Rather than breaking the fourth wall, these shows don't even have that freaking wall. The contant spewing of self abusive and real life referencing jokes is plenty in either of these shows. They are both extreme comedies with a very awesome cast and hardly any primary followed plot. If you liked one you would surely like the other!

Watch as this would-be educator uses his own life lessons and unconstituted methods as a means to control a delinquent class of students -- students who certainly aren't as happy to have him as a teacher as he is happy to be teaching...
Both shows have a really lazy, lax, and irresponsible male protagonist that likes to screw around most of the time, but actually has a lot of talent and skill to get things done.Whereas Gintama has an obvious story to it, GTO is more episodal with no technical story to speak of. But they are both very funny shows and you will definitely enjoy one if you saw the other.

Although Gintama and Hetalia don't seem to have a similar plot but it has some thing in common. Both animes' do parodies on something. Also, Gintama and APH has some similar characters. Both comedies can have a serious side and that's what makes them similar to each other.
