What the 2 have in common, both involves the same MC whom where a half of a monster that has given them a significant amount of power to fight their own kind, except in TG the MC is somewhere being with the good guys and bad.
This is similar in so many ways it's almost shocking
-they are both half monster
-they become more powerful
-both start to lose there sense of humanity as the story progresses
-both half to deal with enemies along the way
Both series feature man no longer being at the top of the food chain. A human becomes one of the predators, accepts their status and overcomes great loss to become a more mature being. Many of the characters are quite similar as well.
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.
"If you were to write a story with me as the main character, it would certainly be a..tragedy.."
Wel that is what they have in common with each other in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, because both main characters kinda become darker and gain a much more complex attitude along the way..hence the quote lol. And much more !
My recommendation.. if you haven't seen either one of the above ^ trust me it's worth your while.
First one is that they both have complex plot. For guilty crown, plot really is complex but for Tokyo Ghoul √A they have made it complex I don't know the reason.
Second is both MC are doing evil thing for those who he love.
Third is MC of both serie are suffering and others don't understand.
Both these wonders of art are the epitome of top-tier horror in anime, with stark and poignant cautionary tales to boot. Whilst both cover segregation, social anxiety and racism, shiki is more focused on the generational gap.
They're both like human vs monster kind of shows and both get pretty bloody at times, Shiki is A LOT slower though while Tokyo Ghoul is pretty fast paced, the main characters (Natsuno and Kaneki) are quite similar too, on the human's side even though they aren't exactly human
These two anime share so much in common with respect to the circumstances their protagonists find themselves in. Shirou and Kaneki both struggle to hold on to their "Borrowed Ideals" and are always willing to sacrifice themselves for others. If you enjoyed watching this struggle between ideals and reality, Fate/Stay Night UBW will offer you with that same experience.
Both main characters are dragged into being different types of mutant humans. The powers in Tokyo Ghoul are more like a natural defense mechanism they are born with and in Ajin they are immortals and some can control a type of stand like in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure. Both shows are dark and dramatic, the key difference is that Ajin is a lot more cynical and Tokyo Ghoul likes to explore the interactions amongst Ghouls
Tokyo Ghoul and Zankyou no Terror are both shows who have two sides who clash due to different goals, but neither side can be determined as "the villains" or "the heros" because there is a little bit of bad and good in either side. ZT also follows the side that is seen as only bad at first, but as the series develops it becomes more of a grey area.
Both of these anime have similar themes, such as survival, turning into a monster or canibalism. Another simmilarity is the bizarre and almost random structure of the plot, which is because of lack of loyalty to the source material. Also both anime are very bloody, but most of the graphic gore is censored, for better or for worse.
Both series are about humans vs. "monster" (ghouls in Tokyo Ghoul, vampires in Owari no Seraph).
Both are very violent, bloody and kind of emotional/pshichological.
Both have the same number of episodes, 2 Seasons of 12 episodes and will probably have a 3rd Season in the future
In both anime the main charachter at the beggining is a normal boy that as a transformation (Kaneki as half-ghoul, Yuu as deamon weapon)
In both the humans are the weak ones so they use other things to fight (quinque in Tokyo Ghoul, deamon weapons in Owari no Seraph)
Both main charachters find a new "family" and have to safe their best friend (in Owari no Seraph the friend becomes a vampire).
Both are so similiar!
Are great, violent and have a lot of suspence... i really recommend both! read more
Both plots and events slowly descend into this blob of tragedy and loss. Both are bound to give the viewer a sense of confusion and discomfort, as it feels like so many knots have been left untied. Because the characters from both animes lose and suffer so much it feels impossible that anything will ever turn around for the better.
Elfen Lied and Tokyo Ghoul mercilessly beats down on the characters to the point of no return, and don't even bother to resolve the problems and finish with a neat little bow on top. And in my humble opinion it's anime like those that really keep me thinking about it for weeks after finishing.
If your a fan of either anime then your sure to love the other.
Both anime have the same feeling and fighting and story line, with Tokyo Ghoul being a little more darker and more graphic.
Both anime have the same weak/STRONG main male characters. And the love for a girl.
Both anime have the fight against humans and monsters.
Both anime have amazing endings.
The pacing and the setting is completely different; however, the main idea is similar. In Tokyo Ghoul, Kaneki struggles to find who he truly is: human or ghoul. In Ookami Kodomo, the two children, Ame and Yuki struggle to figure out their identity.
They both have great art, soundtrack, and story.
If you are still having chills up your spine after watching an intense series like Tokyo Ghoul, I recommend watching this to calm down
In the world of "Tokyo Ghoul √A" and "s-CRY-ed", there are powerful individuals who are discriminated against due to what they do and what they are capable of doing. To combat against these groups of superpowered beings who often commit crimes or do harm to society, the government has created organizations that use the same powers as their enemies.
With action being central to both series alongside "grey and gray" moralities, these two shows are also comparable in their level of complexity and world-building.
"Black Bullet" and "Tokyo Ghoul √A" are both super-powered action shounen anime series with the male protagonist being someone who tries too hard to do everything alone in order to protect those who he cares for around him.
In their respective societies, there exists groups of powerful individuals who are discriminated against due to what they do as well as their origins. These two shows are also both straightforward in their dilemmas and uses backstory to add emotional impact to the lead characters.
Dark world where humans and and "monsters" live in the same society. ( Ajin (demi-humans) and ghouls). Both protagonists are living normal life, studying in school when accident happens and they find out that they're not humans anymore.
Both main characters are being hunted by the police forces and special ops.
Both MC's experience a lot of pain and are subjects of experiments and insane abuse.
Lots of action, violence, gore, fight between humanity and ajin/ghouls.
Psychological, questioning morals of what's good and bad/right or wrong, and humanity.
Humans vs. ESPs has got same vibe as Humans vs. Ghouls. MCs try to save mistreated people. Both are quite op with Zettai MC being stronger. Both are quite emotionless on outside but are kind and have desire to protect in their heart. Kaneki joins and Zettai MC creates organization to protect Ghouls / ESP.
