Both include an element of survival and fighting for a belief. Monsters/enemies are a common theme and there is also a slight hint of mystery.

Sword Art Online is also about Surviving, Death means Death and no way around it.

Both have compelling sides to like the anime but both lack something to make it perfect, what Sword Art Online does, Shingeki No Kyojin does NOT. And vice versa.

Sword Art Online let's you see what they fight for, and what they have to lose.

Shingeki No Kyojin does not, but they do let you see epic and fluid fighting scenes that really statifies your apitite, that, again, Sword Art Online does not, there it is more "Fight and Done" when here you have to be anxious   read more

Apart from the completely different universe these animes are playing in, these aren't as different as you might think. The heroes in these series are both trying to safe the world they are living in, for any price. Both are doing this mostly because they had failed saving a particular person in the past. Kirito and Eren are more the solo, risky, overpowered type of character. Because of that behind these two heroes there is always a worried female character, who is trying to defend them from any harm.

- The both have a male protagonist, who can surpass any obstacles depending on their willpower and skills.

Both anime involve worlds where safety is no longer guaranteed. The main plotline is survival, and both anime revolved around a select few in the society that work to develop combat skills. There are also some epic battle scenes against creatures several times larger than the protagonists.

While these series ain't that similar, they are both extremely popular series. Both are extremely intense and will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time
