Gotta love the slapstick comedy. ^_^ One Piece has more of a story whereas Gintama is just comedic, but both very funny and enjoyable.
both main character are very carefree but when serious they are extremely strong.
unlike naruto or some other main stream or so, gintama and one piece doesn't have a side talk/story since no one really like it and get on with the main point. although gintama doesn't really have a main point to the story besides the comedy and fighting that randomly occurs
One piece by story and funny characters similar to gintama TV series but it will never be Gintama :)
They both have similar storytelling methods. Both animes hardly take themselves seriously and crack joke after joke, but they have serious moments where the viewer can really connect to the characters.
Both of them, are the #1 Shounen Manga, and the most entertaining animes, ever both have an amazing willpower,if you are a one piece fan boy, try Gintama
Both are long series
Both are comedies
Both have intense action
Both have a lot of meaningful stories
and both have a lot of deep stories and plot
-Similar comedic style, though obviously Gintama focuses more on it
-Both have characters that make the large amount of episodes worth it
-Both dwell into the themes of 'protecting your nakama' more naturally than other shonen
Sure... there's a large difference, but both are on the masterpiece level both are very comedic and there is action in both animes .
Do know that the first Episodes might be slow or average for many people. So it could be for you as well.
But it will improve a lot afterwards.
The humor in both of these anime is amazing. Main characters are both easy-going, but very serious when they need to be. Both shows have a great variety of interesting characters with different powers. Villains are very developed and some make a return later in the series.
Its long, funny, has a well thought out cast, although nothing can really be similar to one piece, this is another good and long show that you can watch without having any boredom, lots of good fights, comedy and hype surrounding the anime.
Has good action and a large yet unique cast of characters. These anime's also share a similar balance of action/story/comedy.
Now I watched Gintama first but because of Gintama I decided to check out One Piece this year and so should you *cough.. (read the digital colored version of the manga) because it has obviously better pacing and stunning visuals.
One piece has humor so does gintama
The whole aspect of nakama and crewmates ride and die for your family which is always welcomed
The world building and how everyone some how is connected is sick I love this aspect with both shows bringing characters back from the past. Gintama is over however, I haven't seen The Final movie YET but even without seeing it I'm over
Both of them are on of the best anime from shounen genre in which first few episodes are focused on introduction of the main cast of series and later evolve into an amazing storyline with unforgettable action and comedy scenes throughout the series.
