[Simulcast] Gintama Episode #203 Review
Review by Chris Beveridge
Mania Grade: B-
Sadly, the resetting of everything back to the norms and the plan to latch onto the manga adaptations again means we'll be back on track in the next episode like we never really left the show. Which isn't a bad thing since it's a case of why mess with success. Granted, I would have liked for several of these changes to have stuck simply because it would have shaken up the narrative a bit and added some new potential twists, but Gintama is a show that knows it's not being held back by anything. Whatever they want to do, it can be done through some gimmick or trick. Much of it is very reminiscent of Urusei Yatsura for me in this respect, but I'm still not completely latched onto any of the characters since they're all so self serving. It turns the show into a piece of work where I just enjoy watching them freak out or being abused. And there's nothing wrong with that.
