If it weren't for two other particularly strong entries, Gifuu Doudou!!: Kanetsugu to Keiji—the double exclamation marks say it all, really—would probably be a strong contender for the most righteous show of the summer 2013 anime season. Gifuu Doudou!!'s premise is simple: Naoe Kanetsugu and Maeda Keiji, two ridiculously large and powerful "legitimate eccentrics," recount their exploits dispensing their brand of "RIGHTEOUSNESS" all over Sengoku-era Japan. It has the right attitude to make this sort of narrative funny and fun, clearly not taking itself very seriously with things like an over the top opening (entirely composed of recycled footage of course) named "SAMURAI ROCK" with read more

This ain't yo generic moeblobs with cute girls.
gifuu doudou is a tale for MEN not little kiddies looking for their shounen garbage aight?

if you are still young and try and watch this your balls are gonna drop no matter what.

to Sum of the story: You follow 2 men and their quest for RIGHTEOUSNESS. They are gonna do manly things like; Get naked, Kill people, Defend helpless virgins, drink A LOT and kill more people.

This show right here got some huge ass characters and some funky art.

From the first time you watch the Opening theme read more

Both are situated in approximately similar time period (warring states) and tackle real historical figures... on the level of characters there are a lot of eccentrics in both of them - passionatelly pursuing some ambition, also, occasional wars, political strategic interactions, communication by gestures, a lot of unspoken which can leave you confused at times and similar. Hyouge Mono has much more content quality to it, Gifuu has a bit more action and is a bit lighter storywise.

Both from the same creators. Unfortunately some people don't know true manliness. I'm a fan of Jojo's but not every manly thing is based on Jojo; it's based on Fist of the North Star. Keiji is basically the Juza version of Kenshiro, but Hokuto no Ken is just better by far.
