well in me point of view... gintama is kewl, coz of the well-balanced (action/humor/moral of the story kind) of anime

really gives me lots of advices in life and stuff...

But anyway gotta agree that the first few episodes is a turn in some way unless u read the manga first before watchin

and of the 'harsh' languanges they use which actually give spice and everything nice in it though

but i still like gintama, hahahahahaha

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.


1. i intentionally spelt bad like that so like...baad but... with 2 d's instead.. and 2. can't really blame cr they can't do eeeeverything(also intentional)

i guess most people search for sth. more light,sth. easy to understand, with a straight plot were you can simply turn off your brain while watching.
that's sth. you just cant do while watching gintama cause there so many hints and one joke follows another, that you don't have any time to relax.
also theres nothing like characters growing (physical) stronger or obvious couples who fall in love over the time...

but don't get me wrong! those and all other factors make gintama the best tv show in my opinion.

Gintama isn't popular?!
my whole life has been a lie.

I think the overshadow thing is true.
Most people have never heard of Gintama.
spread the word of Gintama and the truth of strawberry milk.

I personally think it's because the first episodes start off slow, even though I enjoyed them anyway because I was bored. I realized it was definitely incomparable to the episodes after it. I absolutely adore Gintama and to hear that in the preview that the Final Chapter is coming it makes me feel sad. Gintama is an amazing show, I really wish more fans would hurry up and show themselves. All the time you see Bleach, Naruto, and One Piece fan sites, why? Because even though they have bad dubs they were brought to other countries, if somehow Gintama stirred up more of a ruckus I'm sure it'd be more famous. I personally love Gintama, even if it isn't in my own language it's hilarious, the jokes may be a bit more dirty so perhaps people may not accept it as much as in some countries. But I really think it would be accepted, I wish it would keep running for a long long time.

I agree with what u said above..

Gintama really gives good advice about real life situations.. and in my opinion, having those other anime's remarks is a bigplus..

i was hooked by it when in the 1st episode he said, i wish i could have a bankai like ichigo lol!!!!

Spread the Gintama power through the world and the force of the strawberry milk.. xD

i dont think its extreme, its cool that they dont hold back on much
but it is going slow and Gin-san should finally get a real love interest besides that one reporter chick he ignores all women like hes immune to them or something

Maye it's not popular in our country but I bet it's super popular in japan.
It's not fully available in the internet, really difficult to find.
Plus, it has adult content/humor.

But those who don't watch gintama are missing half of their life.

strange, everyone I recommend Gintama to, watch it dedicately after the first episodes and love it. And they go around telling more people. I know we're aren't a lot, but things like this grow. Perhaps, we need more people to weigh in on this, as this is an old thread, things might have changed.

Maybe because Gintama has so much anime references that some people don't get it haha and Gintama is mostly made up of fillers that's why its not that popular. But i still recommend Gintama for my friends to watch x3

God I love Gintama, whenever I feel down or sad, I just watch it and I'm laughing XD yeah, it sucks that it's not super popular like Naruto or Bleach, but then it wouldn't be as special and awesome for us. I used to like Naruto, but then I saw the crazed fanbase with it's terrible cosplays and sasunaru cult, and I just couldn't stand to watch it anymore... and why is Bleach so popular anyways? I watched like, 10 episodes before I got bored >_> one piece, I managed to get to episode 30 before I got bored with it, but I follow every single Gintama episode. And can you imagine the english dub? who the heck could they find that can keep Gin-san's personality alive? And they drop the f bomb ALOT, so it might be censored beyond recoginition...

I only wish it was more popular on youtube, so I could find better episode clips and AMV's, because they're fun to watch ( Naruto has an AMV for every freakin song, I swear!) and luckily I have an account on Pixiv so I can go look up fanart, because Deviantart has only 10 pages for Gintama, compared to Pixiv's 200+...

anyways, sorry for my rant, and terrible English (isn't my first language) but those are my opinions ^^
