As many of us know the Gintama anime will be returning in April. I opened this forum to ask what you guys think about Gintama. Did you finish it? Are you looking forward to this new season? Was Gintama hard to get into? As a person who loves Gintama through and through and it being my favorite anime, I want to know what you guys think about it.

Hard to get into, heard good things about it, but kept on retrying to watch first episode. I will try again because I keep seeing post like this(saying its a great series) and some of my favorite shows/movies were hard to get into at first. For example, the first 10 minutes of the Godfather was boring, but it ended up being one of my favorite series(asides from 3).

I didn't like Gintama at first. I couldn't get into it. I actually didn't really start enjoying it until around 40 episodes in but now it's in my top 3

I've only watched 6 episodes of it, I started back in January but honestly kinda fell off of it due to my already packed anime schedule. I'm going to give it another shot soon, hopefully it will hook me this time. I'll say one thing though, Gintoki is hilariously trollish.

I finished it and it took me a long time since I can't falling asleep for some episodes. I do think it's a very good anime and I wouldn't mind watching the new season.

Gintama is the only one for me

i wonder how far they're gonna animate, because the past ~30 chapters have been absolutely stunning, plotwise and character wise. but before that there's the boyfriend arc and the funeral arc lolololol

well, i will admit i kept falling asleep for the first 20 episodes or so. And it took me like two months to watch all of it. But it really is an amazing series despite the gag. imo the serious arcs have more depth than your regular shounen because you don't expect it in a troll anime like Gintama

I think for a lot of ppl, it would be actually be easier to watch at episode 40-50 to start
you might leave out some background characters, but they are much better than the earlier episodes to get you hooked

once you are hooked, you can watch the earlier episodes whenever you want

When I first started watching anime on regular basis I tried Gintama and it did not appeal. Later with more anime experience and seeing so many favorable references to it, I tried again. I loved it!!

I'm still working my way through all the seasons; am in the middle of season 3 at about episode 130 right now so probably will not finish before the new season starts, but I'll catch up eventually.

Gintama is probably the only show that is just as entertaining with only voices and the Odd Jobs backdrop and no animation whatsoever for many many minutes, as it is when fully animated. The writing is that good, and the VAs so believable as the characters they portray.

Sadly, I have to say that today I watched the first Gintama episode that I didn't like at all and that dragged on forever. I'm not sure I would have liked it better if they had just made it a 1-episode show instead of a 2-episode mini-arc (I didn't like either episode), but at least that would have been 25 fewer boring minutes of wanting it to be over (also, they just started a new OP and ED; I don't like them at all).

I'm in episode 8 and l am loving it. I seen so many references to so many anime and manga, and all sort of media I feeling old. Although what genre is Gintama ? Because I seen all sort of genres pack into one show. I also notice the voice actor are really good. No to mention that I recognize 99 percent of them. I never expected to see Kugimiya, Rie here. I was surprise to see Kugimiya, Rie doing the voice of Kagura.

Now that you mention it, I'm wondering why they decided to start the anime with two filler episodes.

A subtle troll move perhaps?

Watched all of 'em and the movies as well. This show is so funny and VA's for all the characters are so good. Looking forward to the new season.
