This is perfect comedy for me, because comedy isn't my favorite genre, but I'm going with this, and laugh uncontrollably while reading this XXDDD the only pure-comedy manga that I am really into it!

Bleach, Naruto and then Gintama. This is my favorite anime and manga. Well because it is my favorite, what else I can give to my favorite manga. It's 10.

The favorite arc I like is yoshiwara arc.

PS: did you know the biggest women country/ Red Light District belong to what manga? It is Gintama.

and "Please SUPPORT the mangaka by BUYING the ORIGINAL Gintama manga."- Gintama Fan

Because everybody just read online and not buying them.

I do enjoy this manga, it makes me laugh despite my strange and awkward humour.

But even though it might be a great laugh or not. There isn't any solid storyline or plot that it actually follows. It gains an arc or a short plot at the mangaka's whims but it isn't suggested to people who are looking for a story with a plot to follow. It is more of a sit back relax manga that you can fall back on when you are looking to past the time or have a good laugh.

the story: amazing, it can make a perfect story that integrates Hilarius jokes with it perfectly.
art: great, has amazing add to detail, maybe too much though sometimes.
comedy: amazing, no more needs to be said.

10/10 what less can I give it?

The epic Gintama

From my point of view there is only one word to define this manga. EPIC, yes that's right epic. From the first time you read it you go into a laughing frenzy.

Believe it or not it happens to me. You will learn to admire Gin-san the main protagonist along with the other crews such as the four eyed Shinpachi, alien girl Kagura and many more.

The comedy in this manga is one the best that I have seen before. Trust me when I say you will have a hard time stopping yourself laughing at the jokes. There are also quite a few battles in this manga that i find interesting.

Long story short, if you are looking for a manga that will knock you senseless or just a fan of comedy than look no further Gintama is your manga.

Seriously I Love Gintama!

The characters, Gin and co. and their counter trio the shinsengumi and the supporting ones are hilarious and epic in terms of individual histories. 10/10 Just love the fact that this is an astounding pure comedy manga that makes me laugh my ass off TO THE EXTREME!

And the fights for each of their arcs are so intense!!
I liked this more than naruto and bleach

But hell ya! This is much better...
Not boring at all (^3^)

Most of the posts before mine sum it up: Gintama is probably the funniest manga ever. I hear a lot of people say it doesn't have a main plot/story, but I think it does. It's just not in your face or apparent; you actually gotta look for it.

Try to keep a straight face while reading it. It's impossible.

Update: Absolutely hilarious. Very easy to stop reading for a while then come back to. Funniest manga out there and it is a pity that Viz stopped publishing it. There is a good quality main plot backing up the manga, but it rarely appears. Just sit back and enjoy the ride
