No offense....I think she's a bit to mechanical for him - no pun intended.
Sure, she's pretty and all that, but it would take her quite a while to take it all in and calculate what it means for Gin to protect his own "tama".
Plus all the other romantic stuff he says in his serious mode - it's quite unlikely that she would get it...and even if she does, her facial expression just wouldn't lend itself to that kind of emotion.
Moreover, she's a bit too neat and pent up for him...need someone more lax..

Why hasn't anyone realized that their names together make GinTama?! Coincidence? I THINK NOT!!!!!

And check out all the episodes with these two together. They make for way more romantic material than with any other character combo!!!



Nope, you're not the only one who realized that their names together make up GinTama, but YES it is a coincidence. In fact I don't even think Sorachi knows about this trend of melting names of characters who could be a couple, as I think it's pretty much a Western thing.
Besides, she's part of the Yorozuya family and Gintoki would never ever see her as romantic material, not to mention that she's a ROBOT! She's extremely nice and well mannered, especially compared to the other girls, and sure Gin appreciates that and treats her with respect but that's it really.
If you want any further proof then look up the latest arc in the manga; while he shows massive concern for Tama at some point, it's also clear that he's not interested in her romantically, as he says something VERY IMPORTANT to another girl of the cast. Won't say who 'cos I don't wanna spoil anything.

Noooo, it ISN'T a Western thing. Japanese fans are the ones who started this trend by pairing anime couples up. Doujins, fanarts and fanfics are termed as such from waaaaay back. Waaaay back! Sorachi definitely knows! All mangaka know about characters who got their names melded together make up the intended coupling.

I agree both Gin and Tama's names aren't supposed to be taken out of context. The title of our manga, GinTama comes from Gin + Tamashii, where Tamashii means soul, while Tama's name was given by Kagura because when she first picked her up from the rubbish basket, she thought her as a tool for breaking eggs, egg = tamago in Japanese, hence Tama.

Sorachi plays with a lot of puns to make the story hilarious, so coincidences like that are bound to happen.

I do like Gin and Tama's chemistry! But she's a robot, and obviously I don't think Gin is romantically interested in robots either.

Actually I wasn't talking about pairing anime characters up, making doujins, AMVs, slideshows, fanart and fanfics, but putting their names together to form a single term, such as Gintsu (Gintoki x Tsukuyo) Gintae (Gintoki x Otae) Okikagu (Okita x Kagura) etc. Sure the Japanese fans catched up with that now, but I'm pretty sure it started all in the US (Brangelina anyone??).


As for the girl

That's exactly what I meant. In Doujins in Japan and fanarts, fans have melded pairings' names together from waaaay back. You have Doujins and Fanfics by Japanese fans who termed pairings as Cargarth for Cargali x Arthrun since the 90s, and IchiRuki for Ichigo x Rukia, etc. for the more recent ones for example. Melding names for couples have been in existence since way before Brangelina >_> ALL mangaka KNOW this. I'm 100% sure. Practically all doujinshi shops in Japan stock their inventories with pairings (including hentai stuff) using portmanteaus of each character name with the other. I've been there many times.

THANKS!! I couldn't find the released English chapter for 376? So I went and read the Japanese raw for it.

you can check on it. Then if that's not the actual meaning I wouldn't know, but lots of Japanese people have seen all these translations and none of them pointed out what you're saying.

I'm not saying you're making things up. I'm saying that the translation isn't meaning what the original Japanese texts mean. Again, zashiki is a room with tatami mats. It's where you serve guests.

Gintoki knows what happens when Tsukuyo gets drunk during the last time they were in there. It makes a LOT of sense when he said "After this is over, whether it's to hell or to a zashiki I'll hang out with you." It means after it is all over, he's willing to be taken to hell or to be taken to a zashiki where she beats him up after she gets drunk. He knows she can't drink.

I LOVE GINTOKI AND TSUKUYO.

Granted, Yoshiwara women serve their guests in these rooms. They pour their guests sake...among 'other' things. But the last time Tsukuyo showed a bare shoulder, Gintoki yelled at her. I'm pretty sure he meant he's willing to get beaten up after she gets drunk and not that he wants to have sex with her or anything.

I wonder why they translated it like that though... very misleading for us poor GinTsu shippers who don't understand Japanese and can't compare with the original

Yeah the line can be misleading for shippers, but it wouldn't mean much to people who aren't. I don't blame the translator but I think he/she took the meaning too liberally and applied his/her own interpretation to it.

I try to be as objective as I can. Maybe next time when there's a GinxTsu scene involved I'll check up on things secretly. (secretly because people usually look at shippers negatively)

Tsukuyo. deffs her.
I don't know, it's just that they completely balance each other.
If anyone suggested Kagura, it's freaking impossible because Gin would have to be a pedo to like her. I mean, she's immature and she still looks like a child for her age. I think Kagura and Gin would be more like a father-daughter relationship because she almost always imitates Gin-chan's manners and habits.

I'd go hands down for Gin x Tsuki, they seem to be in a similar wavelength which makes them perfect for each other. (I used to go for Gin x Otae until I reached the Yoshiwara arc)

As for Gin x Kagura, I find their relationship as that of a father-daughter one as seen in the arc when her real dad wanted her to go with him but rather she called out to Gin about wanting to stay in Edo instead.
