In the modern world most people live ignorant of the supernatural. Vampires exist with superhuman strength, speed and regeneration; they can control humans with a gaze and control their will for eternity by feeding them blood. Kuroe is a man whose calling is vanquishing vampires. His will, the legacy of his name and a vampire's curse give him the strength to hunt the one responsible for the loss of his sister. Yet he lives to atone for his mistakes. Misaki is a new vampire who was recently turned after Kuroe was unable to protect her. Now she lives under his, protection and in passing they calm each other's wounded hearts. Under reoccurring vampire threats the two grow closer together and develop an enticing bond.
Both Kurenai and Blood Alone feature a male lead who is a private investigator of sorts. Both of them could be described as badass nice guys. Probably because of that both of them are rather popular with the opposite sex. As it happens both of those series also feature a younger girl who is in love with the male lead and whom the male lead takes care of. If you liked one of those two series than the other one might be worth a try too.
Mina Tepes is the ruler of all vampires who has just moved to Japan. After the Tokyo government granted her an offshore island known as the "Bund" for paying off the entirety of the country’s debt, Mina has decided to set up a special vampire district in the middle of the city’s harbour, a choice that’s far from popular. With many people after her life, she is in need of a full-time servant and bodyguard and her choice is Akira Kaburagi, a member of the respected Earth Clan. Now Akira must work to keep Mina safe and attend to her every whim as the young princess attends school. But what exactly are Mina’s motives for setting up the vampire district in the first place, and just who is behind all the attempts upon her life?
Both of those manga feature a badass teenager and his loli mistress as the main characters (read it as you see fit ;) ). Dance in the Vampire Bund has more romance going on while Kurenai has a harem in place of romance. Anyway, those series do resemble each other, so if you liked one of them you might want to give the other one a try.
When I was reading Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo I couldn't help but think how the dormitory and its weird inhabitants remind me of the manga Kurenai. In Kurenai the male lead also has weirdos for neighbors and friends just lake the male lead from Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo. Obviously he has to deal with them everyday (even if he'd rather not). If you found that part interesting in one of those two manga, you might want to give the other one a try.
The main reason for this recommendation is the fact that male lead in both series gets a loli dumped on him and now has to take care of her. The guy actually proves himself to be not half bad at it and somehow it lead to the girl becoming romantically interested in him. If you're familiar with one of those manga, then what I wrote above should be enough to spark your interest or turn you off.
