Game of Thrones is already on its sixth season and we can’t get enough already. Instead of watching the same episode for a whole week, have some good old-fashioned anime instead.
We compiled a list of shows that offer everything GOT has to offer, and more. All have blood, gore, fantasy, walls, political intrigue, and a whole lot of characters dying.
It follows the story of a mercenary named Guts as he finds his path amid multiple battles between factions. A classic from the 90s with tons of action and drama, Berserk is reminiscent of the War of Five Kings with shifting alliances and tons of dead soldiers.
A show about characters killing each other over a powerful symbol. Seems familiar? Fate/Zero tells the story of seven mages and their servants fighting for the Holy Grail, an omnipotent wish-granting device. These magi will do anything to obtain the Grail and summon servants from history ranging from the good, the bad, and the worst.
Want to see your beloved characters die one by one as they fight to the bitter end? Akame Ga Kill is a story about a group of assassins fighting to overthrow a corrupt empire. If you shed tears for the Starks, you will definitely shed a tear for the members of Night Raid.
Attack on Titan should be called ‘Game of Thrones‘ in anime form with all the reference to walls, monsters beyond the wall, and oblivious people unaware of the dangers outside the wall. Attack on Titan tells the story of Eren Jaeger, a young man whose sole purpose is to take revenge on the titans, a race of humanoid giants who eat humans. After Eren prevents a town from being overrun by Titans, he discovers something big about himself, literally.
Those who fell in love with Daenerys Targaryen will surely love Arslan Senki. It tells the story of Arslan, a prince who lost his kingdom after a tragic betrayal by a general which also led to his father’s death. Join him in his quest as he gathers allies from the unlikeliest places and reconquers his empire.
These anime should be enough to cater to your addiction in Game of Thrones. They will satisfy your craving for blood, war, magic, and death. At least, until the next episode airs on HBO this Sunday.
