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  read more

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!

High level action, many powers, epic battles and several plot twist. Akame ga Kill's "imperial arms" are like Kill la Kill's "uniforms".

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.

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.

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).

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.

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 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.

Pilot episodes similar with a group of innocent people and violence. -They both have bloody violence in a fantasy setting, with Goblin slayer's being more traditional with guilds and adventurers. -They are made by the same animation studio - White Fox Would recommend both if you are looking for an entertaining violent anime.

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.

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.

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!?

Similar MC 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.

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.

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.

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)

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.

Main Character belong to a group which characters assassinate bad peoples to erase corruption in the city, in the name of their justice.

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.

Both have: - 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).  read more

Although their premises and plot progression are completely different, they're both stories set in a medieval fantasy setting filled with armies battling each other, lots of violence and death, super powers or magic, romance between two enemies and political overtones. So if you liked one you would probably like the other. With that said, I have to make clear that Grancrest Senki is more focused on politics so it might get a little harder to get into. If you happened to watch and like both of these series, I suggest you watch Windaria.

Although they have completely different premises, Akame ga Kill and Windaria share a few elements, such as: -Medieval setting. -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 beginning to end and never throws in off-putting comedy in the middle of its tragic moments like the other anime.

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.

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.

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.

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 the anime have supernatural power (specially the battle armor). Protagonist is both the anime tries save their country from evil or corrupted government. Few similar characters.

They're both pretty good shonens and have too some sad parts, that's the genre I really like.

+ 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

Adventures of a team of strong warriors have to facing many enemies, including some really powerful villains. There are many super powers to see, and really epic battles.

#DankRecs 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.

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....

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....

Ultraviolent story with a bunch of unlikeable characters as cast that pretends to have some political themes, but it's just an excuse to put gore on it.

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.

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  read more

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

They are similar in the way that it is about main characters that are on a quest to stop those that have wronged him, and seek justice for it, through their enhanced abilities.
