After the fierce battle on Rakuyou, the untold past and true goal of the immortal Naraku leader, Utsuro, are finally revealed. By corrupting the Altana reserves of several planets, Utsuro has successfully triggered the intervention of the Tendoshuu’s greatest enemy: the Altana Liberation Army. With Earth as the main battleground in this interplanetary war, Utsuro's master plan to destroy the planet—and himself—is nearly complete.

An attack on the O-Edo Central Terminal marks the beginning of the final battle to take back the land of the samurai. With the Yorozuya nowhere in sight, the bakufu all but collapsed, and the Shogun missing, the people are left completely helpless as the Liberation Army begins pillaging Edo in the name of freeing them from the Tendoshuu's rule.

Caught in the crossfire between two equally imposing forces, can Gintoki, Kagura, Shinpachi, and the former students of Shouyou Yoshida put aside their differences and unite their allies to protect what they hold dear?

I could say a lot about this franchise, but I'm just going to discuss about this season.

Gintama.: Shirogane no Tamashii-hen adapts the first part of the Silver Soul arc, the end game of Gintama. So if you haven't watched anything related to Gintama yet, this season will not be for you.

Story: 10
Silver Soul continues the story after the Rakuyou's Decisive Battle Arc (Gintama.).
All the build-up done in the past it's now coming to it's climax, we see a lot of early plot elements and characters come back, and becoming relevant once again.
This arc has a lot of action, sad and fun moments blended together without ...

Mixed Feelings
Reading the other reviews posted here, and guessing that people watching this have already watched all previous seasons of Gintama; this will be a short review pointing out the worst things of this season.

Since the end of Gintama: Enchousen, every season of Gintama that has been released has had less quality than the previous one; reaching a point where It has lost its former essence and gets painful to keep watching.

The reasons of why this season is the worst and kills the anime, are these:

1 - Almost all the characters that have appeared in the series (even side characters from 2 or 4 episodes ...

Gintama.: Shirogane no Tamashii-hen
Gintama: Silver Soul Arc

I already had huge doubts about the Rakuyou arc, but here they outdid themselves. Everything negative that Gintama could have ever done was present in just one season.

The plot comes to a head, the final season of Gintama was split into two halves. After these two, only the final movie comes and that's it, the story finds its end.

And yet, this season felt like half an eternity to me. 50% of the time the characters are just running and throwing meaningless dialogues around. The rest of the time extremely drawn-out fights with deadly slow pacing.
- This similar ...
