While I love pretty much every character in the series, I do have some favourites: Sakata Gintoki: Gin-san! -- 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 () 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. -- 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.
