    INTRO: What you need to know first
    They say first impressions are important but in the case of Gintama they usually don't do him justice, so before you decide by the premise here's a bit of advice, go by the 3 episode rule and you'll see what I mean, Gintama is by no means your average ShounenJump story. Yeah i know 150+ episodes seems like a pretty big commitment, but ...

    Madness? This is GINTAMA!
    If you're looking for an action packed, power-up riddled, fight driven alternate history sci-fi samurai anime with improbable female anatomy, oversized swords (probably to compensate for the boobage) and crude humor... this isn't it.

    But! If you're looking for a silly, 4th wall breaking, over the top, alternate history parody sci-fi samurai anime with surprisingly accurate anatomy (across the ...

    One of the greatest anime ever made
    Awesomeness is what defines Gintama. A must watch for anyone that is an anime fan. First 3 episodes are a little on the not so funny side but after that it's all out laughing like crazy. Watch the OVA as well as it's an excellent sample of the kinds of things you can expect from this ingeniously written anime. it's not as random as some might have you believe and there is somewhat of a story line ...

    The Southpark of Japan
    Hideaki Sorachi is either a genius or smoking marijuana when he created Gintama. Whatever inspired him has given birth to a never-tiring concept in the shonen genre. An anime that has no limits—It can parody anything. Gundam, transformers, samurai, aliens, ghost, celebrities, idols, and monsters. Dragon Ball, One Piece, Bleach, and Naruto are among the anime that was parodied in Gintama. It can ...

    The Greatest Comedy of All Time
    I've literally never watched something so consistently funny before in my entire life. It has slap-stick, it has reoccurring jokes, it has character driven humour, it has poop-jokes. It even has Shinpachi. If you are a fan of any sort of comedy, give this show a try. You won't regret it.

    I wish I could rewatch the first season, I might need a t-t-tim...time-machine...

    DON'T WATCH THE FIRST EPISODE
    (The first episode is a filler so don't watch it) Unlike a lot of shows nowadays that go from being really really awesome to really boring or dumb, gintama is the complete opposite. We go from kind of a bland show, to a better show, to and even better show, to the best show, to the best form of entertainment I've ever laid eyes on.

    It's a rare find, This series makes me laugh!
    I've seen animes come and go, since I saw my first anime in the early 1990's.. (not counting atroboy) >.>
    After awhile I got bored of the usual animes, (anime with too much stereotypical characters, and lame story-telling).
    But after finding Gintama, this changed themes in anime on a whiole different level. O.O

    I was first weary to watch Gintama... but since watching the first episode, ...

    One cannot simply describe Gintama
    I honestly started watching Gintama because I heard that it has good comedy and I wasn't expecting anything extraordinary from it, but after a while I fell in love with this serie. No anime could make me feel all these emotions, but Gintama. At first glance, Gintama doesn't look special. but let me tell you something; Gintama is a treasure, a piece of art, no I am not even exaggerating at all. ...

    Just 'cos you watch anime doesn't mean you've watched anime until you've watched Gintama
    In short, Gintama has ruined all other anime for me for the rest of my life. This is storytelling at its finest. I could gush over the depth (the utterly unfathomable, beautiful depth) of the characters who are so human you forget they aren't real--samurai, aliens, robots, and villains alike. I could praise the brilliance (and hilariously clever dirtiness) of the humor juxtaposed with the sudden ...

    An Absolute Masterpiece.
    Oh, boy. Where do I even begin to review the colossal anime (in length and in depth) that is Gintama?

    Someone once compared Gintama to a hot pot of anime, and it is probably the best descriptor for it if Gintama can ever be summarized in a mere few words. It literally has everything under the sun (and beyond it, with aliens and all) and seriously everything you could ever want in an anime ...
