Gintama Episode #203 - Recap

The return of Gintama has been fairly fun in its first episode as it supposedly shifted things forward a couple of years and showed us how everyone changed. Amusingly, all the changes are for the better in my opinion that would give the series a much needed bit of improvement in shaking things up a bit. With Shinpachi being the only one who hadn't changed during the break during episodes, he's shocked to learn that two years have passed. Gin is pretty solid now as he plays up his Kenshin look and Kagura is hot and confident while still being somewhat goofy. Of course, there's some oddness as well as Shinpachi learns how a certain group of characters are now essentially trannies as he puts it.The strangeness continues easily in this follow-up episode, especially with Jimmy Yamazaki now taking on the role of the vice commander, but one that's hilariously addicted to anpan that he just breathes it in from a plastic bag and uses the 'an' word at the end of sentences to show just how addicted he is. There's some fun as we see more of the shinsengumi and their plans about taking over Edo but that in order to do so, they have to make sure they take down the Kabuki district first since that would be their biggest challenge and the one that would come back in the end to bite them in the rear. The group has never been particularly, well, intimidating, and they're certainly not here, but it is amusing to see them all so focused on a goal together, even if it freaks the hell out of Shinpachi.
