I've tried on multiple occasions to watch it and it's just so boring.  The plot is uninteresting, the characters are boring ripoffs of better characters in better series, and while I can tell that care was taken in the animation, the whole thing is just uninspired.  Is it like Hitman Reborn where it's terrible up to episode 20 or so, or is there just some weird thing I'm not seeing?  Mainly, I'm just trying to figure out if it's eventually going to be worth investing the time to eventually catch up to the almost 200 episodes the series has gotten to.

@Luffy: i like the first 20 episodes of Hitman Reborn 0_0 anyway i think Gintama is a hit or a miss. It does pick up in later chapters but The earliest volumes do give a general feeling for it.

gintama is humour, that is really all there to it, humour with few serious moment
while reborn is a case of genere shift, from comedy to meta-psychological action

@Luffy: I know your post is nearly half a decade ago from now.. but if somebody stumbles here and had same question like you.. As for me who like Gintama alot even if they have many inconsistencies in power etc etc, uninspired and alot of we don't know what the what now is what..

I like it because it's Random, you will never expect what will happen next and it's really funny.. And when that happy go lucky guy with a deep dark past needs to do save someone or help somebody, he becomes one of the most badass anime character.. one thing more is that i can relate to some of their jokes about everyday life, those that we do secrets that we do not tell anybody, they just blurt it out there and i'll be like, "WTF i'm like that too" feeling like you belong in their weird circle or something..

And lastly, i've never watched any other anime that teach you more values and wisdom than Gintama..
