It turns out, Kanna really is Kagura. She can now transform from being a little girl to an old woman in a matter of minutes. Sorachi hasn’t explained how she manages to do that yet.
I am sure Umibozu would love to learn this trick, turn back into a teenager and flaunt his hair.
Kagura didn’t find a way to heal Sadaharu. She felt bad about returning to Yorozuya without achieving anything. So she lied about being Kagura’s daughter. To be honest, it is an extremely stupid thing to do. Lying about being Kagura’s daughter and causing all kinds of problems to Shinpachi is way worse than admitting that she hadn’t found a way to restore Sadaharu.
It is a little amusing how Shinpachi had no idea that Kanna is Kagura but Sougo seemed to see through her lie almost instantly. On the other hand, even if she really was Kagura’s daughter, I am sure he still would have loved to fight her and push her into a corner. He forced Kanna to fight with him and made it impossible for her to defend against him in her little girl form. She had to turn back to her teenage self to protect her life.
Gintoki was searching for Takasugi. He even drew a nice little drawing of him to show around. Take a look at it.
This episode had a lot of fighting and Gintoki even threw a fit about Takasugi interrupting his serious cool-talk.
Here is another interesting piece of news. Apparently, Gintoki can’t swim.
I am having a difficult time believing this. Remember the time when he got thrown into a river after being mistaken for a father who abandoned his kid? He was floating in the water just fine and holding a conversation with Sougo. He also jumped into the sea to save Katsuo after Pirako shot him. He wouldn’t have survived those ordeals if he didn’t know how to swim, unless he found a random giant dead Shogun life buoy that is.
Gintoki plans on saving Utsuro. He finally found Utsuro’s heart after searching for two years. He is probably trying to revive him. Remember how I said I wanted someone to apologize to Utsuro before killing him off? Reviving him and making him live a normal mortal’s life is way better than an apology. I really hope Gintoki revives Utsuro.
See you next time ^^/
