Regarding Joui activities, I don't think he (Sakata Gintoki) concerns himself with such complicated things. That man, only wants to see a smile on that girl's face.
Yamazaki Sagaru


Synopsis (extracted from TV Tokyo):

Shinsengumi's Inspector Yamazaki reported on the clash between Katsura's faction and Takasugi's faction to Vice-Commander Hijikata Toushirou. Hijikata wondered how Katsura's faction, with so few capable men, were able to fight off Takasugi's faction, which had heavyweight stalwarts like Kawakami Bansai 河上 万斉 and Okada Nizou 岡田 似蔵. Yamazaki replied that Katsura was assisted by Sakata Gintoki 坂田 銀時.

Hijikata explained (while wolfing down a bowl of 'Hijikata Special') that he ignored Gintoki in the past because there was nothing suspicious about his activities that relate to Joui activities then. Now as Gintoki was injured in the same fracas, a link is established, and Yamazaki was ordered to investigate Gintoki's relationship with Jouishishi, with the orders that Gintoki is to be killed if investigations proved that he is indeed a Joui rebel.

Yamazaki carried out the order by first interviewing all those people who hung out with Gintoki, including Hasegawa Taizou 長谷川 泰三, Terakado Tsuu 寺門 通, et al, but could not turn up anything to tie him down. He even visited Yorozuya's office, but it was closed as both Kagura 神楽 and Shimura Shinpachi 志村 新八 were taking care of Gintoki at the Shimura dojo, as informed by Otose お登勢.

Thus Yamazaki decided to infiltrate the compound where Gintoki was recuperating, aka the Shimura dojo, Koudoukan 恒道館. Though his entry into the dojo was smooth, little does he know that leaving the compound would be fraught with danger ...
