Where will you go if all your dreams have been fulfilled? That is the question that both series deal with. They don't have a serious plot, just the daily life of a man who is trying to live his life. There are battles and funny moments sometimes. Recommend to people who are looking for some funny anime to watch to add some spice to their life.

Although not exactly the same, the main characters of both stories share personality traits. Gintoki and Saitama are not overly concerned over their public image and are willing to blemish their reputations to accomplish a goal. They both also display nonchalance in extreme situations and are also the strongest fighters in their respective universes. Unlike Saitama though, Gintoki has displayed cowardice and laziness in certain situations and will avoid trouble if possible. The settings in each anime are also similar in that they contain futuristic and fantastic elements, such as the presence of aliens and the usage of advanced technologies. Each anime also approaches comedy   read more

To begin, both series are super hilarous and share the same kind of humor. Also the two series contains "serious arc" wich is freaking awesome! They even have the same kind of main character (Laziness Overload). They are very common in a good way ;) The only difference is in the universe. OPM is the super hero universe while Gintama is the Edo universe. So if you love Gintama, there is no reason to hate One Punch Man! (and vice versa)

Gintoki and Saitama have a common ideal, They fight for their own reasons and not to appease others. They are too lazy... Gintoki is lazy by birth whereas Saitama gets lazy as he lacks a serious opponent time after time. They are funny and when they get serious they'll bring devastation upon their enemies. While Gintoki (Shiroyasha) is a lazy samurai living by his own rules, Saitama is just a guy that serves as a hero for a hobby.

(Oo I actually wanted to be first to this one; I tried a while back...) But wow, this really is all about comedy, world building, and reasonable characters. The fact of the matter is we have two MC who are heroes down to their very souls but don't acknowledge it with their exterior mannerisms. The irony behind their characters and the world around them are similar and wonderfully uncanny than what we usually see. Gintama is very much amidst the top of the anime industry, and OPM will soon join it.

While their storylines are rather different, they both offer a humourous take on the shounen genre. Both main characters are hilarious and interesting. There are unique and alien-like villians (and just... characters in general) in each and both feature shounen-like battles (opm more than gintama). If you liked the humour in one of them, you'll probably like the other!

Do you want a deconstruction of typical shonen clichés? Do you want a OP main character who just don't care about his enemies' complaints or objectives? Do you want to laugh in every scene? These series are for you!

By far later episodes of One Punch Man really gave me a strong Gintama vibe. Why? * They both are about the misadventures of it's heroes (Gintama with a samurai, OPM with a tokusatsu hero) * REALLY similar parodic humor, including high levels of randomness. * In plot, both would start out without a particular story arc whatsoever until this kind of stuff would later come, while Gintama tries to be more episodic with it's own arcs. * Both also have good fight scenes. There are some dissimilarities, like OPM having less females and a highly overpowered MC, and Gintama touching a lot of references to other series and being   read more

Both of these animes are hugely funny comedies with fantasy aspects. I love both of them equally and they both have the same hero. I highly recommend both of them! :)

Yep that's right Gintama and one punch man are somewhat similar to each other Both of them are { EPIC } comedy and fighting shows Mind the brackets Epic means Epic both have characters funny and strong but in one punch man i should say super super strong and if you are thinking about comedy then think not all you have to see them especially the face of one punch man character and now about gintama it has broken 4th wall within 4th wall i mean literally it has. Thats why it is also rated the highest anime above all anime and all   read more

They both are very comedic on the ways a ‘hero’ is presented. They are also both very humourus and like to poke fun at the modern superhero stereotype. They are also both parodies. Which again reinforces there similarities.
