Gintama's back!

Kagura's mom is a real beauty. Assuming we will learn more about her this arc.

These people are childish af to do that. (Not just for Gintama but for whatever anime that gets #1 or close)

Anyway, OT :
AAAAAAAAAH, feels good to see Gintama back again !
Lol'd at the Saiki reference at the beginning and them talkign about love live and the love livers.
Anyway, the OP and ED sounded better than what i expected but wasnt amazing tho.

Let me point more towards the 1/10 Voting: Whoever Votes like that are pretty much butthurt because their favorite aren't up there (not like I cared about the Top Lists but that's just pretty petty from their end xD)
Yeah, thats pretty pathetic. I had one user that was (keyword, was) in my friendlist who never watched Gintama and just straight up gave it a 1. Gave him a little word and unfriended him. (anyway, i never talked to him ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

I don't care that much about the hating from 1/10 anime voters or 1/5 episode voters, but if this solid episode isn't a 5/5 one, I don't know what is.

This explained Usturo's identity/origin in a really solid way, and I still expect more details to come! The decussating concepts of death and immortality according to Utsuro are promising for what I imagine of someone who's supposed to be the main antagonist of an anime like Gintama.

Solid 5/5

Technically yes, it's the BNP staff, so basically it'll feel like as if its made by BNP. However, they're making this at Sunrise's studio.

Wtf ? Was this spoken of in any news?
I don't remember where I've heard of it, but from what I know, the opposite's happening with ClassicaLoid, where Sunrise staff are working at BNP studio. But BNP studio was originally created by Sunrise so work on anime that air on family-friendly IPs and the studio won't work on a late night time-slot. Sunrise makes anime for both time-slots though

I love the ED, everyone looks like they walked out of a wuxia drama. xD

And I didn't expect Kagura's mom to be shown in the series, but when I saw her in the OP I knew right away it was her mom (despite never seeing her before). Looking forward to what's in store. :D

Well that was excellent! A great start for the brand new season of Gintama, and what a buildup for the upcoming episodes in this new arc. That may have been a lot of info dumps in this episode, but this makes it clear who Gintoki's real enemy is.

I am so hyped for the rest of the series! :) Kagura's mom is hot af.. :o

What a way to start the day for Gintoki, right under Elizabeth's dick.
And,lol, that "hideout" was useless.
Kamui and Takasugi are missing, and Umibozu seems to have helped the Harusame.
Utsuro wants to rule and destroy everything.

I think the entire episode focused more on piecing things together further since last season, and I like the explanation throughout how Altana works

I don't think later arcs will elaborate on what altana is so I'll pull out a statement from Sorachi, I believe, from a source I've forgotten where. Altana is the energy of life of a planet that leaks out on various spots of the planet, forming what people call "fengshui", or special places with unique harmony between animals humans and nature, often a sign of good luck and health for people who live in these areas. Apparently Sorachi adopted this traditional oriental concept to the extreme by saying that people and animals born in these spots have mutant abilities. Two cases mentioned so far are Utsuro, an immortal man, and Sadaharu, aka the Inugami.

Wow so much things we learned this episode. Amazing episode overall as expected, I had heard some negative things about this arc but thank god this episode was good.

Glad we had some comedy in the beginning of the episode, gave me a warm welcoming and I had a smile on my face the whole time :)

The things we learned about Shouyou, or Utsuro is very interesting. So in a way Shouyou was just many of the personalities Utsuro probably has. It did remind me of Sensui from Yu Yu Hakusho.

The war on Altana is akin to the hunger for Oil. So Earth was colonized because of it's untapped Altana.

Very interesting stuff indeed, looking forward to the next episode.

Can't think of a better show to use my 4k on been waiting for this!

so strange watching Gintama on a Sunday night funny that they opened up with a time-slot bit ,regarding the comedy i'm happy they kept some of it in as they progressively got more serious seeing how the last season ended it would of been weird to just go back to comedy arcs with how messed up the world is right now hell everyone is having a pretty damn hard time like the Kiheitai.

OP has me hyped up for the season really curious to what happening with Kagura's family

Great first episode! Gintama's comedy is still as strong as ever. Lol the Elizabeth's d*** and Matako's D***tako joke xD

The Utsuro's explaination is pretty great too! I have chills when watching him stepping out of flame and hearing the voice drop. Definitely creepier than in the manga.

p/s: Those 1/10 never goes away huh?

The GREATNESS that is GINTAMA is back!!!
Great first episode. Missed this show so much & so happy & hyped to see it back.
OP song is great. ED song is alright.
Awesome to see Gin, Kagura, Shinpachi & lots of familiar faces again.

LOL that Saiki & Love Live Reference.
Nobume is beautiful in that outfit.
Interesting info on Altana & Utsuro.

DAMN Utsuro is a badass. The most dangerous being in the universe.

So freaking HYPED on what's coming up. Can't wait to see Kagura's Mom.

You got this weird feeling when watching this gintama, like this is not gintama I used to watch, but this is gintama too! And then when watching it suddenly it's finished already, damn.

Seriously, can't wait next episode

Aaaaah, god it feels good! Gintama is back and it's going to be epic!

I did read the manga and I love the pacing of this first episode. Starting with great comedy - Zura is perfect - and then switch to serious tone, because yeah, this arc is principally very serious and very epic. One of the best, for me.

God, I love Utsuro. Just with that episode, we just clearly understand how dangerous he is. His seiyuu is really good - the switch between Shouyo and Utsuro gave me chills.

Didn't like the ending, but I really love the op! The song is not the greatest, but the art and the animation won me.

Do anyone knows if Gintama. adapts the manga until the end or just the Rayako arc? The manga will end in the next months, and I can't wait to see it animated!

I really need those first 8 minutes of good ol gintama comedy before jumping straight into the serious stuff. This arc looks like its gonna be one hell of a ride but i wonder if its only going to be 1 cour and adapt the rakyou arc only cause of it having the subtitle battle for rakyou in the opening and ending. I hope not cause i like the idea of "gintama." being the final season with the end point period representing it all being over.

Back at it again!
First episode and it's already hitting me right in the feels!
Heartwarming and serious yet the comedy is still present! and it never fails to make me laugh!

The queen has arrived! Mommy's so alluring! such Beauty! such Grace!

Something to look forward to in this arc:
The Popular Yato family!
This photo is so adorable yet it makes me feel so sad... Look how happy they are before! especially baby Kamui!
It so depressing to think how mommy's demise changed everything...

Shoyo's disciples
the OP and ED pretty much says it all. that were getting some screen time of Shoyo's students!
and Im so excited to see them back like the good ol times! when they fought side by side!
especially that they now know Utsuro's past and with Takasugi gone missing!

A really nice comeback! great episode!

I had a really tough day, I'm hoping this episode will make me laugh, it's gintama after all. That Kaguma mama in the ED though. o.O

Hahahaha as a love live fan, this episode is gold. Lol at those Love Livers wearing Maki and Nico shirts xD

So Shoyo was a bad guy from the very start? That fact must've hurt Gintoki and Katsura. :(

And Kagura's mom looks so hot in the OP and ED. But her gaze is terrifying.

During the SA and FS arcs, the title in the OP also had subtitles that named their arc :D

Is the pin Kagura picked up from Saiki Kusuo no Sainan?

Anyways, glad this show is back. The anime took a pretty serious turn so the amount of comedy in this episode was a bit low. But it is still funny though. The revelation about Utsuro was a bit disappointing I was hoping Utsuro was Shoyo's evil twin or something else. I didn't think they would be the same person.

A great comeback for the fourth season. Can't wait 'til next week

Is it just me or Nobume looks like Akame (from the critic-hated anime)?

I like the way Gin-chan says violence.

I'm so happy that I'm able to watch Gintama as it is airing for the first time (tho waiting for new episodes will be a pain T_T).

It's back. So happy. Good first episode. Already got me hook.
But it's important to remember that a movie review is subjective;it only gives you one person's opinion.

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.

Gintama is so far above Saiki it's literally a huge effort to explain just how superior it is.

BTdubs, this is a serious arc....

Glad to see them squeeze in some comedy. Quite a lot of revelations!
Shoyo was Utsuru all along!! Glad to see its not the generic, 'comes back to life evil' scenario.

I was hoping they adapt the rest of the chapters first but I guess its not really possible timeline wise.

I didn't expect Nobume to make appearance so soon eventhough I read the manga. That's great.

Wish the animation was good? Did you not see that opening? And action hasn't come in yet so it's too early to say if this season has good animation or not.

Good episode. I do wish there wasn't a huge info dump and the concept of Altana is quite new (save for the reference to the shrine maidens which everyone like forgot). I wish it was talked about more before.

Looking forward to the next episode.

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

Kagura's mom in ED was hot as fuck. Can't wait to see more of her.

I hope we will have a lot of filler for this season.
Don't like serious arc that much
