Gintama is a strange, unconventional manga that’s become popular among anime fans. But what does it take for Gintama to get good? And when will the show finally end? Read on and find out!
To start off with: you might be wondering what exactly Gintama is all about. The answer isn’t so easy. It can be described as an action-comedy with supernatural elements or even just a slice of life series in disguise (or maybe not). You could also call it a parody of shounen mangas like Dragon Ball Z because at its core, this show has more fights than laughs. I myself had trouble watching this series at first but eventually got hooked into the story and world building.
And yes, Gintama is still ongoing. It’s been running for a decade and counting with no signs of stopping anytime soon. For those keeping score, the series first aired in 2006 before taking on numerous breaks but it currently has 200 episodes as well as multiple movies to its name. The show won’t stop airing until creator Hideaki Sorachi decides to end this manga or another author takes over (which would be unlikely). That said though: you’ll need patience if you’re going into this expecting something that will last more than one season – especially if anime isn’t your thing.
Finally, I hope my explanation at least piqued your interest enough so you can give Gintama a chance without feeling like it’ll be a waste of your time. It’s been my favorite anime since I first watched it and even now, more than seven years later, I’m still following the show every week with no signs of stopping anytime soon too.
Gintama is pretty much an institution at this point – Hideaki Sorachi has had two ten-year anniversaries for his work on Gintama (one in 2006 when he began serialization and another one in 2016), which are both monumental moments that have never happened before in manga history. However, there was once a time where people thought Gintama would disappear from TV forever after its popularity died down but then publisher Shueisha announced that they were giving him yet another chance to continue the series, which is pretty impressive to say the least.
But how did Sorachi manage to turn Gintama around when it was at its lowest point? Well for starters, he could’ve done what a lot of mangaka do in these situations and introduced some new girl that would act as an idol or love interest but instead he focused on his strengths of comedy and satire with Tsukuyo becoming one of the most popular recurring characters after her introduction. And that’s where I’ll stop talking since if you want this blog post to be about just my thoughts then well..I’m outta here!

Okay that’s enough fun and games here on out I’ll be serious from now on (no really). Sorachi originally thought he could get away with just throwing in a new girl as an idol or love interest but realized early on in Gintama’s second run that his strengths lie not only in comedy, but also satire. The introduction of Tsukuyo was one of the most popular character introductions in the series and her arc is one of the most well-liked arcs for fans.
In Gintama, there are three major story lines: a) The Shinsengumi’s battle against their sworn enemy, b) Yorozuya’s fight to reclaim their headquarters from an underground comical gang known as Amanto or c) Shinpachi’s struggle to become successful at love with his unrequited crush on Otae (and later Tae). This article will tell you about these three story lines.
The first major storyline speaks volumes about the shogunate era and how it gradually declined due to its inability to adapt through time. It also tells us how important family ties are and how they can either pull you up or drag you down.
The second story line tells us about the Yorozuya’s attempt to reclaim their headquarters from Amanto, a powerful underground gang of criminals that are sworn enemies with Shinsengumi. The arc also touches on an important issue concerning family ties where it is revealed just how much Gintoki has done for his friends in order to achieve success at love with Otae. It shows what lengths people will go through when faced by obstacles like unrequited feelings and even violence if necessary as well as highlighting both Shinpachi’s journey towards becoming successful at love with Tae-chan and Gintoki’s process of overcoming impassable odds, all culminating in a touching finale.
*Gintama takes place in the Edo period of Japan (in an era that is considered to be one of great peace and prosperity) with aliens known as Amanto beginning to invade the Earth, intent on ”taking over our country and making it into their new vacation spot for rich people.” The series primarily follows Shinpachi Shimura, who works alongside his friends at Yorozuya Gin-chan’s company, which provides its services free or charges very low prices so they can make some money off advertisement placements within manga pages. As per usual Gintoki Sakata starts out by refusing to take responsibility, but he eventually joins after being convinced by Otae,..’

The blog post continues on talking about how Gintoki’s story begins early in season one which starts out pretty slow, but then things start picking up around episode five or six before culminating into an touching finale that concludes the first arc. The protagonist Shinpachi Shimura works alongside friends Yorozuya to help save the day and defeat evil, with a lot of humor mixed in. -Gintama starts out slow but eventually becomes good around episode five or six before concluding its first arc in an epic finale that leaves you wanting more.
