What is “Gintama”?
Gintama portrays the story of a fine samurai, Gintoki who lives in Japan which is invaded by an alien army called Amanto or Sky people, who have taken control of the whole country and with the help of Shogun, they have confiscated all the weapons from the Samurais and forced them to work under their Regime. But Gintoki is stubborn and has high morale for the samurais and so wherever he goes, he causes trouble to the invaders.
One day, Gintoki and his freelancer friend, Shinpachi rescues a young alien girl from Yakuza who turns out to have super strength and later joins them both to make a trio called “Yorozuya” and so the great adventure starts.
