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.
Born beneath the gallows tree from which his dead mother hung, Guts has always existed on the boundary between life and death. After enduring a terrible childhood, he spends his adulthood in brutal combat, pitting his strength against others in order to build his own. Life is simple enough for Guts until he meets Griffith, the inspirational, ambitious, and beautiful leader of the mercenaries, the Band of the Hawks. When Guts loses to Griffith in a duel, he is forced to join the group, and, despite himself, finds a sense of camaraderie and belonging amongst them. However, as Griffith leads his soldiers from victory to victory, the bloody wars and underhanded politics reveal a side to him that nobody quite expected. Can Guts, a simple warrior, defend those who have come to mean the most to him, all the while struggling not to lose to the darkness he has carried with him his entire life?
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.
Middle school student Ganta Igarashi witnessed the slaughter of his entire class by the mysterious 'Red Man', and as the only survivor, he was labeled a mass murderer and sentenced to death. Now an inmate at the privately-owned prison and ‘amusement park' known as Deadman Wonderland, Ganta must try to survive in a place where inmates are the main attraction in brutal gladiator-style games. At the same time, he must attempt to uncover the truth behind the ‘Red Man', his mysterious childhood friend Shiro, and why he was the only survivor that bloody day.
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.
In the early 21st century, certain people are exhibiting signs of B-cell growth, a condition that is incurable. Yuji is one of these, who chooses to become a "Sleeper" -- a person who is put into stasis until a cure can be found. The tranquillity of Yuji's sleep is interrupted 15 years in the future, in a very different world. Giant bugs known as Blue have invaded the Earth, eating its resources, and.. human beings. Now all Yuji can do is escape through the city with the ones who saved him from his inevitable death, towards Second Earth... mankind's new home in space.
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.
Much to the annoyance of Kei, he and his childhood friend Katou have died, having been torn apart by a train. But rather than finding themselves at the gates of heaven, the duo materialize in a room full of strangers and a giant black sphere known as GANTZ. As if dying once wasn’t bad enough, the occupants of the room are then forced to embark on dangerous missions to kill strange aliens; missions that very few return from. Now, Kei, Katou, and a well-endowed friend must fight for their freedom with an arsenal of guns, high powered suits, and a very low chance of survival.
This is similar in that they are both tragedies. They have giants involved...although not alien monsters, they are basically the same where it is humans vs. giants. It is a tragedy and twisted in its own way.
In both of these animes people are thrown in to desperate life and death struggle against vastly superior enemy. Gory death scenes of people dying in vain.
Both of these shows depict people fighting against inhuman monsters/aliens that are much stronger than them. Both contain the thrill that any character could be killed, not just minor ones.
