Over a century ago, mankind was devoured by giant beings of unknown intelligence and origin known as Titans – creatures that eat humans alive indiscriminately and for no apparent reason. The remaining population has managed to survive the last hundred years only by building a multi-walled city capable of keeping the Titans at bay, training military recruits to patrol the perimeter and gather intelligence about their mysterious foe. Eren and Mikasa have lived a relatively peaceful life behind the city's walls, but when a massive Titan appears, smashing the outer barrier and unleashing a wave of terror, their lives are brutally changed forever...

In times of olde, humans live in constant fear of demons known as yoma. These vicious creatures can take the appearance and memories of humans they have devoured, thus blending into society as they freely feast on human flesh. The key to stopping the yoma lies with the tolerated yet feared Claymores - women who are half-demon, half-human, and fully fated to become the demons that they hunt. Meanwhile, in a village, the young Raki has been banished; his only crime was losing his family to the yoma. Raki is drawn to a Claymore named Clare, and together their journey begins. While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?

Both anime share a general feeling of unease and hopelessness. If you enjoyed "Claymore" for the violence there is (will be) plenty of that to be found in "Attack on Titan". In both anime there are monsters that are trying to destroy mankind and in both anime there is a group of "soldiers" who fight them.

Both shows also share a similar color palette and animation style.

If you liked one you should like the other.


Very similar mood, monsters/titans invading human territory and feeding on them. Very in your face brutality with lots of fighting and deaths. If you like serious animes with no mercy, then this is for you.


Yep I would say its a mix of claymore and rainbow. I added Rainbow as a recommendation below.


If you liked Claymore you might like Attack on Titan.  Both anime are in fantasy settings featuring swords and monsters, both seem to highlight neigh impossible to win wars, with humans cowering in fear from some sort of monster which feeds on them, and include a focus of the story on characters who's job it is to battle those monsters to protect humanity.  There are other similarities but those would be spoilers.


Set in worlds where humans live in a constant state of fear, both Shingeki no Kyoujin and Claymore feature highly specialized warriors battling monsters for the sake of humanity. Both share a cold, cruel world outlook, and an atmosphere of futility and violence. I think fans of either show would enjoy the other.


Both have a very dark atmosphere. I also find the art to be similar in some ways. Plenty of blood and gore to go around. I just started Attack on Titan but I can already tell I'll like it as much as Claymore.


Both series are set in grim, medieval time where humanity struggles against its man-eating nemesis. The main focus of both shows would be on humanity’s defenders (both are some sort of military) and their struggle to survive against all odds. There’s blood, there’s violence and there’s revenge, so if you’re a fan of one it wouldn’t hurt to check out the other one. 


Both these series have similar settings and the same bleak tone created by the need to fight a powerful enemy against all the odds. A sense of futility is conveyed in both, with revenge and violence being strong themes throughout. Strong female characters are also prominent in both series. Any more details would e spoilers, but i think it's a safe bet that if you enjoyed one, you will enjoy the other.


Both anime showcase unknown creatures inhabitating the world. With people willing to fight with said creatures and are some how related.


Both Attack on Titan and Claymore are about monsters eating people and someone who is trying to stop them .Both shows are really creepy and in the both shows the buildings look old.In the both shows someone very important to the main character dies and he/she becomes a warrior to avenge her.


Both share the same feeling of hopelessness and absolute despair. I would say that shingeki no kyojin (attack on titan) is more violent, and a bit less childish at the begining (no babysitting). Both are scary violent and pwetty good.


Just like totally - atmosphere is the same, setting, degree of darkness, amount of blood... only the claymore women with big swords are replaced by soldiers with normal swords who can swing around like crazy.


They both have the same unique, intense, violent, and serious atmospheres, stories, and characters.


I don't think I've ever seen two series so similar to each other. If you like one you will most likely also like the other.


Yes totally! Shingeko no Kyojin reminded me so much on Claymore! They both wear a similiar feeling, the main character is pushed over his limit to get stronger and is doubted by his comrads because of the resulting changes. He suffers defeat, even though his will is stronger than anything.


Both anime's are great and quite voilent, so be prepared! Somtimes they are bloody as wel, with thor off limps and such. Evenso, I reccoment both!


Both of them are dark fantasy with a decent story and intriguing characters.  Both of them take themselves rather seriously, so no over the top silliness that doesn't fit, and no senseless fan service (that I know of.)  The action is stellar, the music is good, and overall, these are very well put together animes.


Both of these series delve into many dark themes, which is not so much due to the 'showing' as the 'telling'. Both also take place in a medieval European setting with swordsmanship and similar weaponry and depict conflict for what it is - full of bloodand gore with little remorse for the fallen.

If you liked one, the other should be something to look into!  


Both anime show a very similar theme of "humanity being plauged by physically stronger beings." Both anime show a like soldier-class person who can slay these monsters. Claymore may be older but it's a very good anime and has strong, intense emotion and battles, the same is to be said of Attack on Titan. Both are amazing and I would highly recommend either one. 


If you enjoyed either Claymore or Attack on Titan, give the other one a look.  Both anime feature worlds where humanity is facing a much more powerful enemy that has the capacity to destroy the entire human race. Both anime are dark themed and serious, as well as brutal and violent. But the spark of hope of victory against tremendous odds is never quite extinguished.

Both shows highlight a solution that could compromise the integrity and even the very humanity of the fighters and heroes of mankind.

Both shows delve into the morality of killing, and ponder questions of right and wrong, the nature of good and evil. Just how far is one person allowed to go? How far is too far? How much is too much and what is the value of sacrifice?

Intriguing and thought-provoking, fans of either show would do well to check out the other. I'm sure the new show would also be as well appreciated!


Both heavy on combat and action. Both raw and brutal as well. Adults only. Kids stick to Naruto for now.


Both anime have people fighting against monsters using swords, while the human race fears them. Also the general mood is very similar.


this anime is awesom, if you expecting to see some comedy it's not much. this anime is ful of surprises and i can promise you you won't want to miss a thing.

Although they are set in completely different time periods, Deadman Wonderland and Shingeki no Kyoujin both take place in violent worlds where people live on edge, in constant fear. Both feature a protagonists who must make life-or-death choices, and both point out corruption and decadence of the ruling class. If you like a tense story with moments of uneasy peace, these two shows will entertain you.


Agreed, I was going to reccomend this! Deadman Wonderland has very violent action and storyline, and very heart shattering just as attack on titan does. Don't let that make you believe they aren't good anime, because the violent touch is what adds up to the epicness of it all!Both a 9.5/10 in my book! 


Both of these include the main character being a boy who has been thrown into a world of chaos and death for causes unknown. If you like the way one throws you into a world of emotional uncertainty and you never know what to expect (although in Attack on Titan its a little more unexpected) then you will certainly enjoy the other.


While I can't list all my reason because it would contain spoilers, these shows are very much alike in genre and the repective tags you would assign to them. They both have a blood and gore factor that is unique unto itself. Attack on Titan and Deadman Wonderland have different settings and circumstances that bring plot points into place but both share traumatizing experiences for the main character that, once past those events, hardens and strengthens the protagonist.


the things that make both Attack on Titan and Deadman Wonderland awesome are:horrific truths,massive and deep plotlines,perfectly balanced between realistic and make believe, lovable chartacters, twisted and larger than life bad guys.there is so much to love in both of these animes 


they both violate ppl . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 


Both series have a similer feel (despirate and scary) where the main character has no choice where they are and must fight to stay alive. Both shows have their main character determined to get out and are supported by their allies, all trying to get out alive, weather it be Deadman Wonderland or the Walled Civilization.


The atmosphere of the two animes are rather similar and they both portray a rather cynical view on human nature. Both take place in a dystopian setting where the terror is real and the characters have to fight for their lives, fight for what they belive in. Both are heart-rendingly realistic and are truly awesome to watch.


Both of these feature a young boy thrown into a world of chaos and fear, battling for their life while fighting against the corrupt ruling classes. 


Both of these include the main character being a boy who has been thrown into a world of chaos and death, and has to make life or death decisions. Very gory anime not for the faint hearted, and fight for what they believe in.

If you liked Berserk you might like Attack on Titan.  Both anime are in fantasy settings featuring swords and battles.  Both are dramatic with plenty of blood and guts.  Both are action shows with dark themes.  


In both Berserk and Shingeki no Kyojin, we have brutal fantasy worlds where humans are at the mercy of terrifying creatures. And the hero is a jaded kind of soul who has suffered a lot but possesses a grim determination. The thing about these shows is, while violent, their worlds are also stunningly developed. And the conflicts are just intense. Not to mention the characters are superlative, drawing you in with their personal struggles and and the nuances in their personalities. As a result, getting absorbed in their respective plots is an exhilerating experience. It is not possible to say which is a better series, just that if you love one, you will be an instant fan of the other.


Both these series feature a well developed, interesting fantasy setting filled with great characters who all have their own personal and collective struggles. Both series also involve mankind fighting to survive against terrifying enemies. Violence is a strong theme in both, with Shingeki no Kyojin perhaps being more flashy than Berserk, but both can be brutal when required. The intensity that both series exude is one of their best features, and one that makes episodes thrilling to watch. Fans of one should give the other a try, it's unlikely you will be disappointed.


Both series are grim and gritty anime that take place in dark fantasy worlds where human lives are easily ended. There's a lot of focus on combat yet also on character development, but most importantly, there is a rather oppresive and dark mood throughout both that makes me do this rec.


Set in dark, gritty medieval time, both of this series feature some well executed survival against their ferocious enemies. With the major spotlight in combat, both shows deliver some amazing action scenes and both tend to be violent along the way. There’s also a very dark mood that complements both shows greatly, and because of that, I’d say that you probably won’t find anything that matches more like these two do.

If you’re a fan of one, do check the other. You won’t be disappointed. 


In both anime's beginings the protagonist may feel like a determined person but loses his will after an event in their lifes.As well,both animes are centred on people's trust and their lose of sanity.


Both have a similar level of brutality, and are on a similar level of awesomeness. But definately check out the new Berserk Golden Age Arc Movies, they are basically the Berserk series redone, but a bit closer to the manga interpretation, and with beautiful animation. Shingeki No Kyojin is basically the pinnacle of quality for animation and brutality, but for an older series, Berserk is definately a good watch!


Sure thing, can tell anyone who loved this to watch the other thing. Reasons: Medieval setting, both are dark, strange, abnormal and powerful enemies everywhere. Only Berserk is even darker thanks to some quite realistic aspects like rape, hatred and so on.

Highschool of the Dead

Highschool of the Dead

Together with a handful of other survivors, Rei and Takashi set forth to find their families in a world that is rapidly detoriating. Governments have collapsed, the killer disease is out of control, and people everywhere are trying their best to simply live through each day...

Attack on Titan and HSotD are both shows about humans battling creatures who eat humans for the survival of greater humanity. HSotD is set in urban/contemporary Japan and contains a lot of ecchi, while Attack on Titan is medieval sans ecchi, but both have a gritty & realistic atmosphere.


It's the same in a sense where human kind is trying to survive a type of apocalypse. It also both states how a normal human would react in a time of crisis instead of how people say they'll react.


It's all about survival in both of the anime. The enemies of humans are similar and equally vicious.  While Attack on Titan is dark and intense, events in Highschool of the Dead are taking place in a much lighter atmosphere that is spiced up with a bit of humor.  That's where they differ, but overall I think that both of them are worth the watch.


Attack on Titan and Highschool of the Dead are both about a group of teens and an adult who are fighting to survive after the End of the World. With plenty of graphic detail, a great plot line, and death all around, these two animes are definetely something to watch.


Both very similar, due to having to fight for survival. One being zombies and the other being titans.

Some of the music reminded me of blue gender and the shows are kinda the same humans in a hopeless struggle to survive.


Both shows feature some really well executed struggle for survival against their unknown enemies. In both series, humanity is almost extinct and the general feeling of hopelessness is present in both. Even so, the focus of both shows is on the characters that defend humanity in one way or another. So, because of similar themes and quite similar, yet different setting, I’d say that anyone who enjoyed one could at least check out the other. 


Similar themes, both shows are great, not much more to say.  All in all I would say blue gender is better as it isnt ongoing and is complete and satisfying as a series.
