Hakushaku to Yousei, or Earl and Fairy, is an anime adaptation of a light novel written by Mizue Tani which aired in 2008.

This anime is one of the hidden gems I always love to come back to because it has romance in the purest form and is very fun to watch.

I hope that some anime matching the standards from Hakushaku to Yousei will air soon so I can get the “uwu atmosphere” back.

The story follows Lydia Carlton, a fairy doctor in Scotland with a special ability to see and communicate with fairies. The only problem? No one believes her.

That is until she meets Edgar, a guy interested in her knowledge of fairy lore which is necessary for him if he wants to obtain a treasured sword that was supposed to be handed down to him by his family.

These are the 7 most similar anime to Hakushaku to Yousei.

Why it’s similar

Both anime are shoujo with supernatural elements, romantic scenes, and similar drawings, including a male lead who is protecting the female main character. 


The anime takes place in a world in which vampires and humans coexist (unknowingly to humans).

Yuuki, together with Zero Kiryuu, her stepbrother are prefects for the Day Class and are trying to keep everything running smoothly and keep the secret of the Night Class safe.

Yuuki considers the prefect job a good opportunity to meet her savior and crush from the night class, Kaname Kuran, meanwhile Zero finds it a nuisance because he deeply hates vampires.

The question remains the same – can humans and vampires coexist this way?
