Who would win a fight to death, Darkness without her Sword or Light without his Death Note?
What is it all about?
guy bullies a deaf girl but then later gets bullied himself, so this makes him feel for the deaf girl.
he shows up later after having learned sign language and they fall in love.
lots of drama but the anime movie version skips too much to save time.

I guess I saw already this very same joke. And it is not funny at all.
Why do they keep doing the same jokes?
I really don't get why this is such a huge success.
Same repeated unfunny jokes.
It's not funny. To (You).
Re-occuring character tropes and jokes can be funny and literally coin the cast members. Even an entire show.
On top of that, Monogatari is not exactly a comedy show.
Certainly only people with weird personality disorders couldn't understand the concept of a running joke, but what kind of person resents an anime yet is still watching it some eighty episodes in?
What's your waifus theme song? Is it any good?

Newfag Gintama-fan who only got into the series last year here. The show's a quite behemoth, but boy was it worth the trouble in the end. I'd actually TRIED to watch it a whole decade earlier, but the first two eps didn't impress me enough, and there was tons of amazing stuff airing at the time, so I dropped it.
1) You should SKIP the first 2 episodes. Those are literally filler, as you prolly already noticed. Ep3 is the first REAL episode of the show.
2) The first 20-25 episodes or so are literally dedicated for introductions and mild foreshadowing. While not exactly terrible, that section is easily the worst the show has to offer. It starts picking up the pace after that, with the first ""recap"" episode being a lovely change of pace and example of the show's better humor. You get a first decent "serious" mini-arc around ep 40, which can be seen as an appetizer of things to come.
However, the show REALLY starts to kick up the pace and style after the first year, with the second season packing tons of cool, memorable chapters and way better production values to boot. The legendary "Benizakura" arc is pretty much the show's counterpart to Bleach's "Soul Society" arc, as in the part where everyone agrees shit really hits the fan and gets interesting. It will pretty much set the overall style of the show for the entire series afterwards, with small ups and downs between the arcs.
The arcs of Gintama are notably shorter than in typical Shounen series, which I think helps keeping them well paced and easier to watch too. Some are humorous, some more serious & action-packed, some half-half.
tl;dr: Skip first 2eps, give the show minimum of 25eps, preferably full 50 before you pass judgement. 1st season is merely "OK" for most part, but still VERY required to get into the series' cast and lore.
Left or right?

>anime these days is bad
Why are you all so negative? Anime has never been better.
Sure, there's trash that gets released just like any other form of media. But overall, we are in the golden age of anime. This decade has been way better than any that came before it.
