A Gintama chapter a day keeps the ending away...Lesson 52

This is my New Years resolution for 2017: to re-read a chapter of Gintama every day starting from the beginning and sum it up thusly… 

Favorite Scenes in Lesson 52:

Okita being trigger-happy as usual.


Power line-up. My heart….

Sakata was good, but Gintoki will always be better.

And just like that, the Yorozuya was whole again (thank the gods).

Ships Tally:

HijiOki (I know I’m getting dangerously close to the point of just shipping them whenever they even talk to each other but how am I supposed to resist this cuteness??)

KonGinSakata (If Gintoki had stayed as Sakata, I wonder if Kondou and Tae-chan would have had to fight over him….)

OkiKagu (Translation for their dialogue below: “Please be safe and don’t die”. SO SWEET.)

Disclaimer: Gintama is not only about shipping. Gintama is hilarious, clever, exciting, poignant, heart-breaking, loving, brilliant, and just so darn amazing.  It is only due to Sorachi-sama’s generosity that I can enjoy Gintama on yet another level, the shippy level, so I am truly grateful for that. GINTAMA IS LIFE AND LOVE.
