Angel Sanctuary & Vampire Knight
A romance with mystery, supernatural and dark atmosphere which is familiar to each other. Both are fantastic mangas with deep characters and beautiful melancholia.
for some odd reason it makes sense to put these two together so well, trust me, not listing any spoilers, but if you like taboo story lines then you're in a treat with both of these.

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.

Can Yuki finally find the place he truly belongs, and just why is Zess so protective over the young boy?
If you like beautiful illustrations and powerful, lovable characters Vampire knight and Betrayal know my name are right for you. Even though both are supernatural (one with vampires, the latter with superpowered guardians), their characters both have flaws that give them personalities that shape the plot of the series. Also, both have plots that make you want to read more and the main protagonist always wants to help others. There are little romances and villains, too.
Luka/Zess is similar to Kaname - beautiful, powerful and not exactly human. Swap Vampires for Demons and you're pretty much there
Chiyuki is a young girl with a terminal disease. Near death, she meets a vampire named Touya and blackmails him into spending time with her; however, he doesn't drink blood because if he took a blood partner the partner would die long before him and he doesn't want to get hurt. When Chiyuki is dying he saves her life by having her drink some of his blood, because he feels even being with her for a little longer will be enough. She returns to school and forces Touya to join her there, where they discover that one of their classmates is a werewolf who is ashamed of being a monster. Both of them slowly become closer to Chiyuki because of her warmth, her will to live, and her non-judgmental love which heals the wounds from their pasts.

For some reason the first thing that struck me between Vampire Knight and the series Hakushaku to Yousei is the hierarchy structure set for the for the characters and the aristocracy that it revolves around making some of the characters arrogant to the extreme. The supernatural ties of the series brings out the historical feeling in the characters.
