In a bizarre fantasy world, students known as meisters are trained at the illustrious Shinigami Weapon Meister University; but the tools they wield are no ordinary weapons! Each meister is paired with a human-like being who can transform into a weapon at will; and after defeating a pre-kishin - a human whose soul has darkened - the weapon eats the soul within it. A meister's ultimate goal is to collect ninety-nine pre-kishin souls and one of a witch so that his or her partner will become an all-powerful Death Scythe. Maka and her partner Soul Eater; Assassin Black Star and his partner Demon Blade Tsubaki; and Shinigami's son Death the Kid and his partners the Demon Twin Pistol Thompson Sisters each vie for their ultimate goal, but plenty of challenges and adventures lie in their way!
Both shows are very amusing and worthwhile. A huge cast of interesting & memorable characters, action and lots of humor makes these series very similar to each other. So if you liked the action/comedy ratio of one series, you will surely enjoy the other as much. Be sure to check it out!
In the wake of a rebellion that shook Japan twenty years prior, Togame Hida, general director and strategist for the army, seeks to obtain the 12 "deviant blades" created by master swordsmith Shikizaki Kiki to help add stability and security to the Bakufu government. To aid in this endeavor, she looks to enlist the help of Yasuri Mutsune, head of the Kyotou-ryu school and hero of the rebellion. But when she arrives on the island where he lives in exile, she finds him dead, succeeded by his skilled yet slightly daft son Shichika. Undeterred, the two set off from the island in search of the swords armed only with Togami's sharp strategic mind and Shichika's powerful, swordless Kyotou-ryu.

Both Gintama and Azazel-san are frantically placed gag comedies. They both include parodies and have a lot of crude humor. Azazel-san's short episodes focus almost entirely on this crude type of humor but Gintama is a much larger show and have a broader sense of humor overall. If you find the crude humor in one appealing then you should enjoy both shows.
Second season of Tono to Issho.
Both of these shows are gag style comedies that mock the traditonal samurai values. They both love to use puns and wordplay to create a lot of their humor. Most people think of more serious themes when they think of feudal Japan so both these shows are kind of surprising in the light hearted approach they take to the topic. If the puns and word play in Gintama amuse you them you should definately check out Tono to Isso.

But when an experiment goes awry the gang discovers that the Phone Microwave can also send text messages to the past. And what's more, the words they send can affect the flow of time and have unforeseen, far-reaching consequences...
