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 Sakata "Gin" Gintoki do to make ends meet? Take any odd job that comes his way, even if it means losing his dignity.


Do's and Don'ts for Daddy-Daughter Day:
1.  Don't let alien monsters grow exponentially by siphoning energy from space terminals and eating your daughter.
2.  Do show your dad you've learned to use your abnormal strength to help others--not hurt them.
3.  Do respect your daughter's planetary preferences, especially when they're in writing.
4.  Don't assassinate your daughter's boyfriend.
