GinTama : The funniest samurai comedy anime!

Gintama DVD

Hello! I’m Mishi who can not get enough sleep if I have a free time. Lol, since I have posted Mr. Osomatsu last time, I told you guys that director of Gin Tama is the same person who did Mr. Osomatsu! I talked about how funny he makes anime! So I thought I should make a review of Gin tama too. (★ゝω・)b⌒☆

Gin Tama is long run comic and anime! This comic has started from 2004 to present. After 2 years later, the Anime was started in 2006. The third season of Gin Tama just finished last month.(2016 30th March). Gin tama is on Shonen Jump in Japan! Next is a story of Gin Tama! m9(^Д^)




This takes place in the Edo period. One day a foreigner by the name of Amanto came from space and invaded Japan. That caused a huge battle between the Japanese government and Amanto.  But Amanto was too strong to beat. Finally, the Japanese government gave up to fight and opened Japan to them. That caused Japanese culture to mix with Amanto culture. Edo city is a still traditional Japanese looking, but technology is added. Computer, cell phone, car, TV and more, they have modern life in Edo  (Edo period started from 1603 – 1868 in real life). So if you can imagine that people from this period living in a modern lifestyle, you are right!

Gintoki Sakata is the main character of this anime who used to be a samurai. Since Japan has lost the battle, the swords of the samurai were taken away. To be a samurai doesn’t make much sense anymore in this era, Gintoki Sakata starts his business as a general store which he takes whatever jobs clients offer. He has two employees to work with. One is called Shinpachi Shimura who has a Dojo to practice the sword,  the other one is called Kagura who came from space. They also have a big dog is named Sadaharu. This anime is for a life of Gintoki Sakata with his friends, his past, and his circumstance.

My Review


GinTama Recommendation Chart

I wrote the story like it was a serious anime, but really it is a comedy anime! It gets serious sometimes and has a moving scene. But usually, each episode has its own story. So that means generally on each episode they do whatever they want to do! This anime doesn’t have a storyline to go along with. All you have to know is his circumstance and his friends….. That is all. Nobody will grow up, nothing will change, sometimes in some episode, the main character won’t show up! This main character Gintoki Sakata looks like he is lazy and doesn’t care about anything but inside of him, he has a heart. You can get to enjoy warm parts and funny parts! This anime is beyond your head!

I like this anime because it has a good tempo to make you laugh! It moves from scene to scene. That makes viewers feel good and make them want to go on watching! Even though you have had a bad day, you think of this anime and it makes you laugh! I recommend this anime to the person who wants to get stress out as watching anime! It will help you to remove some stress trust me!

At last, I have a favorite character. His name is Toshiro Hijikata, he is a member of Shinsengumi which on this anime they are  the police. He always eats  his food with mayo, he takes mayo everywhere he goes. Lol, on a couple of episodes he became otaku and acted like them. That part made me laugh so much! You should check him out if you have a chance to watch this anime!

By the way, GinTama live action movie have been announced! I can’t wait to watch it!

Thank you for reading this post! You can also rate this anime and talk about this anime with somebody below!
