    While I love pretty much every character in the series, I do have some favourites:

    Sakata Gintoki:
    Gin-san! :yell
    -- Win. Win. Win.
    -- Strawberry milk.
    -- Gintoki-don.
    -- Rivalry with Hijikata.
    -- Badass Shiroyasha.
    -- Win.
    -- Awesome.
    -- Did I say win?

    Okita Sougo:
    Our beloved 1st Division captain. Torture specialist (:hehee) and the best swordsman in Shinsengumi.
    -- Pure win.
    -- Pokerface and deadpan humour ftw~!
    -- His obsession with killing/torturing Hijikata just kills me everytime.
    -- Rivalry with Kagura.
    -- Eyemask. Do want.

    Katsura Kotaro:
    Our very own patriot activist.
    -- Win.
    -- "Zura janai! Katsura da!"
    -- Katsu-rap. :iria
    -- Fruits Punch Samurai G, Captain Katsura, Zurako, other aliases...
    -- His obliviousness to his own stupidity is just hilarious.
    -- Elizabeth protectiveness is cute.
    -- He also has a serious side that's pretty badass.
    -- Conflict with Shinsengumi always delivers.

    Elizabeth:
    Amanto/duck/penguin/middle-aged man?
    -- Win. Is all.

    Honourable mention: the rest of the cast, esp. Hijikata, Kondo and Shinpachi. Win.

    Okita Sougo and Hijikata are my favorites. They are the best comedic duo in anime/manga:laugh

    I also love Gintoki's words of wisdom.

    Every charcter is so unique...I dont think there are any stereotypes, and if there are; they are there for fun!

    My favourites are Gin and Kagura. Her love for Sadaharu is just so cute!

    Gintama is one of the rare manga/anime where I honestly like practically every character. They're all so unique and likable, I love that the female characters kick ass (too rare!)

    1) Hijikata
    --Made of win and awesomeness. It's in the mayo, and how he reacts to everything, and always falls for Katsura's disguises, and competes with Gintoki, and when he acts all badass <333 Even the smoking is hot, and I hate smoking...

    2) Gintoki
    --Simply put, the best shounen hero I've ever come across, pure win <3

    3) Okita
    --Love his snarkiness and rivalry with Kagura and how he keeps affectionately trying to do away with Hijikata, lol

    4) Yamazaki
    -- Badminton, disguises, and secret spy stuff. Nuff said, he pwns XD

    My favorite has to Sakata Gintoki. I don't think that there has been any character in any other series that has had me laughing out loud as many times as Gin has. Exceedingly atypical in personality when compared to other 'heroes', I love all of his eccentricities and hobbies without exception (i.e. Jump obsession, strawberry milk/sweets, the weather girl, pachinko, etc.). And, I think that these various idiosyncrasies make him into a strangely realistic character, even more so than the other wonderful personalities populating our favorite version of Edo.

    Also, besides his comedy, I adore Gintoki for the serious turns that he can take. The back and forth between comedy and drama is something that I feel his character often skillfully orchestrates, and it's one of my favorite aspects of the series. Even if I was giggling to myself moments before, the second that Gintoki decides to put forth one of his speeches, I'm drawn into the drama.

    Other aspects of his character that shoot him up in my estimation include:
    -being so well voiced by one of my favorite seiyuu, Tomokazu Sugita.
    -his carefree and lazy design/style
    -the great action moments he spearheads/his abilities in battle
    -his total lack of motivation and honesty borne of apathy XD
    -Ginpachi-sensei!

    Although, I have to add that all of the characters are amazing and earn a special place in my affections. I truly can't think of a single one of them that I dislike. And, in particular, some honorable mentions go to:

    -Shinpachi
    -Shinsuke Takasugi
    -Kondo
    -Hijikata/Okita
    -Otose

    It's funny how many people like Okita Sougo, I am not a big fan, mainly because I don't like his seiyuu all that much. He's okay I guess.

    I think my favorites as of now has to be Gintoki and Hijikata. Shinpachi is actually fun to watch for his outrages reactions to Gin's actions.

    Sogo Okita...Is the funniest character.

    In episode 14, it was also incredibly awesome how fast he was to draw his sword after his captain took a bullet for the frog. Oh man, that was made of win.
