About Gintama manga
Gintama is set on an alternate Edo period where the samurai are prohibited to use their swords. The shogunate has allowed Amanto aka aliens to enter their city and, soon enough, control their government.
This bizarre comedy is about Gintoki Sakata, our main character, who is an eccentric and carefree samurai. He tries to earn by running a shop called Yorozuya, which means we do everything/ anything shop. Together with Shinpachi Shimura and Kagura, they set out to help anyone in need, no matter how odd the request is. This series is pure fun and entertainment.
Gintama Anime scored a 9.05 rating in MyAnimeList and fans say that this is one of the best anime in existence and the only one that can make you cry from laughing too hard. The characters are unique and mostly borderline crazy. If you watch other popular anime, you?ll truly enjoy Gintama as it uses a lot of parody and references from trending anime series.
Gintama is the king of comedy.
