The Gintama has anime made a habit of apologizing for going away and for returning. Well, it returned last week for the first new TV episode since March 2013's "Dog Food Doesn't Have As Much Flavor As You'd Think." The 266th episode, "You can never Pause at the Perfect Time" got the ball rolling with a spoof of Ryutaro Nonomura's meme-spawning, tearful July 2014 apology.
