Gintama is the kind of show that either you do not know of or if you do, you know it to be legendary. No genre of art is as divisive as comedy and rightfully so. Humor is subjective, you may like watching people trip and fall while your best friend might find fart jokes amusing. The point is, people have very different tastes in very different ranges when it comes to comedy. However, and this is my personal guarantee, Gintama has something for everyone. No matter what your sense of humor is like, Gintama is bound to make you laugh.

The show is packed with references to Japanese culture, media, and anime. However, there are enough generally clever jokes, gags and slapstick comedy that make it enjoyable for the casual viewers too. So, if you’ve decided to watch Gintama, first of all, congratulations on making the best decision of your life. Here’s the complete watching guide to the best comedy anime ever.

The first episode of Gintama is, for the lack of a better word, a bit weird. However, do not judge an anime by its first episode. Just click on the next episode, and before you know it you’ll have laughed through the entirety of Gintama and rewatched all of it. Aside from watching the series and movies in their chronological order, you can enjoy the specials separately. There aren't many fillers throughout the show, however, the fillers in Gintama are thoroughly enjoyable and do not hinder the plot. Happy Watching!

Why Is Elizabeth The Most Mysterious Character in Gintama?
There are several characters but no one is like Elizabeth, the mysterious Amanto and the close confidante of Katsura Kotarou.
