The art of brutality at its finest whether it's for a cause or just pure madness. Friendships are hard to find and trust is not easily earned.
'Akame ga Kill!' does not hold back regardless of the importance of a character so no one is safe which leads to an unprecedented sea of death. Justice and the fight for survival are just a few of the mere reflection presented in this cruel world.
'Shingeki no Kyojin' reflects on schemes and deception where a line could not be directly drawn between good and evil. The pursue for power is imminent and whoever got their hands dirty first
Both animes are based in a historical (or in SnK's case, a historical-like) setting. They are both quite graphic, and both have a very similar look in terms of the setting (eg. the look of the cities, how they're both surrounded by walls, etc...). Both have a group of characters fighting their enemies, though AgK has a bit more of a medieval look overall. They also both contain shocking (frequently graphic) scenes that are often completely unexpected.
One of those animes that if you liked one, you'll probably like the other.
A boy joins an organized army, in order to fight against powerful enemies who are perpetrators of really bad times for him, his friends, and the normal people. The shows contain brutal massacres.
Go to for beautiful fights in a gritty medieval world. In both of these shows anyone can die, so if that's your dish, check them out one after the other.
If you liked one of these series I am pretty sure you will like the other one too. I'll tell you why. First of all, both of these series center around fighting, sword fighting to be precise. The main characters both have to go through hell in order to become stronger because they want to protect what is dear to them. But in the harsh world they live in, that is not so easy... Be prepared to see a lot of bloodshed and emotional loses throughout the series...
If there’s one anime Akame Ga Kill has been compared to that will have to be Attack on Titan, where all the similarities rely on the violence and gore, the beautiful settings, the kill-anyone policy and other spoiler-y things.
The overall atmosphere in both anime are very similar-- both about a shounen boy fighting for something that he wants/believes. Both series are fairly bloody, so if you enjoyed that aspect in one anime, then you will probably like the other. These anime also both have a pretty dark/despair feel to them; death, after all, is not a light subject.
Akame Ga Kill has a big cast (Nightraid) and does a good job on focusing on each of the characters, while Attack on Titan also has a big cast from the different corps, it tends to focus more on the main three characters. Another difference is
They are both about killing, it both has violence, blood, and it will both make you cry. But if you are very used to gore, tragedy, blood and those stuff, Attack of Titan wouldn't make you cry too easily. But Akame ga Kill, if you haven't read any spoilers, it will definitely make you go crazy. (By saying crazy I mean crazy over characters)
Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan) has Giants that eat humans, and Akame ga Kill! has monsters and cool supernatural weapons called Imperial Arms. It also has an evil emperor, which makes you wanna see how the main characters defeat them.
Action, drama, fantasy. They both have it. The main character's joined a group to safe the city from evil enemies. Oh, and get some tissues before watching!
These two anime both feature pointless deaths of characters who held no importance to begin with, in an attempt to be "edgy" and mature; only to end up failing miserably.
-Both are very brutal and bloody
-Both have characters that are pretty generic
-Both have TONS of action and lots of death
-Both have a medieval setting
Akame ga Kill and Attack on Titan are both popular shounen anime with a main character fighting to protect their city. They also have a lot of blood and gore along with a dark plot and character deaths.
They are both about killing, has violence, bloodshed, and they both will make you cry. SNK and Akame ga Kill are those anime which doesn't hold back. Both anime have the characters that are killed of without any hesitation no matter how much deep the connection they have with the audience, so be strong during watching it. I have 10/10 for both of them.
Both These anime have the characters that are killed of without any hesitation however deep the connection they have with the audience.
AOT and AKG are both dark fantasy action shounen that are dramatic and don't hold back on the violence of their stories.
The main difference between the 2 shows are while AOT is grand in scale with huge armies and more complex plot AGK has a more simpler plot with more colorful animation and characters.
A swift brutal truth. Akame ga Kill and Attack on Titan show no holding back to this subject, both stories present a fairly regular hero who has their views, dreams, values turned upside down by the disheartening reality that is of the world that they live in.
MCs Tatsumi and Eren then enrol in their respective affiliations, the Night Raid and Survey Crops, in order to change the world's current state, to bring above, what was once a peaceful fantasy.
Both good dark fantasies with AOT having a more military base, whilst AGK is about assassins.
Love introduced characters who develop overtime and get killed instantly? Then this show is perfect to fit your taste.
They are similar in a way, both animes have (moderate) gore in it, they are the good guys but somewhat the villains too (some people in the anime think so) and they are both very beautiful animes (AOT has some great dynamic camera movements, AGK has a very well-made art style). So I personally think that if you enjoyed any of those two, you might like the other.
Both have similar ideas on cruelty and show off how the world is cruel.
