You should try Ryohgo Narita's Vamp! series.
It's just 5 volume long (also free because as of now only fantranslation exsists) , but he has a really unique take on the entire vampire lore and uses the different vampire skills differently. (For example we have a girl named Piri, whose power is to turn into mist and uses this to her advantage and this is just in volume one. Then there is one vampire who is just a giant telekinetic puddle of blood... very polite, and also communicates by writing, often changes tone and language according to whom he is talking to.)

The writing is clever, as expected of Narita, and keeps things both logical yet surprising. It's like reading a mystery novel, but instead of finding out who the culprit is you have the plotpoints finally falling into place, with that "oh!" moment.

Also it's not an everyday scene that we see a vampire cursing in himself, because he can't wash his hands, can't shower, can't go to the beach or else running water will drain away his powers.

I am now picturing vampires taking dust baths like small birds or chinchillas and it is _fantastic_. Not OP, but this sounds neat, thanks for the rec!

and now I'm imagining pale Japanese vampires powdered with fine dust all over and thinking about kinako mochi
