Has anyone ever watched "Gin Tama?"

Considering giving it a go.

I've wanted to watch Gin Tama, but I've been told it's a bit impenetrable if you're not an old hardcore weeb.

Isn't Gintama just a parody of other anime? I see pictures of it parodying DBZ sometimes. Unless it also parodies obscure stuff it sounds pretty simple.

It's not just that, from what I've heard. The biggest barrier for me is that, apparently, a lot of the humor relies heavily on Japanese culture in a way that you might not pick up on even if you watch a lot of anime. I've certainly had that experience with other anime where a joke flew completely over my head or it just didn't make sense in the dub.

Also, Gin Tama is just... long. It's not absurd like some Shonen juggernauts, but yeesh, it's hard for me to want to start something like that.

I see, I guess it is a tough entry then. I really don't watch that much anime and it's usually mainstream, or was at some point, so maybe that's why I never experienced an anime that had those kinds cultural barriers, unless you count Brock's donuts...but that didn't go over my head so much as it did confuse me. "wtf kind of donut is that...?"
