1. Attack on Titan

Synopsis – Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by enclosing themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of giants. Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Eren and his foster sister Mikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a super giant that appears out of thin air. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Eren vows that he will murder every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind.

Similarity – 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
