Gintama 409

Lessons of the Beam Saber style.

+ posted by Bomber D Rufi as translation on Jul 25, 2012 12:30 | Go to Gintama

-> RTS Page for Gintama 409

If you cried at the end of this chapter, you completely missed the point of this arc, and Gintama itself. For each tear you shed, go back ten lessons and re-read.

Hi wa mata noboru only.

Aaaaand requests are open again~ Read here for details.

Lesson 409: Lessons of the Beam Saber style.

(Side text- In a flash!!)


Obi: I’ve seen it…

The future of the Tendou Mushin style….


Really become strong…

Shin-boy, Otae-chan.



Tae: One blow.

Not! Yoda: Kenofi’s signal…

Has ceased to respond…

No—no way..

That Galaxy sword master…

The weapon we raised ourselves….

Dammit, we wasted so much money on creating that idiot…

To think that our plans would be decimated by a bunch of earth monkeys…


Not! Yoda: The life that had once been cast to the wayside…

We turned it into the galaxy’s number one sword…no the galaxy’s greatest weapon…

And in the end he was completely useless…

No matter how much money you toss at a failure it will always be a failure it seems….

(Sfx- Jyakki *shick*)

Kondo: Shut up.

Don’t open that filthy mouth of yours again.

That guy isn’t a failure…

Nor is he a weapon.

At the very end…

He’s just a returning Samurai…

A samurai…

From the country of samurai.


Kondo: You tried to make light of a person’s life and their bonds…

And for that I’ll never forgive any of you.

Don’t think that this is something that one or two heads rolling will satisfy.

Arrest them!!

(Sfx- Gogogogo *rmmmble*)

Shinsengumi: What’s this shaking?

(Sfx- Gogogogo *rmmmble*)

Not! Yoda: Heheh..

Too bad gentlemen.

You monkeys won’t get the chance to judge us.

(Sfx- Gouunnn *vooon*)


Obi: That was…

One splendid strike.

Shin-boy, You’ve become plenty strong…

I’m as happy as can be.

Shinpachi: You’re lying…

You were always like that, Hajime-nii.

In the past when when I’d be at the end of my patience,

You would always allow me the final strike.

Just so I’d stop crying about losing….right?

Obi: I was…

Serious this time.

I heard it and ripped through this cold iron..

Your voice Shin-boy, Otae-chan’s voice…

Coach Sakata’s voice…

Even hidden deep within this iron…

My soul heard it resonating.


Obi: It was thanks to you all, in the very end…

That this side o’ me got to see that strike.

It’s cause everyone was calling…

That was able to come to see your true strength.

It’s why…

I felt coming back here was something I absolutely had to do.


Thank you very hamuda.

Kagura: If that is the case…

Do not go anywhere.

You should stay here.

So that everyone will be able to do the beam saber style.

So that I can properly prepare you a bath.

You should not say this is the end.

Shinpachi and Boss lady will not be able to follow you any more if that is the case.


Obi: Don’t worry yer pretty head.

I’ll be back.

I just forgot I got something I need to return to space.

(Sfx- Guhh!)

Not! Yoda: Heheh…

That’s why we call the lot of you monkeys.

Did you really believe we wouldn’t have a trump card?

Even if Kenofi’s machine part should cease to operate..

The energy stored within him won’t just disappear.

Right now he has enough power to destroy a planet.

He’s literally a giant exploded warhead.


Not! Yoda: What do you think…

Will happen if we give the bomb an impetuous to explode?

(Sfx- Meri meri *grinnnd*)

Kondo: You bastaaaaaard!!

(Sfx- Zawaaah *sfft*)

Kyuubee: Ugaaaaah!!!

(Handwritten- Don’t touch me!!)

Kondo: Gyaaaaah!!

(Sfx- Dosaaah *thud*)

Kondo: Thh--_This is?

Toujo(?): Are you two okay?

Kondo: Toshiii!

Stop them!!

(Sfx- Gagooonn *clank*)


Kondo: Those guys…..

Are going to cause Obi Won to explode…

And destroy the earth!!

(Sfx- Zaahh *sfft*)

Obi: So…

Let me return what I forgot..

After that…

I’ll be back..

So until then…

Coach Sakata…

Imma need you to take care of everyone for me.


(Sfx- Zaath *shfft*)

Gintoki: Let’s get going you guys.

Are you listening to me?

Listen you guys….

I hope you aren’t forgetting the lessons of the Beam saber style…

Tae: Don’t worry…

There’s no need to worry about anything Obi Won nii-sama..



Tae: Not going to cry…



You will…


Obi: Yeah…

I sure will….

Be back to meet you guys gain.


(Sfx- DOooon *Thooom*)

Hijikata: Fiiire!!

Nail them before they fire their cannon at Obi Won!!

Not! Yoda: Fuwahahahahah!! It’s too late monkeys!

The beam cannon’s energy charge time has passed!

We’ve already found out where Kenofi’s coordinate axis is!!

(Sfx- Pipipipipi *beepebepbeeb*)


Not! Yoda: N—NO way!!

Kenofi is….!!

(Sfx- Doshhh *zzzttt*)

(Sfx- Meki meki meki *Grrrrrnd*)



Not! Yoda: No way!!

That man…

He’s pointing the beam cannon at us!!

Fire!! Who cares what he does, just fire!!

Stop him at once!!

(Sfx- Dodooooh *fwooooom*)


{Listen up you two…}

{Tears are great cause they wash away tough times, sad feelings all together.

{Ain’t that convenient?}

{Though someday you guys are gonna be adults right?}

{Life is…}

{Gonna have some things that you just can’t cry away.}

{Some things are just gonna be too sad or painful..}

{So you can’t just sit around cryin’.}

{Since there are some pains that are important.}

{That’s why…}

{A truly strong person…}


{When they want to cry…}

{They laugh instead.}

{Through the pain..}

{Through the sadness…}

{They embrace all of that…}

{And still..}


{Do that and you’ll find others who will walk with you.}

{If you want to cry now, that’s fine…}

{But someday you two…}


{Will have to become strong samurai…}

{Like that.}

Thanks BDR. I have to point out though that your comment at the start is a bit spoilerish. It would be best if you would include it at the bottom instead of at the beginning. You've made it obvious that Obi hasn't survived which was to be expected but not absolutely certain. It could have gone many other ways.

I didn't specifically say anything about anyone. You're assuming I mean tears of sadness, but one can cry tears of happiness too. My comment is (sarcastically) echoing the sentiment set forward by this arc that tears are okay, but those who are truly strong laugh.

Yeah, I know, hence I said "a bit spoilerish". It's nothing rage worthy, I'm just pointing it out in hopes that in the future you won't reveal something more spoilerish.

I'll take that into advisement, though as well it doesn't pay to read too deeply into anything said above the 'For Hi wa mata noboru only' warning. Those are just my usually facetious opinions of the chapter. :-P
