They both have this crazy yet enjoyable sense of humor that just makes you laugh.

Both series take place in bizarre alternate universe late-Edo-period Japan after the arrival of aliens. Both series have random, crazy humor and very entertaining characters. Oh! Edo Rocket has more actual plot and drama though. Also both feature the talents of Kugimiya Rie (Kagura/Shunpei).

Same crazy mix of parody-comedy action with nevertheless a strong and complicated story. "Gurren" originates from super robot mecha animes, "Edo Rocket" from harem-type with this special girl that just falls on protagonist's head=) They both exploit some common themes but do it in a bit unexpected fashion.

Storywise these two anime couldn't be more different. But I find the humor and the mix between the humor and drama to be very similar.

Similar in humor and ease of enjoyment. One does not need to watch much anime to get either. Both use what's commonly known in the world, as well as their own situations/characters/circumstances for humor. Both also mix humor and drama far more successfully than most do now. Both also don't use standard anime fare for supplementary attraction(moe, excessive fanservice, annoying antics, etc) Each of their core messages are quite mysterious, both in "where they go", and what it means. And both are a little obscure. The Tatami Galaxy gets more and more intricate with it's core message. In a practical sense, Tatami's message is FAR more important and  read more

Both have a peppy, healthy boys who have a strong passion that's rivaled by few. Unfortunately, outward forces prevent them from doing as they please.... or even what's considered the norm! However.... a female visitor(for one it's an intruder) comes into their lives and eventually becomes the sole(much to both of their chagrins) reason to doing what they want to do. Obviously, this means romance. Interestingly enough, both end similar in that they're QUITE different from what the initial beginning impression would leave. And.... they're both HIGHLY satisfying, and quite fulfilling. Edo Rocket has TONS and LOADS of tasteful humor that, instead of relying on "otaku-centric" uses their  read more

Both are very funny anime. If Oh Edo Rocket was a multiverse it would be like Abenobashi. For the greatest effect start watching Azumanga Daioh, then The melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, then Lucky Star, then Kannagi(the last three are strongly connected), then go deeper in the universe of otaku with Genshiken(think of it as Lucky star after high school, at university), chill of with Sketchbook full color (similar to Azumanga Daioh), combine all of them into Pani Poni Dash, then go nuts with Abenobashi Mahou Shoutengai, and top it off with Oh Edo Rocket, and enter the long run with Gintama.

Both are probably the funniest animes ever. I have never seen more 4-th wall breaking anywhere else.
