Yuki Cross' earliest memory is of snow and blood - she was attacked by a vampire only to be rescued by another. Ten years later and Yuki has been adopted by the headmaster of the prestigious Cross Academy. This school is unique in that it consists of 2 classes - a Day Class and a Night Class. The Night Class is made up of vampires led by Yuki's rescuer all those years ago, Kaname Kuran. Together with Zero Kiryu, a childhood friend who despises everything to do with vampires since his family was murdered, Yuki must serve as a Guardian of the school to keep the two classes separated. Secrets lie beneath a peaceful exterior and not everything is as it seems, as Yuki learns the truth about Kaname, Zero and her own forgotten past.
Misao Harada has always been able to see strange creatures that are invisible to everyone else. Living as a regular high school girl, the teen wants a boyfriend more than anything, so when her first love, Kyou, moves back into the house next door it seems her wish will come true. However, Kyou is in fact a Tengu who has returned to fulfil their childhood promise and by taking Misao as his bride his tribe will gain tremendous prosperity.

In Kyou’s relentless pursuit to protect Misao and win her over he has begun working as her new homeroom teacher in order to best protect her. Now with demons attacking her at every turn, and a fox spirit named Shuuhei also vying for her hand in marriage, can Misao really resist Kyou’s charms forever, but does the handsome tengu really love her or is he simply after the benefits their union would bring?
Black Bird also has some facts in it which can remain you of vampires and both manga are a bit "male harem"-a-like. So you may like them both? :)
Black Bird and Vampire Knight both reminded me of the Twilight series, but with a japanese twist. If you the basic plot: a normal girl gets swept up into a conflict involving supernatural creatures and falls in love with a controlling bishounen, then either of these series should make you squee.
They both have supernatural beings and a male harem.. sounds like it. Well they both are kinda alike.. a girl falling in love with a "demon" In vampire knight.. a pureblood vampire and in black bird a tengu (black crow demon)
These two manga are remarkably simliar in characters, style, story, drama and romance. Junketsu has less characters then Vampire Knight and has a lit bit more nudity (though nothing that would make it mature) but both are very similar.
the tone, emotions, and characters are quite similar to VK. Even purebloods are included. The only difference is that Junketsu + Kareshi has angels, 7 deadly sins, etc.
Peronally, I believe that Vampire Knight pulls off the "serious vampire love interest" way better than Pureblood+Boyfriend. In fact, the latter seems to be a cheap copy. But if you're into a "dark" male lead who's also a vampire, and a pure, positive heroine, then try either or.
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?
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 read.
both DVB and VK are action packed vampire mangas with romance stories covered in happiness, tragedy and blood. While VK tends to be orientated to a shoujo audience, DVB is more suitable for a male audience mainly because of its nudity and mature themes. However both mangas are very much alike so if you liked one for sure you will like the other one as well.

Vampire Knight and MeruPuri are both by the same mangaka and both have amazing storylines with alot of romance and magic. Though MeruPuri has a lighter feeling to it than Vampire Knight, each has its own beauty whether it is light- or blood-covered.
Yeah I totally agree with this recommendation. Both series are quite similar in many different ways.
With mystery surrounding the vampire clans in both Vampire Knights and 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.
Tsukihime and Vampire Knight are mystery stories involving vampires. In both of them the past of the main protagonists are explored revealing more and more shocking and surprizing stuff, making both of them very similar. If you liked one for sure you will enjoy the other one as well.
