    Day 1- How did you discover and get into Gintama?

    My brother was telling me about it and had all the episodes on an external hard drive, so I copied them over to my computer and started watching. Initially I was watching an episode or two a day... thinking it was pretty good. Once I got to around episode 43, I knew this series was something truly special and I was hooked.

    OOOOOHHH YEEEAAA! LET'S DO THIS!

    Day 1- How did you discover and get into Gintama?
    I remember browsing MAL for comedies (since I watched OP that was hilarious at that time) and Gintama showed up. It had 201 eps and I was a little hesitant but after the first one I just went on a role and very soon caught up ^^

    I'm more than glad someone finally made this challenge for Gintama. :yaaa:

    Day 1 - How did you discover and get into Gintama?
    Around one year and some months ago, I became a big fan of a certain voice actor. I wanted to try other series with him as a fixed part of the cast, one of them happened to be Gintama (I also remember that I somehow knew the series title before, but not why). That's how I came in touch with Gintama, and I don't want to miss it anymore! :> Later I noticed the manga is still going on, so I also started to read.

    Day 1 - just decided to watch it for the hell of it and got hooked. I knew about it from 9gag and facebook posts, but never really looked into it until I got bored and decided to start on a new anime.

    It's a popular manga/anime so almost every day had to run into some post on Facebook about it, which mostly shows the funny side of Gintama. Posts like Gin being luffy, Showing Gintama storyline going through other series's storyline while shown in comparison. These kinds of posts got me curious so I searched about it on MAL and than after joining OJ got to know about it more, so at that time I added it into my to watch list but never got into watching it. Final push was given by my homies on skype chat ;) I'm just 13 episodes in right now, and soon i'll be getting time to binge watch it.

    Day 1- How did you discover and get into Gintama?

    One of my internet friends recommend me to it. The second season just started airing back then so I watched that one. First episode in and never have I laughed so hard when watching an anime :rofl:

    That's the magic of Gintama, you don't discover Gintama - Gintama discovers you.

    One day you're just sitting there, being a couch potato, casually flicking mucus from your nose, drinking too much strawberry milk... just staring blankly into the computer. Your favourite mangas are on a break, the Ice Cream tubs are empty... just when you needed them the most! It happened! Shounen Jump has finally abandoned you... *sniff* .... you start to lose hope in humanity... in your existence, you hit that point of no return crisis point... But then.! Just as you gave up hope, a magical portal seems to open up on your computer. Lush trees, butterflies, Gorillas... you can't believe what you're seeing! Such a magical world...as you enter deeper you see it all. Sadism, shameless parodies, unapologetic fart humour - is this heaven? You wipe your tears away, ashamed. Shounen Jump... it always delivers! You never forget this lesson. Even in the darkest of times, Gintama teaches you to never give up hope :')

    I don't remember xD

    I'm gonna try this challenge even though I'm still catching up with the story
    I'd known its existence for a long time, but OJ (and all its Gintama avy members) made me want to get into G(K)intama

    Shonen Jump~ I own some of the issues from 2008-2009, and I read Gintama there, and it turned out really good, so I read them from the beginning on internet ;)

    Day 2- Who is your favorite character?

    This might be hard to believe, but my favorite character isn't actually Zura.

    It's Katsura.
