I would recommend Shingetsutan Tsukihime. A rather mature series. More horror than Gothic lolita or such, though. There are vampires and some other... "creatures". Some blood and intelligent romance, no hardcore gore stuff. It seems to be based on an eroge visual novel, and hardcore fans of that game seem to be rather disappointed about the series, but I wouldn't pay too much attention to that, it's definitely worth watching. At least I don't regret having discovered it a few years ago.

You might like Kigeki, just for its atmosphere (there's no romance, but then it's a really short piece).
Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust is an attractive gothic-horror-western-romance action movie.
This is a little bit of a long shot, but you might like Shakugan no Shana. It doesn't have vampires, but its plot features some similar life-force mechanics and it has a lot of supernatural action. And a love triangle.
I haven't seen it, but Chrno Crusade is supposed to be a fairly gothic action-romance. (It's also that rare thing, a nunsploitation anime, but that's not really relevant to this topic.)
Oh, and a friend of mine who's an expert on Gothic things argues that Shin Mazinger Z is rather gothic, though I'm not entirely convinced.

Zatake said:Goth, however, is pretty superficial. The characters could have deserved some deeper psychologically structures. They are gloomy only for the sake of the dark atmosphere of that manga.
I second this. And if you are interested in manga check out Goth. Name is self-explanatory.
