THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
I busted out laughing when Madao showed up as a patriot, following up with Kondo being one also. Madao looking like he belongs in a Victoria's Secret fashion show was great too.
Gin: What's that below your nose?
Gin: Every person has a peculiar indentation.
Gin: Between their nose and mouth.
Gin: What is that used for?
Kid: I-I don't know...
Gin: Now, back to the Patriot.
Gin: It's pretty much like that..
Shinpachi: So you don't know either?!
God damn hilarious. I love it when Gintama takes something really simple and makes it funny and (strangely) profound with the Patriot "backstory". The KFC bit had me in fits. Considering most anime comedies get old for me after a dozen episodes, this show still manages to surprise me after 215.
Currently trying to make myself a Patriot right now :D
Is it me or has Hasegawa become a bit of a cosplay freak recently? Mecha-cardboard-Hasegawa and now Patriot version and pantsu-tenshi version!
Just after the awesome Kamui and Takasugi run, we are back to natural gintama - the original :D
The return of Daigoro +1 (I wonder whether he recognized Hasegawa)
Tsukki and Sa-chan-san <3
Hijikata awesomeness. +1
Tsukki losing it after trying to explain how it works. So adorable. +10
Otae beating the head out of Kondo. I literally paused to see her expressions. I swear she had the loveliest smile. +10
Tsukki and Sa-chan-san in school uniform. +100.
Kondo mama and Hasegawa papa :D +10
Kids still kicking Gintoki after all that show. +100
Amazing. I was laughing so hard. Best single episode yet! (wait, I say that after every such episode.) XD
