The “Amanto”, aliens from outer space who have invaded Earth and completely taken over Feudal Japan. As a result, a ban on the use of swords was established, and samurai in Japan are treated with contempt as a result.
However, one man, Gintoki Sakata, still possesses the heart of a samurai, although because of his love of sweets and his work at the Yorozuya (a shop that makes anything), one would not expect it of him. Accompanied in his work by Shinpachi Shimura, a boy with glasses and a big heart; Kagura, a girl with an umbrella and a bottomless stomach; and for his pet Sadaharu, a huge dog. Of course, these strange jobs are not always easy, sometimes you have problems with the police, with the rebels or with murderers, leading to unfortunate but funny situations.
