Despite Gintama': Enchousen being shorter than its previous seasons, it still brings the action and comedy part of the show, never leaving, but always staying one step ahead. By doing this, the emotional impact the show brings into the series in some of the small and major arcs is shown in great detail, this leaves the viewers speechless at how perfectly it's put together.

Comedy isn't that strong in series as of late, even in most of the series airing the comedy was either pretty bad or they started out great, but than ended up as failures from becoming great. Knowing when to be funny in read more

This anime is like curry. First timers will be put-off by the unorthodox taste. Only by returning for more can one begin to truly appreciate and enjoy it.

I'm a hater converted...I wanted so badly to bring this anime down because I wanted my first anime loves to be ranked higher than this anime. I originally only watched one episode when I rated this anime poorly. Now that I've taken the time to appreciate this anime, I now consider this anime a masterpiece...because only an anime master could make an anime of this caliber.

The wacky nature of this anime, the numerous amounts of cherishable characters, read more

Watch the first episode and you will see why Ixion Saga DT is like Gintama. A lot of the jokes are variations of Gintama jokes. This anime was totally inspired by Gintama. Gintama is so unique that it inevitably was going to inspire a whole new genre of anime. I think Ixion Saga DT is the first of many Gintama-genre anime to come.
Calling both of these hilarious would be an understatement. Despite a considerable difference in setting, Gintama' Enchousen and SKET Dance share a similar comedic style that could best be summed up with one word - randomness.

The very purpose of Yorozuya and Sket-Dan are fundamentally the same: they do anything for their clients. In most cases, both of them go through outrageous lengths in order to accomplish their tasks. Moreover, both groups are composed of three members who play very similar roles: a leader, a strong female, and an otaku. Their personalities are so strikingly similar that a crossover was made highlighting that very premise.

The main aspect that distinguishes both series from the rest is its unique sense of humor. Both series parody other anime series but do so in a brilliant and creative manner. If Gintama is considered the king of comedy, Sket Dance would be the prince.
