Gintama Review

GINTAMA by Hideaki Sorachi

The anime dominated the industry for ten years. It began in 2006 and came to an end in the middle of 2016. The Dash, which ran from 2006 to 2016, consisted of seven seasons and more than 300 episodes of Gintama. It tells the tale of a samurai and his companions who work odd occupations to survive in medieval Japan that has been overrun by aliens. It falls under several categories, including historical drama, humor, adventure, and science fiction. Its plot is episodic. I was drawn to the antagonist Gintoki because he had a tender side while being a sadist. His companions, the charming queen Kagura and aspirant samurai Sinpachi, assisted him in managing his peculiar work. There is plenty of humor throughout the narrative.

With the narrative progressing slowly. It begins with laughter, moves through some heart-pounding scenes, and includes some surprising story turns before ending with tears in the eyes. Although I felt the anime dragged at first, I can’t pinpoint the exact moment I stopped caring about the characters. Then the Gintoki arc showed up and caught my eye. Man-to-man combat is present in this anime. He is a former hero who lost his buddies while fighting for Japan’s independence; as a result, he abandoned his past and now lives as an imbecile who is capable of performing any task. In the anime, several characters appear to be one for an episode, but in the end, every character managed to tie the many plot points together. 

The soundtracks for the film’s beginning and conclusion are a true gem in the rough, and the background music is employed tastefully and complements each character’s personality. As the characters developed, so did the voice actor’s voice.

NOTE: Hang up there, I know it’s a long series but if you will it will be a memory for life.
