presence.

Similarity – Seeing how these animes are both contain vampire, the theme of the animes is to break down the wall between humans and vampires. Both animes also involves school life and daily activities. There is some comedy and love interest involved in both animes so if you like Karin, you will like Vampire Knight…

5. Hakuouki

HakuoukiSynopsis – In 1864 Japan, a young woman named Chizuru Yukimura is searching for her missing father, Koudou, a doctor by trade whose work often takes him far from home. But with no word from him in months, Chizuru disguises herself as a man and heads to Kyoto in search of him. Attracting the attention of ronin, she tries to hide and ends up witnessing a horrifying sight: the ronin being brutally murdered by crazed white-haired men. In a startling turn of events, members of the Shinsengumi arrive to dispatch the creatures. But Chizuru’s safety doesn’t last long, as this group of men tie her up and take her back to their headquarters, unsure of whether to let her live or silence her permanently.

Similarity – Hakuouki is like an Edo era version of Vampire Knight. The Rasetsu, humans (originally) that turn into blood-crazed demons possessing extraordinary strength and are after the heroine’s “special” kind of blood at several points in the show, strongly resemble the Level Es of VK. Both are reverse harem anime produced by Studio DEEN.

4. Blood+

Blood+Synopsis – Saya Otonashi is a seemingly ordinary girl living a mundane life with her adoptive family in Okinawa City. In fact, her only peculiarities are suffering from anemia and being unable to remember any of her life beyond the previous year. However, Saya’s forgotten past quickly comes back to haunt her—one night, she is attacked at school by a creature that feeds on human blood. Just when all hope seems lost, a mysterious man named Haji appears and fends off the creature temporarily. But when her rescuer forces her to drink his blood, Saya suddenly enters a trance and slays the monster with ease, using her own blood as a catalyst.

Similarity – Both deal with vampires and both deal with love. They have good fighting scenes between their enemies and each have an evil person within their family who is trying to get them killed. If you are into bloody romances and killing, basically a trilling anime that will keep you on the edge of your seat, please do watch it and enjoy it

3. Dance in the Vampire Bund

Dance in the Vampire BundSynopsis – On live television, Mina Tepes, the ruler of all vampires, reveals the existence of her species to the world and states her plan to build a sanctuary in Japan for vampires, called the Vampire Bund. Using her family’s wealth to pay off the nation’s debt, they have agreed to let her build this safe-haven for her fellow creatures of the night. But not everyone is so easily swayed by Mina’s influence, as her announcement brings about conflict with humans who believe that the queen’s quest for peace is a façade. Akira Kaburagi does not believe in vampires and gets uneasy whenever they are brought up, although he has yet to realize why. But Akira’s secret is far stranger than he could have ever thought possible—he discovers that he is a werewolf, sworn from birth to protect the vampire queen, even if it costs him his life.

Similarity – Both are mystery-centered and full of action and suspense (and vampires of course!). Vampire Knight deals with integration of vampires on a small-scale, while Dance in the Vampire Bund involves vampires forming their own nation! Each have deep and intricate plots as well.

2. Zombie-Loan

Zombie LoanSynopsis – Do you know when you are going to die? Michiru Kita does, as she has the ability to see the ring of death around people’s necks. The darker the ring, the closer to death someone is. She notices that two boys in her class, Chika Akatsuki and Shito Tachibana, have completely black rings. Seeking to warn them of their impending demise, she stumbles onto their secret: they are already dead, but they are kept alive due to a contract with Zombie-Loan. Of course, nothing comes without a price. The boys must hunt down and destroy zombies, seeking to use Michiru’s “Shinigami Eyes” to help them in their endeavor.

Similarity – These anime are similar because, for starters, they both have fantasy like storylines. (Vampire knight tells about the evening class of vampires, and zombie-loan tells about a company called zombie loan that offers zombies their lives if they send other zombies back ‘home’ ). Both anime’s have Female main characters that have a special quality. Each have a special quality that has you wanting more!

1. Rosario to Vampire

Rosario to VampireSynopsis – Tsukune Aono is an average teenager who is unable to get into any high school because of his bad grades. His parents inadvertently enroll him into Youkai Academy as a last-ditch effort to secure his education. As Tsukune unknowingly enters this new world, he has a run-in with the most attractive girl on campus, Moka Akashiya. Deciding to stay in the perilous realm in order to further his relationship with Moka, he does not realize that beneath her beauty lies a menacing monster—a vampire. Rosario to Vampire is a supernatural school comedy that explores Tsukune’s romantic exploits, experiences, and misadventures with a bevy of beautiful but dangerous creatures.

Similarity – The first thing us they both have to do with vampires! Nt only that, but they also have to do with vampires in school. In each TV series… they meet up with at least one normal human being or a vampire. And the vampire try to suck the yumas blood all the time! Duh, its a vampire. But most of the storyline is different, both have comedy and romance, but Rosario + vampire is more romance than drama.
