In world where flesh-eating monsters roam the streets, only one organization has the means to save civilization from annihilation: Red Shield, a specially-organized unit designed to fight these monsters, and the only weapon that can destroy them: Saya. Awakened from a 30-year sleep, Saya is thrust into a modern world which she has no memories of, and is troubled by a past filled only with bloodshed and sadness.

Cross Academy is a school with a difference: in a unique and experimental setup designed by the headmaster, it has a Day Class consisting of ordinary humans and a Night Class filled with vampires. Yuki Cross and her friend Zero Kiryu are school prefects whose job it is to make sure the secret of the Night Class is always safe; they patrol the school grounds at night and supervise the switchover of classes at dawn and dusk to prevent any 'accidents' from happening. While Zero is suspicious of vampires and hates the idea of sharing the same space as them, Yuki admires the Night Class for their beauty and sophistication; she is especially intrigued by their charming leader, Kaname, because he once saved her life. However, as Yuki quickly learns, not all vampires are amiable like the Night Class, and as terrible events unfold, Yuki must ask herself whether in a world where vampires are the hunters and humans are the prey, peaceful coexistence can really be achieved.
Featuring female leads caught between the vampire and human worlds, both stories play out passionate dramas that rely on the question of what it means to be human and what it means to be a monster.
i really cannot find an anime that is more closer to Vampire Knight than Blood+. Both feature female leads which are traped between the human world and the vampire world, both shows are dramas and are based on a romance story and both of them are action packed shows. If you liked one be sure to do not miss the other one as well.
Strong vampiric-like female leads are seen in both Blood + and Vampire Knight capturing the drama in one single moment. The fighting scenes are similar and there are also strong features coming through in both series that make the background strikingly beautiful.
Just like Blood+, Vampire Knight is about a girl with lost memories and she is surrounded by vampires while trying to regain those memories.
A giant wall looms over Tokyo, shielding the city from a dangerous otherworld called the 'Hell's Gate'. Within the city, things are no less terrifying because Contractors, psychopathic killers with phenomenal powers, have started to appear. These killers are compelled to pay a price every time they use their powers, often in the form of a meaningless or painful task. As their deadly habits rack up a gruesome death toll, Kirihara Misaki and her team from the Foreign Affairs Public Security struggle to solve the cases and bring the Contractors under control. Their task is further confounded by the interference of a masked individual they title Messier Code BK201, a man with abilities that allow him to fight and defeat the Contractors. Who is this BK201? How can the Contractors be stopped permanently? And what does the appearance of the Hell's Gate mean for the people of Tokyo?
Both of these animes have dark and supernatural themes, anyone who has seen the either darker than black or blood+ would love the other, other than sharing the same kind of themes, both these animes have fantastic action packed fighting scenes, and plenty of different mysteries to solve.
I haven't watched many anime similar to these two, so when I saw one, it immediately reminded me of the other. They both have a Post-Apocalyptic feel with hints of supernatual abilities.
Even more so, I feel like they both want to be huge epic shows that leave the audience feeling like they're in shock and disbelief. Even though I believe that both of them had their strongest episodes in the middle, they have decent endings. In DtB, they leave the story more open-ended and there's not much of a conclusion but Blood+ pretty much closes the books on their story (given it's 50+ eps).
They both have a dark aura to their stories and if you like one, you should definitely try the other.
Both shows have a rather dark atmosphere and they feature supernatural creatures and include a lots of fighting. Another similarity unfortunately is that I was a bit unsatisfied with their endings.

But as Ryuk foretells, Light's actions will not go unchallenged...
Both Play on the enivibility of Death and the Evil in the world but in one you ahve an eo Character who does the killing with the world domination and new world order in mind for himself, with the other you have a badass Vampire trying to correct the mistakes of the past by stopping the onslaught of the monsters and the twin who wants to rule the world, both have the 2 sides of the same coin scenario but you see the perspective differently in each, very interesting watch.
The concept of death is a key factor in both Blood + and Death Note, death is an inevitable thing for everyone and both these series explore the good and evil sides about it. The outcome is likely to be the same yet the perspectives are entirely different.
Death note and blood plus are very atmospheric anime with strong chaercters and supernatural thems. bouth also have a lot of mystery and tension in the plots. bouth also have animation that focise a lot on shadowing.

Both Gungrave and Blood+ have a strong story that takes a bit of the supernatural and places it in our own world. This gives the anime a realistic feel. Character development and atmosphere play another huge part in these anime.
Both anime are successful attempts at exploring revenge, death and cruelty, through the central protagonists who dutifully serve the kindness and friendships they identify with saving in a bloody violent world. Both are fluidly animated, spawning great action scenes, a variety of different kinds of evil and a cast of characters who you will come to loathe or admire. You may just enjoy them both...
Gungrave and Blood+ are similar enought that I think if you love one, you will at least like the other. Both have intriguing plot, deep friendships, similar levels of action (with some variation of weapons and style), and tasteful supernatural elements. Gungrave's plot may be slightly more sophisticated and unique than Blood+'s plot, but not so much that fans would be terribly disappointed. Blood+ isn't without its plot twists, either.
These two anime have enough of a similar feel than a fan of one will probably enjoy the other.
D'Eon is a French nobleman bent on serving his Divine Majesty Louis the XIV to the best of his abilities, following in the footsteps of his beloved sister Lia de Beaumont. However, his straight-forward role with the secret police is interrupted by the sudden death of his sister while on a diplomatic mission in foreign lands. In his desire to find the truth of her murder, he comes before the King and becomes closely entwined in the mysterious organization known as Le Secret du Roi. He quickly finds himself embroiled in a realm of spiritual energy where death is a gate to greater powers and the Psalm of the King brings destruction in its wake. D'Eon must ask himself what is the price of truth and who will pay it, as the French Revolution looms inevitably nearer.
Both Blood+ and Le Chevalier D'eon go beyond your typical supernatural/action series. With complicated and far-reaching plots (Blood+, in particular, turns out to be far more complex than the first episode would suggest), attention to character development (the characters in each grow beyond their basic archetypes) and well-animated sword fighting sequences (that are suitably dramatic without lasting forever), I think the two series have enough in common to recommend to fans.
Supernatural ghouls, secret societies and some good action sequences add to the drama, mystery and familial intrigue of Blood + and Le Chevalier D'Eon. Both riddled with historical tie-ins, Blood+ and D'Eon feature large casts who travel far and wide to solve the complex mysteries that the primary characters (or their family members) are fated to be a part of. Though both series have some very well executed action sequences, neither is strictly an action/adventure show, relying heavily on relatively complicated plots and character development (both with scene-stealing secondary characters).
Le Chevalier D-Eon and Blood + are both supernatural and action based series with the main focus centered on the character development and the story of what the characters have to go through. There is a complex mystery in both that gets revealed throughout the series little by little and both of the series have a historical feeling to them.
