One of the oldest and most popular legends across many different countries and cultures, the vampire is used both as a symbolism of power, immortality and sexuality. Traditionally a staple of horror stories, nightmares and the occult, vampire characters have also found a place as a romantic fantasy in modern media. For many viewers, few characters can be as seductive, charming and simultaneously terrifying as the vampire girl.

Yuuki and Zero act as guardians, protecting the secrets of the Night Class and the safety of the ignorant day class.
Rima Touya is one such member of this Night Class, the most diminutive in stature and also the youngest member of the class.

The school is on an island named Tamatsu Island off-shore from mainland Japan, and the only way to get there is by boat. Soon after transferring, he discovers that one of the student in the class next door to his, Erika Sendou, is in fact a type of vampire.
As you can expect from a harem anime adaptation of an eroge visual novel, Erika Sendou is at the peak of moe powers. Wide eyed, beautiful and with an air of innocence to appeal to otaku’s everywhere, Erika is a worthy addition to this vampire gilr list for visual and romantic reasons alone. Personality wise she is in fact rather driven and once she has her sights set on a target she will go to any length to achieve it. Erika is also capable of touching moments beyond her more styling, obviously uncomfortable with her family history and her own vampiric qualities, she eventually decides she would like to forgo her vampire life for a chance of a normal love life with protagonist Kohei.

For an all powerful vampire, Himea has quite a self esteem problem, something many of us can relate too.

Now, on the eve of the landmark press conference announcing the existence of vampires to the world, terrorists and rival factions are plotting to assassinate Mina Tepes before she has a chance to make her world-changing announcement.
Mina Tepes takes on the appearance of a cute, haughty pre-pubescent girl despite being centuries old. Dance in the Vampire Bund does an excellent job of encapsulating the time span of a vampire’s life and particularly in Mina’s long struggle to protect her fellow vampires. As the Queen of vampires she has a strong feeling of obligation towards her own kind, feeling as if a mother to all vampires everywhere. Her iron will to provide a safe haven for vampires across the world is what makes Mina Tepes stand out from other girl vampire characters.

This initial anime incarnation of the Hellsing legend was written largely independently of the manga and therefore focuses on offering a more visceral and visual spectacle with a love for graphic violence, style and sex appeal.
Few female anime vampires can encapsulate all these qualities than Seras Victoria, the legendary vampire Alucard’s trusted partner. At first reserved in using her powers, certain event in particular causes her to fully unleash in gut wrenching glory. Seras is in fact far more fleshed out in this anime adaptation than in the original manga and in many ways is the central focal point rather than her more historically illustrious companion Alucard. Her search for answers is intense and captivating, as is Seras and Alucards methods of dealing with their enemies in order to obtain them. Seras is the epitome of cool when it comes to a vampire girl representation.

While beautiful, shy and incredibly popular, if the rosary on her chest is removed, her other self emerges, an all powerful, vengeful master vampire!
Moka is an excellent Jekyll and Hyde style character, her outer self is a high school moe princess whom all the guys idolise and long for. Her secret inner self, is a visually darker and more aggressive tsundere vampire girl persona. These are two separate characters as vampire Moka even says to Tsukune ‘be kind to the other Moka’. The true key to Moka’s character is that in fact the outer version that everyone knows and loves is in fact false and is merely a method to protect herself until she finally meets someone that can love her truly.

What follows is a romantic vampire harem comedy that has been a smash hit in Japan this past summer season.
It’s easy to see why Kuromine fell in love with Youko Shiragime, she is undeniably cute and also has a level of vulnerability that is often absent from vampire girl characters. Youko is desperate to maintain her human identity as she promised her vampiric father and human mother.

However Shinobu Oshino is certainly not all she seems. She was formerly the powerful 500-year-old vampire, coming from a royal bloodline, named Kiss-Shot Acerola-Orion Heart-Under-Blade. Quite the impressive name and title, which she fully justifies in terms of the power she possesses. According to a number of manga adaptations, Shinobu was said to have the purest heart in the world, so much so that it caused her parents and many followers to commit suicide as they felt they had reached the pinnacle of their existence.

A rich character arc and excellent interaction with Koyomi make Sinobu an excellent anime vampire girl.

They are actually immortals who feed on the blood of the living. The second group is an organization known as the "Red Shield," formed to track down these monsters and exterminate them. This is ostensibly a battle between two alterations on vampire mythology. Otonashi Saya is a high-school girl who lives a peaceful life with her family. The only problem is, she has no recollections of her life beyond that of the past year; however, a fated incident will lead to the restoration of her memories and of her vampire identity.
