  • Don't be deterred buy they Amanto (aliens)!
    I looked up online what were the top anime's and this anime popped up. So, I looked it up here on CR and read the synopsis and was turned off by the whole alien/amanto scenario. That was a while ago, but just recently decided to give it a try and man was I WRONG not to watch this...IT IS HILARIOUS! watch it and you will not want to stop. So go! Go and start watching Gintama!

  • Loose & found fun love
    One thing that any1 watching this needs to know is that it's a twist between Comedy Sketch show with the same characters... and a sweet story about Friendship and hardships that brings them closer together.
    It's a new adventure everyday! Gintama has the element of surprise at every corner.


    It's one of a kind.

    This series makes you want to laugh and cry, often at the same time.
    I cannot count the number of times this series has lightened my mood.

    In an alternate universe where the world was invaded by aliens, this series is a strange scientific fiction comedy anime that, truly, has no central plot to it. This is what exactly makes it so great. What I love the most about the story is that despite that they're in a country where humans are being suppressed by aliens, ...

    Gintama! cry, laugh, and learn history (somewhat) all in one!
    Gintama is probably one of the few anime i can say that can pull off making me laugh my ass off for one episode, and then make me cry the next. Gintama is an anime above many anime. i would say an all time best for me. definetley a classic in my eyes. If you don't like it from the start just give it some time and adjust to the idea of this parallel universe.
    Aliens. Samurai. Jokes. Intense ...

    #1 Comedy Anime the characters are just Hilarious
    great anime to spend your time on if your an anime watcher dont stop at the first episodes continue to watch & you wont regret it, the beginning is all about comedy but with the time going it will change into more serious and of course the laughs wont stop in some funny episodes believe me.

    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 ...

    An Anime That Literally Has It All!
    THE GREATEST ANIME SERIES EVER.

    A crazy, wonderful setting (a Meiji Era where space aliens rule!).

    Main characters who make you laugh hysterically (which makes you even more afraid for them somehow in the serious dramatic arcs),

    Strong women characters (no weak indecisive females here).

    Some of the best story arcs you'll ever see (Benizakura Arc, Yoshiwara Arc, Popularity Contest ...

  • ones of the best comedies out there.
    While there are more than a few redundant and boring episodes, 95% of the episodes are purely awesome and makes you forget about the few bad ones.

    Since this anime is done for all intents and purposes. I recommend skipping (or fast forward) the episodes where they are rerunning the past episodes or just making jokes about this being their last episode.

    Lack of depth makes for a very forgettable anime.
    7 & 1/2 episodes in and I've given up hope that this will ever get good.

    It's not "bad" bad, just forgettable. Trope, bland, 2-dimensional characters and a slow near-nonexistent plot.
    Genuinely no idea why it's rated so high.

    My best guess is it plays well to 12-year-olds who will overlook it's flaws. To anyone else, you will be left wanting more
