{G} Welcome to Gintama Vingle Family! -1-

Hi there! It's Danse. One of your friendly

Anime Community Support Guys!

*wave wave, kisses babies, shakes hands*
You've somehow managed to crash land on a small card-Introduction devoted to some loud, nose-picking, naturally permed sugar addict who can't pay his rent yet still manages to land #1 on a ton of character rankings: Sakata Gintoki of Gintama.
Oh, and of course all the other freaks of Gintama. They're important too. :P
If by chance you're here on purpose.... Sup! :D
If you got here by pure accident... that's really unfortunate luck on your part, isn't it?
*snicker* I'm just kidding.... SIT DOWN and stay. >_<
*points to chair, taps foot* ...We have cookies.

As some of you AWESOME people know, Gintama doesn't have a community.

(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻...

These cards are to inform more people about the Crazy Coolness of Gintama,

and to attract more Fans to discussing one of the funniest series ever made.

Gintama deserves more attention, and for 2016 you can bet I'm going to get it....

I'm determined you hear?

Some of the {G} cards I make most likely will contain some spoilers for the series--if spoiling this series that barely has a plot is even possible. [Naw. Not possible.] Don't say I didn't warn you in advance. I'm a nice guy after all. But honestly, it's okay to peek. You know you want too. DO IT.

I'll be clipping these {G} cards in the following collections:


Feel free to follow as I update! Thanks :D

People Who Make Good First Impressions Usually Suck.

I'm a spontaneous person by nature, which means that pretty much all the things I decide to work on [worship] are things that I probably didn't plan ahead of time and are powered by sheer obsession on my part. These cards are my spontaneous and feeble attempt at shrining a character from a massive Jump series that I've loved for years now:
Sakata Gintoki of Gintama.
It's not here to detail every chapter of Gintama or give a play-by-play of different arcs (as a matter of fact, I tried my hardest not to re-read the whole darn series for these cards!), because enough wiki pages and review blogs do that already. My minds a memory bank for this series, no joke.
These cards also aren't here to wax philosophical about Gintoki's hair color, his kabalarians name analysis, or dedicate sections to his appearance that any human with eyeballs can clearly see for themselves. It's not made with Jquery and none of the essays are going to come up in a Lightbox page.
Rather than that, it's a humorous and at times serious look at Gintoki's character, his values, his relationships with others in the series, his still-mysterious past, and other retarded things I felt like including that make him who I think he is. This more likely than not includes potty jokes and jabs at other JUMP series & Historical figures.

Silver Soul

Gintama is a manga created by Sorachi Hideaki, currently serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shounen Jump. Plot-wise it's a bit harder to pinpoint exactly as Gintama is rather episodic in nature, but to keep it general it follows the life of a naturally-permed samurai named Sakata Gintoki during Japan's Edo Period.
Gintoki lives in an era where aliens called the Amanto have taken control of the Shogunate and samurai have been rendered useless due to an anti-katana law enforced by the Amanto. In order to pay the rent and keep himself occupied, Gintoki runs the Yorozuya with companions Shinpachi and Kagura, where the three work as freelancers and take almost any job for any price (and almost always costing them their dignity).
Perhaps to summarize it a little bit better, Sorachi explained the history behind Gintama in Chapter 36 of the manga:
-20 years ago, the Amanto came to earth. The frightened samurai valiantly fought back, but they got their asses kicked. Incidentally, around this time, Gin-san was a bald little baby. After that, the frightened Bakufu decided to close the country off. The Amanto went ahead and built their own terminal, so that they could come anytime they wanted, and also in large numbers. At this point in history, samurai were all over the place, rampaging over the country while they tracked down and killed Amanto. Around this time, Gin-san finally grew some hair (down there).
Soon, the Amanto slid themselves into the Bakufu. The samurai still tried their best. At this time, Gin-san was out and about, living an alternative lifestyle than a normal child. Hey, no, wait, I didn't mean it that way! Soon, utilizing their control over the Bakufu, the Amanto put out an anti-katana law, so that they could easily crush the rebel samurai. The ever-weakening force of the samurai was now barely noticeable, and those that survived still tried their best. Okay. This is the story of the samurai from about a decade earlier. In short, it was a losing battle. Gin-san and his group eventually gave up and attempted to live normal lives, as you can see now.
(Gintama, Vol. 5 Ch. 36)
Gintama runs itself primarily by parodying other anime/manga series, along with video games, pop culture, historical references, or even mocking its own inadequacies. It's probably better known for it's gags and gimmicks more than it is alien invaders, furiously poking fun at other Jump series and throwing in a bathroom joke when all else fails.
Arcs in Gintama are short and concise (the shortest one in the anime lasting a whopping two episodes), and despite being primarily a comedy, has its serious moments as well. Because of this, Gintama's arcs feel even more powerful than those that run for an entire season.
Bringing all this to attention may make Gintama seem to lack amazingly in plot, but fans would beg to differ. Though Gintama may very well be just a collection of Sorachi's one shots, every short story teaches valuable lessons: everything from the importance of friendship and family, to the dilemma of taking a dump while handcuffed to your worst enemy.

Stay Tuned for my next {G} cards.

We are going to have a blast! :D
