… I’m skipping the description here. It’s too much of a pain. I’ll add descriptions of arcs though?
Freeze Time arc
Everyone but Gintoki, Kagura and Shinpachi freeze and they have to try to fix it.
Patriot Reunion Party arc
Gintoki, Katsura and Sakamoto meet up for a Joui reunion held by a member none of them remember.
Everyone swaps genders.
A serial killer is on the loose.
To make money, Gintoki uses Tama.
Soul Switch arc
Gintoki and Hijikata switch souls and have to try to get back into their own bodies.
Sakamoto is captured by a group of pirates
Katsura infiltrates the Shinsengumi and begins to work under the third captain, Saitou Shimura (my current favourite character of the series) who requests help from the Yorozuya.
Feigned Illness arc
Kagura pretends to be sick.
Shogun Assassination arc
Someone tries to assassinate the Shogun so Matsudaira tries to smuggle him out of Edo with the help of the Yorozuya, Shinsengumi and Oniwabanshu.
Farewell Shinsengumi arc
There’s a new Shogun, Kondo and Matsudaira are arrested and the Mimawarigumi are put in charge.
So… this is one of one of my favourite series, so I’d highly recommend it. But if you haven’t yet, maybe watch earlier episodes? It has something, especially the final arc, that’s been an annoyance since quite early on and you won’t get the full effect if you haven’t been annoyed by it yet.
Similar characters with a similar “job” but in a school set in present times.
