Colloquium: Kai and Miharusshi Talk Gintama

op

In celebration of Gintama’s return from hiatus, I, or actually, we decided to write another post on Gintama, this time with miharussi of Anime Vios.

Ginpachi-sensei will teach you the meaning of life.

Note: Since it’s April Fool’s day, time for a little ridiculousness.

Gintama is random and bizarre, but at the end of the day, underneath the wacky facade, the show teaches you important life lessons, which, believe me or not, enrich one’s lifestyle. Below are a few key points I learned from the anime personally and following them in real life, had enriched my lifestyle tremendously. So please follow them too, as I’m sure it will enrich yours as well, I guaran-damn-tee it.
