Gintama. If the game was like this, wouldn't it be interesting? Or something like that.It's like Seaman. It's a game where communication is measured by talking with a Madao, and you support him until his unemployed self can find a job.The Madao will basically ignore you even if you talk from your side. That's because he's too busy with what he wants to do.Occasionally, there will be times when he's depressed. You might feel like cheering him up, but you shouldn't talk.

You must not say "Do your best!" The reason for that is because he's already giving it his all. Sometimes he'll play with a rope hanging from the ceiling. When that happens, rapidly press the B button to cut the rope. Occasionally, there will be times when he'll silently stare at the string hanging from the light, saying "Move... move!" When that happens, rapidly press the B button here, too. Sometimes a strange woman will come to his house. When that happens, shout "Change!" with a loud voice. ...In the end, "Change!" is all you can say.

It looks like the anime will drag on for a third year. Gintoki predicts that lots of people will react to the anime's end and then they'll make a comeback in the golden time slots. Shinpachi thinks that it's an absurd dream. Good DVD sales don't matter because no money is made, and Gintoki blames Aniplex who tricks people into buying the DVDs. He also explains various plans to drag the anime until the third year since anime tends to catch up to manga. Each method doesn't seem to work for Gintama, so what's the one plan that no other has thought of...?

Ginpachi-sensei passes the baton to the show that airs after Gintama like usual. He eventually realizes that the following show already ended so he gets a little embarrassed. Ginpachi-sensei tries again with another show, but the main issue was the leftover time in the current Gintama episode. All the extras lately were added so the anime wouldn't catch up to the manga. Gin-san thinks up a new extra but wanted to save it for next week when the new ending song began. Tamo-san's show starts up again. Shinpachi said that the whole purpose of that show was to re-introduce characters that hadn't shown up in a long time, which it failed to do.

Gin-san brings up the "Soul Reaper Encyclopedia Silver" and talks about the apple-eating Soul Reaper that wanted to take Taka-chin's soul... Shinpachi catches him on his plagerism. They try once again and this time they bring out the Illustration Corner. The first one is from a four-year old drawing their favorite scene. Upon seeing it, Shinpachi thinks it's incredibly suspicious. But before it could go on, Kagura notes that they're finally out of time.
