This is an idea that just came to me 2 minute’s ago while trying to fall asleep. No, I’m not comparing Shinsekai Yori to Shingeki, just drawing parallel’s.
If you are not aware, Shingeki no Kyojin is “Attack on Titan”. I’ll just infer you’ve heard of it by now (WHO HASN’T). If not look it up on MAL.
If you didn’t know, Shinsekai Yori was an anime that came out during the Fall 2012 Anime Season. Having 2 part’s, it ran until the ending of March. Shinsekai Yori was set in a dystopian world in 3000, 1000 years after our current time. People have psychokinesis – they can control thing’s with their mind.
Basically some parallel’s or similarity’s I came up with:
- Both set in a dystopian type world
- Both occur in a primitive-like era
- Both society’s hold secrets
- Both society’s have government’s aiming to protect their town’s in crude way’s
- Both society’s are stuck inside a cage-like area
- Both world’s contain abnormal creature’s
- Both stories solve the mystery’s of their world and face the hardships of their society
- Both stories have wars against “human like creatures”
I could go on, but then I’d be drawing into spoiler territory. I’d rather not go there.
Tell me what you think! Is Shingeki no Kyojin similar to Shinsekai Yori?
I’d recommend watching Shinsekai Yori if your into mystery or killing (so if your liking Shingeki; also FYI it’s a bit slower, but still adapts the source material smoothly)
(Also I’m aware alot of shows are like these too. I chose Shinsekai Yori for the fact that it just finished airing).
