What is Gintama about?
>>
You posted them.
>>
Gin (middle guy) is trying to become the hokage (samurai king).
>>
Shouting why something was funny just now
>>
Unemployment. And something about cultural commentary of globalization. But mostly unemployment.
>>
Some guy who thought he killed their master years ago and is trying to change his ways of samurai.

Cant stand stories that have modern guns and swords, its retarded

Emphasis on modern.
Obviously if your gun takes 5 minutes to reload and you only get one shot swords still make sense
>>
>>152425817
Melee combat is not entirely a thing of the past. Bayonets still find plenty of use.

Girl on the left loves dirty anal.
>>
honestly if you look at it thematically its a really mature story about moving on with your life. This becomes central again and again in various yorozuya jobs and its a major part or Gintoki's character arc
>>
>>152425391
22 episodes of Gintoki and Kagura picking their noses and wiping it off on each other. It's a fetish hentai in disguise.
>>
What's it NOT about, exactly?

It is basically the japanese version of family guy.

That can't be because Family Guy is garbage.

I currently watching like 60 episodes so far. Most of the jokes are kinda lame, but I get a lot of valuable life lesson from it nonetheless.

Very funny. It looks like a penis, but they call it something else.
Top tier comedy right there.
>>
>>152425391
WWII didn't happen. Aliens instead.
>>
>>152430756
Yeah, that's the joke. Is not about being funny per se, but creating the atmosphere that you share the joke with the characters even when it makes no sense.

It actually is, but it's ok, is not like I would expect our average shitposter to even understand what I just said.
>>
Has /a/ done a gintama popularity ranking poll yet? My favorite Gintama episodes were the popularity war they had.
>>
>>152430756
Sometimes I just want to watch stuff with knob gags and a good back and forth between characters. Is that so bad?
>>
>>152431045
I Haven't seen one, but lads love Yoshiwara on Flames arc
>>
>>152431167
Yeah that one was really good I believe the popularity ranking episodes come shortly after that arc.
>>
It's about nothing.

I was baited into watching this shit, the biggest waste of time I've ever subjected myself to.

Gintoki and Tama, obviously.
>>
>>152431687
They're both unfunny, boring and rely mainly on references, which are the worst form of comedy.
>>
>>152430256
This.
>>
>>152431844
>unfunny, boring
Your opinion.
>rely mainly on references
that's a valid point, but again, you just turn it into an opinion when you said you think is a low form of comedy.

Family guy is about the pathetic intends of a family guy surrounded by a family full of losers. Gintama is about a group of misfits bonding. If you want to compare Family guy with a japanese animation, then try Shin-chan, but Shin-chan is actually good.
>>
>/a/ suddenly hate Gintama

WTF HAPPENED????
>>
It's because gintama finally became cool when it was not cool and now it's cool to hate on it cuz now it's cool. It finally passed that threshold years ago and nobody noticed, that's why.
>>
>>152425391
Yorozuya Gin-chan?
>>
>>152425817
Fuck off, Katanagatari was a masterpiece.
>>
>>152431755
Why is Tama so sexy?
>>
>>152434215
Because she is pure 2D in 2D.
>>
>>152434153
Samon is the new Gintama and Gintama is the new cool shonen. That's it.
Is funny when you think that a lot of anons keep headcanoning about serious arcs where the characters become OP. But now that happened, all of them behave like they never wanted it.

/a/IDS and c/a/ncer

ignore it and enjoy your shows
>>
>>152434286
So you never read a book.
>>
>>152434240
It hasn't yet; but I can see how it's similar to early gintama when it was kind of weaker till it got crazier over time.
>>
>>152434301
Samon still hasn't crossed the line of serious arc. It just had some scenes mostly related to the cat under the rain. I don't know if the author is going to pick a serious arc, and seeing how Gintama's rank has been doing, maybe he is going to refrain for a while.

I know they have never interacted, but HijikataxTsukuyo would be a fun couple.
>>
>>152436888
They're too similar personality-wise. Two tsunderes would be horrible together.
>>
Easy. It's about the Edo period, but in Modern Japan that just so happens to be the the same years the Edo period took place. By the time any of these guys become legends, I half expect the world to be more advanced than it already is.

That is jap comedy for you.

Gintama is about aliens who took control of ancient japan and takes place in edo or modern Tokyo and an ex-rebel tries to get his life back together
i think i'm not really sure anymore
