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.
if you like main characters protecting their cities from monsters then you will like this.
Attack no titan is darker and more emotional but both of them have their moments
so If you like one then you have to try the other
-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
