After millennia in hiding, Mina Tepes, the Princess of the ancient covenant and ruler of all vampires, wants change. Using the vast wealth of the Tepes line, she has paid off the entire gross national debt of Japan and in so doing, gained the authority to create a "special district" off the coast of Japan that is to become the future haven to vampires the world over!

Now, on the eve of the landmark press conference announcing the existence of vampires to the world, terrorists and rival factions are plotting to assassinate Mina Tepes before she has a chance to make her world-changing announcement.

If you're going to watch this anime, do me a favor and watch the Blu-ray version. The TV version is so horrible that I even consider giving this anime a 6 once.

Now for those who are too lazy to read:
+ Good art and animation (Blu-ray version)
+ Great and well-developed character
+ Interesting Plot
- Forgettable soundtrack

In-depth review:
Dance in the Vampire Bund. Looks like a good anime when i looked through the list of animes. Well, it's animated by SHAFT right? Let's give it a try then.

It's about a vampire princess building her own country with her lover. Nothing interesting, right? The show starts off read more

To be honest, it's really surprising to see so many reviews giving Vampire Bund such a low score. For me, it was absolutely the best vampire anime I've ever seen. I can't really say that I'm obsessed with vampires, but it's certainly an interesting genre. Unfortunately there isn't really a lot of animes which use this theme to its fullest. In that sense, Vampire Bund has managed to utilize all the glory of the vampire legend and myth.

As it goes with most vampire stories, Vampire Bund's plot revolves around the vampire princess, or vampire queen. However, it's really the subtle things that impresses me read more

I was hesitant to watch Dance in the Vampire Bund, after all the bad reviews and ratings it was given, but I was surprised to find myself entertained by it. So much that I finished it all in one day.

I decided to give a summery of the anime because I dont believe the synopsis is fair to it.

A 17 yr old boy has had all his memories erased due to an incident that happened a year and a half ago. What he does remember is a promise he made to this girl seven years ago, to always be together. That girl turns read more

"Still a better love story than twilight." No, but seriously now. This was phenomenal!

I knew this show existed via cover art that I've seen in various places. So, I decided to take the time to watch it when it was finally recommended through another show. I figured vampires usually make something interesting to watch. This show was no exception and stole my complete attention until it was over.

No spoilers, but slight references possible.

Simply put, supernatural love story. I mean a good one too! This story did, however, take time for me to wrap around but it gets better. In other words, give it an read more

Anime: Shiki
Both having FEARSOME vampires. Really, a lot of vampire stories are having soft vampire stories. Vampire Knight is awesome, but the vampires are lacking much things. Shiki and the Dance in the vampire Bund are both more like the myths. Both anime are having an dark aura and really get you into the anime. And in both anime the vampires are trying to take over the place.

Anime: Tsukuyomi: Moon Phase
I haven't watched Dance In The Vampire Bund that much, but from what I've seen it is pretty identical to tsukuyomi moon phase. They both have imperious Vampire Lolis and the dark feeling of vampire anime (mostly Dance In The Vampire Bund has it :D ).
The strong bond between the female and male main characters is also very simular.

Anime: Bakemonogatari
Bakemonogatari and Dance in the Vampire Bund have the following similarities:
- both deal with supernatural (vampires);
- both have a slow-paced romantic storyline full of intriguing twists;
- both are created with the participation of Studio Shaft;
- both share a similar artstyle and atmosphere, so if you've enjoyed the one, you'll probably like the other, too.

Anime: Gosick
The young blond girl are similar in personality and in the way they talk.

Anime: Shingetsutan Tsukihime
Both have a Vampire female protagonist which has a haunty air, but is clumsy in social situations. Both are the elite of their kind. They both interact with the male protagonist in a similar sort of air. The male lead is a born killer, though unaware of the fact and has some supernatural force by his side (Shiki with his eyes of death perception and Akira being a werewolf likebeing).

The animation has the same kind of feel, but tsukihime is noticalby older.

Both could be for fans of Twliight (and for once with a vampire related story)

Anime: Vampire Knight
They're both about vampires, but DVB is more focus on the vampire queen than pure blooded vampires. Even so, they're both very enjoyable.
