-Both MC's have similar motives for fighting.
I think if you enjoyed one, you would enjoy the other.
Both anime feature a good amount of violence and disturbing imagery as well as a lot of themes about humanity and the characters fighting for it. They intrigue you by making you want to find out more about the monsters they star and then just when you think that you've figured it out they flip it on its head and change how the monsters can and/or do act. The level of threat that both anime manage to build is very real and the when the intense scenes come, BOY are they intense. Neither show holds back on what they will and won't throw at
Both anime involve powerful alien-like creatures that have a directive to kill humans. MC can use these powers to fight back. The moral dilemma "am i turning into a monster" is very present in too.
Gory brutal action with a fine dramatic story in a different setting.
Both focus on the conflict between humans and some kind of 'other' being with an underlining exploration of what it means to be human. Gritty art in both with some gore.
Both have leads that have the same powers/abilities as the enemy
Both leads become more powerful after being in the verge of death
Both are horrifying and creepy
Both have leads fighting to save humanity from a mysterious enemy
Both have enemies that eat humans for no reason
Kiseijuu like shingeki no kyojin are beautiful done anime with heartwarming scenes and memorable characters that you will remember and grow to love these are truly one of the best anime I have ever seen
In both anime, a dangerous creature threatens humanity and the main character somehow gets hold or becomes a part of the group that threatens humanity however with his naive rightousness and sense of justice, he finds a way to use the creature to fight it’s own kind.
I feel like attack on titan is a shounen take on Parasyte, or vice-versa, so if you'd like to see a more seinen approach to a monster/ action/ thriller series, then Parasyte is a must watch.
They both tackle the core concept of, "what makes someone a monster" and if you enjoy that psychological aspect of attack on titan, and how that moves Erens character and shapes his development, I can garantee that you will like Parasyte, as this concept is the key theme used to show how most of the characters develop in parasyte.
