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.
At Cromartie High, it’s tough being a delinquent -- a fact that do-gooder Takashi Kamiyama intimately understands. When he’s not engaging in contests of strength and rival gang wars, Kamiyama can also be found submitting punny jokes and planning his own rise to fame within the delinquents’ ranks, and that’s just the beginning! With friends like robotic Mechazawa, a giant gorilla, a hairy man from the 80s named Freddie and a clan of delinquents with mohawks that flow in the wind, how can anyone not enjoy high school?
I'm pretty much complete flabbergasted that no one has cross recommended these shows. Genuinely entertaining slapstick comedy is a rare find these days, and both Gintama and Cromartie pull it off impeccably.
You really won't find such wonderful visual gags and deadpan punchline delivery this entertaining outside of Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker production from the 1980s.
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.
Naruto Uzumaki is a young ninja who bears a great power hidden inside him, a power that has isolated him from the rest of his village. As such, his only dream is to become the Hokage - the most powerful ninja, and leader of the village; but first he needs to graduate! With his inability to perform even the most basic ninja techniques, it seems that all Naruto has going for him is his determination to succeed no matter what. Teamed up with the genius Sasuke, book-smart Sakura, and their team leader Kakashi, Naruto embarks on his quest to become the Hokage. But with outside forces posing a threat to the entire Hidden Leaf village, Naruto discovers that he must become much stronger if he ever wants to realize his dream and protect the friendships he's forged.
Both anime are the same yet a tad different because Gintama is a parody anime and it parodies Naruto the most. Similar humor (though Gintama is WAY funnier), similar characters, even the setting is slightly similar. If you love Naruto and haven't seen Gintama yet do so immediately and vice versa.
Angels are genteel and graceful messengers from Heaven, right? Wrong! Sakura Kusakabe will create an invention that inadvertently ruins the future for womankind and thus, angels from the future have arrived to do the only reasonable thing: assassinate him! Fortunately for Sakura, one of them, Dokuro-chan, takes a liking to him but her intentions to protect him prove downright lethal. When Sakura’s not dodging her spiked bat Excalibolg, he’s fighting for his life on river escapades. And when he’s not quick enough, Dokuro-chan’s catchy incantation brings him back to life! Bludgeoning and blood splatters aside, can Dokuro-chan save the one she loves without damaging the future?
Well, i know that is weird, but think about it. Dokuro-chan is about a strong girl who always hit her partner, if we think in Gintama every character hit to the others in every episode, if we want a charecter like Dokuro we have Kagura and Otae, yes is not the same character, but they are very similar, Kagura hits everyone and Otae hits the perverts. If we think in Gintoki and Sakura they have the same problem. Gintoki suffer all hits of kagura, Otae even Shinpachi. Sakura die because Dokuro kill him without want it (the most of the time)
In conclusion, a lot of fun with a lot of violence.
