Koyomi Araragi is an aloof boy who holds a strange, supernatural secret which inadvertently leads him to others with similar stories. Gods, spirits and afflictions can be pesky things, taking important memories or causing unusual tendencies – a fact that Koyomi and others are unfortunately aware of. Using the help of an eccentric homeless man, Koyomi is able to help new friends he meets along the way with their own paranormal conundrums…
Both animes have the same nice graphics/animation,Bakemonogatari have a vampire too,and the humor is similar. So if you enjoyed one of these animes you must try the other one
If you think about it, there actually quite the same. Because first of all, they have vampire’s. And if you have an eye for it they have both the same kind of dialogs. People have a conversation that is really abstract and not really show any emotion. And that is the point that you will like the other if you liked one of them. I think people that like one of them are kind of interested in the dialogs there having. In Bakemonogatari they show the missing emotions with things flashing through. In Dance in the Vampire Bund they do the same only there are less things that are flashing through and its more concentrated on camera view and the music. Of course there are people that liked one of them because of the violent atmosphere. Because the dialogs are not only abstract without emotion they are constantly threaten each other. Also I may not forget they both have the fights everyone would like. Once in the while they fight however when they do it they do it good. Remember watch both even if you didn’t even watched one of them.
Both being made by Shaft, they each have a similar method of story telling, a similar art and character design. They also are both heavy of ecchiness and loliness and have a lot of supernatural myths/characters.
Both of these animes are pieces of art in my opinion. The quality and animation of both are astonishing and very clear. They also have the same feel to it if you know what i mean. Darkness, romance, alot of smart talk :)
Both Bakemonogatari and Dance in the Vampire Bund are alike in many ways. The animation style and techniques applied to the visuals make these two anime's a must 'watch'. Listening or in some cases, reading the story alone is not enough to fully comprehend the intentions, feelings and complexities of both storys' characters.
The animation and the delivery of both animes leave them as highly recommended in my books.
has a very similar feel with the jumping around and what not. Deals with the whole supernatural theme really well and has strong vampire points in each of these amimes.
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.
Both of these series are rooted in the myth of the Vampire, but the similarities don't end there. Both series are action packed yet leave room for a romance side plot. If you liked either of these series you should have no problem watching the other.
If you wanted more romance from Dance in the Vampire Bund, Vampire Knight is more oriented to that genre. On the other hand, if action what you yearn for, Dance in the Vampire Bund is definitely the more intense of the two.
I agree with Rocketbean. Dance is like a hyped up more actiony version of Vampire Knight in a lot of ways which is good because it was kind of slow. >_> They both have mystery in their plots, deal with Vampires in a caste system and have sexual tensions as a plot vice between characters. Dance is a more enjoyable from a masculine perspective while Vampire Knight was very girl-friendly but I think they're both enjoyable if you let their plots run their course.Dance has more action and deeper/faster story to keep you more interested and some ecchi for those that enjoy it (I like a fair share) but also has some romance side-plots going on that the ladies seem to enjoy.
Action packed vampires at school?!?! Dance in the Vampire Bund and Vampire Knights include all of these features wrapped up in tales of romance and tragedy, love and happiness of the characters involved. Even though Vampire Knights steers more towards the taste of girls and Dance in the Vampire Bund is more for boys, each series is equally enjoyable to see.
The most striking similarity between the series is, of course, the prevalence of Vampires. Both animes are heavily concerned with the heirarchy of vampire societies and their dealings with humans. Mina Tepes, similar to Headmaster Kaien Cross, wishes to establish an area in which vampires can live peacefully, and coexist to an extent with humans instead of hunting them for blood. In the end, both series are action packed dramas with romance and politics mixed perfectly into the plot, making them excellent animes and certainly a delight to watch.
Vampire Knight and Dance in the Vampire Bund have many things in common, both are based on the legend, myths regarding vampires, both of them are action packed and filled with suspense and horror and they both feature a nice romance and wonderful romance aspect. Dance in the Vampire Bund feature more action than Vampire Knight which is more romance orientated but even so if you liked one check the other one as well.
Even though Dance in the Vampire Bund has a much more mature story to it and a lot less love-triangle headaches, the two are quite similar.A main character that can't quite remember their past, a dark theme throughout the serie and ofcourse, vampires. Even though DitVB handles the Vampire genre a bit more mature than VK, they're both two excellent Vampire animes and a great addition to your "watched" list.
Mochizuki Jirou, the Silver Blade, is an Old Blood. Ten years ago he fought the Kowloon Children, beings who were a threat to mankind and to vampires, in the Holy War. In the present, Jirou is trying to get to the Special Zone, a place where vampires and humans live alongside each other, with his brother; their guide is Mimiko Katsuragi, mediator for humans and vampires. But the brothers soon discover that the surviving Kowloon Children can also gain access to the Special Zone – if they receive an invite from a Royal within it. Who invited the Kowloon Children, and will Jirou be able to defeat them once more?
If you like this show, I think you'd also enjoy Black Blood Brothers/Dance in the Vampire Bund. Both have a simularity in the fact both are full of action, have vampires as main characters, and in both the vampires are trying to reach what's known as a "special zone" where all forms of vampires can live peacefully.
Black Blood Brothers and Dance in the Vampire Bund are both very similar because they are both aboutan age where vampires have come out of the shadows and showed themselves to human; they are similarbecause in both these animes the higher ranked vampires created a special zone to the vampires to live in with the help of the goverment.
So you liked one? Then you'll like the other. Its garanteed!
Both series have vampires as the main protaganists, and both series invlove a safe haven, or "special zone", where vampires can live along side humans peacefully.
Both of these animes revolve around a group of vampires making their own space peacefully amongst humans. The antagonists are vampires that wish that peace were destroyed. If you like supernatural protagonists, interesting fight scenes, and vampires that don't sparkle, these are for you.
I would recommend both BBB and Dance in the vampire bund because both are about vampires (and not the gay twilight kind either) and have a considerable ammount of action along... also both can be found on Netflix so they are both pretty easy to watch if you have an account... so if you like vampires or are into some pretty nice action then i would recommend these animes
Encased by trees that are used to make grave markers, Sotoba is a village thought to be surrounded by death - a fact that soon literally becomes the case. One summer, a series of mysterious and untimely fatalities begins to plague the small rural town. With a higher than normal mortality rate for the time of year and each cause of passing remaining unknown, Toshio, the local doctor, and Seishin the temple’s vice chief monk become suspicious and take it upon themselves to investigate. However, as the deaths begin to pile up, more people begin to wonder just what is behind this sudden epidemic; could it have anything to do with the bizarre Kirishiki family that recently moved to the village?
At first glance, Shiki looks a lot less sophisticated and grown up than Dance in the Vampire Bund, but the opposite is true. Shiki starts out slow, but steadily unfolds into the horror/vampire anime that it truly is. If you like DitVB, You'll love Shiki.
Each of these series focus around a vampire like existence and attempts to show their side of the story whilest they blend in with human society.
If you like Shiki, you'll love Dance in the Vampire Bund (and vice versa). Both have a scary and devious story, and both tell a unique tale of vampirism and humanity.
Probably the biggest similarity between the two is that it sort of revolves around vampires trying to find a place for them to call home and settle down at. While the vampires in Shiki take a much more violent approach to the matter than those in Dance in the Vampire Bund. Both do a rather good job in keeping things interesting especially if your a fan of vampires.
Dance in the Vampire Bund and Shiki is a little shocking at first glance to know what the head vampire's identity is: a young girl. Both consequently have large influence over their fellows vampires.
Dance in the Vampire Bund has more of friendship and romance qualities than Shiki, but Shiki in turn has more of a mystery quality to it. Both give the viewer a different side to the vampire: they are "people" too, and they can't help but exist as they do in order to survive and continue living on in the world. Both 'mortals' balk at these "monsters'" existence, but some actually sympathize with the vampires and become allies to protect them.
If you like Dance in the Vampire Bund and want a vampire anime that's stylishly drawn with a dramatic and smooth build up to the inevitable showdown between human vs. vampire, then this is a good anime to try.
Kagura and Yomi are two girls who have a bond that cannot be broken. While once they fought side by side against the supernatural forces that threaten the planet, fate had something different in store for these star-crossed companions. Yet to understand the present, one must first experience the past – a time before Kagura’s involvement with the Supernatural Disaster Prevention Agency. Always cheery and good-natured to a fault, the young Kagura first meets Yomi when she is invited into her home. Over time, the two battle malicious spirits and grow closer together – but soon, more terrifying foes begin to reveal themselves. A swarm of glowing blue butterflies and a mysterious stone are harbingers of darker things to come, and one thing’s for sure: Kagura and Yomi will never be the same.
Dance is a diffuclt one to come up with recommendations for, since it's fairly unique. Ga-Rei-Zero is very similar in terms of the characters and situations. Both series are also packed full of ecchi to the point of making themselves seem almost ridiculous. I assure you, if you loved one of these, you'll love the other.
If you liked one than you'll like the other because both series really have this darker look and feel to them and only having small instances of a light happy tone to them. Both series deal with things of the supernatureal in Dance in the Vampire Bund it's mainly vampires and werewolves and in Ga-Rei -Zero- it's more about things like demons and such. Also both series has some better nice action to them keeping the story interesting for both series.
