I share your sentiments. I thought I'd be more excited and happy seeing Gintama getting more and more popular, but somehow I just can't rejoice honestly.
There was once a time where I desperately wanted Gintama to gain more attention and now that its way more popular, I feel empty.

Oh, I still love Gintama as a series and I still love Yorozuya Soul as a special place to share my Gintama craze with people I can familiriaze with but seeing the booming popularity it has acquired made me realize that my desire to see it become so popular was just an insecure means of justifying my love for it :sweatdrop: I shouldn't need Gintama to be recognized by random numbers of people. I should just enjoy it because that's the opinion I formed on my own from watching and reading everything it had to offer :happy:

Then again, I really do enjoy the term "Goatama" used around the internet to summarize how good Gintama is ;D

I love Gintama. I still do and I can say that for certain because even to this day, no other manga has gotten me as excited for a brand new chapter and whatever happens in those chapters than Gintama. No other anime has ever made me so invested and genuinely interested in its production values and made me so absurdly nitpicky over even the tiniest of details than Gintama. Gintama had effectively become the golden standard to me for how I judge other animes and manga of similar genre to Gintama. Its a joy to me that I've retained my interest and love in Gintama for nearly 7 years now.

But when I look back around the beginning year of when I first discovered Gintama and when I first joined this forum, I feel a little sad. Why? Because recently, Gintama has gotten a lot more popular now than it ever was when I first discovered it. Its anime seasons now dominate the MAL Top Anime list, Gintama clips in Youtube are now more numerous in quantity and view count, well known anime reviewers in Youtube like Chibi Reviews and Forneverworld hold Gintama in high regard and had become huge fans of it, and I see a lot more people in comments mentioning Gintama in positive light in other websites. The term "Goatama" is nearly meme levels of saying that Gintama is good in the simplest and funniest way. I have never seen this level of Gintama interest and positivity before!

So Anpanman, why EXACTLY does this make you feel sad? Isn't this a great thing to hear?

Well, mysterious voice in my head. The reason why such a wonderful thing makes me feel a little sad inside is the inescapable feeling of me wishing that I discovered and fell in love with Gintama around this BOOMING period of its popularity. Its like seeing a cute girl you liked who happens to have a certain charm point you felt only you could see and appreciate and then years later, that girl becomes smoking hot and now every guy is trying to get her attention making you feel like you should have tried harder to woo her before.

... Oh, that makes sense... I guess?

Shut up! You're just a voice in my head! I know you agree with me deep down.

I LITERALLY CRIED WHEN SADAHARU RAN OUTSIDE EXCITEDLY AND KAGURA WAS GONE. HE WAS SO CUTE AND SAD.

The pacing isnt fast, it's actually rather normal? Anyway, I didn't talk much about the opening and ending in the previous episode so here.

Kagura's mom is so beautiful okay we shall bow down to her beauty. I also really like that they have a Chinese theme in the ending, since Kagura's family is like Chinese based(?). Not the biggest fan of the songs, but them animations get my feels.

Agh, I've missed the episode yesterday because of a power outage at my home :zucht: Anyway, managed to watch it the day after :happy:

Banjiya Blues got me all nostalgic :drama:

The interactions between Gintoki with the likes of Zura, Nobume and Sakamoto was such a delight to hear. It all felt so natural and conveyed their friendship without feeling so forced and corny :happy:

Nobunobu's theme music is so badass for a villain reduced to a joke XD

Gintoki and Nobume saying that they are acting on their present instead of their pasts was such a powerful moment. Nobume's smile was also really cute :3

I wish the anime retained the 4th wall breaking line of Sakamoto during the fight against Nobunobu like something along the lines of "We'll beat you in a matter of _ scene changes" but other than that, it was a great episode. I haven't read the manga version in a while so I felt no pacing issues and that I felt that the episode had a nice flow O0
