    Episode 317

    Always worth checking in to see if anyone on the forum is watching this yet. This looks to be the last one, and holy shit is it already more plot-heavy than ever!

    Of course they were going to start off with some commentary on being moved to the late-night slot, and they managed to get a good bit of comedy in before the real heavy stuff, skillfully mixing it in with a recap from Katsura for those who may just be joining us. It makes sense that this would be the one time they'd do that, both because the previous season ended on two very important and related arcs and this one begins right where it left off, continuing on with the next very important arc that is equally related to those two and because of the aforementioned time slot move. Obviously it should go without saying that this is the fifth season and the 317th episode, though, so with all of the previous content readily available in the same place, there is no reason that anyone in the regions with access to it should be starting here without having seen everything that leads up to it.

    In fact, that's truer now than ever, because the only reason this all has so much impact is because it builds upon everything that came before, as any good final stretch should. It's why an episode that, once it gets past that wonderful comedy, is mostly exposition can already be as amazing as we expect any new season of Gintama to be. Now to see how this coincides with the end of the manga, if they manage to time them right, and when it will get to that point. It's an extremely exciting time, that's for sure.
