How was Tama able to be both the Guntank and the Time Pirate?
T.T the anime that saved anime
Am I the only one who thought the movie pacing was far too slow and the space between jokes was far too long?
I agree, but Gintama gets like that sometimes and I think it was a fitting movie.
When the sentimental OST track starts playing I just know some bullshit is about to happen.
More jokes would have helped a whole lot I agree.
Am I the one who didn't like the ending at all? For a series that makes fun of cliches, it sure likes using a lot of them.
I cannot believe there was not a single mosaic in the entire movie. Hell they even had an incredibly obvious place to put it, over Gintoki's face.
It aint canon
It was written by Sorachi that's canon enough.
It didn't have enough reaction faces.
Not enough Shinsengumi hijinx.
Like how Gintoki was both the bandaged guy and standard Gintoki at the same time. Guntank Tama was present Tama, Camera Tama was time traveling Tama. Of course, there likely was a smaller time difference there.
This movie had some good jokes but overall it was a drag.
The final scene with all characters fooling around normally with a new awesome version of the Gintama anime theme playing was a good way to end it.
I didn't notice it. The jokes seemed to flow in the usual speed.
Well, unless you mean the serious parts breaking up the comedy scenes, but that's pretty standard for Gintama's "serious" arcs. I don't think they'd ever attempt a full on comedy movie anyway.
It's not even just about serious parts breaking up comedy scenes, even serious and long TV arcs like Benizakura and Ryugujo and Yoshiwara Burning had better comedic and dramatic timing. There were more jokes and when there weren't jokes there was actual stuff going on to hold your attention instead of empty space and empty dialogue.
At least that's how I felt.
They seemed to attempt a melancholic tone for the serious moments in the future, which does need slower scenes.
I can't say I agree about the comedic scenes though. On the other hand, looking at the staff list, although Sorachi created the characters and story for the movie, he didn't actually write the script itself, it was written by Yamatoya Akatsuki. He has been one of the Gintama's writers for a long time, but only ever wrote adaptations, never any original stories. Besides one exception... he did co-wrote the last episode of the second anime, which also had slow scenes (On the other hand, he was also the main writer for Ixion Saga DT, which didn't really follow that pattern).
