Cant go on. Too much randomness. Gintama is the only one who is funny, but there less focus on jim and every chapter has a different story. Its just a compilation of daily adventures.

I guess it was meant more for anime than to be read as a manga for me.

2.5 - It's just a bunch of random events that have no connection to the main plot whatsoever. Heck, I don't even know if it has a main plot. There were events that I found extremely funny and the rest, just too boring.

This volume is just hilarious, but the tone shifted a little, talking about the sweet burden and bonds between human, nice one, Gin-chan!

Well Gin showed maturity and friendship value in this manga. Zura seems persistent. :]

I'm not seeing the Kagura I know...yet. Shinpachi is the only consistent character, apparently.

Lol! I'm really liking this series so far! It's so random.

I want to know more about Gin's past. And don't forget, all you need is... Calcium!
