.....READ IT TO FIND OUT.  Jesus christ.  In a nutshell, it is a recently published Jump manga that is like....think Edo In Space.  Pretty interesting and weird at times...

I'll have to check it out. What's the plot like?

Filippo Inzaghi is da man. Also, Italy is da man. AC Milan is also da man just as equally.

I've read the Jump version and I think you guys are doing pretty good with it. The storyline is somewhat original but, even though I don't like most of the characters too much I say it will be pretty intesting and something to read when you have free-time.

If by Kenshin you mean dealing with "samurai", then yes, there is an incredibly superficial similarity.

if you wanna be literate "Gintama" means silver balls. also "Kintama" means gold balls or testicles. very funny how one letter separates those two.

You were right about Gin, but in this case "Tama" is "Soul". So, it's "silver soul".

The "tama" in Kintama (金玉) is a different "tama" than in Gintama (銀魂), heh. But yeah, it's definitely intended to be a pun. =)

Actually, I decided I'm gonna put a similar note in the first chapter of volume 2, but not the same as above...
