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

it's too funny..i love how the mangaka makes his characters spout nonsense in the has a right amount of seriousness and comedy in it and not to mention that Gintoki is just too lovable as the main character

FUNNY AS HELL. To be honest I don't laugh at every chapter, but I haven't met one chapter yet that didn't keep me at least amused. I also really admire gintama for being an almost completely humour based manga, but be able still end the day with some symbolic meaning.

On another note, I really enjoy Sorachi's character's. I love the main trio and all of the Shinsengumi, they're all really fun and likeable characters, haha.

Great Storyline? Check. Humor? Check. No limitations? Check. Not one stupid character? Check. Comedy? Check. Favorite manga worthy? Check. Rereadable thousands of times over? Check. Fame worthy? Check. Awesome fights? Check.

Gintama is really... the best.. you won't be able to find anything that can top this.

This manga is like HILARIOUS to the EXTREME.
Before I read/watched this I didn't even think it was possible to laugh this much, it always manadges to amaze me at how much of a genius the man who created this is.
This is the without a doubt the best anime and manga ever!
Surpasses Bleach, Naruto, and Ouran - by a LANDSLIDE.
If you don't start this your missing out like crazy.
Nothing else even BEGINS to compare to this
I'm going to cry when this ends... probably as much as when my dog died....
Knowing about this manga makes it easy to choose my favorite
I just can't be completely satisfied with anything else after reading this
really the best word to describe this is: Perfect

When I saw Gintama on any sites like youtube or crunchyroll, Technically This anime has a catastrophe of laughter and action all in one. The Sublime Satire made by Hideaki Sorachi combining the Historical Settings, Science Fiction, Action and Out-of-this-world comedy with a punch of Parodies and TONS of Stupidities here.

Aside from the looks of the Settings, There is no serious storyline out there. It is Made in Pure Comedy, That is COMEDY rich in gags and all of it were pure exaggerations that made this comedy a haphazardly funny.

The Characters were based on the real people who are involved in Japanese History, well said that these characters are cloud-nine wacky and downright insane.

Also some of the habit of one of the characters with a bazooka-totting Shinsengumi First Captain has the sense of being a deadpan.

Remember the Science Fiction and Japanese Combined, The plot is all about the three guys were doing whatever they want to pay up their rents to save the world. Luckily, Aliens came up to their trouble and Shinsengumi, Joi Faction and Kiheitai came in.

Also some songs from the pop idol Tsuu Terakado gives me an insulting gag about what she said.

What can I say about Gintama?

Gintama is not just a silver soul for nothing, It is a UBER-PLATINUM Grade of Comedy under Shounen category with unadulterated Humor and Guiltless Comedy and Pure Shonen JUMP-like Gags that you will never see it before as well there were TONS of Cosplays in Anime.

End note: Love this anime, Laugh this comedy and make a beautiful sunshine of it ala Gintama Style!

Rating: 10 flat

As for you to say, one of the members of Shinsengumi was cosplaying Ryoma Echizen which does not found at the manga

i CAN'T stop laughing when i read gintama
the characters are all so unique n funny
i dun really kno how to explain this but the setting gives the author alot of freedom to basically do whatever he wants - that's why the humor is just UNBELIEVABLE
the fighting scenes are either VERY cool or VERY funny haha.
and the art is quite nice too (and improves as the story goes on)
if you have time i recommend u to watch the anime as well; masterpiece + colour + sound (50+ episodes subbed)
really really like this manga
