They didn't kill Otose in 4 Devas Arc nor Zenzo in SA Arc. Any of those deaths weren't exactly necessary but it would've added more tension to their respective conflicts.

Fuck! Even Takasugi's death would've make sense! After all his conflict with Gintoki is now solved after that heart-to-heart. It could've been a nice change and a prove against the whole "Gintama's serious arc are just shitty Shonen rip-offs" argument. Just imagine how upsetting it would've been if Takasugi had died WITHOUT knowing that Shoyo-sensei shit. Or imagine the Joi Patriots reunion not being able to take part 'coz one of his members is not alive anymore... I dunno. I cant trust Gorilla anymore.

I was really glad with Gintama and was expecting them to be the ones who broke that idiotic "No MCs deaths" rule this season 'coz Gintama proved to be a completely different animal... But boy was I wrong.

I'm disappointed.


No deaths you say?



No INTERESTING deaths I said.

And what with that spoiler? LOL

Shigeshige's was pretty much foreshadowed since the beginning of the Arc and it was THE game changer. I wasn't complaining about his.

I'm just saying that Sasaburo was an antagonist whose sole plan's purpose was being killed off. That doesn't count at all. Gorilla can do better.

Two main problems:
The show consisted mostly of serious (non-comedy) arcs. The problem with serious Gintama arcs is that they are generally generic shounen crap. They are absurdly predictable and always lack proper development resulting in extremely forced outcomes. They also almost always end up with some motto that the villain or main cast learns while regretting his actions/past. That part in particular is cringe as fuck. They use the same formula every time. There's also barely any tension because you already know the main cast won't die. They will defy logic and live no matter what.

The characters are also inconsistent. Shinpachi in particular is useless but he whoops enemies easily when it comes to serious arcs. In addition, characters like Nobume, Zenzo and Isaburou have the most convenient back stories. They are given certain motives and then, they pull out these random back stories mid-way creating massive twists in their motives. This would be fine if it was foreshadowed. However, Gintama doesn't go over their back stories nearly enough to warrant any of these developments. Without already reading the manga, there's no way you could logically follow these developments.

I favour Gintama comedy but this season had pretty weak comedy. It's nothing compared to what we received in the older seasons. While some of it was mildly funny, the rest was a disappointment. There were two main problems.

There were often these glimpses of comedy that occurred during the "serious arc" or mid-fight. The lack of purpose and clash with the mood left an impression of it being out of place. Did they serve any purpose beyond our mere entertainment? Not often enough. I understand humour can be used as plot devices to convey ideas but this was unfortunately not always the case. Seeing as these are "serious arcs", they should make an effort to make proper use of plot devices.

The episodes committed wholly to humour and in fact, most of the comedy in general was predictable and too basic for its own good. Honestly, any trained manga author could probably reproduce the humour without much thought. Gintama is known for its ingenious comedy that continues to surprise and impress most audiences, and this generic piece of work they tried to pass off as Gintama does not live up to the name.

Gintama dot is certainly a disappointment when compared to its prequels. Overall, Gintama dot is a 5/10.

The quality of each episode varies. 5 is an average.


if you seek for comedy read the manga instead they passed some comedy arcs to did SA arc

It finally ended. uuuhhh THE FEELS </3
and the feels ♥
it was a shipping spree for me! xD


That aside, I don't read the manga so I was kinda scared that the Shinsengumi people would actually DIE in the end like in Hakuouki! I'm so glad they didn't die or I would bawl my eyes out. And Kondo has a scar now lol xD

The ending was like in Hakuouki too.


Now to rewatch the comedy eps!!! Since this and Osomatsu-san ended I need funny anime for the next season. ;_; Maybe Sakamoto desu ga will do ... ??

I didn't like this episode too much. Maybe because it reminded me of how the series is never going to be the same after the last two arcs. And I don't like this change. I want Gintama back to its absurd and inconsequential. It was a pain seeing the ending credits. Not just for the Shinsengumi and the great moments they've given to the show but also for the easy-going tone and jokes that will be missed.

On the other hand, the ship baits. Seriously this arc has gone too far and too out of character with this. We know that Okita and Kagura are rivals, the joke has been beaten to death, but there is no need for this pile of saccharine among the two. This is pushing it too far. Making them show affection for each other screws the joke around them completely. And Otae x Kondo... pfffff. Really. I know that we are in a serious mood but come on. The focus of Gintama has never been romance teasing, and it doesn't feel right if the non-comedic interactions come through this filter.

What I liked about this episode, and had an effect, is the scene where Nobume and the Shinsengumi-Mimawarigumi pay their homage to Isaburo. It was quite emotionally compelling and I liked the soundtrack quite a lot, it's the same that has been used various times in the arc iirc, among them in the very first scene.

This episode is a very generous 6/10 to me. Nice as a farewell to the arc but very out of the mood of Gintama for a season finale. Annoyingly solemn with zero self-awareness. I was expecting the characters to deliver a message to the audience, or something like that, as they always do :(

For the season as a whole, I guess 9/10 is fine. I loved the first 34 episodes. I liked the SA arc. I tried to like the FS arc but ended up enjoying it only sporadically. In the end I'm left with a sour taste, but this season has had too many great moments throughout.

why do you need to kill someone if not necessary, use someone's death is the most stupid tactic IMO

Shed tears on sasaki's tribute scene, kondo x otae scene, kagura x sougo, gintoki x toshi scene, ending shinsengumi farewell, gintama being MAL #1, gintama season ending, and just everything else related to gintama. It will be forever missed. huhu will always be the best anime of all time.

That extra look of longing in Otae's eyes during Kondou's goodbye was beautiful. That wasn't in the manga so bless you anime staff. They've always added a few cuts on scenes that involves ships and they didn't disappoint my KonTae shipper heart.

Wonderful episode. Best send-off for Shinsengumi. Gintama dick jokes will never be the same without Kondou though...

Overall, awesome season. 10/10

Great season, i liked some of the serious arcs, some battles were epic but i REALLY miss the comedy. Without the comedy, Gintama is just another shounen anime.

I still think that the first season was the best one but i really liked the comedy in this season and probably that's why i'm gonna give a 9/10. I have conflicted feelings about being ranked #1 because even though i love Gintama, this season is definitely not better than FMAB.

The last arc was very predictable, Shouyou-sensei should have stayed dead and there were moments that Gintoki lost so much blood but he always stood up while another character was less hurt but it was like he was already dead o.O

Well, in the end i'm gonna miss Gintama and i hope next season will have much more comedy :)

You call this a comedy anime?

Why the hell is this anime making me cry more than laugh?
Come on, we're suppose to laugh over their comical sufferness or fighting/teasing to each other, not crying over when the two characters are actually having a good time with each other and laugh with each other (which is a very rare to see).

But mann, such a bittersweet ending. Edo's falling apart and Shinsengumi forced to leave. The farewell scenes between the Shinsegumi trio and the Yorozuya + Otae was very beautifully done. With Shinpachi and Otae finally accepting Kondo, Sougo and Kagura having their 'final' fight, and of course Gintoki and Hijikata having a great time together :(

I just realized that the opening theme, Know know know, greatly reflects on the Shinsengumi's decisions and goals (I just looked up to the lyrics earlier). I'm going to miss all he casts of Gintama really. I'm really looking forward to the new season especially with the Joui 4 reunion tease at the end and also Shinsengumi's comeback later on. (I can already imagine their comeback would be like they saved the Yorozuya's ass from a deadly fight or something).

Anyway, Chizuru Miyawaki did a great job on directing this season of Gintama, especially with this her first time directing. Sure it may seem shaky at first (the animation and scene sequences) but she really did a great job on directing the emotional scenes like Gintoki vs Takasugi fight. I don't know whether or not if she's going to continue directing the next season, but if she did then I'm sure that it'll turn out really good.

11/10.
Time for me to start reading the manga I guess. There better be an announcement of the new season by the time I finish catching up with the manga.

Wish the final arc would just continue without a break but budget and all that stuff. I guess I just don't really like the idea of a next season being 100% serious arc but with this break, they will be able to make the final arc the best they can so that's good too I guess.
Sweet dreams are made of this

Salute for Isaburo and last Gintama ep.
This was a great season, from the comedy to the awesome action of SA and FS arcs

I am quite amused about Gintama's new MAL ranking, at it's rightful place.

Damn this feels sad for a Gintama finale, it feels lonely to say this but "Farewell Shinsegumi". With the last two arcs, this season was quite a rollercoaster compared to the previous ones T_T

Overall 5/5 for the episode and 10/10 for the series.

Seeing as these are "serious arcs", they should make an effort to make proper use of plot devices.

Let me correct myself. While the the episodes committed wholly to humour were entertaining to watch, they consisted of a very small portion of the anime. The Confessional Arc, Afro Arc and Dekobokko Arc was what really stood out. Unfortunately, this only consisted of 7 episodes out of 51. Outside of those 7 episodes is a dark and baron wasteland. Most of the comedy was just predictable and too generic/repetitive for its own good. You guys should have noticed right? The few glimpses of comedy we got outside of those 7 episodes can hardly be compared to the Gintama comedy we know and love. Honestly, any trained manga author could probably reproduce the humour without much thought. Gintama is known for its ingenious comedy that continues to surprise and impress most audiences. This generic piece of work they tried to pass off as Gintama does not live up to its name.

Gintama dot is certainly a disappointment when compared to its prequels. Overall, Gintama dot is a 5/10.

The quality of each episode varies. 5 is an average.


Pains me to say it but I agree. Worse is the serious arc is even not great apart from the Shinsengumi arc.

The glitters of life is back in the Girl of Faith's eyes.



Everyone paying respect to Sasaki as Gintoki and Katsura watched from behind.



Kagura rekindling Sougo's spirit through bout epitomized her character. Sougo's response was emphatic as well. Why would anyone want to give the anime less than a 10/10?





Otae's "Take care" to send Kondo off was amazing as well. Next time Kondo will be entering through the front gate. Wouldn't you want to give it a 10/10 for that alone?







Gintoki finding a bit of redemption on saving Kondo for Hijikata and others. There was never any debt. That moment alone would make anyone give the anime a 10/10.



And then the laughter broke out! T_T



6/5 for the episode, 11/10 for the season. Readying myself for my weekly dose without Gintama for a while.

The preview for what to expect! I cannot wait!

For anyone wondering, I made a list (based on the wiki) of all manga chapters not yet animated (and probably won't unless they get OVAs like love potion arc).

Gintama's missing chapters:

419-422 kagura's boyfriend arc
424-429 excalibur arc
430
431-433 homeless arc
435
444
445-449 hdz48 arc
487
492-496 love potion arc
499-501 guardian spirits arc
(551----> anime is up to this chapter, end of FSA)
552-581-.... Rakuyou Arc [581 is the most recent chapter up to this point, arc not over yet]

Terrific episode, Just amazing.

Teared up multiple times, Saluted in every they scene they did, Grinned on multiple occasions and laughed along with Gintoki and Hijikata. So many emotions swelling inside me. I have no clue how to express any of them.

This episode was truly great, Loved every bit of it. From Nobume's relit eyes of faith to Kondo's conversation to Kagura and Sougo's "Don't lose to anyone" to Hijikata and Gintoki laughing at the end, Simply beautiful but at the same time it's sad to see the Shinsengumi leave.

Really liked how they showed every Shinsengumi based arc during the end credits.
10/10 obviously xD

Please come back soon Gintama.

All I needed for this episode to be great was Nobume. She gone through so much and she finally gets all the character development she needs. Nobume has no eyes that are dead but are full of life. Still will miss the Shinsengumi...

This anime season was a roller coaster when it came to the adaptation. I prefer the manga but this adaption wasn't as bad as many other shounen were. 9/10, wish to bump to 10/10 but I wasn't feeling this season compared to others. It had its ups and downs but overall it was still amazing.

For an epilogue, this was simply beautiful. Especially the Kondo & Otae moment was just as sad as I was expecting it to be...overall a 9/10 for this season, one helluva of a roller coaster ride, but the comedy was more of a hit or miss compared to the other seasons.

Shinpachi really should be getting more screen time. Or rather have more rolls to do in the stories. He is getting kind of casted away. Also If you gonna bring his sister along in this arc do something with her. Those are my only complaints.

Another 10/10 gintama understand what the viewer want's to see and gives it to them.

I'm going to miss Gintama. Now just have to wait for sequel. Is the anime end close to manga current chapter?
But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

http://www.classzone.com/books/lnetwork_gr08/page_build.cfm?content=analyz_media&ch=30

It doesn't matter if you like LoGH,Monster etc.If you are a jobless or college/school dropout living in your mom basement, you are still an unintelligent loser. Taste in anime does not make you a better person.If elitist don't exist, casual pleb and shit taste also don't exist.

I agree with what's being said, the serious arcs lately have been generic, dragged out and meh, the character development is still good is but it isn't the same.

gintama end..
a lot of good anime end this week.
i dont know why people just looking for comedic arc in gintama, i love their serious arc, because it's a bit (a lot maybe) different from other mainstream anime arc, which is full of not in place comedic. gintama made it in right time and at the right place. i like the comedic of course. but this is jump, and jump without serious arc wont be jump after all.
anybody notice the flash back at the ending. i love it how they sum up all the shinsengumi related episode from the first season.
i love gintama, and i hope they dont give april mop joke in the prev.

this was beautiful, high and far this arc was the best part of the series by a long shot, the way it creates such a melancholy tone by using the events of the entire series both comedy and drama was masterful and only possible with a show this long and this much care behind it. This relationships between the characters showcased in this episode in particular were some of the most real feeling interactions ive seen which is something i never thought id say about this show of all things.

Finally gathered my thoughts aftee that amazing ep.

The Salute scene with Nobume's almost crying face was so good.

Friggin loved the Okikagu moment so much. Both are so tsun for eachother :P

Kondo and Otae's scene at the trash can made me almost tear up. Even the stalker scene was a sad one ;_;

Gin and Hijikata laughing at how disgusting the others food is made me tear up

Them using all thise old pics with the OP at the end and finishing it off with the panel if those 4 killed me from hype and sadness T_T

I wonder where Nobume will stay now?

They were so well done a movie would be pointless in my opinion

They should do one of the past arcs...like the Yoshiwara arc. What I wouldn't give to see an HD kagura vs Abuto fight, and gintoki vs housen fight!

Gintama is just like Katekyo Hitman Reborn.

People hate serious arc in Gintama with no valid reason and people hate episodic episodes in Katekyo Hitman Reborn with no valid reason.

If you want to criticize serious arc in Gintama,compare it with other serious anime and explain why.

10/10 for this season just like the previous one.

Well you can never please everyone, some people have always hated the serious arcs and some others aren't fans of the comedy.

I personally thought the comedy was the same as always (i.e. I liked it just as i've liked it for the past several hundred eps.).

If they ever come back I hope the visual quality is more consistent that this and i'm usually not one to care about visual quality but we've seen better.

Anyway I loved the part where they traded meals. That Hijikata special. :'(
It's really unnerving seeing Otae being this calm.
Nice and appropriate closure anyway to this installment, which we've never really had before.

As expected. the last ep was very well done, a nice finish up for this season. I was kinda hoping though that the Yorozuya could had showed up in the end or something and maybe apologizing to the viewers that they were ending the series again or that they skipped a lots of comedy arcs lol
Well having that short preview for a new season is better than nothing I guess.

Now I"m just going to have a short rewiew for this years Gintama season

Well then, I am know just going to have a short rewiew of this Gintama”s season in which had a lots of good things going to it but some small bad things as well unfortunately. Firstly, it seemed that this time the anime was produced by some different studio or well it was some B-studio that was connected to Sunrise in some way but that doesn”t really matter. What matters was the animation that was a bit different from last time. The characters faces were drawn the same as they had almost been fortunately but the animation this time looked quite a lot more bright and some extra details were added to the world and the characters of it. This looked quite nice at some times but some other times it looked quite sloppy escpieclly in the serious arcs. In that regard, while this new animation is good I would had preferred the old style a bit more.

Next, about the actual anime, the start of season was hilarious as they characters broke the fourth wall once more and apologize for once again returning on screen, Shortly after the series started right where it left out two years ago it went out air and it felt like we all had return to same old days of the show. This dream continue through like until the34 episode when the it was suddenly relewd that the show was going to do the SA arc while the series still had a lots of comedy arcs that haven”t been animated in which could had filled an entire cours or so. This of course like most other manga readers of the series came like a huge shock to me and of course I had a lots of mixed feelings about it at first. Thoughs like why did they decided to something like that? Was it because of budget? Greed? Or something complete different? This is just a stupid theory of mine but maybe the reason that they industry decided to return the anime in the first place after had announced that the movie was going to be its ending was just because of the SA arc and the direction that the manga was going at time. Maybe since it looked like that the manga was now going to go into a actual conclusion maybe it was that that they actually were interested most in animate rather than all the comedy chapters before it?

Who Knows, I don”t know the situation behind the studio and their circumstances, but what I do know is that even though they skipped some material they were never unfateful to the actual content that they took out from the manga. Every ep was very well done most at the time and unlike the first 200-ep Gintama season they didn”t use fillers nor unnecessary edits in the eps. They even got more creative with the series and used themes and effects in the eps that made it more fun to watch rather than just read it, like the logos that they used for the serious arcs or the kuroko parody pause seguence lol despise some bad decision the studio did put love into their works and they knew how it series style and themed worked.

However when it came to the most important parts that was of course the grand SA and FS Arcs they did do some small mistakes their. To put it shortly, the SA arc had a good pace and the perfect amount of ep for it, but the animation in it was sometime sloppy and it by that point that I kind of figured that the studio had their money problems and were maybe forced to end the series earlier. Next when it came to the FS Arc in which was also my favourite arc from the manga things became a little negative as well. While the animation in this arc was quite good or amazing at most times the pacing was not the same good. For example In like the 6 ep of the arc, the pacing was way too rushed and they skipped some dialogues that were quite interesting listen to in the manga. Its not like I am total perfection of things but I just think that they could had done it all great and all if they haven”t decided to put in that small one shot chapter ep right in the middle of the arc, does taking up some space that could had been used for the actual arc. But either way , the remaining eps right after that however was surprisingly amazingly well done just like the ep from the start. Overall, despise its small issues, I am quite satisfied for how the adapted the arc in the end.

Overall, As I have given all the previous seaons of the series a 10/10 I"m thinking of being a little more hard this time and rank this season down to 9/10. Don"t missjudge me, I still loved this season as well, it just got some small issues that made them go a little further away from its usual perfection.
How I love a game

I was always a big fan of gintama but because of the two last arcs I started buying the manga volumes, and god is it as good as I remembered. Can't wait for the next season and I am really curious on how they are going to end it and what ships will happen. (I think taeXkonda, tsukiXgin, kaguraXshougo).

LOVED this season so much. It was the most impactful and strongest season ever of Gintama. I can't wait for Shinsengumi's return!

The FArewell Shinsengumi arc wasnt rushed. Just because more chapters were adapted than previous episode doesnt make it rushed. THere was just less content and more fighting, which go by quick in anime
