Lesson 559 is the 559th chapter of the Gintama series.


The imprisoned Nobu Nobu refused to eat, despite Sakamoto's insistence. The Shogun remarked that the Tendoushuu would not let the group get away with the kidnapping, Sakamoto pointed out that since Nobu Nobu really had no value for both groups, he would be get rid with this side as well. While the group was approaching Rakuyou, Kagura had already landed with the Kiheitai renmants. She visited her mother's grave, recalled her promise to return with her family and left a bouquet there, learning that her father had arrived at the planet too.

At Abuto's place, some men of the 7th Division surrounded Umibouzu but was told to stand down by Abuto. He remarked the similarity between Umibouzu and Kamui in focusing on their chosen prey. He then decided to accommodate Umibouzu as they all waited for Kamui's return.

Meanwhile, Gintoki, Shinpachi, Mutsu, Sakamoto, and Katsura were being led by Bansai to the Kiheitai's hideout. However, as Bansai pointed to the places, it exploded instantly, making Shinpachi believed that the Harusame had reached there. Two fleeing Kiheitai members found Bansai, claiming that Umibouzu had found them. The group followed the two men, but they quickly killed as soon as they apologised Bansai, implying of Takasugi's death. The group was forced to hide, as Gintoki found out that the two men were traitors leading them to the Harusame, who had, indeed, taken control of the planet before their arrival.
