Gintama is my absolute favourite series of all time! I love this gloriously picaresque series. The hilarious rhapsodizing, the fantastically wacky and lovable cast of characters combines the wonderful style of Japanese manga with the hilarious, physics and logic-defying wackiness of my favourite cartoons: Freakazoid, Animaniacs and the setting reminds me of the beautiful open universe containing endless possibilities for humour and stories of Futurama. It does all of this while being it's own unique series. It also offers more than just humour, there are crowning moments of epic and there are wonderfully serious, thoughtful and even heart-breaking moments that set off the general tone of levity in the series. It's everything I like and I adore all the characters. I can't help but completely gush. Whatever anyone else thinks of this series, I will always find it PERFECT! FLAWLESS! LULZY in the extreme! ^.^ Seriously it is the greatest series ever and I find it genuinely and sincerely PERFECT.

It's nifty - the humour is pretty charming, poking fun at various aspects of the typical themes of the genre of certain mangas.

The series overall wasn't enough for me to keep me reading, but I do recommend it if you fancy a laid back kind of read and feel the need for a quality chuckle. No harm in trying it!

This series is definitely one of my most favorite manga ever! The gag is it is surely one of the best! If possible, I recommend you watch the anime too! It's very well made and the voice actors 's voice acting is really funny and nice to hear. I laugh in every episode!
I mean you should try this out, seriously! You won't regret it! >3<

This series is so amazing, the manga as well as the anime.
I can't help but shake with laughter, I love the parodies in it! The silly humor is precisely my sense of humor. Though the comedy dominates, there is action and there are heart-touching stories! 10 outta 10!

Plays its cards really well   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

This manga is one of the few mangas out there that is great because of how well the mangaka knows how to play his cards with comedy. The reason why I am giving this manga a very high rating is because of how the mangaka is really devoted to staying loyal to the comedy gag genre, despite it also being an action shounen. I admire the fact that the manga maintained and developed its comedy level throughout the years.

I give this 9/10 because of how well the plot is played out in a hilarious gag way, have no fear you wont be cheated with this manga, if its a gag manga then you wont find any dramatized and whiny arcs, this manga is all laughs and comedy even when the plot is supposed to get serious.

EPIC characters, Incredible comedy, Badass arcs, Great action, Amazing storyline...
It's the epitome of randomness and delightful absurdity.

GINTAMA FTW !!! <3 <3

Plus, the Anime is epic just as well. Mindblowing !
Special mention : The ost is just PERFECT !

I don't read the manga, but watch the is INSANE...IT IS IN MY TOP 5 ANIMES '(1. one piece 2. Naruto 3. GINTAMA 4. hitman reborn 5. bleach/d-grayman)..... gotta say the one who made this is a genius, why? simple it's funny, random and they can be really serious sometime when they are fighting. As much as i like the jokes the fighting scenes are always insane. p.s my mum always call me crazy, when i'm watching this, why?! 'cause i can't stop laughing when watching GINTAMA, it's just too funny

There are many many shounen series that start off leaning heavily on the comedy crutch before they gain a plot, and then when they try to dabble in comedy again it doesn't work at all. Gintama is not one of them. Instead, Gintama dabbles in plot as a way to set up and bolster comedy. The humor here is subversive, silly, sometimes gross, often breaks the fourth wall, and makes fun of everything indiscriminantly, especially Jump and shounen manga itself. The arcs, what arcs there are, are just short enough so that they don't wear out the reader's patience if they're not the type to enjoy shounen cliches (and there are cliches, this is still Jump). The characters are likeable - this is not the type of manga where the characters evolve in any significant way so you have to like them as they are. However, it's like hanging out with your old friends when they're this familiar. Highly recommended
