Hideaki Sorachi was born on May 25, 1979 and grew up in Hokkaido, Japan. His ongoing series, GIN TAMA, became a huge hit when it began running in the pages of Japan's Weekly Shonen Jump in 2004. A GIN TAMA animated series followed soon after, premiering on Japanese TV in April 2006. Sorachi made his manga debut with the one-shot story DANDELION, which is included in volume 1 of the GIN TAMA graphic novels.
Gin's "to do" list for this volume:
1. Pick a fight with those Shinsengumi losers
2. Throw out my old SHONEN JUMP magazines
3. Save Shinpachi and Kagara AGAIN
4. Take Kagura's so-called dog for a walk
5. Protect the environment

Gin Tama vol. 3 was pretty much the same as the rest of the volumes yet to come. In fact, it was the perfect description of the series. Pointless and stupid it was, yet somehow, in the most obscure way, it was able to keep my attention.
