This week’s Gintama was a recap episode. A lot like episode 50 was at the start of season 2. But get ready for the Yagyuu arc next!

Thoughts on the Episode:
- Maybe they shouldn’t have even aired this episode… You have to admit though, the way the Gintama staff does these filler/recap episodes is very unique and ends up being quite entertaining… even though it is quite obvious the staff is recycling images…
- This was for the halfway point of the 2nd season of Gintama.
- It was basically like a director’s audio cut that you get when you buy DVD movies. The cast commented on the beginning of the story and how they all met up.
- Then there was musical arrangements. Otsu-chan sang the intro op theme, and then Gin-san wanted the normal op theme. During that we got to see the Prince Baka-Ooji instead.
- They made a trailer for a Gintama movie! Complete with release date. Based on the Benizakura arc. Yeah I’d watch that! Then they went and redid the best part of that arc and had Baka-Ooji do the voice over for Takasugi. Shinpachi notes how all the Takasugi fans probably wanna kill Baka-Ooji for that.
- Yep the Yagyuu arc is finally starting next episode. I have heard quite a bit about this and I can’t wait to see it!
