Gintama will parody anything and everything and every episode is hilarious. Gin and his two associates take on any job to try and keep from being eternally penny-less and make fun of both Japanese and Western culture while doing so. Some arcs have extremely good battles, up there or above any other shonen titles. The quality on these two DVDs is excellent. Subtitles seem accurate. Note, it only has Japanese audio track, but then again it'd be too hard for anything to really translate over. Another thing is that they have subtitles that explain some of the inside jokes and references, but those do seem to disappear too quickly, so you'll likely have to go back and pause it to read that. I highly recommend this series. Right now it's taking a break in Japan since it ran too close to the manga material, but it will take a while before these catch up and by then they'll be doing more episodes there.
