Gintama Tear Jerker
Gintama turned out to be awesome entertainment. The animated series easily occupies the top tier of genuinely humorous things to watch. There are few contenders with the sheer cleverness to challenge the show when it comes to being funny: Zetsubou Sensei and Nichijou do make a fine showing. However, with the Kintaro arc, Gintama proved that the production staff and actors can manipulate the entire range of human emotions. It's no wonder the show is still going strong after five seasons. If only Bleach could always feel so fresh...
Note: The still is not from the Kintaro arc, it's from the Yoshiwara is Burning arc, which was one of the few disappointments of the series (you heard it here).
