Japan’s obsession with myths and legends and implementing creatures related to them in anime and manga is nothing new. Creators of popular series have been known for using various cultural aspects for source material inspired from eastern/western folklore and mythology. One of the most frequent myths that appear in any anime and manga is Vampire.
Vampires are a mysterious mythical species with an ambiguous origin found in Eastern European folklore and one of the well-known classic monsters of all time. A vampire is a usual trope in any entertainment medium that falls into the supernatural genre. But vampires in anime and manga have patented a different trend for being more than what a creature of darkness craving for blood should be.
Female vampire characters have managed to generate a small but extremely devoted fandom among anime fans. As a deadly but attractive symbolic plot device and a strong resemblance to a normal attractive human female, one can’t help but be awed by them. So here’s our list of the best Vampire Anime Girls.
