This is a follow-up to the first six episodes of Rosario and the Vampire Slayer. Feel free to continue reading the original article after finishing 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. Without realizing it, he enters the school, which turns out to be a Youkai boarding school! He meets the campus’ most stunning girl, Moka Akashiya. Later, when Tsukune meets numerous women who are in fact supernatural beings, he finds himself in a love triangle with several of them, all of whom want his heart. One small detail: Moka is, in fact, a vamp. 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 far from courageous. He desperately wants to tell the girl of his dreams, Haruna Sairenji, how he feels about her… Finally, to make matters worse for him, a girl bursts into his bathroom, naked as a sack of potatoes. Her name is Lala Satalin Deviluke, and she is the princess who will succeed her father as king when he passes away. As a result, she chooses to marry Rito instead of her political fiancé in order to avoid her father and the arranged marriage. 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. What will become of him?
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. Let’s get to the heart of the matter now that we’ve passed the physical realm. 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. Japan is now at the forefront of technological innovation and has begun to integrate non-humans into society. They must, however, coexist with humans. Since she was brought to live with him after an unfortunate accident, he’s had an influx of new non-human species monsters move in. The girls are suddenly smitten with him and clamoring for… well, a little more of him. There is, however, a total ban on all forms of sexual activity until these non-humans can get married in order to live with us. If you give that monster girl a ring, she’ll 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. Even more reason for Rosario to Vampire fans to enjoy Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou: all the other girls are from a different race/species and they are pursuing an average protagonist. To boot, the heavy ecchi scenes in both series help a lot. 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 a misunderstanding. She’d be forced to leave school if anyone found out. They become friends after Asahi promises to keep her secret safe. As a result, he is reluctant to let go of her. 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? Ultimately, this rom-com will be decided in the end!
Fortunately, both Rosario to Vampire and Jitsu wa Watashi wa feature a vampire woman as the main character, as well as a character who is just average. Despite this, the laughter is nonstop. 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.
Unfortunately for Minato Sahashi, who is both bright and terrible at tests, he has yet again failed the college entrance exams. With nowhere else to turn, a woman literally falls into his lap one day. Musubi is a supernatural alien with extraordinary abilities. “Sekirei” is the term used to describe her. Because of the Ashikabi gene, she can awaken his hidden abilities just by kissing him, which is exactly what she does. The two form a bond, and now Minato is forced to assist Musubi in his battles in the world of Sekirei… but there is 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. Like Tsukune, girls start appearing around Minato and developing feelings for him. There is a difference in race between the girls in Rosario to Vampire and the girls in Sekirei, who all have supernatural abilities. As well as the seemingly ordinary main character being protected by these super powerful girls, fighting occurs 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. More and more of her body’s production affects her, and she begins to show anemia symptoms. In other words, 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. After wiping the memories of the “victims,” her older brother Ren offers to help her. Her life is perfect up until a new student transfers into her class. As he grows more concerned, she notices that her blood… is behaving strangely towards Kenta?
A common theme in both R+V and Karin is the inclusion of romcoms featuring vampire main women and stereotypically uninteresting male leads. Tsukune and Kenta, the two main male characters, are an obvious choice for Karin and Moka to suck blood from. 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 this 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, even though he’s not the most eager, he ends up being 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. Otherworldly beings are a topic of discussion at both schools, and the students are left in what appears to be an unexpectedly unsupervised environment. For example, there are cool girls, perky girls and even jealous girls in both series’ casts of characters. The main difference between the two is that Akuto will grow up to be a super-strong king, whereas Tsukune is a simple young man. As a result, don’t forget about it!
