Anyone else suspect Gintoki is his son?



Katsura did say Gintoki was the one who was hurt the most(episode 61).

And what did Shouyou-sensei do? He just found orphans and taught them the way of the samurai? Technically, Gin is following in his footsteps(Shinpachi and Kagura). If Shouyou was a strong fighter, then it'd run in the family also right?

Ok ok! We never seen his eyes so imagine this:

I don't think Gintoki is Shouyou-sensei's son. Haha, even though they look alike---their personality is totally off. I think Shouyou-sensei is more related to Katsura... I remember in some episode, Gintoki said he was born with no parents (arg! I forget what episode it is!). Maybe Shouyou-sensei adopt Gintoki and teach him the way of the samurai?

Don't think so,
And as said before, Gintoki always says he hasn't got any parents, but I do get you point though, they look alike but that's probably just a coincidence.

What they said. Also, Sorachi's characters seem to look pretty much the same for the most part so going by resemblance is kinda pointless. X)

i wish sorachi would reveal a little more about gintoki's past. the suspense is killing me. what exactly happened that made takasugi go insane, and should have made gin-san hate the world the most, as katsura puts it?

i thought that too some time ago... but the thing abridgedgirly points out its true...

so there must be something else.... maybe he (gintoki) was his first, more skilled student, eventhough he didnt show interested in going to school, like in that ending song when everyone is showed as children.

maybe gintoki was so alone and not interested all the time that this caught shouyo sensei attention, and he cared more about him, specially after know he killed all those corpses by himself.

ok guys. gintama is funny and all but you will have a better understanding of it if you knew the history of japan well. So we all know that alot of the characters in gintama are based off of actual people right? Takasugi Shinsuke= Takasugi Shinsaku, Katsura Kotaro= Katsura Kogoro etc etc. From my research, it shows that both katsura and takasugi were taught in the same school by the same teacher. His name was Yoshida Shouin. I believe this is the person you are looking for, this is probably the closest match to Shoyou sensei. i hope this shined light apon some of you confused people
