When one considers Amazon Prime, they might not immediately think about anime. They may dream about free two-day shipping, or the live-action TV shows they can watch like Downton Abbey and Doctor Who. However, Amazon Prime actually has a lot to offer in the anime department, including plenty of shows that can't be found anywhere else, even on Crunchyroll.
The best anime on Amazon Prime includes shows like Inuyashiki, in which an elderly man with cancer is transformed against his will into an insanely powerful robot, and Wotakoi, which follows two anime fans falling in love. There's clearly something to suit everyone's tastes, from old-school fans to new devotees.

Though it isn't nearly as popular as Attack on Titan, Kabaneri Of The Iron Fortress – which was also produced by Wit Studio – has a lot in common with the story of Eren Jaeger and the Survey Corps.
Rather than walling themselves off to escape man-eating Titans, the cast of Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress are attempting to evade Kabane, equally terrifying flesh-hungry creatures who can't be defeated unless their iron-coated hearts are pierced. If someone is looking for a show with a similar feel to AoT, this might be the perfect series for them.
