Despite Gintama': Enchousen being shorter than its previous seasons, it still brings the action and comedy part of the show, never leaving, but always staying one step ahead. By doing this, the emotional impact the show brings into the series in some of the small and major arcs is shown in great detail, this leaves the viewers speechless at how perfectly it's put together.

Comedy isn't that strong in series as of late, even in most of the series airing the comedy was either pretty bad or they started out great, but than ended up as failures from becoming great. Knowing when to be funny in read more

i'm not such a good reviewer. and i always rate things on the base that how much i enjoyed it no matter if it's technically weak or not.

well first of all i must say it's ridiculous to rate "low" for an anime because we hate to see that is number one. and also to rate it "masterpiece" becoz we want it as no.1 it's childish isn't it? well i'm also not agree with the way that MAL is going. Gintama is a series that was started in 2006 and running until now. we had timeslots between it but i think we must count Gintama read more

Gintama' Enchousen start with the great story arc of Kintama arcs and continue small but great arcs throughout the 13 episode season. Despite having only 13 episode Gintama' Enchousen is still a great season as it starts to build one overall villain of the series.

Personally, specking Gintama is one of favourite anime as it as a great story, outstanding character, great action scene and amazing funny moments.

The story for Gintama has always been great and create a twist in which they had the main character changed from Sakata Gintoki to Sakata Kintoki was pure genius.

The art of Gintama is just been great throughout the read more

Gintama':Enchousen was extremely great, I expected nothing less.
First off we get the episode with Kintoki as they promised from the last episode of Gintama', it was mostly for the lols but it also focused on Gintoki's bond with his companions and friends, it showed how close they actually are to each other, especially to Kagura, Shinpachi, Otae, Tama and Sadaharu. The second arc of Gintama':Enchousen revealed a little more of Gin-san's past to us and gave Shigeshige shogun an important role to play in, and it shows that Kagura is still friends with the Shogun's sister, the princess that ran out of the castle read more
