Synopsis:

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.

Kuroshitsuji

Kuroshitsuji

In Victorian England it is commonplace for the rich and wealthy to have a staff, led by a head butler, to run their households; the Phantomhive Estate is no different. The young and demanding Count Ciel Phantomhive, child owner of a toy company, lives in the grand countryside manor. Sebastian is his head butler, and the epitome of perfection; he effortlessly and gracefully completes his day-to day chores and fixes the countless mistakes of the other employees. However, whilst on the outside all seems prim and proper, a more sinister secret lies just beneath the surface. Sebastian is in fact a demon bound by a contract with the young count; he will loyally serve and fight for him in return for his soul.

Both of these anime are drawn in a similar way.  Also there is this motif of fate that is reoccurring in both of these, explaining how the protagonists cannot avoid their destiny.

Both animes have great stories and will make you cry. Very touching anime, and you certainly won't regret watching them rather you are male or female. Also there is the similarity between Sebastien and Kaname which is striking. Both are loal kind and sexy, although one is a demon and another a vampire. I certainly recommend watching them both.

dalyjarose

The similarity to me is the animation and the fact that there are dark tones and a serious plot with comedy interspersed throughout each episode. They feel kind of related (even though one is about a demon butler and the other is about vampires in high school).

Rosario to Vampire

Rosario to Vampire

Fifteen-year-old Tsukune Aono is average in every way; he has no hobbies, less-than-stellar grades and he's even flunked his high school entrance exam. His parents have managed to enroll him in a school, but it's no ordinary school! Tsukune will be attending the Youkai Academy, a place where monsters learn how to co-exist with humans! As the werewolves, vampires, witches and other monsters are required to retain their human forms, Tsukune - the lone human - is able to avoid their bloodthirsty gazes. However, he quickly attracts the attention of a number of devilish beauties including the vampire Moka, a busty succubus and even a young witch! It seems Tsukune's average life isn't so average anymore!

Both of these are great series about vampires and school. Both animes also have a vampire and a human who like each other. Also, the one that is the vampire frequently saves the human from dangerous situations.

Rosario to Vampire is a bit of a lighter series than Vampire Knight.

Spectrum

Vampire Knight same as Rosario to Vampire is about same topic. Vampire Knight is a little bit more "darken" but definitely is not horror where Rosario to Vampire is more like a comedy. Animation is very nice in both anime. So far it was intersting, the plot thickens and builds with a good portion of suspense.

ishmael1991

They are both abour vampires and romance, but one is seinen and the other is shojo. Still if you love vampires then you will enjy both series

Vampire Knight has a lot more romance than Hakuouki, but they both have one girl surrounded by tough, good-looking guys. Both are serious and have very little comedy. So if you liked the darker setting of Vampire Knight and are looking for some good eye candy, Hakuouki just might be your fix.

Yulia

Both anime are targeted towards a female audience and have a reverse harem, bishounen characters and a fair amount of action and bloody violence. While Vampire Knight has vampires and Hakuōki Shinsengumi Kitan has demons, the main characters (Yuki and Chizuru) are both in a similar situation by being surrounded by them.

Both are violent, have vampires (though Tsukihimie doesn't have as many) as well as other supernatural elements, and deal with characters who have significant internal conflicts as well as mysterious and not fully explained pasts.

wolfangel87

With mystery surrounding the vampire clans in both Vampire Knights and Lunar Legend Tsukihime the characters past reveal significant conflicts regarding their current situations.  With the revelation of these mysteries unfolding, their lives will never be the same again.

Shiki

Shiki

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?

Aphroditexx

Vampires, unanswered love and young students dropped in the middle of this mess. While Shiki is more moved by the horror element of the anime than the romance side, Vampire Knight fans wont be disappointed watching this. Megumi may not have the same appeal the Night Class has, but she certainly is out of this world.

nalbuque

Main reason is both amines’ have a conflicting view weather Vampires are good, evil and just miss understood creatures. In some way the anime is two different sides to the same coin.
