Both feature giant CGI bugs and quite some gore, whilst cagaster has a more developed story both do feature similar themes of survival and dealing with the giant insects.

Similar idea... a virus that turns people into monsterous insect like creatures. Black Bullet has MUCH better animation. I also like the characters better. However, I give Cagaster of an Insect Cage credit for not having a bunch of Lolis flock to the main character.
