The story takes place in Edo (known today as Tokyo because of the name change in 1868), Japan, which has been taken over by aliens called Amanto since the late Edo period. The samurai of Japan have fallen, and the Amanto placed a ban on carrying swords in public. The story focuses on an eccentric samurai, Gintoki Sakata, his (partial) apprentice Shinpachi Shimura, and a teenage alien girl: Kagura. All three are “free-lancers” who search for work in order to pay the monthly rent, which usually goes unpaid anyway.
Score: 3/10. LOL. It’s so random. There’s no storyline. Period. XD
Gintama has the style otakus of this generation love. Just the same style, though. Nothing new and special.
The opening and closing songs are quite catchy. I like Pray (the first opening song) the most.
F yes! I highly recommend this anime for those people bored of the same old anime that fall under the comedy category. The parodies are frickin’ funny! There’s Prince of Tennis, Naruto, Bleach and many more! It has the right amount of action and comedy.
The best comedy anime I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately, it’s just about the comedy.. and action.
