You've seen the big ass fanbase for one piece though? I read it all but I still can't get hyped for new chapters. How does that have more fans than Gintama?

King_Martha

Still has regular threads, still has good sales, still has plenty of doujins/fanart being made, still has inexplicably high ratings on MAL. You're probably projecting your declining interest on others, it's not an overly hyped show to begin with.

Not going to happen, Sheeky Forums only can talk about shows that have 13-52 episodes. Anything past that rarely gets sustainable threads

Gintama threads aside from random shiposters barging in and going "mal shit, or isn't this japanese family guy?" are probably some of the most on topic and shitpost free threads on Sheeky Forums.

Poker_Star

It's just there.
It's still alright, I enjoy it but there's not really much to talk about as it's on all the time.
There's always the odd thread about it though
I know one piece still gets discussion but it feels like more extreme shit happens in it.

Gintama also isn't as polarizing as something like say Evangelion which gets threads every day.
I'm quite happy with the status quo, it means there's not as much moronic shitposting.

@Poker_Star
I think it also has to do with the episodic nature of the series. I like gintama and one piece almost equally the same but there's a lot more topics to discuss about one piece in general because of how the story's structured.

askme
askme

@Snarelure

It's just that Gintama is very hard to get into especially if you can't get past the first twenty episodes and there are many references that you won't understand unless you're japanese.

@Stupidasole

what?

@Bidwell

Yeah I know. I'm still surprised how someone manages to post on every single HxH thread "Killua is cute!"

Fried_Sushi
Fried_Sushi

@askme
And there's just a lot more shitposters in the threads these days too, especially since most of the threads themselves have the shittiest topics that attract shitposters. Not sure if it's the newfags or just baiters but some of the threads they make are just retarded and asking for it.

Methshot

I am. I am still watching and reading Gintama.

There isn't a lot to discuss about the series. A lot of people don't read the manga and there isn't a lot to speculate about in the chapters that do come out. The threads always end up being the same with the same opinions and questions.

It's better this way. It really is.

I'm not too sure about this. We seem to get SZS threads fairly often and that's even more intense than Gintama in terms of Japanese references yet so many /a/nons love it.

Gintama is comfy, you are happy watching it, even when a sad or dense arc comes. Sometines is nice to talk about it, sometimes you just feel like not talking about and is not a big deal.

Techpill

Unlike a lot of other long running shonen manga, there really isn't anything to speculate so there's not much to talk about.

I think most speculation is done on yorozuya soul and most people are waiting for the serious arcs before posting. Not much to talk about with where the anime is atm.

Gintama has never really had big threads on Sheeky Forums often. I don't get from where these people worried about the lack of discussion came from. I guess you got into the show right before the current season?

@Firespawn
So how many faction are fought over the earth now ?
Harusame, Kihetai, shogunate, the new hitotsubashi or whatever the name is.
Did I miss something ?

Booteefool

@RavySnake
Hitotsubashi are just dolls of the tendoshu which collaborate with the harusame. Kihetai broke collaboration with harusame and are going to be destroyed. Takasugi is with the kiheitai. Takasugi is missing . Gintoki will go find him.

The new season has been mediocre at best. The story arcs seem to have reached their lowest point. Some have been just plain boring.

I think that new director isn't making a very good job - it's really mediocre. Still, I enjoy watching Gintama, cant wait to see shogundiesarc.

@DeathDog
I agree, the previous series of Gintama weren't just carbon copies of the manga panel per panel, they had some love from the staff put into them as well, biggest example would probably be the first episode of degree.

girlDog

@Firespawn
New studio's production values suck, feels like it has a fraction of the budget. Feels even worse than toei at times, full of quality, no animation.
New director is shit, carbon copies the manga, doesn't have the same feeling that sunrise director gave it.
Mangafags can't stop sperging out over super serious arcs in the manga, derailing and spoiling people in every thread.
A lot of people gave up since how bad Echousen was, probably read the manga.
Most people noticed all these things, causing a general sense of apathy toward this season of it. Especially on Sheeky Forums, like @Illusionz
said. Other forums probably haven't even noticed the studio change, they enjoy eating shit constantly that Toei/Pierrot shits out..
Frankly, the 2 year anime hiatus killed it. Now the anime is also mediocre too.
Gintama is slowly dying ;_;

Gintama don't really have active threads, even back when the 2011 series aired.
There was time when Gintama threads are popular, but it was filled with people shitposting about how "Gintama is untrollable". I'd rather have no thread at all than that.

So
Tendonshu is the elder of the alien, where shoyo came from.
They work with space pirate harusame.
Kihetai broke their cooperation with harusame and they are on wanted list.
And to summarize
There are two faction :
Human (Kihetai, gintoki, shogunate) vs Tendonshu+Harusame+Human(hitotsubashi)

Am I correct ?

Is that true, Sheeky Forums?
