In Gintoki's Japan, the arrival of the various space races known collectively as the Amanto ended the era of the samurai. The Amanto's highly advanced technology resulted in total conquest and a severe economic shift. Now, former samurai such as Gintoki scrape together whatever livelihood they can. Gintoki's profession of choice is that of a yorozuya: he'll complete any job for money. However, he’s unmotivated; and spending most of the day on the couch with the latest issue of Jump and a carton of Strawberry Milk is his preferred pastime. It turns out that his new unpaid employees, Shinpachi and Kagura, are going to interfere with his pastime even more than with his "work"! Of course, none of this means he has really given up on his samurai ideologies!
With a history of leading a motorcycle gang and getting bad grades in school, why would 22 year old Onizuka ever want to become a teacher? Is it to educate young minds or spread the joy of education? Sure, if it involves being able to look up high school girls' skirts! 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.
In a time filled with wars, environmental concerns and issues, there lives a gaggle of beautiful boys that are the personification of the world's countries. Japan, England, France, Finland, Germany and the rest of the boys attend the World Conference and tackle issues like global warming with a heavy dose of fun. Through multiple world wars the gang will traverse deserts, build mecha U-boats and solve the world's problems together!
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.
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.
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.
Shows with historic thematic infused with a breeze of modern spirit. Similarities involve a lot of comedy, dialogues (read: blabbering) and awesome action guaranteeing no boredom for the viewer.
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.
