"Gintama" will eventually have to end. Yes, we know that nobody wants to believe that, but good things never last forever. While it is still on the air, sit back and enjoy the adventures of this wacky group of heroes. Now in its sixth year, "Gintama" left behind the more serious tone of the last season for a return to the more comedic nature of its earlier arcs. While the main plot is bound to rear its head sooner rather later, the first two episodes prioritized humor and randomness above anything else.

Episode 330 is entitled "My Bald Dad, My Light-Haired Dad, and My Dad's Glasses," and is available with English subtitles via Crunchyroll.


Kagura is finally dating, as she brings her boyfriend over to meet her father and Gintoki.


The first episode ended with the revelation that the boy is actually a massive Titan, something which leads to a lot of hilarious moments during episode 330. Obviously, this is a parody of "Attack On Titan," although "Gintama" does not really do too much with it. Other than saying the name of that anime a few times, the Titans only bare a passing resemblance to the infamous villains.

While not one of the funniest stories the show has ever done, as the way Gintoki overreacts to Kagura having a boyfriend goes against his typical laid-back persona, there is a few laugh out loud moments sprinkled throughout. The animation is pretty great and works well with the tone of the story.

Things improve when the boyfriend reveals that he plans to kidnap Kagura and marry her. This leads to some surprisingly violent action sequences and a really funny punch-line which we would not dare spoil in this review.

Overreacting is a stable of anime comedies, with "Gintama" often present characters as big babies who cannot control their emotions. This can be funny when used sparingly, but the characters spend practically this entire episode shouting at the top of their lungs.

After a while, it did start to get grating. There are some quieter moments, like when Kagura has a heart to heart with her boyfriend, but they are few and far between. "Gintama" is rarely subtle, but episode 330 could have used some restraint.

Overall, season six is off to a good start, and we cannot wait to see what else is in store for the odd-jobs crew. Fans of the series should be pretty pleased with the content of the opening two episodes, as they do not divert from the formula which made the anime so well loved.
