This is a follow-up to the first six episodes of Rosario and the Vampire Slayer. Keep scrolling down to see the original article after you’ve finished this one.
Although Rosario to Vampire hit the airwaves in 2008, it remains a popular choice among fans. Do you have any idea why this is so? Why? Because no other animated film has managed to capture the perfect blend of high school life and ecchi, while also including elements of fantasy, romance, and the supernatural!
When Tsukune Aono’s parents can’t get him into any other schools, they enroll him in Youkai Academy. He enters the school without realizing it is a Youkai school for all varieties! He meets the campus’ most stunning girl, Moka Akashiya. Upon meeting a wide range of girls, all of whom are actually supernatural beings, they begin to lust after his heart, but Tsukune is solely focused on his relationship with Moka and their mutual attraction to her. Let me just point out that Moka is actually a vampiric creature. Tsukune appears to have a lot of catching up to do before he is ready to date any of the other women in his life.
Check out these six similar anime to Rosario to Vampire, all of which have elements in common.
1. To LOVE-Ru
LOVE-Ru follows Rito Yuuki, a character who is anything but brave. He desperately wants to tell the girl of his dreams, Haruna Sairenji, how he feels about her… Just when he thought things couldn’t get any worse for him, a girl shows up in his bathroom while still wearing her underwear. Her name is Lala Satalin Deviluke, and she is the princess who will succeed her father as king when he passes away. She’s trying to get away from her father and her arranged marriage, so she chooses to marry Rito instead of her political fiancé. Rito has more than just Lala to contend with when he confesses to Haruna, as a swarm of girls appear to be fighting him off. Who knows where this will lead!
If looks are what you’re looking for in an anime, both Lala and Moka have them. They also both have pink hair and a bouncy chest. Now that the physical realm has been traversed, it’s time to get to the heart of the matter. Rito and Tsukune later learn that Lala and Moka share the same personalities and baggage from their families. Both series have a fair share of harem comedies, as well as a healthy dose of ecchi. Otherworldly elements abound, with Lala hailing from the stars and Moka a vampire, as well as a slew of interesting characters chasing the MC. It should go without saying, but both of the main characters begin the film with a lot of baggage, as is typical of ecchi harem comedies in general.
2. Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou (Everyday Life with Monster Girls)
Let’s go to a world where Kimihito Kurusu lives in a parallel universe to our own. There are non-humans living alongside humans in Japan now because the country is on the cutting edge of technology. However, they are compelled to coexist with people. Miia, a lamia, moved in with him after an accident brought a slew of other non-human species monsters with her? The girls are suddenly smitten with him and clamoring for… well, a little more of him. The only way these non-humans can live with humans is if they can get married, in which case all sexual acts are prohibited. If you put a ring on it, that monster girl will have free reign over you for the rest of her life. It sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Getting married to Kimihito is the ultimate goal for all of these alien women.
These two shows have some intriguing ecchi harem pairings right off the bat. Compound the fact that Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou’s protagonist is surrounded by girls of different races and species, and it’s easy to see why fans of Rosario to Vampire enjoy it so much! In between the two series, heavy ecchi scenes are a huge asset. Both series’ female leads are vying for the affections of the male lead, but there is a clear path for the MC and one of the female leads as well. Even so, it doesn’t deter him from making the most of what he has! To learn more, take a look at the video below.
3. Jitsu wa Watashi wa (Actually, I am…)
Asahi Kuromine enters a classroom to confess his feelings to Youko Shiragami, the girl of his dreams. The sun is shining. However, he discovers that she is a vampire due to an oversight! If anyone finds out, she’ll be forced to leave the school. They become friends after Asahi makes a promise to keep her secret safe. One problem, however: Asahi has a poor track record of secrecy preservation. And just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse, it turns out the school is home to more than vampires. There are creatures with unique abilities plotting to devastate the planet. How long can Asahi hold his tongue in order to avoid saying his final goodbyes to Youko? In this romantic comedy, only time will tell!
Thanks to the inclusion of a female vampire lead in both Rosario to Vampire and Jitsu wa Watashi wa, both films feature a strong male lead. But the laughter never ends. The ecchi comedy of Rosario to Vampire contrasts sharply with Jitsu Wa Watashi Wa’s focus on the school’s enigmatic headmaster, Akane Koumoto, in the latter. You’ll cry during the cooking segment! When it comes to supernatural creatures in the series, Tsukune can pass as a human, but Youko can’t! Other women in the harems are not going to sit around and do nothing while the main male character is pursuing the main female character.
Minato Sahashi, who is brilliant but terrible at tests, has failed the college entrance exams for the second time in a row. With nowhere else to turn, a woman literally falls into his lap one day. An extraterrestrial with extraordinary abilities goes by the name of Musubi. She’s referred to as a “Sekirei” in Japan. Because of the Ashikabi gene, she can awaken his hidden abilities just by kissing him, which is exactly what she does. Because of their shared experience, Musubi asks Minato for help in the world of Sekirei… but there’s more at stake than he realizes.
Minato is transported to the Sekirei plane, similar to how Tsukune was whisked away to another world by the Youkai Academy. Tsukune’s setup is similar in that girls start showing up around Minato and becoming attracted to him as well. All of the girls in Rosario are vampires, but the girls in Sekirei are of a different race! Both have supernatural abilities. This seemingly ordinary main character is shielded from danger by these super strong women in both series. Of course, ecchi is in abundance as well. Did you really believe that a kiss would be the end of it? Here’s the trailer for you to enjoy!
5. Karin (Chibi Vampire)
Karin suffers from a condition known as reverse anemia. The more hemoglobin her body makes, the more anemia-like symptoms she develops. So what she does is that she gives blood to others with the help of her supernatural family, oh yeah, Karin is a vampire. They, on the other hand, become more upbeat and joyful as a result of her actions. Her pig-headed older brother Ren assists her by erasing the victims’ memories. When a new boy transfers into her class, everything seems to be going swimmingly for her. Her blood begins to behave differently towards Kenta as he grows suspicious of something is amiss.
There are also romcoms in R+V and Karin that feature a vampire main female character and a bland-looking male character. Both Karin and Moka require the use of a blood sucking device, so they may as well use Tsukune and Kenta, the male protagonists. There are numerous supernatural characters on both shows. Of course, a human/nonhuman couple is featured in both shows. Everyone benefits from interspecies romance!
6. Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou (Demon King Daimao)
Akuto Sai begins a new school year by enrolling in a new school. The Constant Magic Academy is the name of the school. In the course of a few events, he discovers that he is far superior to the other students in terms of magic ability and will one day become the Demon King! For the girls in the school, despite his reluctance, this is a total panty dropper! Suddenly, Akuto is being pursued ferociously by a wide range of females. Can he hold out for much longer before finally giving in?
The ecchi and fanservice begin as soon as the girls learn about it. Vampires in Rosario feel the same way. Students are left in an environment that appears to be surprisingly unsupervised at both schools, as both deal with supernatural beings. This is true for the female characters in both series as well. There are a wide range of personalities represented by these girls! When comparing these two, it’s clear that Akuto will grow up to be a super-strong king, while Tsukune will remain a simple village boy. As a result, don’t forget about it!
