Gintama ends.

Gintama

… and Gintama ends at 201 episodes over 4 years of airing.

Since I picked it up in it’s second year, Gintama has been consistently the most funniest, random and sarcastic series ever. While it’s a shounen anime technically, it NEVER takes itself seriously, except maybe in moments of serious.

With a cast of minor characters that ever keeps growing but never overstaying their welcome, Gintama was truly a fun show to watch and keep up with. I am pretty damn impressed in fact, at how they’ve kept their humour fresh all this while, with the cast poking fun at everything in pop culture. I think it’s probably harder to think of something they haven’t poked fun at than the other way round.

Man, I am so going to miss this show. That’s one consistent, weekly dose of laughter gone now. Durr hurr hurr :(.

Liked: Extremely (9 out of 10)
Rewatch: Maybe I should start back from the beginning and watch one episode a week till the show resumes back.

    Holy shit, I thought it was one of those usual ‘oh yeah, we’re being cancelled’ gags they pull every now and then.

    Actually, being about 100 episodes behind at this stage, it’s almost a relief to know that somewhere along the line it will end

    There’s no more Gintama since Sorachi died back then in the 180s popularity poll arc.

    I… am not buying it completely. There’s still those “more than reruns” starting next week, rumors of a Ginpachi-sensei adaptation and, of course, the rumor of it returning by the Fall, perhaps with a catchy subtitle (Gintama Shippuuden, please?) and 16:9.

    Yeah, I am totally in denial.

    I don’t believe it’s over yet either! it may be off the air for awhile if it’s not back next week but it’ll surely return, returning in 16:9 sounds very plausible!

    NO, just no, I’ll never accept it ,there is no way there is a pen….I mean there is no way that Gintama ended.

    I’ve been following gintama for 3 years (currently on episode 175) and it had many great episodes (I liked that no matter how serious the situation is there is always room for laughs), this sadden me greatly.

    Needs more DONDAKE !!!!

    I don’t believe this one single bit. This show is definitely not over, until someone shows something new on their time slot.

    I am actually gutted. I was very late to the Gintama bandwagon – only discovered the joy of the series last year; but the week will be that bit duller without my weekly dose :(

    Hope it comes back soon!

    I won’t fall for such tricks, remember guys April Fools day is coming… Gintama Anime will return next year of April 2011 (it depends on how their movie would do)

    March 26, 2010 @ 2:45 pm

    WHHYY I really hope this is a April Fools but have my doubts since Gintama anime caught up to the Manga if Im not mistaken. Hopefully its just a break and a small one if not then there goes the best anime show there is. Gintama <3 FOREVER.

    I believe it has ended for now, or put onto hold, until like alot later. Check wikipedia, the show ended on March 10, 2010

    […] small reminder. For those who have been watched episode 201 of Gintama, Gintama is not ending, nor it is in the hiatus. But […]

    You know Gintama does this after EVERY end of a season. xD

    Besides, if Gintama ends, I’ll just kill myself.

    Gintama Come back !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    darn there goes another good Quality anime I wish that they do return next year cuz this is the best anime EVER!!!!! I will always remember gintoki picking his nose and saying It was just a joke but sadly this is the first time they had no indication that the show will return and when contrary to how they alway’s done it in the past reminds me of how school Rumble got dumpeD!! since they really did had the right for the third season but sadly they ended it just like THAt and showed the ending of the series through OAV which was sad and that was also one of the funniest anime I’ve ever seen

    what the… Gintama can´t end ,it can be a season ending or something cause the anime is reaching the manga and the manga is getting more and more interesting hope that to be but… if so they also could use fill chapters or use the chapters that they have not used from the manga… but not and end

    What a load of bullshit. The most retarded and boring show i’ve ever laid my eyes on. Keep masturbating on it if you wish, oh ye with little taste.

    Now this really blows… I loved watching every episode of Gintama, from 1 to 201…
    I just think it CAN’T be the end because…

    WHERE IS KATSURA!?

  20. Kyo Kusanagi Said,

    March 27, 2010 @ 8:40 pm

    ya where the hell is Katsura ?

    I kinda forgot he was not featured in the final episode

    @that aszhole karry

    what the hell is a guy who doesn’t like gintama commenting here anyway just watch hentai and masturbate U Fucki’n Idiot

    I personally thought all this time, and still continue to think, that what ended wasn’t gintama, but gintama’s traditional 4:3 aspect ratio. I mean, think about it, all the hints.. Remember when the theme song of “we’re the only ones who use 4:3 at this age” was on and gintoki’s “random” comment on the fact that digital TV (16:9 1080p…) is going to start its permanent airing since 2011. Also, I just got this idea from one of the comments, but this could seriously be it.. Maybe Gintama will reappear in 2011 (as said by gintoki) on April 1, just so they can make a funny joke about a fake ending and then pick on the fact that they accidently got the wrong april fools (a year late..!). Also, this would mean that the staff would have aterial to work on, because the manga would move forward more or less within a year =). I don’t know if this is denial or just fake hopes, but Gintama FTW!!!

    So much denial in this post.

    Oh well, Gintama’s probably going to come back later, once they’ve got enough material from the manga to catch up to.

    For now, the production team and the artist deserve a well-earned break.

    The way it ended, this time it sounds a bit more serious than the other times.

    But where the hell was Katsura and Hijikata? How can Gintama end w/o those two?

    Probably they’re on a hiatus, and I m sure its a prom trick for the upcoming movie (less than a month to go).

    Yey! I’m so happy when I read that Gintama is not over yet! I hope it will come back soon.
    Otherwise I will be missing it forever. The manga is not just the same about the anime, since the anime have voices and moving pictures!

    <3<3 Gintama!!

    This is crazy.
    Has Gintama finished?
    right now its July, we’ve had nothing.
    Half of the fans have given up hope.
    I’ve half-lost-faith in this too.
    Will it really return?

  34. I-Seek-To-help Said,

    July 17, 2010 @ 12:50 pm

    Impossible, please read what it says.
    They think it will return next year April.
    Until then, you needa keep a firey heart!
    Watch Detective conan for a while, it has loads of episodes. and should keep you satisfied until Gintama comes out again.
    All those other fans need to wait, Gintama WILL return!
    That is THE best news for most anime!
