I've watched 26 episodes of JoJo Bizarre Adventure so far they just introduced these spirits that posses you and give you mysterious powers.i enjoyed the episodes i have watched but it seems to be getting a bit repetitive and weird, Is it worth it to keep on watching?

I've gotten to watch a few episodes of Gintama but it seems to be mostly an all gag anime anime but is there any point in the story where it get serious and becomes super badass. Its a bit peculiar most shounen are usally the strong main protaganist becomes stronger over each enemy he defeats this one seem different.

Can you tell me your thoughts?! x)

They are both good shows. I assume you're on Stardust Crusaders now, and that is an entertaining arc, but it does get somewhat repetitive due to its "villain of the week" structure. The upside is that there are select fights that felt original (and weird) and they are slowly heading towards a goal after each encounter. My favorite is the next arc, Diamond is Unbreakable since its theme for that was closer to my interests.

Gintama has defined comedic and dramatic arcs (constantly switching up the two), and there you will get to see certain characters being badasses and most importantly, their abilities felt consistent. It felt like the comedic episodes helped you getting to know the characters and their interactions with each other, which helped the dramatic arc in terms upping the stakes to a more personal level. One of the things the series does well in both arc styles (if applicable) are those moments or twists that will hit you in the feels. Also, this is the only long running shounen show I've seen to completion, because I liked that much. (next to maybe DBZ. Also thinking of watching One Piece.)

ok thanks for the help .one piece is a good anime but a lot of people don't like it because the older animation for the first like 200 episodes but definitely a good watch. Is it better than hunter x hunter or naruto probably not but there's definitely a story and some cool characters.

well if you're looking for random and a plot Gintama and JoJo will bring it to you. in my opinion just keep on watching them, if you start to lose interest slack up some, if entirely interest is lost then you shouldn't force yourself to watch them. I rather like them both actually. they were the first two comedy animations that I watched, been watching them every since.

Two totally different but great shows. Watch both.

When you're in a light hearted mood go Gintama
What some hardcore action go JoJo.
