Besides Knights of Sidonia, imo there isn't a single better recommendation out there for Titan than Green Worldz. Period. The plot and environment is not similar - but trust me on this one, it is INCREDIBLY similar as far as the mood and feel, the very creepy and scary monsters/gore levels, the protagonist who watched someone die brutally and wants to become stronger to save others, everything. Some of Green Worldz' shocking death scenes are extremely similar to how the Titan manga is portrayed as well, with a few panels shown in succession from the monster's 'ah ha, I see you' moment to the character noticing, to them being viciously eaten.

I have recommended basically nothing with Titan because I don't believe any of the top recs (Claymore, Berserk, Deadman Wonderland) are good at all except on a few stretched points. Those recs seem to me like they're done as 'best options' since there's nothing better. There's finally something better. Titan and Green Worldz are a PERFECT fit.

Both of these mangas are gory and brutal as humans have to face off against a species more powerful than their own. The more powerful species in both also come in different forms. The facial expressions of pain and anguish and the feeling of there being no hope are present in almost every chapter. The internal emotional struggles are also very prevalent. Both are a great read. Give it a go if you don't want a happy ending. 

Battle Angel Alita

Battle Angel Alita

In a post-apocalyptic world, humans, robots and cyborgs live in the Scrapyard - a landscape of twisted, rusted junk made up of the garbage sent from the above city of Zalem. In this place, the inventor Ido finds a partially-destroyed cyborg amidst the rubble, gives her a new body and names her Gally. With no memory of her past and an instinctual ability to use a powerful martial art known as the Panzer Kunst, Gally matures and relearns life's lessons while she travels the broken landscape, struggles to remember who she is and where she came from, and discovers the mysteries of Zalem.

The character of Misaka reminds me of Alita in a lot of ways (Not least of all being visuals...), both are fearless, kick-ass fighter girls who routinely face off against overwhelming odds. If you liked one, you'd probably like the other.

Both series are aboutconflict between humans & a superhuman/demihuman race. In both cases, one human can use abilities belonging to the enemy race, to help in the fight against said enemy.

Governments have collapsed, the killer disease is out of control, and people everywhere are trying their best to simply live through each day...

These two have something in common: fighting crude creatures for their own lives -- survival. SnK fights Titans(Giants) and HotD fights Zombies. Well, HotD leans more on fanservice but still..

What could, seemingly unrelated series like Attack on Titan and Witch Craft Works, possibly have in common? Badass, overprotective kudderes, that's what. If you read one of those two series, you should very well know what I'm talking about. If not, I can add that in both series the female lead is a badass, overprotective kuudere with an obsession over the male lead. However, story wise, those series are not very similar. It's up to you to decide whether to read them or not, but if you're into female characters like this, at least now you should know where to look.
