Synopsis (extracted from TV Tokyo):

Otae and Shinpachi, who have been invited to Kyuubei's birthday party, collected a cake ordered specially for her, and began the train ride to the party. Along the way, Otae mentioned that Gintoki, Zura, Hasegawa Taizou and Kamenashi have all been invited too. Shinpachi voiced concern that the invited motley crew may embarrass Kyuubei, whose family is of high social standing and many VIPs are bound to be invitedverify: exact words? . When they arrived at the main gate, they were mysteriously ushered in by a side entrance by Toujou Ayumu who as usual was lurking nearby surreptitiously. Explaining that ...

Along the way, they were astonished to meet entertainment industry celebrities like Oguri Shunnosuke, Tamo-san on their way to the hall.

However, upon entering the hall where the 'party' was supposed to take place, the Shimura siblings were shocked to find an opulent grand banquet had been prepared for the celebration, with full orchestral accompaniment and MC. Just then, they spied the motley crew of Gintoki, Zura, Hasegawa Taizou and what appeared to be Kamenashi's empty shell sitting at a table. Shinpachi was relieved to find them behaving themselves, but on walking closer, they were found to be playing

九兵衛の誕生パーティーの招待を受けたお妙と新八は、プレゼントの特注ケーキを手に柳生家の屋敷に向かう。しかし会場に入ってみると、芸能界、政界、あらゆる分野の著名人が! 自分たちは場違いなのではと心配になってくる二人。見ると、向こうのテーブルで銀時、桂、長谷川、亀梨(ただし甲羅のみ)がパーティーそっちのけで大騒ぎ! このメンバーが揃って会が無事に進行するわけもなく、いつものようにパプニングが起こり始め・・・・・・

Spoofs, Parodies and References

  • The actors invited to the party -
Gintama's Oguri Shunnosuke Real-life haiyuu (actor) Oguri Shun
  • Oguri Shunnosuke 小栗 旬之助 - This is referring to 小栗旬 Oguri Shun, a popular Japanese male actor. The actor's birthday is 26 Dec, but the episode was broadcast in April, so this episode is unlikely to be a 'tribute' to the real-life actor's birthday, even though he was shown partaking in Kyuubei's birthday cake towards the end of the episode.
Gintama's Tamo-san Real-life Japanese comedian Tamori-san
  • The other is Tamo-san from お昼の顔 ohiru no kao - this is referring to タモリさん tamori-san, of the same show, which airs Mon to Fri 12-1pm. Refer to Japanese Wikipedia for full details.
Gintama's Japanika assessment book The original Japonika Gakushou Chou series
  • The assessment book bought by Gintoki as present for Kyuubei, the japanika gakushou chou -
  • This is referring to ジャポニカ学習帳 japonika gakushou chou, a series of assessment books for junior schoolers, generally priced below 200 yen per book. This series is carried by Showa Note, a sponsor of some Gintama episodes, e.g. Episode 9.
Cover of TV manga Sazae-san
  • サザエさん sazae-san is a long-running manga/anime series that started in 1969 and is still ongoing.
  • Otae mentioned that even the reckless Gintoki should be aware of TPO -
  • TPO = Time(時間), Place(場所), Occasion(場合), this is a catchphrase coined by 石津 謙介 Ishiji Kensuke, a Japanese fashion designer of the VAN label.


  • The board game that Gintoki, Katsura and Hasegawa were playing is called 人生すごろく jinsei sugoroku, Life's Double-Six. This game is possibly a combined reference to-
  1. the board game called 人生ゲーム jinsei gemu, The Game of Life, which uses a roulette wheel to determine players' turns.
  2. すごろく sugoroku (meaning double-six, from a pair of dice), a snake-and-ladder type game.
  • 海の幸手長エビとカキのバーナフェロー包み焼きプロバンス風 濃厚なソース添え seafood freshwater prawnverify: ???


Trivia

In the closing scene of Episode 154, where everyone was shown enjoying the cake picnic-style, in the original Weekly Shounen Jump publication Oguri Shunnosuke was not present. He was subsequently added in the aforementioned scene in the tankoubon release, which the anime episode followed.
