haven’t watch this movie either since my computer is out-of-date but since there was internet…I was able to see spoilers (I’m the kind of person who’s excited when I see spoilers). Anyway back to the topic, for those who already watched the movie… I just want to share my realization
How come Otae was the only one who got the virus? I mean come on! Anyone from Gin’s circle can be infected by it but why she’s the only one? There was one post on Tumblr that in the movie, Kagura&Shinpachi had an item in tribute to Gin (since he’s dead at that timeline) a sword for Shin-chan and the outfit pattern for China then the blogger thought Gin has White hair then Otae has White hair…
Then some of not GinTae fans said “oh its just a family thing…she’s going to die soon thats why Gin acting like that because he’s guilty..” yes we understand that…Otae is a part of his family and you will really feel guilty if you’re the source of the virus…
My only question is why Sorachi picked Otae to be the victim? If we look closely, Gin mostly spends his time more to Shinpachi and Kagura so they most likely to get the virus but since the’re kids,it would be more likely for Otose to be the victim. She smokes,she’s old and lives just downstairs from him. And if Sorachi think about the family thing, it should be Otose. Imagine all the feels you will.get if you see Gin so guilty on “killing” Otose…the one who gave him shelter and care like a mother. But it’s Otae…then I love the scene where she said that before she die, she wants to see him again so that she can say good bye to.him and to look those 3 to smile again. And don’t forget their fighting scene back to back. I love how Gin said “I also brought the craziest chick I know back to life” So he thinks of her as a chick even though she’s crazy (but sometimes being crazy and complicated makes a man fall). Kyaah! And I love the most when Enmi (who’s the “evil” Gin) said “Devouring both of our beloved and hated” then Otae popped out on screen…Kyaahh! I smell something fishy from Sorachi-sensei hahaha! This is one of the reason that I feel that Gin and Otae are still the one for each other even though Sorachi made Chapter494-496 (that gave me a mini heart attack…I’ m still young )
Belated Happy Birthday @gceltorres ! You’re one of my awesome friends in HRM (and also one of my best friends) and you deserve the best of everything. ‘Sensya na kung ito lang gift ko sayo,late pa pero sana ma-appreciate mo! #20teen ka na #perobabyfaceparin
here are already parallels between Gintama and Rourouni Kenshin (Samurai X). Both are anime about a samurai who has a haunting past and now lives to protect everyone he dears most.
I didn’t able to watch Samurai X but I read some info about them *coughs* Wikipedia *coughs* and I saw parallels between Samurai X’s couple: Kamiya Kaoru & Himura Kenshin and Gintama’s very own Shimura Tae&Sakata Gintoki.
1.Gintoki&Kenshin are both samurais with a haunting past while Tae & Kaoru owned a dojo.
2.Both story began when Kenshin saved Kaoru from people;Gin first met Shinpachi but the 2nd episode evolved when Gin saved Otae from loan sharks who threaten Tae about the dojo.
3.Both Kaoru & Tae have similar outfit&hairstyle:kimono&ponytail.
4.Kaoru to Kenshin: I’m lending you my favorite ribbon, so you can return it to me later.
Tae to Gin: This is my favorite umbrella, please return it to me later.
5.(This was the one who sparked my interest the most!) In Rourouni Kenshin OVA: Reflection, Kenshin was struggling from a disease. Before he left, Kaoru (I don’t know if they’re already married here) insist that they should have sexual intercourse so that he can transfer the disease to her and so that she can be able to share the pain with him (although I don’t know if she did get the virus too).
In Gintama Movie 2, Gin left Kabuki like 5 yrs ago while the virus from him infected almost everyone. If it’s airborne, everyone in the cast can be infected but in the movie, the only person who got infected within Gin’s circle was Otae. We do not know how did she got the virus but there this one scene where Tojou said about the infection (although its kind of a joke).
6.Still on the OVA, the ending scene was Kenshin died in the arms of Kaoru under the trees of cherry blossoms.
In Gintama, although the scene is similar to Suzuran and Grampy, the scene of cherry blossoms were also very much acquainted to GinTae. Its the episode 1 where Gin&Tae (w/ Kagura&Shinpachi and Shinsenggumi as well & Zura) had a picnic under cherry blossom trees.
That’s the parallel events I saw (in my opinion). If you’re not familiar with Samurai X,go and research about them,you’ll find many similarities between the two. If you know other similarities between GinTae and Samurai X (or any other animes), feel free to say your thoughts! Thanks to everyone who spend their time to read this post! Arigatou Gozaimas
