Vampires are mysterious immortal beings that are often associated with extraordinary beauty. As shoujo manga enthusiasts, nothing is more alluring than good-looking protagonists that will live forever, it’s simply too appealing. This list contains 5 shoujo mangas with vampire protagonists that you need to take a look at.
#5 Hana to Akuma
Hana to Akuma is a 58 chapter manga by Oto Hisamu.
Fifteen years ago, Vivi, a demon, decided to leave the demon realm and come to the human world. One year after arriving in the human world, he finds an abandoned baby, Hana, and on a whim decided to keep it. Since then, he has lived together with her.
The manga is very fun to read, thanks to Hana’s very loveable character. Even though they portrayed Vivi as a demon, he drinks blood to survive, which makes him a vampire demon somehow. The relationship between Vivi and Hana is undeniably very adorable. Even though at first Hana’s age and the huge age difference between the two of them might make you skeptical, you can’t help but find them cute as the story advances.
Untouchable is a 139 chapter webtoon by Massstar.
Modern-day vampires absorb energy from humans by touching them instead of drinking their blood. The story follows Sia Lee, a young vampire, as she desperately tries to touch her neighbor, Jiho, who is unfortunately for her, a germaphobe.
The idea of vampires evolving and adjusting to the new society is quite appealing, even though it’s still a mystery how one could evolve from drinking blood to touching a human to survive. The idea of a young vampire trying to approach and touch a human with OCD is very interesting. Besides, Sia Lee is the definition of beauty. She is by far the best female vampire character we’ve come across.
3# Orange Marmalade
Orange Marmalade is a 120 chapter webtoon by Seok woo.
Nowadays, humans are no longer afraid of Vampires. Both species signed a peace treaty. However, it doesn’t stop humans from discriminating against Vampires. Baek Mari, the story’s protagonist, struggles to hide her identity and lead a normal life. Can she keep her secret hidden as she falls in love with a popular boy who hates vampires?
The character of Baek Mari is very relatable and easy to sympathise with, making the story even more enjoyable. The art noticeably improves with each chapter, so do not expect the best quality in the very first chapter. The webtoon has a korean drama adaptation that we also recommend watching. Said drama changed the storyline and ending a little, making Orange Marmalade a better version of its original self.
#2 Karin Chibi Vampire
Karin is a young vampire who was born different. Karin experiences intense bleeding from her nose. We’re talking about gushers, meaning she has blood to spare. Instead of drinking blood from humans, she gives her blood to them! If done right, the experience can be positive and beneficial to the victim as much as the vampire. The problem is, Karin is clumsy and never seems to do things right.
Apart from being the typical clumsy cute shoujo protagonist, Karin is very lovable. The sole fact that she is a vampire incapable of drinking blood already makes her special. The manga is mostly a high school romance comedy with a sprinkle of supernatural and mystery.
#1 Vampire Knight
Vampire Knight is a 91 chapter manga by Matsuri Hino
Two groups of students attend Cross Academy: The Day class and the Night Class. At twilight, when the students of the Day class return to their dorm, they cross paths with the Night class on their way to school. Yuki Cross and Zero Kiryu are the guardians of the school, their purpose is to protect the Day class from the Academy’s dark secret: the Night class is full of vampires.
Vampire Knight is the whole package. A mixture of school life romance and comedy with a rich story full of mystery and action.The night class being full of good looking students is just a bonus! The story is well made and keeps getting better with each chapter and the art style is one of the prettiest in this list. Vampire Knight might as well be considered a classic that everyone needs to read at some point.
