Or "Wait we have a plot?"

Japanese Anime Discussion
What arcs work the best, does Gintama do serious better, or should it stick to comedy? How long until they go on another “vacation?”
Super Awesome Gorilla Countdown
The creator has a running gag with gorillas. He even depicts himself as one when he decides to make a shameless self insertion. Needless to say there are several “gorilla” characters in the show. We're going to count them down. #1 being the biggest gorilla of all time.
An overview of the console games Gintama has spawned, or has been featured in, and also why we probably will never see any of these games sold in the West.
EXTREME JANKEN MATCH
Extreme Janken is essentially rock paper scissors, only after you throw your hand, the winner tries to hit the loser on the head with a hammer (a little squeak toy one I got at party city, so safety wouldn't be an issue) while the loser quickly puts a helmet on their head. If the hammer hits the helmet, they go again, if they don't, they lose and the game is over. I have a few prizes I will award to the winner. Due to time constraints we could probably only do one game, but I guess if the first game goes by fast we could do another round.
YOROZUYA Q & A
Ask the characters anything! Well anything within a PG-13 related window.
