Best Vampire Anime to Enjoy Watching
Rosario to Vampire
Youkai Academy appears to be a typical boarding school, except that its students are monsters who are learning to live among humans. All pupils attend classes in human form and study courses including literature, gym, foreign language, and maths. At Youkai Academy, however, there is one golden rule: any human detected on school premises must be killed instantly!
Tsukune Aono is a typical adolescent who is unable to enroll in any high school due to his poor academic performance. As a last-ditch effort to ensure his education, his parents enroll him in Youkai Academy by accident. Tsukune has an unintentional run-in with Moka Akashiya, the most stunning female on college, as he enters this new world. He decides to stay in the dangerous world in order to advance his love with Moka, but he has no idea that underneath her beauty lurks a terrifying creature, a vampire.
Vampire Hunter D
Vampire hunter D walks across a post-nuclear war Earth that blends aspects of pulp genres such as westerns, science fiction, horror, and Lovecraftian horror, dark fantasy, folklore, and occult science on a far-future post-nuclear war Earth. The planet, once terrorized by the elegant but cruel vampires known as Nobles, ancient demons, mutants, and their technological creations, is now slowly returning to a semblance of order and human control, thanks in part to the decadence that led to the vampire race's demise, the stubbornness of frontier dwellers, and the rise of a caste of independent hunters-for-hire who eliminate supernatural threats.
A nuclear war broke out sometime in 1999. The Nobility were vampires who planned for a nuclear apocalypse and hid everything required to reconstruct humanity in their underground lairs. They utilize a combination of technology and magic to remake the world in their image. With the exception of demons, gods, aliens, and extradimensional entities that survived the holocaust, nearly all magical creatures on Earth have been genetically modified by the Nobility to exhibit supposedly superhuman skills, regeneration, and biological immortality.
Rosario to Vampire Capu2
Tsukune Aono has been a student at Youkai Academy for a year, and his life has taken an unusual turn since then. He has attracted a bevy of attractive ladies who want him all to themselves: the seductive succubus Kurumu Kurono; Yukari Sendou, a witch; stalker and yuki-onna Mizore Shirayuki; and Moka Akashiya, a sweet vampire who exhibits a darker demeanor when her rosary is removed.
But shortly, Youkai Academy is visited by turmoil in the guise of Moka's younger sister, Kokoa Shuzen. She is enraged that her "real older sister" is imprisoned within Moka's rosary, and she resolves to free her. Kokoa's rash acts, on the other hand, may have an impact on more than just her sister...
Dance in the Vampire Bund
Mina epeș, Princess-Ruler of All Vampires, and her werewolf bodyguard Akira Kaburagi Regendorf are at the center of the plot. Mina, like other vampires, has been hiding with her people for a long time. Mina, seeking to end centuries of seclusion, obtains permission to establish "The Bund," a special neighborhood for vampires off the coast of Tokyo, Japan, by repaying the Japanese government's entire national debt with her family's great riches.
Following a debate program in which she kills noted vampire movie actor Seiichi Hirai (who was later proved to be a true vampire) during his rage, Mina announces the existence of vampires to the public, expressing her desire for both species to coexist on "The Bund." Fearful humans and radical vampire factions, on the other hand, begin to interfere with Mina's goal for peace with the human world, raising tensions. As a result, Mina and Akira are tasked with defending "The Bund" from the intruders.
Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign
In the year 2012, the world is said to come to an end due to a "man-made" virus that ravages the world's population, leaving only children under the age of thirteen unaffected. Vampires erupt from the depths of the ground at the same moment, possibly followed by age-old horrors of the dark previously considered to be myth. In a single brutal stroke, they sweep the world and seize it, subjugating humanity's remnants and taking them under the surface to safety. This "defense" comes at the cost of "donating" blood to their captives, who have no idea they are vampires. At the age of twelve, Yichir and his buddy and fellow orphan Mikaela conspired to flee Hyakuya Orphanage with the other children.
However, this leads to their deaths, and Mikaela sacrifices himself so that Yichir can escape and be saved by soldiers of the Moon Demon Company, a Japanese Imperial Demon Army eradication force. After four years, Yichir dedicates his life to destroying vampires and seeking vengeance for the murder of his "family." At the same time, Mikaela is shown to have survived and is planning to track down Yichir.
Yuki's first recollection is of being assaulted by a rogue vampire on a stormy winter night and being saved by Kaname Kuran, a Pureblood vampire. Yuki is now the adoptive daughter of Cross Academy's headmaster, Kaien Cross, and a vampire guardian, hiding her childhood crush, Kaname, from discovery as he leads a group of vampires at the exclusive boarding school.
Zero Kiryu is by her side, a childhood buddy whose anger for the animals who killed everything he cared about has made him resolved to never trust them again. This peaceful coexistence appears to be a wonderful thing, but have the vampires actually given up their bloodthirsty ways, or is there a deeper reality behind their actions? Nothing is as it seems in this world of mysteries. The cost of misguided faith might be much higher than death. Is the truth going to pain Yuki more than not knowing if she genuinely discovers what happened in her past?
