3- Rosario + Vampire (Rosario and Vampire)

Slice of Life Like Vampire Knight

Rosario + Vampire has a very interesting storyline complete with many references to other animes that you might know. In the very beginning I was already laughing due to the fact that the bus that the main character is being transported in reminded me so much of magic school bus. Don't let the comedy fool you though, the characters have a lot of depth to them and there is an amazing storyline underneath.

The story starts with the introduction of a boy named Tsukune who is accidental transferred to a school full of monsters and vampires. The problem is that he's neither a vampire or a monster, but when he meets a girl with flowing pink hair he thinks it might not be so bad after all.

5- Bakemonogatari

A Vampire Anime Filled with Mystery and Twist Like Vampire Knight

Bakemonogatari isn't your average anime and many times can leave you down right confused. Don't be surprised to see a lot of randomness mixed in with important details. It's meant to be a comedy, but it is made in such a way that it really draws you into the mystery and as a result you are constantly trying to piece together the truth behind said mystery.

The anime itself centers around a boy named Koyomi Araragi, who on his way up the stairs of his school catches a girl who had fallen from the top of the staircase. Immediately he notices that she is extremely light and wonders if she is in fact sick. He soon learns however that she is in fact a vampire and for this reason she has no physical weight.

      @Kalafina: I agree the manga is a lot better when it comes to the character development. The second season does a better job, but I really think the first and second needed about 24 episodes. A third season is supposedly in the works.

      Rosario + Vampire. It's so hilarious in its own way although anime Tsukune is totally a washed-out manga version. He is so much more amazing in the manga and you actually get to know him as a character instead of a quick run-through on screen.
