THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Felt more like a recap filler. :/

I thought the OVA was pretty good! Mobile Suit Gintama! LOL! And...how is Gin-san able to cause SO much damage with just a stick?

It was great. Loved the part where Katsura couldn't find the helmet at first.

LMFAO!! Very funny OVA!!

I think the best part was the "sausage"!!

"Oi, there's a sausage too? That settles it...let's do this!"
I lol'd so hard!

I'm glad I decided to watch this before the series, it was a good start!

And, the Bleach parody was fantastic!!

Urahara Out!!

Gundam references. I hope the TV-anime has more of those.

That was more funny than the first four episodes imo.

This was mostly a short filler where they even made full episodes about in the actual series, while only a couple scenes are new it does seem to be the same. Me finishing the first season before watching the specials makes me rather disappointed about this special, either way lets see what's next!

Hijikata/Gin was hilarious. I love them.
It sucks that Katsura was the villain in this though.

I thought I was wrong watching this first, but I think I'm correct.

This is so random, I just like that Bleach ending XD

Man, looking back at that now, it's like I had gone back in time after those 265 episodes. Completely crazy how Gintama changed :3
Didn't that OVA became an episode? Because I do remember that episode.

Not just you, he looked younger in some part of the OVA special...imo, anyways X) It was fun revisiting some of the earlier and funny stuff. The sakura viewing is still hilarious the second time around.

That was funny, better than the first two episodes of the series which I watched before it even though I meant to watch this first but I forgot lol.

The fighting was funny and getting drunk! lol.

Mobile Suit Gintama and the Bleach bit, Gin suits Ichigo's look.

I liked the bit after the end credits with Gin as a teacher as well, that was funny. He looked hot there, but he is anyways but hotter lol.

This episode was my first experience with Gintama. I gotta say I'm totally confused. I felt like I had no idea what was going on throughout the episode. Do you need to have read the manga prior to watching this episode to understand it? Was I supposed to watch something else first? It seems like a show that I would enjoy, but it was just kind of all over the place and left me totally confused.

This is a Jump Festa Special whose only purpose is to celebrate, along with the fans, the fact that the manga has gotten an anime adaption.

Start the actual anime from episode 3.

I figured it was something like that. Thanks! It really seems like an anime that I'll enjoy once I figure out what's going on so I'll definitely stick with it!
