Following the temporary retreat of the Altana Liberation Army from the Kabuki District, the state of the war has seemingly improved. However, as the Oniwaban, Shinsengumi, and residents of the district combat the army's remnants, Edo's greatest inventor Gengai Hiraga is abducted. Responsible for causing the enemy's withdrawal by rendering their weapons useless, Gengai's nanomachine virus is now at risk of being shut down.

Meanwhile, a laser capable of obliterating a planet is activated in Earth's orbit on the Liberation Army's mother ship. Another battle ensues when Shinsuke Takasugi and the rest of the Kiheitai arrive on the vessel to stop the weapon from firing. Forced to fight a war on two fronts, the Yorozuya and their allies must prevail on both sides to save Edo and the rest of the world.

I didn't liked Silver Soul Arc as much as i liked Courtesan Of A Nation, Kabukicho Four Devas, Shogun Assasination and Farewell Shinsengumi Arc because i didnt like the idea of fighting the whole universe. I mean because we're fighting the whole universe we almost saw every character we've seen until now on the smaller 1-2 episode arcs, which is really cool.

The thing that i would like to talk about is Tokugawa Nobunobu's character development. He had a Power obsession. He wanted to be Shogun even if that meant that he would get used. He did become the Shogun and he was awful, he treated ...

I love Gintama (anime watcher only) because it is a slice of life comedy with a main story line that will be visit from time to time, the progression of the main story line is slow but works very well when it is imbedded within the casual slice of lifes which made them blend in naturally (we can tell shounen isn't Gorilla's strong suit from the previous season OVA and specials but they blended in well, a change of tastes). But this season goes full on shounen which gave me a Naruto and On piece vibe... but only the bad parts. The pacing is super ...
