There's a friend of mine that just can't get into this anime. I can understand that some people just doesn't get the humor of this anime but it's a pity. I would like to know from the beginning, which gintama episode should I show to him up until the benizukura arc.

I can't remember if some of these episodes are before Benisakura, but I do like these episodes.

- Neo Armstrong Cylcone Jet Armstrong Cannon, and Justatank.

- The early episode when Gintoki and Hijikata fought at the roof, "We apologize this picture has been beautified 384% by Ishida's sense of beauty, does not reflect reality."

- Ninja training... Katsura's Curry Ninja...

- Super huge size Sadaharu

- Ep8, Gintoki Vs Kondo, 24hrs showcase the Shinsengumi. F*** the police! F*** the police!

haha... Ok, go to youtube and type in "The Truth About Strawberry Milk."
This is THE epic speech of all time.

If that doesn't get your friend into it, just kick him in the nuts and give up.
