The obvious link between these series is that both spoof an aspect of feudal Japans. Shibobuden takes Ninjas and puts them down as a perverted bunch, and Jubei-chan takes Samurai and puts them down as weird old men, clinging on to past habits and customs. Both series peak in terms of being zany and crazy characters. Really, you can't go wrong with either of them.

Himitsu Himitsu says...

Jubei-chan is about Samurai and 2x2=Shinobuden is about Ninjas; different main themes, but their sense of humour is about the same. They both dwell into the origin and history of these forms, and make fun of it. I think you'll have fun with both anime. 2x2=Shinobuden is really wacky.

Dullshimmer Dullshimmer says...

The sene of humor in both of these series are of the same type. They are very absurd and often break the fourth wall by commenting that they are characters in an anime or that there are people watching. Both of these series are parodies in a way with Jubei-Chan being a parody of swordsman/samurai stories and Ninja Nonsense being well a parody of ninjas. There are two major differences between these two series I should mention though. Ninja Nonsense is much more perverted in its humor than Jubei-Chan so the content of the humor isn't always equivalent between the two series. Also Ninja Nonsense doesn't have an overarching story like Jubei-Chan. If these two aspects don't bother you then if you've watched one of these give the other a try.

Devil Hunter Yohko

Devil Hunter Yohko

Who knew coming of age could be so tough? 16 year-old Yohko Mano is your typical high-schooler dealing with a not-so-typical upbringing. Her grandmother has been training her in the martial arts and tests her skills on a regular basis. And all Yohko really cares about is a date with Hideki! Well, fickle fate intervenes and Yohko's destiny as a destroyer of demons is revealed. This entertaining romp has plenty of fanservice and action to keep the boys drooling.

Both these shows are essentially about a reluctant magical girl. Devil Hunter Yohko is slightly darker and involves monsters, while Jubei Chan is more akin to a martial arts movie/Magical Girl series. However, in both cases you almost sympathize with the heroins who just want to live normal lives.

NekoRocket NekoRocket says...

Yohko and Jubei are both faced with a destiny they can't escape... fighting a very strange assortment of characters almost daily! While Devil Hunter Yohko is a bit more ecchi (nudity) Jubei-chan has it's own set of mature humor...with a lot of focus on breasts. Each one of these is cute and action packed... in it's own way.

Worlds apart, both Kenshin and Jubei Chan do indeed portray certain aspects of Japanese culture, as well as highligting samurai action. Kenshin the quentisential over the top samurai drama, and Jubei Chan the parody magical girl samurai revival. Its all good baby.

NekoRocket NekoRocket says...

At times funny, at times deadly serious, both Jubei-chan and Rurouni Kenshin feature somewhat reluctant heroes with a cast of very unusual people.

Nohansen Nohansen says...

Jubei-chan and Lyrical Nanoha are recognized for their magical girl stylings: an unwilling female protagonist, the wise sidekick who guides her as she takes her first steps into a larger world, and a mystical artifact that's the source of the heroine's power.

But instead of being targeted to the usual demographic, these two shows seem designed for male audiences. Both series feature enough action to keep viewers interested and provide the necessary back-story for enjoying their respective sequels.

Hethran Hethran says...

Jubei-chan and Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha are clearly both magical girl series. However, they are both unusual in that they aren't necessarily aimed at a female audience, as are most magical girl series. In addition, they both have superb action sequences and a protagonist who manages to reach out to many of her foes and show them the error of their ways.

The animation style in Jubei-chan and Animation Runner Kuromi are quite similar: characters become very two diminsional caricatures of themselves when put into stressful situations. The off-the-wall humor and endearing protagonist make each one a worthwhile watch.
