It's hard to take these two serious especially when the main female character (who happens to be a vampire in both series) is presented in a moe and cute way.
Both series explores the relationship between a vampire and a normal human who shares a special (and often comedic) bond.
Both series has romance but at the same time has many comedic and dramatic scenes. However at times, there are also emotional moments especially involving the dynamic duo of the two main characters in both series.
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.
when I watched DVB..it totally reminded me of Moon Phase. another thing is in the EN dub.. both mina and Hazuki is voiced by Monica Rial. also the voice cast is similar in the dub. anyway..if you love DVB..you'll love Moon phase
Both series' main protagonist has their lives changed forever after meeting a loli vampire who takes a curious interest in them. In fact, their personalities are quite similar with their bossy like attitude and tsundere tendencies. Still though, their relationship with the main protagonist grows as the series progresses.
Both series has a lot of drama, comedy, action, and supernatural elements.
Both series takes darker twists later on but has vampire themes throughout each episode.
The male leads are expected to serve the female leads but are often unsatisfactory though they are proven to have hidden capabilities later on. The female leads are tsundere characters, while the male leads both develop attachments and become loyal to the females. Both the shows are of the fantasy genre. And the plots basically have the same "band-together-to-defeat-the-forces-of-evil" type of theme, but aren't really very similar. They both also have fanservice.
In both anime an unwilling male has to become the slave of a Tsundere Loli due to some magical ritual. Both male leads don't want this at all, which leads to a lot of frustration on the female lead's part because they expect the males to follow their every command. Aside from this the main characters are pretty similair too. Both are cute but bossy tsundere lolis, that expect the male lead to do whatever they say, and get easily jealous when the male lead gets along well with another girl. And the male leads are both easy going laid back guys that refuse to be slaves to their "masters" at first, however after a while they start developing feelings for their "masters" and start kinda accepting their roles as servants. Also both the female and male leads in both anime posses a special hidden power that they are unaware of at the beginning, but learn to master towards the end. Eventually the main characters in both anime develop feelings for eachother, and the typical awkwardness that comes with tsundere romance ensues.
Personally I liked Zero no Tsukaima better than Tsukuyomi Moonphase, because the romance and comedy was better in ZnT. Also ZnT had a far better ending, and much less plot holes. I guess that the main diffrence between the two is that while ZnT is also a harem anime with slight ecchi moments (nothing too perverted however), Tsukuyomi Moonphase focuses on one heroine only (altough there are some other characters with slight feelings for the male lead, its not really at a harem anime level tough). Also in ZnT the male lead gets transported to another (Harry Potter like) world filled with magicians, while Moonphase simply takes place in our world.
If you liked one of the two you should definatelly check out the other one too. Chances are you'll like ZnT more, but if you're into vampires and a slightly darker story Tsukuyomi Moonphase is the way to go for you. read more
They both have vampires and dark, dramatic story lines full of vampire romance goodness and slight hints of action and comedy. The main female character is a young "innocent" girl who have strong bonds to the leading guy. Beautiful, sometimes gothic sceneries. What's not to like?
Imagine it like this.Kuroneko(the character from oreimo) got her own anime or lives her own anime and it is called Tsukuyomi moon phase.If you liked Kuroneko this is for you.The main character looks like Kuroneko,talks like her,acts like her etc...You can expect a lot of gothic vampire lolitas in that anime.The biggest difference is perhaps that Tsukuyomi is a more action/romance/comedy oriented anime.
At first glance MoonPhase and Bakemonogatari may appear to be unrelated but on closer inspection one can effectively see the underlying supernatural themes and other unexplainable phenomena through their means of story-telling, Shaft is well known for. Moreover their cast of characters such as the infamous Araragi Koyomi loved by his sisters and classmates and photographer Morioka Kouhei who, likewise Araragi, is loved by his nieces and fellow colleagues makes us see the two sides of the same coin. Although they may not realize it through sheer ignorance, these two lads are in fact most affectionate towards the little loli-vampires Hazuki and Shinobu.
The overall plots of the two differ in an awful lot of ways, but the relationships between the two main characters - and indeed the characters themselves - in each show are very similar in many senses. I liked both, so you guys might. :)
Similarities are :A"strange" young girl entrancing a boy in both anime , many shots are similar as i believe they have the same director, both towards the gothic type of anime (Petit Cossette being more)also the main boys both work in antique shop.
Because they are both directed by Akiyuki Shinbo and produced by studio SHAFT, they are very similar in style. -MOON PHASE- has a young girl who makes a pact with an older guy and the story focuses on vampires. In Negima!?, it's a young male who makes pacts with his older female students, there’s only one vampire, and emphasis is put most on the magical incantations. However, each series shares similar elements and has a serious gothic tone; yet at times they can be very cute and even slightly romantic. Not to mention both are VERY funny! In fact, the running gag with the falling pan from -MOON PHASE- occurs a few times in Negima!? read more
Plots are similar, and in both main character are cute girls living with boy who found them. Both stories are cheerful and yuo'll definitly smile after watching them.
In both stories appears cute mascots in Chobits - Sumomo and Kotoko and in Tsukuyomi Haiji.
These two animes are similar, because their plots and characters are somewhat the same in the sense that they both involve a male, main character, that ends up protecting a vampire girl, and ultimately fighting along side her. Moon phase is the cute side, while Shingetsutan Txukihime is a little more violence, than it is cat ears.
