The sci-fi samurai

I'm not sure what to think about Yanime's new release, Gintama. On one hand, it seems to be just another pedestrian swordfighting story set in samurai-era Japan. But then, we see that the city of Edo has been taken over by aliens. And then the humans who live there are happily coexisting with them, making full use of anachronistic technology. And there's that crazy kid called the "freelancer" who wields a katana and rides a motor scooter?

It's weird as all get out, and I think I may very well stick around for more chapters. The titles alone are pretty amusing.
