Synopsis

In contemporary Boston, Dracula gatecrashes a Satanic ritual and makes off with the intended sacrifice, Delores. Overcome with love for her, he's unable to drink her blood and instead settles down with her and fathers a child, Janus. But Dracula's enemies are massing against him - a team of vampire hunters, including the wheelchair-bound Hans Harker, crossbow wielding and new recruit Frank Drake, a descendant of Dracula, are closing in. And Dracula has been stripped of his vampire powers by Satan and he desperately needs another vampire to restore his powers so that he can both see off his pursuers and avenge the death of Janus at the hands of vengeful Satanists.

A classic of bad anime panels at various conventions, Dracula: Sovereign of the Damned as it was titled for it's US release in the 80s by Harmony Gold is an example of how not to adapt an American comic book into film, especially a low budget anime one.

For one thing, this movie mostly takes place in Boston, and it's quite obvious that the creators have not only never been to Boston but didn't even research the city at all, which is why modern day (circa the 80s) Boston looks like an old European city with O'Hare International titled 'Boston Airport'.

Recommendations

How these are similar:

In both series the male protagonist wants to protect a human woman.

In both series the male protagonist is fighting to get what they want.

In both series the female lead is human.

Both series are about vampires.

Both series focus on love between human and vampire in one way or another.

One is older style anime one is new. Both are great if you like one you will like the other.
Both are classic B-movies by studio Toei Animation, based on Marvel comics about Dracula and Frankenstein respectively. Both feature similar animation style, weird acting, logical lapses and "quality" English dub.
