Gin Tama, Vol. 3
It's samurai vs. aliens!
The samurai didn't stand a chance. First, the aliens invaded Japan. Next, they took all the jobs. And then they confiscated everyone's swords. So what does a hotheaded former samurai like Gintoki "Gin" Sakata do to make ends meet? Take any odd job that comes his way, even if it means losing his dignity.
Gin's "to do" list for this volume:
1. Pick a fight with those Shinsengumi losers
2. Throw out my old SHONEN JUMP magazines
3. Save Shinpachi and Kagara AGAIN
4. Take Kagura's so-called dog for a walk
5. Protect the environment
Hideaki Sorachi was born on May 25, 1979, and grew up in Hokkaido, Japan. His ongoing series, Gin Tama, became a huge hit when it began running in the pages of Japan's Weekly Shonen Jump in 2004. A Gin Tama animated series followed soon after, premiering on Japanese TV in April 2006. Sorachi made his manga debut with the one-shot story "Dandelion," which is included in volume 1 of the Gin Tama graphic novels.
