In regards to anime, sure, but there's still a lot of references to stuff only the Japanese would know, such as comedians and Famicom games that probably were never ported to the US.

Read a 4koma
Half of the jokes are based on japanese puns.
Almost every page has a line saying "You'd get this joke if you could read moonrunes. It's hilarious"

Anime references are simple in Gintama, it's almost all really popular WSJ stuff.

The hard part is getting the general Japanese pop culture references from variety shows etc.

Not recognizing Gundam,DBZ,JoJo,Laputa,Dragon Quest,HxH,Bleach,One Piece,Sentai, and other entry level references
If you were to say you dont get the cultural and Japanese Tv star/politics references thats fine
Like this nugget for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPnkJJnla4k

Please, even Gintama's non-manga/anime references are easy.

Time to come clean I guess.

I've never actually watched a shonen anime other than the first fifty episodes Hunter X Hunter, and the evangelion rebuild movies.

only a few episodes and the manga are hard to grasp. The rest is not all too hard if you took basic socioeconomic classes.

Sunred is probably one of the few series out there that have more IRL references than anime/manga ones.

@Deadlyinx
Nonomura was actually pretty easy to get since it was such a direct parody and the original case became famous around the internet. The stuff like Cris Matsumura Othello is where people with eleven 3DPD knowledge have the upper hand.

After watching variety shows for few years, Gintama's rewatching value got a lot higher for me. There are a lot more 3DPD references than people actually think there is.

If it's a good show, it's gonna be like Pratchett's books. You will enjoy it without all the references, and then with you slowly building up powerlevel, you will be coming back to this show again and again, each time enjoying new things in it.

Nope, Joshiraku specifically has more references to Japanese life and culture. Gintama has a lot, of course, but nobody can compare to Kumeta in this aspect.
