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...

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 of these series are action packed sagas of cybernetic champions fighting for truth, justice, and their very lives in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

The Legend of Mother Sarah and Battle Angel Alita take place in a land filled with human trash and a 'kill or be killed' struggle to survive, where our kickass female leads, Sarah and Alita, treck on a journey to discover and uncover the past.  Be it uncovering the whereabouts of her children or Alita discovering her past self, Sarah and Alita are strong, intelligent women in a brutal and  corrupted world.  Similar atmosphere, badass women leads, incredible art, and phenominal plot are but the basics that connect these two of a kind manga. 

Dorohedoro

Dorohedoro

The city of Hole is a desolate town where magic users go to test their powers by disfiguring or killing its people. After being cursed by a sorceror, Kaiman was left with the body of a man and the head of a lizard. Determined to break the spell over him, Kaiman works with his companion, Nikaido, to search for the one who made him this way. Unfortunately, with no memory as to his assailant’s identity there’s only one way for him to locate them: he must bite the head of any magic user he meets so that the man hidden inside him can determine if they are the culprit. As he bites, slashes and kills his way through the cruel magic users, will Kaiman be able to find out who the man in his mouth is, where the one he hunts is hiding and return to normal, while keeping the revengeful magic users at bay?

Besides Dorohedoro being somewhat of a bizarre dark comedy at times and BAA being anything but, imo both of these are a very strong recommendation. Huge worlds with gritty, dark artwork, a plot that moves between groups of characters with tons coming onboard all the time, quite a dark/intriguing/unique story, just overall they feel quite similar.
