Lesson 322 is the 322nd chapter of the Gintama series. In this Lesson, the Yorozuya and Hasegawa Taizou were working as life savers in a pool when they were visited by an unexpected guest.


The Lesson begins with the children playing happily in a pool. Gintoki appeared, telling them to take a break and get out of the water if they did not want to have their lips purple. As the children refuse to do so, Shinpachi had himself painted purple and pretended to be dying due to staying underwater too long. As a result, the terrified children left the pool in horror, much to Hasegawa's disapproval. While commenting that the children were purple with fear then, Hasegawa made a speech about the meaning of being a life saver. Though, Kagura and Shinpachi did not seem to mind the speech at all.

While so, Hasegawa and (a reluctant) Gintoki looked for "hot moms" coming to the pool. They quickly found one, who turned out to be Tsukuyo (with Seita coming along.) Before playing the water slide, the duo did the swimming practices, which involved covering themselves in a lotion and sitting on a stool. As soon as they went down the slide, Hasegawa slipped on the lotion, slided down with them and hit his head against the pool (while the duo safely crossed it.) Katsura, who was hit by the stool, showed up with a watermelon and was, again, hit by the stool (with Gintoki riding on this time.)

Not long after, Gintoki and Hasegawa continued looking for girls in the pool. This time, they found Kyuubei and Otae, and were beaten by both of them. An embarrassed Kyuubei pretended to cry (while secretly smiling,)which worsen the two men's situation. Three stalkers - Kondo, Toujou and Ayame - then appeared, claiming that they had got footages of their "subjects" (Otae, Kyuubei and Gintoki, respectively.) However, they were quickly beaten by their "subjects." Suddenly, the water started turning red, due to the blood seemingly coming from a bleeding man, which made everyone panic and left the pool. In fact, it was Katsura catching a fish underwater, and he was, again, hit by the stool (with Tsukuyo, Seita, Kagura and Shinpachi riding on.)

Towards the end of the day, as more people left, Gintoki and Hasegawa started relaxing in the pool too. While Hasegawa jumped into the pool naked, Gintoki poured strawberry-flavoured milk into the pool. Nevertheless, they were interrupted by Matsudaira, who wanted to borrow the pool... for the Shogun.
