It took me a minute to figure out Silver Soul is Gintama. I thought you were referencing some spin-off or something.

The "final arc" that followed Showdown on Rakuyou is called 銀ノ魂篇 "Shirogane no Tamashii-hen", which translates to "Silver Soul/Soul of Silver" arc. You know, the whole war against the Altana Liberation Army and Utsuro's forces.

 

Since I'm unsure where we're headed with this current "Final Fantasy" gig and whether it is still part of the Silver Soul arc, I decided to refer to them separately.

I like the design for Real Timeskip Kagura. Nothing about it feels exaggerated, just well-balanced

But if her behaviour as "Kanna" and her last reaction is anything to go by, she won't be acting queenly for long. She'll continue to be the potty mouth, loudmouthed glutton that we've come to know and love.

 

Present day Takasugi, doing stupid stuff like mentioning Portopia. I never thought I'll ever witness such a spectacle. Gin-san is just capable of dragging anyone down with him into stupid territory.

 

The underwater tag team was unexpectedly amazing as well. As per one comment on the Gintama Baidu board, so long as Gintoki is around, Takasugi can never  become the overlord of evil.

 

What could "that" be that Gintoki had with him? Can't imagine it's Sadaharu, and an Altana Crystal is meaningless for any prospective revival of Utsuro

And does this mean the Naraku were responsible for the intergalactic terrorism on the Terminals?

I imagine whatever Gin has is related to Utsuro--perhaps Utsuro's altana core?? 

 

We never did see Utsuro's body.

There has been some speculation on the internet that whatever Gintoki had on him, it may have been inside that pouch that he had handed to the boatman earlier. Which he intends to retrieve afterwards.

 

While I do think that's possible, after giving some thought, I have another crack theory on what the Naraku are after: the Four Leaf Clover katana that Gintoki as a child received from Shouyo ... or something that's kept inside it.

 

I've always found that katana to be really distinct, yet it's odd that we've never seen it outside of kid Gintoki flashbacks. I can't imagine it being destroyed when Shouka Sonjuku got burnt down, and it's not present in the Joui War flashbacks.

So where did it go? Maybe Gintoki kept it somewhere special.

 

... actually, if he did that, then surely Takasugi should've known about it

 

Well even if the katana isn't the goal, I do still want to know where it went off to

I can't believe what Gintoki had would be so utterly terrifying. Utsuro's heart, one that is living and beating no less.

 

Those bandages with the markings would suggest that a spell/seal has been applied to it to ward off Altana energy and prevent further regeneration.

Who did it though? Ane and Mone? The Onmyouji? Or someone prior in ages past?

 

I get why Naraku would want it, but you would think Gintoki and Takasugi wouldn't have risked its existence. Not for a pipe dream surely?

 

And where is this ship headed off to? I can't imagine them leaving Japan.

 

---

 

Can I just say, I really appreciate how Sorachi is handling Takasugi's character?

 

Like, for most of the series' run, he had been hyped as the biggest candidate for the final villain. An assumption that easily comes to mind due to the hazy nature of a main plot.

And because of that, we never imagined the Gorilla had plans for him beyond playing the villain. We never imagined Sorachi would make him team up with Gintoki, or that the Kiheitai would ally themselves with the rest of our heroes, or even transition him into anti-hero status who in reality has to put up with Gintoki's stupidity, past and present, like every other character.

 

The best part of all this, is the entire process has felt natural. The changes in Mr "I just want to destroy the world" doesn't feel forced at all.

Sorachi is just that skilled of a writer.

So turns out to be true that what Gin had was related to Utsuro, it being his heart and all. I found it strange that we didn't actually see Utsuro's corpse so this comes as no surprise.

Yeah, I feel the same way. Takasugi falls into the straw man character so naturally when with Gin.

 

At first, it was off-putting but now it's quite hilarious  :lol:

 

This is the real Takasugi that we're seeing; freed from all that angst and anger--at least a little bit, lol.
