Come along for a time travel adventure with Gintoki
Hello to the Gintama fans I know we have a few of them out there that follow us on Metanorn, but even so this was one of the best movies for me of the year because the team behind Gintama always has excellent comedic moments, great drama and kick ass action. I didn’t upload a youtube video because it would be over an hour and fifty minutes long. However, you can download the torrent if you want to hear us talking while watching the movie. Just a note, you will enjoy the recording more if you are watching the movie with us rather than just listening.
Oh lord, finally a proper Gintama post on Metanorn, and it’s about the movie which happened to be one of the best things that ever happened in 2013. Despite the movie being a standalone, the movie managed to squish itself into the Gintama timeline without having to ruin the entire story. Even better, that Gintama sense is still there in the entire movie, not making us forget how the original series is like (another reason why mangaka should be involved in such projects). Definitely one of the best original movie that was made under Sunrise and Shounen Jump’s belts. Those who haven’t watched Gintama should definitely try watching this movie. Who knows, you’ll be hooked with this
. And I bet many will.
Oh, where should I even begin? I absolutely adore Gintama and I’m so glad Fosh and anaaga pushed me to finish the anime (last year) and I will soon be moving to reading manga because damn, I can’t wait for another seasonal adaptation, which might be late. If you are wondering if you can watch this movie as a stand-alone, you can, but you will definitely miss a lot of references but if you like what you see in the anime (don’t judge it untill you have watched at least four episodes because first two are just trolls), you can still give this a go after finishing at least season one. You might not know who Tsuki, Kyubey and other older friends of Gintoki but the humour and truckload of anime references will keep you glued to your screen.
As a fan, it might be my bias talking but I loved this movie with anime-series references and the way everyone grew up or changed with time (some bizarre like Elizabeth to fun like Okita Battosai!). The matured Kagura you can already see in the screenshot below but damn, the best straight-man turning into a megane bishie was quite rewarding for a while. Also, let’s not forget Gintoki’s so-called disguise, another running joke beside the old Kintoki one. This movie continued to entertain me till the last minute with Gintoki’s entire harem showing up with not only laughs but emotional moments as well. No wonder I was highly amused to see four Gintama releases present in MAL’s Top 10. Even if I don’t generally agree with MAL ratings and HELL NO for recommendations but this shows the masses’ ratings and love for trolls. Yes, be trolled and love Gintama.
Extra Gintama fun
Seriously these faces are great.
Kagura with boobs is crazy…
Hell ya! BEST OTP!
Something for the girls to drool over.
Thanks for the memories
I hope we see more of these three in the future.
