List of Gintama episodes (season 2)
The second season of the Japanese anime television series Gintama are directed by Shinji Takamatsu and animated by Sunrise. They aired in TV Tokyo from April 5, 2007 until March 27, 2008 with a total of 50 episodes which are episodes 51-99 from the main series. The anime is based on Hideaki Sorachi's manga of the same name. The story revolves around an eccentric samurai, Gintoki Sakata, his apprentice, Shinpachi Shimura, and a teenage alien girl named Kagura. All three are "free-lancers" who search for work in order to pay the monthly rent, which usually goes unpaid anyway.
On January 8, 2009, the streaming video site Crunchyroll began offering English subtitled episodes of the series. The episodes are available on Crunchyroll within hours of airing in Japan to paying members. The episodes can also be watched for free a week after release. The first available episode was episode 139. On the same day, Crunchyroll also began uploading episodes from the beginning of the series at a rate of two a week.
Six musical themes are used for this season: two openings themes and four ending themes. Episodes 50-75 use "Gin'iro no Sora" (銀色の空?, lit. "Silver Sky") by redballoon. The following episodes replace it with "Kasanaru Kage" (かさなる影?, lit. "Overlapping Shadow") by Hearts Grow. The first ending theme is "Shura" (修羅?, lit. "Carnage") by Does. Since episode 63 it is replaced with "Kiseki" (奇跡?, lit. "Miracle") by Snowkel. It is used until episode 75, while since episode 76 the ending is "Signal" by Kelun. The fourth ending used since episode 88 is "Speed of flow" by The Rodeo Carburettor. Episodes 61, 62, 97 and 99 exchange the use of the themes; this leaves episode 61 and 62 with "Shura" as the opening and with "Gin'iro Sora" as the ending while "Speed of flow" and "Kasanaru Kage" are opening and ending themes, respectively, in episodes 97 and 99.
