I have not laughed this hard in ages. I'm not sure why I found this so freaking hilarious, but I've been laughing for about 5 minutes, and I thought I'd share with those of you who might be interested, or need a good laugh!
So, for those of you who are not familiar with Gintama, it follows the main character, Gintoki, who works as an Odd-Jobs (kind of like a handyman, will do any job you ask), with two main supporting characters, Kagura, and Shinpachi. Gin has a serious obsession with Jump, and the show will constantly reference other shows, anime, and manga. Gin's particular favorite is Bleach.
This is important because in the latest episode of Gintama I watched, there was apparently a hiatus in the show and it had been off air for a year. Now this anime breaks the 4th wall constantly, so the premise of this episode was that it had been two years and everyone had changed, gone and done special training, gotten married, etc... This ended up being the work of a species of alien. Everyone was actually still themselves, the aliens had simply taken over their bodies. At the end of the episode, after Gin has defeated the aliens and turned everybody back to normal, he says that next time the show catches up to the manga and has to go on break, everybody really will train and get stronger.
Well, this is where my gales of laughter comes in.... Gin then says, "well, when that happens.... I'll just go with this.". Cue a blast of blue and black light that looks AWEFULLY familiar and boom...... Gichigo! Or would it be Ichitoki? Either, way, I am still laughing my head off 10 minutes later. Hope you guys don't mind the long winded explanation and thanks for letting me share my entertainment with all of you!
*For the top picture: if you can't figure out which is which, Gintoki is the one that looks very done with the whole situation and kinda sleepy (the one on the left!)
For all my tomodachi out there who are more well versed in Gintama or Bleach than I am, feel free to comment if I misspoke or left something out to clarify for those who don't know! Thanks Mina!
@Danse, not sure if you'd be interested, but I thought you might be!
