Morimiya Yorito is a normal student who has an abnormal obsession for the sky. One day, he meets a strange girl named Shihou Matsuri who shares his interest, but as fate may have it, she isn't a human; Matsuri is a Yaka -- a "woe of the night" -- who is immortal and cannot stand the sunlight. A strange man is chasing Matsuri, to use her powers, so Yorito decides to help her hide. What are the strange man's plans, and what secrets does Yorito's sister hide?

Both of these shows contain supernatural plot and the idea of normal boy meeting fantasy female creature in trouble, trying to help her and protect her and in the end finally for her, without expecting happy end to come. Similar atmosphere and a little of fighting involved are factors that should make you try this one as well.

As just finishing watcihng the entire series of Sola twice >_< I think that Lunar Legend Tsukihime and Sola would be very good Recommendations for each other.

As in Sola, Yorito is a sky driven maniac taking pictures of the sky is to Shaki, in lunar Legend, killing random girls on the street who happen to be a vampire Queens.

In Sola, there are creatures called Yaka, or also known as Calamity (of the night) or Imortal Monster; which is pretty much a creature who burns in the sunlight just like vampires, which is a genra for LunarLegends. Another Ironic twist, both animes are Romances.

Sola contains much more drama then Lunar Legend just as a side note. If you liked either of these series, then the other one is a good choise probably...

wolfangel87

Sola and Lunar Legend Tsukihime both have male protagonists in the series trying to help out the main female character, who has a unnatural ability.  The heroes try and protect that female character from the things that are after them, creating chaos and drama.  Both series have a sense of romance between the main characters

Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust

Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
  • Movie (1 ep x 102 min)
  • 2000

In the distant future, the world lies in ruin and vampires rule the land. Mercenary vampire hunters fight the terrible forces of darkness - for a price; the most notorious of them all being the half-vampire named D.

When a girl named Charlotte is kidnapped by the vampire Lord Meier, her father hires D to bring her back - dead or alive. Competing with the vampire hunting Marcus Brothers for the prize, D encounters Meier first; but in the middle of their confrontation, Charlotte calls out Meier's name in worry and Meier reveals that she is accompanying him of her own free will...

A vampire hunting other vampires; yeah, it's been done before. But Bloodlust and Tsukihime add in a pretty good story about a romance which cannot be tolerated. These points gave me a similar feel when watching them.

DeathGodX

They are both dark and have vampires and romance in them, though Vampire Hunter D Bloodlust is more gory then Tsukihime. Tsukihime is based in our time, and vampires are barely noticed and are rare; in Vampire Hunter D our world has been destroyed by vampires and to kill them you need a vampire hunter.

wolfangel87

With romance taking the sidelines the bonding relationship become all that more apparent in Vampire Hunter D and Lunar Legend Tsukihime.  While vampires take up a great deal of both series how vampires are able to interact with humans is an interesting concept in each. 

Aquarian Age

Aquarian Age

Kyouta and his friends just want to rock out all day and night long, and with a new record deal, it seems they'll be able to do just that. But when the women around him, including his best friend Yokko, start revealing strange powers, Kyouta finds himself at the crux of an ancient conflict, torn between love and loyalty.

Tsukihime and Aquarian Age have two main things in common. The first thing is a good romance story. One that doesn't involve comedy or harem in any way. It stays serious and has a realistic feel to it. The second thing is that there is actually some action happening on the background to support it. It interacts really well with the characters, giving them the necessary development to draw you into the story. There are not your typical romance anime and are both some of my favorites!

wolfangel87

Even though Lunar Legend Tsukihime has some supernatural basis it still has the same realistic romance feeling that Aquarian Age manages to capture between the characters.  There is no comedy or antics in these two series just the pure unbidden love between two people that really care about one other and just how much their love means to them.

Ayashi no Ceres

Ayashi no Ceres

There is a legend of an angel who fell to Earth many years ago, and was forced to marry a man because he held the key to her only way home. Hundreds of years later, sixteen year old Mikage Aya is the reincarnation of Ceres, the vengeful angel, who must now fight for her life against her family and her own twin brother Aki, the reincarnation of her past evil husband...

Both Tsukihime and AnC involve families with a past that is kept hidden from the present generation. This creates problems when that past finally catches up. In addition, there is the romantic element that is mysteriously linked to the main character, and in the end, helps them remember who they really are.

wolfangel87

As the past for the main characters is unknown in Ayashi no Ceres and Lunar Legend Tsukihime problems start to arise from the secrets.  Both series contain supernatural elements designed to enhance the mysteries surround the leads. 

Blood The Last Vampire

Blood The Last Vampire

If you liked Shingetsutan Tsukihime then you could see Blood: The Last Vampire. In both series the main charachters is running around killing evil creatures (Vampires). Blood: The Last Vampire is much darker than Shingetsutan Tsukihime. In Blood: The Last Vampire the girl knows who she is and fighting the evil just because she has to, in Shingetsutan Tsukihime he fights the evil not knowing really way, he just know that he has to do it. In Shingetsutan Tsukihime they have more powers than in Blood: The Last Vampire.
wolfangel87

The same feeling runs through Lunar Legend Tsukihime and Blood the Last Vampire.  The main characters strive to kill vampires that are attacking everyone.
