About This Series

In the early 17th century, Japan adopted strict isolation policies and severed almost all ties with foreign countries. In 1853, the US fleet commanded by Admiral Perry forced the doors open, leading to a modernization of the nation's sociopolitical systems and the eventual fall of the Shogunate. The samurai regime ended its life with the imperial restoration in 1868. That's what history tells, but in Gintama, that's not what happens. Instead of the US fleet, the country is stormed by spaceships coming from four corners of the universe and soon we see it occupied by extraterrestrials. The Shogunate has become a puppet of alien occupation armies. All samurais have been disarmed and reduced to temp workers with no skills who just try to make ends meet. 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...

Character Descriptions:

Gintoki Sakata voiced by Tomohazu Sugita

He is the shiftless leader of Odd Jobs Gin, with a high blood sugar level due to his enormous sweet tooth. His true identity is the samurai once feared as the "White Demon" during the Joi war, but nowadays he only uses wooden sword. He drives a scooter.

Kagura voiced by Rie Kugimiya

The second person to join Gintoki's business, she is a young alien girl who belongs to the Yato Clan, one of the strongest and most bloodthirsty of the Amanto races. She came to Earth to earn big money, but instead gets caught into a Yakuza business where she worked as a bodyguard virtually for free. She encounters Gintoki when she finally decides to run away, and ends up joining Odd Job Gin until she saves enough money to go home. Despite her cute looks, her comments are often very harsh.

Shinpachi Shimura voiced by Daisuke Sakaguchi

He is from a samurai family that runs a dojo, only it is nearly closed down due to his father's death and the recent law to abandon all swords. Before meeting Gintoki, he worked at a restaurant, but he couldn't even manage a cash register. After Gintoki saved his sister from a loan shark, he decides to work for Odd Job Gin, in order to learn Gintoki's samurai spirit, but he soon regrets his decision. He is also the leader of Otsu's official fan club, an idol singer gaining much popularity recently.

Ayame Sarutobi voiced by Yu Kobayashi

She is a former elite kunoichi from the Oniwabanshuu, who now lives as an assassin targeting corrupt merchants et cetera. As a clumsy kunoichi, she often loses her glasses, which leaves her almost blind. Her infatuation with Gintoki is responded by his apparent annoyance, but this response seems to further inflame her masochistic nature. She often incorporates her favorite food natto and sado-masochism into her fighting.

Elizabeth voiced by Shinji Takamatsu

A mysterious extraterrestrial creature left to Katsura by his former comrade, Tatsuma Sakamoto. Although she lacks expressions and is hard to tell what she is thinking, she seems to care about Katsura, as she often appears to help Katsura at the times of his crisis. She uses signboards to communicate, as well as an occasional means of attack. Sometimes human arms and hairy legs are seen inside her "outfit".

Isao Kondo voiced by Susumu Chiba

He is the commander of the Shinsengumi. His nickname is "Gorilla". He is a good-natured and honorable person, and although he is not popular with women at all, the members of the Shinsengumi are fiercely loyal to him. Due to his recklessly straight forward nature, his love and actions toward Tae are nothing but those of a stalker.

Kotaro Katsura voiced by Akira Ishida

Gintoki's former comrade during the Joi war, he is a wanted man due to his involvement in terrorist activities against the Bakufu. Naturally he often runs away from Bakufu and the Shinsengumi, and seen in many forms of disguises. His nickname is "Zura", which means a toupee. He sometimes works odd jobs to raise money for his terrorist activities.

Otose voiced by Wakako Matsumoto

The owner of "Snack Otose" and also Gintoki's landlady, who is constantly arguing with Gintoki about his rent. However, she is a very generous person, as she forgave Catherine from stealing her money. Although she has aged quite a bit, she once was very pretty and was Kabuki district's idol.

Prince Hata voiced by Kouichi Sakaguchi

He is known as the stupid prince who collects monsters and aliens as his pets. They cause havoc in Edo every time Prince Hata brings them along, but he never seems to learn from his mistakes. His antenna-like object stuck on his head is his charm point, but it often gets cut off.

Sadaharu voiced by Mikako Takahashi

An abandoned Inugami who is collected by Kagura. With his massive strength and size, he often puts his masters in danger. His real strength is awakened by consuming strawberry and milk.

Toshiro Hijikata voiced by Kazuya Nakai

He is the vice commander of the Shinsengumi. He has been known to smother anything he eats under a mountain of mayonnaise. Although he is being feared as the "demonic vice commander" for his blunt exterior and belligerent attitude, he has a tendency to cry after watching movies that are not particularly emotional.
