If you're looking for anime similar to Tokyo Ghoul, you might like these titles.
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?
Both animes have darker themes, struggle with humanity, and gore. Each main character is half-human, and half-other... and this half 'other' is the source of their troubles.
Both anime feature a normal, nerdy kid who is unwittigly dragged into a secret world full of cannibals, and who must make peace with his monsterous new abilites too avoid becoming a monster,while protecting those he cares about from those who would kill and eat them. Parasyte has more dark humor, and Tokyo Ghoul more tragedy/drama.
Because both animes tell a history of a normal student that one day become in a "monster". That's my opinion!
Both are about a boy that in an unexpected way becomes something that will make them fight against their inner demons. They're trying to keep their human side, and are not totally capable to accept what they've become.
Both shows follows their story while they're unveiling a part of the world they never thought existed. Also experiencing that reality is horrible, they go through a long journey to find out where they belong.
If you haven't watched any of these, I seriously recommend both. The character development is great. The stories are gold. They are both amazing.
If you liked Toukyou Kushuu then you would definitely love Kiseijuu: Sei No Kakuritsu!! Kiseijuu is the best anime released after Tokyo Ghoul.Kiseijuu is very similar to tokyo ghoul in many ways!like how Kaneki becomes a ghoul-human in the first/second ep,the mc of kiseijuu also becomes a kiseijuu-human and to be honest,i think kiseijuu is better than tokyo ghoul(just a lil bit)and both the animes have great opening and ending themes,and also great story but..in art,kiseijuu is not that all good but if put the art aside kiseijuu is awesome!!
similar in fighting two different species each other , main character is different from both species but still got his own mind.
In both shows the main character becomes one of the "them." In Kaneki's case a ghoul, in Shinichi's a parasite. at the start both cataracts begin as as weak but end up bad ass after wards. Both struggle to keep their sanity as the new power devours them. Both have a girl that they strongly care about and do everything to protect. Both have evil inside of them (Migi=Riza). Both are supernatural, where the main character has to fight to top enemy. If you like one, you will mos. Liklet like other.
High scholl life with terror and beautiful girls and really wonderfull story hope you enjoy. please notify if there is any other anime with the some topic.
The main characters progression is very similar, they batte similar issues. These animes are actually really similar, but have their own touch to it too. Both are a bit gorey in my opinion, and violent.
Both characters get a strange powers that others already have but the main characters have a unique perspective and both stuggle with doubting their humanity.
Both of the animes contain gore and creatures of another world pretending to be humans in our world in order to survive. In addition, both of the creatures are creating problems in the human world.
Both shows are grotesque and suspenseful, with a protagonist who one day becomes sub-human due to a disturbing change to their body.
Both animes have common themes and many paralells. if you enjoyed one of these animes, you will definately enjoy the other .
Both have the same dark atmosphere... the protagonis is inserted in a world of "monsters" while trying to maintain their normal live, struggling with fiends and family and running from the government. Definitely good animes, give it a try if you did not watch it already.
Both are thematically and stylistically dark looks at what happens when sentient species collide. Both protaganists are kinds of mediating figures between the two worlds. Of the two, Parasyte is better, but if you liked one the other is sure to please.
Both animes share a common plot of a species that are at first sight a danger to humanity, but the mixed nature of the main character will show that they might not be so different to humans. All these combined, with a good story, action and a little bit of romance assures you to be one a good recommendation for the other.
- Beatifully done
- Awesome character development
- Large variety of crazy personalities
- Unique Storylines
Both Tokyo Ghoul and Parasyte are very well done. While their storylines are completly different, these two tender nuggets are for the same crowd.
Mosters who look like humans yet eat humans. Tokyo Ghoul is pro-moster while parasyte is pro-human. Gore.
Both are darker anime, but have a lot of action and excellent character development. They also are different enough that it doesn't get repetitive or boring.
Both great shows. Similar in the sort of genre and themes. If you like one, then you will absolutely like the other.
Both anime share the same themes, both featuring human eating 'monsters' who view humans as inferior and both have a half human as a protaganist. Either way if you liked one there is a high chance you'll like the other.
They are similar because the main character changes their character because of power and some traumatizing expirencesYADAYADA etc.
I REALLY DONT WANT TO EXPLAIN IF YOU HAVE SEEN ONE YOU ARE GOING TO LOVE THE OTHER!!
both the main characters have to deal with becoming part of life or death situation where they must learn to adapt quickly or die
in both anime the main character has to deal whit monster "inside" just watch these animes :D
This show is AMAZING! the story is awesome & it's similar to Parasyte because both characters both have these types of powers & both feel like an outsider. I do like Tokyo Ghoul better then Parasyte but both of them are REALLY good animes. Tokyo Ghoul is AMAZING though.
Both anime have to kinds Humans and Ghouls/Parasyte. Both have protaganists that are hybrid of the 2 kinds. Both are mature yet fun anime
Both deal with the psychological struggles reguarding humanity's place on earth. With some mystery, horror, and a similar protagonist, these two anime will keep you pondering.
Both of these anime have a nice dark zombie-ish theme to them. Great anime with a sort of thriller feel.
It's full of action, blood and gore scenes XD
Similiaraly amazing, yet different. Both have horror, romance, and include a charater that grows and changes for better or worse. Excellent
Both live normal lives which flip around when they get a supernatural ability. Both have plenty of action and suspense if you liked one you would surely like the other
Both male protagonist are very similar, seemingly quiet and reserved people. They both gain a foreign power internally (TG: a ghoul organ transplant and PA: a parasyte as his right hand) and try to use it to protect people they love. The world in which each anime portrays is twisted and dangerous. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish who is the bad party: humans or the other foreign being (ghouls or parasytes). There is a lot of blood and deaths along the way, with some scenes being very emotional. The fight scenes and animations in each anime is gorgeous (yes even if it's blood-filled). Just beautiful watching the anime and listening to the beautiful soundtrack.
ist the same point
a normal guy become a cannibal
ist soooooooooooo gooooooooddddddddddddd i lovee tokyo ghoul
Wow, these two are pretty much the same now that I take a step back. Except there's two main characters in Parasyte.
Both are dark, supernatural, full of action, great story and soundtracks.Both MC's have to see the new world and adjust there, facing their inner demons and doing what they never thought they could do.Really good character development as well as animation and art.
Both of the anime are kinda gore-like, have similar drawing style. The MC is almost a copy in both of them. They are at the beggining typical scared cat and tend to be more manly after few episodes. In addition, they both have super-powers, isolate themselves from other people because of the condition they are presented.
Both have a MC who get thrown into a battle they don't want
Both strive to save their loved onesBoth have a MC who adjusts and changes himself as series progresses
Parasite has the MC's hand turn alien while in Tokyo Ghoul The whole body.
They both are gory and the story is the same, a boy struggling with a unquestionable power or being that they dont want but has to deal with it, even if it costs them their lives.
I would say that tis reccomendation makes complete sense. Both have the plots of dealing with internal demons, both literally and metophorically. They both have extremely intense fighting scenes as well as deep emotional and torturous moments. Best of all, if you like the blood and gore from one, be prepared to see some more.
Gorey with monsters and crazy plots between monsters and humans and monsters vs. monsters. Takes a look at the negatives and positives of both humans and monsters and gives you perspectives of both sides. Both have crazy villains and awesome main characters that grow and change as the series progresses.
They have similar stories. In Parasyte -the maxim, Shinichi turned into the first human to not be controlled by Parasites. While, in Tokyo Ghoul, Ken Kaneki turned into the first one-eyed ghoul and was different from the rest of the ghouls. Both protagonists try to adjust their life when they gained their powers. In the middle of the series, they stuggle to become like themselves, as a "human." Kaneki couldn't adjust his life of eating food to eating humans, but at the end, he accepted his fate. Shinichi changed a lot throughout the series and became emotionless when someone dies or any other sad event, and he's described by his friends that he's not human.
Frankly, if you want an explination, read someone else's recommendation. They are both seriously good anime. Trust me and the however many others who are telling you that.
They're the same in a lot of ways 1 being both mc's are half breeds of the main antagonists groups, and 2. they both deal with trying to live a life as a half breed and the antagonists both dine on humans
Both are dealing with a species higher in the foodchain than humans, they're both dark in theme and although there is a lot of graphic display of violence, gore isn't the main goal. The main character can relate to the human and the other species and their character develops due to traumatic experiences.
Both have themes of being given a power (I use that very loosely) that comes with unwanted side effects. Tokyo Ghoul is a little bit more gruesome/sad but overall they're both pretty depressing and gory. I'd say both explore the psychological aspects of their powers pretty thoroughly, and both depict the toll the power takes on the lead characters in different directions, but both directions are interesting.
They are both about people trying to hold onto humanity. They are both a little dark and filled with excitment.
Both have similar themes of the main character struggling to come to terms with a change in who they are--they depart from being humans and cross over to a world of being in-between or both the human and parasite/ghoul worlds. Effectively they have human-becoming-non-human inner conflicts and additional conflicts and struggles in old and new relationships.Parasyte speaks to a larger philosphical themes.. it explores ethics and anthropocentrism, while Tokyo Ghoul speaks more about suffering, growth, and reconciliation with a new role and circumstance.
Both anime have dark themes and gore.
The animation in each generally suites the respective anime. TG is the more fantastical of the two and employs a fluid, color-saturated aesthetic that meets with high emotional intensity. Parasyte has hard lines and undersaturated coloring to match its themes of detatchment and logic that come from the parasytes' approaches to survival.
I've heard the manga of each much better communicates the intricacies of each protagonist's inner diaglogue and subsequent conflicts, so I recommend enjoying both anime and manga media for these stories.
In both, some people are affected from a ''desease'' that makes you like a monster but the main character is half monster half human.
They both are equal as good, but if you like the whole none humans eating humans theme; you may like Parasyte.
Tokyo Ghouls also shares Tokyo Ghouls goodness in the fact that they both have none human traits that take over the human body.
you can't go wrong with one if you like the other
I just want to agree on this recommendation to help out. Now I'm just filling up hundred characters.
They're both pretty good animes. Both protagonists have strange adaptions which make them different and powerful in return. Plus theres violence.
Both of them are horror/sci-fi involving non-human creatures. Main character is a normal human who gets involved in the other world.
There is some kind of flare that link the two shows together.both the protaganists needs to overcome a certain task.they both have gore, and a sensse of mistery.Parasyte might have a liiitle more to it. than Tokyo Ghoul. But they are both great shows.
They both have many similarities. You can have 'taste' of cannibalism , alien species and humans in both the Anime. The animation quality, especially the adrenaline scenes are well executed.
Parasyte-the maxim gives warning/message about hazardous human activities.
I love it because it's one of animes that's not always happy and there's a little bit of reality in it. Also the characters are awesome (especially touka)!!!!
Blood, gore and monsters that look like humans. Do I have to say more?
Also, the main character goes through some serious changing and goes from a total nerd to a total badass.
I'ts a very nice anime with action and it leaves you on the edge of you're sit.
It follows a highschool student who was standing in his bad and a parasyte enterd his room and got in to his arm,but he grabed his head phones and rapt them around his arm and stoped the parasyte to enter his brain,his father and mother entered his room because they heard him yeling soo they toth that hi was attackt by some one , but when they enterd the room hi was on yhe floor with the head pohones on his arm.
The next day , on his way to school his arm started shifting and transforming and a face like thing poped out of his arm and started talking to him his name was migi.
that some gud shit
the thing said i need more then 100 characters so dont pay atention to this well you are reading this but you can stop rearding now and only worry about the top part
IDK honestly, but if you like one, then you will probably like the other. Kinda like with P!ATD, FoB, and MCR(If you know what those things are).
As i was watching the other i notice they were kinda similar. Both are very amazing & unique difinitetly 2 of my most favorite animes i love it sm!!
They both have heavy psychological themes centered around what it means to be human, not to mention lots of fighting an people getting eaten.
Follows a similar theme. Main character is half human while the other half being something that eats humans. Both end up fighting the predators, however reluctantly.
both have a dark errie sense to it, with an evolving story that keeps you coming back for more
Both about an despised 'race', however said race is far more capable than the 'superiors'. Both require coexistence with human or risk extinction, this proves quite ironic as the races feast on humans.
How would you react if you woke up with a superpower and then found yourself in a middle of a war between humans and non-humans? Which side would you take and what would be your actions? Good vs. bad, dark vs. light, humans vs. non-humans; watch both anime and choose your side.
They both show story events of both sides. From the main character of Parasyte loses what he was. A human and Kaneki from Tokyo Ghoul is the same to. Their both are likeable. And very Depressing type ways. That are similar. So i both are good. No matter what people think
It's about people who got unwanted super powers and fight against other of his new kind to protect humanity... There both excelent main charactrers... By watching it, you really care about they doings and feel they pain...
Cause they are both the best. Or maybe cause I live under a rock and I dont know th real world. In any case, it doesn't really matter to me, cause they both are in my top five animes.
Both series deal with average guys being confronted with something unknown that's gonna change their life forever. Both series feature creepy moments, great action scenes, and gruesome deaths on top of great characters and voice acting.
Both have the same feel, the similar psycholofical intensity. Both are gross at first look, but after the first few ep, you are hooked
The first thing came in my mind while I was watching was it was similar to Tokyo Ghoul, both got infected and didn;t want to do the killing and ended up doing later lol
parasyte and Tokyo ghoul are similar. The MC got taken over by an anomaly that greatly effected their lives
Parasyte-the Maxim or Tokyo ghoul
One made by MADHOUSE and other Studio PIERROT;
In both anime , The MC is a high schooler. They share lots of similarities. Both have great powers too but with the cost of their (life not being same again) They lost their loved ones and eventually with a mix of drama and romance- a new beginning of life..
The Tokyo ghoul WINS for better anime because it has more episodes with seasons compared to single season for parasyte-the maxim. The plot for Tokyo ghoul starts with life of kaneki Ken (Tokyo ghoul& Tokyo ghoul√A).In Tokyo ghoul:re, The vibe changes with new direction,new art style,new characters etc . Even with new art direction season 3 and 4 was amazing
Both anime was animated nicely and even has a Fantastic intro. In my word "ThAT SOMe WeEb SHit BoI"
I don't know HAHAHAH I just find this anime alike because of the character development and these two anime has a good opening just try it and you will like it
They both revolve around a MC who gets caught up in death, killing, and other dark adventures.
These two shows are very similar in terms of storyline and characters. They both follow the same sort of idea of an individual revising a power they neither want nor understand and being thrust into a world surrounded by murders. It's really interesting to follow the main characters, watching them overcome their moral compass in order to survive.
In a world where parasytes from unknown origins take over human bodys and feed on humans what will our main character do now that he has to cohabitate with one. What will he do now that he knows of the existence of man eating parasytes feeding of his fellow humans.
These two series are often compared to each other for a lot of the elments they share. Man-eating monsters blending into human society, a dark tone, and a huge central theme of the difference between man and monster. While Tokyo Ghoul is darker and arguably edgier, Parasyte is a lot more philosophical. But they're both good series in their own right, and if you liked one chances are you'll enjoy the other.
they deal with being thrust into a world of certain death where they had to live with something that thrives on slaughter and bloodshed one ghoul one parasyte forced
They both have the same tone, and the main characters in the same in that they both react realistically to their situations.
Both of the main characters have their live's changed due to unfortunate circumstances that deal with a race other than humans.
Both shows follow young male characters that have been altered to be able to consume humans and fight with altered meta-human abilities. Main characters struggle with the change in their humanity and go through physical and personality changes as a result. Both discuss the question if humans are the real monsters to be feared in the world.
Both Parasyte and Tokyo Ghoul are anime's with a lot of fighting and blood. Both are about a normal boy who suddenly gets new powers which makes them a target for villains.
Both Mc's are weak and pathetic(?) at the start but as something happens they start to become OP and yeah the storys also have other similarities..
They definately have a lot of similarities like the part how they are part of a creature but not fully and I ended liking both of them too.
If you do watch one of these I definately recommend the other. Besides being the same genre, they do have more similarities. One of these would be how Migi and the other parasites move and form an extention from the body could be comparable to Tokyo Ghoul's kagune. The character development between the two protagonasts could also be considered similar, as thet start off frightened of their newly aquired power, when after an intense scene they become a really badass intense mc.
i agree bc i do i agree bc i do i agree bc i do i agree bc i do i agree bc i do i agree bc i do i agree bc i do i agree bc i do i agree bc i do i agree bc i do i agree bc i do i agree bc i do i agree bc i do i agree bc i do i agree bc i do i agree bc i do i agree bc i do v
both are pretty violent and a dark with great story and fights, also there's a lot of caracter developement going on in both of them. the parasyte ending is really good in my opinion, but I have neither watched nor read tokyo ghoul completely so I dunno about that.
the settings of both of them are relatively similar but in parasyte humans mostly don't know about the, well, parasytes, except for the parasites themselves and few other individuals, while in tokyo ghoul ghouls are án everday- kinda topic. anyways, if you like a dynamic story, well- written characters, a good power system, cool fights, and a little romance, please go ahead both of these are amazing regarding those categories
Nice blood effects, really amazing fight scenes (with blood), some pretty good characters in both to obses over haha, death of mc's close one, both mc's change a lot, both mc's didn't want to be what they are right now at some point in their old life
Both are gore and about eating humans. Both have a predator-prey relationship. Both also have things to do with hidden identities.
Both contain some sort of psychopath.
Has the same supernatural aspect, has the concept of coming to terms with life during a tough time. Both storylines are very detailed and interesting. TW as it has gory themes and a tough psychological storyline.
In both shows, the main characters are thrown into a situation that they could have never imagined through sheer coinsidence. Wrong place wrong time kind of story. Both shows, have gruesome scenes and characters that go through similar character developement.
They are very similar. Out of all the anime i have been told are close to tokyo ghoul this is the best of all.
Main Character: males in their teens
Supernatural species: Yes
Human/alien one-of-a-kind half-breeds?: Yes
Human food or Human as food?: Yes
Confusion and "I want to eradicate the unknown species, but then I decided maybe not"?: Yes
"I did not choose this, fate chose me": Yes
Heart-warming ordinary to badass cold-hearted main characters?: Yes
Hair changing?: Hell Yeah.
same thing but parasyte feels more mature and thought out
Both shows involve a young male protagonist whose life is changed when he unintentionally becomes a hybrid of a human with another species (parasites and ghouls). Having to find balance between two species presents many challenges in both shows: trying to keep your loved ones safe, gaining new enemies, and maintaining a sense of identity. These two animes have similar themes, yet they are still strikingly unique.
Both have a lot of similarities, such as the quiet kid going through something life changing. Also both are graphic in nature and tend to have darker story lines.
Gore gore gore!i love both so much they are 2 of my fav animes because they really show like the blood and gore behind humanity
cool gore just make sure you watch tokyo ghoul in the right order and pay enough attention cause i didnt and i ended up rewatching it like 4 times. im horrible at these so if you want a helpful recommendation leave now im just filling in the 100 word minimum
Both are male main characters. Both have a human struggling because they are some sort of hybrid between human eating creatures that infect the world. Both include harm to other humans and the struggle between if they help or destroy their "own kind". They both have a group of people interested in them. I personally loved both of these, not just similarities but just in general. They both have solid plots and characters.
Both star a young male who is caught in an unfortunate situation that changes their life for worse (or better)
Both have great plots and characters and the potentials to make you cry buckets of tears . the music is awesome and the depth is amazing
Tokyo Ghoul and Parasyte -the maxim- both have elements of body horror and a same sort of feel to them
Gore shows, about super hybrid human hybrids and excellent story on top of it what else needs to be said.
These anime series are for people who love blood & gore along with traumatizing mature themes
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...
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.
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.
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
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.
Who dosent like a race that eats people? Violence, blood, and death are all things these two animes have in common. I loved both animes and so will you
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.
They both are dark and gritty animes that focus on the horrors of war and how it affects people. they both have characters that over the course of the show change in tremendous ways. They also have the main protagnist that is a hybrid of both sides and can understand howw both sides truly feel about one another.
They are both bloody, violent and have plenty of thrilling fights where you don't know who will die.
Humans are the prey to other species, and must face the struggles of being part of the food chain. Although Tokyo Ghoul has a more modern setting, there are definitely parallel themes.
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.
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).
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!
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
Theyboth have characters who want to rid the world of something. The two main protaganists are also one of "them"
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
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.
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.
It's awesome, they both have many similar qualities in the genre and it's just worth watching in general.
if you're lookin for ghore anime contains blood, blood, and blood, but still have a good story and plot
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.
literally all the death and sadness, but with well developed characters and very nicely animated. interesting plot gets you asking a lot of questions
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.
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.
I just want to agree on this recommendation to help out. Now I'm just filling up hundred characters.
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.
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.
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.
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<
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;)
they're both alike. Humans fearing something inhumane. The inhumane thing is eating humans, there's gore, great character development.
- mysterious man-eating creatures
- main character becomes what they hate
- the "man vs monster" conflict cliche
- great animation
- gore and tragedy :D
Two and a half years have passed since the end of eren’s old adventures. He has trained hard with Jiraiya-sama and has returned to Konoha to reunite with his friends; but Akatsuki, the organization that threatened Naruto years before, is on the move again and this time Naruto is not the only one in danger. With the powerful Akatsuki organization looming ahead of him, Sasuke still missing, and the struggle with the beast hidden inside him a continuous battle, will Naruto's hard-earned improvements be enough? Join Naruto, Sakura, new friends and the rest of the old gang as the action heats up with new techniques and stronger enemies.
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.
the both have humans in fear of the other species and then hybryds of that species trying to unite the two or helpin the exterminate the other
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.
Both are very gory and delve deeper into some dark themes.
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
People are being eaten and in both the main character is only half human plus there is a lot of death
It's an awesome anime to watch and very interesting as well! If you haven't seen it yet, give it a try!
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.
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.
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.
THEY ARE BOTH AMAZING!!!!!
so go and watch :) and ENJOY
Both animes involve another type of species, and humans fighting the species in order to survive.
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.
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.
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
both have themes of horror, extreme violence and action. the main characters become what they hate and end up being only half human
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 😅
The shows are both interesting..... by that i mean dont eat when ur watching them...................................................................................................................................................
Both have main characters that become monsters. If you like one toy should hopefully enjoy the other. They are also both full of action!
both feature a dark theme, sophisticated drama and plot that keeps you guessing and wanting more, gore af
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Both MC's lives suddenly changed cause of tragic incident.
Both include fight between human and another society.
Charecters are trying to find balance between humanity, friendship, love, hate, power and war.
Be prepered for blood, depresion, anxiety and death which are this anime full of.
Both these animes fall under the horror theme of humans being fed on as food. They're both gorey animes that present a good development of the main character throughout. Both the male protagonists have some sort of power, such as Eren turning into a half-titan, and Kaneki turning into a half-ghoul, that links them to the title.
both main characters were looked at as weak utill they turn in to a bad ass monster and go a bit nuts
Both anime are set in a world where humans have to survive being eaten by another creature. The main characters both go through much character development and character phases. The start of the anime both believing that the said creatures are evil, black and white. But as the series progresses, things are shown to be more complicated than that.
Well, the tragedy plot is similar between these animes and it is recommendable that you watch one another if you've enjoyed one of these.
*may have some spoils*
In both animes there are creatures that can sometimes not be distinguished from humans. The main characters both become what they hated and after a while they accept it and become the best in using it over time. Both main characters are also self-involvement, and both gradually revolutionized and made a great transformation within themselves, whose personality changed altogether. Both animes have masterpiece mangas and are one of the best.
They reason these anime's are similiar because both of the main charecters both become something they did not want to be,but then they found a way to make those flaws good.Another reason is that ghouls and titans both eat humans and they're both being hunted,both of the main charecters also very much struggle with their life.
They both dark and psychological anime with the great character development of the main character. A lot of hidden details and symbolisms that make history a lot more intresting.
both of them has their own story
i recommend it for whyose like to watching tragic story
Both of the mc are weak but both of them have the ambiton to save thier loved ones and both of them arer included in gore, action and shounen and very little romance.
Middle school student Ganta Igarashi witnessed the slaughter of his entire class by the mysterious 'Red Man', and as the only survivor, he was labeled a mass murderer and sentenced to death. Now an inmate at the privately-owned prison and ‘amusement park' known as Deadman Wonderland, Ganta must try to survive in a place where inmates are the main attraction in brutal gladiator-style games. At the same time, he must attempt to uncover the truth behind the ‘Red Man', his mysterious childhood friend Shiro, and why he was the only survivor that bloody day.
Tokyo Ghoul and Deadman Wonderland are similar because they feature a very normal main character whose fate is changed drastically by a bloody event. They both come upon deadly powers and make friends and enemies with similar powers while trying to fight their future. There is a lot of blood and gore in both animes and they have a similar hope and hopelessness vibe. Both protags can be tiresome but they must learn and grown if they hope to stay alive.
The 2 main characters both seem rather weak in the beginning, but gradually grow much stronger - in both cases with the help and training of friends, who have the same kind of supernatural power.
Also relevant: lots of blood and gore, lack of romance, suppressive authorities.
Both of these animes are very story rich, but furthermore they have grusome tales. If you watch one and like it you HAVE to watch the other.
Both series resolve around violence and blood, but surprisingly that's not the biggest similarity between these two series. That's because there's one more thing that they have in common, one other thing that bonds these two anime - they are both terrible anime adaptations of their respective source materials. So if you liked one of these two, then you might enjoy the other, also butchered, adaptation. My real recommendation here is that if you enjoyed at least one of these, then you should read its manga, because it's much better and after that possibly read the manga of the other one.
Shares a theme of dramatic-life altering circumstances to the main character where they are thrust into a world of carnage and violence beyond anything they could fathom, and must adapt or be consumed by it.

Tokyo Ghoul and Deadman Wonderland have the same kindof feeling to them. meaning that when you watch it, it will leave you disgusted but it will give you a craving for more and you just cant stop watching when you have started.
In Deadman Wonderland and Tokyo Ghoul, the main protagonist (Ganta Igarashi, Deadman Wonderland) (Kaneki Ken, Tokyo Ghoul), once a normal boy/human gets thrown into a bloody reality unseen by the rest of the world. They soon find out that by a major event(shown in the first episode) they were given inhuman powers that they must learn to control.
Both main leads receive major character developments; From a seemingly useless coward into a powerful superhuman. The progess of this development somewhat differs with Ganta and Kaneki, Kaneki with a more intense development then Ganta's.
After seeing the more gruesome side of their world, the protagonist is saved by a female. Although these girls may seem polar opposites with comparison to each other; Shiro, an almost child-like, bubbly, carefree girl. Touka, a down-to-earth teen with a seemingly harsh attitude. Still they share their similarities. Both seemingly stronger than the main character, will do anything for their best friend, and not much is known about them(If you only watch the anime).
In both anime, it makes you feel sorry for the main characters(in my case). It introduces many interesting characters and leave plot holes that are just skimmed over, it might have been beacuse of the number of episodes each series had gotten.
Both tell the story of a student, that one day their lifes change drastically. I think that is a good recommendation.
They both have a right amount of gore and blood and they're both psychological in a way. If you enjoyed Deadman Wonderland, I can tell you, you will love Tokyo Ghoul. Of course, vise versa. If you've seen Tokyo Ghoul, you will love Deadman Wonderland. They both have their whining little boys who turn into badass fight machines!
both animes focus on the despair of the main male character (with lots of blood and gore) - in tokyo ghoul kaneki's transformation from human to not-so-human, then in deadman wonderland how ganta's wrongfully accused of mass murder
they both focus on the characters despair of their situation and how they go from whimpy boys into overcoming their problems either through fighting or having broken mentally - so if you enjoy a bit of hopelessness, despair and fear and lots of gore in your anime then either of these are a must watch
There both dark psycho-dramas. Great plot lines, and tons of violence and gore. So if you plot twist, game changers, and action, then these series wont let you down.
In both shows, the main characters are innocent boys that gain inhuman powers due to unfortunate circumstances, and their lives become a tragedy. Both anime are bloody and have a lot of fighting.
Both are dark and mysterious animes where young boys must deal with unfortunate circumstances
Thou it has different settings it has little similarities and plus its just an awesome anime.
Gory, Supernatural, Thrilling, they will both keep you on the edge of your seat and wanting more
Not for the faint of heart, these two anime both have incredible intense stories.
With a generous amount of blood and screaming involved they do have a lot of aspects similar to each other although they do have different plots to reveal. The chances are high that you like the other of you liked one.
they both have this dark feeling behind them what i mean is that you dont know when someone is gonna go crazy or kill someone :D
Both are very gory, sad, dramatic and all characters have unique personalities as well as intricate relationships. Iv'e watched both and I reccomend this for anyone who likes action filled and suspensful as well as heart breaking animes. The plot twists are amzing!
Both anime focus on a main male character which gets special powers forced upon himself. To fit in with the society they must learn to use their powers.
Both characters are weak (and quite annoying imo) at the start but suddenly get a lot stronger.
Tokyo Ghoul focuses on Ghouls hiding from humans or they will be shot/captured. Deadman Wonderland focuses about people with blood power which are send to jail. So both are outcasts.
Deadman Wonderland however never got a sequal so it is only half the story. Tokyo Ghoul appears to get a third season so most likely it will get a satisfying ending.
These two anime give off a similar vibe and the branch of sin in deadman wonderland is similar to the ghouls kagune (at least I think that's what it was called, I apologize if that was wrong) They also both have quite a bit of death and violence so I mean there is that two.
Both anime have characters with very similar abilities. They both have simlar themes and undertones . If your looking for a darker anime with deeper meaning i would recommend these.
I really like tokyo ghoul and dead man wonderland because they both have blood and gore
You there, weak, squishy protagonist! This anime is going to make you stronger, faster, better. Stop whining about all the blood and take this new power. Oh, now you whine about having to fight for your life all the time? Fine, here's a cast of like-powered individuals. Go fight the oppressors, you crazy kid!
Both are tragically sad and yet filled with horror and make you wanna be best friends with the main character BECAUSE THEY DIDNT DESERVE WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM
Both main characters are students, just a average human student. Until, they become a victim of something monstrous, horrofying and bloody. Their world is twisted and turned up side down. They both struggle to accept that they are becoming the monster themself. But whem they accept it, they use it to save them self and those they care of.
The somewhat goreyness of each series is similar. In some way shiro reminds me of juuzou too, especially because of the red on white
Spoilers for Deadman
Deadman Wonderland is incompleted so it's best if you read the manga.
Both series are about someone whose life is drastically changed by someone they know. They both devlope blood-related powers and not only struggle with the people around them but have a hard time taking full control of their own powers.
it is similar in the way of how the main charachters are treated in tokyo ghoul the main character is pretty much looked at as a pest that needs to be exterminated and in deadman wonderland the man charcter is looked at as if he doesnt even matter.
Both animes are gory in their own right. They both have an interesting, but captivating storyline that can really impersify themselves.
i think if you enjoyed one you would enjoy the other. both are dark, both protags struggle with their situations and both start out as weak but with the help of others grow. they both have mysteries to be solved, that dont appear as mysteries at first but have satisfying conclusions
Both have graphic fight scenes, lots of gore and violence. Both narrate the persecution of the protagonists and major trials that each must go through, mentally and physically.
they are both spooky and deep. Really question why society is the way it is.
Both have lead teen boys, both of them seen as weak, or less than at the begining.
i very much enjoyed them both.
The first Ajin appeared 17 years ago and quickly became the most important discovery to mankind. While they appear to be human, Ajin are rare, immortal beings that are feared by the populace. Only 46 are known to exist in the world, and most try to hide their existence, for capture means being subjected to brutal experiments that never end. Kei Nagai is a boy who dreams of becoming a doctor to heal his sister one day, but after he dies - and revives - in a car accident, he learns the terrifying truth that he too is an Ajin. Now, Kei finds himself on the run from both human and Ajin monsters that wish to do him harm, while struggling with his new, unwanted identity.
It's simmilar beacuse in both the main character is somebody with strange powers that make him an outcast.
The main characters of both anime become a being/monster and even though at first they are scared and confused, they overcome it and become pretty badass. Who thought recomendations have to be atleast one hundred characters long, like that is so annoying. Ayways, if you liked Tokyo Ghoul, you'll like Ajin and vice versa.
Both shows are about a guy who becomes a monster and has to learn how to handle their new abilities as well as to try to not get captured (or killed in Tokyo Ghoul's case). Both are also action-packed and, while I liked Ajin more than Tokyo Ghoul, fans of one will enjoy the other
after watching tokyo ghoul (first season , personaly I do not like the second one bc it does not follow the manga so the development of the characters stops ) , ajin delivers the same struggles of a boy who wakes up him inner monster (if the animation puts you off ,then you shoul try reading the manga , the story is very good )
Ajin has a very similar feel to Tokyo Ghoul and there are parallels between the two story lines. Both are compelling stories with intriguing characters. However, in my opinion, there are signficant differences between the two that give each a unique and gripping narration.
Often dark anime featuring male main characters who find themselves changed into humanoid monsters who end up battling others of their new type. Frequent explicit violence, government agencies trained to fight the monsters, and maintenance of friendships (or at least attempts at such) with humans also factor into both series.
Dark world where humans and and "monsters" live in the same society. ( Ajin (demi-humans) and ghouls). Both protagonists are living normal life, studying in school when accident happens and they find out that they're not humans anymore. Both main characters are being hunted by the police forces and special ops.Both MC's experience a lot of pain and are subjects of experiments and insane abuse.Lots of action, violence, gore, fight between humanity and ajin/ghouls. Psychological, questioning morals of what's good and bad/right or wrong, and humanity. Good soundtracks
Even though they are very similar in nature, with both main characters leading normal lives in the beginning, then becoming "monsters" and being hunted by the police, both characters experiencing torture and abandonment, they examine the same situation from two different view points based on each character's personality.
The core of these anime are dark with compelling supernatural bases too unique to be cliche.
The main male protagonist of each, though intelligent, must learn more about themselves as the series progresses and learn to harness their powerful abilities.
Conflict sparked by societal fear between these "other-wordly beings" and police.
Replace Ghoul with Ajin and you almost have the same premise, plus the atmosphere is similar. Levels of morality come in to play.
Two very simple horror anime with something to say about the human condition, also contain the very same tropes and character types; a main character becoming the feared species in society, an evil corrupt member of his kind trying to kill a lot of humans, and all of the ajin/ghouls have edgy looking weapons that aren't very well-explained so that it can be a fighting seinen.
They are very similar in the characters becoming something not human and being treated unfairly by society.
BOth share similar themes, and a deep sense pf phsychological thriller. With lots of turns and twists they are a delight to watch. You will not be disappoin ted. Give it a go.
What could happen when humans are no longer at the top of the food chain? How are the "new humans" viewed by society? Violence or friendship, what is the correct conclusion? And what really does it mean "to be human"? Both anime try to come with an answer so if you've watched one, see what the other has to say.
In a world where there are a select minority of unkillable humans that the government takes into custody for unknown reasons what will our main character do when he and the government discover he is one. How will he continue to live on the run from the government and what does the government want from these unkillable humans?
both the type of being are hunted by humans and run or hiding and they can't trust anyone.
The two main characters were tortured
Ajin is CG Animation but if you ignore it you can enjoy
both stories have dark themes and there's an exploration of human nature and what exactly does not make one human. both of the main protagonists were thrust into situations that they never wanted to be involved in and you can see their journey as they adapt.
They are simular and both have something to do with people who have superatural powers and the goverment hunting them down
In the future, a system called Sibyl presides over the country and provides order to every facet of life. It dictates which job fields citizens should go into based on aptitude tests, and can even read each resident's mental state and predict which ones are likely to commit crimes in the future. Fresh from exams, Akane Tsunemori is beginning her career as an Inspector, a specialized police officer who works to apprehend these latent criminals and stop crimes before they happen. But not all that get caught are eliminated or jailed, some join the police force as Enforcers to provide insight into criminals’ minds, and Akane is warned not to get too close to them, as they're considered little more than hunting dogs. Though skeptical of this advice, and Sibyl's judgement, Akane is determined to work together with her Enforcers to protect the peace of her city and its inhabitants.
When I watched the first ep of tokyo kushu I was greatly reminded of psycho-pass because they both entail a dark story. They're both very bloody, violent, and tell a tragedy that follows either Kogami or Kaneki. These two animes are extremely similar and have a more mature theme than majority of the high school age animes. The main characters are always fighting themselves of what is the right thing to do or the wrong thing to do. As they are both branded as evil by their contemporary society, and yet both try to find light and justice in whichever ways they possibly can.
Tonally dark, a splash of violence and gore, OST's that compliment the show perfectly, morally grey characters and a more mature story telling style than other shows in the genre - These are just some of the similarities that make this an easy recommendation to make straight off the bat.
yeah these both fill that sense of violence, eerieness and suspenseful action that could leave you wondering who would live or who would die
Though they were made by different studios, they almost seem like they were created by the same writer. If you liked one you will definitely like the other.
Both anime are dark and violent, but Psycho-Pass is on a completely different level when it comes to how deep it is, whereas Tokyo Ghoul's characteristic feature is violence.
These animes aren't alike in plot at all, but they're both dark, gory, and makes you think about humanity and society. Their tones are really similar, with their openings by the same artist. They're both based on a society that's quite different from our own, with morally-grey characters. Both center around a 'morally-good' protagonist, who goes through significant character development as they become more adapted to the new world they're thrown into. If you like one, be sure to check out the other.
good style . nice story, futuristic
Similar disturbing and forboding atmosphere. Both deal with dystopic subjects (i.e. societal conditioning, a specie which hunts humans).
Both of these anime give me the same dark feeling and I have lots to contemplate after watching. Tokyo ghoul was more gory versus psycho pass which is more psychological. Both main characters deal with larger problems than their own..
Since they're both psychological thrillers and both have kind of a taste for horror in it I think they are a perfect match. At first I despised Tokyo Ghoul because of some elements, but the recommedations here, some trailers and other stuff got me to watch both. I really don't regret it! The drama, action, psychology and everything behind it is very good and in perfect harmony. I really agree with this recommendation.
both animes have similarities in storytelling and subject matters, like the rude awakening of the main character to the real world or the fact that both stories have racial/social tensions as their settings, the sense of superiority and inequality...
Suspense and mystery are two things that both anime have in common, these are the type of stories you want to watch when you want to challange your brain with some 'what if' scenarios. You have to pay attention when watching these but that's certainly not hard to do when the characters progress noticably through these series. The action is also worth it.
Very similar themes (although alternate points of view)
very similar style. should check each one out
Reasons. Watch and realize why yourself. I came, I saw and I was a young fanperson all over again. Became absolutely obsessed. I wanted fan gear from both shows and kept pestering my friends to watch them (not something I have done in about 9 years because adulting otakus play it cool - pffft, who am I kidding? Adult otakus can be as bad as the younger fans coming up at our heels leaving their mark in the fandom world like we did before anime was a click away on a computer and all we had were hopeful chances and Toonami).
These brought me back to those feelings again, of wanting to soak in it and obsess over them.
Dark world atmosphere, crime, violence and there's the beings that are hunted by the government. Lots of action, both mc's go through a lot and change the way they are.
Encased by trees that are used to make grave markers, Sotoba is a village thought to be surrounded by death - a fact that soon literally becomes the case. One summer, a series of mysterious and untimely fatalities begins to plague the small rural town. With a higher than normal mortality rate for the time of year and each cause of passing remaining unknown, Toshio, the local doctor, and Seishin the temple’s vice chief monk become suspicious and take it upon themselves to investigate. However, as the deaths begin to pile up, more people begin to wonder just what is behind this sudden epidemic; could it have anything to do with the bizarre Kirishiki family that recently moved to the village?
It's clear from the beginning of "Tokyo Ghoul" that it shares more than a few similarities to the vampire anime "Shiki." There's the most obvious similarity: the monsters that devour human flesh but appear human, with the exception of the creepy eyes. In addition, both have buckets and buckets of gore splattering across the screens.
However, what is probably the most compelling reason for the dual recommendation is that both show the more "human" aspect of being a monster, what with characters who truly try to do away with and ignore their violent need to eat humans.
(DISCLAIMER: Yeah, yeah, so "Tokyo Ghoul" isn't exactly finished, and I haven't read the manga. So it's entirely possible that the series does a complete 180 and turns into a freaking magical girl anime. However, even if something drastic does occur, my point about both being gory and monstrous should still stand. And that, you know, they're both entertaining as hell.)
Both Shiki and Tokyo Ghoul have monsters (vampires and ghouls) with black eyes and red irises, and both of them have a desire to feed on human flesh.
Even tho the setting is completely different, the concept is somewhat the same. Therefore if you liked one of those 2 titles, you're probably gonna like the other.
Dark atmosphere, gallons of blood, gore, creepy eyes... These are just a few things the series have in common. Even the plots are similar: monsters (Vampires in Shiki, Ghouls in Tokyo Ghoul) are living among humans; some of them trying their best to fit in, some of them hunting for flesh every night. The biggest similarity is in the theme itself: who is better and has more right to live - humans or monsters?
On the other hand, while Tokyo Ghoul is filled with mindless violence and flat characters, only trying to impress with how much blood it shows, Shiki is actually a psychological anime with well-developed characters facing the existential issue.
Both involve humans and creatures with a human appearance living together. These creatures can only survive by consuming human blood which causes them to fight eachother. The greatest similarity between these shows is the fact that it views both perspectives and that some of these monsters still own their humanity and are just trying to live a normal life. Shiki focuses more on the mystery and the horror, while Tokyo Ghoul focuses more on the gore and action.
Both feature a human vs monster scenario where the monsters easily blend in with the humans making it diffcult for the humans to discern friend from foe. Not as important but montsers in both series also have red black eyes which I thought was kinda interesting.
The really interesting thing about these two is that they both humanize the traditional "monster" in a way, with characters that toe the line between the traditional ideas of good and evil. Tokyo Ghoul has a slightly more impressive animation style, however, Shiki can hold its own in that department as well. Both move at a quick pace but do not overwhelm with too much information at a time so that you can watch an episode and feel like everything and nothing happened all at once. On an unrelated note, both have positively delightful OPs.
Both have very dark themes. There will action, well wrote dialog, and plenty of violence and bloody scenes While Shiki is more of a time killer, it has it's good points. Meanwhile, TG will have you on the edge of your seats.
I think Shiki was better overall, but if you're looking for something else supernatural Tokyo Ghoul isn't horrible. Both are horror-oriented, but Shiki is barely horror at all whereas watching Tokyo Ghoul made me naseaous a few times. That being said, if you're into supernatural anime and are okay with gore, check out TG. Shiki has a wonderful story and a brilliant protagonist.
I honestly think they are very similar because both have horror (obvious) and have that desire to eat humans therefore both ghoul and vampire are very similar, shiki has that blood and gore which TG has and is a good horror anime, I think you should check out but BUT if you want it to have a good story and plot like Tokyo ghouls I wouldn't recommend this anime (my opinion)
On the surface, one might not think to equate these two too strongly. Both are violent and gruesome (Tokyo Ghoul being more so) and share a similar atmosphere of despair and needless suffering. However, one of the main themes that each anime was trying to get across is something like this: humans, ghouls, and vampires are really much more alike than they are different. Both make you think hard about who we call a monster and who we call a friend, and each has some strong doses of shame, misery, and revenge.
I think if you like one, give the other a try. Just know that Tokyo Ghoul falls more onto the action side while Shiki leans more towards mystery and suspense (it starts quite a bit more slowly).
Both stories focus on war between the two sides and inability to cooperate with eachother, making you question who is the real bad guy with both sides having justified reasons for their actions. Both shows are about morals and what's right and what's really not. The artstyles are also kind of simular.
For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...
The characters (maybe the lack of depth) give off a similar feeling. The difference in the trope is that the protagonist in Elfen Lied is the usual useless guy, who is dragged in a situation full of violence that he cannot comprehend, whereas in Tokyo Ghoul the protagonist evolves into a fearsome creature. Once more, we see a variation of human beings with supernatural powers, being hunted down and experimenting upon, and are faced with the question of who should survive and whether the two species can live together in peace. The animation is similar, though Elfen Lied is older, and in both anime there is a fair amount of disturbing violence.
Both Tokyo Ghoul and Elfen Lied have a species that are similar to humans but not quite. Both also deal with how the species are treated by humans because of their differences from humankind. Both series are also really tragic and make you feel bad for the nonhuman species and contain large amounts of gore.
This one is hard to explain. I'd have to say it's because the action in the show is portayed in a similiar way. Also both shows have an undertone of severe gloom and depravity while often demonstrating a light and uplifting feel.
bloody anime about fight between humans and supernatural. both are very good highly recommend
I agree with a lot of what's already been mentioned by others. Mainly these animes has sort of the same "feeling" and theres gore.
Both series revolve around a common theme, a nonhuman species within the human society murdering or devouring humans. Naturally a clash for survival arises and we are shown the mutual hatred for each species to the other, of course characters with different perspective exists and the story focuses on those characters. If you like violence, you will find it enough on both.
Inspite of obvious similarities in the plot, the execution is completely different. Elfen Lied is much more mature with a romantic subplot and is more pchycological, while Tokyo Ghoul is more action centered.
Because there are monsters killing and slaughter innocent people. It's not as brutal as Elfen Lied. It may not be the best substitute, but it will do the trick while you search for a new anime. Both are great anime!
After a catastrophic epidemic kills every adult on earth, vampires arise from the shadows to enslave the remaining human population. Yuichiro and his friends are kept as vampire fodder in a creepy underground city. Yuichiro dreams of one day fighting back, and the first step is staging a daring escape from their vampire overlords...
Tokyo Ghoul and Seraph of the End are action-oriented shows with a side of mystery. Set in a dystopic version of urban Tokyo, a war wages on between non-humans and the human side represented by a shadowy militant organization. Within the non-human faction, there are hidden motives and power struggles. Throughout the course of the first cour, the series slowly builds up to a climactic confrontation.
Kaneki and Mikaela's character arcs are similar in that both were innocent boys turned against their will into beings that feed off humans. Eventually, both become more ruthless and cold because they realize that sacrifice is necessary to save the ones they care about, especially their best friend who is a human getting caught up in the war between the humans and non-humans. Both Kaneki and Mikaela refrain from feeding off live humans, instead resorting to alternate food sources. Still, they take great pains to repress the nature of who they are and resist the urge to feed. Thematically, both characters symbolize the struggle to survive with their morals intact.
Kaneki's character is also similar to Yuichiro as both are 'special' among their kind and have a strong desire to protect everyone. However, to realize the full potential of their powers, they must embrace the monster within.
Tokyo Ghoul and Seraph of the End essentially tell the tale of a conflict between two species but with flipped perspectives from each other. Seraph of the End is told from the human side while Tokyo Ghoul seeks to make us empathize with the non-humans. Both Tokyo Ghoul and Seraph of the End will diverge from their manga counterparts in their sequel with an anime-original ending.
Pretty cool story
humanity batman-ing up with gear.
Ghouls... vampires...sooooo blood :D
These animes both revolve around supernatural creatures who keep being targeted by armies because of their species. No one listens to them which forces them to participate in unwanted fights.
The ghouls and the vampires in both of these series are alike in some ways, and are both at war with the humans, as humans are their primary food source. Also in both series, we see the point of view from the humans and from the point of view of the ghouls/vampires. In Tokyo Ghoul we see this primarily via Kaneki and Amon, and in Seraph of the End we see this through Yuu and Mika. There's a familiar flow of action and suffering between the two anime.
Both of these shows have unraveling mysteries as well as groups of people trying to figure out right and wrong. If you read the manga to both shows, you will see that their worlds both are extremely interesting.
Half-devil Anzai uses his devil-born gifts to protect Tokyo from devil related crime. His will of never drinking human blood becomes severely tested while protecting his love, Tsukasa. Will he be able to resist the urge of his demon instincts?
There both pretty much the same thing the main characher is a Vampire/Ghoul who dosen't want to hurt anyway, the only real different is Devil Line more of a romance well Tokyo Ghoul is more of a Psychological type anime.
Intense story, action, and devils. I was hooked on both of these animes and I can't express how good they were. Highly recommended.
They are very similar in storylines. Each have their own merits but the overall concept of the shows are very similar.
both present a unique alternative form of humanity, with Devils and Ghouls being the alternate form, respectively
These to anime have the same plot they are both based of of ghoul except the face that this anime has romance
If you are into ghouls these two are great. Although these take very different looks at ghouls, because Devils' Line is romance driven.
Although Yuji Itadori looks like your average teenager, his immense physical strength is something to behold! Every sports club wants him to join, but Itadori would rather hang out with the school outcasts in the Occult Research Club. One day, the club manages to get their hands on a sealed cursed object. Little do they know the terror they’ll unleash when they break the seal…
Both series revolve around the main character being possessed/gaining spiritual abilities that they must control and maintain
Both series feature a protagonist who gains the abilities of an inhuman being (cursed spirits in Jujutsu Kaisen, ghouls in Tokyo Ghoul) and uses those powers to fight against those very same creatures.
Both series revolve around the main character being turned into or possessed by an inhuman being. They use the abilities gained from that to fight against the cursed spirits (Jujutsu Kaisen) and other ghouls (Tokyo Ghoul).
They just... match. It's hard to explain.
Tokyo Ghoul is by far one of my favorite animes, and jujutsu kaisen is amazing so, it just works.
Has similar dynamics such as the supernatural and plotline aspects. Involves MC gaining/finding their power Both have humorous tones although they follow a serious man vs self conflict. TW for Tokyo Ghoul as it has themes of torture and death. Both are in the action genre so extreme violence is included.
