Gintama, Gintama’, Gintama’ Extension
Gintama is a story of a handyman named Gintoki, a samurai with no respect for rules set by the invaders, who’s ready to take any job to survive.
He and his gang, however, are also among the very few who have not forgotten the morale of a swordsman. Wherever they go, all they do is to create troubles. Troubles that they of course try to solve, but in reality…
The story takes place in Tokyo, Japan, which has been taken over by aliens (Amanto) since the late Edo Period. The samurai of Japan have all fallen since the Amanto placed a ban on carrying swords in public. The story focuses on an insane samurai with a natural perm, Sakata Gintoki, his (partial) apprentice who he framed in the first chapter, Shimura Shinpachi, and a teenage girl from the “Yato” clan, Kagura. All are “freelancers” who search for work in order to pay the monthly rent, which usually goes unpaid anyway.
