Top 50 Best Vampire Anime Of All Time

top 50 best vampire anime of all time


Is there anyone who does not know about Vampires? Vampires have been a common part of most folklore stories and carry an aura of undefeatable horror.


The first instance of such a creature is dated back to Sumerian and Babylonian mythology which is used to call a spirit that rose out of a body that was not properly buried.


They are also mentioned in the Greek and Egyptian writings which describe them as blood-drinking creatures who seek vengeance.


Vampires, therefore, have been an important part of the horror genre in any media. In books, Count Dracula was immortalized.


Many such works have been made into anime series too. Here are the best vampire Anime as curated by ENTOIN.

If you’ve watched Vampire Knight, this is a must-watch. The realism in it is just marvelous and picturesque.


It has 12 series which first premiered in October 2015. 


This ranks on the top of this list purely because the story is very sophisticated.


The vampire world in this anime is akin to the human world. The tale begins with conflict and has the perfect ups and downs to keep you hooked on the screen till its end.


Kureto Hiiragi hears that a large legion of vampires will be coming to Nagoya. They were preparing for their raids on the Imperial Demon Army’s Base located in Tokyo.


They were led by Guren Ichinose. Yuuichirou’s team is one of the groups tasked to trace and eliminate the vampire elites and send them to hell forever.


The members of the elite Shinoa squad are meanwhile mastering their strategies and weapons. They are also improving their teamwork which comes with good coordination and effort.


Yuuichirou must gain strength soon, as he needs to slay the elites. Only this can help save his friend before he succumbs to the vampire of the Cursed Gear and dies a horrible death.


The emotional weight of this anime is a lot. It also has yaoi elements to it, which makes it a great piece for people who have a very niche desire with their anime.


Not only that, this show is appreciated for its banger opening as well, thus being a memorable show overall.

This premiered in April 2018 and had 13 episodes. 


This anime is a classic and a reference for a lot of filmmakers. The vampires here are of two types – the pure and the rogue-blooded ones.


Yuki, the lead character discovers this difference sooner as she got attacked and saved by a pure vampire.


She soon falls in love with one pure-blooded vampire and protects him. Her path reaches crossroads when she is facing an imminent dilemma.


Being torn apart between protecting a good vampire and handling a human being who does not understand it, nearly kills her.


Unknown to her, there are various other backstories to the good vampires. It makes it difficult for her to make a decision and proceed.


Her internal torment is the crux of this story. This ranks so high in this list because of the inclusion of subtle contexts and the deception used to thicken the plot.


This anime may seem like a typical vampire story at first. However, the moment you watch it completely, you will realize how far away you are from the truth.


The series is just beautiful in ways that you can’t imagine, making it a show that must be watched as soon as possible.

This 10-episode anime premiered first in February 2006.


This itself is proof of its success. It premiered in OVA covering the entire manga.

The friendly vampire and the cross-fighting between humans and vampires make this more interesting, therefore putting it higher in ranking.


The plot spills over Europe and Latin America, where travel and places make it exciting.


Integra the last of Hellsing’s family is the main protagonist of this anime. She leads the Royal Order of Protestant Knights and destroys vampires that have caused chaos all over the country.


Alucard, an original vampire is a loyal servant to her and protects her. An element of suspense is what drives this story ahead.

This was a 2005 action drama episode.


It was based on the manga series under the same name. Trinity Blood ranks higher than Castlevania as it goes futuristic.


It’s easier to shape the future than recreate the past. The Armageddon theme puts its real emphasis on the background of such a plot.


It has prominent religious heads as characters. It has some Dan Brown kind of signatures in between where the Church faces a question of survival and then struggles to survive among the rifts between various groups.


Humans have built a new civilization on the ruins of the old one, after Armageddon (apocalyptic event).


There are two major races. One that returned from Mars is called ‘Methuselah’ and they have vampire-like abilities.


Another one is humans known as Terrans who remained on Earth to save human civilization.


The Vatican is a place where the church has its military base and they have military forces there, to save a human from methuselahs.


The Vatican is divided into many special interest groups, subgroups, and a lot of other secret societies.


The rise of Mankind is also opposed by a new player in this game- the demonic Vampires.


The series also features the 3rd type of species – a Cruznik. This is a breed that is neither man nor vampire.


This anime is a bit more on the underrated side of things. However, hardcore vampire anime fans are aware of the beauty and elegance that this anime has to offer.


And so, if you are someone who wants to enjoy some special stuff then this is the anime you should look forward to. 


They play a vital role in mankind’s struggle by joining them in the fight. So, Vampires lose their upper hand in this war.



5. Castlevania




This one ranks higher than Vampire Hunter D because of its storyline and emphasis on the vampire hunting aspect.


It revolves around the hunter who races against time to save a city from the scourge of vampirism.


It premiered in 2017. Lisa Tepes is the wife of Vlad Tepes and gets accused of practising witchcraft.


She is condemned and then burnt at the stake by a bishop. So Dracula declares war on Wallachia and unleashes an army of murderous vampires from hell.


Luckily, Trevor Belmont who is the last survivor of the Belmont clan is still there.


He agrees to fight them as he is also from a family famous for fighting vampires.


A lot of actions come with fewer consequences and some, pile up & then return to haunt you.


This anime is one such story that has the plot to enthral the audience and captivate them.


The involvement of witchcraft and the other medieval practices of unleashing curses make it a really scary plot.


The demonic creatures have been perfectly crafted to give the appeal of a particular type and they can never be replicated.


While this series is a bit doubtful towards being an anime, it does encompass all the elements that make an anime amazing.


Moreover, there’s no denying that the sleek animation of this IP is just gorgeous as we get to experience some insane visual portrayal through this.

Shiki is an adaptation of the horror novel of Fuyumi Ono. It premiered in July 2010 on TV.


It is beyond an average vampire horror anime. It depicts the tragic story of survival in a world where one cannot easily distinguish between good and evil.


Forsaken by God, Shikis (vampires call themselves so) have only their own will to survive as they have to constantly clash with paranoid human beings and hopeless village folk.


So Shiki goes on to discover the narrow boundary that separates a man from the demon.


Shiki is a serious vampire, unlike Karin. She is the type that strikes terror in the hearts of her comrades.


To tell the truth, it’s nothing special. The reason it ranks so high is because of the subtle injection of realism into it.


The portrayal of vampires with human characteristics in a dimension where both the creatures can meet and interact brings out the best of this genre.


The dark side of humanity is highlighted in this and it can be related to them, easily.


The vampires are forced to go beyond their regular calls of duty to ensure peace.
