Yorozuya Gintoki

After having a torrid 4 days (Saturday to Tuesday, with 2 days MC) of gastric flu, I finally made it back to office today and boy was my email box bursting. So after slogging through what must have been enough email crap to fill the most optimistic of holes, I decided to reward myself today after work.

A quick trip to one of my haunts yielded this homely little package.

Yes, it’s $21. (reduced from $24 I might add – must be the Great Singapore Sale)

Ripping it open yields more mystery.

Well, to dispense with the dramatics, they’re Gintama toys. Gintama is one of my all time favourite animes, and sadly, not enough of my friends watch it with me. (Thanks Kai and iBon for being my ONLY SUPPORTERS! You guys ROCK! 8) ) Essentially, the story is of Sakata Gintoki, a Yorozyua, which is a jack of all trades. Someone willing to do any task for a price. While rather mercernary sounding, what ensues is utter hilarity and there is really no way to describe it other than to watch it for yourself. Trust me, I’ve tried explaining it to many people and all I get is a quizzical look and the obligatory “twirling of the index finger around the temple” to tell me I’m an absolute nutter.

Anyways, if anyone changes their mind and wants to check Gintama out, drop me a message. ;)

In the meantime, I spent the last 20 minutes posing my new toys around my desk.

  1. AHHHHHHH!! I LOVE GINTAMA!
    Those are pretty awesome figure <33
    yeah, I must agree it is not easy to find friend who watch it together, I don’t have any friend watch it, which is very lonely sometime T_T

  2. Hi karrupin! It’s great to find another fellow Gintama fan! 🙂 Welcome to my blog and hope to see you dropping by often!

    I’m patiently waiting for the subbed episodes to be released. At the time of this reply, it’s only at episode 70… -_-”’

  3. Hello buggy 😀 I lost your website address and finally found it again *sigh of relieved~*
    Thanks goodness 🙂

    Oh.. me too! But sadly crunchyroll now being dumb. It’s so hard to find a better streaming site to watch Gintama 😦 Even if I registered as a premium member, it’s still says ‘this series is not available at your country’ OTL

    hey, you didn’t post much nowadays,no?
