Gintama

Gintama

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!

Gintama is far more crazy, but both it and Hoozuki no Reitetsu share a similar style of comedy. They're random, fun, and overall just really silly. Gintama can get a little serious and even sad at times while Hoozuki shows no signs of that, but if you're looking for some good comedy and nonsense, you may want to look here.

Very similar style, animation and humor. Even the main protaginist is very similar to gintoki with a perpetual deadpan expression.

They say civil service is hell, but in Japan Hell is a lot like civil service. Their approach to comedy is very different, but ServantxService and Hoozuki no Reitetsu are both shows about work life in an administrative office.

Both episodic and focuses on supernatural themes. I also thought the main characters, and even some side characters, were refreshing in both of these anime, hard working and easily stressed kokkuri to hard working and strict hozuki, overall enjoyable to watch. 

Differences would be that Hoozuki no reitetsu took place in mainly non-existent, (or at least as far a we know) places, while though still unrealistic, Gugure was on earth, in Japan. Also, while Gugure is about the daily life and various fetishes of the characters, Hoozuki is more about daily life in the underworld when you work there.

I both found these to be enjoyable comedies (comedy ONLY) that offered some dark humor, and cute characters, with ears, tails, and horns!

Although there isn't to much romance in Hoozuki no Reitetsu, there is a similarity with Noragami in the gods and the underworld theme. Recommend both for the comedy and the for some light action.
