Synopsis

As the war temporarily calms down and Edo rebuilds, Gintoki finds Shinpachi—who is still unaware of his return—on a bridge. However, as a fight quickly breaks out between the Yorozuya and the Tenshouin Naraku, suspicion grows, forcing Gintoki to use what is nearest—a loincloth—to mask his identity. Saved for the time being, Gintoki enters the Yorozuya office, but unbeknownst to him, someone else is already waiting there...

Meanwhile, Kondou departs Earth to marry Princess Bubbles in an attempt to improve diplomatic relations. After boarding the Gorilla Amanto mother ship, he realizes that he doesn't speak their language. Confused, Kondou tries conversing with them, only to inadvertently gain their support. However, someone associated with the princess crashes the ongoing ceremony. Will the wedding continue, or has Kondou just been saved from becoming the next Gorilla Prince?

Gintama: The Semi Final continues the story just at the bridge scene where Gintoki meets Shinpachi. It was more like the calm before the storm as these episodes provide very little to no progress in the plot. So if you want to experience the same old journey of Gintoki and the others, you have come to the right place.

Returning to the anime community is the king of comedies that tugs on your heart’s strings, Gintama! How fitting is it that after many fake outs, it finally ends with the Semi-Final and not The Final!

Gintama the Semi Final features two fun stories that deliver the full Gintama experience. Tons of laughs, dirty humor, callbacks, poignant conversations, and heartfelt character progression.

The Semi Final adapts chapters 686-698 of the source material and is structured in two parts: the Yorozuya and the Shinsengumi. Considering the amount of character progression & plot developments that occurred in those chapters, not to mention the comedy, it surprisingly adapted a read more

In case fans of Gintama want to know what The Semi-Final is, it basically adapts a few chapters that took place between episode 367 and The Final that weren't gonna fit/didn't blend well with the story in the final film. It's a direct pickup from episode 367, so it does feel a bit weird to watch these two episodes, but it probably would feel nicer to watch if you watch this right after episode 367.

Have I been waiting to watch this forever, or what? To preface this review, I have read the manga content that went into The Semi-Final and The Final, but I'm not read more
