The problem with Gintama is that it simply isn't funny enough, at least to Americans like me. It has everything it needs to be funny, a bizzare setting and genuinely funny characters (especially everyone's favorite masocistic bondage ninja), but unfortunately it stops right there. The shows creators must have assumed that if they leave those 2 elements together in a room, suddenly the show will become funny. The problem is, shows really do need compelling plotlines to be watchable and Gintama is only mediocre at this. That is, it is mediocre until the show pulls out all the stops and starts to face us off with cool interesting plotlines that are far better that most (this only seems to happen occasionally, like with the Umibouzu plotline).

Also, I am quite irritable about all the breaking of the fourth wall. It just isn't funny. It isn't funny when the show's creators are calling themselves cheap by breaking the fourth wall, because, they are, in fact, cheap, and self depricating humor is just a distraction so that the show's creators don't need to be original in their humor.

On a more positive note, the anime's success has allowed it to branch out and add something new to the series: awesome action scenes! The fight between Kagura and the Parasite in the Umibouzu plotline is intense, as is the fight between Gintoki and the Jump Ninja (sorry, don't remember his name)

This show is certainly worth watching, but I wish they would cut out all of the stupid elements and focus on what they got right.

On a side note, episode 25 of Gintama is the best episode of any anime...EVER!!!

gintama is really funny. but it can be pretty serious too. it just depends on the episodes. all of it is good. it really just depends on you.

The anime is great. I never knew an anime could be so funny until I started watching this series! I hope crunchyroll can get some of the other episodes uploaded soon. Btw as The_8th_Sin mentioned earlier episode 25 is the funniest episode!

L lives on in Gintoki-san!

Its one of the funniest anime I've ever watch.
I totally ROFL at all episodes.
this anime is really random.
but thats what make it funny.

they reference back to alot of animes especially bleach.
others will be naruto, one piece, eye shield 21, akagi and of course prince of tennis
those who havent watch should watch.
its worth it, really
