Gintama is an anime and manga series that is a mixture of science fiction, fantasy, drama, and comedy. The Gintama anime is based on the manga series written and illustrated by Hideaki Sorachi that began in 2003. The anime was directed by Chizuru Miyawaki and originally aired on TV Tokyo.
The setting in Gintama is an alternate-history Edo Japan where space aliens invaded 20 years earlier and quickly conquered the country. The Shogun signs a contract with the space aliens, banning samurai from carrying swords in the country and turning the shogunate into a puppet government for the aliens.
The plot in Gintama is centered on the life of freelance samurai Gintoki Sakata, who works odd jobs with his friends Shinpachi Shimura and Kagura to survive and make ends meet. The silver-haired samurai, Gintoki, has an eccentric personality and gave up on trying to fight the aliens when he realized the futility in doing so.
With over 55 million copies in print, the Gintama manga is one of the best-selling manga series of all time. The anime series has been praised for its comedy and character development and has spawned two successful movies that earned a total Japanese box office gross of ¥2.77 billion ($31 million).
And so, for today's 245th Temptation Thursdays poll, we shall focus on Gintoki Sakata, the main protagonist of Gintama.
