Tatsumi and Elizabeth set off an adventure. Night Raid (NR) and Nanatsu no Taizai ( Seven Deadly Sins ) are portrayed as villains. But in reality are the good guys who face off against the corrupted rulers. Both NR and SDS have unique members who wield awesome powers and have unique personality.
I don't know how to put it.. I just got the same vibres from them..
If I must say it, I admit I think they are not really special or anything. But for some reason, I enjoyed them in a good way.. Maybe in story telling I think, both series are good in story telling..
Group of powerful characters set out to try and overturn a corrupt government that pretends to protect its population while instead oppressing it. Akame Ga Kill is more edgy whereas Nanatsu no Taizai is more fantasy.
Both of these anime have an organization that people consider as an organization of criminals (At akame ga kill night raid and here-the seven deadly sins) but these criminals are turned out to be the good ones and the country or army is the bad one.
When I first watched this anime, I thought it was really similar to Akame ga Kill, except I enjoyed Nanatsu no Taizai way more.
- Both Night Raid and Nanatsu no Taizai are seen as antagonists in the country, though in reality they were the good guys being framed.
- Both Elizabeth and Tatsumi set out on an adventure, with Tatsumi being in Night Raid and Elizabeth with the Seven Deadly Sins.
- Main characters have a bit of a romance with the main girl characters.
Set in a medieval setting with characters appearing as the villains in their respective worlds when they're actually the heroes. Action gets quite brutal in both and the main mission of the heroes is to overthrow the rulers of the kingdoms they once called home.
Based on a group of heroes who are being attacked by their own kingdom. Powerful characters fighting their way to the kingdom to reach their goal which is peace and get rid of the rotten people within the kingdom.
Both main characters are seen as the villains, when they have a noble cause destined to a greater cause. In the end of Akame ga Kill! you can't say that there is an happy ending or that could be anything more in the plot. Good comedy, the theme "love" is very explicit in both, and there are present very good battles with great awesomeness.
Both of these anime take place in a very similar setting. The overall concept of "evil" group against the "good" government is the same. And they are both action anime with great fight scenes, and great characters.
Both have a medieval environment.
Both have action packed fight scenes.
Both have opposite factions fighting each other. Night Raid vs Jaegers (Akame Ga Kill) and The Seven Deadly Sins vs Holy Knights (Nanatsu no Taizai)
Both share some romance in the story.
Both have some comedy and ecchi moments throughout the season.
If you liked Akame Ga Kill and it brought powerful emotions to you Nanatsu no Taizai introduces you to corrupted place where good guys were framed for committing murder of superior. This includes a lot of special powers and Night Raid is similar to Sins.
Like Seven Deadly Sins, Akame ga Kill sets you up with a rag tag team of criminals who are not as bad as society would have you believe. The group undergoes challenges from the reigning government and seeks to destroy the evil growing within and free the people of the city. I think they both share similar general plotlines and if you enjoyed one you will probably enjoy the other.
In both series the main characters try to overthrow some kind of corrupt political power in Nanatsu no taizai's case it's the kingdom and in Akame ga kill it's the emperor. Both of the series are very entertaining and they are both 24 episodes long. Both of the series are Action, Adventure shounen.
In a world of kingdoms and knights, of incredible powers, where a group of people are treated like villains, when they fight against the tyranny that is in the same town they swore to protect. Wrapped up in amazing skills they fight against a similar group, of which will be linked emotionally. Two animes full of action, occasional comedy, a bit of fanservice (which will never be so badly received) and of such personal and dramatic stories that they contain in each chapter of their life.
both animes involve similar stories about a group of guys that fights against the corrupt government to restore peace and justice.
these animes have the best character development of all time.also both of these animes share same atmospheres and background.also these animes have unique styles and lots of wonderful fights and battles.for sure if you liked one then you will like the other
Besides both being a great anime. This animes has many similarities.
Let's start with the story line. Both of them shows a group of people rebelling against their country's government or kingdom shall we say. Those bunch of rebellions are bound to fight against the superior of their country in order to gain peace for the people. But what the people actually sees their doing that they are a group of traitors who brings sorrow and deaths to the country.
The main male protagonists also does have similarities. Other than being a badass, They also have overpowered skills and their swords skills are far beyond than any of the characters.
The main antagonist are both who works for the government and both contains superhuman abilities but both are beaten by the main protagonist. (for Akame Ga Kill I was talking about Emperor Makoto which was beaten by Tatsumi) read more
if you really liked akame ga kill so you will absolutely adore nanatsu no taizai. these two animes are too similar to each other. the bad guys are the good guys. and the gouverment which people think that they are good are against with alot of funny moments in both of them.
First we have the Seven Deadly Sins in Nanatsu no Taizai, then we have Night Raid in Akame ga Kill!
- Both sets of main characters are seen as the villains of the world, when in fact, they are the ones who are keeping the peace and balance in the world.
- Both shows have a giant cast with lots of fighting and violence. Good guys, bad guys they are all awesome!
- The story for both shows start out slow but eventually get super interesting and you'll be glued to your seat wanting more.
- Both anime are about a group of vigilantes fighting against the corrupt governement.
- Both shows are set in a medieval setting with knights and the use of magic.
- Tons of bloody awesome violence and action, at odd points characters become romantically driven.
- The characters are very well developed and intense in both animes.
- They have super powers and abilities and the fighting scenes are spectacular.
There's no such thing as absolute good or absolute evil, there's always more than one side to everything. The Holy Knights of Nanatsu no Taizai and the Capital Government of Akame ga Kill are supposed to be the ones enforcing the law and safekeeping the peace, but, it turns out they're actually the root and source of all problems. read more
Villains who seeking for the truth and justice are the real hero. Meliodas (NnT) and Tatsumi (AgK) will bring you to the world where justice can not be found. Therefore, they will give you an amazing adventure and awesome battle to bring back the justice and reveal the truth about the fake world where they lived. Anger, sorrow, and other emotions are part of their adventures. And sacrifices are the most painful reality on their journey. With their amazing power and ability, Meliodas, Tatsumi, and their companion will slay everybody who opposed them. Support and join them to reveal the painful truth...
Epic stories with a similar setting, characters with cool powers, main characters that are portrayed as villains, but are actually working against the corruption of the government and being framed. Both really enjoyable with lots of comedy and goofy moments, yet really serious situations and fights.
In Akame ga Kill the main characters are potrayed as the bad guys, or according to kingdom in the show, the same goes for Nanatsu no Taizai (Seven Deadly Sins) They are also potrayed as the bad guys, by the kingdom, but through the show we learn that there is something else going on! and things isn't as it seem! i really recommend you to watch it. (Full of action, funny parts and got sad moments too)
They both have similar feels to the anime, a government that is corrupt and a traveler joins a group of strong people except in akame ga kill they are assassins an in nanatsu no taizai they are knights
Both are fantasy action shonen esque anime.
Neither are deep or thought-provoking but both are a great watch if you'd like to watch something dumb and stupid but also a bit fun.
Both have decent fight scenes.
Both have weird romantic sub plots.
Both of them feature groups of "bad" and "good people" (Night Raids/Seven Deadly Sins and Jaegers/Holy Knights)
Both have romance between some characters
Both are about defeating the politic system that rules the kingdom
Both are a bit gore and have fanservice
Also, I found them very similar from the beginning, I don't know why, and enjoyed them so much. If you liked one, you'll probably like the other as well.
The main characters of both these anime and up in an organisation without wanting it in the first place. They get caught up in a fight they didn't want to fight, but have no choice left. If you like anime with a lot of action and good fight scenes, then these anime are just perfect for you!
These two have a similar story. The MC both start as weak and alone but they eventually gain strength and they learn the importance of friendship. They also both go against the societies they live in.
Tatsumi and Kaneki both fully experience the cruel reality of the world they live in.
Akame ga Kill and Tokyo Ghoul were both based off their respective manga's.
If you have seen one you should watch the other, if you haven't seen either you should watch both.
If you guys are interested in anime with killing an a strong mysterous plot go for tokyo Ghoul. If you guys want an anime with lots of killing and a plot about characteres traveling the world with tons of fighting I'd go for Akame Ga Kill.
Both MC's enter into the cruel world where they see violence, blood, corruption. In a dark world full of misunderstandings mc's have to forget the moral codes in order to protect what they care about.
Good soundtracks, lots of fighting, a few funny scenes.
Both animes are similar in the actiony/brutal-actiony and thought involving aspect of the characters.
tokyo ghoul is more monsters vs humans and the fight for survival and what is truly right and wrong.
akame ga kill is more oriented to stop the government oppression, and are the means we use really necessary for a better future, and is seeking revenge the right thing to do. (more so the latter)
they both involve a lot of thinking about what is truly the best decision, and both main characters end up following the darker path they become acquainted with. if you liked the action and the values the characters upheld you'd like tokyo ghoul or akame ga kill.  read more
While most people will disagree with me, I think both of these were pretty similar.
Both shows how a group of people try to find peace (or the lack of it) in their own way.
In both, we have people with "supernatural weapons"; also the characters in Akame Ga Kill and Tokyo Ghoul, personality wise, are pretty much simiral.
They may be really different anime, but that doesn't mean that they cannot be similar; I recommend watching both already, if you haven't.
Tokyo Ghoul is anime in which you will find yourself surrounded with gore, horror and tragedy. Society doesn't approve of "Ghouls" who are not welcome. Kaneki Ken - young male suddenly finds in this world. It is similar like Akame Ga Kill MC finds out that capital is not so sweet like he thought.
Both main characters were weak, normal people living a normal life until one day something surprising happens and changed their lives and they each have to fight a fight that they don't want to but in the end it makes them stronger
These two shows contain very dark and tragic themes and death and gore is involved. The action is really intense between the two sides.
If you found one of them entertaining, you should be able to enjoy the other as well.
Very bloody and also heartbreaking. All these shows tear characters away from you. Each one has a light hint of romance plus lots of action and will keep you entranced for the whole series. WARNING: VERY GORY.
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 pursue for power is imminent and whoever got their hands dirty first will have the dominance to turn the tide in a brutal conflict whether it's with their own ally or the enemy.  read more
Both animes are based in a historical (or in SnK's case, a historical-like) setting. They are both quite graphic, and both have a very similar look in terms of the setting (eg. the look of the cities, how they're both surrounded by walls, etc...). Both have a group of characters fighting their enemies, though AgK has a bit more of a medieval look overall. They also both contain shocking (frequently graphic) scenes that are often completely unexpected.
One of those animes that if you liked one, you'll probably like the other.
If you liked one of these series I am pretty sure you will like the other one too. I'll tell you why. First of all, both of these series center around fighting, sword fighting to be precise. The main characters both have to go through hell in order to become stronger because they want to protect what is dear to them. But in the harsh world they live in, that is not so easy... Be prepared to see a lot of bloodshed and emotional loses throughout the series...
If there’s one anime Akame Ga Kill has been compared to that will have to be Attack on Titan, where all the similarities rely on the violence and gore, the beautiful settings, the kill-anyone policy and other spoiler-y things.
The overall atmosphere in both anime are very similar-- both about a shounen boy fighting for something that he wants/believes. Both series are fairly bloody, so if you enjoyed that aspect in one anime, then you will probably like the other. These anime also both have a pretty dark/despair feel to them; death, after all, is not a light subject.
Akame Ga Kill has a big cast (Nightraid) and does a good job on focusing on each of the characters, while Attack on Titan also has a big cast from the different corps, it tends to focus more on the main three characters. Another difference is that the antagonists in AGK are human (in the bare minimum of the word), while in AoT they are giant man-eating titans.
All in all, if you enjoyed one series, you will most likely enjoy the other. read more
They are both about killing, it both has violence, blood, and it will both make you cry. But if you are very used to gore, tragedy, blood and those stuff, Attack of Titan wouldn't make you cry too easily. But Akame ga Kill, if you haven't read any spoilers, it will definitely make you go crazy. (By saying crazy I mean crazy over characters)
Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) has Giants that eat humans, and Akame ga Kill! has monsters and cool supernatural weapons called Imperial Arms. It also has an evil emperor, which makes you wanna see how the main characters defeat them.
Have fun watching Anime!^^ read more
if you like main characters protecting their cities from monsters then you will like this.
Attack no titan is darker and more emotional but both of them have their moments
so If you like one then you have to try the other
Akame ga Kill and Attack on Titan are both popular shounen anime with a main character fighting to protect their city. They also have a lot of blood and gore along with a dark plot and character deaths.
These anime share the same premise of taking down a corrupt empire with a group of rebels. Plus, they have an obsession of killing off characters. There are also a lot of action scenes in the two series.
both animes revolve around groups of terrorists "outlaw" that fighting for the justice "their own justice".
both have amazing of fights and battles.of course Code Geass have a smart settings and more Mecha fights while akame ga kill! focus more on the assassination plans.
I GUESS If you like one then you will like the other.
Here we have an anime that is about a rebellious group (Black Knights and Night Raid), who tries to destroy an Empire that they thought was f-ed up. One of their members includes a tsundere (Kallen and Mine) who might have feelings for the MC (Lelouch and Tatsumi) and a stoic girl (CC and Akame) who dresses up similarly too. They also have powerful weapons that they often use throughout the series (Knightmare and Imperial Arms). The black-haired title character (Lelouch and Akame) also has a younger sister (Nunnally and Kurome) that they loved dearly until s**t happens to each other. And also, lets not forget about lots of action and blood; as well as the deaths of many major characters (although the deaths in Code Geass are handled way better than in AGK). read more
The two worlds have similar tragedies BUT they're different enough to keep the stories separate AND interesting. The action scenes are incredible!! Well-suited characters follow a well-planned story.
The element that makes Code Geass better than AgK is the setting: the real-world. Evidently, I find interpretations of our future much more interesting than a fictional world and I'm sure you will too. I HIGHLY recommend Code Geass if you're looking for a similar, but much better, show to AgK.
A boy is coming from a village to a city to become a "dog of the military".
In Akame ga Kill he is doing it because he wants to save his village.
In FMA: Brotherhood he is doing it because he wants to save himself and his brother.
In both anime they soon realize what the military is really doing/will do to all the people in the city.
There is a lot of great action and little comedy too.
Tatsumi reminds me a little of Edward, with his firm determination and unyielding loyalty (and sometimes, naivete). They are both trying to take down a corrupt government, and they also both experience what it is like being unable to protect what they love, and work hard to change it.
Akame ga Kill just started, but it's already possible to notice it's similarities to FMAB.
Both show a world where a huge country appears to be corrupted from within. In both, we follow a young, talented lad who, during his quest, becomes disillusioned about the world surrounding him.
In general, AgK appears to be a nicely balanced mix of action and drama with a dash of comedy from time to time, similarly to FMAB. If you liked FMAB, I'm pretty sure you should at least give Akame ga Kill a chance.
Both anime have a wide eyed protagonist who wants to work for the military bc he aspires to do good. However, with the passage of time and the help of rebels within the country, he realizes that his great city is not what it seems - it is being eaten away by sheer corruption, and is headed by a figure head that is deliberately allowing it all to happen for their own personal agenda.
Both characters undergo changes, mostly because of the revelations that they face + the deaths of those close to them.
I found Akame ga Kill a watered down version of FMAB, because it lacked the character development of the latter. The anime focuses more on the fight scenes and making it more visually appealing. Nothing wrong in that, if that's the kinda stuff you prefer watching! read more
I believe that akame ga kill has a bit of everything. It has some nice comedy, great action scenes and some tearjerking moments. The same can be said for FMAB which i why i think you will like this anime if you like akame ga kill.
Both anime appear emotional to watch near the end of the series (aka a masterpiece). They both have powerful magic users that are either seen as good or bad with some the antagonists sporting sadistic features. Nonetheless, similar emotions were felt bu people who were into the story plot.
ELITE GROUPS + WEAPONS: The "goku uniform" in Kill la Kill and "imperial arms" in Akame ga Kill both play a central role in the overall plot of the stories. Both animes have a high level of action, great humour, plot twists, and unique complex characters.
both animes are involve with lot of epic battles. they have similar main characters.
and most important thing is the character drawings "design" and it seems that the
producers are using the same drawing technique
these animes also have awesome backgrounds and similar environment.
if you like one check out the other
Akame ga Kill! is basically Kill la Kill and Game of Thrones combined. It has lots of ability based combat, interesting story revolving around the problems in the kingdom, and many deaths. And It's awesome.
MC are both similar.
You have to like the clothing or weapon to wore it.
In both anime their special gear evolved.
Everything is about killing.
In both anime MC wants to make a revoliution and joins a organizations.
To start, the title is very similar to the title. There are characters that use a sword to fight and have rapid movements in terms of speed and reaction time. There are also characters that sport special suits known as either Kamui or Regalias. Likewise, in Akame ga Kill, some characters have special weapons known as Imperial Arms.
Lastly, the main character of Akame ga Kill is visually similar to the main character of Kill la Kill, with black and red clothing and skirts.
A boy with a sad past, meets a girl who is a member of a rebel group, whose members seek the restoration of the actual corrupted and evil society/government. The boy joins the rebellion, starting a revolution against powerful villains. Akame ga Kill!'s "imperial arms" are like Guilty Crown's "voids".
Akame ga Kill! And Guilty Crown both involve a male protagonist who is dragged into a group of terrorists, more or less against his will. These terrorists are not ones who kill innocent people, rather they fight against corruption. Arguably, the terrorists in each series are the "good guys."
Both series involve rebellion, have great music to go along with the action, has a hero joining a rebellion team though being unsure about what he is doing, and both involve weapons that have unique abilities.
- Evil Government thats taken over the Country
- Boy meets strange girl who introduces him to some type of Rebel/Resistance group that are wanted by the leaders of said Government
- Twisted character in the Government side with no sense of mercy or kindness who just kills whoever they want
Same plot base: A young boy is recruited into a rebel organization, who are fighting to save the world from the corrupted government. In both cases the rebel orgnanization is depicted as bad. Both are good, and an enjoyable watch. One is a Mecha (Guilty Crown), the other isn’t (Akame ga Kill!).
A boy joins a badass team of wanted killers, who works in the shadows against various evil forces and villains. They will run very dangerous tasks, with crazy people and epic moments. Really violent and cruel shows.
Roanapur is the worst place you could find yourself in. Similar to Capital in Roanapur streets are filled with corruption and immorality. Simple man who was on his business was captured by pirate group Black Lagoon. He is betrayed by his former employees and left with group. How he will not change and adapt to the style of mercenary?
even there is no similarities in main settings but Both Black Lagoon and Akame ga Kill! are telling the story of a group of assassins.
these assassins are very skilled "near to super power!" and they know how to use their weapons with the perfect timing especially Black lagoon.
An average man finds himself in the midst of a group of criminals. He has two options, join or die. He chooses to join, and turns out to be better for the job than anybody would have guessed. Funny one moment, intense the next. Be prepared for a ride.
The stakes are high! At any moment any character in the cast can and will drop dead. Both of these shows involve characters being placed in situations where their life is constantly on the line. In Akame ga Kill! characters fight each other with weapons called Imperial Arms (or Teigu) and the result of these battles is often fatal. In Danganronpa the characters must kill another character in order to "graduate" while surviving the verdict of a class trial. If you're into shows where characters are constantly in danger then either one of these will do for you.
Survival of the fittest. Brutal scenes everywhere. The characters should kill the people around them so that they could survive. Killing is what makes these both anime very similar. In contrast, Danganronpa quite provide an explanation for every killing and is somewhat logical but in Akame, they often just kill and kill and kill to overthrow the corrupt empire. If you enjoy watching bloody anime, then these two will never fail you.
Whenever Seryuu go crazy, her face reminded me of those guilty murderers in Danganronpa. These two focus on killing. If killings and blood suits your taste, these are your cups of tea; that I'm sure you'll love to drink. :)
both Danganronpa:The Animation and Akame ga Kill! have different main stories but similar survivor process
in Danganronpa: The Animation you have to kill before you graduate while in akame ga Kill! you have to kill before you get killed
also Both of these animes have a similar styles. i like the way that these animes will allow you to think about who is gonna die next.
these animes are the best example of the comedy mix with action..
I think the characters are quite similar. We have Tatsumi and Naegi, both are similar in apperance and in personality. They are nice guys but smart and strong. Akame and Kirigiri are similar too. They are mysterious, smart and quiet.
There are tragic death scenes in both and have a very exciting story. There are a lot of good characters in both. Sometimes comedy but then it suddenly becomes serious.
Both series are really awesome!
Re:Zero and Akame ga Kill are similar in regards to the fact that both of them initially appear to be a light comedy action story, but they both end up sharing much of the same themes later throughout the series.
Both involve the main character enduring many hardships, including death, forcing them to maintain a strong mentality which will continue to push them forward towards their final goal. They both share episodes of despair which will hit you right in the feels, they both have some comedy relief throughout the series, and both main characters experience romantic feelings (which I personally enjoyed most).
I regard them both very highly and thoroughly enjoyed both of them; I think if you enjoyed one, you should consider watching the other. As a forewarning without giving away any spoilers, I will say that Akame ga Kill is a much darker themed story than Re:Zero, but I would not let that deter you from watching both. read more
While it may seem like an unlikely recommendation, but both shows start off like it is going to be a good action/adventure but go dark really fast. I was blown away and surprised by both shows after the first episode. Something I was thinking is going to be funny and more of a comedy, but it took a wrong turn and went Madoka Magica on me.
Both shows have really nothing in common besides that, characters aren't even close to being the same, story is completely different. But both shows have amazing characters all the way through. Both shows are full of action. Full of adventure and surprises.
Watch them both and you'll see what I mean.  read more
Akame ga Kill!, and Re:Zero are both fantasy shows done by studio White Fox. Each show has some bloody death scenes. I would say that overall, Akame ga Kill! is more violent, but that does not make it better. In fact I think Akame ga Kill is a fairly bad show, and I am actually enjoying Re:Zero.
I watched Re:Zero around the time when I first got into anime, and now I'm watching Akame ga Kill, and it's giving me serious Re:Zero vibes. They were both made by White Fox, and are also both fantasy. Whenever I watch an episode of one, it reminds me of the other. I am enjoying both very much, and I recommend both.
-Both will emotionally scarre you
-Both have a fantasy setting far different from the regular utopian one, showcasing unfair societies and the hardships one must go through
- " have a lot of deaths (won't go into detail because of spoilers)
If you are into a little bit of "gore" theme and would want to see straight to the point action, then somehow this will entice you to go for this series.
Some of you may encountered that "Akame Ga Kill!" is a no good series. Well for some reason:
1. They started of really good but upon reaching the end. They did not anymore follow the manga series.
2. (P.S. - I may be a little bit biased here) Rule of thumb, just don't pick who your favorite characters are you'll see xD
Last but not the least if "drama" or simply known as "feel trip" will be an ingredient to this series. read more
It's one of the most similar anime that you could find to Mirai Nikki. It's going in the same line, although the argument is different.
Perhaps this anime doesn't have a part as romantic and fictional as Mirai Nikki, in other words, it's more possible or seems more real.
Punctuation that I have put in this anime is similar in both because graphics are very good, opening and ending are fantastic despite of they don't have a lot of soundtrack, but the best is the unexpected, that surprises you, especially at the end.
In summary, if you like Mirai Nikki, I believe that this anime will like you.
Violent and bloody shows, where the main characters have to fights against many monsters and powerful villains. There is an ascending progression of the plot, with many epic moments, great battles and incredible twists.
Alpha Women who take a lead, tells about organizations' movements, but Akame ga Kill is rather warm with its comical character while Claymore faced much serious situations. Not to mention, a careless lead character man. If you like Jeanne d'Arc archetype, then might be liked Claymore surely in the characteristic matter.
They do have different feels. Akame is more humorous while tokyo ghoul is quite serious. However, their similarities lie in the dark themes of corruption and the harshness of reality - your loved ones will die and there's always at least two sides to everything. Both have great villains and i think an anime/manga/book is only as good as its villains.
Both shows play around the thought of the death of someone you like. Both shows are dealing with a corrupt world that the characters thought they knew but then they learn that the fairytale world they had been living in is actually hell.
Both are a little dark
(but to be clear very Tokyo Ghoul is way darker due to the serious tone)
(Akame ga kill has some comic relief and funny aspects)
but both have opposing forces trying to mold the world.
Akame and Tokyo are both about rebellion in there own respective manner, provide a team of conflicted characters, slight romance, and sad forth comings.
To be honest both end in similar ways <trying not to spoil anything>
Both are great in tone, story, and uniqueness
Defiantly a Grade A recommendation
Both anime 'appear' to have dark themes. While Akame ga Kills theme is overshadowed by the misuse of comedic shticks, Tokyo Ghoul's theme appears to be deeply ingrained in the anime through the music and tone that the anime sets. But take a closer look, the anime's plot and dialogue have nothing to do with these so called dark themes. In actuality, these two anime share nothing but bad script writing and wasted potential :(
Very bloody and also heartbreaking. All these shows tear characters away from you. Each one has a light hint of romance plus lots of action and will keep you entranced for the whole series. WARNING: VERY GORY.
There animes both give off a very similar feel. The main character is a boy living under some kind of oppression and bent ton seeking revenge for the death of his comrades/"family". He starts off extremely powerless and scared, and eventually his drive for revenge gives him power and the perseverance to get stronger.
In both animes it starts off a little uncertain. Like, you don't really know what to expect from it and the plot can become good or bad depending on what happens. And then the sudden fighting/bloodshed that catches you by surprise hooks you and suddenly you're excited for a new episode every week.  read more
In both of these anime, the main character undergoes a sudden yet unsettlingly dark tragedy. This tragedy consequentially makes them into a person who highly values and protects the relationships that they form with others. Both main characters find themselves on a team of skilled individuals with their own goals and underlying motivation to fight for their cause. Each main character also possesses a strong will to fight and sense that they hold the power to accomplish a great change in the world.
Additionally, both anime depict a weak and lonely character who happens to meet someone that is able to grant them a considerable position of power. The character is able to utilize this to fight for the greater good of humanity as well as to accomplish their personal goals.
Both anime also contain unique and powerful weapons, which are tailored for the fighting styles and personalities of the characters who possess them.
Overall, both anime share a similar dark theme as well as dialogue, plot, and sense of camaraderie between teammates who are struggling through a dark period in time.  read more
Owari no Seraph and Akame ga Kill! are two shows featuring a colourful (literally, they have quite the hair colours) cast of characters and themes of tragedy and revenge can be found in their stories. There are two sides in each series that fight against each other, and the main character joined the 'good' side with great hatred for the other side (more for Owari no Seraph). Special types of weapons and skills are also involved in their fights.
Both of them are animes concerning happy-go-lucky group of teenagers with superpowers and/or superweapons (and a tragic past) who kill bad people to seek better days. Both of them have wasted potential. One has a bunch of average comedy that's often misplaced while the other has a bunch of fujoshi baits. Still enjoyable though.
While Highschool DxD is mostly more lighthearted and less openly violent than Akame ga Kill they both focus around groups of characters with special weaponry. Highschool DxD calls them sacred gears. Akame ga Kill calls them teigus or imperial arms.
Oh but word or warning, Highschool Dxd is far more fond of its characters than Akame ga Kill.
These anime, although one is about demons and ones about assassins, are a little similar in my opinion because they both contain a but of fanservice but DxD sure has more and both of them have groups fighting one another,the battles just seem similar to me, and the main characters surrounded by a lot of females
Both of these shows are followed by a group of friends assassinating people, so if you liked DxD, you'd like Akame Ga kill. Lot's of suspense on this anime, it will keep you on the edge of your seat at times!
Both are blood-soaked action series with a varied cast of characters who can (and do) die at any time, and while other series of its type drag their feet with poor pacing and filler, both Basilisk and AgK tell a complete, fast-moving story in precisely 24 episodes.
In 1614 AD two rival ninja clans, each supporting a son of Hidetada Tokugawa as the next shogun, send ten representatives each to fight to the death for the possession of a scroll.
-The leaders of each group are in love with each other even though their clans are at war with each other
-Neither side is simply good or evil, they are both in a grey area
-Deaths occur frequently to members of both clans, almost always bloody
-Both are fighting to change the government
-Romance is an important part of Basilisk
-Basilisk is the more serious story of the two (R+ for Mild Nudity)
-The manga of Basilisk is uncensored while the show is toned down
both animes involve with similar stories about teams that should fight against each in deadly battles
Akame ga kill! revolve around modern city and politics plus funny moments
but basilisk is much sadder and more violent then akame ga kill!
Both Anime center around sword fighting and mythical creatures. The main character is on a quest to make himself stronger and wants to become the best in order to complete is life goal. They have to learn how to survive and make new allies and friends in order to achieve their goal. Do you want a story full of passion, friendship and epic mindblowing battles? Than you should watch these series.
The main characters are both young swordsmen who set out towards a place that they think will be wonderful, but soon discover the ugly truth about the place.
Both Akame ga Kill and SAO involve fantasy creatures and lots of well-animated fights.
Some of the character are similar: Kirito and Tatsumi, Klein and Lubbock, Silica and Mine.
They both start out as great anime with lots of potential but soon deteriorate, but I think that if you can ignore the bad stuff you can enjoy both of these series.
Oh and did I mention that there's a lot of kawaii girls?
They aren't similar in terms of story but they're both shows that really catch your attention end you'll end up loving them. People that analyse anime will say that these shows suck and I've listend to what they had to say and I agree with them but I still had a great time watching them so just give it a shot.
Action - Comedy - Drama - Romance - Game of Throneish (You prob. understand what i meant by got, after you watched this anime)
Main charecter is a arrogant boy, travels to the main city to learn about the assasins, which people claims to be the bad guys.
after many events boy learns that the assasins isnt the real bad guys it was the senator. so he joins them to make the capital city great again.
later on he understand that he is a powerless,loser who cant even kill a man and lacks of power order to win.
It's true they both kill! But they do it for their own good reasons.
(Akame Ga Kill) Night Raid: Fight and Kill against the corrupted capital for the citizens that suffer.
(Hunter x Hunter (2011)) Gon: Fights for his friends and he tries to get to his Father.
Killua: Used to kill for bad reasons. But ever since he met Gon. He tries his best to protect and stay at gons side.
Kurapika:Fight and Kills for his race. Since they get hunted down for a special feature of they'res.
These two Animes do what ever they can to get to they're goals and to protect they're beloved.
both akame ga kill and HxH are wonderful action adventure animes also they have very interesting main characters.also both animas' MC have superpowers and special abilities
these anime have similar atmospheres and they also contain some of the best fight scenes
Adlet Meyer arrived in the capital in the same fashion as our MC. He was wrongly imprisoned, but he was saved by a princess who follows him in the journey to defeat Demon King who is similar antagonist like in AmK. But he finds himself in a strange situation because there are 7 Heroes when there could only be 6. They must find the impostor and continue on their quest.
-Both main characters prove their strong skill for fighting in the first episode and end up joining a group of fighters that fight for good in their world.
-Both of these anime take place in a fairly old period of time long before any technology was invented.
-In both groups each character has there own specific skill used in fighting.
Both have badly executed ratio of comedy and dark themes. They also have characters who die without much emotional impact due to lackluster characterization (or none at all). They are also deemed much better than what it really is. They are both dark and gritty which leads to many people thinking it's deep and thought provoking, when really it's nowhere near what they are thought to be.
In essence, they're both mediocre at best.
- excellent action scenes with violence and cruelty
- harems with backstory and fanservice
- explore the big grey area between good and evil with various characters
There aren't too many direct similarities between Akame ga Kill! and Elfen Lied since they take place in very different settings, but generally speaking I think if you like one you'll enjoy the other.
Akame ga Kill! and Magi share a lot of similarities, characters' goal is to erase the corrumption and inegalities in the capitol for Akame and in the world for Magi.
Teigu users looks like characters in Magi who possess a Djinn Equipement.
Some ennemies of the main character are people who not really bad like some Jaegers peoples or Kou/Magnostad peoples.
The real bad guy is an horrible person who manipulates peoples in the Shade
(Prime Minister/Leader of Al Thamen)
Both of these animes are set in a fantasy world where magical powers are used in order to fight. They both involve dealing with a kingdom(or empire) where the corrupted nation needs to be fixed. Also, they show that comrades have such strong bonds between each other like a family would have - rescuing/saving, protecting, sacrificing and dying. Although they have awesome actions scenes, Akame ga Kill! is way more violent as you can see the excessive blood gushing out everywhere, and people being sliced in half and blown to pieces. Despite the bloody scenes, they both have great and interesting storylines which would make you keep wanting to watch the next episode. Thus, if you enjoyed Magi, then I'd recommend Akame ga Kill! read more
these animes involve around a kid and his journey of seeking the real face of this world
also both magi and akame ga kill share similar atmosphere and background.
both animes focus on magic stuff mix with comedy and ecchi; plus good fight scenes, amazing story and GOOD characters development.
Male MC joins female MC to fight opposing forces.
Lots of strong characters and special weapons.
Artwork is very similar.
One main difference is Madan no Ou to Vanadis uses romance/harem for story.
The main character lives in a time of war where many adventures are foretold to be great and interactions with humorous characters giving the similarity of a typical action adventure packed anime for all shonen fans to enjoy with a hint of fan service of course ^_^
-Tatsumi & Esdeath greatly resemble Elen & Tigre, in terms of how they look as well as their relationship dynamic.
-Elen's role as a war maiden is very similar to Esdeath's role as the top imperial general.
-The harem's centered around Tatsumi and Tigre are quite similar in the broad cast of women, including some who are bitter enemies with each other.
-Each story begins with Tigre and Tatsumi being thrust into a foreign land that's alien to them.
-The Imperial Arms found in Akame ga Kill! and the Dragon Gear found in Vanadis are similar in that they're incredibly powerful, seemingly magical artifacts that play a large role in terms of the artifact itself deciding who is and isn't worthy or wielding it.  read more
Saeko Busujima < Akame
Takashi "Taka" Komuro < Tatsumi
Both are in a group that's all about eliminating the evil and surviving.
Both live in a world where the ruled by the evil.
Differences: Akame ga Kill's Night Raides group has more members. Akame ga Kill is fantasy and medieval while HoTD is more realistic and in the current time. HoTD is very ecchi.
The differences are HUGE, but both have kind of the same feel.
These are seinen Anime with shounen-level plots.
Both shows thrust the characters into a situation of grave danger, where there is a great risk of characters dying.
Tatsumi = Takashi Komuro
Tough MC who gets to enjoy much "plot" without significant character development.
Mine= Saya Takagi
Both are pink-haired, twintailed, gun-loving tsunderes.
The former is understandably leagues above the latter in her weapon of choice, but if HOTD got a few more seasons, Takagi could emulate Mine.
Esdeath = Saeko
Both suffer from serious psychological issues despite being stoic ladies of war, and are very popular with the respective fanbases.
Leone= The Nurse (forgot name) etc...
Both are action anime which have a large main cast. Either cast are not playing the role of the "good guys", but are more about being those which society condemns, yet we still see the world from their point of view as the protagonists.
Both anime have a lot of deaths, some of which revolve around the main cast.
Both casts have battles against giant monsters.
Both anime have elements of romance between the main characters.
Separating the Haves from the Have-nots, that's the name of the game for both shows where the group goes to overthrow the corrupted establishment while being treated as "nothings". They also kill off characters as the story progresses and show lots of gore to emphasize. Genre is generally the same dealing with "modern medieval fantasy" but Ange has mecha future tech mixed in in addition to dragons whereas Akame is more "robin hood".
same gore , the main character is taken out of what they believe the world is to more corrupt and deadly world both have super weapons (akame) got ancient weapons while (cross ange) mechas they both have stress less humor episodes, while (cross ange ) is on the echi side (akame) is more light hearted but both have some very dark scenes
If these two are anything to go by, lately there has been something of an anime fad where DARKDEATHBLOODDOOOOM subject matter gets blended with... the desires of otaku. One minute you'll be watching a gruesome dismemberment scene; the next you'll be watching lighthearted anime humour, with boobs and pantsu thrown in. HUH!?
Brynhildr has a premise involving predicting future deaths, human experimentation, needing medication to not die horribly whilst coughing up blood and many other feel good aspects. Then, naturally, you have Mr. Average Harem lead forming a girls-only observatory group--the heroine, ofc, being a childhood friend with no memories. New girls are introduced one after the other, with pantsu and perverted humour at the ready.
Akame has a premise involving assassination, corrupt nobility, torture and many other happy thoughts. The lead quickly becomes a member of an assassin group, determined to right the wrongs of society... but not before getting to know each female member of his group; including a tsundere with a gun that is angered by the lead walking in on her naked. In fact, even the 'villain' of the series - known for her cold-hearted, sadistic slaughter - sees the lead and instantly decides she wants to mate with him.
Akame is more over the top with its shounenish character design exaggerations and more entertaining because of it, but both shows SHOULD leave the viewer perplexed. If you go into it wanting DARKNESS, harem time will result in cringing. If you got into it wanting future waifu candidates, you'll want to skip the whole blood-death thing. The question is, who actually gets what they want out of these shows? NOT ME! read more
Those shows kind of gave me a similar feeling while watching. The plot isn't very similar but the character setup and the overall vibe of the shows kind of resemble each other.
First off, you have a male main character who is kind of hung up on childhood friends that supposedly died. He is surrounded by a lot of girls that are quite strong fighters and own special abilitys (GnB) or weapons with special abilities (AgK).
They include fanservice quite a few times and some of the girls are similar in their behavior as well.
Both have some gore in them but also include some rather light hearted moments and "slice of life"-ish aspects.  read more
Both have the cast of characters being "killed off" by each passing storyline, so detailed that they involve blood & gore for dramatic effect. The girls in the group like to tease the MC, so fanservice is within certain parts of the show for comedic relief. A subplot involves sisters (Akame & Kurome) (Kuroha & Mako) belonging to the good & bad side that eventually duel each other to the death.
In both series the main characters embark on a journey against the kingdom, however the circumstances in each series for the kingdom to be vilified are different.
Also, both of the series include a group that grows and changes as the journey continues.
Please note that Akame ga Kill is way more violent and tragic than Akatsuki no Yona.
Both anime have the rebel characteristic in them.
Akame ga kill is all about rebellion and so is Akatsuki no Yona. Akame ga kill focuses on one rebellion while Akatsuki no Yona focuses on more than one.
Different eras but with similar action scenes.
Akame ga kill is more violent and bloody (grafic).
Both have murders of those in power who doesn't deserve their status.
While Akame ga kill has a clear idea about who the bad guys are, Akatsuki no Yona makes you question if the bad guy is really bad.
Both contain romance "under the surface".
Although the main theme in both anime is absolutely different, the one important thing make a huge similarity - overloading amount of BLOOD, GORE, DEATH and true (not like in ShinNoKyo) using of trope EVERYONE CAN DIE. So if you bored from wacky, childish animes and bulletproof main characters, you will be entertained by both of this series!
-Both contain a dramatic amount of gore
-Both have unexpected deaths
-Both have a really dark story
-Both contain huge amounts of violence (torture, murder, etc.)
Gantz has much more nudity and has a lot more meaning to deaths, while Akame Ga Kill! is kinda mourn for 30 seconds then your back to normal, and much less nudity.
Akame ga Kill has several Berserk references which can be observed at the first episode; the episodes intro, the infamous gang where the protagonist involved in, the corrupt government, that lucky charm item cliché.
When so many lives are at stakes and wars will commend so many lives. The similarity of both these anime is well the death you'll know what I'm talking about once you see both anime. Both anime have some colorful characters so see both anime and their beautiful and yet gruesome story line.
They're both over-the-top anime that at their core, are coming of age stories where the protagonist eventually reaches the mantle of their mentor. However, there are huge tonal differences, with Akame ga kill being extremely edgy whilst TTGL tone is more epic.
Basically the Aniki relation is in both series and they are very similar to each other.
Besides that the amount of ridiculous action is included in both series. There are as well some scenes that are so similar you could call it an easteregg
Both anime have a badass inspirational Aniki (voiced by the same VA too). The stories of both anime also share some similarities in that they both revolve around the main characters fighting a revolution targeted against an oppressive ruler.
Where Akame ga Kill!'s world and characters treat insanity as a norm, and brutality as an acceptable hobby, Katanagatari does similar things, with many villains with various degrees to their insanity.
The 'Teigu' of Akame ga Kill! is also closely reflected in Katanagatari's 'Deviant Blades', extremely powerful relics that can no longer be created. Katanagatari's story revolves around recovering these weapons from the villains, which is also a plot point in Akame ga Kill!.
Both anime have elements of thrill and adventure with flashy action, with side dishes of comedy and relationship building.
There are a few similarities with Soul Eater and Akame ga Kill:
+ Unique weapons
+ Unique character designs
+ Lots of action and blood
+ A misleading character title (The story's not about Akame/Soul but it's about Tatsumi/Maka)
+ An anime adaptation that finished way before the manga did resulting into an anime original ending which many say it as one of the worst anime endings ever
I dont see why nobody recommended this. Both animes have nice artstyle, dark/similar plot and great individuals who have their own idea of what is right and what is not also higher powers who try to control them. Both series are original on their own but somewhat similar in a few aspects.
They focus on group of assassins who have been through tragedy. The group isn't part of the goverement/police. They kill people who they deem to be corrupt and harming society. They both include a harem and ecchi.
Both are about a group of people trying to bring about reform, one with vigilantes and the other with cops. MC is kind of a newbie at first but becomes accustomed to their new life and tries their best to be an actual asset to the team. Both are pretty gory, bloody, violent and have epic fight scenes. At first it seems they are just fighting random criminals but it starts to piece together the more you watch.
Either you fight for the established government and you commit atrocities in the name of justice, or you fight against the established government and you commit atrocities in the name of justice. Nice, isn't it?
Main Character belong to a group which characters assassinate bad peoples to erase corruption in the city, in the name of their justice.
The bad guy of the show is the Prime Minister in the two stories.
Characters not hesitate to kill peoples who deserve it.
The group of principals characters fight against other group who look alike
(ex: Jaegers from AgK and Re:Code/Code Names from Code Breaker)
Adventures of a wanted outlaw team against many dangerous villains, in a fantasy world, where there are many monsters and strange creatures, but also a lot of different powers: Akame ga Kill!'s "imperial arms" are like the "devil fruits"' powers.
The main character of both series have a specific goal that couldn't be achieved without the help of their nakama (companion.) The Strawhat Pirates of One piece and the Night Raid of Akame ga Kill are closely similar in the way that they are made of a bunch of interesting character who have to deal together against several common enemies and are founded on a great friendship relationship. Plus, they are all considered criminal by the government.
These stories evolve in an action, drama, adventure, comedy and fantasy genre.
The devils' fruits of One Piece and the teigus of Akame ga Kill bring to the wielder great and unique superpower.
Every character of both series are nicely done. Even the antagonists are very charismatics.
Both series present a corrupt society.
However, the battles in One Piece are funnier while the battles in Akame ga Kill are more gore. read more
-Sword and Gunfights
-Fantasy scyfi style
-Beautiful Music and imagery
K- Scyfi fantasy that dives deep into the emotions in different personality and types of people. Constant struggle for control over massive power and the claims that come with it. A mystery hidden in plane site, but dangerous none the less.
Akame Ga Kill - en epic tragedy that defines every persons personality before and during death. a struggle between the power hungry and the innocent people, both obtaining powerful items that are dangerous and deadly.
Both histories envelop a main hero who moves from his natal village to the big city and inadvertently becomes a part of a band of unconventional, bizarre and wild characters with great habilities. The nature of the teams are also similar.
The character developments are quite similar. In both series we have a faction of warriors with different skills who fight for the people and protect them, and the story begins with the foreign mc joining to this faction and acting like a newbie along the firsts episodes. Also, both animes play with very graphic blood scenes, and focus on the fights, ideals and fellowship.
in akame ga kill all have some magnificient power this is like in darker than black hei and oteas have power the story is kind of same that all of his comrades are gone one by one and i think it is the most saddest part in both anime anime. both animes are excellent to watch
The setting of the story takes place somewhere in the medieval times where the main characters in here are either overthrowing the government, or starting a war. Throughout the show, there are obstacles that the main characters must pass through and to achieve their goals. The main themes on these are; corruption, revolution, and war.
These shows are filled with action packed, somewhat dark twists, and comedy.
Both shows are action packed and have a group where the government is trying to stop them. Even though this is the case, I feel like these shows are similar because while I was watching them they had a similar feel to it.
Both deal with a skilled male leads who have their loved ones brutally murdered and both plots revolve around them resolving their problems with stronger, more skilled people. With loved ones stripped away, they both realize the harsh truth behind the murders.
First of all: story.
The story isn't quite equal, but I do recommend this.
You'll see blood, sorrow and other strong feelings.
The most similar thing between them is that in both of the anime's they are struggling for survival, for others, and themselves.
First recommendation btw! 0(>_<0) first (0>_<)0
Akame is like Saya: hard bloody fights await them. But while Saya will be alone against powerful monsters, Akame will be in a team against mainly many human villains. The most common thing is the high level of cruelty, violence, blood, gore and death.
Both are anime were nearly everyone dies filled with lots of gore and lots of blood. The death scenes are quite unique despite some of them being the most hilarious. Both shows also have one of the least awful dubs that Sentai Filmworks has.
Both series involve an MC character that joins a special squad. Each person in the squad has a single, unique skill. Where they differ is in the nature of the squads: the MC joins a special detectives squad in Bungou Stray Dogs while the MC in Akame ga Kill joins a squad of assassins.
In both series, the squads face an immensely powerful and cruel group. Neither series holds back on the violence as well.
Both series are beautifully animated and set in a medieval fantasy world. The stories both revolve around corrupt rulers and the rebels who are working against them. The protagonists are both cheerful and naive individuals who are oblivious to the corruption until they see it firsthand. There is plenty of action, with comedic relief and romance as well.
In Akame ga Kill, there is a clear difference between the good and evil, while Shigeki no Bahamut tells the story of a conflict between three races in which there is no true 'bad' guys.
Sword fighting and mysterious monsters, the central theme in both of these series. The main character is on a quest to kill monsters because he wants to make the world a better place to live in. Both of them also get thrown in a situation they weren't expecting and make new friends. The world they live in is ruthless and they have to learn how to survive in order to progress towards their goal.
If you like blood, swords, and boobs, the Bleach and Akame ga Kill! are for you.
If you are a casual anime fan, who is looking for a general anime expierence including awe-inspiring art work, a decent storyline, with decent characters and epic battle scenes, the Bleach is for you. Following in the footsteps of Ichigo Kurosaki, we find out that Ichigo is about to learn the full extent of the universe; including the realms of the dead and 'soul reapers'.
During Ichigo's travels, he encounters some wild and wacky characters; a beautiful soul reaper who cant draw called Rukia, a talking teddy bear named Kon, a man obsessed with fighting called 'Kenpachi', and many more.
Meanwhile, Akama ga Kill! Reaches out to the more hardcore anime fan; with more blood, guts, and R17+ content then you can throw a book at, keep this away from children! We follow Tatsumi, a young swordsmen who is looking to get money for his crumbling village, that is tight on finance due to the corrupt imperial government.
Finding out that the capital is a lot more corrupt then he originally thought it was, Tatsumi joins Night Raid, a guild of assassins that use Teigu (Imperial Arms) as their signiture weapons. These range from a sword that poisons people, a pair of scissors that can cut anything, a pair of gloves that produce razor thin wire, and even a bullet less gun.
Both Bleach and Akame ga Kill! have their ups and downs; Bleach is almost 400 episodes, and that is a little bit too long to count on. But Akame ga Kill! is only 20-odd episodes, but differs from the manga, and the ending is rather shoddy at best.
However, I would pay to see Aizen from Bleach against Esdeath from Akame ga Kill!. The Yaegers vs The Arrancar would be icing on the cake.
In short, if you watch anime as a form of entertainment, watch Bleach. If you watch anime because it enthralls you, and you love everything about it, pick up Akame ga Kill!
Bleach - 7.5/10
Akame ga Kill! - 9/10 read more
Both Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku and Akame Ga Kill are anime that have a very dark central theme. Death is prevalent both and often angers watchers as terrible things happen to good characters in both anime. If you enjoyed the death in one, you will enjoy the death in the other. But Akame ga Kill is more story driven than Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku.
If you liked the tone of tragedy and violence present in Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku/Akame ga kill.
Besides knowing that no character is safe.
You will certainly like it Akame ga kill/ Mahou Shoujo Ikusei Keikaku.
((based on the first episode))
-heroines get swindled at the beginning
-heroines are both traveling and trying to save their village/country
-share the adventure & fantasy genres
-have child rulers (Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii = king, Akame ga Kill = emperor)
difference : SSwU = more on the romance side as to AgK has more violence and blood
I find the art similar. In proof with that, the Sun King in SSwU have an older version--I mean, look alike in AgK. You should watch the series if you want to know who am I talking about. Please be aware that the plot are COMPLETELY DIFFERENT.
Both are abouzt a guy who gets himself somehow randomly into shadowy organisation full of strong people viewed as "bad" by others but it´s actually better than "good" guys. Akame ga Kill is more violent.
Someone on the forums just pointed out to me how similar these series were.
Sure, the setting is completely different, but
-Both have cookie-cutter protagonists that are frustrating to watch
-Both use most of their budget on fighting and fanservice
-Both have catchy opening themes
-Both have considerably large amounts of bloodshed
-Both are about a group of people banded together through some sort of power (Tatoos, Imperial Arms)
Both animes has a variation of killings and violence throughout the anime, main characters can eliminate anyone with one attack:
-Akame can kill anything with one cut
-Kenshiro can kill anything with one finger
I think this is similar to Akame ga kill because, it's both a fantasy world where the "criminals" In the story line are the typical "good guys". Both of these stories take place in a, historical fantasy period, the one with mages, swords, special weapons. These animes are similar in some ways then another. I feel if you enjoyed Akame ga kill, you can or try to enjoy Chaika the coffin princess, but this anime has a much lighter mood.
Both are anime with very good art, very violent and brutally bloody/gory. In the end, both anime are rather clunky in their execution in spite of how pretty they look and sound. Both could have been significantly better, but if you like good looking high quality action, these are two anime to check out.
For the protagonists, both become a "monster" that is considered dangerous to humans and are (initially, at least) treated poorly by other people. Both have to survive by killing. Lots of blood, lots of gore, lots of death. Eventually, both face a situation where large numbers of people are at risk of dying, and have to stop a giant monster creature. The main villain in each is rather overpowered and kill a lot of people, some who are close to the main protagonist.
Kabaneri probably kills more people, but ends on a more cheery note compared to Akame ga Kill, where the people who die are generally more personal to the story. Both anime involve lots of battles that are well animated.
Whereas Kabaneri starts off very very strong, and kind of falls off a cliff 3/4 in, Akame ga Kill is inconsistent in a disappointing way.
I am honestly surprised no one recommended Vampire Hunter D yet because both anime are actually quite similar.
-Settings that mix in elements from various real-life time periods, sci-fi and fantasy
-2 opposing teams
-Characters have unique powers
-Characters die left and right
-Heavy focus on action
However, I got to admit that the vibes of these anime are different as Vampire Hunter D is more serious and mature, but the different vibes shouldn't be a problem.
Maybe in comparison,both of the animes are hugely different from eachother,however, there is one aspect that is a common denominator in both animes. Both introduce a villain character who is a lost family member of the main character.
Both are very similar in the fact that there is a depressing, realistic side of the story spread throughout, with characters contemplating real issues in their society.
Furthermore, there is also a light sided humor in both (despite the death and killing).
Both have a shonen like a format and feel but with more mature content and dynamic plot points. Not necessarily groundbreaking animes, but are unique enough, have good action and a decent, well-paced plot. Also, they both involve mysterious weapons that are the source of the characters powers. This creates interesting dynamics throughout the show.
I know this recommendation looks strange but I find these two quite similar.
Firstly, there's blood and violence. Loads upon loads of action, violence and bloodshed with many interesting ways to kill different people.
Second, the characters. Some characters I found quite similar (AgK with Akame and Baccano with Ennis or Chane). Also they have a few share of crazies (AgK with Seryuu and Baccano with Ladd) and power-hungry bastards (AgK with Esdeath and Baccano with Claire). Many of them are also divided into groups (AgK has groups like Night Raid and the Jaegars while Baccano has groups like Jacuzzi's gang and the Martillo family).
Thirdly, comedy is quite similar. However, while AgK's comedy doesn't fit very well, Baccano's comedy fits a bit better for the show (thank you Isaac and Miria).
Even though Akame ga Kill is far from being as great as Baccano, both shows are still a fun watch. read more
I actually find the premise of these 2 shows quite similar. So you basically we have this innocent looking guy who enters in a city that looks normal. Things are not what he expected it to be and suddenly get thrown into all the chaos that the city has. Also loads of action, bats**t moments and a few hot girls here and there.
These shows have a different atmosphere, but a similar fate. The main characters are fighting for their life, as assassins or as soldiers, and will face death many times during the story. These are not light hearted stories, in fact, it's the exact opposite.
Gore? Bloodshed? Assassination? Killing in brutal ways? No one survives? All of them! That's what defines these. Key difference is that Hellsing has an infinitely badass aura to it. Akame ga Kill!, on the other hand, is shallow.
Both stories follow a team of teenage warriors who each wield interesting weapons (Imperial arms/bubuki).
Both teams fight against an oppressive and tyrannical government.
Both anime have a powerful lead antagonist (Esdeath/Reoko).
If you like Jojo you should probably like Akame ga Kill and vice versa. They both actually gives a pretty similar feels, which is:
-Over the top fullpacked actions
-Characters having 'bizarre' abilities
-Simple/Easy to understand plotline
-People actually die when they're killed
-Fanservice in their own respective way (Jojo by using homoerotic machoness, Akame ga Kill with the camera angles, Esdeath, Leone, etc)
-As both are shounens, the usual exaggerating shounen vibes are present in both series.
Although they have completely different premises, Akame ga Kill and Windaria share a few elements, such as:
-Two armies fighting each other, from the same kingdom in Akame ga Kill and from two different ones in Windaria.
-Lots of death and gore.
-Tragic romances between enemies.
-Rather tragic endings.
But I'd say that Windaria is better because, unlike Akame ga Kill, it does not suffer of mood whiplash, it remains a serious and tragic war drama from beggining to end and never throws in off-putting comedy in the middle of its tragic moments like the other anime.
Murder Princess is basically Akame ga Kill except it is shorter, includes royalty and has an amazing body switch between a bounty hunter and a princess. Although I liked Akame, Falis the bounty hunter seems to have a better attitude but they are still similar in character.
Killing without mercy.
Blood spilling, swords swinging and eye glimmering - these are only a few that Akame Ga Kill and Drifters have in common. What really captivates the audience to both anime is their dark tone which allures those who enjoy action. Drifters is a story of warriors from different time and places summoned to a different reality with the purpose - to fight/kill. With different principles of morality, these warriors will do anything to gain power in their new world. Of course, they won't be met unmatched - the Ends. If you enjoyed Akame Ga Kill's gore of battle scenes, then you can expect nothing less from Drifters. read more
In a medieval setting, the MMC joins up with a fighting group mostly made up of a bunch of kick-ass women. The group's goal is to take over the country, with good intentions of course. Both animes start out with comedy, though they get more serious as the story progresses. Both Oda Nobuna no Yabou and Akame ga Kill include light romance and share similar art styles.
"Akame ga Kill!" and "s-CRY-ed" both have an annoying character with a forced tragic backstory and a weapon that becomes ever more powerful the greater the "pinch" the wielder is in. (Yes, that is the exact wording from both shows.)
Furthermore, in both series, there exists unique individuals who either wield powerful weapons or incredible powers that render any opponents without them useless in fights. Of course, these two shows are action based and have the commonality of a lack of good direction in battle sequences.
The main character is a young warrior who joins a team of young people, which is against the corrupted and evil system, controlled by a powerful villain. The main girl use a sword to fight her enemies, and she is formidable and skilled in melee.
"Akame ga Kill!" and "X-Men" involve a team of powerful heroes each with their own unique abilities setting out to defeat the overwhelming force of evil and restore justice.
Both series are focused on action and contain materials regarding body-manipulations, whether it was via surgical or genetic methods.
"Akame ga Kill!" and "The Heroic Legend of Arslan" / "Arslan Senki" share the premise of a pseudo-medieval fantasy kingdom having underlying societal issues, in which there exists the oppression of foreigners and those of low birth.
These two shows both have a focus in action as well as a male protagonist who is far too naïve.
Interesting and entertaining fights of opposite factions. Many powers in Akame ga Kill! are the same powers shown in Naruto. There are a lot of similarities between the shows. Akame ga Kill!'s "imperial arms" are like the ninja techniques.
The game's adventures of Accel World, are similar to the Akame ga Kill!'s battles. The shows provide several epic fights, with many cool powers and twists. too. The main girl is almost the same, and the group of heroes has to struggle against many various enemies.
+ Alot users in both anime using Powerful Legendary Weapon (Hero Relic/Rule Fragmant & Imperial Relic)
+ Male MC (Lute Ryner & Tatsumi) is almost same, one of the similiarity is called "pervet" by his friend
+ Female MC (Eris Ferris & Akame) is really same : Sword user, expressionless, grow up inside kingdom/capital, & training to become assassin/guardian since kids
+ The World in both anime is full of corruption & discrimination, especially from noble family
+ Main theme like : "I want to make everyone happy" "I want to make world without crying" can be found in both anime
Features a very similar main lead who goes through some hardships, but is eventually picked up by a quirky band of misfits and trained to unlock his potential. Kenichi is a more lighthearted series, but stress the desire to get stronger to protect the ones you love
Both series feature sword fighting, a love story and incredibly cool monsters which will make you shiver. The main characters are also both dropped in a situation they didn't expect to happen to them. If you like epic and unforgettable battles, than these series are for you!
I'll have this updated when I finish re-watching Nee, so I'll be general for now.
The cast of Nee, Chanto Shiyou Yo! seems to be the inspiration behind the characters of Akame Ga Kill!, not only females characters but also our main male MC. From looks to personality, the cast of Nee... has been transferred to Akame in weird ways (like they put the characters from Nee in a blender and you get a mix of personas with an appearance of a blue haired demon ;))
I didn't even notice until I saw the blonde in Nee and looked at the Akame anime page, some of the characters have been straight pasted into Akame with fighting powers. Our precious Kaname is the inspiration behind icon character Akame's looks although personality was not wholly. read more
Witch/"demonic guy eating meat" manipulate emperors and plunge empire in chaos and corruption.
MCs team up with their mates to dethrone emperor.
Both anime include special weapons in soul hunter it's Pao-pei and in Akame ga kill it's teigu.
It's been a long time since I watched Arata kangatari but after starting Akame ga Kill! I felt a little nostalgic because these two animes have a very similar feel.
The main is an otherwise innocent and rather clueless boy who gets dragged into "another world" where he's forced to fight and collect a form of weapon. In both animes, the weapons being collected are selective of their users, have unique sets of abilities, and uncovering them is a fun adventure for the viewer.
Both anime has weapons that can only be used by some people so not everyone can use the imperial weapons in AGK and in absolute duo some people can have a blaze weapon and for me Akame Ga Kill was really good for me so give it a go
Both include endless fighting for several reasons.
While "Akame ga Kill!" is focused on revenge and justice, as well as hostile and corrupt law enforcement, "Fairy Tail" is focused on family and the evil nature of humans, as well as chaotic and depraved villains.
Both series include magic and magic weapons, and both are comedic at times. While "Fairy Tail" is more lighthearted, "Akame ga Kill" has a dark and malicious plot. Both are dramatic and focused on a similar sort of justice, after the motto: "An eye for an eye".
"Akame ga Kill" has 24 episodes and one season. "Fairy Tail" has over 200 episodes and two seasons. "Fairy Tail" is, as of yet, still airing, while "Akame ga Kill" is not. read more
I think it's similar because it has alot of characters in it with different powers and/or weapons and that they have something important that they have to do together.
There are many funny moments as well as many sad stories of each featured character in both animes. [ AgK has more of them]
The music of both anime is quite amazing, and although the art style is a little bit different, both are refreshing in their own ways
AgK ending was so freakin sad....!!!! Charlotte's ending was - mehhh....
Thrilling and cruel heroic-action/fantasy shows, where cool boys and young girls with powers [Imperial Arms users in AgK / ADAPTERS(lmao) in DG] have to reach their final destination.
Colorful characters [ particularly HAIR ]....
Art in both shows is amazing...
Both has more than 1 MC.....[ yeah, Tatsumi from AgK sucks ]
Really violent and cruel shows....
Just AgK is in medieval times, and DG is more futuristic....
Epic and not so [b]BAD[/b] storyline.....just...just go and watch them...
I really really believe that you [Extra-ORDINARY MAL USER ] will like DG if you watched and liked AgK and vice versa....
Both have a interesting enough premise; both have action that varies from mediocre to pretty good; both have stereotypical characters with at LEAST one standout female fanservice character and both have, in my opinion, quite sh*t endings. Well, from a satisfying perspective at least.
Both series takes place in a medieval world with action/fantasy/advendture as themes. Although, Akame ga Kill has more of a serious story approach with a slight of comedy. The art resembles each other and they are both relatively new-released anime series. Both male MC starts of weak, but gets stronger the more they fight and experience. Akame ga Kill is a must-watch if you are to medieval genre and want lesser fanservice. Besides there's more action scenes in Akame. Dungeon (...) is more comedy/romance oriented, but also has fighting scenes.
wow, have you watch this before??
yeah this is one of the first action anime that aired in 1967 after astro boy. if you've watch this before, you can imagine the plot that same as Akame ga Kill! from 2014, its so far ..
but why?? why this '67 show similar to AgK??
okay let's we see the plot before ..
the plot is quite similar with AgK, a shounen / girl like-a-boy fight against corruption of the minister in them country .. very similar in plot .. and both are adventure-romance series with some different inside it ..
yeah beside it, Akame ga Kill have badass hero, feed-like-monster girl (its akame), a cool 'gay' (bulat lol), powerful weapons (or u can call it teigu), and group of mercenary (Night Raid) with gory action and violence inside. seems more darker, right?
but Ribbon no Kishi have reverse trap (yeah, you can call the heroine like that) with moe face from '67, some 1960's comedy, drama and mystery inside it ..
both show also have a antagonist that not too bad inside ..
if you like the anti-corruption show, you'll enjoy both .. read more
Both have depraved characters, gore, violence and non-stop action. They both live in a world of brutal violence which they must fight their way through. Though Akame Ga Kill has far more of a plot, both anime can keep action anime fans entertained from start to finish.

Both are fantasy series that feature a young aspiring hero that runs afoul of the government. The protagonists friends seem to take pleasure in their suffering, and are often the cause of it. The two protags also both look alike, use similar weapons that they sheath in the same way. The humor in each show was also very similar, and is the main reason I thought they were similar.
However, they do have some major differences. For starters, Senyu is a comedy show, and never gets anywhere near as dark as Akame. Akame also focuses on story and character development way more than Senyu, which has almost none of either. Senyu is also a very short show, with episodes only being about 5 minutes long. read more
The stories of these series are about assassins life. Both contains violence, blood, a lot of action, fighting, deaths. Also art is really great. So if you like this kind of stuff I really recommend it.
However for me Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom is darker and much deeper. In Akame ga Kill! you can find comedy elements. And unlike the Akame ga Kill! assassins which kills on their free will Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom assassins are forced to kill to live.
Tatsumi lives in a dark fantasy world. Kaiji lives in modern day Japan. Tatsumi joins a band of rebels and fights alongside them. Kaiji gambles by playing mind games. Their lives couldn't be more different. However, their goals are the same: challenge and defeat the corrupt elite. Both Tatsumi and Kaiji will have to experience betrayal, death and setbacks before they achieve their goals. Both anime are dark where people actually die; there is no plot armor and no one is safe.
The main difference is that Akame ga Kill is a fast paced action anime; while Kaiji is a snail paced psychological anime where battles are decided by games. read more
