SynopsisTakamine Kiyomaro, a depressed don't-care-about-the-world guy, was suddenly given a little demon named Gash Bell to take care of. Little does he know that Gash is embroiled into an intense fight to see who is the ruler of the demon world. All of the demons have to pick a master on Earth and duke it out with other demons until one survives. Needless to say, Kiyomaro becomes Gash's master, and through their many battles, Kiyomaro learns the importance of friendship and courage.

Characters & Voice Actors
If you really want to have fun then this is the right one for you. However, there are parts where you wanna cry over the tragics that happen in this story.
The show is extremely good however, there are parts when I wanted to stop watching since it got boring or the fillers where plain annoying. That is why overall I gave it a nine.
Basically it is about a teenage boy who receives a demon from his father in order to make friends. Kiyo is pulled into crazy adventures with his friends, trying to save the demon world. There are many challenges and many issues they have to face, however the deal with problems with their friends, Umagon, Tio, and Kanchome. The plot was very intriguing but the fillers would ruin the plot line time to time.
The characters each have their own story that they have to face, and the hardships pull them down. But when they learn about friendship, and courage, it makes you want to jump up and cheer them on. The teach us in different ways the effects of violence, friendship, and loss through their own eyes. They each stick to their portrayed character extremely well, and they were well constructed.
I loved this anime overall even all the bad points, and I couldn't wait for the next episode to follow. I believe that they are many people who would enjoy this type of anime.
Konjiki no Gash Bell was a very interesting anime in its own ways. There are many times of extreme laughter, as well as times when tears will fall. The storyline was pretty well-written and the characters were unique. Overall, I could only give it a 9/10 because many episodes were boring fillers (don't get me wrong, some fillers were actually pretty funny).
The story is a 9 because I've never seen one like it before. There are some pretty sudden twists in the story that kept it exciting and fun to watch. The fillers could be funny, but they were mostly pretty boring. Also, the ending was a bit obvious, so that's why I gave it only a 9.
I don't usually criticize art, but if I had to score it, it would definitely be 9. The reason being that for most of the characters, you definitely tell them apart. However, some characters are drawn poorly or they look unnatural so the final score is a 9.
The sound for this anime was great. There was pretty good music overall and the character's voices matched the character's personality. The quality was not bad and the music was all very original, however the music could get a little repetitive at times.
As stated before, all the characters are unique and have special personalities. I think that they are all funny and a key part to the anime. There was definitely a lot of thought put into each individual character. Some are a little annoying or unnecessary, though.
Unfortunately, I could only give an 8 for my overall enjoyment because the fillers became very boring and tiring to watch. They were unnecessary sometimes and very repetitive. The action-packed episodes were great though, and some fillers were making me laugh out loud, literally.
For the above reasons, I gave this anime an overall rating of 9/10. It was a very special anime to me and the ending was pretty exciting. The only part I really don't like is the ending that just leaves you hanging. Even so, I enjoyed this very much and I'm glad I decided to watch it. read more
Both of these are fighting anime. But they share a similar since of humor, and animation style.
Ueki - is a battle anime where the winner's "god candidate" (or coach) becomes god.
Zatch Bell - is a battle anime where the winner's doll becomes king.
Gash deals with a protagonist who receives a little kid while in Ueki the protagonist receives supernatural powers but both series deal with the same kind of action-packed emotional battles and hilarious comedic moments throughout the series. Both's antagonists are also similar in almost every kind of way.
- Both are non-human partnered with humans.
- Both are about friendship and to protect.
- Both are about fighting to become King(Gash Bell) or God (Law of Ueki).
Although for The Law of Ueki, it's only 1 side fights (the humans). Gash Bell is both the human and demon fight together.
Gash Bell is a much better series than Law of Ueki. But Gash Bell anime ended differently than manga, so it's best if you read the manga after anime!
Both involve battles in which one person is picked by a superior entity to be their partner in a battle, in which the last one standing obtains a grand prize in both shows becoming a leader of a group.
gash bell and ueki possess the same type of humor and presents many unique powers incorporated within their battles. for example ueki has the power to turn garbage into trees (promotes recycling lol). both are great (I enjoyed ueki a bit more) and recommend both.
