Attack on Titan

Attack on Titan

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...

Shares many similarities with Attack on Titan. Such as humanity facing extinction, hiding behind walls, Fighting with special equipment etc. 

USSEnterprise USSEnterprise says...

The two shows have a simular feel to them, with humanity having to combat giant creatures. Black bullet has a slightly lighter tone than Attck on Titan. Both are enjoyable i would recommend you watch both shows.

JackP JackP says...

In both Attack on Titan and Black Bullet, humanity must fight large, man-eatting creatures to survive. If you are a fan of the survival type of anime, both are for you.

GameOver64 GameOver64 says...

Could be considered a rip off, but I enjoyed it because of the similarities.

Black Bullet has Giant bug-things (Gastrea) that are attacking the humans who are very weak in comparison. Lots of death too. Sadness.

Attack on Titan has giant humanoids that attack humans. Lots of death. Sadness.

Black Bullet shares the same "siege" feel as Attack on Titan.

In both, the main character has a "secret weapon".

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says...

The whole concept in these two anime are pretty similar both conatin a war between humans and another species they hardly know about. The fact that in Black Bullet they are fighting these animals which is really similar to how people fight in Attack on Titan. Also in both cases humans rely on a certain group of humans to save them which results in many deaths etc.

If you liked the drama and action in Attack on Titan you should like Black Bullet and the other way around.

Noriko Noriko says...

Both AoT and Black Bullet are somewhat similar, in both anime people are living in secured enviroments surrounded by deadly monsters, and one day something goes wrong. AoT has a better developed story though.

theflex theflex says...

Because the ambientation is very similar. Also the opening is very similar. There's a lot of splatter in both anime.

KenJaeger KenJaeger says...

They have similar story which is based to an apocalypse.They also have the same messages to the viewers, for example that the apocalypse is not their only enemy.To conclude they both have good drama scenes in my opinion and the same main voice actor (Yuuki Kaji) which good because the two anime are similar and Kaji-san is fit for both roles.

Icarus27 Icarus27 says...

the plots are preatty kool witch by the way will help u but as a warning in black bullet there is slight ecchi

nalbuque nalbuque says...

very simmilar themes but black bullet the main characters are much better. both films are post apocalyptic. the both have barriers that monsters are trying to break through. they both have very good action scense. 

wonkuenoemos wonkuenoemos says...

Both of them have same setting where people 'trapped' in specific area as a shelter from their enemy. But in my perspective, AOT/SNK better than BB.

Drasticc Drasticc says...

If you like end of the world scenarios, mystery, and plenty of violence, then these two tittle may be your cup of tea. 

Zabuzaxtr Zabuzaxtr says...

The universe's of these two anime's are very similar.Both stories take place in a post apocalyptic setting and in both of them humans try to fight off enemies bigger than themselves.Also the way humans build walls to stop monsters from getting in is also similar in both anime.Last but not least,they both have good special effects which makes watching them more enjoyable.

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Humanity is on the brink of extinction and has constructed a barrier to live behind. Behind the barrier, giant beasts threaten to consume what's left of the human race. The protagonists train to take down the threat using specialized equipment. Both of these animes follow that plot, and have some gruesome battle scenes. Whatever you do, don't get attached. 

RickGrimes RickGrimes says...

Humanity is at the brink of extinction due to superiror beigings that have arised

In Both the anime humanity hide's behind the wall fighiting for surivival(Titans in AOT and Gastrea in BB)

Certain people are selected to fight these beings (Soilders in AOT and special children in BB)

Attack on Titan has a steam punk setting and Black Bullet is futeristic. But in the end both anime have only one kind of weapon to fight these superior being

Both are dark (atleast BB tries to be)

BloodyRedRoses BloodyRedRoses says...

It's awesome, they both have many similar qualities in the genre and it's just worth watching in general.

MidnightDT MidnightDT says...

Both have several similar qualities such as Fightning in pairs, the art style, and the characters. The main fighting character in Black Bullet reminds me a lot of Yaya from Unbreakable machine doll. the main characters are similar as well. 

huyhn huyhn says...

Both shows give a familiar feeling with characters and their interactions/relationship with one another.

Both MCs often are involved in political strife (due to their meddlesome tendencies of saving everyone) and their political(supervisors) figure(s) having an active role with the MC.

The action combat is very similar as they both fight in pairs together using martial arts technique or unique items/skills. the MC plays as the "controller" often calling orders, while the other is "supernatural" and plays a uniqie important role.

JackP JackP says...

Both shows have people fighting in pairs. The relationship between the two main characters is similar as well. However, the girl in one show is a little younger.

JunoJoo JunoJoo says...

Both have the male protaganist that "controls" the female lead, or something like that.... both have a younger female protaganist that does most of the fighting. And in both, the main characters try to rise through the ranks, and become #1

staffordshire staffordshire says...

main character controlling a little tough girl. if you are into that, then you will enjoy both shows. also both of them are actually quite good and fun to watch, so i recommend watching them.

dlind5 dlind5 says...

The character relationship in both are a "Master-Servant" relation ship between Rentarou Satomi and Enju Aihara are the same as Raishin Akabane and Yaya, and how both Rentarou and Raishin dont see there "servants" as "servants" but as actual people.

Not to mention the similar fighting style in the show and how the "servants" fight either with or for their "masters"

Claymore

Claymore

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?

DLMP DLMP says...

Black Bullet kind of reminded me of few animes. One is Claymore which has similar storyline. Claymore is about these women called "claymores" and they hunt down "Yoma" that cause threat to humans. Claymore is prettty dark, had mature and serious characters, different setting compared to Black Bullet.

Jayage Jayage says...

Black Bullet and Claymore are two animes about girls that have super powers that fight monsters. In both humans fear and hate these girls because they are also half monsters, both are also full of a good amount of action.  

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

In both of these animes, girls fight against monsters who's blood runs in their veins. Some say the girls are monsters too, others just see them as weapons. But there's one thing for certain, only girls can withstand the tainted blood. If you like either of these animes, give the other a fighting chance.

AngelBeatsYui AngelBeatsYui says...

So this is pretty much based on first impressions this recommendation may change as the series go on. So Plastic memories is a spring 2015 anime and as soon as the episode started it had a black bullet theme, the idea of a organisation that pairs a normal human with a non human, well in black bullet it's like a super powered loli but still they both have a similar concept. In both there is drama and some tear jerking moments, plus I think as the series goes one more of these similarities will become clear (I will update this recommendation as the series goes on)

frostizz10 frostizz10 says...

A young guy with a loli that stay together to do their jobs. Where is the difference? It seems less bloody.

PurplePeopleEater PurplePeopleEater says...

The male lead is basically the keeper of the female lead. Both female leads know their time is limited and deal with the fear of the knowledge. The settings are quite different and the line of work is different, but it you want more of that type of relationship then it's a good match. I felt Black Bullet was a bit more sad though and it does contain violence, fighting, monsters, etc which Plastic Memories doesn't. The mood, at least for much of the anime is very similar though.

chad28 chad28 says...

Both Black Bullet and Brynhildr in the Darkness (Gokukoku no Brynhildr) share girls cursed with strange powers that can lead them to their death.

More than that, the male protagonist struggles to protect them from forces that would rather see that happen.

Even though they are serious series, both sprinkle humour throughout the episodes in a well-executed matter.

Hope Hope says...

Both Black Bullet and Brynhildr in the Darkness revolve about a guy who burdens himself with saving humanity (in Black Bullet there is less of humanity to save though) and in both they are assisted by girls with powers they involuntarily received.

Both guys have a strong sense of wanting to protect, to the extend of wanting to give up their own lives for those they care for. Both need to face cruelty and both need to deal with loss. There are many more similarities between the two, but I suggest if you want to find those, you just watch them both.
