Gintama – ep203: Repercussion of Effort

2 Comments

– there’s some obvious upgrades in terms of animation quality (let’s see how long they can keep this up.
– gosh, even though I’m following the manga as well, seeing it in anime again doesn’t reduce the enjoyment value.
– in hindsight, I’m berating myself for not expecting Gintoki to be the only one unaffected, what with all the diligence-only virus
– it’s like that Zombrow episode again! (in a good way)
– sadly, looks like that’s the last we’ll see of Bishoujo Kagura and Moe Kyuubei.
– on the subject of Kyuubei, consider the plight of her and Zurako. Now recall the episode where Gintoki and Hijikata visit the crazy mad scientist of a dentist… let that sink in for a while…
– wait, the virus only affects those who are diligent/ ambitious, hence slacker Gin didn’t get it, but then him getting BanKai means he has been training, so how come he didn’t zomgthisisnotmakingsense…

Any case, in a nutshell:

Alternative idea: “I must Tsukkomi!” “No, Shinpachi, you are the Tsukkomi!” And the Shinpachi was a Wart.

  1. That pretty much sums up this entire episode quite well, it was a nice twist and it kind of all added up, but it felt sort of lacking. Gintoki being unaffected was actually kind of weird, but it sort of made sense by how he lacks any real ambitions and he started off giving the impression that only one year had passed. But shortly after that he extended it to two.

    It really is kind of sad that this will be the last time we’ll probably see some of the characters like this, and I’m particularly going to miss Kagura like this, she probably had one of the hottest designs in the series.

    Also the connection that Kyuubei and Zurako could have had to that episode was one of those things that comes back to shock/hit you a bit later on, especially with what Zurako screamed out during the stroller scene.

    I’m surprised they didn’t start the season with the signature shot of the Yorozuya as well, they even redid it for the movie.

  2. Well, all in all, it’s Gintama; crazy, random and downright hilarious. Hope they start off with the signature Still Image of the Yorozuya again.😀
