As we are nearing the "Shogun Assassination Arc" in the anime series I wanted to create a discussion about it and talk about it's significance.

In my opinion this arc tops all the previous ones for the amount of action and emotion that it was able to display (If you haven't read the manga your in for a treat). I am eagerly waiting for this arc to be animated as it highlights the brilliance that is Hideaki Sorachi's story-telling. Things are about to get serious which is an aspect I love about Gintama because mostly everyone knows it for its comedic tone. But man when it gets serious it will make you question yourself if your even watching the same show. Overall, I am super excited for this arc to be animated I just hope they don't ruin it with poor pacing as it is a very LONG arc.


*EDIT 1 - I misspelled "Assassination" in the title

I doubt it will have poor pacing considering that they're leaving out a handful of comedy arcs that were supposed to come before the Shogun Assassination Arc. They don't really have a choice with their budget and episode spacing for a season.

I can't wait though. I'm really excited for the fights. The recent Saitou vs. Zura reminded me how amazing Gintama's animated fights actually are. I do think that this arc and the future arcs will open eyes. The underlying plot and potential this series has in my opinion is beyond any shounen I've read or watched.

The fights in the manga were amazing! So many match-ups to look forward to and I agree that this arc will get so much attention as it greatly progresses the main plot of Gintama.
