My first impression of this anime : 'This feels awfully like Attack on Titan' There are three main protagonists like Eren, Armin and Mikasa. They were surrounded by wall and trying to escape it (Although the wall doesn't play that big role in here like in Attack on Titan does). There's also these human eater creatures. Also I think Eren say something similar about them being trapped inside a wall like cattle. Well, in this case they are literally the cattle. I'd say there are also Death Note feel to it, but I lean more towards Attack on Titan.

When I watched Made In Abyss in 2017, I found that this anime had a lot of similarities to The Promised Neverland. First, the characters. Both anime focused on a group of kids who lived in an orphanage. Living in a limited area (as the adults prohibited them to go to certain places) made them wonder, how does it feel to be outside. Next, the design. Both anime have cute character designs that if you recommend it to someone who just watched anime (or someone who only watches specific genres), they would probably answer "Sorry, I'm not into childish anime". Nonetheless, both anime have astonishing art. And the  read more

Both shows start off light hearted with children/teens as the main characters, but they both take a "dark" turn in the first episode.

The first episode gives the same impression, innocent children in happy peaceful world with boundaries not to be crossed, just to discover that their lives are not as dreamy as they thought.

The same story plot where a group of kids where made to believe in something only to later on find out the truth in a shocking way.

Both shows are about kids in a dark setting where they are in a situation without much hope. In both shows the kids seem to face something similar to aliens or mosters but in a totally different way.

In both cases the show is focused in a cast compounded by kids in a dark adventure where the odds seems to be against them. I think Neverland is probably going to be a lot more "tamed/light" compared to Ima soko ni iru boku.

The theme from watching the first episode seems very similar, so you may like this as well!

Both shows deal with a supernatural group that is secretly terrorizing the central protagonist's community, and unknowingly to them, causing the disappearances of many members. It is after the protagonists discover this that they come together to put a stop to the deaths

Both of these shows have a combination of sweet and innocent moments but before you know it turns on its head and turns disturbing fast. You will be standing on your feet for much of the scenes wondering what is going on and what will eventually happen. They like to delay the darker moments and you can differently feel the fear the characters of both series are experiencing under different circumstances. Both shows follow a group of children trying to solve a mystery. The characters have a similar feel around them, and the shows are of the same genres (Horror & Mystery).

Both shows use a dark theme covered up with a cute atmosphere. The main characters are children, which must fight to survive in this cruel world.
