Quote:
"Although we are but small branches, if even the branches give up, then the tree will really wilt. Therefore I will never give up, even if winter comes and all the leaves drop off, even if the wind blows till all the branches break off and I am the last one left, I will still stay on. I will stay with the tree till the end."
Kagura

IntroductionEdit

2 weeks had gone by after Gintoki made the announcement to disband Yorozuya and disappeared from the streets of Kabuki district. In the remains of the Yorozuya office after a space ship crashed into it, Kagura sat, rocking on Gintoki's chair and eating sukonbu all alone ...[1]

PlotEdit

Two weeks have passed since Gintoki has lost his memory. A member of the Shinsegumi, Yamazaki Sagaru, goes to work to a factory as a spy, looking for suspicious activity about creating a weapon of mass destruction. There he finds Gintoki and is shocked to see him working in such a place. He learns afterwards about his memory state. In the meantime, in the destroyed Yorozuya, Shinpachi finds Kagura desperately waiting for Gintoki to return. As soon as he joins her, Otose comes in and gives them an address of the factory, where a "silver haired" man started to work recently. Back to the factory, Yamazaki has a tough time to reach the job's standards creating dolls called Justaways. While eating with Gintoki during lunchtime, he finds Kondo, who was suffering from amnesia from eating Otae's 'omlette' in Episode 31, working at the same place. When Yamazaki tries to take Kondo back to their headquarters by force, one of the Justaways falls down and explodes. The factory was producing bombs and that accident caused a chain reaction of explosions. The factory's owner, Banzo the Viper, hunts them down and captures them. He wants to get rid of the corrupted Edo, as it has led him to lose his job and made his son become a yakuza member. He has thus created a huge cannon, Viper Z, with which he wants to eliminate Edo's rotted land. The Shinsengumi officers surround the factory and fire at the cannon hitting the three prisoners. Kondo regains his memories from the blast and manages to free the other two. Banzo fires the cannon almost killing Gintoki, Kondo and Yamazaki. When Banzo is about to fire again, Shinpachi and Kagura enter the yard and stand to protect Gin, followed by the Shinsengumi. Moved from their insistence, he starts to remember everything slowly. The cannon needs a little time to recharge before it fires again, so everyone rushes to the factory to destroy it. Suddenly, Gintoki grabs his wooden sword from Shinpachi and moves to destroy the cannon. A moment before the shot is fired, Gin lands the final blow destroying the deadly weapon. After the explosion, he walks away telling Shinpachi and Kagura that "We are going home". At the end of the episode Kondou lost his memory.

TriviaEdit

  • リストラ risutora is short for Restructuring, as in the restructuring of companies, resulting in layoffs.
  • Yamazaki mentioned the factory owner is a known Jouishishi supporter and weapons supplier, aka terrorist, Gintoki mistook this for ero-ist, aka sex-maniac.
  • Gintoki said that the head is very delicate, just like the Famicon - this is a reference to Nintendo's wildly popular Famicon video game consoles in the early 1980s to 1990s. Earlier consoles use floppy disk for the game titles, which made them notoriously fragile, and cartridges only became widespread in the market in the 1990s. For more details on the Famicon consoles, refer to Pink Godzilla review.
  • The name of the Justaway bomb manufacturing factory is マムシ工場 mamushi koujou aka Mamushi Industries - this name is purportedly derived from factory owner マムシの蛮蔵 mamushi no banzou aka Mamushi Banzou's name, notorious for his perseverence. Mamushi is a type poisonous snake commonly known as the Japanese pit viper. The company name was previously listed in Episode JUMP FESTA as one of the sponsors of this anime series.
  • Gintoki called Yamazaki 'Jimmy' - this is a reference to the phrase 地味 jimi which means 'plain'.
  • Future GPX Cyber Formula - Kondou as Asurada ?
