    Have faith in the reviewers and watch this awesomeness!
    People who didn't find this review useful, clearly did not progress to the later stages of this anime.
    Yes, it starts slow. Yes, the first few episodes are not up to the standards of some other anime. But I promise you now, this show has everything. The fight scenes surpass anime that are focus on battles. The comedy is possibly the best out there, and I have never seen anything funnier from ...

    No Hyperbole: Gintama is a Masterpiece
    I've never read the manga, but Gintama is my favorite anime of all time. No other anime combines humor, action, and drama so seamlessly as Gintama...and all w/ virtually no continuity errors. Sorachi may be a gorilla, but that is one stupid-talented gorilla. One big neo-armstrong-cyclone-jet-armstrong canon up.

    Not Worth Watching 50+ Episodes to Get Drawn In
    I gave this 5 episodes before pulling the plug.

    Fans speak about this show as if one episode will get you hooked. Watched the first episode, nothing.
    Going with my usual review mantra, I watched three. Nothing.
    Personally spoke with a friend who's a friend, he suggested I watch a couple more...still nothing.

    The final nail in the coffin was then being told the show gets "really ...

    The meaning of nothing in Life.
    Having a bad day? Gintama. Having a good day that you can't cry? Gintama. Moral lessons? Gintama. Unique characters? Gintama. A Great Sense of Humor? Gintama. A Spice of Reality life Situations? Gintama. You cannot go wrong with watching Gintama, the voice actors and actress really matched with the characters. For newbies, who are curious if they should watch Gintama or not? You should and why ...

    The legendary comedy to surpass all comedies
    Gintama is pure comedy gold in every possible aspect. The characters are all well-written and creative, the jokes are always absolutely top-level, and for some reason the plot is also amazing. For some reason Gintama isn't as popular as Naruto or Dragon Ball, but it's thousands of times better (I know that's a controversial thing to say, please don't hit me but it's my opinion and I stand by it). ...

    The Reviews Were Right!
    Gintama. It's a series that everyone calls "the best comedy ever." I had to check out the series everyone boasted highly about. The first couple of episodes caught my attention but reading it had no plot discouraged me from continuing. It wasn't until I reached episode 25 that I knew it really was something else. This show has unique characters that always keeps the comedy fresh and hilarious. For ...

    Watch it. Just do it.
    Before I start, this is not an unbiased review. This show has been my saving grace more times than I can count, and I consider it my favorite show. It has made me laugh when I wanted to cry, made me smile when I thought I couldn't, made me feel at home when I was far from it. So rather than compare its merits with its faults (of which I am convinced it has none), I will just tell you that Gintama ...

    It takes up 5 of the top ten anime of all time for a reason
    Honestly a review can't do this long standing adaption justice, so let me say this, you see that review to the right? Look closely at how many people reviewed 1 or 2 stars, on a crappy but popular anime you can see how a lot of people rate it harshly in order to try and compensate for the artificially high score, but with gintama that doesn't happen. Or how about this: ...

    Consistently makes me laugh out loud
    Gintama is one of the few series that is random, features pop-culture / alt. anime references, predominantly witty humor, but STILL surprises you by making you bawl your eyes out in those rare, "strong feels" moments (e.g. Yoshiwara in flames arc). Much recommended It'll be doubly enjoyable if you understand enough of the Japanese pop-culture references to follow the humor.

    Greatest Anime Ever Created
    Best action, best characters, best moments, and of course, best comedy. Some can argue that the show starts of rather sluggishly, but if you can get through that, and get to watching some of the AMAZING action/comedy arcs that the show has to offer, then it will certainly be worth your time.
