for all the people getting mad about the plot twist, when Sorachi explains it later you'll see what a genious he is, seriously, it've been foreshadowed for a very long time ago and it was pretty strong connected of the plot he'd made :D

I like this. When you already know what's gonna happen as a manga reader but then still get the chills from the anime, you know this episode is very well-directed.

Music is top notch. just from the first entrance of utsuro, you get the feel that "here comes the big boss". The reveal is also stunning. You dont' get that scene where gintoki's face overlapped with pictures of memories in the manga.

Althought fighting scene at 3 vs 1 was a bit lacking. I guess al the budget goes into utsuro vs gintoki.

For those who are kinda betrayed by usage of anime troupe, I'm not a guy who bothered that much cz the execution was amazing.

all in all, I have to give the sound director the most credit

Nobody here mentioned other long-running adaptations. But hey, let's play that card, like anybody here defended those anyway. At least One Piece doesn't leave manga stuff out in its adaptation like this season has supposedly done so much. See? We can always turn it that way. Please don't

Anyway that is so irrelevant to the actual fuss it's amazing. The visual execution was quite fine, the premise is what I'm taking issue at. Since I'm an anime only viewer, I guess I'm in my way to be enlightened in subsequent episodes. Don't worry, I'll keep watching the arc.

@jal90 I'm reading the chapters as episodes pass by. There is really nothing left out. A panel or two is sometimes skipped but other then that it's nothing too major. Last episode was the only episode that left out more than two panels but even so I didn't feel anything different in that page. Message was the same that anime was trying to tell. Infact, if you notice it, you'll be amazed how much panel to panel they are adapting this.

As for the comedy chapters, this season seems more focused on the story aspect. Those missed comedy chapters can be adapted anytime. It's just a matter of time before they announce more OVAs

Everyone is Sasaki's enemy, he fought alone.
Farewell Shinsengumi Arc Part 7 : KARMA. Let it begin!
Airship cannon fired. But he's not dead. Nope.
YOO SOME FUCKA WITH HAKI JUST CAME IN!!! FAKKING HAOUSHOKU HAKI!!
That so called real reaper looks like he has 2 days left to live, he looks ill, the nose part of his mask looks like a chinpo.
AYY KAGURA CHAN!!!!
But she's getting beaten up by that chinpo nosed fucker. Not gonna lie , his fighting is powerful.
Shiet Okita fell from that cliff, he's not been beaten though.
Lol good old Gintoki cosplaying as a burnt man even in this situation.
Heaven? Those ain't the heavens, Sasaki is wrong. All I see is a man with a chinpo nosed mask and a man who is Gintoki's bitch.
There will always be one guy. One fucking baka. And your sword won't reach him.
Gintoki with 2 swords, that guy's smile, he's getting beat.
I fucking knew it was gonna be Shoyo, always had a hunch it was Shoyo but I was casting that thought away. WHY THE FUCK IS SHOYO ALIVE?
It isn't Shoyo anyway, just a nobody.
I was hoping the art and animation would get better but whatever.
Good episode, seems like Sasaki's end is next episode.
3.7/5

Yep, I guess, these episodes are quite fast but I haven't heard a complaint of them missing out stuff so I assume they are being well adapted. I was referring to the whole arcs that got skipped, which hopefully will be gradually brought as OVAs like it's already planned for the Love Potion arc.

Yeah I hope they get adapted. I don't like reading them, there are far too many words which can be tedious to read. Just listening to the VAs is fun in it's own.

Pfttt at those peaple like to be dumbasses, hard-to please guys overeacting over the animation. Ever thought about 'budget'? Or are you guys willing to give them money?Instead of watching it free? Pftt...be realistic dudes! What the heck? Are you guus anime judges or something?You should be grateful that they didn't fucked up the anime like some certain animes...OP...Naruto...cough...
What's more...about guys who have just watched the anime and find the plot twist lame,normal, without even knowing anything, just pftttt!


The budget is in fact limited this time and they are doing the best they can. Sure it can be sad to see your favorite scenes as stills with special effects on occasion, but when you look at things like gintoki vs utsuro this episode and gintoki vs takasugi/ kagura vs Kamui/ sougo vs Kamui from the SA arc, you can tell that the studio has a lot of passion and knows when/ how to use their budget.

Looking forward for the last 2 episodes they are gonna be great/sad to see.

WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK????????????????????????????

This was one of the most shocking reveals I have evern seen in any anime. I'm not sure if/how it makes sense yet but it sure had me stand there with my jaw dropped for a good 2 minutes (literally).


This is exactly what happened here as well!

Shoot, I was watching this episode with no high expectations and it suddenly started to give me chills until Gintoki's fight that I was already a lots cause...

There was no place for jokes in this episode.

I hope this arc won't end the anime though.

It will ........ I mean didn't you notice that Gintama has 51 episodes listed. But it also has great chances of returning after 4-5 or 6-7 months time period.


I really hope so, I loved this episode, I love this anime... and I'm in shock ;_;

I'm an anime-only watcher and I actually didn't expect this at all! I really liked how they did this, it was very exciting! I could almost feel the blade in Kagura's hands... and the reveal was almost as shocking for me as for Gin... >_<

I can't wait for another week... But I have to D:

After I watch the last episode I'm probably going to read the manga. And I'm going to buy merch. I need it ;_;

THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The boss man is here! And boy did he show off there. Not a single one of them stood a chance against Gin's sensei. First time ever seeing Okita shiver. Was interesting to see how Imai betrayed this guy in the past too apparently.

Gintoki finally using a real sword<3.

Finally, the reveal :). Can't wait to see the reactions of anime-only viewers.



Best episode this arc thus far. 5/5.


no one's gonna ask how Gin's arm went through that sword over his shoulder after he slashed downwards? xD

Anyone noticed that Gintoki vs Utsuro has been foreshadowed in the previous ending? The Ending flashes all the characters that he faced off against and right in the end they show him facing off against Shoyou...

This is why Gintama is one of the best anime ever

Holy shit ! What an episode.

Shoyo is alive. I thought that it might be him , when we got close ups on his mask and hair, but still wasn't sure. Now you know , that guy is too op, when even Okita is shaking facing him. I mean , he was pretty confident against even Kamui , who we know is a beast. Utsuro is on another level. Can't imagine how you're gonna beat him.

Loved the teamwork from Nobume , Okita , Gintoki and Kagura. I'm really excited for the next episode .

Why Gintoki didn't grip his sword when he swung down?

He never used his arm after that happened.

Well well, its seems the studio really did manage to do a great comeback after last weeks ep that was too rushed for its material, This time they hardly skipped any dialouge at all and the tension for certain scenes were just great.

I have to agree though that some fights animation were handled a bit mediocre like Gintok vs Oboro but overall I think the animation stayed pretty much at top at the most important parts xd

Now please studio make the next ep legendary as well and if I start crying from it I will forgive some of your mistakes in the past xd

I have been preventing myself from watching this series ever since the Shogun Assassination arc started.
Today I have marathoned all but the next episode..
And damn.
Im really really really REALLY glad I waited.
Sure I read the manga so I know what happens but still.
Having to wait a week between each episode would seriously have killed me.

Anyways that fight was way too good.
Really great to see how Nobume had faith that Gintoki would come.
Love Nobume. So much.
Dat teamwork tho.

Gintoki's voice at the end was also top notch. Really hits the emotion.
Props to VA.

I loved when Kagura grabbed the sword and screamed to Gin. gave me chills

Utsuro sees Kagura's potential, I hope that means she will learn to control her Yato abilities soon

This plot twist was crazy.

Wndering about Nobume's word. that Gintoki wasn't the one who killed shouyo and "he is shouyo and not shouyo at the same time"
I think theres something more (deep) in Nobume's words.
Or Am I reading too deeply into it?
Any possible explanations?

WHAT? I've seen that Utsuro in the OP so many times but now I've taken a good look, dude he looks exactly like Shoyo. And Nobume said he's Shoyo but at the same time, he's not. And she also said Gin-san was not the one who killed Shoyo, but him. Freaking what? So are you telling me Gin-san beheaded a Shoyo double? And Utsuro was actually Shoyo only he'd had a change of heart? And all this time Takasugi doing all kinds of evil shit thinking his teacher was dead but actually he's alive? DAMN! Gintama what are these revelations you're showing to me. I can only hand so much of it.

Yea, had a feeling that Utsuro was still alive in the last arc and the new OP.

>_< This episode's battles were cool, but I'm pretty sure that Utsuro had many chances to strike at his opponents' vital points.

OMG DAT TWIST

I can see people getting upset at the twist because it would seem to betray what lovable character was about but what Nobume says at the end makes it clear that Utsuro is not really Shoyo. So the twist doesn't really betray anything; it was heavily foreshadowed and yet still took me by surprise. Awesome.

My guess is that maybe those evil bastards recognized Shoyo's strength so they modified his body and brainwashed him to make an OP puppet.

But so did Gin-san really cut Shojo's head? Was that some decoy? Or did they pick up the body and stitched him back together to make Utusuro? SO MANY QUESTIONS.

I'm hoping the way Utsuro emphasizes how Gin-san's sword can't reach him (as he literally breaks his sword) might be foreshadowing Gin-san getting back that sword Shoyo gave him. At least that's what I'm hoping.
In the flashbacks he's always clinging to it like it's his most precious possession yet we have no idea what happened to it.

Third post in a row... sorry but got so much to say.

I love the way Gin-san only hesitates for a second even though his enemy has the face of the person he's probably loved the most. It seems like in every other show it would have taken a few minutes of motivational speeches and watching his friends get beaten to near death before being able to fight.

for the utusro one.... wasn't that just a technique? IIRC Oboro also used that when he piereced gin's leg when they were falling down.

OMG I freaking love this episode. When Sougo started to have chills, my heart almost stopped and then Utsuru appeared. This guy is such a beast! Even Gintoki was forced to use a real sword.
Thanks ziggy_Z for the explanation, during Gintoki's swing something looked wrong. But with your explanation, it's now sure that Sorachi is a god.

Dat reveal, Shouyo seems alive, but he can't be alive. I am also confused than Gintoki.
This anime is the Masterpiece
