When you think of vampire anime what comes to mind? A badass story about Dracula? Nope. It’s Probably a Cheap Shojo, and you’d be right. because so far out of the fuck ton of anime I’ve watched, I could only find 5 good ones. So here are the top 5 vampire anime you can sink your teeth into.
5. Blood Lad
Number 5, Blood Lad. This short anime has 10 episodes. I love how It doesn’t take itself to seriously because let’s face it some anime try way to hard to be badass without the time and budget making it unbearable to watch. Blood Lad Also has relatable characters like Staz who is a fucking weeb. The anime also has loads of references to popular shonen like dragon ball z.
4. Vampire Hunter D bloodlust
Number 3, Vampire hunter d Bloodlust. Most vampire anime are set in the past or present however this takes a unique approach by putting it in a post-nuclear far-future setting. Despite this anime being over 20 years old it still has one of the most jaw-dropping art styles to date. Mixed with the soundtrack this anime does a great job of conveying the feeling of loneliness as Vampire D watches his race go extinct. Not to mention the badass vampire fights.
3. Owari no Seraph
Number 3, Seraph of the End, This anime is similar to demon slayer. but unlike that anime, I have some problems of it being predictable and bland however -it does have an interesting concept Where Vampires control the world unlike most anime in the genre. I also enjoy that humans are the ones struggling to survive with the addition of vampires being naturally stronger giving the anime a somewhat desperate feeling.
2. JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure
Number 2, JoJo’s Bizarre adventure. This anime puts you on the edge of your seat as you watch the relationship between dio and jojo progress. With it feeling like Dio being the one in control. With the first episode being able to pull me in because of dio’s mostly successful attempts to ruin jojo’s life even though he’s an innocent and genuine person. The art style is also unique. It reminds me of a more colorful and less gross version of baki.
1. Hellsing Ultimate
Number 1, Hellsing ultimate. It’s also important to realize that This ain’t no chick flick like most of the fucking vampire genre. This is the real shit and is the one of best vampire anime to watch with it doing an outstanding job at grabbing your attention with its unusual approach to vampires. Unlike most anime in the genre where you have vampires vs humans in this anime, you have a vampire fighting vampires,demons, the church, and other factions which makes for a pretty chaotic series. It also has a great dub because the characters have different accents depending on where they’re from.
So this concludes my list of the top 5 vampire anime you can sink your teeth into.
