Because first 20 episodes are casual filter. And you know how Sheeky Forums has been overridden by casuals these days.

If something needs 20+ Episodes to get remotely interesting there's really no excuse. That's 8 fucking hours of boredom.

No regrets.

Modern-day Sheeky Forums doesn't watch/read non-harem, non-battle shonen, non-sol, non-LN adaptation anime/manga.

I've watched 18 Episodes so far and all of them were a pain in the ass. I was just putting it off as a somehow popular shit show.

@Deadlyinx
Why not just skipped the introduction episodes?
To be honest, I never actually watched the first 20 episodes to get into Gintama. Just watch any episode you feel like watching, different episodes offer different things. Still get the jokes regardless.

Because watching episodes in order is the usual way of watching a show. I don't know anything about gintama, there might be a plot starting somewhere and I would just miss it.

I also wouldn't know which episodes are good and which aren't, need to watch them first to know this.

I swear, every time someone brings up Gintama being unpopular (which is not true), people like you always gloat how totally original Gintama is (which is not true, to some extent) and brag about your superior tastes (which is shit).

Gintama is my favourite comedy anime (and maybe even my favourite overall).

It has highs and lows. Lows such as the slow start, some serious arcs that I couldn't take seriously & dragged on, and Japan-specific humour that I'm not weaboo enough to get.

That said, the highs are definitely worth it. The character poll arc is the funniest series of episodes I've ever watched on any show. I'm a sucker for that sort of 'meta' humour, and there's tons of it in Gintama.

The characters are also very endearing - after 200+ episodes you grow to love all of them.

@Flameblow
It's one of the few anime series that nobody on Sheeky Forums hates with a burning passion, that's a much higher distinction than it being popular enough for constant threads.

Gintama is legitimately the only running anime that is worth it right now, it's that good. All the characters are likeable.

Dumb question but is Shinpachi's sister's name Tae-Chan or Otae-chan? When I look for it online I see Tae chan but in the show people refer to her as Otae-Chan.

Shimura Tae is the real name.

My only problem with the show is that I'm not going to be able to rewatch Eva properly now because I can't hear Gendo without thinking of Hasegawa.

False, they're good comedy on their own but are overshadowed by the quality of the rest of the show

Okay, the hardboiled arc wasn't THAT bad, the 2nd episode really redeemed it. 6/10, because of that shitty 1st episode though

@Stupidasole
I agree, but I think it's because of the new director. There's also been a shift in art style that I'm not a fan of either where the characters, especially the faces, seem more stiff.

If I get annoyed at people explaining jokes so much it ruins my enjoyment, should I just stop bothering trying to get into Gintama? I watched a couple "recommended" episodes and while there was some funny material underneath, the constant, grating overexplaining is unbearable.
