The remaining humans risks their entire race on a fight for survival or face extinction, the rich and powerful ruled for either the good of everyone or the greed for power. 'Black Bullet' demonstrates that good and bad are not very different depending on how you perceive it.

'Shingeki no Kyojin' has a darker history as the people have lived under fear for a longer period of time and any beings that are different from them have to be destroyed. Kill or be killed is a way to describe the ways of life of the people. Freedom of action is not permitted   read more

Humanity on the brink of extinction. They built a barrier/wall to protect themselves from the Titan/Gastrea. That wall will soon collapse. Only a select few of people are capable of killing these Titan/Gastrea. End of humanity is upon them. Will they survive in the end? Kaji Yuuki does the voice of the main character in both series.

In order to to save humanity from the brink of extinction from a mysterious catastrophe, the remaining people have built a barricade around the area that they live in. In both series, only a few special individuals have the power to fight the monsters. While SnK is set in a medieval-ish world, Black Bullet is set in a futuristic one.

Both MC are voiced by Yuki Kaji.

Both series take place in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity is on the verge of extinction due to giant monster like creatures. Both series have a city built inside giant walls to keep said monsters out.
report Recommended by Alaczer
*Both series are set in apocalyptic worlds where monsters have wiped out most of humanity
*Both series are set inside enclosed communities with giant walls to keep the monsters out
*Both series feature characters that are part-monster, and are thus not trusted by society
*Eren Yeager and Rentaro Satomi are virtually the same person, and are even voiced by the same guy
*Both series are dark in tone, with plenty of graphic violence (though SnK is darker and Black Bullet has more ecchi/harem elements)
*Both series have minor political elements

Throughout watching the series Black Bullet, I can definitely note some key similarities to that of the 2013 success "Shingeki no Kyojin".

Firstly, the most apparent similarity is that of the theme subject that evolves through both of these animes- Humanity suffered a terrible crisis in the past, and built themselves protective 'walls' or 'barriers' to help prevent the crisis from reoccurring. What was the crisis? The evolution of dominant species who have it in their power to wipe out the entire of humanity. In Shingeki no Kyojin these manifest themselves as 'titans' who posses a minorly gigantic human appearance, and in Black   read more

+ Violent action shows about humans surviving in an urban area protected by a barrier from mysterious creatures that threaten to destroy them
+ MC is voiced by Yuki Kaji and his parent/s died when he was young
+ Good soundtracks and animation with strong and enjoyable beginnings

- Black Bullet is more futuristic and Japanese while SNK is less technologically advanced and set in a European setting
report Recommended by Asfaria
-both express the themes of suffering and the loss of humanity
-both depict worlds blockaded by Monoliths in Black Bullet and Walls in Shingeki no Kyojin
-these defenses are to protect the area from the Gastrea in Black Bullet and the Titans in Shingeki no Kyojin
-both feature specific weapons specialized to defeat the enemy party, Varanium bullets in Black Bullet and the 3D Maneuver Gear in Shingeki no Kyojin
-both have similar Openings
-they give off the same vibe
Conclusion: Both indeed have similar qualities despite Black Bullet having a slight lighter ambiance.

Both involve the human race confined to a small area, some force constantly terrorizing them (Gastera and Titans), and those who are helping save the humans are feared (Cursed children and Eren).
report Recommended by GhostFaceNappa
Both are about people living behind walls to prevent monsters from entering
report Recommended by Oltiken
In both animes, people are almost extinct. The ones who are left live in a small enclosed earea and are threatened by big "things". They'll have to fight to survive.

Also, some part in the intro song from Black Bullet immediatly made me think of the intro from SnK.
report Recommended by Lwaxana
The obvious post-apocalyptic comparaison. They are both set in an universe were the humanity have almost fallen and his constantly torn by internal and external conflict. The MC have different goal, but they both do well in what in they do. While I think SnK is better, his slow-pacing can be annoying, though BB is sometime way too fast-paced.

In both of those animes there are big monsters which want to destroy the human world for an unknown reason.
They both are about the humans who strike back to defend their world from those monsters.
In both of them the humanity is driven into a corner and on the brink of extermination.

report Recommended by EatMee
Both of them are similar because both of them are about human civilizations being on the verge of extermination. Both are epic post apocalyptic type genres.

Shingeki no Kyojin tells about the sorrows and pains of young boy named Eren Jaeger who has lost his mother due to titan eating her. Rentaro, in Black Bullet, is similar to Eren in that sense, who becomes a civil security member because of the death of his parents who died because of the gastrea virus.

If you like horror and blood, this is absolutely perfect for you. Both anime involve being hidden inside walls, and battling supernatural beings.

Black Bullet and Shingeki no Kyojin encompass a world in which humanity is in a brink of extinction and are threated by a supernatural force.

Both of the male protagonists are voiced by the same person and have very similar attitudes. They are also known by their peers as "humanity's last hope

Both have humanity close to extinction. Both have only certain people able to kill the titans or gastrea. Both have humanity build I giant wall to protect them. Both have this wall threatened to be brought down.
report Recommended by Scrom
Each story is based around the human race being almost erased by giant monsters and they are now living in a limited space. Main characters have many similar qualities (and the same voice actor in Japanese). Contain people fighting against all odds to save the human race who have powers that could save the human race.

Both story is apocalyptic and has a common enemy which makes humanity endangered.
Although Shingeki shows more gore and violent scenes than in Black Bullet
report Recommended by NexusRaiser
Both of these anime are about getting invaded about something surperior than your own kind. In these anime series they try to find a way to defeat these creatures and both of these are very dark
report Recommended by -Alians-
-Both are about saving humanity, which is on the brink of extinction
-In both, humanity is threatened by strange creatures
-The beginning of the Black Bullet op is similar to SnK's
-The protagonist is young(and male)
-In both, there are more than one enemy (the creature and humans)
-The protagonist share the same voice actor

While watching Black Bullet, I found myself reminded of Shingeki no Kyojin.
Black Bullet is very different though, as there are initiators and promoters, which actually has a bit of a twist. I'll stop there, but if you liked Shingeki no Kyojin, I recommend Black Bullet, and vice versa.

They both deal with humanity trying to survive against extinction. In both animes there is a "barrier" that protects the humans against the enemy.

Both have:
-walls
-things that try to kill everyone
-"subspecies" that ultimately helps them survive
-lolicon senpai bread rice cheek
report Recommended by ferboterbo
Both take place mostly within protective walls that keep their predators out. The main complication in both animes is that the walls are broken and the characters must fight to defend humanity against their predators. In other words, both have their main defense against creatures that have been preying upon them broke down and they must fight against them in order to save humanity.
