Following the grim events of Iga, Kokujou Island, Rakuyou, and multiple fruitless confrontations with the Tenshouin Naraku and Tendoshuu, Gintama.: Porori-hen takes its viewers on a trip down memory lane to when Yorozuya were mostly doing what they did best—odd jobs. The great space hunter Umibouzu has returned to Edo and is livid when he finds out that his daughter Kagura has a boyfriend. He blames Gintoki for being an incompetent guardian, but has the time finally come for him to let go of his daughter?

Back with shameless parodies, risqué humor, and lively camaraderie, Gintoki, Kagura, and Shinpachi are faced with unforeseen situations that manage to be both hilarious and emotionally stirring.

This is my second full review on this site.

I want a life for Christmas.

Let me first address the minority among you, the ones actually wanting to know whether Gintama is worth watching - the ones looking for a proper review. Everybody knows the type - every time a season begins or concludes, a few of these pop out of the woodwork looking to "get into Gintama" or "catch up with Gintama" or whatever. I've had a number of them irl as well.
I understand your confusion. For every 10/10 review claiming Gintama is the best thing since frozen bread, there are probably 5 users ...

If you’ve made it this far into the Gintama series, chances are you’ll be watching this regardless of any reviews or recommendations. You’re probably invested in the characters, not to mention the buildup to the finale that has gradually been revealed through the last two arcs.

This arc isn’t like that. It’s the slip arc, which actually takes place before the farewell shinsengumi arc, so you can expect to see old faces here. (I’m talking the Shinsengumi, Otsu, Ikumatsu, Tetsuko from the Benizakura arc…) This season of Gintama is actually more of a return to the original, before everything got serious. Pure silliness for 13 ...

Mixed Feelings
I don't know who I should blame between Bandai and TV Tokyo, but whoever decided that this should be adapted after Gintama. has seriously dropped the ball.

If you take away anything from this review, just don't watch this season in the intended order. It would fit much better between Gintama' and Gintama° (yes, I do actually think it's funny).

For short, the Slip Arc is a return to the basis of Gintama, a back to the usual style, with 5 arcs and a few standalone episodes fitting in a 13 episode duration. Not only is it moving away from what happened at the end of Gintama° ...
