Welcome to the fourth Gintama(actually-it's the fifth!) report. It's been a long break since the last report but I was a bit busy with exams and this arc was 5 episodes long so this required lots of time. Further delayed because I lost the will to do this due to editing mistakes twice (but let's forget that for now).
I'm grateful to my team, especially AnnaBanana and Taka for still supporting me and helping me with the Gintama wiki. They worked on the wiki images when I was not able to due to lack of time. Thank you team!
This report covers Episodes 232-236 of the Gintama Anime, namely the Renho Invasion Arc. Now without any futher ado, let's start!
Elizabeth has ran away from home and Katsura takes the aid of the Yoruzuya to search for him. Katsura doesn't remember the circumstances but try to recollects it by looking for clues on Elizabeths signs. During one of his flashbacks, recollects everything. A mysterious woman however appears and tells that that Katsura was fooled all along-Elizabeth was the commander of a race of aliens, the Renho who were out to invade earth. Elizabeth was just deceiving Katsura and the others all along.
She introduces herself as Fumiko and tells them that the main reason Elizabeth ran away was to go back to Renho Leader & Supreme Commander, Dark Vader and prepare for the invasion of the earth. She tells them they don't stop the Renho now, the earth and it's people will be doomed forever. The Yoruzuya trio and Katsura are the only things standing between earth and it's imminent destruction.
Will Gintoki and the others manage to stop the invasion of the earth from the dreaded Dark Vader? Will Katsura have to face his dear friend Elizabeth and fight him? Will we be treated to some mecha action?
So what are you waiting for, go and watch the Renho Invasion Arc of Gintama!
Warning: POSSIBLE SPOILERS!
This episode marks the last appearance of Elizabeth and...the ending will make you laugh so hard you can almost share the same feeling as Gin and Shin aare feeling in this image:
My personal opinion on the various episodes (on a scale of 1 to 5):
Thank you for taking your time to read this report. I hope you found it interesting and a bit knowledgeable (because Crunchyroll never explains any of the references) and you go and watch the episodes after reading it. I know I was a bit late with this report and there are more episodes waiting to be reported so you'll be seeing some more reports this week from me. Hopefully. :)
I'd also like to thank my team, W.I.K.I. Nation for bearing with my late reports :) and working on the Gintama pages while I was away. I'll try not to be slow next time.

Welcome to the second weekly Gintama article! I'm MohsinMan99 (sounds a bit funny, doesn't it?) and I'll be most likely doing the weekly Gintama articles from now on. The first weekly report, covering Episodes 228 & 229 was brought to you by fellow teammate, Takashichea, who finally convinced me to get up and do something for the wiki and especially Gintama, a series of which I recently became a fan of and for which I've always wanted to contribute to. Thank you, Taka.
Since this is my first report, expect to find some faults here but I shall try my hardest to keep errors out of this. If anybody is willing to help me with these reports or something related to the Gintama pages, feel free to drop by a PM.
Kagura's friends all own a cellphone and they message each other daily. Kagura starts feeling left out and decides to ask Gintoki to buy her one. However, Gintoki refuses saying they can't afford one. In an eccentric twist, Sadaharu does an act of nature in which Shinpachi finds three cellphones, which, he assumes Sadaharu swallowed due to his habit of eating anything smaller than him. The phones don't work at first so Gintoki gets it repaired by Gengai who only fixes the messaging function of the phone and gives one phone to each of them. After getting a phone, Kagura suddenly begins acting weird, avoiding them and only conversing with them through texting and going so far as to sending them pointless updates every five minutes. On being confronted, Kagura runs away from home making Gintoki and Shinpachi to start searching for her. Morever, they get a message from the man who owns their phones that he is looking for them and will kill them for taking his cellphones.
Will Gintoki and Shinpachi find Kagura before the man finds her or will they themselves become a target of the man?

Death Cancer had a nice entry and had potential to be a really interesting character but sadly didn't live upto my expectations.
Cancer and his past
The manga which Gintoki is reading in Shonen Jump is Naruto Shippuden.
Thank you for reading this. It's my first time writing a report here and formatting this was a real pain as well so go easy on me. It seems HTML code isn't accepted for blogs so after posting this, some things looked out of order but I'm working on it. I'll take it easy on the "Thanks" section for now and fill it with the usual stuff. Taka influenced me to write this so here it is. I may not do one for the next week depending on how things go but I'll try my hardest!

Gintama fan and an anime obsessed guy
Logically, a true omnipotent would be able to do anything since he has the "power". In a similar vein, a true omniscient should also be able to do everything since he has the "knowledge". That is, True Omniscient=True Omnipotent and vice versa.
Omnipotent= All powerful/Infinite Power (this is the actual definition and other synonymous definitions like "able to do everything" are implications of this)
Omniscience= All Knowing/ Infinite Knowledge, wisdom, experience
My point here is: Why not categorize Omniscience as we have done for Omnipotence? If Omnipotence can be classified as True/Nigh/Fake, why not the same for Omniscience? After all, they are two sides of the same coin in philosophy. True Omnipotence=True Omniscience.
To give a simple example, a true omniscience should know what value to use for "x" to make this algebraic equation true: 5x = 6x. Even though this is impossible, one could make the argument that "if the character doesn't know what value to use for x to make the equation true, then the character doesn't truly know everything, and is therefore not omniscience".
