      Spice and Wolf - A trader discovers a stow-away in his wagon following a harvest - Holo, a wolf god who's decided it's time to leave the village.
      Claymore - Female warriors battling shape-shifting demons called Yoma. To fight them, they eat the flesh of the Yoma to fuel their abilities. Only some of them have gone a bit far.
      InuYasha - A girl whose family live a shrine finds herself pulled into the well only to wind up in the past, where she meets Inuyasha, a dog half-demon boy, who was pinned to the tree with a sacred arrow by one of her ancestors.
      Code Geass - A young man, in hiding from his father, the King of Britannia, and plotting to overthrow him. Has Mecha.
      Last Exile - very political anime, lots of action.

      I agree with Spice and Wolf, Claymore, and Last Exile, but if there's any one anime to go to from GOT its Berserk. I didn't see the remake series (I heard it was bad), but the first anime was great, and the one movie I watched was really good too, so I assume all the movie remakes were good.

      Also:
      The Heroic Legend of Arslan. I firmly believe GOT could not be anime because if it was, it'd be something like Arslan--actually happy and heroic, not shit and blood and sadness. But they share a depth and complexity for people, politics, and war.
      Kingdom. Much the same as above, but focuses a lot on military strategy.
      Kaiji. A gambling show, but really dark and psychological and thrilling. Rather different style than most anime.
      The Twelve Kingdoms. Very political, realistic-feeling characters with lots of development.
      Speed Grapher. I don't remember much about it but it's action seinen and an easy entry into anime for men I think. Opening by Duran Duran is a plus.
      Black Lagoon. I don't remember much about this other than it being about modern pirates and a kickass show.

      Really, though, it's Berserk.

      I would say Berserk. I am a huge GOT fan too and I will check out these recommendations I definitely need to watch Spice and Wolf.

      I'd agree with Black Lagoon and I'd suggest Baccano! as well.
      Neither of those two are at all similar to GoT in setting, but they have really great characterisation, much like it does, whilst also sharing much of the same brutality.

      Berserk might be good if you don't mind having... 'less intricate' characters. It has a similar setting to GoT and some violence.

      Spice & Wolf is a fantastic anime with a great setting and wonderful character design... but I wouldn't suggest it based on the idea of being similar to GoT. It's just way too happy.
