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...

These two titles definetely have the same air about them.  They're about humanity in a different reality where there is one clear enemy that needs to be defeated.   As you read on, a lot of what you think is true, may not be after all.

In Claymore and in Shingeki no Kyojin there are monsters who kill people, human fused with monsters and the same misterious plot that makes you exited and willing to know how things will be

Hellsing

Hellsing

For centuries, vampires have lurked in the shadows of England's streets. The Hellsing Organization, currently led by Integra Hellsing, has spent centuries fighting these monsters and keeping their existence a secret from the world. Alucard is a vampire sworn to serve Integra and follow Hellsing under her rule; Seras is a fledgling vampire subservient to Alucard, learning about vampire ways while struggling with her own lost mortality. Together they keep England safe from blood-drinking monsters, until a new breed of pseudo-vampire, the Freak, begins attacking people for fun and not to feed. Where are these Freaks coming from and what will Hellsing sacrifice to stop them?

Fight creatures of the night in these dark times is not as easy as one might think. So how do you get rid of what you can't control? Easy, you get one of those creatures of the night to fight for you. And that is how both organizations fight, but is there more things going on than just fighting against the creatures of the night?

The series Blood + and Claymore involve strong female leads that are aloof and cold up front but display tender moments in them.  Each takes part in slaying the demons of the world but also have to look within themselves to control their own demons.  Both have a fantasy like quality to them.

InuYasha

InuYasha

Kagome was just a normal girl, until one day she fell into a well that brought her to feudal-era Japan. After encountering hordes of demons and discovering that she's the reincarnation of a priestess, Kagome must now journey to protect a sacred jewel from evil with the help of a half-demon named Inuyasha. Along the way they make many enemies and friends, and travel between the modern and feudal eras.

Both the villains in InuYasha and Claymore are demons and both of the main characters are half bloods that have to deal with the consequences and what that implies for everyone around them. They each have a special sword with which they use to kill the demons. Kagome keeps InuYasha in check not only for his personality but also for his full demon behavior whereas Claire is kept in check by Raki. They have to try and stay in control of their human selves.

Death Note

Death Note

Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Top-ranked student Yagami Light is disenchanted with the world around him. Through a series of events, he comes into possession of the ultimate power over life and death: a supernatural "death note" which can kill nearly anyone at his whim. As Light sets off on a crusade-turned-killing-spree, investigators from a police task force try to stop the mysterious deaths - including Light's own father, a senior policeman.

Although Death Note seems mildly unrelated to Claymore, both encompass very dark themes and twisted views of death. The characters of Light (Death Note) and Claire (Claymore) have a desire to achieve their original goal, which almost blinds them to the fact of everything else. They are simply put in a struggle for survival.
