Gintama 2?A long anime can get exhausting at times, but in Gintama, I've enjoyed every episode with the hope that it will never end. Of course, such a sympathy bomb must also end one day, this is inevitable.This season is still one of the better Gintama seasons from the "golden Gintama times" before the mediocre main plot took over the episodes.You get a full load of humor, idiotic behavior, and wonderful entertainment here again. This is what sets Gintama apart for many. No detailed story, no profound characters with great ambitions.Indeed, Gintama is not an anime for people who prefer "detail or plot" and that is not what we should look for here. This anime is still just a humorous parody shounen that only develops a plot towards the end.However, some "Serious Arcs" are included here, which are so adored by the community. I have to admit that they were a bit better than their predecessors, but in general, they were only slightly above average. The approach is simple, the implementation is normal, but the scenes are again drawn out. And as expected, Gintama has not given up his penchant for melodrama. I love Gintama and think that this anime can be dramatic and shocking, but not when he tries to rub it under your nose. They often try to enormously pull out various dramatic scenes and chew through them for as long as possible. And this is exactly what ruins the atmosphere and tension. It is unclear to me whether this is only the case in the anime or whether the manga also did it that way.Apart from that, the humor this season has been amazing again! In all honesty, it's so rare that an anime really manages to make me grin or laugh. Gintama just knows how to use "nonsense" and "character-related humor". Especially since you've known the characters for so long through the episodes and just thinks "Oh god, what's that crazy bird doing next" and it's always a surprise. The two high-flyers are still Hasegawa and Katsura, who probably produce the best humorous scenes.You can't say much about the characters, there have been some new ones who are mostly average and only have slight traits that correspond to the typical Gintama level.As expected, the usual familiar faces are still complete clowns and failures of society. Exactly those failures whose everyday life sustains our lives.Of course, they are not written in-depth or excellently. However, they are complex, personable, and have tremendous personalities.I could write more about the respective characters, but that would not lead to anything.The animations are still above average and can maintain a certain level, even if this is not particularly remarkable. But still satisfactory for such a long shounen. Musically, the series is held by the same well-known Osts. There are also some new and pleasant intro songs.Gintama continues to be a work that can either be loved or hated thanks to its bizarre content. For me, it is by far one of the strongest and best character-related comedies I have ever seen and has an excellent implementation in this area. If Gintama were all a comedy without a plot, I could have given more points. Unfortunately, the serious arcs keep dragging the streak down.
