THE GREATEST ANIME OF ALL TIME RETURNS ONCE AGAIN
whats the point of ending the last one? couldnt they just adapt the remaining comedy arcs and do the serious one after that?
changing the studio was a mistake , Sunrise taking the helm when?
oh, are you saly your favourite anime didn't even get a second season while Gintama will have more than 400 episodes, at least 2 movies and 1 live action
I'm so sorry
Gintama lives forever!
Haters can go and read the LN or the manga to see how their favorite series continue.
how's the manga? I thought it's on its last breath, or is Sorachi planning to go full Bleach and squeeze every milk of this cow? I honestly dropped it at the beginning of the last arc because the jokes have gotten really stale.
If it was 100% 'filler' it would be even better. The comedy is top tier while the plot driven arcs are terribly written. If they made up the entire series it would be a total joke of a battle shounen, it couldn't get away with all the cheesy, cliche bullshit if it wasn't mostly comedy.
>caring about MAL at all
Are you mad that Gintama topped that shit site ranking instead of your favourite anime ?
It was overall disappointing. QUALITY scenes, few filler, which had helped raise the quality of the series. It was just dull overall. Didn't help that they skipped some of the best comedy arcs and left one for an OVA.
>continuing to rape the Sengoku era with more of this shit
Looks like there's an outburst of newfags trying to fit in here.
The comedy is Gintamas worst part. After watching like 20 episodes you can predict pretty much every joke because they are so incredible repetitive. It also doesn't help that most jokes are one of the characters screaming "LOOK THIS SITUATION IS SO STRANGE THUS IT'S FUNNY!". It manages to be even more obnoxious than laugh tracks in western comedy series.
The worldbuilding is great, the characters are good, the serious arcs are amazing, the comedy gets old and annoying quickly.
The world building is shit and the aliens were basically forgotten, but the real issue is that Sorachi just cannot write battle shounen arcs. They are full of cliche ridden tragic back stories, melodramatic speeches full of obnoxious extended metaphors, badly choreographed fights, forced climaxes (like last season Gintoki vs Takasugi, dragging that shit out in a desperate attempt to give it impact), forgettable new characters we have no attachment to because the arcs are so short, etc. It's all very amateurishly written and doesn't hold up next to Jump's other battle shounen mangaka. If it was all serious those weaknesses would become very obvious, as is people appreciate those arcs because they're juxtaposed with comedy and seem more emotionally affecting as a result.
I don't really care to argue about comedy, it's too subjective. If you don't find it funny that's all there is to it, but battle manga can be judged more objectively.
>believing in Sorachi
Of course Gintama would come back someday.
I really like Gintama's fast pacing for the serious stuff though. I agree that he overuses tragic backstories way too much for the antagonists, but I don't consider the quick pacing a problem at all, but rather a quality. If you go back and read Dragonball manga, you'd see that it's battles were much faster paced than most modern shounen stuff too. It's almost like modern authors are more inspired by the anime than the manga
There are a couple of stories where Gintama's fast pacing was a problem, like Shinpachi and Kagura one shotting their opponents in the 4th king of Kabukicho arc, but I don't think that's generally true.
However, I guess the fast pacing was a problem for the last season of the anime, since they aren't adding almost any filler anymore. In the manga, wordless action pages take quite a bit of space, but in the anime, if the action isn't extended it ends up lasting much less than the speeches and conversations given during battle, which really did hurt the last season.
Where do you think you are?
Also, if you think this is bad, try swinging by Madoka threads where one guy polices the threads to ensure that nobody discusses about things outside what he wants.
couldnt said it better myself. its strange though, its not like sorachi is alone in writing mediocre or below average battle-shounen material, i guess its his comedic writing that really highlights these flaws and creates such a difference in quality.
>huuur duuur Gintama have good looking males therefore Fujoshit.
I remember when I was a teenager and I thought this show was funny
Times have changed, wouldn't watch it if you paid me to now.
It has male character besides the mc and they don't like each other and/or are total jerks to each other.
Sorachi's even aware of the fact and uses it for some jokes. But apparently the fanbase is an argument against the work here.
>Anime is great, the first three seasons are pretty good, the last one not so much.
Season 4 was weaker than the previous 3, but it still had a fuck ton of quality moments. Man, I still go back and watch the Gender Swap arc because that shit is FUNNY
Can't say I'm surprised since this shit happened around 10 times already, but I'm really excited nevertheless
>tfw it's just gonna adapt the shitty serious arc
Were people seriously not expecting a new series? The last one ended with them questioning what they were going to do until the Shinsengumi came back and we just got introduced to the new big bad.
Noice. But it only confirms that manga is ending in this year, most likely.
Have you ever read/watch it? Gintama anime/manga even makes fun of fujoshits' retarded fanfics, neo-/a/.
I really hope that once Gintama ends that he makes a series out of the yankee shota one shot
Its true, only the Shogun Assasination Arc had some good animation, because the rest was basically DBS tier.
If only Bones or Madhouse were to animated Gintamas last season, it couldve been completely awesome(Look at Mob Psycho).
Gintama got me back into anime. I had pretty much given up on anime after seeing Bleach shit itself during Heuco Mundo. But, I got a CR account and tried it out, 200 laugh inducing episodes later made me realize that anime doesn't have to be about shitty self insert protags beating the next villain of the month.
I do not car if its shit or fujoshit or toilet humor, I'm happy there will be a new Gintama animee and you faggots cant stop me from enjoying the shit out of it, Takasugi a shit, Sho-chan will always be my waifu.

>IPs are shown
>can't reply to myself anymore
This makes me very happy. I've been dragging my feet through the Farewell Shinsengumi arc because I was dreading the end of the anime. Not that I won't just catch up in the manga, but still.
That doesn't mean much, fujos enjoy a nod in their direction, parody is done for the sake of the people it parodies. Osomatsu does the same thing. People need to accept fujos have good taste in comedy and stop being defensive.
I don't even understand how anime still has what you could call a functioning fan community at this work. Like why do people even bother anymore, what's the point of just following something to shitpost all day. It's literally every forum and website now too.
Thread and franchise police are some of the absolute worst of the worst fan types around. Nothing tops Fate and The Defenders of The Canon and their imagined glorious but actually just really annoying holy war against the "secondaries" though.
Honestly the first thing that comes to mind when I think about anime now is the forever shitposting fandom and all of it's fucking baggage. Goddamn are anime fans fucking stupid nowadays.
It's really fucking bad everywhere now, don't just think it's only 4chan. Everything just kind of went downhill fast after older fans apparently decided to call it quits and the millennials started taking over with all their nonsense and bullshit from growing up with twitter, youtube and the like.
>changing the studio was a mistake
Changing directors was the mistake, you can see the drop in quality when that happened (and that was at Sunrise). The new studio is not really making any difference.
Not that I'm complaining, even a bad Gintama episode is better than the average episode of whatever airing in a given season.
It's weird having you growing out of shounen phase while watching a show. Gintama was amazing to be a few years back but I found the last 2 seasons to be mediocre. Now I'm scared of rewatching older seasons because I'll probably be critical of them too.
>growing out of shounen phase
Just wait that phase to pass. When you reach adulthood, you will enjoy Gintama again, trust me.
God damn it anon, where the fuck do you think you are?
There's hardly been regular threads for a long time. This is probably the first Gintama thread I've seen in months. At least one that didn't die after 2 posts.
If you want a shitty general check the catalog.
Who the fuck cares about fujoshits
Look who's back
The old director likely would be good enough to carry an entire filler season - just look at Osomatsu-san. But, yeah, if it's still the same team from the last anime, they're likely going to end the series this time.
This, somebody do something and make this happen.
I haven't missed shit, I just have yet to see it.
I have it downloaded even. The music in Gintama has always been top notch, right from the very first OP
>is that a penis? xD
>no it's Neo Armstrong Cyclone Jet Armstrong Cannon xD

Even fucking Family Guy is funnier than this.
