Ken Kaneki is a typical high school nerd who has been spending his days peacefully. When he is not in class, he spends most of his time reading books. But, recently a beautiful girl has caught his interest. This girl is named Rize, and when Ken finally manages to go on a date with her, he is over the moon.

However, all of his future dreams are shattered when he finds out that the girl he is madly in love with is actually a Ghoul. If you don’t know about Ghouls, then they are like vampires, but instead of just drinking blood, they consume human body parts whole. So, Kaneki is just food for Rize, but somehow, he manages to survive and escape from her. But now he is not human anymore and has become a mix of both.

If you are looking for something intense with gore and dark content like Devils Line, then you will definitely love Tokyo Ghoul. There are three-plus seasons, so if you are getting bored this weekend, binge-watch this dark tale field with love, revenge, and lots of killing.

16. Blood Lad

Blood Lad

Anime and Manga are not just popular in the human realm; a vampire living in the demon realm enjoys Japanese literature. So, when a girl named Fuyumi accidentally comes to the demon realm, he takes it upon himself to help her out and revive her before she becomes a ghost.

Now, he is on a journey to find a way to revive her, but many unexpected supernatural things are waiting for them.

15. Psycho-Pass

Psycho Pass

Before we start, I would like to give you a bonus fact: the voice actor Takahiro Sakurai, who is Shogo’s voice actor, has also worked as a voice actor for Kikuhara from Devil’s Line.

The story of Psycho-Pass takes place in a futuristic world where technology has advanced so far that it’s also possible to measure the mental condition of humans and figure out what is right and wrong. This system can help predict if someone will commit a crime in future and take preventive measures against it.

Currently, Sybil is used by Japanese cops, and they must follow it to reduce the crime rate. If I have to compare it with Devil’s Line, it has the same plot, which revolves around many mysteries, and it will keep you hooked. In terms of violence, it also crosses the Devil’s Line.

14. Ajin (Ajin: Demi-Human)

Ajin (Ajin Demi Human)

Mysterious beings named Ajim started appearing in Africa seventeen years ago. They are said to be immortal and very dangerous beings. So, they. Are feared by humans. Therefore, if someone is suspected of being an Ajin, they will be killed on the spot or sent to a lab for experiments.

Kei Nagisa was an ordinary school guy, unconcerned about all this until he got hit by a truck. At that time, he nearly died, but he also became aware of something that would change his life moving forward; he is not a human but an Ajin. Now, he will be the target for hunting and experiments, and a group of revolutionaries are recruiting Ajin to start a revolution against humans.

When comparing Ajin to Devil’s Line, there is only one thing that is lacking: romance. So, if you are someone who doesn’t enjoy the romantic parts of such dark and mystery-filled anime, then you’ll be pleased with Ajin.

13. Kurozuka


This story takes place in a post-apocalyptic world. When a powerful swordsman named Kuro consumes the blood of a mysterious woman named Kuromitsu, he becomes immortal. This series shows him dealing with love and loss while pursuing immortality.

If you are looking for an action-packed series with something romantic and some supernatural things, then “Kurozuka” won’t let you down.

12. Mars Red

Mars Red

The story of Mars Red takes place in an alternate world where vampires have existed for quite some time now. However, their population has started increasing suddenly, and an artificial blood source called Ascra has also appeared and no one knows where it came from.

These problems need to be dealt with as quickly as possible, so the Japanese government formed a special unit called “Code Zero,” and all the members of this organization are vampires and Yoshinobu Maeda is the guy who leads them.

Their mission is to deal with other vampires who are spreading chaos and interfering with the blood trade. So, the major similarity between Devil’s Line and Mars Red is that vampires work for the government and fight against bad vampires.

11. Shiki


Megumi Shimizu is tired of living her boring and quiet life in Sotoba village; she has only one dream: to leave this small village and live in a bustling city. However, a strange illness suddenly started spreading in the village; people suddenly started to get severely ill, and many people started dying from it.

Therefore, Dr Toshio Ozaki is trying to find the cause of this illness to save the people of Sotoba. However, the reason for their mysterious deaths is not an illness but the family of some mysterious people who suddenly started living in the strange castle near the village.

Will Doctor Ozaki be able to solve this mystery and save the people of Sotoba village? Or will he also get caught up in the scheme of this mysterious family?

Like Devil’s Line, this series is filled with vampires, mysteries, and lots of horror. If you think that horror was somewhat lacking in Devil’s Line, Shiki will surely give you the taste of darkness.

10. Nightwalker: The Midnight Detective

Nightwalker The Midnight Detective

The story of Nightwalker is about a detective named Tatsuhiko Shido, He is actually not a human and a vampire. Moreover, he is also suffering from amnesia. Currently, he is working as a detective for a special agency called N.O.S., and his mission is to find and send back the demons who possess innocent people and consume their souls.

He is not alone on this mission; Yaoi, Riho, and Guhi will help them on this mission. Nightwalker is a typical gothic horror story where vampires work for the government to fight against demons and maintain peace. So, if you love horror stories with gothic elements like this, then you’ll definitely love Nightwalker.

Since Nightwalker was originally a coloured eroge, we can see some characters with semi-nude clothing. This anime has some good drama that gives you that mysterious vibe, like Devil’s Line.

Compared to other anime mentioned on this list, this one is probably the oldest one. But, despite being old, it can still rival some of the current best anime, like Devils Line. There are vampires, detectives and devils.

9. Devilman: Crybaby

Devilman Crybaby

If Nightwalker was the oldest anime on this list, then Devilman Crybaby is the newest and currently most popular one on this list. The protagonist of this anime is a guy named Akira Fudo.

This protagonist is a big crybaby; even if he watches someone in pain, he will start crying. However, when his friend, Ryo Asuka, was in danger, he merged with a devil to save his dying friend’s life.

After Fudo merged with the devil, he also got abilities to use some strange powers. Now, the devil inside of him wants to get out of his body and feast on the people. Therefore, Yukki has to keep his bloodlust in control.

If I have to give 10 to Devil’s Line, then I’ll have to give Devilman a score of 11. All of the fight scenes are very gore, and during them, you will see buckets of blood spraying everywhere.

8. Blood+


In front of everyone, Saya Otonashi is a normal high school student, but in reality, she is actually a vampire. She is a vampire who is fighting against Chiropterans.

The story of Blood+ revolves around Saya as she searches for clues to know about her forgotten past; while she fights with Chiropterans, she discovers some details about her past, which shocks her to the core. Like Devil’s Line, Blood+ also has mystery, drama and action that revolves around vampires.

7. Servamp


Mahiru Shirota is a 15-year-old guy who is studying in college. He doesn’t want any thrills or drama in his life; he is a guy who likes it simple. But, one day, he finds a black cat named Kuro; later, he finds out that Kuro is not a cat but a vampire.

After meeting Kuro, Mahiru accidentally forms a pact with it and ends up fighting other servants. This story has a more comedic plot than Devil’s Line, so if you are looking for a more light-hearted anime to watch, Servamp is a good choice to go with. Moreover, it was also produced by Platinum Vision, the same studio which also produced Devil’s Line.

6. Hellsing


A powerful vampire named Alucard leads an organization named Hellsing to protect England from supernatural entities like ghouls and vampires. Members of this group are all skilled at fighting off against non-human enemies to keep the city peaceful.

Hellsing is a dark anime with a gothic theme and powerful action scenes with vampires. So, if you like Devil’s Line, you will surely love Hellsing.

5. Trinity Blood

Trinity Blood

Abel Night Road is an agent working for the Vatican. He is actually a Crusnik, a type of vampire who doesn’t drink human blood but the blood of other vampires.

Abel discovers a conspiracy that will plunge the world into chaos with his teammates. In a world where Humans and vampires live together, this series, with its intricate plot, mind-losing animations and well-thought-out character arcs, gives us a slightly different view of vampire animes.

4. Owari no Seraph+

Owari no Seraph+

One day, a mysterious virus suddenly spreads around the world, and it only affects those who are older than 13, and those who get it end up dead.

This made Yuuichirou Hyakuya’s life like a living hell. Soon, he learns that this virus was created by the vampires who want to control this world and get rid of all the human beings on this planet.

The reason they kept the kids and teenagers alive was to use them as cattle to meet their demand for blood consumption. When Yuuichirou and Mikaela plan their escape, Mikaela steals a map and a gun from a noble vampire.

However, that noble vampire was just playing with them, and he knew about their plan. He killed Mikaela and the other kids, while Yuuichirou could only look at them dying.

Their death allows Yuuichirou to escape from vampires, and on his way, he meets vampire hunters and finds that there are still many humans alive and they are fighting against vampires. To get revenge for his family and his best friend, Yuuichirou joins vampire hunters. He has only one goal, and that is to kill every vampire on the earth.

In terms of Similarities between Owari no Seraph and Devil’s Line, there are many things to discuss, but telling them would be like giving spoilers. So, you’ll have to figure them out yourself. This series contains many mysterious elements, and a mysterious power is lying inside Yuuichirou that no one is aware of.
