You'd think after being trolled so much that I'd not expect anything from the end of this chapter or the beginning of the next. You'd think that but...

Also the text amount in this compared to Toriko this week makes me something something.

Hi wa mata noboru only.


(Side text- Who gathers this eve…?)
(Side text- The anime ‘Gintama’s last great hurrah! ‘Gintama the movie Final act: Yorozuya forever’ has finally opened!! Get to the theater post haste!!)
Lady: Welcome!
The others are already waiting for you…
So please come to the tatami room.
(Sfx- Garara *clatter*)
???: You’re late Gintoki.

002
Katsura: If this were a time of war for the Patriots…
Because of you the leader would have lost his footing and great chaos would be born.
Sakamoto: Gahahahaah! Don’t be so stiff Zura!!
Kintoki’s not the sorta dude who’d let military regulations get him down!!
Man we were all totally like doing the lone wolf thing back then. Everyone was innit to do whatever they wanted, remember?
Katsura: You do remember that you were able to do what you pleased because we were there to cover your back.
(Banner- Patriot class reunion.)
(Bottom text- The latest volume #50 is out in stores!!)
(Side text- This can only bring ominous premonitions!!)
GINTAMA
Lesson 452: It’s tough for people who show up to class reunions late to join in.
SORACHI HIDEAKI

003
Sakamoto: Oh yeah! Totally!
Maaan this is a blast from the past ain’t it?
Katsura: Indeed. It is nostalgic…
(Sfx- Pan *slam*)
Katsura: HOLD ITTTTTTTT!!
(Sfx- Gahhh *Grab*)
(Sfx- Gaah *Grab*)
Sakamoto: AIN’T THIS A GOOD TIME TO REMINISE!?!
Katsura: Don’t you get it?! It is exceedingly rare that we three should all be here together! This is a class reunioooon!!
Don’t you have strong feelings for…
Gintoki: Like hell I do.
I see you idiots in every one of the anime’s OP’s and ED’s, and do I complain about it? No.
And I’ve pretty much had it up to here seeing all that shitty merchandise that you guys get.
Sakamoto: Don’t even joke about that brah! Yeah I appear in the OP and ED’s but in reality I’m getting zero appearances in the actual series!
Gintoki: You don’t really need to appear in the main story much. You’ve got a comfortable position crashing the table like Hoshi Ittetsu does.
(TN- Hoshi Ittetsu seems to be a character in the manga ‘Kyoujin no Hoshi’ or star of the giants. He seems to be the main character’s dad….I actually found a picture from the anime that’s exactly like the one Sorachi’s parodying.)

004
Gintoki: You guys made it sound like you had something important to talk about so I came, but..
I really don’t have the time of day to sit with you two idiots.
Sakamoto: Aww, c’mon and simmer down Kintoki.
(Handwritten- Drink up!)
(Handwritten- My name isn’t friggin’ Kintoki.)
Katsura: It’s not as if we chose this time to simply have a buddy-buddy conversation.
With the movie opening without any difficulty and fifty tankobon behind us already..
Gintama is approaching 10 years of serialization. We can’t complain that we’ve had no time to do this.
Katsura: Isn’t it about time…
We started a reminiscence of the past arc?
Gintoki: Is this an editors meeting?!
Katsura: If we intend to cover all lose ends and end this stage, new developments are necessary.
GIntoki: And what puts you in the position to worry about that?
Katsura: I’m sure you’re aware that Jump uses flashbacks and past reminiscence arcs as props on a regular basis.
Many manga up until now have utilized a past reminiscence arc to trigger explosive popularity for themselves.

005
Katsura: When are we going to utilize such a prop?!
Sakamoto: Sh…..
Should we jump into it now, right here?!
Gintoki: I AM NOT DOING THIS WITH YOU TWO NOW!!
Just doing a past arc for the hell of it will be blatantly obvious to anyone.
‘Sides no one gives a damn about the past or future of you guys since you’re just parallel lines of idiocy.
I really hate past reminiscence arcs anyway.
At a class reunion like this, all it amounts to is two guys yammering about nonsense at the top of their lungs.
(Sfx- Gahahahahahaah)
Gintoki: Who cares about guys no one really knows yelling bullshit about their pasts? There are plenty of punks who do that anyway.
Sakamoto: YOU TRYIN’ TO SAY THAT I’VE GOT A LOUD VOICE?!
THEN YOU CAN JUST STAY IN THE PAST FOREVER!!
(Sfx- Gahh *Graaab*)
(Sfx- Gofueeh *guugh*)
Katsura: Will you two please stop that?
It’s because you two act this way that we have no sort of backstory even after fifty volumes of material.
You have no interest in the past, and the Gorilla can’t seem to think of anything that we’ll have to enter our past arc today whether we like it or not.
Well…
Rather than entering I should say…
(Sfx- Gosooh *shfft*)

006
Katsura: Have a look at this letter.
To be frank, the idea of having a patriot class reunion was at least this time around not ours.
(Letter- It has been a while. How are all of you doing? Actually I happen to have disembarked in Edo so if you all have a moment I thought we could gather as old friends and have a drink..)
Katsura: It was our friend…
Who authored this letter that organized this gathering.
Gintoki: Who’s this?
I don’t remember him.
Katsura: I figured you wouldn’t remember him either…
That man..
During the patriot wars…
When everyone fought for the country, where everyone was a hero..there was a group of men who were able to get themselves out of any dangerous situation without fail….their names..?

007
{Shiroyasha}
{Sakata Gintoki}
{Young noble of fury}
{Katsura Kotarou}
{Kiheitai Viceroy}
{Takasugi Shinsuke}
{The loudest guy}
{Sakamoto Tatsuma}
Sakamoto: Hey! My title’s sorta mesesed up! Why am I the only one?! Isn’t that weird?!
These four were called the generation of miracles during the so called times of prosperity.
Gintoki: I truly don’t remember being called that.
Katsura: However, such a fortunate name was far too generous for us.
There was still one true hero…

008
Katsura: Hidden in our shadows unknown to anyone those who fought is someone who’s efforts supported us.
He is an assistant to us unknown to anyone else, who constantly was of service to us…a central figure from the shadows…
A nameless hero who is unknown to the masses…
Yes…the author of this letter and the organizer of this class reunion….
The illusionary fifth man, Kurono Tasuke.
Gintoki: HOLD THE FUCK UUUUUUUUP!!
(TN- This is a parody of a popular Jump manga called Kuroko no Basuke. Even the logo on the letter is the same from the manga.)
Gintoki: I’VE NEVER ONCE HEARD OF THIS GUY!! Well, no wait I have. BUT THAT’S BECAUSE IT’S A DIFFERENT MANGA!!
Katsura: I see. It wouldn’t be strange for Kurokono Tasuke to have ripped off his legend from another manga.
Gintoki: ITS OBVIOUSLY YOU WHO’S RIPPING THINGS OFF!! EVEN THE FRIGGIN LOGO IS INVOLVED IN THIS TRAVESTY!!

009
Sakamoto: I’m with you bud. I can’t remember the guy’s face at all.
Beyond that, I can’t remember anything he did or even what kind of guy he is. He must be pretty awesome to totally not leave an impression at all.
Gintoki: AND HOW DOES THAT MAKE HIM HEROIC?! HE SEEMS MORE NONEXISTANT TO ME!!
Katsura: However he called us to a class reunion, yet we all remember nothing about him.
I guess there’s just nothing else for us to do but enter a past reminiscence arc until he arrives.
Gintoki: Using a class reunion to enter a reminiscence arc?! What kind of lead up is that?!
And then there’s the important question of whether this guy even exists!
Katsura: He does. I know that Kurokono fought in the same war we did.
If we can’t remember his name, face or personality then we can at least get an idea of who he is through the work he accomplished.
‘Oh if he weren’t there at that time I would have been finished~’. If we search or memories like that we should be able to remember something.
Ah! There! I think I’ve managed to remember something!
Sakamoto: For reals Zura?!
Katsura: Yes…there was that time…

010
{Yes…that’s right…}
{It was in the midst of the patriot war…}
{During the Championships of Joi highschool’s inter high competition…}
Gintoki: THAT’S OBVIOUSLY WROOOOOOOOOONG!!!
IF IT WAS DURING THE PATRIOT WARS WHY ARE WE PLAYING BASKETBALL?!
{Back then I kept getting passed over in considerations because I wouldn’t cut my long hair…}
{So I never had a chance to be a regular player…}
Gintoki: THAT’S NOT IT AT ALL! DO YOU SERIOUSLY HAVE THE FREE TIME TO BE PLAYING BASKETBALL!?
Katsura: Back then even though I was powerless with my long hair I would still cheer on my comrades with all my might.
Gintoki: GET A FRIGGIN’ HAIRCUT!! No wait…GET OFF THE COURT AND INTO THE WAR!!
{Back then even though I was powerless with my long hair, I couldn’t even quench my thirst with pokari because when it was on ice it was too cool for me.}
Gintoki: Why would you as a back up player even need refreshingly cool pokari?! This is beginning to sound like a school outing or something!
(TN- Pokari sweat. It’s a sort of sports drink.)
{With my throat dried out and my sprit spent I thought I was done for until…}
???: Want a drink?

011
{I was assisted with a perfect condition sherbet pokari.}
{Given to me by Kurokono Tasuke….}
Gintoki: WHAT KIND OF ASSISTANCE IS THAAAAAAAAT!?
He walked a hundred steps over to give you a drink while you WATCH the game?! He should at least have helped you actually PLAY!
Katsura: That pokari back then was exquisite.
Gintoki: YOU JUST SIPPED POKARI WHILE CHILLING ON THE BENCH DAMMIT! WHAT KIND OF PAST ARC IS THIS?!
Katsura: No, we didn’t just have pokari, we also assisted the other players by cheering for them as loud as we could.
Sakamoto: And the loudest voice cheering was mine right Zura?
Gintoki: WHY THE HELL ARE YOU PLAYING BASKETBALL TOO?!
Sakamoto: That’s how things went down during the patriot wars. Once everything was done and stuff we’d all get back our energy by passing the ball and shootin’ some hoops.
Katsura: …Ah, did that happen?
Gintoki: When the war ended and times were tough, did you really do something this stupid?
Sakamoto: Naw, it wasn’t like that…but come to think of it that Kurokono dude was….
Katsura: What is it? Have you remembered something?!

012
{Yeah…that’s right…}
{It was in the midst of the patriot war…}
{Back then I was trying my damned hardest to rid the minister of the interior of those aliens…}
(Sfx- Puriyoriryoryoryo)
Gintoki: WHAT KIND OF PATRIOT WAR ARE YOU FIGHTING?!
{I was still young back then so I didn’t even notice it….}
{That while I was fightin’ the war somethin’ real terrible was waitin for me during the aftermath…}
Gintoki: Are you actually leading up to a ‘no-more-paper’ situation here?! How is this a majestic story dammit?!
{I wanted to create a way to save this country so I foolishly entered without having anything. It was pure despair man…}
{But then something caught my eyes.}
{I felt that I could use this to cleanse myself completely…}
Gintoki: POKARI AGAAAAAAAAAIN?!
IT’S BEEN ALL ABOUT POKARI FROM EARLIER WITH YOU GUYS HASN’T IT?!
ARE YOU GOING TO TELL ME THAT YOU USED THE POKARI TO WASH YOURSELF?!
{That’s right…I crossed paths with a certain man before battle…}

013
{And he was…}
(Sfx- Goro goro *rmmmble*)
Gintoki: THAT’S JUST ZURA FROM EARLIER ISN’T IT?!
Sakamoto: Oh, I figured that pokari from earlier was yours man.
Katsura: Yes…I drank too much of that refreshing pokari and it did a number on my stomach.
Sakamoto: Oh I get it, well I guess we managed to solve one past mystery huh?
Gintoki: WHO GIVES A RATS ASS ABOUT THE PASTS OF YOUR STOMACHS?! WHERE THE HELL IS KUROKONO?!
All you guys have been remembering this whole time is how much you like pokari!!
Don’t you have any memories of this guy helping you out during battle or something!?
Katsura: In battle?
Well there was that time..
Gintoki do you really not remember this?
It was the rear battle of Eiroku mountain…

014
{We were facing the Bakfu’s one thousand units with only our three hundred in the rear.
{Then we got word that the amanto’s military forces of three thousand were drawing towards us.}
{Our evacuation plans had run into a snag…}
{And Gintoki and I not wanting to abandon any of our comrades straddled back to take up the rear.}
Gintoki: Yeah, I remember that.
{When we decided to go to the back we were prepared for death.}
{We were in a deplorable situation so the two of us alone flew into battle…}
{As decoys so that our units to scatter and escape.}
{I don’t quite remember what happened after that but when we awoke all of the enemies who hadn’t been sliced down fled.}
{We had come to in a forest covered in blood and lying next to each other.}
{That we were still able to thirst was a mysterious thing.}
{That we were still able to breathe was a mysterious thing.}
{That tears still rolled down our cheeks…}
{Was a mysterious thing.}
{Even if it’s only now I think of it, I knew back then I was just happy.}
{I had protected my friends.}

015
{And we had found a place to buy pokari…}
Gintoki: AND THERE IT IS. THE POKARI SHOWS UP AGAIN!!
WHY IS THIS A STORY ABOUT HOW REFRESHING POKARI SAVED US?!
MORE LIKE, WHO THE FUCK BUYS POKARI IN THE MIDDLE OF A DAMN WARZONE?!
{We looked at the price and came to an understanding.}
{‘We’ve gotta have the pokari’ Gintoki muttered.}
Gintoki: I DIDN’T MUTTER THAT!! ARE YOU SAYING IT WAS GINTOKI WHO WANTED TO BUY IT?!
(Sign- Cold// 4500 yen.)
{‘It’s only four thousand yen’ Gintoki muttered.}
GIntoki: READ THE ATMOSPHERE!! THIS ISN’T THE TIME TO BUY POKARI DAMMIT!!
{‘I’ve got one thousand one hundred on me so i’ll buy two cans for us. You can just give me four thousand yen when you get it later. Don’t worry about the five hundred either…you can pay me back.’ I muttered.}
Gintoki: That’s so friggin long for whispering and muttering for God’s sake. Just forget about that and run for it!!
{I’m good with some Yakult. That’s only four thousand yen.’ Gintoki muttered.}
{But Yakult comes in a five can set for five hundred forty yen, and I’m going to give you one so that’s five hundred forty divided by five which is one hundred and eight yen, and four thousand five hundred yen minus one hundred and eight yen is four hundred and ninety two yen.’ I muttered. ‘Does that include taxes?’ Gintoki muttered.}
Gintoki: FORGET IT! THIS DIALOG IS GETTING TOO LONG!!

016
{Well for now I’ll just pay you back forty three hundred yen when I get paid if you can wait that long.}
{My condition was getting worse so we returned to camp.}
Gintoki: What? This is going to continue?
{Through my thin consciousness…}
{I saw the faces of those I protected looking at me.}
Gintoki: Ah! He’s going to come out here isn’t he!? We’re going to see Kurokono Tasuke!
{Their expressions were all quiet…}
{I tried to find words to calm them…}
{My throat was dry and my breathing was labored…}
{So I could only find one word to say to them.}
{I gave Gintoki a can of yakult so he owes me one hundred eight yen…could you all let him know that? We did agree after all…}
Gintoki: THAT’S ENOUGH OF TALKING ABOUT THIS!!
YOU’RE NEAR DEATH AND YOU CAN STILL GO ON ABOUT THAT?
(Handwritten- I’ll give him four hundred three thousand yen later…let him know that for me.}
Gintoki: Moreover you said you only had one word for them!! That’s almost a conversation isn’t it?! What happened to your worsening condition?!

017
{Eh? Dude, he owes me five hundred forty yen…}
{And now its one hundred eight?}
Gintoki: What are you guys talking about during a war?! What’s with this development?!
{He’s ripping us off Sakamoto!!
{That damned Gintoki, he ripped me off with no intention of paying me back from the beginning!!}
Gintoki: I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT!! I DON’T REMEMBER THIS!
{What are you people talking about? He’d never do that.}
Gintoki: Ah! There! Now we’re talking!! He’s going to expose these lies for what they really are! Go for it Kuroko..
{The one who gave you guys yakult was me.}
(Handwritten- I’ve lent him money once too.)
Gintoki: TAKASUGIIIIII!! ET TUUUUU?!
Katsura: That will be four thousand five hundred.
Sakamoto: I want my five hundred forty dude.
Gintoki: JUST WHERE HAS THIS STORY ENDED UP?! WHERE’S KUROKOOOO!?
Sakamoto: Just fork it over.
Gintoki: HELL NO! I don’t even know what you idiots are talking about?!
Moreover that bastard Takasugi would never give anyone yakult, even after a hundred steps!!
What kind of class reunion is this supposed to be?!
Lady: Kind sirs…
I have broght..
One more person to attend your gathering…
(Side text- Here’s Kurokooooo?!)
