View Full Version : Move over, Excel Saga! Gin Tama 135 is the best spoof of the genre I've seen in years!

Saw this sucker legally on Crunchyroll, and I highly recommend it to any 80s/early90s anime fans, since I doubt anyone watching anime after that period will "get" it. Yeah, it has a few jokes about the recent stuff, but it's clearly appealing to a certain audience. Why the hell can't more new shows be as hilarious as this episode?!

Pardon my french, but you don't happen to have heard of Bobobo-Bo Bo-Bobo, have you?
Bobobo pulls some laughs at first, but I thought it wore itself out really quickly. Shows like this need a little more balance to really work for more than a few episodes. Of course that is only my opinion.

Bo^7 is good at spoofing the shonen cliches, but that episode of Gin Tama spoofs the cliches, the gimmicks, the brain-storming, and more.
