Re: Gintama Discussion Thread
Hmmm...why do you find him pathetic? That's the last word that came to my mind
And you are right, it's the 1st that Gin is ever seriously injured. The appearance of Nizo's boss, Takasugi, is important too, since he's going to be one of the more troublesome enemies that Gin will face later on as well.
Er...can you remember whether the Ben arc fully scanlated yet? >.>
Hi Nami! Yeah, I loved the Nizo vs Gintoki fight under the bridge, it was a cliff-hanger!
LOL. I feel sympathy for Nizo and Tetsuo because they remind me of people in RL who are socially rejected so they have to work really hard to get power and respect. They end up like small versions of Nizo and Tetsuo. Yet ironically, they tried to get power and respect in order to feel belonging.
Nizo probably felt that Takasugi was the only guy who understood his twisted soul so he didn't mind dying to serve him, i.e. dying for the sense of belonging. Tetsuo hated himself and thought he would be happy if he could make the ultimate blade, yet the ultimate thing that made him happy was sacrificing his life to protect his family member (sister) from his own blade. XD;;;
No, the Beni Arc isn't fully scanlated yet, but it will be in two months. It's currently being released by Mangasearcher as a solo, but in two months Urakai Scans will take over and begin releasing the rest of Gintama from Beni Arc to Kyubei Arc to Owee Arc, 35 scanlations are being prepared now.
On the topic of scanlations I've heard that M7 has got chps 42-50s ++ translated, so we can also expect them to begin scanlation on these chapters once their staffing issue is settled. ^_^
8.1) To download older chapters http://mangahelpers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1394 -> Their links don't expire that fast unlike Ritualscanforge's. So come here if you missed past raws e.g Chapter 162. For really old chapters e.g Chapter 140, you'd have to ask people but not me. I don't have raws older than chapter 159.
11)View Gintama anime episodes online
Dailymotion has deleted most of the full length Gintama episodes and so has youtube. Veoh likes to remove links on a periodic basis. Thus the most stable sites would be: http://www.crunchyroll.com -> View English subbed episodes online http://www.tudou.com/search/programs...F8%BB%EA&type= -> Chinese streaming site like youtube. Has OVA, episode 1- latest episode. All episodes are in chinese subtitles.
14) English Fan-subs (Ouch for those who can't understand Chinese)
The English subbers can't beat the Chinese subbers in terms of speed but they do have additional terms and references. http://www.rumbel-subs.com/ -> Fan-subbing group who have done quite a number of translations for Gintama anime. Even though they are slow, they aren't slow as... http://www.shinsen-subs.org/ -> Not too sure if they are still doing Gintama, but it's listed as an active project as of Aug 25 2007.
4)I didn't include all of Shiroro's translations since she unlocks and locks her translations as and when she likes. Ask her nicely yourself.

It seems that Otose and Sacchan meet or something XD I really can't make heads or tails out of this. Gah...its because i haven't been practicing. I can see something about the Yorozuya going to a hospital, and Sacchan doing cosplay as a Nurse, School girl and a Sailor...but its not making sense to me ^^;;;
