Storyline

In the early 17th century, Japan adopted strict isolation policies and severed almost all ties with foreign countries. In 1853, the US fleet commanded by Admiral Perry forced the doors open, leading to a modernization of the nation's sociopolitical systems and the eventual fall of the Shogunate. The samurai regime ended its life with the imperial restoration in 1868. That's what history tells, but in Gintama, that's not what happens. Instead of the US fleet, the country is stormed by spaceships coming from four corners of the universe and soon we see it occupied by extraterrestrials. The Shogunate has become a puppet of alien occupation armies. All samurais have been disarmed and reduced to temp workers with no skills who just try to make ends meet. Gintama is a story of a handyman named Gintoki, a samurai with no respect for rules set by the invaders, who's ready to take any job to survive. He and his gang, however, are also among the very few who have not forgotten the morale of a ... Written by Crunchyroll.com

THis anime is a QUADRILLION times better than Cowboy bebop
22 September 2012 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This anime is the funniest show ever created - not even the simpsons, south park and Family guy combined would have 1/3 of the funniness of this series.

It doesn't have an overall plot - but as a comedy series it doesn't need one - and there are a lot of longer stories which serve to give you spledid action and emotion.

But what makes this series really epic is the fact that it manages to stay funny for every minute of every of the over 250 episodes! At some episodes you simply cant stop to laugh - not for one single second - And this despite the fact that many of the references are aimed for a Japanese audience.

But even without getting all the Japan- related jokes one still has to watch out not to die from laughter! I would give this show a 11 or 12 or 15 out of 10 if I could!
