1. Both have strong character stories 2. both have a sense of moving forward 3. both have great animation Overall there are a lot of similarities with the story line, being trapped (with giant monsters) striving to achieve something greater for the whole race. Both shows are very uplifting and fun to watch.

Humans live trapped in a secluded area in fear of giant monsters. Brave souls, in both anime, wish to venture out into the outside.

While the style of Gurren Lagann is completely different from that of Shingeki no Kyojin, I couldn't help but be reminded of Gurren Lagann while watching this series. In both series, the main characters are attempting to overthrow a seemingly impossible force and escape from an enclosed environment in order to explore the outside world. Also, both animes have an overly enthusiastic main character, a "sidekick" to the main character who appears to be nothing but a crybaby, and a bad-ass female character. Despite the plot and character similarities though, the two anime are very different. Shingeki no Kyojin is FAR more serious than   read more

SnK and TTGL both have a certain style of art that are very particular. Both focus mainly on two guys and a girl, with other characters coming in from time to time. The main character will sometimes turn into your typical shounen fighter beast, but that's ok because they're both epic nonetheless. From my experience, the goosebumps they give make me watch certain episodes again and again.

Mankind is stuck within a certain place (for Shingeki in walls and Gurren Lagann in caves). In both, they fight the entities that hold them there.

Both anime deal with the human condition being slowly crushed under the weight of an enormous threat that wages genocide on them seemingly without reason. TTGL however is much less visceral and more lighthearted although possessing just as much testosterone-filled action and determination to succeed against all odds. TTGL is also a deconstruction of the mecha genre and anime in general. It is a semi-parody(in classic Gainax style) but also includes a fair amount of drama, good characters and serious plot. The war presented in TTGL does have its deeper moments, and great twists brought about by the characters and their reactions to the escalating challenges   read more

Both series involve a story where the characters are enclosed within some sort of barrier as there are potential threats that reside outside of that barrier. The main protagonists of both series have big dreams to travel outside their enclosed realm and adventure out into the unknown. Both series involve over the top battles with beautifully animated action scenes. Also, there are many epic scenes that showcase over the top drama and tension. Both series involve a vast array of interesting characters. However, because of the imminent dangers that they must face, you don't know which characters will survive until the end.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann involves being locked inside an underground city and battling robots, which is very similar to Shingeki no Kyojin, where they are surrounded by walls and battle titans.

Sort of post-apocalyptic and focuses on a young protagonist as you see them grow up and go through different things.

Society living enclosed from the outside world and basically both MCs wanna go see the outside world which is nothing that they expected it to be. Many challenges face their way as they try their best to eradicate all their enemies that face their way and reclaim the world for human kind
