Attack on Titan

Both stories involve a defense force that fights against giant monsters and a protagonist that is motivated to fight those monsters, ends up becoming a monster, and takes advantage of feir new monster powers in fighting the monsters.

The plot is kind of similar. It revolves around humanity survival and fighting big creatures. The main protagonist, although is much older, also becomes one of the creatures they're fighting against to.

Fullmetal Alchemist

Fullmetal Alchemist

The first law of alchemy is that "one cannot gain something without giving something of equal value in return" - a rule that two souls dare to cross. When Edward and Alphonse Elric try to revive their dead mother, breaking the taboo of human transmutation in process, Ed loses his right arm and left leg while Al loses his entire body. After the tragedy, an alchemist named Roy Mustang visits them and tells Edward to become a state alchemist to find a way to recover what they have lost. Accompanied by Al, whose soul is now attached to a metal suit of armor, Ed is fitted with auto-mail parts in place of his lost limbs and becomes a state alchemist by the name of "Full Metal Alchemist." Together, they set forth on a journey to find the Philosopher's Stone - the one item that is rumored to have the power to restore them.

This is a gut feeling thing, but I'd say if you like the tone of one, you'll enjoy the other. Both deal with monstrous things and some serious implications, but manage to smoothly break up the mood with comedy. The style of humor is similar, I feel.

Iron Knight

Iron Knight

Tsubasa Teppei, a young boy, wakes up in the middle of the street to discover that the world has gone to hell, with no memories after he had gone to school earlier that day. A strange epidemic appeared that transformed many humans into mindless monsters called Goblins. Some of these Goblins have retained their human minds, but not their human morality. It seems that Teppei may not necessarily be normal either. Does he have what it takes to protect the people that he cares about?

I don't really know why but when i started reading Kaiju No.8 the first thing i thought was that it really resembles Fire Force. In both manga the mc wants to join the special forces to help out and make their chaotic world more peacefull.
