Watch Moon Phase

Moon Phase is a fantasy anime series that follows the relationship between a vampire and a photographer. Kouhei Morioka is a photographer working freelance. He is sent to Germany on assignment for his cousin's supernatural magazine. In a castle called "Schwarz Quelle", he meets the fourteen year old vampire girl Hazuki who feeds on his blood to bind him as her unwilling servant. What Hazuki doesn't know is that Kouhei is immune to the slave's binding-- a special sort of person called "ama lamia", or "vampire lover". Kouhei and his cousin free Hazuki, and travel together to live in his grandfather's house in Japan. There, we meet Kouhei's family and friends as well as some of Hazuki's family who try to retrieve her.

Hazuki's secondary personality is Luna. Luna was placed in Hazuki's mind by her father, who wanted to keep Hazuki confined to the castle Schwarz Quelle. Luna is calculating and cold, much like a typical vampire. Luna can only come forth during a full moon and through the use of a special pendant. Luna and Hazuki can communicate telepathically in times of stress, and Luna can even force a take over of Hazuki's body.

Hazuki and Kouhei are seen as dangerous threats to the status quo by other vampires, and Hazuki's family tries to return her to the castle. Unlike her vampire family, Hazuki can survive in sunlight-- a gift much envied by other vampires. Later, Kouhei discovers he posses formidable spiritual powers. His parents suppressed them when he was a child because they wanted to help him have a normal life.

Kouhei and Hazuki become fond of each other. While at first they bickered, they eventually develop a strong bond. They are protective of each other and even begin to think of the other as a sibling.

Moon Phase is a romantic comedy anime featuring supernatural elements and some combat scenes. The series aired in Japan from 2004 through 2005, with a special episode airing in 2006. Moon Phase was dubbed and released in the United States by Funimation.
