Tokyo Ghoul

Tokyo Ghoul

In modern day Tokyo, society lives in fear of Ghouls: mysterious creatures who look exactly like humans -- yet hunger insatiably for their flesh. None of this matters to Ken Kaneki, a bookish and ordinary young man, until a dark and violent encounter turns him into the first ever Ghoul-human half breed. Trapped between two worlds, Ken must survive the violent conflicts of warring Ghoul factions, while attempting to learn more about Ghoul society, his newfound powers, and the fine line between man and monster.

I agree

Reasons you might like Tokyo Ghoul...

jinxcat13 jinxcat13 says...

There are alot of similarities between Attack on Titan and Tokyo Ghoul including the idea that humans are food. the main characters are both attacked by monsters and their lives are drasticaly changed because of it. In attack on titan eren and the gang then dedicate their lives to fighting these monster while in Tokyo Goul the main character has to fight the monster within. both shows will have the familiar sounds of poeple screaming, people dieing, people throwing up, and people fighting for their lives. If you liked one you will like the other. These are two great shows and I cant wait to see more of them both.

essateg essateg says...

Both are gorey, bloody animes, where Humans have been taken off the top of the food chain and are subject to being eaten. Both have a strong and determined male protagonist.

princezach princezach says...

both are gorey, blood filled animes where humans are on the menu, literally. both have great character development that really hits the feels hard when something bad happens to them, and something bad always happens in these animes

xXHanakoXx xXHanakoXx says...

Kind of similar plot with Attack on Titan in a sense that humans are being eaten, but it unfolds differently.

You should try Tokyo Ghoul if you love Attack on Titan, because I loved both and can relate to both.

ccallstar111 ccallstar111 says...

Both discuss the war of humanity versus another species (ghouls, titans). Morality and insanity are common topics. Both main characters deal with internal struggle and have a difficult time finding balance between hatred, power, and friendship. Blood and death are extremely common.

Frawd Frawd says...

They are both bloody, violent and have plenty of thrilling fights where you don't know who will die.

Maryb384127 Maryb384127 says...

both anime take place in a world were  men eating monsters exist. In both anime the main character can *spoiler alert* turn in to said monsters. Both also involve in  internal struggle of the charters trying to control their monster side.

dillontoh1997 dillontoh1997 says...

If you like gore, these anime will satisfy you. In addition, both anime show how rather simple main characters turn into warriors by the end of it, while showing their struggles along the way (pretty typical main character story arc). 

Natsuki97 Natsuki97 says...

nothing wrong with a bit of mystery and gore right? this is something you should definitely watch if you like demons and that sort

abinouaraicha97 abinouaraicha97 says...

i belive that the male lead in this two anime have slow start and the way they gain there power is by having an deadly accident 

about the female lead in both anime are strong (toka anda mikasa ) compared to the male lead thats way i think if you like one of theme you wil like the other 

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Both of these animes feature a protagonist that slowly builds his power across the anime, learning to control his own abilities. He's a young man fighting for his friends to survive, no matter the cost.

Both animes also feature a great deal of blood, interesting fighting techniques, and a strong-willed female lead. Good luck surviving these animes!

RickGrimes RickGrimes says...

Both are dark and gritty, deep characters. AoT has better action scenes while Tokyo Ghoul has...meh.

Both have a decent pacing good story and intresting characters combines with Guts and Blood

Mikasa201 Mikasa201 says...

Both fantastic. Great and sad story, wonderful characters, lots of action and eating people.

HikenNoAsxce HikenNoAsxce says...

Both are Dark and Mature stories, Both have a likeable Protaganist but Tokyo Ghoul has a more complicated Protaganist. Both have a wide variety of great characters other than the protaganist. And both have a badass Female lead

Teach Teach says...

They're both a more mature and darker take on anime. With great stroy that actaully suprises and is hard to predict. They also have great action sequences and are generally a breath of fresh air for anime that dragged me back to it. Also I left because I thought all anime was like Naruto or One peice, I was wrong.

nathanbrauner nathanbrauner says...

they both have amazing stories and similar plot lines in that, the main characters in each series are batteling to either abandon or keep their humanity

FayeCki FayeCki says...

Very similar anime, but different stories. Both have a good amount of action. Main characters are fighting for humanity, within themselves and for everyone else. I highly recommend these anime.

NaomiEX NaomiEX says...

I believe they both have a similar horror-like feel to them. Both has good characters and really interesting stories. They're both about supernatural beings and I think anyone who like AoT or Tokyo Ghoul would like the other

It's vaguely similar but very different at the same time as AoT tells about a nearly extinct  human race hunted by Titans while Tokyo Ghoul tells about... Well ghouls. 

BloodyRedRoses BloodyRedRoses says...

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

JadedEagle17 JadedEagle17 says...

If You liked Attack on Titan, You might enjoy Tokyo Ghoul, because in some ways it's like "Attack on Titan flipped on it's head". They both center around the idea of humans being the prey of non-human beings. And they both feature a half-human protagonist forced into the struggle between the two sides. And they both explore "what is a monster?" and "what is human?" The big differences are that in this case, the "human-eaters" are the underdogs being hunted by a society of humans. While some are dangerous, others are just trying to survive in peace. And while Attack on Titan is post-apocalyptic, Tokyo Ghoul is set in realistic modern society and has a more clandestine/dystopian feel. Regardless of these differences, they are both mature, gorey and bleak series with good characters and if you liked AoT, you'll probably like this.

selvi selvi says...

if you're lookin for ghore anime contains blood, blood, and blood, but still have a good story and plot

Aerythrin Aerythrin says...

Both dystopian anime set in a world where the 'monsters' are trying to eat the humans. Both contain aspects of moral greyness, where it's unclear whether what the humans are doing is right or wrong.

Both include a main character who can transform in some way. It appears that both are artificially made, too, not just natural.

delano delano says...

literally all the death and sadness, but with well developed characters and very nicely animated. interesting plot gets you asking a lot of questions 

maysillee maysillee says...

Although the plots of Attack on Titan and Tokyo Ghoul are very different, they both feature a main character who essentially turns into a "monster" and the mystery surrounding WHY they became that way.  They also share a great cast of diverse characters.

anxme anxme says...

Theyre both action packed and contain the eating of people so thats something I guess and theyre both really good anime generally speaking. The plot is good in both. 

Jarubakit Jarubakit says...

I just want to agree on this recommendation to help out. Now I'm just filling up hundred characters.

pdraven pdraven says...

Both feature humanoid monsters and explicit violence. In addition, they share the common aspect of a human who finds himself turned into a monster they fear (and want revenge against, in Attack on Titan's case) but attempts to use the newfound skills to protect his friends.

YagamiRiku YagamiRiku says...

Both include a once "normal" main character who has a transformation to become the "enemy" in some way. Lots of violence and gore in both. Badass and strong characters, male and female, in both. 

galpal galpal says...

Both anime feacher young men trying to survie in worlds filled with monsters. There troubles worsen when the men turn into the vey monsters there worlds fear. So yea Attack on Titan and Tokyo Ghoul have simeler conflicts to them. I'm sure fans of one will enjoy the other.

lebastek lebastek says...

They're both pretty much the same, Action and Drama, Love em both! <3 XD

The main characters are a lot like eachother, Eren & Kaneki: Weak in the beginning, something happens to em both, they meet lots of new people, the plot begins, really nice all together.

They are both really good, recommend em to everyone.

Mostly people that likes Action, Drama and... different specied main characters.. *wink* >w<

PerfectAssPineapple PerfectAssPineapple says...

They give of the same kinda vibe to them, like you know cannibalism ( kinda )and eccentric characters ect. Also I would personally put both of them in my top five, easy. The characters are well built and are brilliantly designed. I would recommend both for anyone;)

EmmaDoesThings EmmaDoesThings says...

they're both alike. Humans fearing something inhumane. The inhumane thing is eating humans, there's gore, great character development.

tacocat77 tacocat77 says...

both have:

- mysterious man-eating creatures

- main character becomes what they hate

- the "man vs monster" conflict cliche

- great animation

- gore and tragedy :D

niotabunny niotabunny says...

if you're in for an anime that is both gruesome, gory and a lot of deaths, including some interesting methods of death then you should check these two out.  not for the faint of heart by any means, whereas both lead characters are left struggling with their "inner demons" yet, when they finally release them, they begin to understand themselves a bit and try to come to terms with their new life changing situation.

SaltedPistachio SaltedPistachio says...

Spoilers for anyone who hasn't seen AOT

Both series are pretty similar. Conflicted guy struggles in the world he lives and eventually turns into the very thing they hate. Attack on titan does a better job at not only following the manga but also pleasing the viewers but Tokyo Ghoul does have its highlights.

Draker Draker says...

both anime is full of action and litle touch of drama with a very good story plot.I have watched both anime and i loved them both.

ohitschelly ohitschelly says...

Both are very gory and delve deeper into some dark themes.

nightfall0 nightfall0 says...

They both have action-packed storylines with troubled main characters. Though the main characters are very different, they both change in some way during the story. Bothe have bits of gore, well one has a lot of gore

Psychodeathgeass Psychodeathgeass says...

I just like Attack on Titan, first series isnt interesting for me, both the second one was much more better and now I really like the anime also manga.

Attack on Titan has an interesting world, the people live without hope and fight with Titans. Many deaths, too much pain and good characteres. Thats why I like it.

i was trying to watch Tokyo Ghoul and I almost finished but I couldnt stand the main character. Also the story was the same again and again and i was boring. 

Quintonn Quintonn says...

People are being eaten and in both the main character is only half human plus there is a lot of death

Touka3000 Touka3000 says...

It's an awesome anime to watch and very interesting as well! If you haven't seen it yet, give it a try! 

balldep69 balldep69 says...

Both of these animes are in an action one with a bunch of monsters the main charactor has to defeat. For AOT it is the titans and for Tokyo ghoul it is the other ghouls. Also both of the main charactors gain a strong power to help them during the show.

trashelisous trashelisous says...

they have gore, plot twisters, an amazing plot to follow, and a male main character. the two main characters differ because one of them is extermely hot headed, but the other is calm and composed while having a mental breakdown.

yet they are still tremendously good and slightly similar.

NasalaEdItS NasalaEdItS says...

It's packed with a ton of action and scenes that will have you on the edge of your seat.The main protagonist of each show kind of have this irony on themselves that you'll come to see.Whether fighting Titans,People,or Ghouls I can asure you that both of these anime's will most likely make you shed some tears.

CherryGrimmie CherryGrimmie says...

THEY ARE BOTH AMAZING!!!!! 

so go and watch :) and ENJOY

uncreativeusername uncreativeusername says...

Both animes involve another type of species, and humans fighting the species in order to survive.

shyguyevolved shyguyevolved says...

they have there similarities and are pretty different however they are both good shows just not for young kidds..............................................................

SamKermit SamKermit says...

They both include a the main character gaining a special power that everyone else views as special like how Kaneki is a one eyed ghoul and Eren can transform into a titan, both things create conflict for the character and builds up drama that adds to what happens later in both animes. A portion of other characters view these things as a way to help the other portion view it as a threat and the character needs to die. As the animes move on these things start to get more fimiliar to the character and the character uses them for the benifit of others, but sometimes it can be seen as putting others in harms way. too. Both have a sinilar plot line by the main characters recieving the power and we then watch how that affects thier lives and others, too.

Aspie Aspie says...

Both of them have a canabalistic side to them. And in both anime series the main male character can transform into what the humans call their enemy. Though the male character chooses to help his friends or his country by assuming the form of the supernatural existence they have buried within their body’s.

talk77 talk77 says...

its dramatic and they both turn into something society hates as well there are many characters in both that keep getting developed and you cant help to watch more and more

mykaa mykaa says...

both have themes of horror, extreme violence and action. the main characters become what they hate and end up being only half human

Piru3Peruna Piru3Peruna says...

IT was soooooo Good, just watch It 😂😂 But if you don’t like Blood then maybe you should not watch it. (Sorry For my bad english😂) But yeah it’s my favorite series 😅

caitace caitace says...

I can see why this is a recommendation. They both base of a conflict between human and some kind of species (ghoul or titan). The main characters have many similarities, one main one being the both have aspects of both sides (humans vs some kind of species). I totally recommend this. WATCH ITTTTT

FangSoul777 FangSoul777 says...

tokyo goul is simular in the sense they are both dark and focuse on an event that lead them to where they are now 

MOoonlightchild MOoonlightchild says...

The shows are both interesting..... by that i mean dont eat when ur watching them...................................................................................................................................................

oZEROo oZEROo says...

Both have main characters that become monsters.  If you like one toy should hopefully enjoy the other. They are also both full of action!

VernBFF VernBFF says...

i think you would like both because they are both dark anime about monsters and humans. attack on titan has a main charictor who can turn into a tiatin and tokyo ghoul has a main charecter that is part ghoul.

Jaimefm Jaimefm says...

Both anime have a plethora of blood, guts, and heartbreaking deaths. In worlds where humans are no longer at the top of the food chain, both main characters learn what it really means to face their demons. Both also force the viewer to really think about what makes someone human, and at what point their humanity isn’t lost. 

Ashley159 Ashley159 says...

They both have a lot of action in them and they both worry about being overrun by the enemy. They might be different stories but they both are great. 

adeil adeil says...

The principal characters want the best for the world and they would do anything to protect the people they love and the whole world. Born as humans but eventually because different situations they are special, kaneki was about to die until the doctor safe his life and become half ghoul, and Eren was the son of a doctor who he somehow give him the key to create or become a titan.  

emylyebunny emylyebunny says...

Those animes look the same and the characters are similar. Eren and Kaneki has the same personnality I think! If you like Tokyo Ghoul, you will love Attack On Titan because of all suspense this anime has. If you like Attack On Titan, you will love Tokyo Ghoul because the horror/fiction is more pushed.

MeiSieuIsStarlord MeiSieuIsStarlord says...

 Both animes discuss interaction between humans and a human-eating race of beings, in a society focused on both fighting for the existence of humanity, and fighting against the existence of the other race. Both animes also have individuals that cross the boundaries between both races in the anime, either by taking a neutral stance, fighting for the opposite side than their born race, or literally being both human and part of the human-eating race. 

Both of these animes explore the complications of being part of a war you never asked to be part of, and being the main pawn/leader in a battle that you were definitely not qualified for.

There are many character deaths in both. They are gory, emotional, brutal, cynical, hopeful, and insightful parallels on how we treat controversial decisions and individuals in society.

AnimePixel AnimePixel says...

They do have a lot in common. Tokyo Ghoul is about Ghouls who camouflage themselves with humans, living the same lives as them, except that they also eat them and they also have their own special powers that include additional body parts like tails/wings/random long bone things that stick out of their bodies to kill people with. Attack on Titan is about people who are confined in a walled-in space with titans that attack them every once in awhile Both main characters hadn't wished to become a titan/ghoul, but had to deal with it. Some people in the animes accept that they are different, but others don't. There are many characters that support both main characters despite their changes, but many others backlash them because they are monsters. Both characters became half-humans even tho they were originally both humans which shows how similar their situations are. So I highly recommend both ways because both animes are great pieces of work.

jacobmyman jacobmyman says...

the anime is a masterpiece 

in my opinion, it's the first no number 1 anime i have ever watched, i mean yeah i've watched a lot of animes including all of the 2000s but i got to admit it, attack on titan is the best of the best......if you wanna watch some real killing-loving-hating anime then go for attack on titan

the show might not look like it at first when you start watching but when you reach the middle bro, you would wanna keep going without stopping man 

the anime is incredible bro...if you love anime and you're not or haven't watch attack on titan then you're missing bro, you're missing the most incredble anime there've ever been

anssattar33 anssattar33 says...

  • I want to watch this plz upload it 
  • it series very famous so i want to watch 
  • it's for special for me
  • i like this type of series
  • it's different anime from other

Beth0410 Beth0410 says...

They are very good animes. Both of the main characters are attacked by the 'monsters' from their world and then turned into one themselves(Eren as titan shifter, Ken as half-ghoul.) Humans are targets of the ghouls and titans to eat so there are groups within the anime who train to defeat the monsters. In Tokyo ghoul some would like to coexist where in AOT the titans do not have any thoughts on anything. 

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?

I agree

Reasons you might like Claymore...

TheBlackYeti TheBlackYeti says...

Both anime share a general feeling of unease and hopelessness. If you enjoyed "Claymore" for the violence there is (will be) plenty of that to be found in "Attack on Titan". In both anime there are monsters that are trying to destroy mankind and in both anime there is a group of "soldiers" who fight them.

Both shows also share a similar color palette and animation style.

If you liked one you should like the other.

rashura rashura says...

Very similar mood, monsters/titans invading human territory and feeding on them. Very in your face brutality with lots of fighting and deaths. If you like serious animes with no mercy, then this is for you.

element72 element72 says...

Yep I would say its a mix of claymore and rainbow. I added Rainbow as a recommendation below.

azanimefan azanimefan says...

If you liked Claymore you might like Attack on Titan.  Both anime are in fantasy settings featuring swords and monsters, both seem to highlight neigh impossible to win wars, with humans cowering in fear from some sort of monster which feeds on them, and include a focus of the story on characters who's job it is to battle those monsters to protect humanity.  There are other similarities but those would be spoilers.

snivets snivets says...

Set in worlds where humans live in a constant state of fear, both Shingeki no Kyoujin and Claymore feature highly specialized warriors battling monsters for the sake of humanity. Both share a cold, cruel world outlook, and an atmosphere of futility and violence. I think fans of either show would enjoy the other.

YellowNinka YellowNinka says...

Both have a very dark atmosphere. I also find the art to be similar in some ways. Plenty of blood and gore to go around. I just started Attack on Titan but I can already tell I'll like it as much as Claymore.

Naga Naga says...

Both series are set in grim, medieval time where humanity struggles against its man-eating nemesis. The main focus of both shows would be on humanity’s defenders (both are some sort of military) and their struggle to survive against all odds. There’s blood, there’s violence and there’s revenge, so if you’re a fan of one it wouldn’t hurt to check out the other one. 

Brad Brad says...

Both these series have similar settings and the same bleak tone created by the need to fight a powerful enemy against all the odds. A sense of futility is conveyed in both, with revenge and violence being strong themes throughout. Strong female characters are also prominent in both series. Any more details would e spoilers, but i think it's a safe bet that if you enjoyed one, you will enjoy the other.

KiyoneSaya KiyoneSaya says...

Both anime showcase unknown creatures inhabitating the world. With people willing to fight with said creatures and are some how related.

hunnybeee hunnybeee says...

Both Attack on Titan and Claymore are about monsters eating people and someone who is trying to stop them .Both shows are really creepy and in the both shows the buildings look old.In the both shows someone very important to the main character dies and he/she becomes a warrior to avenge her.

YinZ YinZ says...

Both share the same feeling of hopelessness and absolute despair. I would say that shingeki no kyojin (attack on titan) is more violent, and a bit less childish at the begining (no babysitting). Both are scary violent and pwetty good.

Scythwolf Scythwolf says...

Just like totally - atmosphere is the same, setting, degree of darkness, amount of blood... only the claymore women with big swords are replaced by soldiers with normal swords who can swing around like crazy.

Loz25 Loz25 says...

I don't think I've ever seen two series so similar to each other. If you like one you will most likely also like the other.

Tinkerbellx3 Tinkerbellx3 says...

Yes totally! Shingeko no Kyojin reminded me so much on Claymore! They both wear a similiar feeling, the main character is pushed over his limit to get stronger and is doubted by his comrads because of the resulting changes. He suffers defeat, even though his will is stronger than anything.

Aniad Aniad says...

Both anime's are great and quite voilent, so be prepared! Somtimes they are bloody as wel, with thor off limps and such. Evenso, I reccoment both!

KillianSeraphim KillianSeraphim says...

Both of them are dark fantasy with a decent story and intriguing characters.  Both of them take themselves rather seriously, so no over the top silliness that doesn't fit, and no senseless fan service (that I know of.)  The action is stellar, the music is good, and overall, these are very well put together animes.

Grach Grach says...

Both of these series delve into many dark themes, which is not so much due to the 'showing' as the 'telling'. Both also take place in a medieval European setting with swordsmanship and similar weaponry and depict conflict for what it is - full of bloodand gore with little remorse for the fallen.

If you liked one, the other should be something to look into!  

AruValentine AruValentine says...

Both anime show a very similar theme of "humanity being plauged by physically stronger beings." Both anime show a like soldier-class person who can slay these monsters. Claymore may be older but it's a very good anime and has strong, intense emotion and battles, the same is to be said of Attack on Titan. Both are amazing and I would highly recommend either one. 

Sianeka Sianeka says...

If you enjoyed either Claymore or Attack on Titan, give the other one a look.  Both anime feature worlds where humanity is facing a much more powerful enemy that has the capacity to destroy the entire human race. Both anime are dark themed and serious, as well as brutal and violent. But the spark of hope of victory against tremendous odds is never quite extinguished.

Both shows highlight a solution that could compromise the integrity and even the very humanity of the fighters and heroes of mankind.

Both shows delve into the morality of killing, and ponder questions of right and wrong, the nature of good and evil. Just how far is one person allowed to go? How far is too far? How much is too much and what is the value of sacrifice?

Intriguing and thought-provoking, fans of either show would do well to check out the other. I'm sure the new show would also be as well appreciated!

triplestrike triplestrike says...

Both heavy on combat and action. Both raw and brutal as well. Adults only. Kids stick to Naruto for now.

4nime4ddict 4nime4ddict says...

Both anime have people fighting against monsters using swords, while the human race fears them. Also the general mood is very similar.

lewis8500 lewis8500 says...

this anime is awesom, if you expecting to see some comedy it's not much. this anime is ful of surprises and i can promise you you won't want to miss a thing. 

Gavia Gavia says...

Both are dark action series where the main characters face off against monsters.

In both shows there is a sense of futility about the situation, coming from both the difference in power between the protagonists and the monsters, as well as the nagging fears that humans may be the true monsters after all.

The series have similar settings, with similar levels of technology found in the worlds.

If you like one you should try out the other.

thatotakugirl thatotakugirl says...

Both Claymore and AOT take place in mideval worlds populated by monsters who eat humans. They also follow a protagonist with the power to stop these monsters, but their powers are feared by normal society. Both series are very grim, and what little glimmers of hope the characters are allowed to bask in are cut short quickly.

MindCrush MindCrush says...

Many common themes and similarities in visual style (albeit Claymore is a bit older). If you love one, then chances are the other will also do it for you.

Jayage Jayage says...

Both Claymore and AOT are very similar for one both are set in the medieval times, where humans are fighting against man eating monsters. Both animes have alot of fun kickass action scenes and both also have really badass female characters.

Jaabbi15 Jaabbi15 says...

I see a similar vibe going on between Attack on Titan

Claymore has their Yomas, while Attack on Titan have their Titans.

Their are a specailized group of people who take down these human-eating monsters. 

Both main characters have had their families torn apart(literally) by these creatures

The female leads both swear to protect the male leads. 

I prefer Attack on Titan over Claymore, only because of the anime design, but thats just me. I deff recommend Claymore

Maisuke Maisuke says...

Well, Attack on Titan is in the line of gore animes with brutal scenes. If you want a similar anime, I would prefer Claymore. Although Claymore is also sword fighting and such, it is not mythical like Attack on Titan having titans in their era. But if you're really in to gore animes, these animes are perfect to satisfy your crave for brutal and sadistic scenes. :> I hope you'll have fun watching and reading.

LordKira1 LordKira1 says...

Both feature humans fighting for their survival and a protagonist with powers from the ''enemy''. Also Claymore is amazing and if you haven’t seen it, you really need to. Like, stop whatever it is you were thinking of doing today and watch this show right now.  

dudzor dudzor says...

Both anime presents high amount of drama and gore/bloody/epic fights.I would say Attack on titan is definetly slower in the term of Action.

Xiomax Xiomax says...

both will make you stare souless at your screen trying to process wtf just happend. Both series are fucking epic!

PandaBear87 PandaBear87 says...

Both center around the theme of "the best way to fight monsters is with monsters" (or fight fire with fire). 

AmazingLagann AmazingLagann says...

The thing that I enjoyed about both Attack on Titan and Claymore was the actual suspense that comes in each battle when anyone can die. No one is safe, therefore there is actual tension in fights. 

Also human eating monsters, but I'm fairly certaint that people don't have interests that specific. 

animerandom animerandom says...

Both action packed, involves the slaying of human-like creatures and beautifully animated

yamiksha yamiksha says...

n times of olde, humans live in constant fear of demons known as yoma.

While Clare fights the yoma plaguing the land, can Raki help her in her struggle to retain her humanity?

notoriousj0e notoriousj0e says...

if you like a dark, mature anime where people kill monsters with swords watch attack on titan. It is far more mature, fleshed out, and visually appealing than Claymore

Nauman Nauman says...

Both anime have action, violence and revenge don't know if claymore can be categorised in military as well but its close enough. Attack on titan's animation can not be compared to claymore neither there are as many characters in claymore but the plot is similar as the main character loses someone who was precious to them to some creature so he/she seeking revenge gets stronger and is aided by companions to acheive their goal.

animefavs12345 animefavs12345 says...

I agree I watched Attack On Titan and really liked the storyline so I went to watch Claymore and found It was very similar in aspects!

officialtrapp3r officialtrapp3r says...

Action in both is good and both have a great plot/story you'll follow and enjoy, the mc in aot may get on your nerves but mikasa makes up for it 

Threeze Threeze says...

I watched Claymore first, and Attack on Titan later.  They both have the theme of humans are prey to the monster.  I feel AoT took it one or two steps in a more extreme direction, or rather made it more real.

Aside from this theme there wasn't much other overlap.  I would reccommend Claymore to anyone who wants to see a different take on that same idea.

stevensrmiller stevensrmiller says...

Both are about battles with powerful, enigmatic monsters, with "our" side using simple weapons. There is a great sense of poignance in these stories. The warriors mostly assume they are going to die soon, but for a purpose that leaves no other option open to them. The artistic style is 100% serious, with none of the comedic bits that intrude on so much otherwise good anime.

katia84 katia84 says...

They feel the same. Its humans vs monsters they don't understand and then they find out things are not exactly what they seem at first (lots of struggle and tragedy mixed in). Also great animation.

Jeerus Jeerus says...

art similarty 

intense story 

sword play 

note: claymore has only girls as fighters 

KawaiiRose KawaiiRose says...

Attack on Titan and Claymore have many simularities, but the main theme of Human vs Monsters is the clear winner to tie these togther. Both have elements of violence as our characters fight for their lives and they both battle monsters of unknown origin that we learn about throughout the story. While Claymore only have Female fighters Attack on Titan have both Men and Woman fighting alongside eachother. Both are great Anime with twist and turns in their adventure.

MintyAmbitions MintyAmbitions says...

If you like like 'em with fighting and an outside source monster... these fit. 

Action with alarming depth and emotion in story, a likely match and two fabulous anime - like one, likely like the other.

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress

During the industrial revolution, mankind is threatened by the sudden emergence of undead monsters who can only be killed by piercing their heart through an iron plate. Those bitten become one of them. Called the “Kabane,” these monsters exploded in number. The Hinomoto people built fortress stations and barricaded themselves inside. Only steam locomotives, the Hayajiros, can travel between them.

Reasons you might like Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress...

Shikiya Shikiya says...

Walled fortress to keep out the humans that became monsters, and one person who comes to posess a mean to defeat the monsters more effectively. Both protagonists lost their most precious person to the monster. Bushi in Kabaneri equals Military in SNK. First episode, the wall falls in both of the series.

You have to watc both of them to see the exact similiarities, but they are similar in many ways. Both of plenty bloodthirsty.

However, SNK is set in European setting, with renaissance technology. Kabaneri is set in premodern Japan type of society with technologies varying from 19 to 21st century. Being bit by Kabane in Kabaneri signifies that you will become a Kabane too, like a zombie, but people are eaten like snacks by titans in SNK

kremlin kremlin says...

Only watched the first ep but it looks like a no brainer with regards to Kabaneri and Titan being of a similar type

Sinlessclown Sinlessclown says...

Walled fortresses to stop monsters entering. Spoiled people who hid within the walls. They have some simililarities but you need to watch both to understand. And I recommend that you do watch them both, but be warned there is plenty of blood spewing everywhere.

calophichan calophichan says...

In both we have a post-apocylaptic world where groups of people live inside a walled city to survive a threat to humanity. In the case of Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, the people know of more than one city and the cities are connected by railways and armored trains shuttle supplies and people back and forth. Trains still have to pass through stations that have succomed to the disease, which is how the disease can spread.

Notably, Kabaneri has the same director and animation studio as Attack on Titan, but looks worlds nicer than AoT ever did. Hopefully it doesn't suffer from the same pacing issues.

yamiksha yamiksha says...

First Episode Review: The first anime to catch my attention since Attack on Titan. Finally something that looks really good.

The story is promising. Demons rampaging and possible Demon Powers for our hero who is basically Eren Yeager from AoT except he's an inventor and it looks like he has a love interest.

The animation will please any old school anime fan. The art is a detailed traditional style of animation. AoT has great art but I think this anime has a little more love and attention in it. I've never been a fan of the more clean computer drawn feeling a lot of new anime have. Something goes missing in the art process when computers are used for the majority of the work.

The music fits well with the goings on and it would not be unpleasant to watch the opening and ending credits instead of skipping over them.

I don't mind that the main character is basically Eren-AoT but maybe the future episode will show us something to set him apart. It's to soon to make any calls on the supporting cast.

In conclusion I'm eagerly looking forward to the next episode.

ilay ilay says...

It is basically the same.

Zombies instead of titans, one stubborn character, weird governmen,t people living in fear...

Beebo Beebo says...

Both have people living in protected zones in fear of invading and dangerous creatures that aren't well understood. 

dudsso101 dudsso101 says...

Imagine Attack on Titan but instead of titans there are zombies, and instead of one big section of walls, there are sections of walls around the world called stations. It is really good and definetly would recomend.

PurplePeopleEater PurplePeopleEater says...

As soon as episode one of Kabaneri began I thought "Attack on Titan!" with zombies instead of giants. Both anime have a lead male who is somehow more involved with the enemy (giants or zombies) than the average person and in a way is half human and half enemy. The setting is during a time when humans have built a city  within a wall and cut off from the rest of the world for the most part. The main character has a passion to protect the humans even though many of the humans fear him because he is part monster. It will be interesting to see where Kabaneri goes. It might just end up better than attack on titan. Either way, if you liked one, you will probably like the other.

kawaiihimesama kawaiihimesama says...

Made by the same studio, and with a similar vibe, the brutality, violence and drive of fight-to-survive makes kabaneri of the iron fist a similarly enjoyable watch to attack on titan.

phoenixaurora phoenixaurora says...

Kabaneri and AoT are very very similar:

-Wit Studio, Hiroyuki Sawano music, cinematic feel, unique art style, fluid fight scene animation, lots of blood/deaths/violence, similar pacing

-walled fortresses surrounding isolated cities, apocalyptic steampunk fantasy, quasi-historical setting (Edo-period Japan in Kabaneri, anachronistic elements of different European time periods corresponding with different levels of cities)

-relentless grim dark tone, harsh ethical choices of abandonment and suicide, greedy people who only care about their own survival, trampling others, corrupt police force that the MC derides as cowards, oppressive hierarchy, government being brutal to its own people

-undead monsters (zombies in Kabaneri, man-eating Titans in AoT) outnumbering a dwindling population of humans, monsters can only be killed by destroying a certain part of their body

-bloodthirsty MC who doesn't want humanity to hide behind walls anymore and starts fighting back against the monsters, insanely determined to eliminate the monsters and protect humanity despite others fearing him, tragic backstorywith family death

-highly skilled and deadly female lead, MC's loyal friend who refuses to abandon him

-MINOR SPOILERS: first episode invasion and evacuation, when the initial attack occured MC goes back to his house to get his secret weapon, human-monster hybrids that are humanity's last hope, MC having to face much distrust and suspicion that he's one of the monsters

Hutai Hutai says...

Same studio and concpet - giant creatures are killing humans.Both main characters gets affected by Titan and Kabaneri.Both main characters lost their loves ones.Both main characters are trying to protect humans.Both main characters are killing those who are attacking humans.Both main characters had to defend their humanity.Both main characters had friends who defended them and accepted their inhumanity.Both main characters lost home.Both main cities were affected by Titans/Kabaneri.Oh let me thing... AoT didn't had a train yet. But I guess these anime are unique right... Like all of these ideas are original. :) yay

Gameboy117 Gameboy117 says...

This anime should in be at the very top of the list. Not only does this anime give off the same vibe of Attack On Titan, but it is also hosted by the exact same director! If you want to watch a show that is very, very similar to Attack On Titan, then please ignore everything and everyone else on the list of recommendations list for now, and go and watch this anime. It's a must and it will not disappoint i.e. it is so similar to AOT it might as well have been Season 2 of AOT (lol).

This anime is too similar to Attack On Titan, the art style, the graphics and animation, and even the concept. Simply put, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is Attack On Titan, but with Zombies instead of Giants.Like the famous AOT series, the anime also comes with an OP character called Mumei, the only difference between her and Mikasa and Levi, is that the former characters are less annoying and much more intelligent. Either way, both the shows have a main protagonists who is unhappy with the way things are and wish to gain power. They both protagonists have a scary facial expressions at time, and recieve power-ups from the creatures they hate the most. In AOT's case, that would be Erens Titan transformation, whilst in kabaneri of the iron fortress, that would be Ikoma's abilities he recieved from getting bitten by the Zombie and surviving.Great animes, loaded with lots of action and cool fight scenes. Plenty of gore and sadness to go around. Not even children are spared from this anime's monster world. A must watch for all AOT fans :)

AoiNomura AoiNomura says...

Mankind lives in fear because of the so called kabane...similar setting to Attack on Titan..protagonist is vengeful and wants to defeat the enemies

Amzillaa Amzillaa says...

Humanity has been driven into a corner due to a species preying on them and they have very little way to defense themselves against it except for fleeing. Both in a sort of midieval to steampunk setting and the fight scenes are very good. The storyline of both anime eventually differ gravely although they seem very similar in the beginning.

cm1000 cm1000 says...

Both Attack on Titan and Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress are set in a post apocalyptic world. They are both about how people try to survive in this world.

In both of these anime the action scenes are done very nicely. 

casandra29 casandra29 says...

these 2 titles are similar in many ways like the lead characters personalities, the walled cities and cowardly citizens. There are many other similarities as well. 

ShowerOfSunshine ShowerOfSunshine says...

Both shows are produced by the same studio and also follow a similar storyline. In addition, some of the characters are similar e.g. you have a badass maingirl in both. Both follow the route of survival.

Nicknames Nicknames says...

Both shows feature a post-apocalyptic world in which mankind was brought to the brink of extinction and has walled itself to remain safe. While the threat is different and the world they take place is different (Attack on Titan is set in a world similar to a medieval Europe and people is attacked by titans, while Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is set in a feudal-like Japan and humanity is attacked b zombies) they sure have the same feeling, so if you liked one make sure to check the other!

ManyueruDesu ManyueruDesu says...

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is basically Attack on Titan, but in a different time period. Both anime offer lots of action and suspense. Definitely worth a watch. 

Sparklypantz Sparklypantz says...

Same shit, but with a twist. Both has superb animation, and your average shonen male lead character.

abcabc123123 abcabc123123 says...

Everything from the plot to the story is extremely similar. Walls protecting people, MC driven by revenge, horrifyingly strong enemies, dark setting. If you like one you'll like the other.

Roke0sama Roke0sama says...

maybe the same story at the begining but it has its own taste and for me i liked it more than attack on titans cause of the ending great anime worth watching :)

Jarubakit Jarubakit says...

I just want to agree on this recommendation to help out. Now I'm just filling up hundred characters.

Delusionalenigma Delusionalenigma says...

These anime have the same plot with different premises. While Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress is noticeably more steampunk than Shingeki no Kyojin, the differences just about end there. The threat of the Kabane is equal to the threat of the Titans, with a select few being more equipped to fight than others because they have their feet dipped in two different pools - that of the enemy and that of mankind. The main distinction between these two anime is the ending. About halfway through, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress takes a turn from being an anime about survival against a large and overwhelming force to one of personal revenge and the will to remain true to oneself. Overall, there are many parallels between these two anime as they even have many of the same staff including but not limited to the director, Tetsurou Araki, and Hiroyuki Sawano as musical composer therefore allowing Kabaneri to have a similar feel to Attack on Titan. 

cronognosis cronognosis says...

They're both steampunk, apocalyptic scenarios where humans are on the brink of extinction, but an adamant protagonist and his companions gamble their humanity for a chance of survival.

DianaTaiTan DianaTaiTan says...

This serie is VERY similar to AOT and personally, I liked this series even more than AOT. Although people who are interested or is wanting to see something as amazing, I definitely recommend this Anime :)

maysillee maysillee says...

both shows are action packed and have a wide and diverse cast of characters. the protagonist in both is irreparably changed, making him both dangerous and valuable. each show also has the element of humanity grappling against the seemingly surmountable odds presented to them by a terrifying enemy. 

sonyaamaa sonyaamaa says...

I definitely agree. This have so much in common, it's almost laughable. It is so intense and action-packed, just like Attack On Titan. I honestly wished I watched this slower. Definitely a must-watch. 

Oblithian Oblithian says...

Very similar premise, with diferent characters and slightly different approach. Not nearly as good as AOT, but definitely worth watching.

Franzi Franzi says...

They are exactly the same! Kabaneri is Attack on Titan with trains (and zombies instead of titans).

weetbit weetbit says...

They have a very similar story line - both are about cities attempting to survive being overrun by beings stronger than themselves; Attack on Titan focuses on Titans (large humanoid creatures hellbent on devouring and destroying the city) and Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress attempts to survive and onslaught of creatures relatable to zombies. Both a little gory but action-packed and keep you on the edge of your seat.

emmaalyss21 emmaalyss21 says...

in both shows, mankind is fighting a desperate battle against monsters. The main character is someone who wants to protect others due to a previous experience, and go through some genetic modification. They both become a type of mutant species, part monster part human, and they use the monster part of them in order to kill and destroy the monsters and drive hem back.

puranborusu puranborusu says...

The feeling of the two are very similar. Both are very well made, like how the fighting scenes give you an exciting feeling and how the music enhances the feeling of the story etc. (Maybe it's because they were directed by the same director.) 

They are about surviving, death, fighting and protecting themselves from "monsters" which origin is unknown (so far). The main character wants to fight the evil side and stands out in some way in both. I got the feeling that the humans were powerless against the "monster threat" in the same way. 

ArgenTyger ArgenTyger says...

Both post-apocalyptic, if you can call AoT that. Both are very similar. The main characters’ struggle to beat the odds. To return humanity to its former glory. To  Go “Beyond the walls”. To save humanity from complete annihilation and  extinction. Both “over-powered”; both stubborn; a raging fire lite in their eyes. Determination to see everything back to normal, or as normal as can be.

oZEROo oZEROo says...

So in both shows the MC becomes the thing that they despise. They are also both appocalyptic shows where humanity must fight against monsters. I love both shows, and each of them keep you on the edge of your seat!

AdamRB AdamRB says...

Humanity faces an existential threat from an enemy that wants to eat them, to protect themselves they build large walls. Created by Wit Studio, Directed by Tetsurō Araki.

YXNGCXDILLAC YXNGCXDILLAC says...

Humanity surviving against an ennemy stronger than them with only one stronghold remaining; in aot the walls and kabaneri the train. Both have a dark atmosphere set in an apocalyptic world.

Denewa Denewa says...

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress turns its own drab and hopeless world into something gorgeous, creating a hellscape you might not mind visiting. Even if you love the way Attack on Titan looks, it doesn't take place in the kind of world you would ever want to live in, but Kabaneri succeeds more as spectacular escapism, especially if you're partial to steampunk. The show is always playful and generous with its use of color and light, even in its brownest and dirtiest places. There are bright blue skies, pastel pink kimonos, and even radiant purple zombie guts with fiery orange blood vessels pulsing through them. There's a spark of beauty in every scene, and the final product looks like no other anime out there.

lollygangster lollygangster says...

they are really similar. the last of humanity fighting for survival against monsters. military, big walls, the main character being part monster, etc

Beth0410 Beth0410 says...

The setting for both is a post-apocylaptic setting where the main character has the powers, transformation of the 'monsters' that threaten humanity survival. I would recommend both but they do have quite a bit of graphic scenes revolving blood

ShowerOfSunshine ShowerOfSunshine says...

Both of the story lines are fairly similar, the main characters in both of these shows want to kill something that has killed their family/a member of their family. Moreover, these shows are both exciting and there is usually something happening in each episode.

panikinga panikinga says...

Both  animes are set in te world where humanity is in danger due to another race and its extraordinary capabilities (vampires/titans). There is something really simmilar and you will feeel that while watching, but the atmosphere of the animes is quite different. In my opinion "Attack on Titan" is much more tragic and moving. "Seraph of  the End" is definitely more positive. Also the characters are more likeable. Main heroes - Eren and Yuichiro are both young but tough guys who decided to avenge their families and friends in the battle.

MarasM3 MarasM3 says...

They both have to do with main character's whose lives have been upset due to others and who must find power to get their revenge.

Breaky Breaky says...

Altough it's different, there is a similarity between the two regarding the idea of revenge and a supressed human society. The supressors are entirely different, and they actually have a running community in AoT. You get very attached to the characters very quickly and the good ones doesn't always survive. It bugs me from time to time, but overall it's a good anime if you enjoyed AoT.

GhadyK GhadyK says...

The people in both shows have the fear of human race extinction

the main character in both shows have revenge to take for what the enemy did to whom they call their family

and they are both kind of annoying.

the humen live in a small closed area to protect them from the infected outside life.

Anachor Anachor says...

Both have similar plots, with humankind being held down by another species. The protagonists have similar goals (though one is way more irritating than the other). Both lose their families and have their eyes set on revenge.  When it comes to action, AOT wins because they have a Mikasa and a Levi. But if I were to compare the first 12 Eps of Attack on Titan with Seraph of the End, the latter would come ahead slightly.

Michajel Michajel says...

Young boy lost his family bc of evil monsters (which are also trying to kill all the people). Now the boy joins last human army to fight with those monsters. But he has something monstrous inside him too and it's something someone gave to him to have power to fight with those monsters.

Is it SnK? Or Owari no Seraph? Both. Really.

MrWolfix MrWolfix says...

SnK and OnS have both similar theme and MC. Yuu and Eren are trying to annihilate vampires/titans, who took their family. Both are training in the military and become soldiers, have their teams and faith in the rest of humanity atc. atc. Big monsters, badasses aand ... cool intro on both sides, one does not simply skip these intros. 

PandaBear87 PandaBear87 says...

Both are set in a corrupt, post-apocalyptic world where the humans are treated like livestock (in SotE, they are even refered to as such).  They both center around a main character who was unwillingly given super-human powers that he has to learn to control in order to defeat the enemy.    

kotaku01 kotaku01 says...

In both animes, the main protagonist's family dies because of a supernatural creature: titans in Shingeki no Kyojin's case or vampires in Owar no Seraph's case. Then he joins the military service in order to get revenge for their family...

DevillAngel DevillAngel says...

Both main characters are driven by their desire for revenge on the beings that killed thier families. Both animes are set up in a similar world in which humanity has been nearly wiped out and they lived in fortified cities for protection.They also begin in similar manner; the main characters family is killed and then we fast forward to years later when they are trying to get revenge by become members of an organizations special unit that is catered to killing the enemy.

Shizuka97 Shizuka97 says...

From the get go these animes are so similar. A dying humanity either due to vampires/titans where you have this survivor that's lost all of their family and they won't give up anything to fight back and get their revenge. Both are horror and action jam packed.

Theotakusyko Theotakusyko says...

I have watched 12 episodes of Seraph of the end so i have finished Vampire Reign and now onto Battle in Nagoya.

These are pretty similar Seraph of the end has Vampire's where as Attack on titan it has Titan's Both are gory but AOT is really gory Vampires suck human blood as their livestock where as titans they go and destroy and eat people.

I know this isnt the best of reviews but this is what i could think of.

fantasystic fantasystic says...

Both are action packed with an interesting plot line. The character design and animation is beautiful in either anime. Two of my favorites

ccallstar111 ccallstar111 says...

Both have a very similar theme. Both shows feature a human society that is at the brink of extinction due to some human-eating supernatural figure. The main characters are hell bent of getting their revenge and killing every last creature they see. The main characters rely on friends to continue on. Both shows are gory and dark.

SPOILERS AHEAD!!!!!!!!

Both characters are orphans (or close to it). They are also the result of human experimentation. Neither main character is fully human.

NegativeSal NegativeSal says...

It's pretty much the same concept besides the whole cannibalism part. They're both intense and has a great feel toward it. Sadly, they both also have such heavy cliff hangers.

exZachly exZachly says...

Attack On Titan and Seraph Of The End both share some parallels, a story about humanity's survival; in both worlds, humanity is at the brink of extinction and is endangered by another species (titans/vampires). The protagonist in both is a young boy who joins a squad to fight that species and to take revenge for losing a family member. In both anime, the atmosphere is a dark and serious one, also the animation style is quite similar.

lolthistu lolthistu says...

The plots of Attack on Titan and Seraph of the End are extremely similar, main characters as well. Perfect for any shounen lover. Supple amount of action and a good plot.

Taek Taek says...

Both shows are set in a dystopian world with an ancient threat lurking at the fringes of mankind, and both shows have technology that has progressed in such a way to deal with this threat, mecha in Sidonia, and the three-dimensional manouver device in AoT.

AoT seems to have a much stronger horror theme than Sidonia so far, but I believe anyone who has watched one, will get some enjoyment from the other.

HasseRovdjur HasseRovdjur says...

Both series are rather dystopic, telling the tale of the remnants of humanity living in confined spaces, ever on the lookout for the non-human threat that reduced it to such a state.

And of course, the threat that has not been sighted for so long finally returns, at it is now to take up arms against it and defend the last outpost of the humans in a desperate struggle!

While Sidonia is a futuristic mecha show, and AoT takes place in some fantasy land with rather advanced contraptions, they both have a very similar feel to them due to the plot and focus on military characters. They are also rather gritty and full of action, so if you want something similar, do check the other one out.

murcam murcam says...

Sindonia No Kishi is basically Attack on Space. Giant beings of unknown origin and intelligence have wiped out most humanity creating need for them to adapt. Although so far I think that Sidonia is better and the Gauna are significantly creepier and more threatening. If you like one you'll probably like the other... unless you aren't into mechs.

Yol Yol says...

They've both got the "unnatural force threatening mankind" theme going. They both have intense battle scenes, although one may not be used to the animation in SnK. They share the main protagonist being sort of an underdog, yet possesing some quality that brings him to fame. All in all, if you like one, you'll probably like the other. 

-Happy Watching

sothis sothis says...

It's crazy to me that more people haven't recommended this pair. Saying SNK and Titan are similar is the understatement of the year - a straggling subsection of humanity tries to defend itself against a giant, badass enemy that indiscriminately annihilates them, with plenty of horror, gore, and tense moments. The setting (fantasy vs futuristic) and animation (awesome vs kind of bad CG) are the only two things that set these apart. 

There is zero reason you wouldn't like one if you liked the other.

ZetsubouKaiji ZetsubouKaiji says...

Humanity has been pushed to the brink of destruction by overwhelming forces they don't understand. Forced to retreat into tiny refuges with limited suppies humanity must struggle to survive their new situation. However, these refuges only provide temporary safety as it isn't long before the threats attack these last bastions of humanity. Will humanity be able to overcome these threats or are they doomed to a painful slow extinction? 

Sindonia no Kishi and Attack on Titan have almost the same plot outline. The difference comes in the setting with Attack on Titan taking a medieval setting with a touch of steampunk and Sidonia being a science fiction series. Each show has it's own set of technology with Sidonia including mechs and space combat. 

Attack on Titan is hands down the better of these two shows. It has better characters, better pacing and a more interesting story. Knights of Sidonia stumbles on just about all these fronts, but if you like stories that push the characters to the brink of despair then try either of these titles.

Brad Brad says...

A mysterious and overwhelmingly powerful enemy pushes mankind to the brink of extinction, forcing them to retreat into small, enclosed communities in order to survive. But the status quo doesn't last for long, and humanity is backed into a corner and forced to retaliate to protect their future. 

The plot in each is pretty much as close asd two shows can get, the only major difference being AoT's medieval setting when compared to Sidonia's sci-fi space setting. 

AoT is the better of the two shows by a long shot, but they are so similar that fans of one should definitely check the other out. 

ZEROibis ZEROibis says...

Bolth shows are about survivors of humanity fighting against an ememy that has nearly destroyed them. Main character in bolth is different from everyone else and is like a specal weapon to defeat the enemy. In bolth cases the goverment is covering up much of the history of humanity and of the true origins of their civilization. Lastly bolth have great epic battles and exciting action.

snivets snivets says...

Sidonia no Kishi and Attack on Titan both had me on the edge of my seat, trying to figure out if the characters will survive or not. If you like a show where the human race is threatened with extinction by big, bad non-human creatures, then both of these will be right up your alley. Liked one? Be sure to check out the other!

Swerto Swerto says...

Both revolve around some overpowered main character being the only one who can stop this ancient supernatural threat that has plagued humanity for longer than recorded history. Both are superviolent and have many main characters die throughout them. Both have great dubs, great action, and a dark setting. Knights of Sidonia takes place in space in a very battlestar galactica fashion.

Attack on Titan takes place in a fantasy kingdom.  

PrincessPlum PrincessPlum says...

Soldiers training together using a special tool or suit, preparing to find an enemy they've never faced or haven't faced in some time. Similar vibe in each, one in a less advanced Earth, one in the future in space.

redtear17 redtear17 says...

Great survival animes, Fighting giant creatures (titans in Attack on Titan,Gauna in Knights of Sindonia) with advanced weapons (3D gear in AoT and mecha in KoS)

Red4life Red4life says...

The premise is very similar for both shows. Humanity on the brink of extinction with a kid doing the whole "chosen one thing". Attack on Titan, however, is a bit lighter in story and mood than Sidonia no Kishi which I find darker. So far I have to say I prefer the latter's story a bit more (maybe I'm more into mechas). However, being Sidonia no Kishi a CG anime, I have to say that it's not my favourite style. It's not bad...but it's not the same thing as hand drawn anime. Still, highly recommend both shows (and manga)!

chillst1 chillst1 says...

They basically have the same premise except in one mobile suits are used and in the other assisted grappeling devices are used.

Saincev Saincev says...

Humanity is brought to the brink of extinction by another "creature" who has a specifc weak point. Humanity must come up with a creative way to defeat said creatures in order to survive. Pretty much the plot of AoT and KoS in a nutshell. The MC in both stories have something special about them that allows them to combat the threat. Comrades die, yet there is no time to Mourn and the fight must go on.

So where's the difference? Where AoT has Harpoon Jetpacks and Blades, KoS uses Mechs with Particle Beams and Spears. AoT takes place on Earth and is Primarily using technology from Middle Ages. KoS takes place in the far future aboard a Giant Generation Ship, Sidona. Titans use brute strength to kill. Gaunas (from KoS) have more "sophisticated" methods.

Overall, if you enjoyed the plot of AoT and the feel of the envrionment, KoS is a great subsitute.

jiayilovescake jiayilovescake says...

Humanity is cornered by threatening creatures that just so happen to like attacking humans. Humans must gather and create weapons and go out in groups to kill said creatures. 

KoS is futuristic with Mechs powered by Hyggs Particles, while AoT has a more medieval setting with 3DMG. The protagonists differ a lot in terms of personality, but they both become leading forces on the battlefield. 

Gabbygabby21 Gabbygabby21 says...

Knights of Sidonia is mostly the same execpt they are fighting in space. They both have a future where the entire world lives in one place because of an "alien" creature. 

mindlord0013 mindlord0013 says...

Knights of Sidonia and Attack on Titan have a number of similarities. The main difference between the two is the setting. In both series, humanity has been pushed back by a mysterious, bloodthirsty race that sometimes take a humanoid form in shape, if not intelligence. Humanity has to live in a sanctuary, and sometimes drastic measures have to be taken to save the greater number of lives at the cost of a few.The combat is very similar in both shows, fast paced and visually stunning. Neither show glosses over the fact that casulaties are inevitable in these situations, and sometimes characters are killed because of stupid little mistakes - something that is inevitbale in wars against bloodthirsty killing machines. Knights of Sidonia has less gore than Attack on Titan, and appears to be more restrained with its use of graphic violence for shock value - something I feel Attack on Titan has no qualms about. The monsters in each series are equally grotesque in their own rights, though Attack on Titan takes the prize for having a more scary monster (though Knights of Sidonia's monsters are equally as deadly, if not more so.)The main difference between the two shows are the settings and themes. Knights of Sidonia is a sci-fi show, set on a colony ship, with characters piloting mechs to fight an alien species known as gauran (a highly intelligent, giant, shape-shifting species). Attack on Titan is a fantasy show, with the characters using contraptions that basically make them spider-man with swords, fighting against the titular titans - giant humanoid creatures that revel in eating humans.Both shows tend to have themes exploring the idea of a blurred line between humanity and monters, but go about it in different ways. Attack on Titan tends to revolve around greed, gluttony and selfishness vs. the want to protect others, kinship, and selflessness. Knights of Sidonia focuses on the literal, genetic differences between humans and "monsters", as well as the personalities and psychology of particular characters. It also delves into the issue of immortality and extreme longevity, and the philosophical issues that that brings when there are people in a position of power that are also extremely long-lived.

hamletsmage hamletsmage says...

Humanity lives in a bubble, terrified of creatures beyond human understanding. And yet, they send the young and  virile members of society out into the void to gather information. That's the main conflict of both anime. And while one is set in space and the other is set in pseudo-Europe, they share a lot in common. 

murder0 murder0 says...

Similar to attack on titan where you follow one character that is for some strange reason way more special than everyone else and throughout the series seems to grow in strength. (That’s the basic explanation on why you'd like it)... They both have a really good story line and an excellent character development only problem is the style of the animation might throw u off.

Black Bullet

Black Bullet

In the year 2021, mankind was defeated by Gastrea, a parasitical virus, and was forced to live within a wall made of Baranuim monoliths, a metal that is able to subdue Gastrea. Soon, the "Cursed Children" were discovered: children born infected with the Gastrea virus who possess superhuman abilities. Due to the Gastrea virus' intervention, the Cursed Children could only be female. Civil Securities are formed to specialize fighting against Gastrea, operating with the pair of an Initiator, who are cursed children, and a Promoter, serving to lead the cursed children. Ten years after the war, Rentaro Satomi, a high school student and Civil Security member, and his Initator Enju Aihara, receive a secret mission to prevent Tokyo's destruction.

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

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".

YuiYui YuiYui 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. 

Lobokendo Lobokendo says...

He will build us a wall.  And not just any wall.  This wall will protect us from many things.  Titans, Gastrea and even other races of people.  Vote for Trump!  JK But yeah... it does have a bit in common so yup probably less story than AoT but not the worst thing ever.

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.

Both of these shows are about isolated civilizations that are fighting against monsters. That is the biggest simalarity between these two shows. Other than that they are not the same. Both of them are great though, and I love both!

snivets snivets says...

Although they are set in completely different time periods, Deadman Wonderland and Shingeki no Kyoujin both take place in violent worlds where people live on edge, in constant fear. Both feature a protagonists who must make life-or-death choices, and both point out corruption and decadence of the ruling class. If you like a tense story with moments of uneasy peace, these two shows will entertain you.

newvegasseptim newvegasseptim says...

Agreed, I was going to reccomend this! Deadman Wonderland has very violent action and storyline, and very heart shattering just as attack on titan does. Don't let that make you believe they aren't good anime, because the violent touch is what adds up to the epicness of it all!Both a 9.5/10 in my book! 

animegirlshelby animegirlshelby says...

Both of these include the main character being a boy who has been thrown into a world of chaos and death for causes unknown. If you like the way one throws you into a world of emotional uncertainty and you never know what to expect (although in Attack on Titan its a little more unexpected) then you will certainly enjoy the other.

jotix jotix says...

While I can't list all my reason because it would contain spoilers, these shows are very much alike in genre and the repective tags you would assign to them. They both have a blood and gore factor that is unique unto itself. Attack on Titan and Deadman Wonderland have different settings and circumstances that bring plot points into place but both share traumatizing experiences for the main character that, once past those events, hardens and strengthens the protagonist.

theSentinel theSentinel says...

the things that make both Attack on Titan and Deadman Wonderland awesome are:horrific truths,massive and deep plotlines,perfectly balanced between realistic and make believe, lovable chartacters, twisted and larger than life bad guys.there is so much to love in both of these animes

Both series have a similer feel (despirate and scary) where the main character has no choice where they are and must fight to stay alive. Both shows have their main character determined to get out and are supported by their allies, all trying to get out alive, weather it be Deadman Wonderland or the Walled Civilization.

angelyrical angelyrical says...

The atmosphere of the two animes are rather similar and they both portray a rather cynical view on human nature. Both take place in a dystopian setting where the terror is real and the characters have to fight for their lives, fight for what they belive in. Both are heart-rendingly realistic and are truly awesome to watch.

Gavia Gavia says...

Both are dark action series with strong themes of futility and cynisism. In both shows the main characters are fighting to live free in the world they inhabit, when they aren't fighting simply to stay alive.

Jdogtoocool Jdogtoocool says...

I agree with the above comments on the comparisson of Attack on Titan and Deadman Wonderland. I would say the bigger difference in both anime is the pace they present their epeisodes. If you like one I'm sure you'll love the other.

The level of action is more or less the same, and the history make us watch the main character growth.

Attack on Titan revolves around monsters while Deadman Wonderland revolves around the humans that are monsters. They have a dark yet interesting way of telling and showing things and both a must watch.

If you liked Berserk you might like Attack on Titan.  Both anime are in fantasy settings featuring swords and battles.  Both are dramatic with plenty of blood and guts.  Both are action shows with dark themes.  

VivisQueen VivisQueen says...

In both Berserk and Shingeki no Kyojin, we have brutal fantasy worlds where humans are at the mercy of terrifying creatures. And the hero is a jaded kind of soul who has suffered a lot but possesses a grim determination. The thing about these shows is, while violent, their worlds are also stunningly developed. And the conflicts are just intense. Not to mention the characters are superlative, drawing you in with their personal struggles and and the nuances in their personalities. As a result, getting absorbed in their respective plots is an exhilerating experience. It is not possible to say which is a better series, just that if you love one, you will be an instant fan of the other.

Brad Brad says...

Both these series feature a well developed, interesting fantasy setting filled with great characters who all have their own personal and collective struggles. Both series also involve mankind fighting to survive against terrifying enemies. Violence is a strong theme in both, with Shingeki no Kyojin perhaps being more flashy than Berserk, but both can be brutal when required. The intensity that both series exude is one of their best features, and one that makes episodes thrilling to watch. Fans of one should give the other a try, it's unlikely you will be disappointed.

HasseRovdjur HasseRovdjur says...

Both series are grim and gritty anime that take place in dark fantasy worlds where human lives are easily ended. There's a lot of focus on combat yet also on character development, but most importantly, there is a rather oppresive and dark mood throughout both that makes me do this rec.

Naga Naga says...

Set in dark, gritty medieval time, both of this series feature some well executed survival against their ferocious enemies. With the major spotlight in combat, both shows deliver some amazing action scenes and both tend to be violent along the way. There’s also a very dark mood that complements both shows greatly, and because of that, I’d say that you probably won’t find anything that matches more like these two do.

If you’re a fan of one, do check the other. You won’t be disappointed. 

Disbemyanon Disbemyanon says...

In both anime's beginings the protagonist may feel like a determined person but loses his will after an event in their lifes.As well,both animes are centred on people's trust and their lose of sanity.

Damashion Damashion says...

Both have a similar level of brutality, and are on a similar level of awesomeness. But definately check out the new Berserk Golden Age Arc Movies, they are basically the Berserk series redone, but a bit closer to the manga interpretation, and with beautiful animation. Shingeki No Kyojin is basically the pinnacle of quality for animation and brutality, but for an older series, Berserk is definately a good watch!

Scythwolf Scythwolf says...

Sure thing, can tell anyone who loved this to watch the other thing. Reasons: Medieval setting, both are dark, strange, abnormal and powerful enemies everywhere. Only Berserk is even darker thanks to some quite realistic aspects like rape, hatred and so on.

Synthwaver Synthwaver says...

Dark fantasy worlds on the verge of total collapse with hell just around the corner, both very similar in tone.

GreenJelly50 GreenJelly50 says...

The two protagonists operate in a difficult and violent world. Both anime focuses on the psychological aspect of the characters and will hold you captivated.

largox largox says...

Both great bloody anime, with extreme violence and stuning story twist. I think that the most important part in both AOT and Berserk is the story line wich is impecable. I also suggest to watch the Berserk Movies and the 90´anime adaptation

Argentum Argentum says...

Both have a progressive, well-crafted history. Main characters in constant transformation. About living within a system that you doesn't even imagine what is going on. Friends can become enemies and enemies can be helpers. About mysteries, swords, big guys and blood ... a lot of blood! Not for kids!

BLACKMAMBA84 BLACKMAMBA84 says...

The specific and peculiare environment and charaters of both animes are stunning. 

Certainly one of the kind to watch! 

dragonballk dragonballk says...

 Both Anime tell a story of facing insurmountable odds, terrible loss (although in the early parts of Berserk are, the protagonists are generally victorious, and the tragedy doesn't happen until the very end). 

 Both Anime feature horrific, larger then life, evil monsters, all though again, they don't really feature prominently until the end of the anime in Berserk. 

 Both Anime feature a large build up to the ultimate betrayal.

 Both Anime subtly touch on social issues such as sexuality.

LilCoupon LilCoupon says...

Their both anime's that don't hold back when it comes to harsh realities and the fact that happy endings aren't all too realistic. They both have main characters that accept the harsh realities and try to grow and improve from them.

Parasyte -the maxim-

In secret, alien parasites drift downwards toward Earth. Their directive: to take control of a human body and thrive in secret. When a parasite attempts to take over Shinji, an ordinary high school student, he stops it in his arm to save his mind. With the strange power of amorphous muscle, the curious parasite strikes an uneasy truce with Shinji: it will keep him alive and strong so that it may continue living, and will help protect him from the other parasites that might not take kindly to Shinji's mind still actively working. Can Shinji gain the courage to face the parasites and protect humanity? And would it even make a difference if he did?

These are both popular series with a dark tone, a troubled teenaged protagonist dealing with the loss of his mother, and monsters that consume humans but might be more complicated than it first seems. Lots of violence and elements of horror in both of these, but also tons of action. I think it's pretty likely there's already a lot of crossover between fans of both shows, so if you like one, you should definitely check out the other.

In the early 2050s, unknown life forms called “Oracle cells” begin their uncontrolled consumption of all life on Earth. Their ravenous appetite and remarkable adaptability earn them first dread, then awe, and finally the name “aragami”.
