i think besides that the few first episodes goes really slow due to characters intro and stuff, it might be because the subs really take long for come out, i mean in other popular animes (ex.: bleach, naruto one piece.....) we have the subs hours later they released in their raw version. while gintama, well, i saw till the ep. 50 then it was very hard to get the subs for a long time, until a couple months ago or so, and even now they only up to ep. 85, so there's still a long way to go for subbin :[



......good thing yuurisan subs is now on the scene they r really fast and high quality subbers :] hope they can have the whole episodes asap.

I've recommended it to my cousin a dozen of times, but he doesn't like it because he thinks it's stupid, non-sense and too random...which it really is... I guess not everybody can appreciate its humor.

I think its because not that much folks stick around after seeing the first season episodes... which sadly miss the cream of the crop that is the later episodes. But its a good thing Gintama is unpopular. Cause if it was, there goes this entire section.

Everyone I know who's watched a lot of Gintama likes it. The only reason there aren't a whole bunch of obsessive fangirls / fanboys is because it hasn't been released overseas yet. Keep it that way. Those obsessive weirdos sometimes make me hate shows I love because I get sick of them.

maybe its because of the phrase they use.. people don't really get the meaning behind everything they say in japanese.

I don't know personally. I love this anime, but if you asked me last week what is was i would have been dumbfounded. I believe its because its not much "hype" around it at least in the u.s.. Remember there was a time when people where like "whats a naruto?" huh ?.. These things have to catch on that's why i like sites like this. I actually spend a bit of time researching anime to watch, whether it be popular or not, either i like it or not.
If you want it to catch on tell everyone you know. i know i will.

Most of my friend who i recommend gintama to said it was boring, probably because of the fact that the first few ep lacks humor that the later eps have. However i also believe that it's overshadowed by other shounen animes, ppl would think that it lacks a great deal of action comparing to those other animes. Anyways i dont care if it's popular or not it's probably my favorite anime

umm.. i love Gintama.

I think alot of people over look it because they are to busy being narutards and watching bleach..

and another reason i don't think people may like it is because there is no real plot. ( even thought this is what attracted me to the anime) and it's very random.

some people couldnt just understand the humour and just gives up watching it because they think it is random. to make it popular all gintama fans should recomend it and rate this.
