    Maybe Claymore? My first thought when reading/watching this was basically Claymore meets Berserk, but I'm not sure about Berserk being what you're looking for.

    Definitely Knight Run. The atmosphere of utter despair before incomprehensible enemy (which refuses to make a contact and just slaughters humanity) is unmatched there in survival/action manga IMO.

    MuvLuv series among visual novels is also a must read if you like similar atmosphere. Humanity is also on a (horribly) losing side and doesn't understand a lot about their enemy.

    Knights of Sidonia by Tsutomu Nihei (the author of Blame!) has a bit of a similar premise too

    Nihei is one of the major influences of Shingeki no Kyojin's author Isayama, especially in terms of artstyle, with the overabundance of hatching creating that very dark atmosphere

    Hakaijuu can sorta be similar. Stopped reading Terraformars as well, it was silly.

    But yeah reading the manga would do it. It's very very far ahead.
