Remembering Love: Gintama and The Art of Randomness
This post is dedicated to TRazor’s project, Remembering Love, which is a series of post where bloggers blog about their favorite anime they rewatched. This project will be going on for the whole month of May, and each post will had to be put out on Sunday.
In my timezone here, I’m kinda way overdue though. For the first week, I’ll be going for a more unusual choice, Gintama.
Humors in anime, are always a hit and miss. Sometimes the timing is wrong, or sometimes, the execution is wrong, resulting in “awkward humors.” If there’s any anime that actually do comedy justice though, it’s Gintama. The anime’s strongest points isn’t the bizarre settings, the epic fight scenes, nor the addicting music, but it is the comedy which manifested Gintama into an anime with such grand pleasures.
Gintama’s ultimate weapon is their randomness. The anime also make a lot of random parodies too, and is one of the better show in applying parodies into one’s shows. If you had watched a lot of popular titles, chances are, you would have a good laugh watching the parodies in play in Gintama. The show also uses a wide array of parodies, not just limiting themselves to eastern anime. It made references to popular manga, music, athletes and even iconic figures,
Because of Gintama, every other comedy themed anime I watched had been disappointing, perhaps none can defeat the phenomenal execution of Gintama’s comedy. Truthfully enough, Gintama can easily overshadow any comedy anime to ever exist in the anime world, and only a few would at best, barely put up a good fight.
Gintama will forever be the best and most humorous anime I will ever had the chance to experience. It seems like it has ended now.. but who knows.. Gintama is infamous with their trolling after all.
