this maybe not too relate to d question xtually when i read dis thread, Gintoki does remind me a lot of Kenshin Himura (rurouni kenshin) in so many ways.

a samurai with a sad background, always put a stupid smile to hide their tragic past. n despite the stupid look, is the person u trully dont want to mess or cross with.

the difference is Rurouni Kenshin is more to serious sad heart warming story while Gintama is hillarious slapstik stomach breaking story

xspecially for kenshin, just by seeing him smile make me feel a little bit sad since i know he has 1 of the most tragic past i ever read (dont even let me start about him n tomoe *tsk tsk tsk*). while for Gin san still more to find out (hope the writer will tell us soon)


So i can be agreed with the point that maybe Gin stupid act is to hide or forgot his tragic past.

p/s: eventhogh i'm not sure for him to believed that urine + sugar = man berries xplosion can be consider 'act stupid'. he pretty much convince look stupid at that moment

I think Gin-san acts like a a goofball, idiot, etc. just because he wants to live life much freer. He wants to enjoy it, relax, and have fun. When it comes down to it, when it gets serious, his instincts and ability to understand whats going on is above all others.

Than again this anime is a comedy (with some seriousness to it) so he and others must be rather.. gullible and act ignorant. Although, I think a lot of them really are idiots lol

Gin-san is no idiot. If there was one, it'll be Kondo. the main thing about Gintoki is that he is extremely lazy and prefers to just go about his own way. It takes a large effort on his part just to go about on the day. (You can tell from his voice)

Gin is not a idiot he is just too lazy to act serious all the time. He just usually goes with the flow of things enjoying life, yet when things get in a pinch or friends need him, Gin switches into serious mode or...... when it suits him. Like during the Nabe Leon ep or the Benizakura Arc. Yeah

No way! I'd just say he's too lazy (at times) to be a smartass.
Still nobody can beat him in a conversation (Gin-san always has the last saying)

I just think that he is all rounded. He's serious when the time comes to be serious, but he likes to be laid back. Kinda like Kakashi from Naruto.

It's not as much idiocy or covering things up, as much as it's him enjoying life. He chooses to be ignorant and live his life.

Katsura mentioned on some episode that apparently Gin is the one who "should hate this world the most, but yet he's enduring it" maybe they'll reveal it some time soon?

Well, if you think about it, compared to how most of the other Gintama characters act, can't we say that how Gin-san usually acts is more or less normal in their world? I don't think he's an idiot, he can be serious when he wants to be.

In my opinion Gintama is not an idiot, he's just lazy and ignorant. But he LOOKS and ACTS like an idiot
