    "I honestly love Gintama so much, the first few times I watched it way back, I couldn't understand what the hype was. It kinda sucked not being left out, but it really was worth it to wait until I could understand it better because Gintama is about the realest Japanese anime I've watched. It makes me laugh until I almost can't breath lmao"


Did you know that Hideaki Sorachi's favorite character in Gintama is Hasegawa? Hideaki gave this character the most care in both the manga and anime? Hideaki Sorachi is the manga artist and author behind the Gintama series. Gintama as a manga was first conceived in December 2003. Later on, the full anime series debuted on April 2006. 13 years after the release of the manga, Gintama sold 50 million copies in 2016. The original title of the Gintama was Yorozuya Gin-chan. But the editors were not pleased so Hideaki decided to go with Gintama instead. Gintama is actually a pun taken from the Japanese word Kintama. Gintama is mainly a comedy anime with loads of episodes and notable characters.

Gintama is just one of the numerous comedy anime to watch. A notable amount of famous anime also includes comedy in their sub-genres. Comedy anime can cross genres such as fantasy, romance or school comedy anime. Regardless, comedy anime guarantees to make its viewers laugh out loud. The best comedy anime is one with the funniest scenes and characters. Loads of famous anime series have a hint of comedy in them. But there are anime shows that cater specifically to people who want to tickle their funny bones! Picking which hilarious anime is the best depends heavily on your preferences. At the end of the day, it’s all just for gags and laughs!
