Gintama synopsis

The "Amanto", aliens from space that have invaded the earth and have completely taken over feudal Japan. As a result, a ban on the use of swords was put in place and samurai in Japan are treated with contempt as a result.

However, one man, Gintoki Sakata, still owns a samurai's heart, although one would not expect it from him due to his love of sweets and his work in the yorozuya (a business that makes everything). Accompanied by Shinpachi Shimura, a boy with glasses and a big heart, in his work; Kagura, a girl with an umbrella and a bottomless stomach; and Sadaharu, a giant dog, for his pet. Of course, these strange jobs are not always easy, sometimes you have problems with the police, with the rebels or with murderers, which leads to unfortunate but funny situations.
