It finally happened! After 333 episodes, something that has been long overdue finally happened. Gintoki is arrested for public indecency.
Gintoki doesn’t look happy about it though
Gintoki should have been arrested for public indecency a long time ago. In Kagura’s words ‘He is a walking obscenity.’ He goes on live TV with his zipper open, walks around the town half-naked, uses a hex socket screw driver to mess around with a spaceship and does a lot of other things that are better off not being mentioned here. A shounen protagonist being arrested for public indecency, that has got to be some kind of record. Way to go Gintoki!
Coming to the story, a sword shaped Amanto was looking for his wife. The wife happens to be a scabbard. He was abandoned by his master and he went from place to place searching for his wife. He wanted to borrow Gintoki as a temporary scabbard. Kagura, Shinpachi and Testsuko didn’t mind lending Gintoki. They finally managed to find the wife but she refused to get back with her husband. Guess who is currently using that scabbard?
The Shinsengumi’s super sadist – Sougo
The scabbard fell in love with Sougo and doesn’t want to leave him. Gintoki challenged Sougo to a fight to get the scabbard back.
If this story made perfect sense to you, it means that you are already used to Gintama’s insanity.
I always wanted to watch these two fight
Sougo is the Shinsengumi’s genius and Gintoki is the Shiroyasha. A fight between these two super skilled swordsmen is bound to be interesting. I assumed that we will never get to see them fight, since Gintoki is on good terms with Sougo. A serious fight between them seemed impossible. If Gintoki is putting his life on the line to pull a sword out of his body, then it becomes a different story. He is going to take his kid gloves off. Sougo is not an opponent he can go easy on. You can be sure this fight is going to be interesting. Sure, you can’t expect a fast-paced action-filled fight but I am sure these two geniuses will show something amusing.
There is one problem – Testsuko broke Gintoki’s sword
I take it back. We might just end up watching Gintoki being torn to shreds by Sougo. I am sure Sougo doesn’t even know what kid gloves are. He won’t go easy on Gintoki even if Gintoki’s sword is broken.
Let us tune in to watch Shinsengumi Chronicles or Zuratama after next week
This episode had a lot of good random comedy moments. Like this one for example.
I am sure Gintoki is the only Samurai who would be greedy enough to melt a good sword and turn it into a frying pan. I am also sure he is the only Samurai who can get attacked by a random sword.
We will get to see a very interesting fight in the next episode.
See you next time ^^/
