God damn hilarious. I love it when Gintama takes something really simple and makes it funny and (strangely) profound with the Patriot "backstory". The KFC bit had me in fits. Considering most anime comedies get old for me after a dozen episodes, this show still manages to surprise me after 215.

Currently trying to make myself a Patriot right now :D

Is it me or has Hasegawa become a bit of a cosplay freak recently? Mecha-cardboard-Hasegawa and now Patriot version and pantsu-tenshi version!

Now MORE Katsura and Elizabeth please :)

Wow, I guess I'm the only one who realizes all the references to Metal Gear Solid and the fact this was a parody of Metal Gear?

Patriot (Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots) = Tissue box (Called Solid) Toilet Paper (Called Naked)

Can't believe everyone missed that.

Simple, I've never played Metal Gear Solid.

Well. Now I have to make a Patriot, take it to an anime convention, then see how many strange looks I get. After that, walk out on the streets and see what happens.

Just after the awesome Kamui and Takasugi run, we are back to natural gintama - the original :D

The return of Daigoro +1 (I wonder whether he recognized Hasegawa)
Tsukki and Sa-chan-san <3
Hijikata awesomeness. +1
Tsukki losing it after trying to explain how it works. So adorable. +10
Otae beating the head out of Kondo. I literally paused to see her expressions. I swear she had the loveliest smile. +10
Tsukki and Sa-chan-san in school uniform. +100.
Kondo mama and Hasegawa papa :D +10
Kids still kicking Gintoki after all that show. +100

Amazing. I was laughing so hard. Best single episode yet! (wait, I say that after every such episode.) XD

I second this. The Patriot was also an unlockable weapon in MGS3.

I would SO rather have one of these Patriots, though. Not only do you wield it, you can BECOME THE PATRIOT. xD

This was an okay episode. It was mostly built on WTF moments which got a bit repetitive.

The funniest bit was the tour at the end and seeing how every single character in Gintama has manic depression. xD

That Daigoro kid being hardboiled lmao. He didn't even notice Hasegawa! Kondo giving out tips on being a stalker was hilarious. But the best part was the story behind the Patriots.

Words cannot describe how funny this episode was.
I would name all the funny parts but this is the only anime that has too many per episode.

any one realized that the Senyuu of that kid is actually Naruto, and the girl who is Kagura's friend is called Susike or something... I thought that is Naruto reference...(I never watch Naruto though~)

Gintama just love to go full absurd. What's the purpose of the Patriots? Who knows, we may never learn the truth behind the Patriots. He'll join the Justaway as a new mascot... :'(

Patriot.. lmao!

I may be wrong but I think that kid Daigoro was voiced by Naruto's VA. They sound the same. He just need to add -ttebayo to the end of his sentences and boom!

That very interesting and touching backstory with matching masterpiece of an OST.. how come those kids... meh they're just kids. Too young to appreciate how awesome this episode is XD!

It's simple, no matter how low you think your job is, be proud because you are helping the society and the economy even in your own little special way. Unless you a drug dealer.

Tskuyo is always welcome addition to the show, shame that doesn't get more screen time.

Also, the patriot is clearly the best invention man has ever created.

Solid, Naked and Patriot... this is totally a MGS reference (not surprising since it's big in Japan)! Gintoki on that conveyor belt killed me!

Patriot xD

That was sooo random but so funny.

Gin used so much english words who made no sense :D

Hijikata lost it after this one kid asked him so much questions.

Tsukuyo was so cute, I want to see more of here >.<

And then Kondou who got smashed his head by Otoe and wanted to show the kids how to become a stalker lol
Hasegawa and Kondou are patriots.

And then this show in the fabrik omg. That was so crazy funny with mama Kondou and papa Hasegawa and even after all this the kids didn't believe in the patriot and kicked Gin's ass xD

But as always this message behind all the fun, that's the typical Gintama I love :)

I can never tell what is filler and what isn't with Gintama, and I think that's what makes it so appealing to me.
this episode is a great metaphor for Gintama in general, I guess, it knows it's pretty useless and knows that some people will view it that way regardless, but it's important and has meaning to us and that is what matters in the end.

also side note: I've been unwell in many ways lately and having been contemplating some serious shit, this episode helped me a lot.

Sigh. The newer generation will never appreciate a well-made patriot.

So much yes this episode, only complaint is WHERE WAS SOUGO?

Though it's great to see Tsukuyo again she needs more than just this to compensate. :P

I don't think there was a single part of this episode where I wasn't laughing. Just the pretend and everyone not knowing what the hell they were doing but acting as though they did. It's brilliant. Also the conveyor belt part just kept getting better and better. I love when the characters drop their usual personalities every so often and work together to create an even bigger joke. They all mesh so well with each other.

Also Gintoki with a beard!

Those kids don't understand the work that goes into those patriots. Ungrateful little...

Admittedly even without Sougo the character distribution in this episode was very generous and well-selected. Guess I'm just greedy. :P
