Another great episode.
Shame it won't be a three-part ep.
I find the new episode to be incredibly rushed... I really don't like the idea of putting 2 chapters of Gintama into one episode... A chapter of Gintama is already worth about 1.5 chapter of One Piece, and dozens chapters of Bleach...
The best pace for the anime is really 1.5 chapter for an episode...
yeah though it was a very funny episode i would have prefered if they took their time with this arc.
I really want it to last at least four episodes but it seems it will end next week.
Anyway, it was an exellent episode and it made me laugh at least as much as when i read it.
I'm impressed how a yoshiwara maid, a night club hostess and a girl that claimed to be a man all her life can be so pure
New chapter is out....
And another one
Only Gintama celebrates New Year this way.
And I really liked the hints of another past related arc coming.
When they mention the Joui Past, it can only mean 2 things, either we get that or we wont...
I think the manga will continue to laze around this year and put major arcs for next when it's in it's 10th year...
Laze around is the soul of Gintama after all....
I'm pretty sure he was making a joke at how he knows how long everybody's wanted one but he's still never made one.
I just finished the Yoshiwara arc. Fantastic arc, best arc I've read in this manga yet.
Check out my tumblr for my thoughts on random movies and manga^^
I'm watching the anime and am up to episode 34 (the one where Shinpachi dates the chick with the cat ears). The online chat scene was ridiculously hilarious :D
Though i was really disappointed with last week episode that was the first time they censored an episode (and they didn't even use mosaics).
I think it's the first time they hide a whole part but I agree that it's hard to not censor such a scene in an anime.
It seems that even Gintama's staff have their limites (or else they surrendered under the pressure )
Sorachi has been pushing the limmits of what he could do with the latest chapters, as in the CRUSHING attack against Kin-san, the cameo of that male looking politician Renho (that I think that isn't a big deal), What'shername in the Renho arc, the whole premise of the harem arc.
The censored parts will be uncensored for the dvd release.
Just like the other times the tv broadcast was censored.
The new OP and Ending say it way too clearly that there will be a Hiatus, desingwise both very good, but I don't like the song of the opening.
My hopes of them saying that the crap of Monday Elizabeth was a one note joke go lower and lower each day
Wow, I really liked the new opening. I haven't heard the ending yet.
It's sad that there will be a hiatus (well, they are going to cover the last volume in tankobon)
Yeah, they catched up even with a slow pace, and keeping the story mostly intact they managed to do justice to the source material (And sometimes improve it), this is what Shonen Jump anime should be, not something that's 1-1, filled with reaction shots narrated battles, the 2th Foxy arc, the planet exploding in 5 minutes - 10 episodes, the Nth filler kid, the feng shui arc to kill the anime, or Tina.
Wow I love the new opening. Finally the two mascots are back .
Seeing in the ending how many characters this show managed to gather make me think that with that much material, this manga can just last forever just like the Simpsons.

Now, about the anime, loved the new opening, it conforms that we'd at least will get the Baragaki arc, but with it's fast pace, the anime will probably end on April... If we lucky, we'll probably even get Kintama arc, or that they will make Kintama arc as the shows ending? That's not a bad place to end now that I think about it...

Kintama arc would work wonders as the start of the next season, or at least the Mantama chapter (extremely cruel clifhanger, what I would do)
There are at least 9 more chapters, the white shinsengumi arc is 6 chapters, that becomes 3 episodes, and the other 3 chapters left to addapt are: Madao Millionaire, Saint Seiya Saiyan Armor Gintaman Parody and Laketoya (that would work as a charm as season ends, as it talks about the end of the anime), and these are just 1 chapter, they could extend them to become ONE episode. Those plus the end of this arc, 1 chapter most likely. 7 Chapters extending the short ones to the max, with 2 or 3 more left they shouldn't try to do the Kintama arc, specialy as they usualy do some meta-filler at this stage of the season, and they only had one filler starting and was because of the earthquake.
Kintama arc was 9 chapters, I guess that they can get 4 episodes, but it has to break appart before Mantama happens.
It's a given that It won't have any new voice work or character models, but that arc ended like a month ago, It's difficult to push out a episode that fast, it had from the end of the arc (November) to the start of March to be ready, I doubt that 3 or 4 months were enough, specialy with all the other manga arcs going out at the same time.
And it should get a new Opening, one where Gin (or Kin) gets front and center, not like this one that's very standar. The ending just needs a little gold paint to work though.
I personaly would rather to see some filler, an Otsu episode, as I think that she didn't show up this season (just a Boilharu-dressed-as-her cameo when Hasegawa was singing), and start next year seeing a non rushed Kintama arc.
Awesome chapters in sight.
