Gintama Volumes

Gintama Volumes

Synopsis

The Amanto, aliens from outer space, have invaded Earth and taken over feudal Japan. As a result, a prohibition on swords has been established, and the samurai of Japan are treated with disregard as a consequence.

However one man, Gintoki Sakata, still possesses the heart of the samurai, although from his love of sweets and work as a yokozuna, one might not expect it. Accompanying him in his jack-of-all-trades line of work are Shinpachi Shimura, a boy with glasses and a strong heart, Kagura with her umbrella and seemingly bottomless stomach, as well as Sadaharu, their oversized pet dog. Of course, these odd jobs are not always simple, as they frequently have run-ins with the police, ragtag rebels, and assassins, oftentimes leading to humorous but unfortunate consequences.

Background

Several games based on Gintama have been released on a variety of platforms such as the Sony PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable and Nintendo DS. Characters from the series have also appeared in Weekly Shounen Jump’s crossover titles such as Jump Super Stars and Jump Ultimate Stars.

The series received high-definition reruns of older episodes by TV Tokyo from April 5, 2010 till March 28, 2011 under the name Yorinuki Gintama-san which included 51 selected episodes as well as 4 new Openings and Endings.

Sentai Filmworks licensed and released only the first 49 episodes of Gintama, along with the first movie; in 2016, Crunchyroll gained the license and plans to release the entire series dubbed/subtitled at some point in the future.
