Demonic Vice-Commander of the Shinsengumi, Toushirou Hijikata, acquires a cursed sword—one which completely rewrites his personality, morphing him from a hard-boiled, no-nonsense cop into a hopeless otaku. As he struggles to break the curse, an ambitious new member of the police force, Itou Kamotarou, seizes the opportunity to depose Hijikata in his bid for power within the organization. However, Itou's scheme is revealed to be more devious than anyone imagined, and the very existence of the Shinsengumi is thrown into peril.

In another time and place, the Yorozuya squad is suddenly greeted by a potential new recruit. Before them is a mysterious young woman named Pirako Doromizu who hides a penchant for extreme violence behind her smiling, enthusiastic exterior. However, unbeknownst to Gintoki and the others, Pirako has strong ties to one of the ruling figures of the Kabuki district of Edo, and her arrival sets off a chain reaction that throws the inhabitants of the district into a civil war.

Rating recaps always feels a bit conflicting. Should I rate based on all of its content, ignoring that most of it Is completely reused from previous work? Should I only rate the extra parts as rating of the reused content is already covered by rating of the title it’s being reused from? Or should I rate it based on how the cuts and shortening makes sense? I usually lean towards the 2nd option with a bit of the 3rd one.

Are Shinsengumi Crisis and Kabukichou Four Devas one of the best Gintama arcs? Yes. Does this recap actually add anything of value? No, I don’t think ...

What the hell is a bundle of recap movies doing in the top 150 of MAL (number 144 as we speak)? I'm willing to recognize that Gintama is a great anime, and the movies did cover the most important arcs of each one of the two first seasons but still. Is it really worth watching those arcs all over again, but harder to find and in lower quality? Hell no.

What is there to say about it? The arcs are great, although the Shinsengumi rebellion one has aged poorly regarding Gintama's increase in quality.

Honestly, a waste of time. The only reason it's even this ...
