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. 

Anudevil13 Anudevil13 says...

BB and AoT share few similarities in concept. In both series Humanity is at verge of extinction due a supernatural force at work. Gastrea in BB and Titans in AoT.

Under such circumstances humanity is forced to live inside special walls to keep those entities away from them. Humanity only hope are some trained/special individuals who can fight these abnormal monsters and save themselves from impending doom.

Both have lot of bloodshed,gore and are dark themed, While AoT is mainly composed of adult fighters, BB features special children with gifyed abilities.

If you liked one, You'll likely enjoy other too.

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.

Role Role 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.

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

Both Animes are about young ladies with super powers being forced to fight.  Gunslinger Girl, the girls are cybernetically enhanced.  In Black Bullet, the girls are genetic mutants with the strength and speed of the Alien bugs that has invaded the Earth.

Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse

Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse

The year is 1973 when the BETA, a race of aliens discovered on the moon, first arrive on Earth and begin their systematic extermination of the human race. Mankind's only hope lies with Tactical Surface Fighters, or TSFs, piloted by both military elite and would-be trainees such as Yui Takamura, a young girl descended from a long line of Imperial Guards. Alongside other amateurs, she finds herself on the front lines of a final defense against the bloodthirsty monsters, unaware of the brutal consequence that awaits them. Three years later, Yuuya Bridges, a half-Japanese, half-American pilot, is assigned to an elite United Nations squadron tasked with developing new TSFs to beat back the alien forces. As humanity struggles to survive, Yuuya must come to terms with his biases in dealing with both his teammates' and other culture’s tactical fighters, including the veteran pilot Yui Takamura herself.

Fargo Fargo says...

Both of these shows feature a world where humanity is contained and warring against monstrous creatures that threaten their way of life, though Muv-Luv fights with mechs while Black Bullet fights with super-powered, specialized agents. The main male protagonist hangs out with a bunch of female friends and allies and the show tends to focus more on the inner workings of their society and the arising problems as opposed to the bigger global conflict. Both shows hold the same atmosphere and decent accompanying music.

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.
