Karin is a vampire, but as fate would have it she is a freak among her own kind; for Karin doesn’t drink the blood of her counterparts – she is cursed to be a blood maker, forcing her to inject her extra blood into her victims. What’s worse is that if she doesn’t find an outlet for the blood in time, it explodes in a massive nose bleed of impressive volume. In Karin's twisted day-going state, she finds it nearly impossible to find safe victims; so, nose bleeds are a major problem. When transfer student and new classmate Usui Kenta proves to have exactly the kind of emotions her vampire nature most enjoys, she finds herself in comedic dire straights!
Karin and Moonphase are anime that show us that vampires can be cute! Both series are romantic comedies with vampire-human relationships. The humor is similar in both; they mainly focus on the vampires' need for human blood for survival. So if you liked one you will probably like the other.
Both anime tell the story of a girl who is a vampire going against vampire laws. Each heroine eventually meets a boy who will make her life more interesting, taking her away from her family's standards and protecting her from the outside world. Both anime also have a romantic tendency, and deal with the impossible love between a vampire and a human. In different ways, these two series contain lots of comical situations caused by the vampire's behavior.
If you liked Tsukuyomi -Moon Phase- you'd also like: Karin or vice versa; both anime's feature a heroine that are cute and not creepy which is usually the case in most stereotypical vampire stories, in addition both main characters are somehow different from normal vampires.
Both Moon Phase and Karin use humor to tell a tale about a young vampire girl. In both stories you get a lot great gags and super funny family members, but also a great romance between the characters.
In a world where magic is a reality, the young Louise is at the bottom of her class. Dubbed "Zero" by her classmates at Tristein Academy (due to her zero success rate for magic), Louise (along with all first year students) was charged with summoning a familiar; and instead of a cute magical creature, the familiar arrived in the form of... Saito Hiraga, a normal Japanese boy who was abruptly teleported from his own world?! Can both Louise and Saito come to terms with their new and complicated "relationship" and (more importantly) help Saito find a way home?
Both stories involve the main girl who wants to make the main guy her servant which never works out. As the anime progresses, they build a lot better relationships.
Both series have tsundere type female leads, whom make unwilling servants out of the male lead. Over time both master and servant grow to love one another and the servant begins to want to protect his master/love intrest. Both series deal with the female lead being magical and both share a similar romanic comedy with a good bit of action and magic to make both series a solid adventure and over all plot outside of the romance. BOTTOM LINE: If you enjoyed one you will enjoy the other. At the very least one will remind you of the other.
For all you guys who wanted a kawaii girl to think she's got her claws into you, these two animes are just right for you. Louise and Hazuki share lots of charming dominance for you to enjoy!
Moon Phase and Zero no Tsukaima are very simiiar. Both have a young girl with super powers and both a boy who is a normal but wants to save the girl. In both stories you get a lot of adventure and a nice romance. Also both stories have a tsundere element to them.

Tsukihime is another anime that deals with vampires and romance. The plot is somewhat alike: the female vampire is being chased and needs protection from a weaker human male. Tsukuyomi is more innocent, but it really does have quite a few similarities.

Aishiteruze Baby and Tsukuyomi Moon Phase are both anime that have touches of romance, comedy and drama. Aishiteruze Baby is more realistic and has more drama, but Tsukuyomi isn't really overflowing with comedy either.
