This is an update to the original 6 anime like Rosario to Vampire. When you are done reading this one, feel free to read the original one underneath!

Rosario to Vampire hit airwaves back in 2008 but it is still a good fan staple. Do you know why? Because it has got a fantastic mix of high school life, ecchi, fantasy, romance, and supernatural aspects that animators have not been able to recreate since!

Tsukune Aono is a derp of a protagonist, whose parents enroll him in Youkai Academy since he cannot get in anywhere else. He walks into the school not realizing that it’s actually a school for all kinds of Youkai! He runs into Moka Akashiya who is the most beautiful girl on campus. Then coming across a wide variety of girls, who are all actually supernatural beings, they begin to pine after his heart but Tsukune is all about his relationship with Moka. Just one small thing, Moka is actually a vampire! It seems like Tsukune has a lot to learn before he could date her or any of the other girls around him.

Let’s take a look at six similar anime that all share similar elements in one way or another to Rosario to Vampire!

Similar Anime to Rosario + Vampire (Rosario to Vampire)

1. To LOVE-Ru

  • Episodes: 26
  • Aired: April 2008 – September 2008

To LOVE-Ru follows Rito Yuuki who is not really a brave person. He wants to confess his feelings to the girl of his dreams Haruna Sairenji but can’t… Then as if things could not become more difficult for him, a girl comes crashing into his bathroom butt-naked. She is Lala Satalin Deviluke and is a princess next in line to the throne. She is running away from her forced political fiancée and decides that she would rather marry Rito in order to escape her father and her arranged fiancée. Lala is not the only one that Rito finds on his hands as a gaggle of girls appear to fight off him confessing to Haruna. Who will he end up with!

For those of you who are more inclined to choose an anime based on looks, both Lala and Moka have quite the bouncy chest, as well as, sporting pink hair. Now that we have passed the physical realm, let's get into the meat of the situation. Both Lala and Moka actually sport the same personalities as well as the family baggage that Rito and Tsukune have to deal with and found out later. Both series also feature harem comedies with a nice bout of ecchi mixed in as well. Supernatural elements abound as well with Lala being from outer space and Moka being a vampire along with a gaggle of unique characters all after the MC. It goes without saying as well, but both main characters start out fairly dense as well as is standard in most ecchi harem comedies.

2. Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou (Everyday Life with Monster Girls)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: July 2015 – September 2015

Let’s jump right into a parallel world of ours where Kimihito Kurusu lives. Japan is now on the cutting edge of technology and has begun to mix non-humans in with humans. However, they have to live with humans. Due to an accident, Miia, a lamia, has now come to live with him and with her, brings a crowd of other non-human species monsters with her?! Suddenly, the girls are fawning over him and wanting… well a little bit more of him. However, all sexual acts are banned via the permission to allow these non-humans to live with humans unless they can get married. Put a ring on it, and that monster girl can have her way with you forever! Sounds like a dream right? Well, all of these non-human girls have one goal in mind, to get married to Kimihito!

Right off the bat, we have some good ecchi harem matchups between these two shows. Then compound that with the fact that it is all girls of another race/species going after a rather average protagonist and it’s easy to see why fans of Rosario to Vampire like Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou! Heavy ecchi scenes to boot really help as well between the two series. All the girls in both series are aiming for the love of the main character while there is a clear path as well for the MC and one of the girls. That, however, does not stop him from enjoying what he has! Check out the PV below to learn more.

3. Jitsu wa Watashi wa (Actually, I am...)

  • Episodes: 13
  • Aired: July 2015 – September 2015

The sun shines one day as Asahi Kuromine goes into a classroom to confess his feelings to the girl of his affections, Youko Shiragami. However, through a blunder, he finds out that she is a vampire! If anyone knows, she would have to quit the school. Promising to keep her secret safe, they become friends and Asahi does not want to let go of her. One problem, though, Asahi cannot keep secrets well. As if things could not get worse, it appears that not only are there vampires in the school, but there are also other creatures of unique powers that want to bring destruction upon the earth and more! Can Asahi keep his mouth shut so as not to have to say goodbye to Youko? Time will tell in this romcom!

Thankfully both Rosario to Vampire and Jitsu wa Watashi wa both have a vampire female lead along with a fairly average male character. The comedy never stops, though. While Rosario to vampire gives you ecchi comedy, Jitsu wa Watashi wa doubles down the super special head of the school Akane Koumoto. The cooking episode will leave you in tears! There are a variety of other supernatural beings in the series as well was while Tsukune masquerades as a non-human, Youko has to pass as one! Of course, as well there are harems in both that while the main male character is only pursuing the main female character, other female characters are not about to sit around and let it happen!

4. Sekirei

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: July 2008 – September 2008

Somehow brilliant, yet bad at testing, Minato Sahashi has once again failed the entrance exams for college. With nowhere to go, one day a woman falls out of the sky, literally, and into his lap. Musubi, as she is called, is a supernatural alien with superpowers. She is known as a “Sekirei”. There is more than meets the eye as by kissing him, she can awaken his latent powers via the Ashikabi gene; so she does! A bond is formed and Minato now has to help Musubi fight in the world of Sekirei however… more is at stake than he realizes.

Much like how Tsukune is whirled into another world for the Youkai Academy, Minato is taken to the plane of the Sekirei. Girls start appearing around Minato and becoming attracted to him much like how Tsukune is set up. Both have some sort of supernatural powers where the girls in Rosario to Vampire are all supernatural beings but the girls of Sekirei are all of a different race! Fighting is something that does occur in both series as well as this seemingly ordinary main character being protected by these super powerful girls! Of course as well ecchi abounds! Did you really think a kiss was where it was all going to stop? Check out the trailer below!

5. Karin (Chibi Vampire)

  • Episodes: 24
  • Aired: November 2005 – May 2006

Karin has what would be called reverse-anemia. The more that her body produces, the more she is affected and starts to exhibit the symptoms of anemia. So what she does, is that with the help of her supernatural family, oh yeah hey, Karin is a vampire, she actually gives blood to others. When she does this, though, they start to become more upbeat and happy than they were previously. Her older brother Ren, who is a bit of a pig, helps her by wiping the memories of the “victims.” Everything is going smoothly until one day when a new boy transfers into her class. As he begins to suspect something is awry, she finds that her blood is… acting more differently towards Kenta?

Both R+V and Karin also feature romcoms with vampire main female characters and seemingly bland male characters. Both Karin and Moka need to suck blood from someone so they might as well do it with the male main character aka Tsukune and Kenta. Both shows as well feature a wide variety of supernatural characters. Naturally of course, the series both feature a human/nonhuman couple. Interspecies love for everyone!


6. Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou (Demon King Daimao)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: April 2010 – June 2010

Akuto Sai enrolls at a new school. This school is called the Constant Magic Academy. After a few events, he finds out that he’s way better than the rest of the students; he actually has incredible magical powers and is fated to become the Demon King! While he may not be the most willing, it turns out to be a total panty dropper for the girls in the school! A wide variety of girls suddenly begins going after Akuto with all of their might. How long can he hold out before he gives in?

Right as soon as the girls find out, the ecchi and fanservice are dialed up. The same is true in Rosario to Vampire. Both schools also deal with Supernatural beings and school leaves the students in what seems like a surprisingly unsupervised environment. The girls in both series feature a wide variety of personalities such as the cool one, the perky one, the jealous one and more! The difference between these two would be the face that Akuto is destined to be a super powerful king while Tsukune is fairly plain. That being said, it is not one to miss!

I started with the manga first, when I read the manga I was surprised to see the that the monsters in the anime were based off legendary and mythical creatures, since the writer has interest in mythical creatures.

It got me interested, wanting me to do further research about the newly introduce monster the main character encounters in every new episode.
