With killings going around in town Shinsengumi are supposed to deal with it,right?So telling Gin-san about a rumor isn't going to mess up the hole thing.They are just going to show us what Shinsengumi were doing at that time that we were not shown.A good idea to earn money fill up holes,I think.
Kamui was talking about people,as far as I know.And I bet that scene with stabbing is from Gintoki's dream.
Well,Shinsengumi knowing about the killings is not a bad thing, though I always thought as long as it didn't involve terrorism and threads to national security it was local police jurisdiction. I just hope it won't make Shinsengumi look like ultimate blockheads who missed out on a grand showdown under their noses due to their own total stupidity. Oh, well, we''ll see I guess.

Kamui says, "Uchuu ni wa mada omoshirosou na renchuu ga iru n da ne" - In space/universe there are still bunches of interesting creatures/people/persons/etc (not specified, just living things in general). That's what I hear anyway. Basically the same thing he said during Yoshiwara arc, which irks me a little, maybe because I wanted this realization of his to belong to Yoshiwara arc exclusively.

And I pray it's just Gin's blood loss induced wild dream with Takasugi stabbing him with Benizakura.

After seeing the latest trailer I gotta say I'm worried quite a bit that it's gonna be a mishmash that has little to do with the original manga plot. I mean Sougo telling Gintoki about the fact that Benizakura seems like a living creature?... Takasugi impailing Gin (instead of Nizou doing it)?... Kamui expressing his glee that there still can be found some intersting bunches of aliens?... I have a bad feeling about it...

Well I for one am pleased they're doing the Benizakura arc. I hope they don't decide to do Shiroyasha because it will have to be a filler considering Sorachi hasn't covered it yet, and it will clash with the official material when Sorachi does get around to doing it.


Exactly. Althrough filler would be fine too,JOUI ga JOY
And,since it's a MOVIE there will be better animated scenes,right?Even more excitement,right?AWESOME

Waiting like crazy *~*

I agree with you. Besides, Benizakura is one of my favorite arcs. I'm definitely looking forward to this movie. ^^

Ehhhhhh, What the hell?
Why would they spend all that time and money doing Benizakura?!
That makes no sense.

According to ANN, movie will be about Benizakura..Movie's name is Gintama: Shinyaku Benizakura-Hen..

Most of us thought (including me) they're fooling us and it will be about Shirouyasha..
Here's the trailer

At the end of 181 fake movie preview (Benizakura arc) shown and they said something like" movie decision came out so suddenly, there wasnt any time we decided to use this preview. Maybe we will add few new scenes and fool them"... so they were obviously fooling around. Classic Gintama...

Lately there're so many hints about past so it's time for learning everthing about Shirouyasha..2010 Golden Week huh? Have to wait six months..


That's unless they want to troll like Kyo-Ani.
