Product Description

Odd Jobs Gin has taken on a lot of odd work in the past, and when you're a Jack of All Trades agency based in a feudal Japan that's been conquered and colonized by aliens, the term "Odd Jobs" means really odd jobs. But when some more than slightly suspicious secrets from the shadows of Gintoki Sakata's somewhat shady former samurai past and a new pair of odd jobs collide, the action is bound to get so wild and demented that only a feature film will do it justice! So, if you've had the good fortune to see Gintama, Japan's most popular science fiction samurai series before, get ready for more of the same on an epic scale! And if you haven't seen Gintama before, well, this is your quick and easy introduction to why Gintama (the series) is the hottest thing to hit the Land of the Rising Sun since a certain large, green reptile whose name we can't use due to certain litigious lawyers! So sit down, strap yourself in and make sure you're not wearing anything too tight or constricting as the junior half of OJG takes on the task of tracking down a tenacious terrorist while their silver-haired slickster of a partner seeks out a certain sword in the stunningly side-splitting screwy Gintama!

Amazon.com

Gintama: The Movie (2010) is a fast-paced, take-no-prisoners reworking of the long-running Gintama TV series (2006). Gintoki, an eccentric young samurai, runs an odd-jobs service with his friends Shinpachi, the heir to a martial arts dojo; Kagura, a powerful, red-haired alien girl; and Elizabeth, a giant duck who holds up signs commenting on the action, like Genma Saotome in Ranma 1/2. What should be a routine request to find the Benizakura, a deadly sword with a pinkish blade, lands Gen and his friends in a violent series of battles tied to a plot to overthrow the shogun. Gin triumphs because he adheres to the traditional virtues of Bushido, the samurai code of honor, while his foes are hungry for naked power. But despite the similarity of themes, Gintama is a far cry from Rurouni Kenshin. This version of Tokugawa-era Edo includes artificial intelligence, aliens, flying battleships, and Jump manga. The fragmentary storyline careens from violent sword fights to slapstick jokes to anachronistic references. Viewers who haven't seen the broadcast series and/or the OVAs (a total of more than 250 episodes) will find themselves hopelessly lost; fans of Gintama will enjoy seeing the familiar cast up to their usual nutty stunts--especially in the short tailpiece, where an army of characters fights over who gets to be in the sequel. (Rated TV 14 VSL: violence, violence against women, brief nudity, profanity, risqué and gross humor, grotesque imagery, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

Sadly the next movie will be the intro to an ending of a great series!

I'm a huge fan of Gintama, and I was really excited to listen to the English dub for the first time.

This movie is kinda a remake of the Benizakura story arc episodes 58 to 61 gintama seires. For those who are unfamiliar with it, Gintama is a comedy series set in an alternate universe, where Japan is taken over by aliens. It follows the adventures of Sakata Gintoki who is always broke. He works like a mercenary together with two teenagers and does various tasks to make a living. The series are more like a parody of popular anime series and characters. samurai, space technology, aliens and comedy may sound strange, but Gintama is really funny and original. However, the Benizakura arc is probably the most action-packed in the whole series. So even those, who don't like comedy with sci-fi elements, will enjoy the spectacular sword fights.

The Benizakura story itself is kept unchanged. Katsura leader of anti-government faction, has disappeared. Some believe he has fallen victim to a murderer, who targets samurai on the streets of Edo. Gintoki wants to look for his missing friend, but is given a job. He has to find a stolen sword, the Benizakura. While he is searching for it, Kagura and Shinpachi are looking for Katsura. They all face some dangerous enemies and eventually discover a conspiracy aiming to overthrow the government.

The Benizakura arc is awesome and watching it again never gets old. Those, who haven't seen the series, can still watch the movie and enjoy it. The story is easy to follow and the action is good. The movie is Good. The English Dub is Good,shinpachi is one character i didnt like, the voice for him idk, other than him, everyone else was great.

Hoping everyone, fans, buys the movie, so it can sell alot and maybe Sentai Filmworks can consider dubbing Gintama series

Got the movie and seen it with my brother.

My thoughts about the movie: IT WAS AWESOME. AWESOME AWESOME! Just hearing them have english voices makes me over excited. After a only a few days of having this movie, I had already seen it around 9 times.

Here's my review:
With the dub, there were parts were my brother and I finally understood what was happening. We actually found some stuff in the story that we didn't know. Also, I was able to pay attention and catch pivotal moments in the art work and character emotions that was tough to catch when reading subtitles.

Now as for the voices. Some voices did sound a bit odd to me but I got used to them easily. This movie is definitely professional quality tho. There were some mispronunciations but as long as I know who theyre talking about than it's alright. ALso, there is cursing but that's not so unusual for Gintama lol

Kyle Jones did well. There WERE scripting errors that didn't fit the scene, and lines that were given to the wrong character and some lines that were even dropped. I think this could have been prevented if there was more research done on the show. Also, some lines on the movie weren't as funny as I thought it was when it was in japanese, but some lines were even more funny when they were said in English.

Don't let that stop you because this movie is AWESOME. The actors pulled it off.

I'm not going to repeat what Gintama the series is all about because it's been done in the other reviews.

This movie was SO good. It takes what Gintama is all about, serious themes mixed with hilarity working together in harmony. There's nothing awkward about how the two go together. If you aren't already a fan, I do hope that this encourages you to watch or read the rest of this wonderfully done series. It's really rare that a good manga has a good anime to go along with it. This movie is only one of many awesome story arcs that are in the anime.

As for the dub itself, it was pretty well done although I don't agree with some of the voices or some of the pronunciations of Japanese words, but what can you do? Hopefully if this leads to a Gintama English dub the people working on it will take a little more care to pronounce things correctly and to ... give Shinpachi better lines and some direction cuz he's honestly the only character that was really wayyy off.

So yeah, this was a good purchase and I am very happy that I was able to buy it and watch it on my PS3!! Totally awesome (cherry blossom ;) ) to have an English dub of Gintama, even if it wasn't **PERFECT** I greatly enjoyed it as a whole. I hope a lot of people buy it! I want this series dubbed for TV viewing <3

Figured i should put my spin on this if i may,im just gonna get right into this,for those who are already familiar with the series.This adapts the benizakura arc from the Gintama anime,for the most part with the exception of one single cut or two and a pointless added scene (which is made fun of at the end of the movie),the movie is practically identical to that of the anime.However it does have a pretty good boost in quality that the TV anime just doesn't get,so that in itself is a good motivator to get this.

Now for the dub itself: i really had no problem with it myself.Everyone seemed to act out their roles according to their characterizations.The Voice direction given out to the actors seemed to fit within the charterers as well,the best in my honest opinion being kagura.One character in particular:shinpachi,the straight man of the trio was a bit odd.At the beginning of the movie his acting was pretty out there,with him sounding incredibly obnoxious and annoying (of course this making sense as that's what his character amounts to),but as the movie continued on he just snugly fit into his character.

Certainly not a deal breaker, as some other reviewer noted here,but i figured i should mention it as some might find him (shinpachi, off putting.)However the good thing is at the end of the day if the English dub is not your thing, you can always switch the audio to the original Japanese with English subs.However i must say that you should give the English dub a try and judge it by your own merits,you might be pleasantly surprised,i certainly was. Having seen it all in its original language.

No special features to speak of, as many of sentai's releases rarely do get any of them.There really isn't anything else to speak of here,if your already a fan of this series,chances are you already bought this product and already know how awesome it is. enjoy :)
