    So what did everyone else think of this arc?

    I personally thought it was great to see some development on Hijikata and Sougo's past. I always wondered why Sougo always acted like that toward Hijikata and now it makes some sense. It also gave a bit of depth to Hijikata's character (and the whole Sougo/Hijikata/Kondo trio in general).

    It was definitely an intense arc.

    And goddamn this spicy stuff. ;_;

    Epic arc is epic. It had lol stuff (like Gin-san with ChopperĀ“s hat) but in general it was a good serious arc with romance and drama.

    Hijikata killed all the potential romance, that bastard :yell

    I had never even sniffled when watching a sad anime, but this arc made me tear up...Seeing Sougo so vulnerable was just heart-wrenching :arg

    Indeed.
    Best arc in Gintama by miles (though that's not saying much). Plus many of its scenes were right up there with bulletwound-riddled Kagura struggling into the bad guy's ship in the living sword arc (forgot the name) and seeing Shin's sister bitch cry in her arc.

    edit: Second to the Itou arc :awesome

    I just realized that both Shinpachi and Kagura didn't appear in this 2 episode arc at all.

    Sorry about necropsting...but this arc made me cry. Best Arc for Gintama Ever. Even better than Benzakura arc.
