Damn, that OP looks sweet as all hell. I don't know if it's just me, but the animation in general looks tons better than the 2015 series as well.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like they're going back for comedy, pity because there were some gems in there, but I'm not complaining about Rakuyo either.

I was also thinking the animation looked better than the last season. Maybe it's not just you.

I've read a couple of skipped comedy arcs on the assumption they're probably not getting adapted. At least not all of them. Maybe a few OVAs like the Love Incense arc if we're lucky.

With Gintama I prefer to watch rather than read because the extra elements of acting, music, etc can add a lot to the comedy, but if it's manga or nothing I'm obviously still going to read it.

Definitely, I'd say Gintama's one of the few, if not the only, series where the anime added enough to outclass the manga. I'd watched until around 290 before I picked up the manga. I'm just a very impatient person :face-lol

That OP was amazing. But I'm gonna have to hold off. I find watching Gintama all at once is a better experience.

Same. Although this episode may need to be watched a couple times at least.

There's a lot in this episode.   :jawdrop

Okay, that is by far the best looking I've ever seen Gintama. Though the episode itself could have been handled a little better.

So it seems that this season's 12 episodes are done, and so ends the Rakuyo arc.

The following weeks will be reruns, the announcement of which you'd have missed if you were watching on Crunchy/Horrible as they cut out the ending of episode 12 due to what I can assume to be licensing issues with the upcoming live action movie. You can find a subbed copy of the cut out bit here.

So, what's the verdict on this season?

Thanks for posting that. Wouldn't have known it existed otherwise.

It sounds like they are planning to adapt the rest of the manga, but are waiting for it to finish or something.

I liked this season. There was less room for comedy than usual due to the fucking near final boss-level battles, but it was classic Gintama when they managed to squeeze some in, and the high density of action basically resulting in 10 episodes of climax.
