Oops,I said a spoiler. XD


Yagyu is not really an arc since there's zero contribution to the main story (so far), none of the main characters were affected by the story, and everybody forgets about the whole thing after everything got resolved.


IT DOES CONTRIBUTE SOMETHING.

1# Yaygu Kyuubei is added to the story
2# It reveals a bit more about Tae's past
3# It lasted more than a vol long.

That's what it did.If you don't agree,I don't care much either.You have your opinion,I have mine.Everyone thinks differently. :]


Well, lets see:

1# Kyuubei contributes nothing to the story arc overall
2# Kyuubei has made almost no appearance after the arc
3# Otae's role in Kyuubei's arc doesn't change the main story overall (so far)
4# Otae is an irrelevent character in the story (so far), as much as I hate to say it. (the anime actually placed Otae in parts of the anime where she is not presented in the manga).
5# Kyuubei's arc can just be another character thrown in like a good chunk of the others (ala the firefighter woman, the hostmen, Hedoro, the noble girl Kagura hung out with, and etc...), but super extended.

Gintama does have a focal story, and that is the story between Gintoki, Katsura, and what's his face. That story has always been presented from time after time, but very sparingly. Nothing Kyuubei and Otae has done up to this point (so far) directly affects the main casts besides the supporting character Shinpachi.

I think you r mistaken on many stuff...
your point #1 - kyubei and otae is the objetive in the arc. The contribution is to create kyubei as a character and further develops that character.

your point#2 - She appeared in a number of episodes after the arc. Babel tower, Gokon, even in the latest arc 115 - 118.

your point #3 - I dunno your defination of main story.

your point#4 - She is presented in the manga... Many many chapters...

your point#5 - Kyubei is not a main character so she does not need to appear often, but she is not some one time extra.

your point#6 - The amanto wars and their past is an important part of the story, but never their main story. The author intended to make the manga/anime about the life of the Gintoki and gang in the amanto society. Alike Crayon Shin Chan, Shin Chan's story is just a life about a five year old boy in Japan.

The original title of Gintama was actually "Yoruzuya Gin San", however the author doesn't like it so it became "Gintama" after discussing with his family. The amanto wars only serve as a purpose of creating new arcs, and conclude the series. If I am not wrong, the real Amanto wars story will be reveal towards the near end of Gintama series.

1. Benizakura arc. the joi 3 are there, what can be better?

2. the current manga arc - the Yoshiwara arc. why?


3. the Summer Vacation arc. Just too funny to get it out of words.



Also, to TC, you forgot the Kagura's dad (forgot his name) arc, ep. 39-41. that i believe is Gintama's first arc ever.

Benizuka arc, though I think that once the one with the yato is animated that will be my favourite!

Are you really seriously watching/reading Gintama closely? :0

Kyuubei did make a number of appearance after the arc. (She's not Hedoro,Prince Hata or whatsoever.Even Otose/Catherine never make that much appearnce).
OTAE is a relevant character in the story.She is also one of the reason why Shinpachi is at the Yorozuya now,right?
Shinpachi is not a supporting character.If he is,what about the Shinsegumi? -_-
No,the story is not really about Gintoki and Katsura past.It's more about Yorozuya's daily life.

And if Kyuubei's arc is just another character thrown in like a good chunk of others,why does it last a few episode and more than a Volume?

That's all I can say,if you have anymore arguments,you should seriously rewatch the series to get the main point.

Benizakura - one thing that made that so awesome was Gin vs the-blind-dude; I never thought that I'd see choreagraphed swordplay in an anime after watching khr and bleach.

The blind dude is the fierce guy who gets 'eaten'by the sword. The old guy with glasses.
