Anime Like Attack on Titan
Much like the series’ titular monsters, Attack on Titan is a force to be reckoned with in anime. A runaway hit back when it first premiered in 2013, the show offered viewers a fresh take on a post-apocalyptic world where humans aren’t at the top of the food chain, yet still struggle for their lives and freedom. It has since gained praise for the shift in tone in its second season and has fans excited to see how it will change come the third season this summer. With the wait, however, comes a need to fill the void left by its absence, and we’ve got you covered with five anime to watch if you’re looking for something similar.
Berserk is one of the most famous dark fantasy series in anime, and for good reason. Set in a medieval world of warring kingdoms and hidden magics, the story centers around the black swordsman Guts as he searches for revenge against his former comrade Griffith. Along the way, he meets a variety of characters with their own drives and flaws, each putting a twist on traditional character tropes and altering Guts’ view of the world. It may be a bit disorientating jumping from one hour to the next – the first series premiered in 1997 with 2D animation, while the most recent continuation was in 2017 with 3D animation – but the story and character interactions will make the whiplash more than worth it.
