Is Gintama worth watching? It's 200 episodes. I don't tHink I can make that kind of commitment.
it's worth it, first couple episodes were weird as lot stuff was just thrown randomly at you but found out later it starts that way since it was first a manga that got popular enough for a anime, so it was a fan service thing for manga readers.
i stop watching around ep 158 not because i lost interests just too much of one thing tend burn me out. it still good in short burst of viewing, the nice thing is the shows 90% comedy and very random. most arcs are very short one episodes stand alone thu some can span 3-4 with a random mix of the show getting serious and also has sad episodes that are good too.
my favorite is the movie really good mix of action an story. it a future were gintama disappeared years ago an no one knew why the world also slowly dying from a unknown illness with no way to stop it. also even thu gintama is their trying find out why this world broken no one see him as who he is, they see a old Japanese man.
your not suppose to watch the movie till around ep 200 i think when that when the movie first aired, as lot the side character it shows will have no meaning an the show loses some impact.
Not even in the face of Armageddon. Never compromise.
