hello felow anime lovers! I started watching Gintama knowing it is 1 of a kind show, although i enjoyed many episodes, i still find about 85 percent of it boring. I apologize for complaint, but i want to enjoy this series more. Here is a metaphorical compereson - this show is like an ugly girl with a nice booty, but a flat chest. Even though you can double bag girls face, you cant just skip most ofthe canon episodes of gintama.
any tips on enjoying this show would be greatly appriciated. Shouldi dropit eventhough i am 1/3 of the way done? Should i put it on hold and continue watching it after a few months?

Again some arcs are enjoyble (sogo back story with his sis made me feel, piss scene wit kaguras dad made me feel, benzakura arc was cool, but i watched the movie hd version) The problem is comedy I am so bored even though i get the jokes. It is especially boring when they yell, talk fast and argue.

I ought to admit, DONDAKE was halarious....
Part of the problem is that i start watching it with a negative mind set...

THANKS a lot for reading thus far.

Unlike the other long-running shows, like Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach, you won't be completely lost if you skip around. In general, there really aren't any noticeable character developments outside the major arcs, and even if there is an arc you feel like skipping, it shouldn't be difficult to pick up on those changes.

And just so you know, there's a lot of great arcs coming up for you: Kyubei's intro at ep.107; Ryugujo at 115; Ghost Ryokan at 131, with heavy references to the Stands from /jojo; and Yoshiwara in Flames at 139.

Basically, stick with what you enjoy from the show, and skip what you don't.

It literally doesn't get .. if you want to call it serious until around the 200s if I recall.
