Synopsis

Gintoki and his Yorozuya friends (or rather, employees suffering under labor violations), Shinpachi and Kagura, continue to scrape by in the futuristic, alien-infested city of Edo. They take on whatever work they can find while trying not to get involved in anything too dangerous. But when Katsura, the leader of the Joui rebels and Gintoki's long-time acquaintance, disappears after being brutally attacked by an unknown assassin, Shinpachi and Kagura begin an investigation into his whereabouts and the identity of the assailant. Meanwhile, Gintoki takes on a seemingly unrelated job: the blacksmith Tetsuya requests that Gin recover a strange and powerful sword called the Benizakura which was recently stolen.

As the two investigations gradually intersect, the Yorozuya crew find themselves in the midst of a major conspiracy that hinges on the sinister nature of the Benizakura sword. Gintoki resolves to take the fight directly to the enemy headquarters, and together with a few unexpected allies, sets out on one of his most perilous jobs yet.

This movie is basically a remake of the Benizakura story arc (episodes 58-61) of the series Gintama. For those who are unfamiliar with it, Gintama is a comedy series set in an alternate universe, where Japan is taken over by aliens. It follows the adventures of Sakata Gintoki - former samurai, who is always broke. He works as a “yorozuya” (something like a mercenary) together with two teenagers and does various tasks to make a living. The series are more like a parody of popular anime series and characters. The whole concept of mixing samurai, space technology, aliens and comedy may sound strange, but read more

Reviewing Gintama Movie: Shinyaku Benizakura-hen~

The Movie is basically a remake of the Benizakura Arc, which starts in Episode 58 and ends in Episode 61 in the Anime Gintama. As there aren't big changes, you can watch this movie instead of the arc in the anime and vice-versa.

Gintama is set in a world, in which aliens (Amanto) have conquered the world, in which the Yorozuya, jack-of-all-trades, consisting of Sakata Gintoki, Shimura Shinpachi and the Amanto Kagura, are doing errands for a fee. That's basically the setting.

In the movie, Katsura Kotarou, a leader of the moderate anti-government faction 'Joui', has disappeared. At the same time, a Tsujigiri, read more

For all of those who are skeptical or were skeptical of Gintama, this movie will suck you into the hype. I was once filling the shoes you're wearing right now, but after watching this movie it changed my outlook on how I viewed anime.

This movie's plot comes from episodes 58-61 of the original series, just redone. The story is phenomenal (Gintoki keeps his former friend from destroying Edo).

The art is typical Gintama, as are the character's audio.

What pushed me to love this was that the enjoyment was simply satisfying. From the usual Gintama, I would just get a laugh and that was read more

The standard shonen jump series based movie often have an original story written entirely just for the occasion. . . Or yearly routine, but having a movie based on one of the series many story arcs is either playing it safe with material fans already know of, or it's just simply being lazy. . . And the Yorozuya knows all too well about laziness.

STORY: Gintama Shinyaku Benizakura-hen is the first (And mostly the only) movie for the Gintama franchise, I movie that adapts one of the series' most famous arcs, the Benizakura arc. . . Or more accurately, rehashes the Benizakura arc giving it a read more
