All Asakura wants is to graduate and become a high school teacher, but not for the reasons you’d expect: he wants to be surrounded by boobs - ample, bountiful boobs. But Asakura’s goal of mammary immersion won’t come easy, as his best friend Ishida is determined to open a flower shop with him once they graduate - that is, if they manage to graduate. Together, the duo navigates day-to-day school life with crass, whether they’re ogling their busty teacher, taking on part time jobs or dodging assassination attempts by robots.
While Gintama has more substance than Ishida To Asakura, they are very similar in that the plot is vague and, at times, ridiculous. Ishida To Asakura is what I would imagine as a concise version of Gintama with a tilt towardmindless perversion and sensuality.
These two have nothing to do with the profiles of the characters, but the characters themselves are related because they compete with each other in similar kinds of brainless activities. This is not to say I do not enjoy them, just that they are ridiculous and fun.
Space Dandy is a space hunter, someone who is paid to search for new, undiscovered alien species. It's an industry where the prize goes to the person who finds aliens the fastest. Dandy searches unknown planets for strange beings with his companions, QT the worn-out robot and Meow from Betelgeuse. Meanwhile, they're being chased by minions of the Gogol Empire, for reasons that are still a mystery.
The story is set in the Bakumatsu era, at the end of the shoguns' rule over Japan in the middle of the 19th century. The Tokugawa shogunate uses the brainwashing "Heaven's Songs" by the top idols in Shinsengumi to subjugate the country and its people. In this Japan, writing or singing any songs besides the "Heaven's Songs" is a capital offense. Ryōma Sakamoto and the other rockers rise up and change the world with rock 'n' roll for freedom and justice.
While the two have nothing in common story-wise, both Gintama and Bakumatsu Rock take place in the same era, featuring the same historical figures, spicing things up with something futuristic (electric guitars and rock music in BR, cars and electronics in Gintama).
The protagonist is an elementary student girl Kohina Ichimatsu who lives alone. One day she summons a fox spirit named Kokkuri-san by a seance game with the same name. He was first intended to possess her, but instead, he decides to manage the household like her mother. The story revolves around a little strange daily life of them with two more other animal spirits, Inugami (dog) and Shigaraki (raccoon dog).
When there's something strange in your neighborhood, who ya gonna call? No, not the Ghostbusters. Call on Panty & Stocking, the two fallen angels Heaven-sent to clear the surface world of Ghosts – creatures spawned from mortals who met gruesome deaths. At least, that's what they'd like you to think. In reality, they're gun-toting, sword-wielding femmes fatales who lay waste not only to the evil of Daten City, but to all its bachelors and candy treats too. With a healthy dollop of collateral damage and full-frontal nudity, they always manage to save the day. If they can be bothered, that is...
Both are hilarious comedy animes that will have you laughing at every episode. These two particularly take a stab at the same kind of humor. Each episode is episodic with something weird and random going on in the crazy world the characters live in, the characters do really weird and random things to either fix or ignore the situation, and weird and random characters are made specifically to be a driving point for the plot for one episode. The main characters seem to get along pretty well and the way they play off each other is always very humorous.
