This is my review for Gintama': Enchousen. I'd appreciate if you could read all of it and I would welcome any and all feedback on my MAL profile.

Gintama': Enchousen (I'll refer to it as just Enchousen, from now) is the third season of the Gintama series. The previous two seasons, Gintama and Gintama', are both very enjoyable, as both had numerous entertaining story arcs and memorable characters. So naturally Enchousen had a lot to live up to and, from the score I've given, you can tell that it shattered my expectations (and then some).

I won't bother with the general backstory of Gintama since it read more

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 cherishable characters, the remarkably 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

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.
Both gag anime both have similar art style
Both series feature the same style of comedy. However, each episode of Danshi Koukousei is a collection of short skits, while Gintama is not.
