Hopefully it'll be about the Joi War because that is really one of the most interesting yet (as of now) unexplored aspects of Gintama :D

Seems like I have to watch the anime then.200 episodes...pfffffffff.........


Episode 1-40 will probably feel a bit tedious, but by the time you reached episode 70 time will fast-forward, so fast that you'll reach episode 252 in no time.

Warning: watching Gintama could cause intense stomach-pain and sleep-deprave, be wary.
Id say more like gintama 1-late 20's is tedious, everything past that i remember starting to get alot better


To be fair, they had quite a world and huge cast of characters to set up, i think they did it really well! But agreed it gets better as it goes along :D
i think its more along the lines of it took them half a year to realize they could quite literally do whatever the hell they wanted in this series due to the rules of this world being so free

New episodes ! Hell YEAH !
I don't even mind if they did a rerun through the featured arc first before starting with the new eps.

Justice is served
