I've just watched the first few episodes of this and can someone tell me does it use large story arcs like Bleach or Naruto or more single serving style like Ranma?

Actually the longest arc was the Kyubei intro arc / Fan Club arc / Demon and spirits what ever final arc (all 6-7 eps long).

Thread starter. First 50 epsidoes are mostly episodic - 2 parters. Then the next 50 are half episodic/some 2 parters/some long ep arcs. Then that continues with some episodic, some 2 parters, some full arcs and don't forgot the 1/2 eps (2 eps in a single ep).

They mention old arc's all the time though as the series breaks the fourth wall all the time.

Thanks, that was the sense I was getting. Shame, I'm looking for something more involved.

Like you, I tend to like animes with a plot or at least arcs with considerable length, but it's worth getting into Gintama anyway, it's funny and I consider it one of the best anime's out there.

gintama is definitely one of the greatest anime ever and its shame people don't give it a chance just cause its episodic.

Gintama is by far the best comedy anime in the history of anime. Not only that....but it even excells in other genres...the action is superb...it can go drama at any point in time.....Overall its just one hell of an anime

Yeah I agree with you there, but this show couldn't beat Lucky Star. Take a look at my poll here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-646675/best-anime-parody-ever/. As of this post, Gintama has 3 votes and Lucky Star has 7 votes.
