And now the most fun part of Gintama...not knowing what the hell will happen after Golden week or Christmas/New Year.

Hi wa mata noboru only.


(Side text- From Shimaru’s inner investigations diary…)
{O month X Day.}
(Bottom text- The June issue of Ultimate Jump out on May 2nd (Friday)will include A list price 500 yen (tax included) Miracle Battle Carddass ‘Sakata Gintoki’ card!!)
{I heard a noise in the mess hall after midnight and went to investigatez.}
Kondo: Hmm…I wonder where on here would be a decent place to make a cut?
{I witnessed the Chief cooking whilest starkly nudez.}
(Handwritten- I never can get this right…)
(Handwritten- No matter how much I do it.)
{The next day on the menu in the mess hall…}
{A strangely cut Konyaku appeared.}
{But everyone partook of this…so it must have been tasty…}
(TN- Konyaku is a grey gelatin-like substance with very little taste. I’m not going to imagine what Kondo does with his, and I advise you don’t either.)

002
Kondo: After a lively discussion, I believe we’ve come to a verdict.
Saitou Shimaru is completely innocent.
Adjourned!!
Someone: LIKE HELL IT IIIIIIIIIS!!!
THE FUCK DID YOU DO TO THAT KONYAKU, CHIEEEEEEEF?!
No…it couldn’t be the Konyaku from back then right?!
Okita: Did you bastards not hear him? Court’s adjourned.
Anyone who still doubts Shimaru-niisan after this can take it up with us.
Right Hijikata-san?

003
Hijikata: Y—yeah. I can’t see any way he’s violated orders and he does exemplary work in his duty.
There aren’t any apparent sins he’s committed.
???: What’s with you suddenly being Commander Saitou’s buddy?! You went and violated something with him watching didn’t you?! Huffing mayo in the middle of the night right?!
Okita: We’ve been Shimaru-niisan’s allies since the very beginning.
You guys are full of suck…you really distrusted Shimaru-niisan despite him being our buddy?
???: Yeah? And who the fuck poisons his friends?! The suck filled bastard who’s talking!!
Kondo: Please guys, just stop it! I can’t stand to see friends fighting amongst one another!! I can’t bear to see anyone get hurt!!
Can’t we just end the suffering with the Konyaku and let bygones be bygones?!
???: No, because the Konyaku is the biggest problem here!!
Just give it to us straight!! What did you do the Konyaku?!
(Sfx- Gyah gyah)
{Guh…Damned AfuRO.}
{To think you’d use your internal investigations to pick at your friends weaknesses and ironically gain more allies…}
{If I don’t do something about this problem quickly then all fault they found in this man will be lost. To think he strived to gain knowledge of other’s misdeeds…}

004
{However I won’t just sit idly by and let this go….}
Katsura: It’s as you all say!! This situation is a direct result of Commander Saitou’s wrongdoings!! Do you need any further proof?
This man has taken his special internal investigations to grasp at the group’s weaknesses and manipulate you all into destroying yourselves from the inside out!
The route of all of this evil is this man…Saitou Shimaru!!
Everyone you must do what is right and regale judgment on this filthy traitor to the Shinsengumi!!
Shimaru: Everyone…
It is true that during my work investigating that I gathered unpleasant information about all of you.
However it was not my intention to use this information as a means of coercion.
For you see, speaking at this session of court about what I saw up until now..
Is something I genuinely did not want to do from the bottom of my heart.
However if you should want to continue my court session…
I have no choice but to continue to profess my innocence by continuing to speak upon this topic of conversation.
And it is within this that I may…
Have to reveal yours…all of your secrets as well..
Everyone: Welp that’s a wrap everyooooooone!!!
(Handwritten- That’s a wrap!!)
(Sfx- Gaahh *fwap*)Katsura(?): WAAAAAAAAAAAIT!!!

005
Katsura: What extent of secrets are you louses shouldering?! What kind of darkness lurks behind you!?
Dude: It’s like the Chief said…we just don’t want to see anyone get hurt…
More important than Commander Saitou is keeping our units together…the Shinsengumi cannot be annihilated..
Katsura: What kind of police officers are you!?
I refuse to acknowledge this!!
This man has slandered my name by associating me with the patriots!!
If I allow this to continue then my name as a warrior will be shattered!
Chief! Give me the order to purge this traitor from our ranks immediately!
Kondo: C—calm down Hashira-san!
Katsura: Are you saying I should consent to this man keeping his neck attached to his body?
Kondo: Hashira-san, we haven’t decided whether Shimaru is a traitor or not..
(Sfx- Bun *fwap*)
Hijikata: Then we’ll just have them decide with their lives on the line face to face..
(Sfx- Chakii *clack*)
Hijikata: And see if the traitor will be purged.
Kondo: Toshi!!
Hijikata: I’ve grown sick and tired of all this back and forth.

006
Hijikata: To survive here means being prepared to live and die by the blade.
It ain’t a platform for discussion. No one here’s going to be won over by an argument.
If you’ve got something to say use your sword to say it.
The one who loses is the traitor….
The one who wins is just.
Nice and easy don’t ya think?
That blade…
Is an extension of your justice.
Show us the proof of the justice within the third unit.
(Side text- The true Afro is…?!)
GINTAMA
Lesson 491: Afurou and AfuRo.
SORACHI HIDEAKI
Hijikata: That’s what the…
Shinsengumi is all about.

007
Katsura: Hmph. Intriguing.
We can settle our score from back then.
Here and now, right?
Kondo: W—
Waaaaaaait!!
Hashira-saaaaaaan!!!
(Sfx- Dosuuhhh *fwisssh*)
Kondo: Shimaruuuuuuuuu!!!
(Sfx- Gakkiiiin *claaash*)
Shinpachi: This is bad Gin-saaaaaan!!
Hashira-san and Saitou-san have…
(Sfx- Kaaan kaaan kaaan *claaang claaang claaang*)
Shinpachi: Seriously started a swordfight!!!

008
Katsura: Oraaaaaaahhh!!!
Shinpachi: Katsura-san is serious!!
Meanwhile Saitou-san..
Has a strict defense!!
Gintoki: What the hell is that moron doing? No way…is it related to before…
{He isn’t just a man I can converse with…but the only person I may be able to share a friendship with…}
{I can only be friends with Hashira Afurouz.}
Gintoki: This guy…
Kagura: Gin-chan. What are you doing? You will let me borrow that, yes?
Gintoki: eh?
Kagura: You have to hurry and say something or else. We promised to speak so that it would match his moves, yes? We must keep that.
Gintoki: Eh? Are you frickin’ serious? He’s waiting for me to say something before he goes on the attack? Does this guy have ass for brains?
Kagura: It does not matter. Quickly! Quickly!
Fuwahahaah! Hashira. Is that the best you can do, uhuh?
Were you practicing swords to stop flies? With that move you cannot cut me or a fly, yes?
(Sfx- jaykiii *clank*)
Shinpachi: He moved!! He finally moved!
Kagura: I will show you yes? This is my turn!

009
(Sfx- Buuun *bzzzz *)
Shinpachi: Who told you to actually cut down flies?!
He’s gotten confused with the actual meaning of that phrase!!
(Sfx- Bahh *fwap*)
Gintoki: Whoops! I apologize, I got the big files and little flies confused!
Of course there is no difference between flies and yourself is there!
Katsura: You intend to insult me to that extent?!
Gintoki: Now that I’ve dealt with one infestation, it’s your turn!!
I DIDN’T MEAN IT IN THAT WAY!!!
(Sfx- Fuunn *bzzz*)
Gintoki: WHY THE HELL DID YOU JOIN IN BY CUTTING DOWN FLIES?!!
Katsura: I win. I managed to cut three of them.
Gintoki: THE FUCK KIND OF FIGHT ARE YOU GUYS HAVING?!
Shimaru: And now that those flies have been cleaned up…
I intend to clean the stain that is you up permanently!
Katsura: Shall we bury it here?
Shinpachi: WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU PEOPLE CLEANING UP?!
Katsura: It would be bad if one of us were to step on this during combat…
KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE PRIZE!! NEVER LEAVE YOUR BACK TO THE ENEMY SAITOUUU!!
Shinpachi: It was a trap!!

010
Shinpachi: Saitou-saaaan!!
(Sfx- Hyagaaaahhh *fwaaaaaf*)
Shimaru: My deepest apologies, for it is you who has allowed the prize to escape!!
Katsura: You’re right. I acted in error and missed this completely empty patch right here. It makes burying this poop all that much easier.
(Sfx- Zasuu *dssh*)
Shinpachi: WHAT’S COMPLETELY EMPTY IS YOUR THOUGHT PROCESSES!!
Katsura: HOWEVER IT IS YOU I INTEND TO BURY SAITOOOOU!!
(Sfx- Gasnnn *thokk*)
Kagura: Right here, yes?!
This is it, yes?
Let me do this Gin-chan!!
I’ve caught you in my trap Hashira!! Now take this…the AfuRo style secret techinique…
Z Slicerrrrrrrrrr!!!
(Sfx- Chiraah *glance*)
Gintoki: Uh…don’t look at us man. We don’t know how to do the Z slicer either.
Kagura: Take this!! Z sliceeeer!!
Gintoki: Uh, yeah. This isn’t working. More like, Kagura did you even think this Z slicer thing out?
Kagura: The Z-slicer is the Z- slicer, yes?
Gintoki: …You’re going to need to find a way to simplify that explanation even more kiddo.
Kagura: As a memento from Hades, yes? I will tell you. The ‘Z-slicer’ is a slashing move that hits like a ‘Z’.
Can you avoid my Z-sliceeeeer?
Gintoki: Dude he can’t do that. By the time he figures out how to perform the attack the enemy’s going to have figured it all out.
Kagura: Then take this! Z-wave!
Gintoki: …Dude, what’s that?
Kagura: As a memento from hades. I will tell you. The Z-wave is a—a thing that somehow fires a wave from the hands, yes?
Gintoki: Uh…yeah. He can’t do that. He’s still got his hands full figuring out the Z-slicer.

011
Kagura: Then take this! Z release!!
Gintoki: You’re only changing one part of those dammit! What’s Z release?!
Kagura: As a memento from Hades I will tell you. The Z release is releasing all world desires. And creating a state of Z, yes?
Shinpachi: HE REALLY IS USING Z RELEASE!!
You took so long figuring out your secret move that he actually entered into a state of Z!! Oh crap, and now he’s completely open to attack!
Katsura: Th—this is the Z release?!
He looks completely defenseless as he sleeps, but could this be in fact the ‘zero stance’?!
Shinpachi: He’s looking into this really deeply!!
Gintoki: Come at me any way you want. I can see right through all of your moves…including your next one.
Shinpachi: …It really does feel like he can see me!!
Katsura: Th—this is not good. He appears full of openings but It feels like there’s not a single gap I can attack…
Shinpachi: There are plenty if you look?!
Katsura: If I attack him in the zero stance, I’m forfeiting my life…if that’s the case then..
I have no choice but to do this!!
(Sfx- Basaaah *fwaaap*)
Shinpachi: WHHHHHHHHY?!
What good comes from you assuming Z release?!
Shinsengumi: Th—this is what it’s like to watch two masters go at it…it’s so quiet…almost as if they’re sleeping…
Shinpachi: BUT THEY REALLY ARE SLEEPING!! WHAT KIND OF FIGHT IS THIS?! HOW DO WE DECIDE WHO WINS?!

012
Katsura: Ngh..
It’s no good…sleeping is difficult like this.
Shinpachi: OF COURSE IT IS!! YOU’RE ON A BATTLE FIELD!!
Katsura: Its’ as I thought. If I don’t achieve Z release then…
(Sfx-Zupooohh *poooop*)
Shinpachi: So now it’s zura releaaaase?!
(TN- I just thought about it but…Z release is ‘Z kai’ in Japanese. Which means this is all a thinly veiled joke at DBZ kai’s expense. Well played Sorachi. Well played. Also ‘Z’ or ‘zura’ means wig for the millionth time.)
Katsura: Yes…now I can find my own state of Z.
I’ll find Z’s well this way.
(Sfx- Zaaahzaaah *Sffft*)
???: That’s sooo right.
Shinsengumi: Now…
Allow us to escort you to a place where you can achieve Z release for all of eternity.
Z(ura.)
(Sfx- DOooon *BOOOM*)
Shinsengumi: Uwaaah!!

013
Katsura: Saitouuuuu!!
(Sfx- Geho geho *cough cough*)
Katsura: Just a bit more and I would have been completely within the Shinsengumi’s ranks! But now you’ve managed to unwrap my true identity…
Shinpachi: Uh no! You dug that hole and leapt in all on your own!!
Because of your interference I wasn’t able to achieve my first goal but I did fulfill the requirements for my auxiliary objective!
(Sfx- Pyoko *fwop*)
Elizabeth: Katsura-san, preparations are Ok.
Katsura: Hahahahah! Did you fools really believe you had won Elizabeth over?
While you were absorbed with my activities…
Elizabeth placed bombs within your headquarters!!
And now all I need to do is press this switch and your HQ as well as your efforts will collapse in a pile of rubble!!
(Sfx- GOooohhh *fwooooom*)
(Sfx- Hyoooohh *fwoooosh*)
Shinpachi: S—saitou-san made a move without us telling him to…!

014
Gintoki: Seems like…
Our words aren’t necessary anymore.
Have you finally found the words you need for him…
AfuRo?
Katsura: We’re leaving Elizabeth!!
(Sfx- Dasuu *dasssh*)
Hijikata: Shimaruuuu!!
We’ll deal with the bomb.
You pursue him…
Catch that traitor!!
You are…
The third unit commander!!
(Sfx- Dooon *fwoooom*)
{To the Yorozouya-san…}
{Thank you so much for bearing with me and my troubles…}
{For this long period of timez.}

015
{I know that you worked very hard to give me all sorts of advice…}
{But I have come to realize that perhaps speaking to others is frankly something I can’t do.}
{I am just far too frightfully nervous to engage others in conversation.}
{It is too much of a chore for me to think of the right thing to sayz.}
{However the pain in my heart that I once experienced has all but fadedz.}
{It is true that up until now, I haven’t shared a single word with another person once in my whole life…}
{But rather than exchanging words with many others…}
{I have had the experience of being blade to blade…}
{Against many worthy opponents….}
{Not with words but with pure emotion riding on our blades have I come to communicate with them.}
{And if daresay so myself….this battlefield…}
{Is where I’ve found myself easily able to convey thousands of words effortlesslyz.}
{So I have resigned myself to cease my resistance and stop running from itz.}
{Even if it means I may have to turn this blade of mine against friends who have violated protocol and must be cut down.}

016
{Even if one day…}
{I have to cut down the very first friend I ever made with this blae…}
{The echo of the constant clashing of a sword against another…}
{Shall be the only words that he and I need.}
{Because I am the taciturn commander of the Shinsengumi’s Third Unit…Saitou Shimaru…}
{And these are my words.}
(Sfx- POchiann *clatter*)
(Sfx- Bushiii *blllrsh*)
Katsura: Hmph…
You can’t pursue me with those legs anymore.
(Sfx- Bikisshiii *crackle*)
Katsura: But…
My meticulous planning is all for naught now.
Shall we do this again sometime…?
(Sfx- Bururuu *veeeen*)

017
Hijikata: Hey Shimaru…Seems like we were able to put the kibosh on Katsura’s bombs.
There’s still one special unit here that seems to be a time bomb, and we can’t get it to stop.
There are wires going from A to Z on it…and we can’t tell which one to cut.
If you managed to capture Katsura somehow, get him to spit out the info.
Katsura: Tell them to sever all of them other than Z.
Hmph…
Cutting ‘Z’ down is my duty.
Don’t think that this little tradeoff is the end.
Saitou Shimaru…your ‘Z’ is one that I will relish cutting down with my own two hands.
Until then, don’t forget to keep that afro of yours on tight.
(Sfx- Zaahhh *Sffft*)
Katsura: Farewell.
Hijikata: Hey Shimaru…we ain’t got time….
Which one do we cut out from A to Z?
Hurry up and say something!
Hey Shimaru!! You listening?!
Say something!!
Shimaru: Z….
Hijikata: Awwright. Cut Z!!
(Sfx- Zugagagaga *dsssssh*)
(Sfx- Piii *beep*)
(Sfx- Zazazaaza *zzzzzzzzt*)
(Sfx- Gara gara *clatter*)
(Sfx- Pusu pusu *crackle crackle*)
HIjikata: AIN’T WE ALL STUCK WITH AFROS IN THE EEEEND?!
(Handwritten- In the eeeend….//Eeeend//eeeeend)
(Sfx- Hiraaah pasaaah *fwap fap*)
(Paper- And those are my words.// Hashira Afurouz// Yorozuya-sanz)
(Side text- Friendship written and marked with a Z!!)
