who is currently animation director of gintama?it looks so fucked up


I hate to diagnose you, but your blind. Episode looked great, had great direction, and your probably just mad that it doesn't look like old Gintama. Which occasionally had animation hiccups as well. Not that this episode had any.

lol you're missing my point completly and what's with old and new gintama??....gintama is gintama for me

Ahhr I am still bothered how animation in this arc can go from brilliant to awkward. Ah well. Still, I am very excited for next week for two reasons.

Didn't expect Isaburo to have this tragic a past. And the revelation of the relation between Isaburo and Nobume also caught me by surprise. Even the side characters in Gintama have so much character.

The episode was great! loved that new ost it was really fitting for that scene of isaburo!
Didn't really feel rushed because two of the four chapters adapted were mainly fighting
5/5

Hello, Am I the only one who is quite disappointed at this ep here? It was freaking fucking rushed!

They cut out a lots of dialoge from the flashbacks and the present in which someeone of them were very important, and some moments when it was heartbreaking tension went by too fast without we can could slowly feel it strongly.

I really though the studio would be smart and just do 3 ch, but now by doing this I"m quite worried if they are even going to end the series in another 3 ep

Animation was great though.

But please studio, don"t screw the rest of the eps up , otherwise I will lose all respect for you totally xd


what flashbacks? they just skipped a few panels/sentences of oboro from what i can tell and they weren't really important it was mainly stating stuff that we already know of isaburo. By the way judging from the tittle of the next ep they'll animate 5 chapters...which would leave 6 chapters for the last 2 eps


Then you better go back and check the content of the manga. Its not such Oboro's talk that they cut some but bascically even all the characters in the ep with dialoge. Sure no scenes were cut but since the conversations in Them was a LOT shorter in some it bascically took out the impact of the characters motives and the little things..

This was such a hype (but also sad) episode...and now we know the real meaning behind Nobume's name ;_;

It's great that Nobume and Sasaki are getting the development they deserve & I really do hope that Nobume sticks around after this arc since she's really growing on me- it'd be nice for her to be a main supporting girl like Tsukuyo or Sachan!!

Next week is looking promising yet foreboding since it seems the dude from the op is making his (?) appearance...I'm not a manga reader so I don't know exactly who it is, but if it really is who I'm thinking, then I'm going to curse and cry!! It'd just be too damn cruel!

Also, cannot believe we only have 3 eps left!! What on earth am I going to do without my grail anime?? I'm certain they'll adapt the rest of the manga when it comes out, but that'll be at least a year away, since BN will likely wait till the final arc of the manga is finished... and I don't want the anime or manga to end *sighs* :/

You're overreacting. They weren't very important sentences, so i suggest you get over it.

Yes, yes, I am so blind I actually have a secretary which types in my stead.

Anyway. If in your opinion animation is perfect, that's fine. Just stop being rude. That's not how discussion should work. I did not say animation was crap. I even called it brilliant, but with few awkward accidents.

Don't get me wrong I love Gintama, but seriously this arc has moments which make me shrug. And I don't mean silly looking details, like characters in the background. For example in this episode when Hijikata caught Isaburos leg to throw him it bothered me as hell. That move looked extremely unnatural for me and I think it could be handled better. Not to mention how Hijikatas body looked like. And right after that: boom perfect close ups.

If you found it perfect, stay that way. Just don't tell me to change how I feel about it. That's up to me.

So many long awaited fights, Gintoki Vs Oboro, Sasaki Vs Hijikata, Sougo Vs Nobume! It must only be me to not get Sasaki's backstory at all until I had to read it on the Wikia page. Damn, why did my past self intentionally read the next couple of plot twists as well?

I'll take anything like The Pet Girl of Sakurasou. Anything as good as that.

I'm liking Sasaki much more after this episode. Who knew that his obsession with emails actually seriously revelates his past? As expected from Gorilla

Nobume crying was unexpected, I'm curious as how this whole thing will end... considering we have like 4 episodes left T^T

GENERAL ISAO!
Newly wed but his woman was pregnant. Very fast "character development"
Madafacking Matsudaira is super badass! amazing old man
They struggle and struggle but they won't die. Katsura and Kondo will be alive, it's not easy to taken down bakas!
Kondo looks too fresh though without his beard and spiked hair though lol
HOLY SHIT HIJIKATA WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!
Ayy we be playing games with the Mimawarigumi
YOO GINTOKI LOOKING VICIOUS!!
Pu55ys will never beat Samurai, Gintoki and his team will never go down.
The drop in art quality and animation is real. But it doesn't matter, as long as I can see GinTama I'm fine.
Sasaki's family ruined.
Fucking airships coming, people's hands and legs are enough to take down a few airships. The Samurai are better than some fucking machines.
The crows from Toriko making an appearance next week. GinTama always keeping that parody up
Good episode, the ending felt like it was cut short. Doesn't matter GinTama is GinTama and I'm fine just watching it.
3.8/5

The PV, don't tell me it's who I think it is...

So Isaburo had that kind of past. Him running to meet his wife was such a great scene. Also, Nobume as a child, too cute. Not to mention her being fond of donuts even back then.

Finally got to see the episode, had been busy in the past few days. Anyway great backstory, now it feels like Sasaki has become an important character and not just 'another' side character. Damn all these characters really have depth. Animation and art were great, didn't notice any hiccups this time.

Just three episodes to go :'(

How rushed is it, like too much or what? As an anime-only, the pacing was really good, the dialogues felt naturally paced and backstory took its time and stuff. Action was great and didn't felt as they went fast or anything.

Personally, I didn't find anything rushed. They cut out one or two dialogues but that's it. I'm surprised they were able to fit 4 chapters in this episode. They may even adapt 5-6 chapters next episode since it's not that dialogue heavy.

I've read this part on manga but still felt bad for Sasaki when I watched this. Decent animation on this episode, overall good pacing to build the atmosphere when they started viewing Isaburo's backstory, and simply the best part on this episode imo.

Next, the Shinigami will make his revealing for the first time.

Isaburo's past, man. :(

He was thinking of all kinds of names for the baby too.

Amazing flashbacks! Seeing Sasaki lose everything is just sad.

Nobume crying, she could have been killed by Sasaki but was lived on.

Last 3 episodes!! Wow this is getting too intense!!!

Goddamn. I can't put into words how satisfying this episode was. I've been wondering for so long why Sasaki's doing all these. I was wondering, what's in it for him? Why's he so eager and determined to end the Shinsengumi or the Samurai era all in all? That flashback was enlightening. Who would've thought he's one of the people who sacrificed the most.

I'm a little confused about what Saski is trying to do... why did he keep a fight with the Shinsegumi if he was really after the Tendoshu?

I get that he wants to get a rebellion started (this is why he supported the new shogun). Having Kondo killed would also help by having the Shinsegumi rebel... but not if they end up all killing each other along with his Mimawarigumi.

Was he trying to lure the Tendoshu out so he could kill them? This seem like the only explanation, but the impression I got at the end of the episode was that both the Shinsengumi and Mimawarigumi did a lot of damage to each other and now the Tendoshu have all the advantage.

Anyways, loved the episode :) Nobume is always awesome, now even more after getting her backstory. Kagura stopping her fight with Sougo was also super badass.

Sasaki's backstory is heartbreaking. When he was running and then found his family killed like that was so fucked up. So thats how Nobume came to follow him. Also Nobume crying like that was really sad too.



Then and now,
