Can't people change Gintama' ep count to Gintama? Is just stupid to MAL have separeted both...

If One Piece stoped now for 1 year would we put him finished and put One Piece' even if the name is the same?...

Uh, but the name isn't the same.

The ' is officially part of the title. You can see it in the logo: http://www.sunrise-inc.co.jp/gintama/

And every anime db/encyclopedia I'm aware of separates it. As they should.


This. There was even a segment in one of the episodes where they were answering mail from the fans, and the question about it was brought up and Gintoki said that the ' represents that it is a new series and not to be confused with the original series.

I hope someone keeps updated as to the 'coming-back' date.
Maybe there will be a new title? Maybe the producers should rewatch ep.50 for some ideas.

I have had to tell myself that everyday since the day the anime ended. I want to be surprised when it returns.
