Gintama (2013) 03 — Here we go! (Psst, spoilers ahead)

whoopin ass!

Ooooh boy! Our group of rebels are slash­ing through the Shogun’s forces like a Dynasty War­riors game. Noth­ing these guards have are going to stop Gin­to­ki and the gang from tak­ing Lord Sada Sada’s low­er top knot for being the Delta Bra­vo that he is. That and the killing of Baku­fu offi­cials because that’s a no-no.

Ultimate defensive weapons!

I did­n’t know umbrel­las did that!?

THEY CAN DO THAT TOO!?

THEY CAN DO THAT TOO!?

Upon reach­ing the old rac­coon, our rebels receive a bit of dis­turb­ing news. Ol’ Maizo has been made to pay for his “trea­son” by get­ting his oth­er arm sliced off and now they’re sur­round­ed by a new set of goons.  These aren’t your nor­mal set of goons though. These guys are MI 6 of the Shogun’s troops and they han­dle the dirty work that no one ever hears about. Kagu­ra and Shin­pachi decide to take Maizo back to get him treat­ed while Gin­to­ki, Tsukuyo and Nobume han­dle busi­ness with Lord Sada Sada and his new set of goons.  Their leader is known to Nobume though (keep that in mind for the rest of the arc) and to Gin­to­ki. This par­tic­u­lar leader, Oboro, was the one that car­ried out the Kan­sei Purges and killed Gintoki’s teacher/father fig­ure which gave him the rea­son to fight as the Shi­ro Yasha. Yup this episode final­ly reveals the hid­den truths of Gintoki’s past and his moti­va­tion in lead­ing some of the last revolts against the Baku­fu. Pret­ty seri­ous shit is going down because while all this is revealed, Gin­to­ki is get­ting han­dled by this Oboro guy while Nobume and Tsukuyo have their hands full.

Now he's pissed.

Now he’s pissed.

HE DONE BROKE YOUR SWORD WITH HIS TEETH, NOW WHAT YA GONNA DO?!

Mean­while Kagu­ra and Shin­pachi are get­ting swarmed by the impe­r­i­al guards and things start to look bleak. All of a sud­den, BOOM. The Shin­sen­gu­mi show up to save Kagu­ra, Shin­pachi and the Mimawarigu­mi, with Ise­buro, show­ing up to help Tsukuyo, Nobume and Gin­to­ki simul­ta­ne­ous­ly.

Evening officer!

Evening offi­cer!
