Before I begin, I'd like to explore why these anime series are similar to Attack on Titan:

  1. The world is divided into two species: humans and demons - where the demons are often perceived as "evil" and the humans as "good"
  2. The Main Characters in both series find themselves grappling with the complex moral implications of their respective worlds
  3. A significant character is transformed into a demon, serving as a catalyst for bridging the gap between the two species
  4. Both series convey the notion that neither side is completely good nor evil. They both are plagued with systemic issues that oppress their people
  5. This perspective invites the audience to empathize with both sides. It blurs the lines of morality and leaves the viewers questioning their own values

Black Clover

Black Clover

Black Clover is a must-watch anime series.

At the heart of this anime series is Asta, an orphan who, along with his childhood friend Yuno, grew up in an orphanage.

Despite living in a world where magic is ubiquitous and a necessity, Asta is an anomaly. He lacks any magical abilities.

Undaunted, Asta refuses to let his shortcomings hold him back and instead relies on his impressive physical strength to propel him toward his aspirations.

In contrast, Yuno is a natural-born prodigy with a remarkable talent for manipulating wind magic, making him one of the most skilled magic users in their world.

The ultimate goal for both Asta and Yuno is to become the Wizard King, a highly esteemed figure of authority in the Clover Kingdom. Despite their shared ambition, the two friends develop a good-natured rivalry.

Yuno, who possesses a natural talent for magic, acquires a rare and coveted four-leaf grimoire, which only the most gifted mages can wield. This acquisition sets him apart as a formidable competitor and propels him toward his dream of becoming the Wizard King.

Although Asta doesn't possess any magical abilities, he manages to acquire an enigmatic five-leaf grimoire that contains powerful anti-magic elf swords and a mysterious devil race member without a physical form.

To achieve their dream of becoming the Wizard King, Asta and Yuno take divergent paths and join separate Magic Knight squads.

Asta becomes a member of the unconventional Black Bulls led by the enigmatic Yami Sukehiro, where he partners with Noelle Silva. Meanwhile, Yuno is accepted into the elite Golden Dawn.

Thus begins their journey toward realizing their ambitions and securing the title of the Wizard King.

Demon Slayer

Demon Slayer

In case you haven't yet delved into the world of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, here's a brief overview.

It is set in Japan's Taishō era and the story revolves around the Demon Slayer Corps, a clandestine organization that has been waging a covert war against demons for centuries.

These demonic beings were once humans who were transformed by Muzan Kibutsuji, a powerful demon who injected them with his blood.

Bestowed with incredible strength, regeneration abilities, and a unique power called "Blood Demon Art," they feed on humans to sustain themselves.

Our main character, Tanjiro Kamado, an earnest and kind-hearted boy, earned a living by selling charcoal.

However, his life took a dramatic turn when his family was attacked and killed by a demon. The only survivor was his sister, Nezuko, but she was unfortunately turned into a demon.

Jujutsu Kaisen

Jujutsu Kaisen

Have you seen Jujutsu Kaisen or at least have you heard of it?

You may have even seen the memes floating around, but if you have not seen the series yet, here is the premise.

The story follows the journey of Yuji Itadori, a high school student from Sendai who receives a powerful message from his grandfather just before he passes away:

"Always help others" and "Die surrounded by people."

Little did Yuji know that he was about to face a dangerous challenge when his friends from the Occult Club summon Curses to their school by unsealing a rotten finger talisman.

To protect his friends, Yuji swallows the finger, becoming the host of the powerful Curse named Ryomen Sukuna.

Since Sukuna is known for his evil nature, all sorcerers must exorcise Yuji immediately. However, Megumi's teacher, Satoru Gojo, intervenes and proposes to postpone Yuji's death sentence and train him until he consumes all of Sukuna's fingers.

As cursed spirits plot an attack on the jujutsu sorcery world, the principal of the Kyoto school orders his students to assassinate Yuji during the exchange event between the Tokyo and Kyoto schools.

Despite this, some individuals, such as fellow student Nobara Kugisaki, support Gojo's proposal to keep Yuji alive and help him eliminate the Curse.

One of the highlights of Jujutsu Kaisen is its impressively developed characters, each offering a unique perspective.

From Yuji's earnest and kind-hearted personality to Gojo's enigmatic charm, each character is compelling and adds depth to the story. Additionally, the stunning art, graphics, and soundtrack are sure to captivate and amaze you.

Like the others, it is currently streaming on Crunchyroll and other sites.

Chainsaw Man

Chainsaw Man

Chainsaw Man is an anime that explores themes of grief, devil-fighting, and friendships.

Though the series has its comedic moments, it never strays too far from its serious tone, and the humour never detracts from the story's darker elements.

If you have not seen it yet, here's a quick synopsis:

This series delves into a world where humans can make contracts with Devils, granting them immense power. But this also leads to corruption and tragedy.

Additionally, Devils can become Fiends by possessing the body of a deceased human, adding to the danger and chaos of this world.

The story revolves around a young man named Denji, who works as a Devil Hunter to repay his late father's debt. However, his life takes a dramatic turn when he fuses with his pet devil, Pochita, and gains immense power.
