Gintama doesn't really have any arcs longer that maybe 6 episodes though. :lol: Besides, wouldn't a compilation movie compressing more episodes be worse because they'd have to cut out more of the story? If they already owned those episodes of the TV series, I could see people skipping out on this movie I guess (although it does have a few extra scenes including new jokes and a very high quality action scene). But as I said, the episodes this movie covers haven't been released on R1 DVD, so I bet people will be more inclined to pick this up.
