SynopsisStaz is the vampire boss of a section of the demon world, but he has little interest in human blood. He's more infatuated with Japanese culture. When he learns that Yanagi Fuyumi, a Japanese teenage girl, accidentally wanders into the demon city, he jumps to the occasion. However, while Staz deals with an intruder on his turf, the oblivious Fuyumi is killed by a monster of the same type and becomes a wandering ghost. The disappointed Staz vows to Fuyumi that he will find a way to bring her back to life.

Characters & Voice Actors
Vampires in popular media is not anything new. However, in recent years there has been an influx of vampires in literature, movies, TV Shows, and yes, even anime. Which brings me to Blood Lad. An anime that, for all intents and purposes, plays like a pretty ordinary shounen series with one thing used to set itself apart from the rest: (yes! you guessed it!) its use of vampires (and werewolves). So does this blend of genres make for a good pairing or is it just another toothless endeavour... See what I did there.
The story of Blood Lad follows Staz... actually, the main story is pretty much covered in the synopsis, so there isn't much reason for me to regurgitate the same thing in different words. Long story short, Staz is an otaku vampire who is trying to turn Fuyumi back into a human. To achieve this, Staz has to overcome many obstacles and encounters a variety of characters. Blood Lad is only ten episodes long. Now the length of the series shouldn't be too important, however, in relation to the manga, ten episodes are used to cover around thirty chapters. This leads to a lot of the episodes feeling rushed, with very little time given to take in everything that takes place. Furthermore, due to the short length, many of the questions raised are left unanswered, coupled with an unsatisfying conclusion (not that it concludes anything), which ends just as it seems the real story is about to begin. The first few episodes are generally geared towards comedy with little real progression. The actual comedy isn't too bad and some moments are fairly funny, but hit or miss jokes aren't enough to make something entertaining. The series then shifts to more of a battle shounen with action, however, because of the rushed nature of Blood Lad, most of these fights are over within a few minutes.
The characters in Blood Lad are also underwhelming. Staz, who always seems to do the right and help out his friends, and has untapped power. The vampire part aside, he is pretty much the stereotypical shounen lead, even if the series makes it a point to keep telling us that Staz is bad. Fuyumi is the main female lead and is generally cast as a damsel in distress. Most of the time she is either captured or put in a situation of great peril and it's up to Staz to save her. Her biggest defining trait is her giant rack, which helps with her other role, fan service. She often wears skimpy outfits or is caught without clothes on. The main two characters are supplemented by a pretty diverse supporting cast, which I found more entertaining than the leads. Hydra Bell is essentially a bitch who always seems to screw Staz, yet despite this, she is afforded more development than either Staz or Fuyumi. Wolf was another noteworthy character who was portrayed as a cool guy and his back story sounded like it would be interesting... Too bad we are never given any. This isn't the anime's fault completely, but, because of the short run time, a lot of characters come and go very quickly. There are hints of back story for a few characters, but most of them are never given any time to be explored.
Without a doubt, Blood Lad's strongest area is its art. There are a wide range of colours used for all of the characters and settings and it makes it pleasant to look at. While it isn't the best looking series I've ever seen, it is still good. Most of the character designs are nice, with a lot of the characters having something to make them stand out. The only thing that really bothered me was how the main female characters were given giant chests. I found the Monster World being an urban city a little boring, but the inhabitants wearing urban clothing helped make them a little more interesting. It's a nice change from how most series tend to give characters one outfit. The animation quality is also decent. There are a few instances where they turn it up a notch, but this is mostly for action scenes, which rarely last more than two minutes.
The soundtrack in Blood Lad was okay. The opening and closing themes were all right and suited the series but were also pretty generic themes. The opening theme was slightly better as it set up the episodes quite well, and the visuals associated with it was actually relevant to the story of the anime. The rest of the soundtrack, while not being anything noteworthy, matched the mood of the scenes and worded well overall. I watched both the Japanese and English dubs, and, while I'd favour the Japanese track, the English one is solid in its own right. Xanthe Hyunh (being the pick of the English cast) really fit Fuyumi, as she captured Fuyumi's ditzy side perfectly. The other performances were solid too, but Bryce Papenbrook's Staz felt really boring and lifeless in places. I'm not sure if it was intended, but it really doesn't bode well when the protagonists voice is kind of annoying.
My opinion of Blood Lad is pretty negative, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy it completely. The early couple of episodes were mildly entertaining, and the jokes worked pretty well. The final two episodes were decent as well, but also frustrating at the same time, due to a lack of any real closure. We're are introduced to an extensive cast, but many of them lacked a decent back story. Staz, being the main character, wasn't particularly interesting, but the side characters were, even if most were given very little time to shine. It's in the middle episodes, where it feels very rushed, that most of the enjoyment is lost.
Overall, Blood Lad is a pretty underwhelming action/comedy series. The comedy side is all right in moderation but, due to how limited the action is, they end up having to fill time with more comedy which loses some of its appeal. The production values are solid, but nothing to blow anyone away. I would also like to mention, that if you are expecting to see traditional vampires, then you will be disappointed. Blood Lad lets you know from the outset that Staz doesn't do anything that a vampire does, he just looks like one. If I had to recommend this to someone, it would be to fans of Ao no Exorcist or Hataraku Maou-Sama!, as they are also action/comedies involving demons and other supernatural monsters. read more
Blood Lad is a classic example of taking a typical genre type and applying a currently popular twist on it; in this case you end up with yet another supernatural comedy Most titles that fall under this category are barely passable, but Blood Lad seemed to stand out from the rest of the crowd so I gave it a chance. I mean a vampire boss that is more interested in the otaku culture of Japan over fresh human blood… that doesn’t sound too unoriginal and downright unbearable, right? Well I’m going to tell you why I was neither right nor wrong in Blood Lad’s case.
The story follows Staz, a vampire boss of the demon world. He is feared across the demon world for being one of the most powerful bosses around and is also known for always accomplishing any goal he sets out for. So when Fuyumi, a young and big-breasted Japanese girl, accidentally makes it into the demon world and is killed, Staz decides he’ll help bring her back to life. Already two typical character types have been established: an overpowered hero and a big-breasted, clumsy heroine. So, if it sounds to you like a pretty typical hero saves damsel-in-distress story then you’re absolutely right—because that’s what it is. But that is not all it is. Let me explain.
One of the best things about this series was the comedy. It wasn’t forced, it wasn’t complicated, the references to Japanese culture were easy to understand for any anime fan, it was not overused and it was just downright hilarious. But the credibility of the series cannot be justified by just one aspect of the plot even if the show is prominently defined by this aspect—and that is where Blood Lad quickly let itself down. At first, the comedy held up the dialogue in a good way but it soon became hard to overlook the lacking parts of the rest of the dialogue. The comedy became repetitive and started to let down the dialogue and eventually the plot also. Where Blood Lad’s story went wrong is when they failed at mixing bad drama and action with good comedy—and then tried to patch up their faults with more good comedy. After this much repetition, the good comedy became bad comedy and the plot became even less comprehensible because of the overuse of unneeded gags.
Just like the story, Blood Lad’s art started out great but was relatively let down by a certain aspect. Prominently the most annoying part of Blood Lad’s art was the obscure and abstract changing of colours, backgrounds and art within certain scenes at an attempt to pair with the comedic side of the plot. At first it worked well but this soon enough, just like the use of comedy, became forced and overused. Apart from this annoyance, Blood Lad’s art was actually one of the series’ strong points. The animation was always fluid, the art was consistent, the character designs and the design of the Japan influenced ‘demon world’ worked very well together and over all the animation, when not overused, matched the mood of the series and the genre by having simple and somewhat goofy character designs like typical comedy series do but also mixing it with typical shounen character designs, this caused a nice blend of the comedy and action. Apart from the certain abstract scenes mentioned before, the art was far from an eyesore and actually helped maintain the series when it began to fail.
The soundtrack goes with the series in a pleasurable but non-memorable way. The opening song did a great job of giving me a positive view when I started the anime and when I started the new episode every week. Even when I knew the anime that was starting after the minute and a half song was far from perfect. The soundtrack worked well in matching the moods of different scenes and didn’t separate the viewer from the voice acting but instead accompanied the seiyuu’s dialogue well.
The characters in Blood Lad all play a relatively necessary role in the show but the way some of these roles were developed is probably the weakest point of the series. In some cases there is no development at all, they are simply placed in the series for the short time they are needed then used later on for gags. But, with it being a 10 episode series and of the comedy genre, which doesn’t typically have or need much character development, I do take into account that it would be very hard to develop all the characters they introduced. So I’ll only be judging the development of the main characters. Staz, obviously, has the most development as a character throughout the series and for a comedy series this should have been absolutely fine, here’s the problem though-- it didn’t feel like enough. The flashbacks and dialogue he’s involved in don’t provide enough substance to give me a reason to care about him. Little character development in a comedy series is acceptable but if it is not handled well, which in this case it wasn’t, it makes you care about the character less. If you don’t care about the main character then it is hard to care about anything he or she is involved in, which in a main character’s case is usually everything to do with the series. The biggest let down of the series was the underdevelopment of Staz, if you can’t get your viewer to care about the main character then the anime falls apart.
Blood Lad was a show that let itself down more than it let the viewers down, because it could have been much more than it ended up as.
But after all this negativity in this piece of writing I can honestly say that I still really enjoyed Blood Lad. No it didn’t impress me as much as I was expecting, yes it had a lot of flaws, but the overall charm of the series kept me watching. If you’re a fan of this anime I can understand why and I can also say I am a fan. If I can’t point out the flaws in a series then how can I properly call myself a fan? Blood Lad was a fun experience and I still hold to my previous comment that it was neither unbearable and unoriginal nor bearable and original, because honestly from a critical standpoint Blood Lad didn’t impress me or frustrate me—it just gave me enjoyment.
After reading this review I hope you have a good idea on all the flaws of Blood Lad. But if you were interested in this series like I was I encourage you to look past the flaws and have fun with this anime, it might not be the most empowering, impressive, revolutionary anime in existence but it is great for some enjoyable watching and sometimes that’s all that matters. If you can look past that fact then who knows you might really enjoy this anime. Give it a shot.
Ok, time to make my review of this 10 episode anime thing....then again, I think I should just quit beating around the bush and state by ratings for each of this anime's category.
Story: mediocre 5.
Ok, so vampires plots are overrated, and this anime follow the same path as that of the main character which has some similarities from "Hataraku Maou-sama" which is about a underworld big boss who doesn't wanna be a big boss anymore and desires a simple life in another place, in fact the plot is almost the same as the mentioned anime. Only the execution is different and it is almost ( and I do mean "ALMOST") like a remake.
Art: good 7.
Ok, I'm gonna give the credit to Fuyumi and Hydra bell, co'z I like the way how they're illustrated.
Sound: fair 6.
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ, Oh sorry I doze off, ok on this part I'm gonna refer to the main character's diction, intonation, enunciation, and tone as some what, ZZZZZZZZZ, eh! Ok so their voice seemly has that lack of sleep thing in it that one would make you want to doze off or it has the sleepy effect as if the character's themselves and I'm referring to Staz and Braz's who have been deprived of sleep for a very long time. However, I give this anime's category a 6 co'z I like the way Fuyumi's VA who delivers a sweet tone on to her character. As for the op and ed....I hate them both.
Character, Enjoyment and Overall: poor 3.
Character- It's all on Staz, everything about the character is too cliche especially when everything was place on him, other character's here are just antagonist waiting to be tamed by him, Fuyumi on the other hand is more of a sexy mascot than a damsel in distress as for Hydra Bell... I kind hate her dichotomy character which she's this liberated evil bitch in one hand which you wouldn't wanna bring home to mom and on the other hand she want's to be loved.
Enjoyment- The enjoyment part of this anime is pretty stupid, in fact I can compared it to opening a safe where one wasted a lot of time and effort only to find out that the combination is just 12345. Just like this anime Staz when into a lot of effort to make Fuyumi a human again only to be flustered us audience that Fuyumi simply has to go back to her world to be human again, then again it also conflicts earlier episodes were Fuyumi and Staz did went into the human world and Fuyumi is still a ghost. It would have had a smart ending if Staz forces that Frankenstein doctor in his world to clone Fuyumi's body and have her soul posses it just like what Braz did to his father in the final part of the last episode.
Overall- Brain Base, didn't do a good job of presenting this anime, then again, it was a good thing that they limit it to just 10 episodes. Overall, this series should be better off as a manga than an anime. Season 2? I wouldn't suggest it.
Blood Lad is an intriguing comedy/supernatural anime that is one of the best, if not the best of the Summer 2013 season. I've been looking forward to every new episode, and it's been very enjoyable so far.
First and foremost, the show is very entertaining. I've definitely had my share of laughs, as Blood Lad definitely qualifies as a solid comedy. It brings to the table a helping of exciting moments that take you to the edge of your seat, but also a bunch of weird situations too.
The story is basically about a vampire who wants to resurrect a human girl who died and is now a ghost. It's not bad and the rest of the show goes along with it. It's nice that it never strays off topic, and everything going on is for the sake of resurrecting Fuyumi. The plot isn't deep or anything but you don't watch a show like this for the plot anyways.
To be honest, there are a few characters who you kind of just want to whack in the face with a baseball bat. On the contrary, there are some pretty badass characters as well who even it out. Overall, most of the character's aren't deep at all and have no background or are plain weird. It's fine though because this isn't meant to be a piece of literature, it's a comedy.
Though it isn't spectacular enough to be considered a masterpiece, the artwork and animation is definitely good, and fits in very well with the way the show is produced. It's lighthearted and supports the humorous parts of the show. However, I think it's a little to cheesy and the "cartoonishness" could definitely be cut down a little, though I am being a bit picky. Overall, it was a job well done.
The sound is pretty nice too. With many situations, there was music in the background that complimented the artwork. The voice actors were good as well. The sounds coming out of the characters' mouths were very fitting. Also, I liked the theme songs, especially the opening.
In a nutshell, Blood Lad is a nice comedy that made me laugh and look forward to the next episode, making me a fan of the series. If you're looking for a funny, exciting, and fast-paced show that involves the supernatural, this is the show for you. read more
- Both have a Halloween-like theme to it filled with supernatural creatures galore.
- Both are shonen fighting anime.
- Fanservice galore in both
- Similar humor
- Soul and Staz both have really similar personalities
- The art style to Blood Lad is strikingly similar to Soul Eater's in a way. I actually believed that both of them were by the same creator when I first saw Blood Lad! So if you like the art style in one then you might really like the other.
The concepts of demons and souls are bought together in both Soul Eater and Blood Lad. Their worlds contrasts with the law of nature along with the modern world.
The main male protagonist from both series are hot headed but does care about his friends and companion. The main female characters contrasts quite a bit from both series but do also play some pivotal roles in the stories. They often encourage their companion to believe in themselves at what they do.
Both series has a lot of comedy and strange gags. This is presented in more of a lighthearted tone that occurs out of random sometimes. Additionally, expect some action as there are conflicts in involved from both worlds.
Supernatural themes are very recurrent in both series as well as the dark aesthetic in a not-to-be-taken-seriously way. Blood Lad has a bit more fanservice tho.
Also, I consider Soul Eater to be significantly higher than the other, maybe due to a bigger amount of episodes that serve well to character development and progress of characters relationships.
Both series have fan service, a lot of comedy, and things that have to do with demons, souls, spirits, etc. I think they also have aimilar a art style and vibe. There are also hints of romance between the main characters, i.e. Soul and Maka, Staz and Fuyumi.
Both anime feature monsters, magic, and a halloween themed world.
Soul Eater has more insane smiley people art-wise and focuses more on humanoid protagonists fighting with their sentient weapons.
Blood Lad focuses on a vampire protagonist with vampiric powers, such as super-regeneration and being able to crush enemy's hearts with magic.
Both have a unique world brought to life by a broad, vivid color scheme. Both have a wacky (and somewhat urban) atmosphere, style of humor, and characters. Soul Eater is much more shounen, but Blood Lad also carries importance in powers.
Supernatural themes are very recurrent in both series as well as the dark aesthetic in a not-to-be-taken-seriously way. Blood Lad has a bit more fanservice tho.
Also, I consider Soul Eater to be significantly higher than the other, maybe due to a bigger amount of episodes that serve well to character development and progress of characters relationships
Both these series focus on the hot-headed protagonists and their lives. They have a similar tyle and atmosphere, and focus heavily on the comedy. Of course, Soul Eater becomes more serious towards the end, while Blood Lad has more of a light-hearted feel to it. Both these animes have to do with supernatural beings and powers.
They both had a very similar fell to them so if you like one you might like the other.
Basically the two are built on the same "ground", although the stories don't come to resemble, both are full of supernatural creatures with a tone of satirical comedy, which is what makes me believe that those who enjoyed one certainly will appreciate the other, the characters have similar aspects as well as the animation as a whole, not to mention the fights that follow the same style.
The animation is extremely similar. They both have whimsical characters, backgrounds, and situations. Staz (the main character of Blood Lad) looks very similar to Death the Kid as well, and they both have quirky personalities. They both fall under the fantasy genre and have similar creatures like werewolves, demons, ghosts, etc. They both remind me of each other and they are both excellent series. Blood Lad has a lot less episodes than Soul Eater, but they both give off the same feeling while watching them. It sucks you in by the story line, interesting characters, and amusing comic relief.
•They have the same art style
•Both have surreal things like demons
•Both have awesome fights
•They have strong male leads
•All sorts of people appear in both animes
•Both have almost romnace
•BOTH ARE AMAZING
Both animes got all sort of supernatural creatures and use theirs respective powers against each others
Humor and personality of the main characters are based on the same principle
Design of the anime are very similar
Both anime are about a girl who can turn into a ghost (but in Noragami it isn't as permanent). The main male character is helping the girl out to turn back to normal.
Both anime have similar genres and have a similar story line even though they're completely different. The male lead sets out on a journey or search to save the female protagonist who tags along and later develops feelings.
Set in a modern time setting, the main female character's life is changed forever one day thanks to the handy dandy work of a supernatural being.
But that's not all that's changed. Her life becomes involved with supernatural beings that revolves around cases that puts her life in danger. The male protagonist strives to protect them and hopefully restore things back to order.
Expect action, drama, comedy, and humorous dialogues.
These two anime both deal with super natural creatures (in Noragami, youkai and spirits, while in Blood Lad, demons). There are a lot of fighting scenes, and both have female protagonists who want to go back to normal.
Note that this recommendation is based on the first episode of Noragami. It involves a supernatural Male protagonist, a Female Protagonist who enters into their supernatural world, ends up "dying" in some way and getting the Male Protag to help bring them back to normal. Yato as a character is also similar to Staz in some way, pale skin, black hair and a somewhat nonchalant manner
Both are trying to save the female protagonist and search out how to save the Girl
also both involves a supernatural and Both Male Protagonist have same characteristic
- Both anime's have easy going yet serious at times main characters
- Both anime's give off the same chilled vibe with a bit comedy and action thrown in
- Both anime's involve a power but lazy main
- The main Heroine in both anime's are very alike
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS ANIME!
Both are helping what used to be a human girl become human again.
Supernatural action comedy is the order of the day here, something which both shows manage to pull off pretty well. In each case we have a powerful male lead who thrives on being strange, a little selfish, lazy, and on their complete lack of common sense.
The action in each show is really nicely animated, with Blood Lad going for a mere stylized approach than Noragami does, but both definitely a lot of fun when they choose to let loose. Noragami is perhaps the more serious of the two shows, but never forgets to lighten up the mood with some well placed, and amusing comedy.
Both Anime have main powerful, supernatural characters
In both Anime Girl turns into a ghost
Both anime are equally funny
Both anime have a heavy comedy aspect yet also possess a serious side and decent plot. Main characters are quite similar.

Both anime's main character is the leader of a world or territory that has tons of followers. and they love japan; the genres of these animes are very alike and the female lead develops feelings for the male lead little by little.
In both series, there is a main male protagonist who seems to playing the role of a leader/ruler. However, they come in contact with something new and unexpected.
There is a lot of comedy in both series. Despite the main male protagonist portrayed as being powerful, they also seems to lack common sense and often or not seems to need help with logic of the real world. Both series also seems to make fun of popular culture and has references as well. There is also action that are sometimes exaggerated. The main female character in both series are a bit different but has an awkward relationship with the mc throughout the series. On the other hand, Fuyumi (Blood Lad) and Chiho (Hataraku Maou-Sama!) has some similarities.
Strangely enough both these anime is really similar. Similar kind of art style if that is what attracted you, but also similar humor.
-Both have quirky "demon lord"
-Both are in==enticed by the human world, in one way or the other.
and plus, both are very funny and im hoping for more funny situations and stuff with Blood Lad
the CV of both protagonist is same..
both protagonist is supposed being a bad guy,, but actually they are a funny, crazy, good guy
the story has a 2 world..
both has a great action..
the comedy is great..
The second I started watching Blood Lad, I immediately got struck by that "special atmosphere," I so typically experienced back when I watched Hataraku Maou-sama! Already from the get-go, the series share a lot of elements and strikingly similar plot-twists. Many of the reasons behind this common atmosphere they share can be easily explained. The very moment you're introduced to the main protagonist, Charlie Staz, you'll immediately start seeing that he has some clear similarities to Hataraku's Maou-sama.
1. Staz is just like Maou, a type of demonic creature. Staz is a vamp and Maou is the Devil in own high person.
2. Staz and Maou are both very high-ranking individuals, and both have right-hands and helpers at their service.
3. They're both a bit lazy in nature but have also shown that they both are able to perform exceedingly well when challenged or motivated with various tasks or goals.
4. Staz has a tendency (just like Maou-sama) for not taking his helpers nor other people's feelings into full consideration when ordering them around or engaging with them socially.
5. They both come from another world/dimension (usually demonic in nature) to Earth through some kind of teleportation device or portal. Though they split on the fact that Staz actually wants to go to the Human world, whereas Maou did not.
6. They're both "Masters" at unconsciously getting girls to fall in love with them. Though Staz (like Maou-sama) is simply way too self-centered to really notice anything (i.e. meaning Chiho/Fuyumi-chan)...
7. Staz and Maou are both adapt quickly in the face of major plot-twists (many which they cause themselves, often without their knowledge).
8. Last, I wanted to enlighten those who have so far been too blind to have noticed this... It is the fact that Staz and Maou-sama both share the same voice actor: Ryota Ohsaka.
Plus, I'd also like us all to welcome Mr. Komesu Taichi on his debut. I hope we'll be seeing him in further series down the road.
The same entities from the underworld wanting to live in the human world, a lot comedy, except one is a bit disgusting.
They have a similar ambient, are comedic and funny, and also have interesting fights and characters.
Both Main Male character are demons (vampire count as a demon). Both started at the demon world then the human world and both have a gate to enter/leave the human world.
Same category (Comedy) has underworld
Both are shows about demons, they're both packed with comedy and action
In both series, there is a supernatural setting where there are beings that are otherworldly. Additionally, the main male protagonist are hotheaded and are not human themselves.
There is a lot of humor in both series although Blood Lad also has more fan service and even a little romance. However, they both have the fact that the main male protagonist is not human and possesses similar personalities. Both shows also gives similar vibes in regards to its atmosphere.
Both anime feature monsters, magic, and a halloween themed world.
Blue Exorcist's main character, Rin Okumura, is a demon who was raised as a human and chooses to get stronger to protect humans. In Blue Exorcist's world, the demon world and human world are in constant conflict as humans try to protect themselves from malevolent demons.
Blood Lad's main character, Staz C. Blood, is a vampire who is the leader of a gang taking up a territory the size of a large city. He meets a human girl for the first time but lacks the desire to simply eat her, and ends up wanting to protect her. She immediately dies and becomes a demon ghost, so he decides to do whatever it takes to revive her as a normal human.
Both main characters have extraordinary power that makes them potentially more powerful than most others within their own universe. Both characters tend to act like they can do whatever they want, or at least want to act that way. Neither character likes to think too hard about what their doing, but in the case of Blood Lad, Staz seems to easily and immediately pick logical choices while Rin is a bit more of a "think later" type of character.
Both deal with supernatural creatures and humans. Blue Exorcist has more action than Blood Lad while Blood Lad has more comedy. Both main character (Okumura Rin and Staz) are fairly similar and goofy. The relationship between Rin and Satan is similar to the relationship between Staz and his brother Vlad.
- The main characters have a similar personality.
- Both series involve a supernatural world.
- Both include action, with a similar type of comedy.
- The main characters face hardships and consequences with the usage of their power.
Both Blood Lad and Ao no Exorcist are centered around the protagonists interactions with various spiritual and mythical creatures. Each series has its own special way of showing off the power of the main character and both have a similar pace of showing the main story line throughout the anime.
Both main characters have a very similar sense of humor and makes for an enjoyable mixture of action, comedy and supernatural.
If you enjoy quirky supernatural anime, then this show is a great watch for you. Ao no exorcist and Blood Lad each have a male lead with demonic powers- both of which are a little stupid at times. Even with the comedy, both series delve into darker elements when appropriate. And just as a little bonus, the female leads of the two shows have a friendly personality and a big chest to go along with it.
Supernatural powers and creatures
Humor and personality of the main characters are based on the same principle
Fights are similar aswell
Both have a powerful vampire main character that lives in a demon city.
Also both contain some comedy.
The protagonists are both vampires who wants to live a normal life and also both of them have this 'secret past'.
The protagonist of both animes are vampires who want to have a normal life principle. However all this world to know a girl.
Another similar aspect is that both characters have a hidden power within them.
These two primarily action-focused anime both feature a strong male lead that is an immortal vampire. Both male leads can summon familiars and other powers that they use in battle. Both anime also contain a bit of romance, and a good amount of comedy and ecchi/fanservice.
Both main protagonist are vampires.
Both involves a girl following the main protagonist
+ Both have a superntural beings (vampires)
+ The main character is pretty serious and powerfull
With only a few episodes you can tell they are pretty alike
-Both involves delinquents as bosses
-Both super strong and supernatural powers
-Both involves demons, underworld, demon kings/bosses
-Both hilarious, good, entertaining
-Both involves a lot of big boob + eechi
Essentially, both series involves supernatural elements. For instance, the main male protagonist has powers as well as being hotheaded at many occasions. However, they do protect for what they care about. They also have reputations in their community (although for different reasons).
Among other things, there is a LOT of comedy in both series. Even some of the action scenes has this so the mood is very lighthearted. Then, there's the strange misunderstandings that happens around the communities of both series. Furthermore, there are demons present in both series. The main female protagonist are a bit different though but they have a strange relationship with the main guy.
Both involve an overpowered, hot-headed MC and a demon leader. They are both comedy/action and give a very similar atmosphere. The major difference between the two is that Beelzebub's MC is a highschool delinquent that has been placed in a position where he has to father the demon king's baby. In Blood Lad, the MC is an Otaku who just so happens to also be the boss of his territory in the demon world. Also, the majority of the characters in Blood Lad seem to be above highschool age, other than the female lead.
They are both about demons, are comedic and funny, and have action and interesting fights.
