Synopsis:

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!

Katanagatari

Katanagatari
  • TV (12 eps x 50 min)
  • 2010

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.

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.

Mitsudomoe

Mitsudomoe

Satoshi Yabe is the newest employee at Kamohashi Elementary School. Wide-eyed and enthusiastic, he’s thrilled to finally be fulfilling his dream of being a teacher – but little did Satoshi know that he’d be assigned to class 6-3, a group that houses none other than the violent and perverted Marui triplets! Between the girls trying to hook him up with the busty school nurse, dealing with the unfortunate consequences of a hamster named 'Titties' and other misadventures, Satoshi’s dream of an uneventful school life has come to an end!

Both these shows have strikingly similar gross-out comedy, with Mitsudomoe resting more on the perverted side; and the personalities of the characters all lend their own twist to the humor.  It keeps the show fresh and fun, much like how each personality in Gintama brought their own brand of humor to each episode.  If you're a fan of slapstick, these two cannot be missed.

Muteki Kanban Musume

Muteki Kanban Musume

Miki is a psychotic mascot, waitress and delivery girl who works at her equally as frightening mother's ramen shop. Both survivor and instigator of years of ruthless, no-holds-barred domestic violence, Miki has a capacity for destruction usually found only in people with things like "the Impaler" added to their name. Yet, she also has a kind side to her and is often found going implausible distances out of her way to rescue both proverbial and literal lost kittens, though some malignant souls might misconstrue this as merely ditching her work...

Both Muteki Kanban Musume and Gintama are pure comedies based on nothing but if you don't really mind the plot they're both so funny you wish it's never gonna end!!!

If you liked one make sure to give the other a go!!!!!

Naruto

Naruto

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.
