What.

The.

Hell.

This chapter was...damn. I...I...I really don't know. It was so wrong that sometimes I wondered if I was translating it correctly. And worse yet, I technically don't get a break since this raw came out so historically late. >_< Life suuucks.

By the way, Dondake subs? I do know that you're translating my work into Spanish without crediting me. First off, I reserved the translations for one group, and if you guys want to use them, you should at least let me know. Second, the translations aren't 100 percent ready. So I hope you like your reputation crashing and burning. At least if you're going to steal translations, you should add something about getting them from BDR.

If you guys like your Gintama at 100 percent, read Hi wa mata noboru's scans.

GINTAMA

(Side text- Two years later we're just rooooolin on!!)

Lesson 326: Right after Goldenweek ends, if you can see it, you can see it.
SORACHI HIDEAKI.

Tamo: And now...

This week's spotlight!!

In the spotlight this week is...

A sensation that has been selling enough to be in the top three of charts for weeks!

Singer Songwriter Madao-san's third single!

(Sfx- Fanraaaaaraaaa cheeeeeeeeer)

Tamo: 'God of cardboard'!!

I was really surprised to see you rank again! Oh, not cutting the hair?

Hasegawa: Well, I tried to...but it just grew right back.

002

Tamo: Madao-san's drifting way of life has inspired many who listen to his tunes to take up cardboard and mimic their hero.

The drifting life has brought together the youngsters who were once known as 'spotty'. With his natural charisma, and through popular music, Madao-san has become a star.

Now why might this be? Can you explain this 'drifting' lifestyle?

Oh and I'm sure you cut your hair.

Hasegawa: I said I didn't. It's actually longer than it used to be.

Tamo: Oh, it's that time! Everyone on standby please.

And now Madao-san...

Your hair, you cut it right?

Hasegawa: I TOLD YOU I DIDN'T!! DO YOU WANT ME TO?! WOULD IT MAKE ME ACCEPTABLE TO YOU?!

(Sfx- Oraaaaaaaah)
Shinpachi: So....what just happened?

Hijikata: Don't ask me.

003

Hijikata: Everything changed during a one week hiatus.

I lost my status, my honor, and even my place in a week.

It's like...

Everyone went on with their lives in two years, and left me behind.

Shinpachi: So, the question is...how did things end up changing so radically? Is everyone just messing with our heads?

Hijikata: I have to admit, that's what I thought at first....

But this wasn't one person, or a few, but everyone other than me that was acting weird.

After a while, It became obvious that something was up. I decided to play along to get to the bottom of this.

Kondo-san had disappeared, and Sougo had taken his place. Yamazaki was acting like a punk, and I got demoted.

In the end, all I could do was grin like an idiot.

But I guess I couldn't....

Keep up that act.

Yamazaki: Hi—Hijikata, ya bastard....didja really think a weakass like you would be able to pull somethin' like that off...? Huuuuh?

(Sfx- Dotsu tok)

Yamazki: HUNH.

004

Shinpachi: Hijikata-san...

Somehow, the world entered a two year timeslip without us knowing...

And this world two years later...

Has become a place that only the two of us don't understand.
Hijikata: Why are we the only two that haven't been affected?

It's like we were left behind on purpose...

Shinpachi: Hijikata-san...

To be honest, lately I've been...

Avoiding being the...

Straight man.

It's been tough, being around idiots 24/7, and the yelling...the YELLING.

Even with all of that work, I'm not popular, and don't even get any character goods.

In the relationship between straight-man and idiot, the idiot seems to have it the best.

And you know? The last few months that I've played the idiot...

Have been the most fun I’ve ever had.

005

Shinpachi: While I’ve been off playing hooky, it seems that everyone has found what it is they do best.

They've taken the break to mature,

and continue down their paths.

So maybe this is God's way of punishing me...

For playing hooky instead of being responsible.

Hjikata-san...

I think that deep down, there's something you need to do too.

I know your role is to be the down to earth guy at the Shinsengumi...

So you've known nothing but the straight-man position.

Yet, the few times you've become Toshi, you've experienced the idiot chair, right?

Hijikata: I'd like to remind you that it was the SWORD that did that to me! I couldn't exactly help it!!

Shinpachi: And your strange obsession with Mayo...

Hijikata: I JUST LIKE MAYONASE!! WHAT'S WRONG WITH THAT?!
Shinpachi: Then....are you saying you didn't like that role you were playing?

Is that something you couldn't help? Did you really do it to adapt? Or is it that who you really want to be?!

Isn't it nice to forget your responsibility and be the idiot?

Hijikata: ….it.

Shinpachi: I'm sure it felt great didn't it? To just let go...

Hijikata: ….top it...

Shinpachi: So why not just embrace the feelings deep down, and say what you really mean....

Hijikata: STOP IT! STOP BABBLING NONSENSE!!!

006

Shinpachi: Sorry, I guess I talked too much..

Hijikata: No, It's my bad. I shouldn't have yelled.

Maybe we did shirk our responsibilities as the straight guys.

But to think we'd end up in a world where the idiot saturation would be this high...

It begs the question...

What are we supposed to do? Where are we supposed to go?

Hijikata: This world...

Shinpachi: Where Gin-san looks like Yamcha...

Hijikata: Kondo-san has disappeared...

Shinpachi: Sister is wed to a Gorilla...

Hijikata: Sougo is a kaiser...

Shinpachi: And Kyuubee-san has a d*ck...

Both: To live in this world....

Seems more like a punishment, than a right...

Hijikata: I'm going back to the holy Shinsengumi empire...

If I don't stop that fool Kaiser, there'll be no one to stand up to you Yorozuya idiots...

Shinpachi: Yeah...that's right.

I dunno if Isao will forgive me, but I think I'll just stick with the Yorozuya...

I suppose in time, I can get used to Yamucha wig Gin-san, and stacked Kagura-chan in time.....after all, the Yorozuya will never change.

007

Shinpachi: Be the best straight-man you can.

Hijikata: You too, kid.

Shinpachi: After all...

From here on in, the only thing that hasn't changed and will never change is our role...

Caster: And now we continue with the news.

During our hiatus, Edo has been infected by a strange boil-like organism.

It wasn't until now that medical institutions have been able to identify this phenomenon.

Apparently this boil will attach itself to other organism, and alter the host body.

Although to be fair, this thing shouldn't be called a boil, but a parasitic alien, named 'Kyusainetol'.

The parasite will take over the body, and after two to three days, change its form into something similar to what is depicted here.

During this time, it will gather information from the host body.

After about five days, it will begin to change, becoming an exact replica of the host.

With the information it gathers, in a week, the parasite can look like the host. However, oddly enough, we have found that rather than a current copy, it takes the appearance of the host in two years.

The parasite seems to mostly favor information that is important to the host. Specifically the host's 'ambition.''.

With enough time, the parasite can literally become what the host has themselves inspired to be.

008

Caster: The keyword for the people afflicted seems to be 'Two years' later. They will claim this, although two years have not actually passed.

This is possibly the work of the Kyusainetol.

Morover, if you look closely at their bodies, you will notice the real 'shape' hidden within.

In order to stop the Kyusainetol, you must strike the afflicted with a paper fan-like object.

There is no need to worry, your friends and family haven't changed at all.

Two years have not passed....the world is as you see it right now.

It's the world...

Just with more boils.

Other caster: Um Kusano-san?

There seems to be something on your head...

Kusano: What?!

Shinpachi: ...What was that....?

So this whole thing...

009

Shinpachi: IS THE BOIL-HARU'S FAUUUUULT?!

THIS WHOLE TIME IT WAS SOMETHING STUPID LIKE THAT?! I THOUGHT I WAS GOING CRAZY!!

So Yamcha Gin-san...

Is just Boil-Yamcha?!

Grown up Kagura-chan has...

One boil up top,

And two on her chest?!

And the Gorilla household...

Is the result of a boil on the chest, and one in the oven?!

Hijikata: Ambition...huh?

Ain't this some BS? So because we skimped out on our straight man duties, some parasite decided to take over?

And now, the only way to save them....no, the world is to be straight men?

Heh, now I see exactly what we were put ehre to do.

{Our straight jokes have to reach straight into their hearts.}

{Even if it means hunting each one of them down.}

010

Hijikata: This ain't the time to be standing around!! We're gonna beat the mess out of those boils!

Shinpachi: Let's take our world back!!

(Sfx- Datsu dasssh)

Kagura: Shinpachiiiii!!

(Sfx- Dooon thoom)

Kagura: I have been looking for you everywhere!

Where did you go...?

Shinpachi: Kagura-san?!

Kagura: I have been soooo worried about you!!

Hijikata: Hey! What are you doing?!

(Sfx- Dakiii glooomp)

Hijikata: Hurry up and smack her one with the fan, so she'll be freed from the boil!!

{K....Kagura-sannnnnnn!!!)

(Sfx- Mgyuuuu squissh)

{It should be a crime for you to yell out and hug me with that bodyyyy!!}

Kagura: I have been lonley without you.

The Yorozuya without Shinpachi is like Shinpachi without glasses.

{The hell?! So I’m only really necessary because of my glasses?!}

{NGUAAHHHHHH!!}

{Is this REALLY the boilllllll!?!}

011

{She's so cute!! Is this really because of her boil?!}

{M---Maybe the boils aren't....}

{Such a bad thing...}

Hijikata: Don't start spacing out now!! It's what the boil wants!!

She's saying exactly what you want to hear, dammit!!

Move it!! I'll take care of this!!

(Sfx- Guaaaaaa)

Kagura: Kyahhhh!!!

(Sfx- Paaan thok)

Hijikata: Kaiser Sogou Sadistic Okita the third?!

(Sfx- Yorotsu wobble0

(Sfx- Goho couuugh)

Okita: Hi---Hijikata-san...

I don't want to see you raise a hand to a woman....

012

Kagura: You must hold on, Kaiser!

Okita: After Kondo-san left, I thought that I should make our organization bigger and better.

In order to protect the Shinsengumi, I knew that I had to be come stronger. So I made the cool-headed decision to make our group into an empire.

But I knew it was you Hijikata-san, you were the one willing to get dirty for us...

It was because of you that the Shinsengumi became more than a bunch of barbarians.

Shinpachi: Don't lose yourself Hijikata-san!! Those are the boils! The boils!!

Okita: If it weren't for you rescuing me from my own loneliness,

I would have never walked the same path with everyone. So please, lead them in my place....

If only we could have one more bowl of Mayo-don together...

(Sfx- Gohoo couuugh)

Shinpachi: HE'S TOTALLY LYING!! REMEMBER HOW HE USED TO CALL THAT STUFF DOG FOOD?!

Hijikata: So—Sougoooo!! Hold on man!!

(Sfx- Munyuuu splirrrch)

(Sfx- Gubigubi glorp glorp)

Shinpachi: NO! THAT'S NOT HOW YOU REVIVE PEOPLE AT ALL! I'M TELLING YOU, THE BOIL IS JUST MESSING WITH YOUR HEAD!!

Shinpachi: Move aside!! I'll take care of this!!

(Sfx- Ooooooh Oraaaah!!)

Tae: Stop that, Shin-chan!!

What kind of samurai strikes a man who is already down?!

Shinpachi: S---Sisteeeeeeeeer!!! And...WHAT IS THAT IN YOUR ARMSSSS?!

013

Tae: How would I explain your cruelty to this child?!

Tell me, what would I say?

Shinpachi: Uugh...

Hijikata: Don't space out dammit! That's not your sister, but a boil!!

Shinpachi: I already know that! I won't let her fool me any more!!

(Sfx- Guaaaa roaaaah)

Shinpachi: I won't let you be that Gorilla's wife any more!!

Tae: Stop it!!

You're wrong!!

This child's father is....
(Sfx- Guiii fwisssh)

Tae: Just look at his face! That hair!!

(Sfx- Gakiiiii thwakkkk)

Shinpachi: WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?!

Hijikata: Those V shaped bang...this kid....it can't be..

Shinpachi: OF COURSE NOT!! WHY WOULD MY SISTER WHO HAS NEVER HAD ANY INTEREST IN YOU BEFORE, SUDDENLY SPAWN YOUR CHILD?!

Tae: I'm so sorry, Toshi-san. I shouldn't have hidden this from you...

I knew if Isao-san found out about this, he'd kill you.....I just wanted to continue being happily married...

Shinpachi: WAAAIT A SECOND SISTER!! YOU'VE GONE AND GOT YOURSELF IN THE WORSE SITUATION HAVEN'T YOUUU?!

014

Tae: Please, for our child's sake, we have to run away!

To a world without Gorillas!

Shinpachi: Hijikata-san!! Don't be fooled! There's no way that's your kid!!

Hijikata: Did you think something like this would fool me?

Leave the child and get out of my sight.

(Handwritten- We are so done.)

Shinpachi: YOU'VE TOTALLY BEEN FOOLED!!

Hijikata: I'll take care of this child myself. As if I'd leave him with you.

I'll raise Tougorou as a single parent!!

(TN- The kanji in Hijikata's first name could be read as 'fourteenth son'. So his son is Togorou, which can be read as 'Fifteenth son.')

Shinpachi: Just calm down!! Wait, WHO'S TOGOROU?!

???: Togorou? That's a nice name for such a cute lil tyke! Let me see him?

Hijkata: Sure, but he's still a newborn, so be careful.

???: He is such a cutie!

It's to be expected, since his mom and dad are beautiful....

But too bad, so sad. My child is much prettier.

Right, Isako-chan?

Shinpachi: KONDO-SAAAAAAAAN!!! YOU'RE FREAKING ME OUUUT!!! WHERE DID YOU FIND THAAAAAAAAAAT?!

015

(Sfx- Batsuuu Fwipp)

Kondo: You guys don't deserve to be the only ones who are happy!!

(Sfx- garararaaraara weheeeeee)

(Sfx- Hohohohoho)

Kondo: How about we share some misfortune too?!

Hijikata: TOUGOROU!!!!

Shinpachi: HIJIKATA-SAAAAN!! You can't even be the straight man any more!! You've become too wrapped up in their fantasy!!

Kondo: DON'T COME ANY CLOSER!! SAY RIGHT THERE!!

IF YOU GET CLOSE TO ME, I'M GONNA JUMP WITH THIS KID!!

Hijikata: Just...calm down.....don't do anything rash, Kondo-san!!

Shinpachi: YOU NEED TO CALM DOWN! WE WENT FROM STOPPING BOILS TO STOPPING A SUICIDE ATTEMPT!!

Hijikata: A child bears no sins. It's Otae and I that are at fault.

Shinpachi: YOUR HEAD IS AT FAULT!!

Hijikata: If you want to kill someone, go ahead and kill me. Just let Togorou live.

Shinpachi: Why are you placing the boil on a higher pedestal than yourself?!

???: Kondo-san, please look this way.

As a parent you should know better. Your role is protect children, isn't it?
016

???: Yet I see you here, doing this?

Do you really intend to abandon this child?

To take your own life and have me raise our baby alone?

Kondo: No way....that child...

Who—who are you....?

You're a truly reprehensible man. You ran away from your wife,

And into my arms at the bar....are you truly saying you don't remember who I am?

Kondo: Wait! It's you! From back then....I remember!!

Zurako-saaaaaaan!!!

Shinpachi: WHYYYYYYYYYY?!

HOW THE HELL ARE YOU EVEN ABLE TO HAVE KIDS?!

You have to be alive to be a good father...so that's why for our sake, you have to come back...come back and be a man, no...a father.

Shinpachi: TECHNICALLY, YOU'RE BOTH ABLE TO BE GREAT FATHERS!! MORE LIKE WHY WOULD NATURAL ENEMIES SHACK UP WITH EACH OTHER?!

Katsura: Look at your daddy, Goriko.

Shinpachi: HE'S NOT THE DAD AT ALLL!! HE'S NOT EVEN THE RIGHT SPECIES!!

???: Oh? Goriko is it~?

(Sfx- Garararara clattter)

???: She's so precious. May I hold her for a moment?

Katsura: Ah, I haven't had a chance to peel her banana yet, so be careful.

Shinpachi: YOU DON'T NEED TO PEEL ANYTHING!

(Sfx- Dakiii squeeze)

???: Ah, she's really a cute little gorilla~.

017
Kyuubee: That's too bad though, because my child is much more precious.

Shinpachi: Kyuubee-sa...

Kyuubee: Isn't that right, P*nis-chan?

Shinpachi: WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU RAISING THERE?! CONGRATS ON RAISING THE CREEPY BAR TO MAXIMUM LEVELS!!

Kyuubee: I have no need for a wife or a husband! I'll be their mother and father, and raise them to be happy children!!

(Sfx- Gararararara claaaaaaater)

Kyuubee: No need to worry, I'll bring them happiness that they'd never have with you!!

Hijikata: Tougorouuuu!!!

Kondo: Goriko!!

Katsura: P*nisko!!

{KNOCK IT OFFFFF!!!!}

(Sfx- Do do doooon THOOOM)

(Sfx- Poro poro poro drop drop)

(Sfx- Pofunnn pooof)

Shinpachi: I thought you were acting weird...

Hijikata-san, you had a boil too, didn't you?

Boils that can read ambition,

Ended up turning things into a certifiable nightmare.

Although, it's thanks to them that I realized what's really important.

For now on, no more shirking off on my duties...

To keep from falling behind you again, I'll have to keep working every week, to exceed my limits and run even further.

Now it's all over!!

Next week, with my feelings renewed, I'm going to work as hard as I can!

???: Nope, It's not over yet.

019

(Sfx- Paan thok)

Shinpachi: Huh?

Gintoki: You're a boil too...

Shinpachi.

Shinpachi: WHAAAAAAT?!

(Sfx- Bofuuun pooof)

(Sfx- Basaaa fwap)

Gintoki: Damn. Everyone had me worried for a second there....getting all strong and crap during the break..

Why the hell didn't they do anything to make ME more awesome? Geez, talk about boils that just don't get it...

And worse yet, next week is a break too. I guess if I don't want to get left behind again, I'm gonna have to bust my ass.

All right, week after next, I'm gonna do it...

I'm gonna go with this.

(Side text- Week after next will be 'Gintama' as usual!)

GINTAMA LESSON 326..........END.

(Side text- To prepare for the upcoming one shot, this manga will be on break in Issue 45.)
