Where were you when Sunrise saved Christmas?
Discuss what arcs will be adapted and how long the anime might be. ALSO BD-BOX TORRENT IS OUT. REWATCH THE GREATNESS FROM THE BEGINNING. http://www.nyaa.se/?page=view&tid=637243
While you're at it, get yourself a goddamn glass of Strawberry Milk too!
Don't lie. You cried like a bitch when you heard this song.
I choked up like a bitch just now, won't lie. You just had to link that song, didn't you.
I'm only pissed off that they never really released the FULL soundtrack. That one song that tends to play during madao or Santa moments with the accordeon and shit. I need it. And also one that plays during parties and shit like the first time they went with Sakamoto to a bar.
Still, can't wait for the new soundtracks. Based Audio Highs.
Nigga please this is the best OST
actually there's a torrent of all the bonus cds that came in the bd. It's possible there's a complete OST in there. Haven't looked through it myself.
If you're a real fan of gintama, you'll rewatch gintama starting from episode 1, just to get a feel for, and appreciate the - starting point. The first episodes that aired, although may be a bit controversial, are also what made gintama what it is today.
Rewatch the first couple episodes, trust me, it's worth it.
Damn, I was looking forward to picking this show up and watching it the first time. now I don't even have a goddamn Laptop. Do I have to stream now?
>Manchildren obsessed with moeshit over classic shonen sitcoms seeing MAL and tumblr boogiemen in every corner?
2014 really was a shit year. There is no tumblr boogieman and there is such a thing as moeshit. Not all moe is shit but like anything else, there are shit moe series. If I see shonen shit, I call it shonenshit but not all series aimed at 13-18 year old males are shit.
I know CR used 4kids dialog a couple times for OP. ie; Buggy Ball/Buggy Bomb, Berries/Beli.
Gintama never saw Western popularity because even official subtitles needed to break the jokes down. It's like translating Arrested Development into Japanese.
The early seasons are being improved like that? Do you think that someone will add soft fansubs, or that we'll just have to use CR's files?
And then they make another fake movie trailer that gets made into a real one, and it turns out it was the final movie until the next movie. Because this is Gintama and they've had fake final episodes like 4 times now.
So what's the best option for watching this?
Wait for someone to sub it? Extract the subs from somewhere else and if so, who? The first lot of episode I own are AVI so that won't work.
Not him but I also enjoy the manga more. Some jokes just don't translate well into animation and the tsukkomi feels somewhat awkward with the voice acting. The anime has awesome music and action though, but action is only secondary in Gintama.
Also the manga
has a god tier localization in my country
No, what will happen is you'll hear that iconic lazy mans music and see gintoki's silver hair and nothing else as he walks down the street, and then it'll zoom out to him picking his nose, and then whatever else happens after. You watch, it'll happen,I swear
Don't lie to me anon
Serious arc = four deva
Funny arc = Waifu tournament
I haven't seen or read it yet, but I'm starting it as my first new show of 2015. I just hope it's at least half as funny as all these out-of-context screenshots I see from it.
That's from the Jump Festa 2005 OVA. It was literally the first animated thing of Gintama that came out. It's a solid 30 minutes of craziness that tells you what Gintama is about. I'd recommend you start there.
>New season of Gintama literally announced
>45 unique posters
I didn't know /a/ had such shit taste. Well that's not bad, I'll let them enjoy their moeshit while I enjoy myself crying from laughter
That track title gets me every time.
This is >>118691002 what you get if faggots can't make threads about their interests on their main board. /v/ is literally spilling over fucking /a/. ANd that is all thanks to mods.
Its time for

Shogun Assassination > Courtesan of the Nation > Four Devas
Afro > Confessional > Love Plus parody
>Santa arc that low
Why nigga, do you hate Christmas?
>Shounenshit is unintentional comedy
>Gintama is a parody of shounenshit
>Parody of unintentional comedy
How low can you get? It's like laughing to a mentally retarded person. Only 12 year olds would find that funny, which is probably not that big of a stretch considering the fanbase of this garbage.
If you wanted to prove that you never watched an episode or read a chapter of Gintama, good job, you did it.
A very little part of Gintama's comedy is actually parody of other shounens, for the bigger part it's original humour
That's a really interesting opinion you got there. Too bad it's a shit opinion
>on par with Haruhi
What was wrong with it? I mean it took forever, but it finally explained Shouyou and we got some Zenzou action, Okita fighting Kamui, and that awesome scene of Takasugi taking Oboro's eye.
>it took forever
Pretty much this.
Also, no change in status quo whatsoever.
You don't pull off an arc like that with all significant factors involved and then end it with a fizzle, for fucks sakes.
Fucking manga equivalent of blueballs right there.
>no change in status quo
What are you talking about? The Tendosu revealed themselves and made Nobu Nobu the official emperor, and now Shige Shige and the Shinsengumi are essentially a resistance. Plus Takasugi and Gin might be allies or some shit now.
>no change in status quo whatsoever.
Shogun, Shinsengumi including Matsudaira, ninjas are now insurgents, Takasugi is a potential ally against Tendoshu and so in consequence is Mimawarigumi, Nobume was a student of Shoyo making her an important character
>no change in status quo
ShigeShige lost his position as Shogun. NobuNobu is crowned as the current official Edo's Shogun by the Emperor. You could at least say there's no major death.
They can't animate the rest of SD fast enough
>There will never be a continuation of the Sket Dance anime
At least the manga scans are almost done.
SEEN NO KAAZEE NIIII
No, unlike what many seems to believe, they're very different series. Not weird at all to like one but dislike another. I think they're both great but for completely different reasons.
Which non-adapted arc is /a/ more excited for? I can't decide between the Time Stop arc or Gender Bender arc
>Sugita might die before the anime airs
The thing i think is bestabout this is definitely the OSTs, seriously this anime gets way better music then it has any right to get, and usually gets better music the more real shit gets.
Since the skipped chapter 312 is now animated and bundled with a volume release, they can continue from 411 as intended (Begiramma Summer) or skip to 412 with Tama's confessional arc. That way all Gintama will continue to be fully adapted into anime
>yfw CR used DORK (Dumb Old Retarded Kook) as MADAO, originally
They also translate "Dondake!" as "Holy cow!"
>Hijikata Gintoki switch.
It's been years since I read Gintama but I was under the impression that those two barely even hung out together anymore or were even seen in the same story anymore.
I guess Hideaki Sorachi is keeping that fujoshi fodder alive then?
It's funny, we watch the entertainment they produce and often believe that; what we find good, is good universally.
Yet when the japs watch american made movies, ironically, what THEY find good, is what we often find bad. It's kinda like a vice-versa thing where we each think one another has shit taste, and that we can pick out the better shows from each others country more often than they themselves can, yet the shows our own country produces are often thought of as bad by ourselves.
Not that anon, but no, there's really not.
1.) Torrent it. Bakabt, TokyoT, Nyaa
2.) Stream it. Crunchyroll, Animenova.tv, Animedreaming.tv
3.) Buy it legitimately?
As for #3, Pretty sure that if you were to buy the BDs/DVD sets, that you'd only get subtitles after a certain point. Japan doesn't give a fuck about english speaking audiences, so they rarely include subtitle options. The way that works is a company buys limited rights to it, and will subtitle it or dub over it and re-release it, so you'd have to find a release done from an american company that includes subtitles option.
But even then, you may do that only to come to find out that there's only subs up to like, episode 160 or something, and that the rest have not been subbed because either the rights ran out, or they gave up subbing it due to poor sales or not enough attention. Good luck!
If anyone knows and can inform me, and this other anon if all the episodes up to the last one have been subbed and released, that'd be nice
I own DVD / BD sets from episodes 1, all the way to 50 with full, accurate subtitles. I forget which company I originally bought it from though, sorry.
Considering few months ago Sorachi made a blatant shipping arc featuring Tsukuyo, a character that disliked by fujos, I can safely assume that he doesn't care at all about fujoshi.
Oh bullshit nigger. What about all those goddamn BD covers with all the guys half naked, embracing one another in a lewd manner?
This anime is pretty much in the middle. And by that I mean it's both for guys and girls. Both for Otaku and for Fujoshi.
Accomplishing something like that is very hard, but sorachi, in my opinion, has done it nicely. Not only that, but he also managed to produce an anime in which there's literally more than one main character, and a little over half are guys, instead of the often used male and his female harem cliche.
I forget which exactly but one of the two was developed to be an exact counter to the other, I think Gintoki because the original plan was for GIntama to be about the Shinsengumi.
Sorachi already planned for them to be two sides of a coin, he hardly panders.
Get out, faggot.
I usually hate fujoshi bullshit but I can't really blame them this time around for not liking her. She's really not attractive and idk who decided on her hair color but it's a really shitty green/yellow. She's also pretty bland personality wise.
By comparison, Hijikata is not only better looking but has a more interesting dynamic with Gintoki.
That being said, I always wanted him to get with the purple Ninja chick.
Yeah, that's what I meant. I can hardly think straight right now, I've been up for over 30+ hours in celebration of the news that Gintama is getting another season.
In fact, I've marathoned about 50 episodes since the news broke.
I need to sleep
>I always wanted him to get with the purple ninja chick
>liking sarutobi over Tsuuky
Mah nigga. Sarutobi master race confirmed.
Because the companies need to make extra money SOMEHOW. And also women need a target of lust and sexual admiration because without that, they would bitch and complain about
>waa, waa, men get everything, where are our oversexualized half naked kissing males glistening with sweat
In the money game, it's about fantasizing and crowd-pleasing.
>>waa, waa, men get everything, where are our oversexualized half naked kissing males glistening with sweat
Going to be devils advocate here and say they have a right to bitch and whine. It's only fair to have mutual oversexualization of both males and females.
I'm not sure, I've never given it any thought personally. Unless it was a repulsively poor color choice.
Some people are just more color sensitive than others. What to us is just kinda light blonde might be a very specific shade of light green tea green to another anon.
I thought Gintoki and Hijikata only pretend to 'actually' hate each other? And no, not because I think they're tsundere for each other. I thought they were generally okay with one another when one or both of them aren't acting like complete retards.
No they genuinely don't like each other on the basis of personality but deep down they see each other as sort of allies.
That was what everyone called him during the Yagyu arc. Also probably has something to do with his bangs.
Great news, but why did people think this wasn't coming? It's always been this way. Sunrise was too busy making gundams and the manga still had to run for a while for new content.
This pic pretty much sums up their relationship.
Everybody talks about which arcs they want to see animated, but what about the individual chapters?
I can't wait to see this chapter animated.
I think it's something due to Warner Bros. cameo at the end of Benizakura movie, Sunrise had to get in contact with original branch at the west for permission, and one thing led to another.
Right now I just want a fucking confirmation of number of episodes. It's literally the only thing keeping me from going full HYPE. Any idea when that info usually gets published?
Right, my mistake. Tama already has another OTP though.
It's going to be a full 4 cour. You can bet your ass it'll be at LEAST 24 to 46 episodes.
They'll probably go for the full 4 cour though, into at least 2 more seasons. It went on hiatus, kinda like HxH, except Sorachi actually comes back and stays back for a while.
No worries anon. Listen, even if he did only stay for a 2 cour, or worse, a 1 cour, he'd be back the very next season to continue. That, I can 100% goddamn- guaranfuckingtee you.
Uhm, just because she was friendly with him doesn't mean that she loves him. Tama is just a nice person who likes to help others in distress.
Seriously though? 2014 will always be remembered now as the year christmas was fucking saved. I mean, am I the only one who thinks this? It's kind of infamous now that Gintama was announced 3 days before christmas and that sorachi probably had it planned all along as a surprise christmas present to his fans or some shit.
I agree and whatnot, but when men take the sexualization of women too far, at times people are even thrown in fucking jail for it
When Men end up sexualized, it's either laughed off, schlicked over hardcore by horny fujoshi everywhere, or is blatantly ignored by way of reasoning that "its no big deal".
Theres a very obvious boundary between what's acceptable for men and what's acceptable for women. Even you can't deny that shit.
But, then again, that's what makes gintama so great.
You'll never see a censored pair of tits or a pussy, but you'll see tons of censored balls and cock, for fucking miles. Now tell me Sorachi isn't pandering at least a little bit to women. Women should be able to have their cake and eat it too once in a fucking while though, so I don't mind.
Actually, this was the first time people legitimately thought that gintama was done, what with the convincing movie ending and all, and besides, at the end of the movie when they played that music and had that final still-frame with gin, shin, and kagura, it really did feel like the end...I teared up like a bitch, not gonna lie.
