Ah this picture sure brings back memories, it was fun photoshopping it =)

Yeah these forums so need this thread. Gintama is hilarious. Gintama is great. Gintama is Gintama. Watch it. Read it. Laugh with it. Be moved by it. Be happy. Grow some kintama.

Seriously one of the best shows.

The anime was put on hold at episode 201, but it seems like it's returning in 2011. The last episode I watched was 124, and that was at the end of last year, I once again have the craving for Gintama.

I said this in the One Piece thread:

The Hijikata/Okita relationship in Gintama is great, but I swear, every time I think about the Hijikata/Okita relationship, I can't help but think retsgip/Darkshaunz (it was probably partly due to a comment Shaunz made in the Evangelion thread and you actually having the Hijikata avatar, though now it's gone =P). It's especially amusing when you tease Shaunz about the 'Rukia dying' comments =P, even more amusing when Arl joins in.

And this is why I love the Hijikata/Okita relationship:


Other great and hilarious videos:

I know most of the episodes by heart now. It's the one anime I just put on in the background while I eat or take naps or whatever. It's good for short laughs but also has it's BADASS moments where you jump out of your chair spilling beer everywhere, woooping and hollering with joy. The writers know how to fucking write and that's all you really need to know to be convinced that it's a good show.

I'm sold. Will add this to my semi-large list of d/l's.

If you don't feel like downloading an entire package of like 15 gigs. I think the first 26 episodes is season 1 which will take you through some pretty funny shit.

Gintama has been a favourite of Retsgip-sempai and mine for a while now.

The fact that you love it as well just means you have great taste in Shounen, Syphin.

Hahah yeah, when I started watching it in 2007, I immediately fell in love with it. It's so entertaining =).

I love how the writers are able to bring out the hilarity in the show and at the same time bring through some morals or serious scenes (some more than others). And Gintama is one of those shows that you can re-watch and re-watch and not get bored =P.

everytime i hear gin-san's voice my dick explodes in ecstasy. I loved him when he did Kyon in Suzumiya Haruhi, but I find that Gin-san is way more suited for his ad-lib dialog and quirky humor style. I hear that a lot of what happens in the show is ad-libbed to fill up space and to just give the anime a more natural feeling.

I never read the manga so I can't say how close they are to eachother, but there's NO WAY there's that much dialog in the manga. A lot of it has to be made up by the actors.

I think even non-anime viewers might enjoy Gintama. It's probably the equivalent of like family guy in japan. It's one of the few successful shows in japan that doesn't have a connecting story episode to episode. Although random, it's still important to watch the episodes in a row because of character introductions and random events that may be mentioned later on in the story.

For example, the Hedoro episode is insanely funny. He appears randomly throughout the rest of the story but his appearances won't have the same comedic flare without watching his intro episode.
