On this episode of Life Lessons, we have special guest and other fellow Gintama Youtuber, Jess fromJess Reviews joining us to cover Chapter 75 of the manga, in which Hijikata just can’t get away from Gin! Oh the hilarity!! Followed by a Life Lessons segment discussing the chapter title (The More You’re Alike, The More You Fight) and just how similar Gin and Hijikata are to each other. Enjoy!
Join us next time as we cover Chapter 76 with Josh Dunham (Wave Motion Cannon) and Doctor!!
On this episode of Life Lessons, we are once again joined by Doctor (SSAA Podcast, Just a Gintama Podcast) to cover Chapter 74 of the manga (Adults Only, We Wouldn’t Want Anyone Immature in Here…), in which we learn what happened to Ane and Mone after the events of the previously discussed Dog God arc. Afterwards, we discuss the chapter title during the Life Lessons segment, followed by an Anime/Manga Comparison segment on Episode 46 of the anime, and even an email from a listener! Topics of discussion for this episode of the podcast include our opinions on the upcoming live action movie, the difficulties of podcasting, and which Dom Perignon is our drink of choice. Enjoy!
Join us next time for Episode 51 as we are joined by yet another Gintama Youtube personality known as JessReviews to cover Chapter 75!
On this episode if Life lessons, Colton is (finally) joined by Doctor of both the SSAA Podcast and Just a Gintama Podcast to discuss the reaction to Gintama being given an English dubbed DVD and Blu Ray release by Crunchyroll among other rumblings. Afterwards, we cover Chapters 71-73 0f the manga, otherwise known as the Dog God arc, in which a newly transformed Sadaharu makes things just little more “ruff” for the Odd Jobs trio (don’t worry I’ll see myself out). Afterwards, we discuss each individual chapter title and their meanings during the Life Lessons segment, followed by an Anime/Manga Comparison segment on Episode 45 of the anime. Topics of discussion include the first character popularity poll, the liberties taken with the anime this time around, and just how much Colton sucks at walking dogs. Enjoy!
Its finally here! On this episode of Life Lessons, we are joined by a very special guest, that guest being none other than long time Gintama translator himself, Bomber D. Rufi!! For years, BDR has been an integral part of the Gintama community, being one of the only two people who have been (and are still) translating the manga every week for years now. Today he joins Colton for his first episode of the podcast, as they cover Chapter 70 of the manga, in which Gin and Hasegawa gamble….we promise its a lot funnier than it sounds. Afterwards, we talk about the chapter title during the Life Lessons segment, followed by an Anime/Manga Comparison segment discussing Episode 49!
Discussion points include BDR’s experiences in translating Gintama, how the structure of a manga chapter may or may not affect the story being told, and why you should watch both Kaiji and Akagi.
Special thanks to BDR for coming on the show this episode! And join us next time as we go over Chapters 71-73 of the manga, aka the Dog God arc, with special guest Doctor of Just A Gintama Podcast and the SSAA Podcast. Enjoy!
On this episode of Life Lessons, Colton (Red Ninja, Special Attack: I Promise I Won’t Take More Than 2 Months to Edit The Next Podcast) is joined by both Josh Dunham (Yellow Ninja, Special Attack: 1000 Live Tweets For a Single Episode of Anime) of Senpai Coast to Coast and Wave Motion Cannon, and Niente de Nada (Maple Ninja, Special Attack: Let’s! Party!!), Japanese history enthusiast and Professional Canadian, to go over Chapters 67-69, aka the Go-Ninja Arc! In which Katsura pleads both the Odd Jobs and Sacchan to help him infiltrate the lair of an evil magistrate in order to rescue a captured Elizabeth!
After covering the arc, we decide to skip out on the Anime/Manga Comparison for the episode after accidentally talking about it during the Manga Recaps, so afterwards, we o over all three chapter titles in the Life Lessons segment and the show comes to an end, but don’t worry, this episode is pretty long! Discussion points include Josh’s critiques of the art and panel layout throughout the arc, ideas for new Gintama podcasts, and what we can do to make Gintama great again.
Apologies for how late the episode is, but look forward to Episode 48 with Colton and another VERY special and secret guest! Who could it be? Stay tuned to find out, but until then, enjoy the episode!
On this special episode of Life Lessons, we focus our usual Gintama talk more towards the anime side of things, as Colton is joined by Doctor (SSAA Podcast and Just a Gintama Podcast) to discuss with Josh Dunham’s thoughts on the Gintama anime thus far. Josh is the host of the anime podcast Senpai Coast to Coast and the founder of the Wave Motion Cannon blog, and had started watching Gintama shortly after meeting and becoming friends with Colton. It has been a year since that faithful day, and now it is time for Colton and Doctor to sit down with Josh behind their microphones and see what Josh thinks of the series thus far. What are his most memorable episodes? How does he feel about the cast of characters? Does he like Gintama enough to continue with it and record about it again sometime? Well, you’ll just have to listen. Enjoy!
On this episode of Life Lessons, its our third anniversary, and King Recon comes on the show once again to help cover Chapter 66 of the manga, in which the Odd Jobs get a new neighbor. Afterwards, Colton talks about Lesson 66 in the Life Lessons segment, followed by an Anime/Manga Comparison segment of Episode 47 of the anime.
The episode features an interview with Niente de Nada, the occasional ghost contributor to the podcast that Colton and Josh Dunham have mentioned and praised a ton in the past! She is also a very active member of the Gintama fan community who is seemingly the most knowledgeable of the real Japanese history that makes up the foundation of Gintama. The interview also features a few stories about a few different historical figures in which a majority of the cast are based on, so don’t miss it! Special thanks to Nada especially for coming on the show (links to her stuff and things are located in the show notes below).

In Part 2 of the episode, King Recon is still around to help Colton read the massive amount of emails, questions and comments that you, the listeners, have sent in for us to read on the podcast! It is quite literally our longest feedback segment ever recorded and released, including discussion of our favorite Gintama opening and ending themes, ideas on how to introduce new people to the series, and the multiple reasons why Gintama isn’t as popular overseas.
We want to thank everyone for all of the feedback they’ve sent into the show. It was a lot fun recording this and answering people’s emails.
Special thanks to everyone who has ever contributed or listened to the podcast over the past year, we couldn’t have done it without you! Enjoy!!
