Gintama is a strange show for me to review, for a multitude of reasons. First and foremost, Gintama is nowhere near a "new" show - what is being shown this season is its "fifth" series (according to Crunchyroll) and the anime has just over 200 episodes under its belt at this point. Two hundred! That's a big number! Another reason why this show is strange for me to review is that I am neither a stranger to the show, nor am I anywhere near up to date - I have seen the first 20 episodes and a few select episodes after that. That’s a lot read more

When you REALLY love a certain anime and hear it's going to end, you weep a little inside. So is Gintama, and the news of the new season were salvation to many sad Gintabros all over the globe.
That's right. The #1 show is back - and I am damn excite, son.

To any of you who haven't watched the first season, please do. but if you wouldn't want to commit yourself to a 201 episode show, feel free to just skip ahead to season two and try an episode or two. The storyline's arranged in inconsistent arcs, meaning you can pick it up from any arc read more

Odd jobs trio takes care of your problem, sometimes through laughing and fun and other times by tugging at your heartstrings. SKET Dance creator (Shirohara) is a former assistant of Gintama's creator (Sorachi). It's therefore not surprising to see Sorachi-sensei's influence in SKET Dance. Comedy styles are similar.

SKET Dance and Gintama' also have crossover episodes.
Roman does the same job as Gintoki does. They both help people.

Gintama- Odd Jobs
Bakumatsu Gijinden Roman- Helper.
