Titan or kabane armageddon? Decide while you still can as the wretched world falls into a complete pandemonium state. With extraordinary theme songs/OSTs and animation to accompany these series, one can only hope they get the recognition they deserve. As for the main characters in either series, a male that received the abilities of the devil while showing signs of righteousness and naivety…a female with lethal skills and deadly passion who fights to protect the people she loves. Blatant similarities like these simply can’t be ignored when in front of one’s eyes. Shingeki no Kyojin demonstrates a species’ right to survive in a world engulfed in  read more

Another story about humanity's survival. Shingeki no Kyojin and Owari no Seraph both share some parallels. Firstly, they are produced by the same animation studio (Wit Studio) and share the same soundtrack composer, Sawano Hiroyuki. In terms of story, in both worlds, humanity is at the brink of extinction and is endangered by another species (titans - vampires). The protagonist is also 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 and the animation style is quite similar. If you are a fan of Shingeki of Kyojin, you  read more

'Shingeki no Kyojin' has a darker history as the people have lived under fear for a longer period of time and any beings that are different from them have to be destroyed.

Pain and sorrow are felt in both series however they are not on the same caliber. Fighting for a better future, teamwork, sacrifice are all shallow similarities. 'Claymore' has a wide range of characters with dark past which you will feel sorry for whether they are friend or foe, it shows you the hardship of characters who only fight for themselves but in time come to terms with close friendship thus fight for one and another. 'Shingeki no Kyojin' excels in its epic twists and turns where you cannot trust anyone even in your own team. You will constantly be wondering about the next death or who  read more

The world of man is coming to an end and the struggles are imminent. In the middle of such disarray, it takes a stronger demon to defeat the ones already present today. 'Shingeki no Kyojin' and 'God Eater' resembles a ying and yang where one dwells in the past while the other resides in the future. 'Shingeki no Kyojin' showcases a masterclass storytelling and unforgettable character interactions where one must work together in order to survive.

Revenge, Suffering, Agony and Redemption... Shingeki no Kyojin has a feeling of FMA Brotherhood in which a kid who lived a peaceful life gets thrown into a dark grim life full of tragedy and agony due to losing someone important to them. However, both main characters refused to move on and dedicated their lives for revenge and redemption. If you enjoy a full packed action dramatic plot you'll love both of these series.

This show starts off a little more slowly compared to Attack on Titan but as it progresses, the pace of the story starts to kick in and it really reels you in and that's how it is similar to Attack on Titan. The soundtrack is pretty similar as well - fighting scenes, lots of death and twists and turn - humanity fighting against one another - pretty similar to AoT if you ask me. Both are fast paced, interesting and keeps you on the edge of your seat!

Both have deep world building that focus on a sense of mystery to the show's world which our heroes must try to figure out. Both have deep rooted deception and secrecy. Both have creatures that are a huge source of fear for the humans characters as they actively eat people.

Many have linked Attack on Titan to Evangelion since long before AoT's anime came to be, for highly spoilerific (NOT MECHA) reasons. To be slightly less vague, Eva deconstructed the feel good / manly / heroic mecha genre with a combination of depression and tragedy. And, to a lesser extent, AoT went against the flow of shounen fighting cliches/tropes enough to make it stand out in the same way. So, both series' differences from the norm makes them comparable, in essence. Unlike in its manga, near the end (ep24) AoT's anime had Eren act very much like Shinji from Eva: needing a peptalk and FULL  read more

The art of brutality at its finest whether it's for a cause or just pure madness. Friendships are hard to find and trust is not easily earned. 'Akame ga Kill!' does not hold back regardless of the importance of a character so no one is safe which leads to an unprecedented sea of death. Justice and the fight for survival are just a few of the mere reflection presented in this cruel world. 'Shingeki no Kyojin' reflects on schemes and deception where a line could not be directly drawn between good and evil.

The main theme for both anime series is" survival." Their peaceful days are changed forever. The humans face an unstoppable force that causes the world to panic in fear. The Zombie/Titans appear in groups and attack on instinct. With only a select few of brave humans will humanity survivor or cease to exist.

It's safe to say Berserk anime fans were left shocked & traumatised by its haunting finale. You get that feeling on a regular basis with Shingeki as characters are torn to shreds before your eyes. Not as extreme (or as sexual!) as Berserk at its most (in)famous, no, but you get the point. Images that won't leave will remain imprinted in your brain, after viewing--ye be warned! In terms of their settings, Berserk and Shingeki are both set during medieval times. Aside from Shingeki's 'Spiderman' way of doing battle with gigantic threats, you're gonna get a STRONG taste of bleak realism from medieval/fantasy epics, here. Unless  read more

(very)Generally speaking... Both series are about humans against non-human-but-human-like-form of unknown enemies. Both have special forces. Both have some kind of rocky development of an atmosphere: from the 'summer vacation' to "all hell breaks loose". No safety for any character.

If you take away Gantz's fondness of boobs/nudity/twisted humour, the death games between humans and creatures that crush men like insects - not even the respective main characters being safe - makes Gantz & Shingeki one and the same. The despair the cast convey when confronted with the terror of a threat beyond human understanding sticks the two together like glue. There's very little out there that can make people feel the same sense of dread as its characters do, whether on page or screen. The casts of the two are forced into 'do or die' confrontations with freaky creatures, knowing either it or themselves  read more

The author of Attack on Titan, Hajime Isayama, said the following in an interview: "My earliest inspiration was the adult game Muv-Luv Alternative, in which aliens invade and humankind is on the brink of annihilation." Total Eclipse is a spin-off of what Isayama is referring to, but the influence was blatantly obvious in episode two: a cast of characters were introduced and then brutally killed off in quick succession; one being eaten in gruesome fashion in front of a despairing friend. HOWEVER, later the series goes 'full harem' and there is very little additional alien bug slaughter. In contrast to Shingeki, it does NOT convince as  read more

Similar to Guilty Crown in soundtrack but its complexity in mechanics and storyline actually work and flow. I won't spoil anything but this anime get's deceptively better.

Blue Gender is the largely unknown AND under-appreciated survival gem that came LONG before the fall of Wall Maria. The grim, 'horror' tone so rarely seen in anime as characters are introduced only to be killed off without mercy (initially, in Attack on Titan) is present in both. BG has VERY little pandering, whilst AoT was influenced by shounen tropes. The most obvious similarity is the heroines of the two: Mikasa from AoT and Marlene from BG are both stoical killing machines that are shown to have softer sides via romantic feelings for the respective male leads. The most striking similarity visually is how the  read more

Both shows follow organisations that upkeep public safety from a unknown threat (Scouts & Titans + Fire Force & Infernals respectively). Both main characters also have tragic back stories of loss of family members to this unknown threat which motivates them to join these organisations which are essentially on the front lines combating the issue. They both also have great OST's and art styles.

Darling in the FranXX is basically the same as Shingeki. In both worlds humanity is struggling for survival inside man made barriers that prevent giant monsters from destroying everything. The peaceful life of the protagonist is drastically changed when the outside world collides with his own, he then joins a military like group that frequently goes outside, makes friends and discovers more about himself and the lies of the government. I could actually tell the whole story and you couldn't tell which one I am talking about. I hope I didn't spoil it much but you can figure all of this on the first episode, so yeah enjoy.

Perpetually-pissed protagonists with mommy issues. One of them protects his sister and the other is protected by his sister. If you find one of them compelling then you will find the other compelling. Both also have exceedingly slow paces.

Both shows have the profoundly important and mightily depressing subject matter of the human race's survival hundreds of years in the future. The future civilisations in each show are very different from one another, but they both face the problem of tensions and/or conflicts between species that have come to exist since our present, not to mention further issues regarding the corruption of human governments and establishments. What's also important to mention is that both shows have an element of scientific mystery; as you watch you'll find out more and more about the new creatures that inhabit the Earth through the characters' own investigations.

Shingeki no Kyojin and Elfen Lied is kinda similiar in my opinion. It's about 'creature' which a big threat to human kind. It have the same gore (Elfen Lied is more gore though), the same tear-jerking, heart-touching story about mankind and the 'creature'. It's very worth to watch :)

Both are technical masterpieces--featuring beautifully animated fight sequences, sounds and scores. If you're looking for an amazing action series, look no further than these. Beyond the technical aspects, they are also both quite visceral in nature--raising the question of whether or not we need to abandon our humanity to defeat the enemy, and exploring the consequences of doing so.

In bleach, when a human dies it either becomes a whole, whole, a person whole goes to the soul society, or they become a wandering spirt, which then turns into a hollow when they are preyed on by a hollow, or stay in the human world for too long. Ichigo, the main character of Bleach had a vendetta with a certain hollow in one of the first few episodes, much akin to the main character of Shingeki no Kyojin. Also both the main characters are very determined, stubborn, and bear a will of steel.

When men are cornered by monsters, it can be tough to distinguish the two. If you find yourself yearning for more violent mortality and characters of questionable morality, you might like a quick trip through Devliman CB.

These anime can be similar because of the goal of the main characters. Let me explain. Both Emiya (fate) and Eren (Shingeki) developped some kind of power to overcome an extremely powerful opponent. Both of them have to fight for their lives and for the lives of those they care. In the end, both of them make a huge difference in their respective way. I highly recommend both of these anime as mush as the entire Fate series although fate zero can take some time to give us some good figthing scenes.

The world was overtaken by monsters and it's the job of the characters to fight against those monsters and reconquer humanity's territory. Both also involve some level of political intrigue and strategic battles with ambitious camera work.

Though it sounds strange, Origin would have been like the original Attack on Titan if it was an anime series. It follows a world ruined by a mistake made by humanity regarding genetics. Some humans share the power with the aggressive force (titan shifters in AoT, enhanced humans in Origin). Humanity has been reduced to a small number and some people are fighting against the force while others are not. Both Origin and Attack on Titan centre on a determined protagonist who wishes to make a change.

I'm sure many people will think I'm really stretching this, but I can see a few similarities. Shingeki (Attack on Tiant) is much more serious in every aspect and it is certainly the better show with much better production qualities, overall Despite this, Kancolle and Shingeki do both have a large group of characters fighting an enemy of man kind. Both shows have a good number of characters that are not given as much screen time as they should be, but they're still good characters. Both shows have at least 1 person die before the audience really even has a chance  read more

Both animes follow a very likeable cast of characters whose main goal is to take down their respective enemies (Outlaws in Cowboy Bebop and Titans in Attack on Titan). The characters are each trying to overcome a terrible past and do what they can to support each other through hardships.

These two take place in an similar apocalyptic setting and have evil giant monsters that are trying to kill off humanity. The main hero in these two anime are hot blooded and wants to destroy evil monsters in order to save humanity. These two anime also have a similar dark tone and plenty of blood & gore.

Our protagonists decide to build up their inner and outer strength to overcome those who have attacked them at the start of both series. (Ippo was simply bullied, while Eren's mother was devoured by a Colossal Titan.) The real rise in action is preceded by a training arc. And SnK's titular Titans happen to be champion-level boxers, just like Hajime no Ippo's.

Both Attack on Titan and Kaiji have a similar style of suspense. That each time a character takes one step forward, something happens and then they took 2 step backs, adding the suspense even more. Both the stories have a narrator as well, who recaps what happens in the previous episode, or just describe events and stuff. Also, manly tears. Freakin' manly tears...*sniff

Both anime have a town surrounded by a wall, keeping humans from going beyond it. Both anime also have creatures differing from the humans, Haibane Renmei have the Feathers and Shingeki no Kyojin has Titians, the difference being Titians are more of a predator to humans than the Feathers.

Both series are very action oriented and have a dark atmosphere. If you like the sad protagonist aspect of Shingeki no Kyojin you will love Hokuto no Ken. I think they are both very similar and I would lump this into one of the big four male power fantasies including Shingeki no Kyojin, Berserk, Claymore and Hokuto no Ken.

Both anime revolve around giant killing, though one is in the literal sense. The plots involve people who abandoned all hope yet face hardships in order to achieve their goals and bring the giant killing inside of themselves.

A city surrounded by walls; a team set to defend the city and it's royalty from the unknown forces outside the wall; GIANT MONSTERS; a plot woven in mystery, surrounding the main powers and people at hand. Also, all is well till all goes to shites lol

Shingeki no Kyojin pretty much takes the plot of Devilman and adds an Ultraman garnish. In either show, we have an invasion of a hostile race that was once dormant, which is fought by using a hybrid of mankind and the evil race in question. Both include generous amounts of gore, horror, and action. If you want a really high-budget anime with a beautiful artstyle, check out SnK. If you want something with a lower budget but with better writing and execution, watch the Devilman OVAs.

Both of these anime centers around revenging the protagonist's family with mystery surrounding them. The art is very well drawn for these two anime and portrays the characters and story realistically (except the parts about magic and giants,of course).

Both Anime is fighting giant things alive from getting eaten. As to Toriko, Think about the name " Shingeki no Kyojin Kemono" but can eat beast as Shingeki no Kyojin is about humanoid giant people know as Titans that you can kill.

Watching Arslan Senki I found some similarities with SnK, even when they're very different stories. Both start with a teller that explains what's happening or happened in the past. Both have a fantasy place when the story happens, and a fantasy year, and most of the chapters start telling you what date is it. Both have a lot of strategy and on-horse action and battles. Both made me feel the same feeling, maybe because of the landscapes, the music, or the style itself. Battles, blood and people fighting for a best future. So, even if Shingeki is about titans and Arslan is about recovering a kingdom, you might like both  read more

The two series deal with how mankind deals with 'new' humans. Food shortages, struggle for survival and despair are overarching themes. Where as Titan tells a gritty shounen tale, Jintai presents a cheerful face that may appear childish but belies a very adult level of cynicism. There are strong parallels to be drawn between the two when homo sapiens no longer become the predominant species.

Although both series have very different themes and over all setups and genres, I'm still making this recommendation based solely on my experience and opinion that if you liked the kind of action that leaves you gripping your seat or jaw-dropping excitement in either of these series, then you'll likely enjoy the other. I'm a fan of anime that are very high-paced, spontaneous, and leave my mind completely engaged during the show. Both these anime really fulfilled that need.

OK, although you wouldn't associate these two series with each other as the genres are so different, the feelings I get from both series is very similar. A great cast of characters well blended together, and many intense feelings in both. The very well animated tense "action" scenes and excitement of what will happen next. The sense of camaraderie is prevalent, teamwork and strategy is needed in both. Also Hinata reminds me of Eren in that they are both very passionate about their goals, have innate talents, and are being hindered by a wall with "titans" behind it.

Having seen Shingeki no Kyojin and watching Saint Seiya, even the first few minutes can already give you some similarities: -Both have good detailed artstyle. -Characters: There's a blond haired-blue eyed character like Armin (named Alone) and also a character like Mikasa and Eren combined (Tenma). -Cities give similar feel, a white puppy in both first episodes in both series xD -Training camp episodes - to be soldiers / saints Both shows keep their originality, filled with action. If you liked one, you should give the other a try as well.

I feel these two anime series are quite similar. They both involve over-sized monsters, people who risk their lives to take out those said monsters, a central town/district that is safer and higher priority to be saved from said monsters that only the elite can live in, and an ambiguously antique European style to their towns. Both of these shows are also aimed at a fairly unisex audience, being of the action/shounen/supernatural genre.

Both shows have a main character with a unique ability that others seek to control. The main characters (Eren and Taito) have very similar personalities; they are both serious and determined but not so much that their motivations prevent them from being relatable , likable characters. The settings are both alternative realities that possess a medieval kind of feel. And they also both contain monsters/demons and express the importance of friendship and teamwork.

In both of these animes there are unusual, scary creatures. In shingeki they are titans and in garo they are demons. Both of them eat humans because of an unknown purpose. Both of the main characters started their way as fighters because of revenge (their mothers died) and then it turned to be "I want to protect someone/something"

If you like the post apocalyptic setting of Freedom where humanity lives within a very constrained existence, you will probably enjoy Shingeki no Kyojin. It's not a space drama, and there really aren't any other similarities with characters or art, but both main characters are on a quest to live freely beyond the tight limits humanity has set because of apocalyptic-like events (think Gurrenn Lagaan).

Apart from Attack on Titan Evangelion comparison, I also find Rahxephon the true child of Evangelion as opposed to Attack On Titan being the mixture of it. Regardless AoT & Rahxephon are a story about the world that would later be invaded by Titans/Dolems with an opposing organization (Wall/Terra). Both Eren and Kamina hold the key to defeating them as well as solving the mysteries behind the creatures. To go into the characters, Eren is more of a brat/shonen character archetype while Kamina is more developed and positive. What stands out to me in both series is that Rahxephon is the reconstruction of Evangelion by  read more

Action and less direct plot. Many say the manga for both is better, but it's just a coincidence. The fear of a strange creature (Titans and Tetsuo). The questioning of whether the creature is evil or not. And... the well-animated scenes.

-Both are very dark, violent, and tragic anime that involves guts, killing and determination. -The difference is that Madoka is more on magical girls, while SnK is an action fantasy series focused on apocalyptic situations such as slaying Titans. -Both are very overrated and popular anime that are highly recommended to those who are watching anime for the first time.

In both series, giant monsters are constantly attacking and only the main characters stand any chance against them. The MC uses a sword and powers up to fight said monsters. Much like Evangelion, the strength of these two series lies in their drama.

If you love the idea of of intense battle sequences, solid character development, and outstanding animation these two anime are extremely similar. You will find an intriguing plot with more than enough fighting and gore to satisfy you. The fighting however is very realistic and emotional as it is in Shingeki no Kyojin

First of all, both animes are mature(Rated 17+), with about the same level of violence and gore. Shingeki no kyoujin prooves to have a little more hostile world though. secondly, both main characters are treated as monsters for having the power that sometimes they can't control. And both of them are somewhat used as weapons to fight against their nation's ennemy.

Both are the kind of thing you'd show to someone who isn't really into anime. You've got a kind of dark post-apocalyptic setting (though the mood is decidedly different throughout) with healthy doses of blood and violence. Both have beautiful art and animation with similar art direction and character design. Not only do these two works appeal to a western audience, but they are clearly directly aiming for that worldwide market in the best kind of way.
