Lucky Star

Lucky Star

In present day Japan, the life of a school girl is never dull. The easily-bored Konata never finds time to study because of her otaku habits, which frustrates hard-working Kagami to no end. On the other hand, laid-back Tsukasa always manages to go with the flow, while Miyuki is concerned with keeping her status as resident know-it-all. Join these four girls as they muse and meander their way through everyday events such as eating chocolate cones, doing homework, gaming, and trips to the beach galore.

Now this might sound crazy, but I actually recommend you viewers of Gintama to go watch Lucky Star. First of all, both shows are outrageous comedies with pop-culture references (Lucky Star is covered almost head-to-toe with references and cameos). However, both shows have their own unique style (Gintama is a fish-out-of-water comedy while Lucky Star is all slice-of-life), yet both shows are still side-holding comedies.

Trigun

Trigun

“Vash, the Stampede” - worth 60 billion dollars to the one who can turn him in. Bounty hunters everywhere are on the lookout for this legendary gunman, not to mention insurance agents Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who are tasked with preventing any potential damage that this Vash can cause. But with 60 billion on his head, Vash is not an easy man to find.

Trigun and Gintama are rather different kinds of anime. Whilst Gintama focuses on the humor aspect, Trigun is more mixed between humor drama and action. But the main reason I recommend watching Trigun if you liked gintama is beacuse the main characters are rather alike, in my oppinion. Both are lazy and goofy on the outside while they have a fierce tiger and a romantic personality inside.

NieA Under 7

NieA Under 7

In the future, aliens coexist freely with mankind on Earth. One such alien is NieA, a lazy yet spirited girl who wastes away her days while living with the studious Mayuko. And life isn't easy... Mayuko is always short on food money, the spa where she works is about to go bankrupt and Mayuko's alien-crazy friend Chiaki is obsessed with NieA.

 Gintama and NieA Under Seven are offbeat comedies about aliens that move to Japan and the goofy situations that arise from this interaction between these newcomers and humans. Veering very often to becoming nonsensical, these anime mix sci-fi elements with a kind of humour that thrives on characters wrecking havoc in the most chaotic ways. The result are parodies that may not be for everyone but that are likely to appeal to the same audience.

Samurai 7

Samurai 7

In an age when samurai enhanced their bodies mechanically, a great war broke out. After the war's end, these "Bandits" (having become mere robbers) have lost their samurai code and now rob villages for their rice and women. The peasants of Kanna Village are filled with despair and agree to hire some samurai to retaliate, but with only rice in their food stores and no money to offer, it seems that time is running out. Now, the villagers must set out to look for samurai willing to accept such a deal -- but are there still such men that abide by the samurai code, and protect the weak?

Samurai 7 and Gintama may not seem like similar anime, but they are, in fact. Both have samurai that want to fight for the greater good; although, in Gintama, a certain samurai acts a bit silly... In both, there was a war that occured in the past, and because of this, advanced technology has come to both animes.

Gokudo

Gokudo

Gokudo is an adventurer who lies, cheats, and steals to get exactly what he wants, until he steals a magic sword. After a comedic lesson in humility and the prospect of riches and women, he embarks on a quest to save the world of magic. Travelling with the slime-ball Gokudo are royalty, fantastic creatures, and even gods.

If you really love Gintama I bet you'll like Gokudo. Both shows have what we should call an anti-hero. Both main heroes are funny, they like money and they care a lot about their selves.

They both have a group which encounters funny situations. If I should describe Gokudo compared to Gintoki it would be; a characters "worse" than Gintoki "voiced by" Katsura.

Give it a try.
