After joining the resistance against the bakufu, Gintoki and the gang are in hiding, along with Katsura and his Joui rebels. The Yorozuya is soon approached by Nobume Imai and two members of the Kiheitai, who explain that the Harusame pirates have turned against 7th Division Captain Kamui and their former ally Takasugi. The Kiheitai present Gintoki with a job: find Takasugi, who has been missing since his ship was ambushed in a Harusame raid. Nobume also makes a stunning revelation regarding the Tendoushuu, a secret organization pulling the strings of numerous factions, and their leader Utsuro, the shadowy figure with an uncanny resemblance to Gintoki's former teacher.

Hitching a ride on Sakamoto's space ship, the Yorozuya and Katsura set out for Rakuyou, Kagura's home planet, where the various factions have gathered and tensions are brewing. Long-held grudges, political infighting, and the Tendoushuu's sinister overarching plan finally culminate into a massive, decisive battle on Rakuyou.

Well, well, well, what do we have here? Another anime review? How exciting! Let's dive into Gintama's 5th season (Gintama.) and see what all the fuss is about.

Story-wise, Gintama's 5th season continues to deliver the same wacky and unpredictable plotlines that fans have come to expect. From fighting off space invaders to running a kabuki theater, there's never a dull moment in this anime. However, I must admit that at times, the plot can be a bit convoluted and hard to follow. But hey, who needs a coherent story when you have a cast of characters this entertaining?

Speaking of the cast, the characters in Gintama ...

Mixed Feelings
I am a die-hard Gintama fan. I have watched it until now, and all of the previous seasons were 9-10/10's. They were just really good and nothing was like it.

Then Gintama. rolls into my watchlist. I was expecting more of the same, and for Gintama that is a very very very good thing.

All I find is Shonen battles, plot vomit, more shonen battles, plot vomit, and a lot of stories basically just handed to us. WHY?!??! Can you not take it slow?

The First 200 episodes took it very very slow, with almost no plot, and it was one of the best seasons of any anime ...

The fall of Gintama, by a fan of the series.

Back in winter 2016, Gintama° was pulling out the two greatest arcs of the series. And, one of the best action-drama sequences ever seen in the shounen genre. The amateur studio BN Pictures was in a pinch with the production. Yet Sorachi's writing was shining at its brightest, pushing the series to a whole new level. After the end of the Farewell Shinsengumi arc, Sorachi had two options. He could keep pushing higher, to scale up the series' finale with the power of the previous arcs. Or he could go through the lazy writing route. Sad ...
