Yea i love the random-ness, reminds me a bit of fooly cooly ( フリクリ ). I love shows like this. because there is no "real" plot there are no limitations. The humour is very deep, and some what complex and adult themed, not to mention the cultural refrences. This is why i prefer rumbel subs, as they take the time to explain and note these things. oh by the way...these new subs suck, though the video quality is quite exquisite.

I always thought Gintama to be something boring before i even read it, I found it randomly on OneManga after searching the comedy section, saw the cover, didnt bother, then i heard from the manga "Bakuman" that Gintama was a popular manga/anime, so i thought I'd give it a try, I fell in love with it after the first chapter and just more when i read more... xD


Problem is, I dont think people get the puns on other anime. Not when there isnt any translator note or unless you watch and read all kinds of Manga and anime.

And one of the problem from my friend is that there isnt enough violence, I gave up on telling her to watch it if she doesnt appreciates the humour. This anime/manga would definitely be popular for all those hardcore anime/manga fans, esp Otakus.

Since there isnt any plot in the first place, its utter randomness, and I just love that, plus when it gets dramatic I cant believe how intense it is O.o! Its not worth it for people who doesnt understand the humour, in a kind of rude way I'd say they are dumb. But its not that, i know it. Guess there are just many kind of people. Gintama's one of those kind of manga that only 50% of the people like.

GAAAH, I dont know...

Oh right, i think it would definitely be popular for the older audience, did i say that above? I dont bother to read through again xP

It's probably due to the fact it's not that well known...plus, I suppose it has a certain type of humour.

Lots of people HATE filler episodes in anime...Gintama is...basically just one big filler XD So it doesn't appeal to most...but a lot think it's hillarious XD

It may also be due to the fact it's up against Bleach and Naruto atm too...

I like the way Gintama tells the audience how anime works like the season 2 thingy and how they drag time and all and they apply it to gintama without many ppl knowing it. Genius!

well some other anime is overated thats why

I think many fall for these plots so easily Romance, as long they are pretty they don't care or sexy, so fan service and cheap romance
little kids and teens pawn all, do i need to say
animal Ears, ........ don't ask me
Big robots, some are very good, Big O, Gundam Wing and the before ones etc but they like bad ass robots
pure fighting action, i don't blame them

sorry but these are the most reason I hardly like anime, only a few, cheap plots, lame pretty char (some just to be pretty), etc (remember this is my point of view) an bull crap hey i'm a kid and i just pawn your ass who been train for years for crappy reason

but i do like to see the other view point, it is mainly about japan and some don't know about them (like everyone have to know about them), for some jokes you have to know about other animes and well gintama don't have any stuff from above (at the start anyway), remember first and second ep decide on if they like it or not unlike 4kid version of one piece, talking about over killing an anime

Well it's rated 16+ and I guess the young brats who like narutos and bleach "humor" are of course immature enough to grasp gintama's humour; this is the only anime I know that make jokes about hemmoroides, for example.

well.... i don't think naruto and bleach's HUMOUR note spelling. is that badd and i understand practically all gintama jokes(just not all of the parodying ones waayy too many)

BAD note spelling. The old fansubbed episodes had references that told you what the jokes were based upon. Blame cr for not translating them.
