Air Date: April 18, 2011
Genre: Comedy, Craziness, Science Fiction, Action
My Rating: **** (4:5 stars)
Its time to write the New Years cards and Yorozuya is having fun while he finds out what everyone did over the holiday. Gintoki on the other hand bitches and moans about writing New Years and points out that the cards are really just total BS from their ‘friends’ that want to shove in your face that they have gotten married or had a baby. He doesn’t understand why the cards need to be fluffy like ‘we have brought in a new bundle of happiness to our lives’. Gintoki thinks they should just be honest and say we popped out a baby after humping like rabbits lmao! The group continues to go through the cards to find out that even their enemies sent cards and people that wanted more screen time sent some too lol. Even Ana sent a card (well more like a buddle of the same card) saying that Gintoki and her had gotten married which lead them to finding congratulation cards from people!
Hasegawa also sent them a New Year’s card from far off island where he claims to have lost his memory and only knows his name and oldsocks (which Gintoki says is really orthodox). The episode does a flip then from New Years to Valentines and chocolate. It runs the same way as the first but with Gintoki bitching and moaning that no one got him chocolate while acting like they are playing Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. Kagura wants to give the boys chocolate from her but is too shy feeling that she is not girly enough to do something like that. She enlists the help of Otae, Sachan and Tsukuyo. After numerous disastrous attempts, it ends with all of them being embarrassed to give the guys chocolate and sitting in a tub of chocolate to hide from them. All the girls give Kagura their chocolates and in way, run away. Kagura is fed up with all of it, returns home and tosses the chocolate on the table then leaves. The boys fight over who gets what and upon opening each box find out that they all were from ‘Kagura’ with a little help from the girls unknown to Kagura. Awwww…
