Top 20 Romantic Anime With Vampires with Great Plot (Based on IMDb)

We have seen Vampire related stories in the form of Live Action Series such as Twilight or Vampire Diaries. But generally, we made an observation that Vampire related are sadly underrated. Only a few of the series made it popular such as Bakemonogatari or Nobelese, a Korean Manhwa.

Even super popular manga like Jojo’s Bizzare Adventure has the Vampire concept in it, but it was an action genre. This makes fans curious whether any vampire-related animes have a central theme of Romance.

As we all know, Rom-Com is generally liked by many fans and is pretty popular. So, in this article, we are going to discuss “Top 20 Romantic Anime with Vampires with Great Plot”.
