** Also in Episode 75, a recap of the first half of the second season, features a fake movie trailer for the Benizakura arc. Shinpachi yells and Gin for trying to trick fans into beliving a movie of the arc would be made and Kagura snarks that Creator/{{Sunrise}} could just do a [[BitingTheHandHumor recut of the episodes]] just like they've done [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Gundam]] in the past. The first Gintama movie released after the first series ended was ''literally'' a remake of the arc.

** The English dub was well-received but the decision to start it at season 3 was met to a lot of criticism. Of course there's the fact that fans would have preferred to have the series dubbed from the beginning since it is the most logical decision and it would allow the voice actors to get used to their characters which is especially important for a long-runner. Some will also point out that since ''Gintama'' is more niche than other long-runners most of the viewers will be fans of the series or VO fans so there isn't much to lose in starting it earlier. There's also the fact that many of the plot elements later on in season 3 require an understanding of what has occurred in the earlier episodes. Others however are just happy that a dub has finally come out and argue that much like what {{Creator/Funimation}} did with ''Manga/OnePiece'' dubbing it at a recent point will draw more audiences in.

** Tsukuyo is one of the more divisive characters in the fandom. She's still popular enough to rank 10th and 11th on the character polls, but she is also hated by some fans who see her as either a SpotlightStealingSquad or a [[DieForOurShip threat to rivalling ships involving Gintoki]], sometimes even both.

** Tsukuyo is one of the more divisive characters in the fandom. She's still She is popular enough to rank 10th with a lot of people and 11th on regularly places highly in the character polls, but popularity polls for a female character. But she is also hated by some fans who see her as either a SpotlightStealingSquad or a [[DieForOurShip threat to rivalling ships involving Gintoki]], sometimes even both.



* CounterpartComparison: If it wasn't for that [[WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}} Vinny]] first started streaming in 2010 could one probably see him as a partial inspiration for Gintoki's personality.

* SuperlativeDubbing: In contrast to Sentai's dub of the movie which was very divisive, Ocean's dub for Crunchyroll was met to very positive reception from day 1. The biggest concern which was the joke translations was intensively worked on by Crunchyroll themselves who provided a script that was faithful to the Japanese version while having funny new jokes in place of the old ones. Made even better is that Karl Willems is the director who is known for working on some of Ocean's best dubs.

* AbandonShipping: Nobume & Isaburo's relationship turned out to be parental. He even gave her the name intended for his real daughter, whom was never born.

* AbandonShipping: Many people who shipped Nobume & Isaburo's and Isaburo together abandoned the ship when their relationship turned out to be parental. He even gave her the name intended for his real daughter, whom was never born.



* CrackPairing: A series with this many characters who regularly interact with each other is bound to be rife in pairings, but the Japanese fandom really likes to get creative by shipping Sakamoto and Takasugi (who very rarely show) with the likes of Kondo and Hijikata (whom they've barely interacted with), as well as with ''each other'' (they were old comrades but they've only interacted with each other in a so far unanimated manga chapter). There were also doujin artists who published the Gintoki and Hasegawa pairing long before episode 239. Shinpachi has also been paired up with Sakamoto, Takasugi, and various unexpected Shinsengumi members for some reason or another. Other odd pairings include: Hijikata/Katsura and Elizabeth/Gintoki.

** A problem that many shounen dramedies run into when they're in serialization-- that the series focuses more on the drama and less on the comedy. The tone shift isn't that bad in ''Gintama'', but fans still criticize it for trying to be a serious battle manga when it never presented itself as such, while others believed that it was just the natural progression and that its battles and character development make it just as memorable as its jokes. Of course you have detractors on either sides, saying that the comedy was underwhelming and that they're happy rhe stakes are getting higher or that the drama turns ''Gintama'' into a generic shounen and would rather get back to the comedy.
