Gintama 265


Yes, it’s over again. For now.

Inevitable, I suppose, given this season was more of a selective re-airing than a true new season. Having caught up with the manga arcs (so I hear) didn’t help much either. Still a miracle I lasted as long as this did, but eventually, even the serious arcs are getting rather stale.

Not so sure if I’ll even watch the fourth ‘season’, if it ever appears. But for now, thanks for all the great laughs!

    Yeah…kinda sad @__@ \I can’t tell if it’s really the material that got stale since Sorachi has really been doing the same stuff for a long time now, or Sunrise’s treatment of the material this time around just really didn’t feel like their hearts were in it. Having to animate a feature length original movie on the side setting the weekly anime series much lower on the priority list. The gags felt rushed and the voice actors felt like they were asked by the directors and production staff to hurry it along.

    I, having watched very little of the original Gintama, thought this last restart was genuine comedy gold. Except for the reruns (which were all still very funny, was very slapped, touched, intrigued, and completely raped by each and every episode. I felt a lot of heart from this last but Shounen-Jump sent us and I definitely look forward to another season. The only reasons I can figure that both of you wouldn’t have similar feelings / reactions to me and many others would be either because maybe the newest arcs were recycled and had re-used ideas from previous arcs (which I didn’t watch), or that the both of you just lack passion and a normal attention-span. No judgement xD, it could be either :D

    The biggest problem lies with the fact that the best Gintama episodes are those that start with that still shot of the outside of the Yorozuya, has the Yorozuya crew lazily bitching about something, and has this as the BGM.

    As far as I can remember, which isn’t saying much since I can’t remember what I ate for lunch yesterday, there aren’t any episodes in this season that start with that sequence.
