    "Both Hellsing 1 and 2 are great but Hellsing Ultimate stepped up to the point that every episode feels like watching a movie. Hellsing Ultimate and Vampire Knight are both a must-watch!"

    "This is a Light Vampire-anime compared to other bloody and dark stories, It may be a little cliche but Blood Lad has a humorous appeal that will encourage you to keep watching 👍"


Did you know that vampires were once declared "fallacious fictions of human fantasy"? This was stated by Pope Benedict XIV amidst the plague that spread throughout Europe in ancient times. This plague was often attributed to vampires. The Hapsburg ruler Maria Theresa also condemned vampire beliefs as “superstition and fraud.” Even before, vampires didn’t start out so clearly defined. Scholars suspect that the modern conception of vampires evolved throughout Europe. These beliefs centered around the fear that the dead, once buried, could still harm the living. "Food for the Dead" author Michael Bell estimates that there are 60 known examples of anti-vampire rituals in America. This was during the 18th and 19th century in New England. These prove that even in the early stages of American history, vampires have been seen as existing creatures.

Today, the understanding of vampires is still vague. Pop culture has portrayed vampires to fit TV shows, books, video games, movies, and other franchises. On 2014, Dracula Untold was released. The movie moves away from the original storyline of Bram Stoker's 1897 novel. The film focuses on Dracula as Vlad the Impaler. Dracula Untold went on to gross $217 million worldwide. It is considered as one of the better adaptations of vampire movies

    "I'm so happy this is on Netflix! I bet you'll get hooked from the first episode. Season 1 and 2 was a blast and I think the fast-paced story and how the characters have developed is the best thing about this anime"

    "I have watched majority of the vampire anime on this list and I honestly think this should at least be on the top 3. I mean, c'mon the plot and the animations are really great. The story is a bit sad but strong and they managed to be consistent all throughout the 50 episodeds"
