Synopsis

Takamine 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.

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.

Story

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 read more

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).

Story: 9/10
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 read more

Well, this anime so fun to watch and you have no idea how much Gash (Ikue Ohtani) have really superb kawaii kids voice! First time I watch Gash Bell, I was shock with gash voice. It was so funny and make me laugh when gash grumble like kids (well he is a kid). The stupid thing about gash is he like big fish call 'yellow tail', somehow he can eat that uncooked (maybe because he is a demon)!

I think the main event for this anime is more on friendship. You can win as long your friendship is strong. The characters in this anime read more

This series was one of my favorites, everytime you finish watching an episode you can't help but smile. The plot was great, you get to watch the characters really grow as people and theres always one you can relate to. Even though the moral of the story (friendship) seems sort of childish it's still one a lot of us don't know. The anime itself was hilarious, filled with pure stupidity that makes your feel all warm and happy, but there are also moments where the anime gets serious and you really get emotional about whats going on because it does a good job of making read more

Recommendations

Both protagonists in the series receive a demonic child which they have to use to defend their lives from people and other beings in order to achieve a certain goal. Gash is focused more the action and adventure genre while Beelzebub is a pure episodic comedy manga with several action-themed plots. 
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. 
Both are involved with tournament-survival game, where book owners (Gash Bell)/diary's owners (Mirai Nikki) will have to destroy each other book/diary.
The winner, which is the last one standing will became king (Gash Bell)/god (Mirai Nikki).
Mirai Nikki is darker than Gash Bell in many prospects including destroying diary will lead to death of the owner, thus owners mostly wouldn't care less to kill each other directly. While in Gash Bell, the demon of the book will return to demon world after destroying the book.  
Both series deal with protagonists who receive a supernatural kind of power. One can talk with spirits and makes one his partner, while the other gets a demonic child as his partner. A competition starts as they have to fight for their lives and to claim a title of "Shaman King" and "Demon King". Both feature a lot of fights and a series of small adventures.

 
Same theme, Sekirei is just a pervier version of Gash Bell, lol. 
In Rozen Maiden there are 7 dolls and each one must fight against each in a battle called the Alice Game. Each one is partnered up with a human so they can use the human for energy, like in Zatch Bell they use the power of the heart. They call the human Mediums, and Mediums are basically like the Book Owners. They collect each ones Rosa Mystica and the last one standing becomes Alice and is loved and cared for by Rozen (the guy who made the dolls). In Zatch Bell they each fight one other and the burn the books of each other and  read more
