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

Gintama' Enchousen, one of the top anime on the list and there's only like 3 episodes out.. that says alot right there. to people who think gintama is overrated, try watching it. It's not bad, in fact its great. Give it a try, and this dipshit afdal is just bitching out because his favorite anime wasn't number one

For me Gintama became number 1 for this reasons: Good Story, Originality, Character Personality, Funny, and Great Action.

Story: 10
- The story for gintama is always great.. And the twist that they did where they changed the main character as Sakata Kintoki was genius.. And I love read more

Okay this is my first time writing a review. So let's give this a shot.

Story (10): Gintama does have a story, unlike most people who haven't thoroughly watched the show don't believe it has. The overall plot is about the three characters who work in an odd-jobs. Though the story is episodic at times, they will often be serious arcs that are compromised of a couple episodes. This is where the overall plot and character development most of the time happen (though sometimes episodic episodes have development to). In these you can see that Sorachi is developing towards a bigger picture. Though right now let's read more

--Sorry for my English, I'm from a non-English speaking country--

Story - Sorry, but Gintama has no story, there is no plot at all. It's been like this since the beginning, to say it can get away with that just because it has stand alone adventures is ridiculous, just look at Cowboy Bebop or Mushishi, these shows also have many stand alone adventures and yet they have a story, Gintama can get serious from time to time, but it doesn't have real character development and it has a 'story' that goes nowhere.

Art - Average, as always. Art is getting better with each new season, but it's read more

Anime: Ixion Saga DT
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.

Anime: SKET Dance
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  read more

Anime: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
Both series feature the same style of comedy. However, each episode of Danshi Koukousei is a collection of short skits, while Gintama is not.
