Gintama: Serious Story Arcs
Posted 12/7/14
I ain't got time to read 500+ chapters of Gintama.

I was wondering if you guys could list some story arcs/issues that are more "serious" and about Gin's past and stuff, or about Kagura and her family, and stuff like that.

http://www.yorozuyasoul.com/gintama/arcs

That site lists both anime and manga arcs. Personally, I recommend:

Anime:
Benizakura
Shinsengumi Crisis
Yoshiwara in Flames
Red Spider
Four Devas (including the episode after it)
Courtesan of a Nation (really good arc that really goes into Gin's past)

Manga:
Patriot Reunion Party
Shogun Assassination (not listed on that site because it's the current ongoing arc and isn't finished. Worthy of note this is possibly the best arc in Gintama's history. Starts at Chapter 502.)

Personally, I use Mangafox for reading Gintama. You can find it here: http://mangafox.me/manga/gintama/

Hope this helps

imo just reading the serious arcs by themselves doesn't have as much effect as reading the funny parts. like it seems a lot better when it gets serious after you've read a bunch of gag because you're all like "that lazy poop samurai actually has a sad past like this?"

Ughh, you're probably right. I've watched a bit of the anime and went it got to the Benizakura arc I was like

I'm up chapter 20 something, I should just read them all. I'm not kidding anyone, I have nothing else better to do with my time.
