I think we can blame the young-adult novel, Twilight, for all these supernatural and vampire romances. It is a growing international fandom. So to add to this trend, here’s a list of vampire romances you might be interested in reading or watching.

Blood+

Haji is a great chevalier: supportive and protective. Saya is one lucky girl.

Strike The Blood (ストライク・ザ・ブラッド )

Kojou Akatsuki drinks the blood of humans, and in return, he receives awesome powers over familiars.

Karin (かりん)

Karin is a cute vampire romance story about a unique vampire girl who produces too much blood and has to inject the excess blood into others as oppose to the norm of drinking blood as a vampire.

Rosario+Vampire

A normal teenage boy attends a school full of monsters.

Midnight Secretary (ミッドナイト·セクレタリ)

Your boss lives a double life. Whatever you do, do not work overtime. Midnight Secretary is a josei manga for mature audiences only.

Pureblood Boyfriend

Who wouldn’t want a vampire as a friend or boyfriend?

unTOUCHable (언터처블)

Vampires have evolved. Instead of drinking blood, these vampires only need to touch a human in order to obtain energy. In this South Korean webtoon, a vampire model,  Sia Lee, is desperate to touch her prey, a writer named Jiho. However, Jiho has mysophobia.

Orange Marmalade (오렌지 마말레이드)

In a world where vampires and humans coexist, a human boy, Jung Jae-min falls in love with a vampire girl, Baek Ma-ri. I know it sounds like the storyline from Twilight, but what I like about this South Korean webtoon is how it talks about race and segregation through vampire and human relationships.

Vampire Knight

I included Vampire Knight for obvious reasons.

Diabolik Lovers

Another reverse harem vampire romance anime. The first season left me with some unanswered questions, but I am looking forward to the second season!

  1. Blood + was a great series to watch. Great characters and story. In the other hand, I couldn’t stomach Rosario Vampire. All that unnecessary fanservice just turned me off.

    1. Blood+ was a good series. Yeah, fan service can get to be too much for some shows. Sometimes I wonder towards what degree is too much fanservice.
