Madao appeared in op next to Gintoki xDD That's why I watched op twice xDD
This ep was soooooooooooo hilarious and poor Gintoki got trolled, but his expression was priceless.
Next episode looks good too. Just do it!!!
This arc was just too good. The thing with the Shichibukai, and the whole bloated doll date and everything! It was all just so hilarious. Especially the thing with Madao at the end. xD Next ep looks great too! JUST DO IT!
Omg it's been ages since I laughed this hard during an arc :P I loved it, too bad that it was a prank though... Poor Gin-san, I bet they all feel at least something for him, they just hide it very well :P
Ahh well, it made my day when Hasegawa said "you were the one who bent me over" and Gin-san went straight to a bar to drink and forget about it XD
I do hope he'll get his revenge arc/episode though, where they let them believe he's in love with them or that they did something wrong... Would love to see that happening :D
Recently watched this episode. I've got to say, although I thought the first half was funny, when the revelation came that they were all trolling him to get him to stop drinking it went from funny to incredibly sad IMO.
Yes, Gintoki has a drinking problem and yes it's great that the cast stages an "intervention" for him but this is the only time in the series I think things went way too far. The man was mentally and physically abused for weeks and endured a lot of grief over actions he was manipulated into believing he did. The worst part is that the person he DID do wasn't even a woman; rather he was a dirty bum. Not that I'm particularly against yaoi or anything but all that that revelation does is add insult to Gin's (already huge) injury and leads him to start drinking harder than before.
Hell, the cast even tapes it and laughs at him after his heartfelt wish to set things right. What kind of friends are these?! Are these seriously the precious friends that Gin would gladly risk his life to protect?
I started the episode grinning wildly and waiting to see how it would end, but now whenever I think of this episode all that comes to mind is some disgust for the cast and pity for poor old Gintoki. I wonder what sort of revenge Gin is plotting...
I get that it's supposed to be funny and I definitely had some laughs too but I feel like it crossed a line here. Physical abuse is part of Gintama's regular humor which I have no problems with but I just can't bring myself to laugh at someone who was tied up in the middle of nowhere for two weeks, just for gits and shiggles.
It's very likely that I'm the only one who feels this way, which is fine. At least I can take some comfort in the fact that my beloved Tsukuyo was against the plan :/
