This is another episode filled with random comedy moments. We got to see Gintoki, Hijikata, Yamazaki and a fake Takasugi pretending to be mannequins. This review will have a lot of screenshots since there are some really good moments in this episode.
We also learned a lot of random information. Firstly, Yamazaki can fly!
*Mild nudity ahead*
Don’t ask me why he is naked and why Hijikata is running after him with an anpan. Gintoki also had a blast teasing the fake Takasugi. Take a look at their conversation below.
Imagine Takasugi wanting to destroy the world just because he was going bald.
Gintoki didn’t want to let anyone know that he was in Edo. He didn’t know how to face them. He felt bad about wanting to save Utsuro after everyone putting their lives on the line to defeat him. So he decided to use the wig he got from the fake Takasugi and pretend to be Nisesugi, a sorry excuse of a fake Takasugi with two eyes.
All he did was put on a wig and his eyebrows magically turned into black. Either Gintoki is a chameleon or he has a habit of carrying an eyebrow pencil around.
To be honest, Hijikata knows that tailing Gintoki is kind of pointless. He trusts him and knows that Gintoki won’t do anything that can put others in danger. It would have made more sense for him to tail Takasugi instead.
In the next episode, we will get to see all the female monsters of Gintama ganging up on Gintoki for doing something inappropriate to Kyuubei. Let us hope he lives long enough to save Utsuro.
See you next time ^^/
