Lesson 522 is the 522nd chapter of the Gintama series.
As Hitotsubashi Nobu Nobu was named as the next Shogun, Shige Shige was against the order, insisting that he was the Shogun and apologising Hattori for letting him risk his life. Nobu Nobu manically ordered the Naraku members to kill Shige Shige's allies but halted after seeing something.
Meanwhile, Gintoki continued to fight against Oboro, saying that he would be the only one to protect and kill Takasugi, who suddenly stood up and stabbed the latter in the left eye with a shakujo. Kagura and Kamui intervened the fight and attempted to bring their leaders out of there alive.

- Tokugawa Shige Shige: Sorry, Zenzou. You risked your life to protect me, and even without me being Shogun, you still strove to protect me simply as your friend, Tokugawa Shige Shige. That is why I must continue to be Shogun. So that the lives lost for me and for the country do not go to waste, I cannot run from my battle, the position of Shogun. I am Shogun Tokugawa Shige Shige, the one that protects the country... This country where my friends live.
- Sakata Gintoki: (Referring to Takasugi Shinsuke) But the one who understand how he feels better than anyone else in this world is me. What we hated most in this world is the same. So you guys aren't qualified to cut him down. The one that'll both cut down and protect this guy is me. That's the Samurai I decided on.
- Sakata Gintoki and Takasugi Shinsuke: (To Oboro) Don't you dare talk about Shouyou.
- Takasugi Shinsuke: (To Oboro, referring to Sakata Gintoki) Make sure you burn that into your memory as well. The last face that eye saw. Me or him? Even if one drops dead here, one will definitely sends you to Hell.
