The samurai didn't stand a chance. First, the aliens invaded Japan. Next, they took all the jobs. And then they confiscated everyone's swords. So what does a hotheaded former samurai like Sakata "Gin" Gintoki do to make ends meet? Take any odd job that comes his way, even if it means losing his dignity.

Ah, Gintama. One of the best and most complete current manga in Jump. Its premise is intriguing and unique (aliens in historical Japan? Who would have thought it?). It has great characters--ranging from the diabetic lazy samurai Gintoki to the samurai who has a mayo addiction Hijikata to the stalker ninja Sa-chan and so on. All of them blend together well without feeling out of place and flat. No matter where Sorachi puts them in, they always get at least one huge guffaw from me. Its brand of comedy doesn't consist only of repetitive and sometimes obscure references, but it's also a very satirical commentary read more

"At its heart Gintama is a science fiction human pseudo-historical comedy. The bottom line is that this is a nonsense manga. But I don't believe in telling readers what to think, so read it any way you like." - Hideaki Sorachi.

Gintama is quite an odd manga, but with so much to offer. The story is told in a rather episodic fashion, with each chapter presenting a different plot. These chapters are often comedic and see the cast of Gintama finding themselves in all different kinds of hilarious situations. The author makes use of many ingenious gags and plot devices to make each chapter feel unique read more

User Recommendations

The main characters in both series are involved in taking requests and helping others out. Not only do they situate themselves in often comedic events, but also ones in which emotional threads are tugged.
Both of these titles share a similar aesthetic; particularly in regard to narrative structure and character design. Both are heavily constructed with comedy and action in mind.
