A manga for manga fans

Much of the humor in Gintama comes from spoofing other anime and other elements of modern Japanese culture. Think of the Scary Movie franchise - best enjoyed when you know the original material they're making fun of. Gintama's brand of brash comedy isn't for everyone, so it's hard to guarantee you'll be laughing out loud in every chapter - but that's this series's effect on me. biggrin

Other than that, the art is nice, and while there's no stable plot, the characters are very interesting. Moreover, the setting and premise of the entire series is so unbelievable, there's enough material for some seriously good story arcs.

i like gintama, it's hilarious. It really is one of a kind that really makes you laugh your butt off. I have laugh so much over Gintama that my stomach hurts. smile
Yeah, gintama is not the type of manga that really have a specific plot or storyline. It's aimed at comedy, at that's what you'll get. biggrin
Sometimes i find it annoying cause there is no plot to the story but i can't help but come back to it. It's just too funny. smile
(and wow! 22 volumes! That's a lot! Whoa! I wonder when it will end?)

Wow I didn't think that I could laugh so much about a manga but it's hilarious. The characters are nothing special but fit perfectly together and the "plot" only provides the setting for the ingenious conversations and nothing more. If you don't like the first chapters, don't bother reading it any further it doesn't change, but I love it.

This is the type of manga where, either you like it or you don't.
And I'm placing this on my list of Godly manga. (Which only has this on it.)
But that's just me.

I started watching the anime at first before going onto the manga. IT IS HILARIOUS!!!! I think it's one of its kind. While I love this series, I have to say it is not your typical shonen action series like Bleach or Naruto. The humour is pretty satirical and I think for those who are not into anime or manga or not well acquainted with the EDO or SHINSEHGUMI period, you might not find it funny at all due to the context of the spoofs and inside jokes. It is a 'love it' or 'hate it' series.
