Life isn't easy in feudal Japan... especially since the aliens landed and conquered everything! Oh sure, the new health care is great, but the public ban on the use of swords has left a lot of defeated samurai with a difficult career choice! This is espec

Overall, "Gin Tama" is a series that is unique and a lot of fun to watch.
Dennis A. Amith (kndy)
GinTama is pure genius from beginning to end; I can stream anime for free all day long if I want to, but GinTama I will spend money on just because it is THAT.

All in all I am happy with it, they did what they would said they would do.

Since 2003, "Gin Tama" (which means "Silver Soul" has been a manga series that has entertained many "Shonen Jump" fans. Written and illustrated by mangaka Hideaki Sorachi, the popular manga received an anime adaptation and has aired in Japan since 2006 on TV Tokyo and has since surpassed over a 100 episodes. The anime series now makes its debut in the US on DVD courtesy of Sentai Filmworks with the first 13 episodes in "Gintama - Collection 1'.

The series is directed by Shinji Takamatsu ("After War Gundam", "School Rumble" series, "SD Gundam"), series composition by Akatsuki Yamatoya ("Buso Renkin", "Blue Dragon", Soul Eater", "Transformers: Cybertron"), character designs by Shinji Takeuchi ("Geneshaft", "Heat Guy J", "Planetes") and music by Audio HIGHS.

"Gin Tama" is a series that takes place during the Edo Period (Tokyo - 1860's) but in this alternate reality of the Edo Period, aliens known as Amanto have conquered Japan and because of the war against the samurai's, the Amanto have banned swords in public and are now co-existing with the humans (more like humans are forced to co-exist with the Amanto). Also, technology has been shared with the people of Japan allowing space travel, giving them access to cars, mopeds, television and more.

The series focuses on the silver haired Gintoki Sakata and his two freelancers who will perform odd jobs for a fee, but sometimes these odd jobs turn out to be more destructive than realized.

The main characters of "Gin Tama" are:

* Gintoki Sakata - The owner of "Odd Jobs Gin". Often lazy, likes reading manga, picking his nose and is late on his rent payments. Willing to take on odd jobs for a living but is also an excellent swordsman who despises the Amanto and those who co-exist with them.

Gintama will parody anything and everything and every episode is hilarious. Gin and his two associates take on any job to try and keep from being eternally penny-less and make fun of both Japanese and Western culture while doing so. Some arcs have extremely good battles, up there or above any other shonen titles.

The quality on these two DVDs is excellent. Subtitles seem accurate. Note, it only has Japanese audio track, but then again it'd be too hard for anything to really translate over. Another thing is that they have subtitles that explain some of the inside jokes and references, but those do seem to disappear too quickly, so you'll likely have to go back and pause it to read that.

I highly recommend this series. Right now it's taking a break in Japan since it ran too close to the manga material, but it will take a while before these catch up and by then they'll be doing more episodes there.

The series is an overall funny and wacky look at the adventures and misfortune of one former samurai and his friends as they try and make it day to day doing odd jobs but with hilarious consequences throughout each episode. The characters you see throughout the series are extremely funny and endearing and obviously the series doesn't take itself seriously which is appreciated as sometimes a light comedy action anime is needed to go on par to the more dramatic darker ones. Unfortunately if you dislike reading subtitles and prefer a dub version you won't get it with this series at this time with the exception of the movie. That's not to say the voice cast are poor far from it as they did a terrific job voicing their character roles but again the series at this time only comes subbed with no dubbing. Is the series for everyone?Obviously not if you dislike comedy or light hearted animes but if you give it a chance you might get a shock at how enjoyable the series actually is.

Gintama is historical show that talks about the samurai story,but with a twisted aliens invades them, then the aliens when and the city become a futuristic place,like in all the other movies we watched.So, its about a guy name Gintoki,who does any job that pays,but except paying his rent!He meet a nerd name Shinpachi who gets beat up by his boss for spilling juice on this alien,which the alien cost the spill in the first place by tripping him.Time to skip to Kagura a alien whos body is much stronger than a human, she can break boulders,and she can move half as fast as sonic the hedgehog or the Flash. Also this show makes fun of every anime we have ever watch, and some times horror movies to day make fun of, overall I give this a 10 out of 10. Best anime ever!

I loved this show since I first saw it on youtube, before it became popular on Crunchyroll. It makes so much references to older anime shows that many people in the US aren't familiar with. Many people I know had a hard time understanding the show, or trying to get why it had so much anachronism. I made an "Americanized" explanation for those people:

'Let's imagine that Abe Lincoln wasn't killed by the actor who killed him, but by aliens. Those aliens took over the US, and brought all their technological advances to the country, making guns and cowboys obsolete. So, cowboys had to rely on more "creative" ways to make money. Because guns are now illegal, the main character uses a paintball pistol.

Then I tell them that if they find that explanation interesting, just imagine it in a Japanese setting; and it works!'

Makes sense, right?
