** After episode 306, a particularly [[TearJerker tear jerking]], heart-wrenching episode, Ginpachi-sensei comments on the fact that doing the quirky FourthWallMailSlot is pretty inappropriate, and they're doing it anyway. And then turn a heartfelt flashback into a poop joke.

* AfterTheEnd: Effectively. The setting is an epilogue to a great, big [[ShonenDemographic Shounen hero story]] where the protagonist now has to readjust after the war he and his friends fought ended in failure, leaving aliens to take over the world. [[SubvertedTrope Somewhat subverted]], as it's not nearly the dystopian hellhole one might expect. Gintoki just has a tough time paying the bills.
