Synopsis

Odd Jobs Gin has taken on a lot of odd work in the past, and when you're a Jack of All Trades agency based in a feudal Japan that's been conquered and colonized by aliens, the term "Odd Jobs" means REALLY ODD jobs. But when some more than slightly suspicious secrets from the shadows of Gintoki Sakata's somewhat shady former samurai past and a new pair of odd jobs collide, the action is bound to get so wild and demented that only a feature film will do it justice!

This movie is basically a remake of the Benizakura story arc (episodes 58-61) of the series Gintama. For those who are unfamiliar with it, Gintama is a comedy series set in an alternate universe, where Japan is taken over by aliens. It follows the adventures of Sakata Gintoki - former samurai, who is always broke. He works as a “yorozuya” (something like a mercenary) together with two teenagers and does various tasks to make a living. The series are more like a parody of popular anime series and characters. The whole concept of mixing samurai, space technology, aliens and comedy may sound strange, but read more

For all of those who are skeptical or were skeptical of Gintama, this movie will suck you into the hype. I was once filling the shoes you're wearing right now, but after watching this movie it changed my outlook on how I viewed anime.

This movie's plot comes from episodes 58-61 of the original series, just redone. The story is phenomenal (Gintoki keeps his former friend from destroying Edo).

The art is typical Gintama, as are the character's audio.

What pushed me to love this was that the enjoyment was simply satisfying. From the usual Gintama, I would just get a laugh and that was read more

WARNING: REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS
NOTE: I will not be comparing to the anime Bt as a movie adaptation


STORY:7/10
its a copy and paste from the anime with some well accepted added scenes which were probably never in the anime the story itself isn't anything great but doesn't let you get bored because of the jokes and other screenplay motions.

ART:10/10
The art is absolutely beautiful they improved It alot with better lighting shadowing etc. You get the point. And also the absolutely amazing fight scene added at the end of the movie (Gintoki and Katsura vs Amanto) was certainly a treat for all the fans of read more

The standard shonen jump series based movie often have an original story written entirely just for the occasion. . . Or yearly routine, but having a movie based on one of the series many story arcs is either playing it safe with material fans already know of, or it's just simply being lazy. . . And the Yorozuya knows all too well about laziness.

STORY: Gintama Shinyaku Benizakura-hen is the first (And mostly the only) movie for the Gintama franchise, I movie that adapts one of the series' most famous arcs, the Benizakura arc. . . Or more accurately, rehashes the Benizakura arc giving it a read more
