The red-light district, Yoshiwara, is suddenly taken over by "Aizen Kou," an incense that has the ability to make anyone fall in love with the first person they see. Having been outlawed for its strong potency, the love drug was thought to have disappeared from the red-light district for good; however, it seems to have found its way back inside Yoshiwara's walls and now has the entire district under its influence.

Of those affected is the cold-hearted Hyakka captain, Tsukuyo, and the first person she sees after inhaling the smoke is none other than the brazen Yorozuya leader, Gintoki Sakata. Unbeknownst to everyone else though, she was already attracted to Gintoki. With those hidden feelings now intensified, Tsukuyo must overcome her afflictions and work with the Yorozuya to return everyone back to normal.

This short OVA series is an adaptation of some manga arc which decided not to fit into the main story line, which honestly makes sense, not only is it a self-contained story, in terms of quality it feels more like the late season 1 rather than season 3 (4?) material.

The arc has virtually no value as a story, and it can be easily skipped, take it from someone who despises skippers in pretty much any anime. The antagonist was introduced in this arc and will most likely never be seen again. And even unlike other "useless" arcs such as the Renho arc, it doesn't even ...

For anyone wondering when you should watch this arc, watch it right after episode 295 as the end of the second episode has a trailer for 296.

This episode was hilarious and very typical of Gintama comedy. The only reason it didn't get a ten is because the antagonist's story was a bit lame. Usually Gintama is really good at evoking emotion, even in silly episodes, but the antagonist for this arc wasn't all that great. I think this could've benefited from three episodes only because it would've given time to build up the antagonist's story and make it feel weighted like it should've. On top ...

Mixed Feelings
Gintama°: Aizome Kaori-hen is an OVA of some unadapted manga chapters. Nothing different from the typical Gintama comedy arcs, with hilarious situations and touching moments towards the end.

The story is nothing special, even i would say it's rather confusing, i felt the "main antagonist" just as a plot device to start the situation shown. Her reasons to do what she do are not reliable at all, but in the end the show knows how to fix it.

This OVA is hilarious. It certainly lacks the typical referential jokes which Gintama abuses day by day and has a lot of sexual jokes and crazy situations related to ...
