The last of humanity fighting a mysterious enemy. Sidonia's story is paced better/faster than Titan and introduces new plot points regularly to keep you interested. Sidonia is like Titan in space with mechs and a stronger plot and characters. I feel like Sidonia accomplishes what Titan is trying to do much better.

The story takes place in a city where it's said that has thousands of levels. In a shutdown area, thousands of levels overlap each other, you couldn't tell the sky from the ground and you couldn't tell which way is up or which way is down. Maybe the original purpose of this story is to unravel the mysteries bound in this time and world. For the humans who found this vast rare multi-level city, the mysterious main character "Kirii" wanders to search for the "Net Terminal Genes" that were not infected.

Despite the contrasting settings, both series delivers a premise that hits the sci-fi horror chords. The main characters confronts monsters in their worlds as they fight for survival. Throughout both series, they uncover the horrible truth regarding some secrets that were met to be locked away. There is decent amount of action along with great story building present in both series. Recommended for fans of sci-fi.

Different time settings but the atmosphere feels the same with the grim reality involving monostrity that threatens humanity's very existence. Claymore and Sidonia no Kishi conveys the very essence of survival. However, there is resistance involving characters who takes a stand and fights for what they believe in. There are mysteries relating to the monostrity present in both series. Furthermore, the main characters themselves are topics of mystery relating to their background origins. There is the reality of horror that becomes pivotal to deliver its message to viewers into both series.

Both deal with humans fighting against aliens. They are dark, and have a heavy atmosphere and a unusual storytelling, with many scenes without words. Both are similar in the characters design.

In both the main character is a guy who suddenly becomes a mecha driver, passing from monotonous life to a fast-paced one! Both have fights with big mechas against a misterious enemy, lovely art and good plot

Similar character designs, a near immortal protagonist, futuristic setting and themes of what it is to be human, and what it is to be a weapon. Both really great manga full of intense action, a well-conceived science fiction world, great art and interesting questions. If you like one, the other will definitely be worth checking into.

Both of these manga have a seemingly indestructible enemy and deal with psychological problems and have lots of people dying...
