At first I couldn't get into it and started watching something else. But I heard so many good things I revisited it and I loved it! It is my favorite anime and I try to keep up with the manga. I'm so excited about the new season!

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


Maybe I'll try this since every time I try to start I can never make it past episode 2.

I love it, and its probably my favorite anime. cant wait for it to come back. All the gag humor and references to other shows make it a good laugh, and some of the arcs were awesome. (benizakura, red spider, yoshiwara in flames) I think a great spinoff of this show would be Gintoki when he was younger and still a student of Shouyou sensei with Katsura and the others, up through the Joi wars.

It succeeds very well as a comedy, I just couldn't really get into it. Just a little too episodic for me, might continue it in the future when I have a sudden crave for comedy

The comedy is great, but once you hit one of the serious arcs, you'll be hooked forever. If Umibouzu couldn't get you at around episode 40, standby for Benizakura at around 60. Then you'll be dead.
