Gintama ("Silver Soul") is an ongoing manga written and created by Hideaki Sorachi. It has been running since December 2003 in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump. WARNING: the sections below contain unmarked spoilers.


"The samurai didn't stand a chance. First, the aliens invaded Japan. Next, they took all the jobs. And then they confiscated everyone's swords. So what does a hotheaded former samurai like Sakata "Gin" Gintoki do to make ends meet? Take any odd job that comes his way, even if it means losing his dignity."

from One Manga.

i'm breaking out, last chance to lose control

Takasugi Shinsuke was a former comrade of Gintoki and Katsura and now serves as the major antagonist in the normally comedic series. Leading a radical Joui faction called the "Kiheitai", he's known as the "most dangerous man in both the Joui faction and amongst the radicals". Shinsuke has earned his dangerous reputation through the assassination of several Bakufu main officers, along with his plans of overthrowing the Amanto. Shinsuke's believes that the only way to save the Amanto-infested world is to destroy it.

it's bugging me, grating me and twisting me around

Katsura Kotarou is another resistor of the Amanto and has gained a significant number of followers. Kotarou is a wanted man due to his terrorist activities against the Bakufu and is constantly on the run from the Shinsengumi. His initial methods of overthrowing the Amanto involved violence (such as explosives) but has changed after realizing that there are important people to him in Edo. Now, Kotarou no longer wants to destroy the country but change it by using less extreme means.
