Gintama 171

This episode has two parts. The first part has burglars arriving at the Yorozuya with jetpacks and counts as a 30th anniversary Gundam special so there’s lots of Gundam references, and the second half has Gintoki, Kagura, and Shinpachi losing their hair.


Its due to situations like this that Katsura is probably my favourite character in Gintama.

Part 1

They go in through the roof and then the ceiling. They have a lot of Newtype flashes, find Sacchan sleeping in the draw, and hide when Tama comes in searching for Gintoki.



They meet Sadaharu who when they offer him a treat he bites them. Hasegawa arrives sees that no one is there, eats the food in the refrigerator, takes a bath and wears Gintoki’s underwear.



Katsura arrives, they think that he’s figured out their identities however he is completely wrong. Gintoki shows up and things seem to be going well for them until Sacchan falls out of the cupboard, Gintoki beats the burglars up and throws them and Sacchan out.


“Mickey Mouse”




Part 2

Gintoki wakes up and smashes his alarm clock, there is hair on his pillow. After showering he finds lots of hair in his hands and in the drain, and that his hair has finned a lot. He meets Kagura who has also lost some hair after talking for a while tries to pull his shower cap off.



Shinpachi arrives and his hair is falling out as well, having lost most of the hair on the back of his head. After a quick meeting they try using hair growth solution(?) but nothing happens.



A segment of the opening is shown with them with their current hair, a section of the opening is also show with them wearing wigs, Kagura tries to shave them, resulting in them losing more hair.




It turns out it was a virus caused by Amanto, Catherine has hair growth solution that Sadaharu who has also lost hair eats. His hair grows back, and then more grows.


Next Episode:

The Shinsengumi interrogate a suspect.


Something else as well…

    i watched the new eps rumbel released, the end of the arc made me want to cry, as usual
    the DBZ ep was just plain hilarious and messed up

    and i’m so eager to see the new gundams now that their names have been announced with breif descriptions XD XD XD XD i’m dying already…

    Gintama has always been good at being random and hilarious, yet still being able to bring people to tears sometimes.

    Same here, the descriptions are really brief so I’d like to see the lineart or something before drawing a conclusion.

    Slowly managing to catch up with Phantom as well.

  3. Point Blank Sniper says:

    lol you might be ahead of me in phantom soon XD
    i watch nekomimi’s subs and they are kind of slow… if you don’t watch from them, they are at ep 18 fyi
    i want moar Cal!

  4. Ginnodangan says:

    I’m watching Nekomimi’s subs as well, currently up to episode 9 (pacing due to download restraints) so I haven’t seen Cal yet.

  5. Point Blank Sniper says:

    you have seen Cal =) she is in the op, you don’t know it’s her until you’ve seen her in the show. you probably think that shot of Cal is Ein right now because of the lack of colour in the op =)
    maybe you will notice her now that i’ve told you.

  6. Ginnodangan says:

    lol, I didn’t notice her in the OP until you pointed her out. What I mean though is that I haven’t seen her in the actual episodes themselves, other than that I have seen the post time skip version of her (loli to something like this in two years) and some of the promo art.

  7. Point Blank Sniper says:

    hmmm there is a time skip? i guess i should watch the next ep since it was finally released. but i don’t think it’s at the time skip or new op/ed yet.

  8. Ginnodangan says:

    Yeah, two years, where Cal returns after Reiji/Zwei left her thinking that she was dead.

    Currently up to episodes 12 and 13 at the moment, and Reiji/Zwei seems to be nearing the level of Kiritsugu’s badassery (for comparison purposes, Kiritsugu took down an entire hotel building with explosives to eliminate one man).
