this arc continues to amaze me to this day


It honestly kills me that Gintoki is still having nightmares about that day, yet still continues to be positive and support others, like Hijikata in this episode.

And the fact that Sougo and the others believed in Hijikata enough to be on standby already just warms my heart. Gintoki had to bear his burden alone, but he and the rest of Hijikata’s amazing friends will make sure Hijikata won’t have to go through the same.
