'''Synopsis''' (extracted from [http://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/anime/gintama/ TV Tokyo]):
+
Gintoki has his final showdown with Nizō and the Benizakura, while a familiar friend reappears to try and deal with Takasugi.
   
The battle .... on Takasugi's ship deck ...
+
==Plot==
  +
[[Okada Nizou|Nizou]]'s elaborate inner-monologue detailing his attraction to light and how humans are like moths attracted to light. However, as much as he's attracted to the light, there's no greater pleasure then snuffing out the light that humans reflect. On the other hand, the lights from [[Takasugi Shinsuke|Takasugi]] and [[Sakata Gintoki|Gintoki]] tantalize Nizou, as they're off-beat and irrational. But what annoys Nizou the most is the silver color of Gintoki's light and he then proceeds to go on the attack against Gintoki. As the two skirmishes, Katsura confronts Takasugi, who shows him of the battle between Gintoki and Nizou. Perturbed by the fact that Takasugi's comrade Nizou is straining his body beyond his limits. Katsura questions Takasugi if he has no compassion for his comrade. An apathetic Takasugi answers that it's Nizou's desire. Elsewhere, Tetsuya informs his sister Tetsuko, Nizou wishes to become a sword that protects Takasugi's flame. As Gintoki tries to defend himself against Nizou, Tetsuya is astonished by how Gintoki can match the power of the Benizakura. Gintoki starts to gain the upper hand on Nizou until Nizou's arm starts to pulsate.
   
高杉の船の甲板で死闘を繰り広げる銀時と似蔵。対艦兵器・紅桜に意識までも侵食され、暴走を始める似蔵に、鉄子が打った刀で応戦する銀時。圧倒的な力で攻め立てる似蔵だったが、その劣勢を徐々に銀時が挽回し始める。その頃、船内では、紅桜を使って倒幕を企てる高杉とその紅桜の刀匠・鉄也に、妹の鉄子と桂が対峙していた。
+
Meanwhile [[Shimura Shinpachi|Shinpachi]] and [[Kagura]] face off against, [[Takechi Henpeita|Takechi]] and [[Kijima Matako|Matako]] respectively. Their fight is interrupted when a wrapped up Gintoki who was coiled by the Benizakura's wires falls through the ceiling. Also, Nizou emerges from the rubble now with both of his arms fused with the Benizakura and with his mind completely consumed by the sword. In an intrepid attempt to rescue Gintoki, Tetsuko stabs Nizou's arm with another sword she forged. Sequentially, Shinpachi and Kagura attack Nizou in hopes to free Gintoki from his bind. Tetsuya, astounded by the turn of events, has a flashback back when his father was still alive and how he tried in earnest to surpass his father. Back to the present, Tetsuya sacrifices himself in order to save his sister Tetsuko from the rampaging Nizou. Because of this noble act, Gintoki frees himself from his coiled state. While Gintoki regains his composure, the siblings have a heart to heart together. Gintoki then gives an eloquent speech about swords and with a single slash, ends Nizou's life.
   
==Spoofs, Parodies and References==

After giving a confession to Tetsuko, Tetsuya dies to his injuries. Katsura and Takasugi continue their discussion together and soon the [[Harusame]] pirates arrive. Takasugi made a deal with the pirate organization in order to cooperate with them, he offered Gintoki and Katsura's heads to them. In a bind, Katsura and Gintoki face off against the Harusame pirates, as Elizabeth takes Shinpachi and Kagura off the ship. Once a sizable amount of pirates have been defeated, the duo makes an open declaration against Takasugi and escape.

On a Moonless Night, Insects Are Drawn to the Light (闇夜の虫は光に集う, Yamiyo no mushi wa hikari ni tsudou) is the sixty-first episode of the Gintama anime.

IntroductionEdit

Gintoki has his final showdown with Nizō and the Benizakura, while a familiar friend reappears to try and deal with Takasugi.

PlotEdit

Nizou's elaborate inner-monologue detailing his attraction to light and how humans are like moths attracted to light. However, as much as he's attracted to the light, there's no greater pleasure then snuffing out the light that humans reflect. On the other hand, the lights from Takasugi and Gintoki tantalize Nizou, as they're off-beat and irrational. But what annoys Nizou the most is the silver color of Gintoki's light and he then proceeds to go on the attack against Gintoki. As the two skirmishes, Katsura confronts Takasugi, who shows him of the battle between Gintoki and Nizou. Perturbed by the fact that Takasugi's comrade Nizou is straining his body beyond his limits. Katsura questions Takasugi if he has no compassion for his comrade. An apathetic Takasugi answers that it's Nizou's desire. Elsewhere, Tetsuya informs his sister Tetsuko, Nizou wishes to become a sword that protects Takasugi's flame. As Gintoki tries to defend himself against Nizou, Tetsuya is astonished by how Gintoki can match the power of the Benizakura. Gintoki starts to gain the upper hand on Nizou until Nizou's arm starts to pulsate.

Meanwhile Shinpachi and Kagura face off against, Takechi and Matako respectively. Their fight is interrupted when a wrapped up Gintoki who was coiled by the Benizakura's wires falls through the ceiling. Also, Nizou emerges from the rubble now with both of his arms fused with the Benizakura and with his mind completely consumed by the sword. In an intrepid attempt to rescue Gintoki, Tetsuko stabs Nizou's arm with another sword she forged. Sequentially, Shinpachi and Kagura attack Nizou in hopes to free Gintoki from his bind. Tetsuya, astounded by the turn of events, has a flashback back when his father was still alive and how he tried in earnest to surpass his father. Back to the present, Tetsuya sacrifices himself in order to save his sister Tetsuko from the rampaging Nizou. Because of this noble act, Gintoki frees himself from his coiled state. While Gintoki regains his composure, the siblings have a heart to heart together. Gintoki then gives an eloquent speech about swords and with a single slash, ends Nizou's life.

After giving a confession to Tetsuko, Tetsuya dies to his injuries. Katsura and Takasugi continue their discussion together and soon the Harusame pirates arrive. Takasugi made a deal with the pirate organization in order to cooperate with them, he offered Gintoki and Katsura's heads to them. In a bind, Katsura and Gintoki face off against the Harusame pirates, as Elizabeth takes Shinpachi and Kagura off the ship. Once a sizable amount of pirates have been defeated, the duo makes an open declaration against Takasugi and escape.
