Well, the publisher Shueishawho published the full manga series of Hideaki Sorachi, decided to count each instance of the sentence by just two letters in the 77 volumes of the series. The publisher released a video showing each of the cases, and the number easily exceeded 1000 times.

Indeed on the Twitter account of the Weekly shonen jump Several photos of his entire research process have been posted, showing a stack of compilation volumes of the manga with markers on each of them. The amount is such that you can tell they ran out of yellow markings and they used pink markings.

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 belly; 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.
