Why did Gorilla suddenly introduce best girl out of nowhere so late in the game? It's kind of unfair to the other girls.
S-so, next week is the last episode? Fuck
How about Draw Your Favorite Scene then?
The classic Gintama face
And next week
The animation and choreography was godly during this fight.
Why does Gintama always try to do these serious arcs? For a show that likes to make fun of all other shows doing the exact same thing it seems kind of hypocritical tbqh. They should just stick to the comedy stuff, this is cringe worthy at times
If you think about in a meta way, then of course you're going to have a tendency towards a critical opinion of it, but it only makes his 'death' at Gintoki's hands more prevalent with respect to what is going through Gin's head.
We also don't know everything behind Utsuro and probably won't until the end of the manga.
Tobi was kind of cheap and was kind of 'so obvious it couldn't be true'. The fact that he called himself Madara, only for the real Madara to be in another castle felt shoehorned in, even if Madara himself was great.
Don't forget that the 'Dragon's vein' was a big deal at the start of the series, especially how it's highly concentrated in Edo, and an untapped resource on earth. If it wasn't for that the Amanto would have never came to earth, and no Gintama. Utsuro is the first instance of it in a person and Kouga is the second. The story is coming full circle.
Started watching Gintama a week ago, now on episode 144, will it continue forever? I love it.
no one knows about that because I'm pretty sure that energy thing was ignored by the anime and half or majority of gintamafags started from the anime and not the manga.
It was mentioned in the anime, but they cut the scene that showed the Tendoshu discussing it in the middle of the Sadaharu story, making it seem like an irrelevant plot point for that one arc, rather than foreshadowing.
Yes, but there's no place for her in these arcs. Just because Otae's there doesn't mean Kyubei has to be there to protect her.
Kyubei's family is allied with the government. There's no reason to include her just because she's friends with the other characters.
Considering that I started with the anime and didn't start regularly reading the manga until the SA arc and knew about it even then, I would say they mentioned it plenty for an anime watcher to know.
The fact they don't make a neon sign saying "This is important", but allude to it is a sign that gorilla doesn't insult the intelligence of his readers/viewers except for when he does it directly.
The whole premise of the contrast of comedy and tragedy making both have more impact relies on and helps to ensure people care enough to pay attention
>Kyubei's family is allied with the government.
And these arcs involve the government, like the shogun getting assassinated in the last story and now the new shogun and the conspiracies around it. She easily could be involved just due to "family with direct ties to the shogunate and emperor" rather than her relation with Otae.
Really, the actual reason she's excluded from these arcs is because she's based on someone from the beginning of the Edo era, so she has no place in the end of the Edo period, AND her family historically, at that point, had ties to the emperor, someone that Gintama clearly doesn't want to touch, aside from mentioning a few times, so giving her the general role of her family also doesn't work.
So, her role would need to be pretty much made up, and she isn't popular or important enough to get something like that.
Can someone explain the whole utsuro thing again?
Does he have that multiple personality thingy?
I honestly forgot about all of this since I became a wage slave.
Pls help I don't want to re read all of it
He's basically a time lord in mind only - every time he dies, his body brings forth a different personality with the exact same looks. Shouyo was an anomaly out of the dozen unmentioned antagonistic personalities Utsuro's had so far.
We are not sure yet, anon. To me, it doesn't look like a split personality disorder (like Reiner from SNK if you had read it), but mostly an internal fight between ideals. Immortality can turn you into little edgemaster.
Different personalities, same body, shared memories. The way Utsuro made it sound,
he'd met and trained Oboro on a different personality, before his Shouyo self came to exist.
At least that's how I understood it
or it could be that Kewl fucked up the translation, which wouldn't be unheard of
Not really, but is true the Emperor was just a puppet in many cases. But I am assuming, in Gintama, ShigeShige is going to be the last shogun, and technically, the Emperor should play some role iwhen the shogunate is finally abolished. Also, the Emperor was the one related to the heavens and all the clergy stuff.
I guess it's just a bit jarring to see after Gorilla pretty much moved away from most of the Amanto stuff a pretty long time ago. It might not have been bad writing but I think he could've thought of a better way to bring sensei's disciples together than this.
But I don't really care that much, I've grown past it. Current manga arc is pretty funny as well.
I think it was Shouyo who trained Oboro. As mentioned above maybe that is the reason why Oboro let the 3 students live, probably to repay Shouyo saving his life when he was a kid and in a near death state.
No, if that were the case Oboro definitely would've tried to break Shouyo out. After Utsuro saved him, Oboro swore he'd serve Utsuro for the rest of his life. Shoyo couldn't have been that incarnation he swore that to.
Why not? it seems to be plausible based on this page. Utsuro appears suspicious of Oboro's loyalty.
He also doesn't seem like the type who'd save a dying child, unlike Shouyo.
>Even if that promise was made not with me, but with a different me?
There the one who Oboro promised is Shouyo not Utsuro. That's why he kept them alive after Gin killed Shouyo.
Is it gay if I only bought Zura merc just because he is too underated?.
I love Zura episode, I fucking love Zura, he is hilarious.
But If you compare him to popular character in merchandise, like Gintoki, Toshi, Sougo, Takasugi, and Kamui, it's understandable if he the least purchased character.
Correct me, anon,
Bakufu is government, the leader is Shogun
Naraku is somekind of government secret agent or assassin, the leader is Utsuro
Mimawarigumi is special task police, the task is to protect the government, the leader is Isaburo
Shinsengumi is special task police, the task is counter-terrorist, the leader is Gorilla
Zura is hilarious and even though his VA had a much deeper voice than I'd pictured, he really nails it.
>this whole episode
what the fuck did I just watch ?
>mfw utsur ost kicks in
When the fuck are they going to release new gintama's OST ? Every arc has a fucking hype one
So with two episodes left to go, do you think they can wrap up the arc with next week's episode? I really want to have the last episode be a filler gag episode like when the first ever Gintama series ended.
Is a new season confirmed? Or are you just guessing?
I'm pretty sure they'll animate the rest of the manga sooner or later, but I haven't heard of any confirmation that they'll air new episodes this year.
Just a random episode with maybe some character we haven't seen in a while would be great. Set at Yorozuya, and random characters come calling and then at the end they all have a little bow and say "Gintama will be back!" would be absolutely great.
They showed the best scene of the manga right now animated, kinda.
This is preety much a confirmation that they will adapt the whole thing soon.
Fall is just my speculation.
Will Shinpachi ever beat a strong enemy? His adult version was pretty strong,but right now he's always outclassed by Gin and Kagura. I feel bad for him, even though he managed to beat Pirako and Yato soldiers.
The problem is that the only named opponents Shinpachi could fight at this point are all out of his league. I guess you could use some of the survivors captains of the Harusame( I think there are still 3 or 4 alive, not sure) or Abuto, but I don't see it happening
>open tumblr to locate a chinese translation for this chapter
>someone complains about the previous chapter being about Umibozu "pickup artisting" Kouka
How does Utsuro compare in the greater scheme of things considering that Gintoki managed to hold his own for a while before hesitation kicked in while he got royally stomped by a Hosen well past his prime.
You are behind the times.
Kagura is nothing now compared to her mother.
wasabout the fall of a man and his struggle to live his life, but now it's just filler shonen shit with some samurais and stuff
I know but even alone, he wasn't completely outmatched unlike vs Hosen who effectively beat him in 3-4 attacks (I know Gin got the sneak attack off after but that was just overconfidence from Hosen who then ko'ed Gin straight afterwards).
Makes sense that Utsuro was holding back though as he did seem to be taunting Gintoki the whole time.
I know it was foreshadowed, and I know the explanation given later in the manga makes sense, but I still can't help but feel that Utsuro is kind of cliche. The whole 'teacher is the last villain' thing is a trope that's been done to death already
Indeed it is. However I think it's something the Gorilla planned years ago( it's pretty clear that the events from Shogun Assassination arc to the final arc were ready to be used whenever he felt like ending the manga) and he didn't want to change it, even if there were better options.
I would have liked more if Utsuro was his own character, but I didn't disliked so far
but I also like villans being smug and getting away with their keikaku, so my opinion is biased
what a boss
Did anyone else think that this was a stupid stylistic choice? The moment I saw this face I was reminded of the one he made for laughs in the scandal arc, couldn't take this scene seriously at all.
Yeah, it looked just like his shocked gag face. Speaking of stupid stylistic choices, I'm not sure how to feel about Utsuro's rainbow attacks
>Yeah, she's the daughter of one of the strongest clans in the universe and her father is one of the strongest ever
>Oh wait, her mother is not only best girl, but very capable on her own.
>She also also has super energy stored inside her
Kagura confirmed for Jinchuuriku? Seriously, the paralells are just way to strong for this one.
Gintama is full of these faces, so it's a bit hard to make anything new I guess. At least they didn't draw any blood veins.
But yeah, Utsuro going rainbow is overdoing it a bit. Is it cause he has his super powers and every attack is empowered with it? If so, couldn't they've made it a bit more subtle, considering we didn't even see anything of the likes in the manga.
tfw you'll never watch Gintama for the first time again
>those glorious times when you still had 200+ new episodes to watch
>could watch as much Gintama as you liked
>could look forward to new OPs and EDs
>now I am a jaded fuck waiting for new eps every wednesday
It was already confirmed in the movie that she will somehow resemble the mom.
Aaaaaah I want her to look down on me with disdain while I lick her feet.
>you'll never enjoy one of these events live
I wish somebody translated the Sorachi notes from the tanks. The tumblr doing translations seems to be dead now.
>Sword next to neck.
>Raises arms above head then strikes down.
Whoever is in charge of Gintama° art direction has been over relying on realistic faces for reaction shots unlike before where you would get gems like this.
