- Bright colours and simple lines

- both anime are a comedic parody.
- 4th wall breaking
There is a similarity in the type of comedy as well as the type of lead character. Both leads are powerful characters who desires a simple life.
-Both main characters, Gintoki and Saiki, love eating sweets and reading Shounen manga. They're also strong (though Saiki's power is incomparable).
-Both shows have great comedy.
-Both referenced each other at some point.
Both very funny comedy shows that break the 4th wall occasionally. Similar style protagonist and jokes.
both have the same Scriptwriter and they both have pretty much the same kind of humor ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Besides total differents background histories, both has the same kind of non-sense humor
Both are very funny, with the same humor
Both are really funny, if you liked Gintama you will for sure like Saiki Kusuo
same sense of humour, shouldn't miss out these two anime series.
Both shows have similar fast-paced comedy combined with exaggerated facial expressions and loud atmosphere's. Both shows also break the fourth wall from time to time, as well as having pieces of more serious moments in between
Very powerful and cool protagonists with a knack for sweets that just try to live their everyday lives. Many stupid jokes that are funny because they're repetitive. Single and multi-episode arcs.
The protagonists have a lot in common: both are lazy but powerful, compelling, have a sweet tooth, and are absolute sadists (who doesn't love sadists :D). The characters are all unique and lovable and their traits are what make the silly gags/jokes so great and hilarious. The humor is pretty alike (though Gintama has more, well, "unsuitable for children" jokes) and will for sure make you cry with laughter at times :) If you liked the humor in Gintama, you'll most probably like Saiki Kusuo.
The two of them make really good comedies and are really good parodies of the genre.
