Of course not. The shinsengumi lead quite miserable lives, and especially the shinsengumi in Gintama. Look up their actual backstory, that's some depressing shit. But it's not like the ACTUAL history matters in Gintama.



The Shinsengumi had little support from the common folks, when Samurai/Ronins did. From what I know, the Shinsengumi at one time became turncoats for personal ambition, it's hard to have even a little sympathy for such people.

I can paint the history from the anime's satire of the time period, the shogun was useless, just a puppet on a string and the people behind the shoguns were working together with foreigners and the endless civil wars.

A person only needs to watch the anime with an analytical mind, otherwise they will find this anime to be random and not very entertaining.




uhm but it sure makes me think about a lots of things that happened in history. Like the opium war

Whaaaa? Pretty sure Gintama is suppose to be sad at times; most arcs always have serious moments.

I have a general idea of the history behind that time period, however I would not say it is a very important aspect of the show.

I think Gintama has an excellent mix of drama, action. comedy - very few series do it as well
