# SUMMARY OF WEEK 9:
|**TENTH**|Kondo & Elizabeth & Yamazaki|6|
* Otae continue in climbing higher and higher and currently she is sitting on 5th place leaving Hijikata behind on 6th place.
* The biggest surprise would be Yamazaki who after 7 weeks without a single vote achieved to earn 6 votes and jumped to tenth place **BUT** Zenzo beat him to it with raising from 0 votes to 7 votes and secured to himself a 9th place. It seems having hemorrhoids has its benefits.

Rewatchers please dont talk without using spoiler tags [Spoilers] >!like this!< about events which still didn’t happen in anime, don’t name characters that weren’t introduced yet, don’t post pictures of characters yet to be introduced and try to refrain from using arcs and episodes names yet to be introduced.
*DON’T EVEN TRY TO BE VAGUE THINKING YOU ARE SO CLEVER AND NO ONE WILL CONNECT TWO AND TWO TOGETHER LIKE SAYING IT WOULD BE SHAME IF YOUR LOCAL POST OFFICE SENT YOU A BOMBASTIC LIST. JUST. USE. SPOILERS TAGS. LIKE THIS* [Spoilers] >!https://i.imgur.com/nojEEcg.png!<
There will be first watchers discussing it together with us and I believe nobody here wants them to be spoiled.
If you want to talk about something you noticed on your rewatch, which is hinting about future events hid it properly underneath the spoilers like the fact [Spoilers] >!that the information hidden in this spoiler is totally pointless.!<

**QUESTIONS FOR YOU:**
Instead of a questions, i have a **IMPORTANT THING TO SAY.**
Next week we are going to watch Yagyu arc with a new OP and new ED and i **STRONGLY RECOMMEND TO NOT WATCH THE NEW ED UNTIL WE REACH EPISODE 80 (You can watch the ED on episode 80 without worries)**
I won’t tell you why i recommend to skip that ED for few episodes, but there is a reason and i wish someone would tell me about it when i was first watching Gintama.
**Or as** u/b0bba_Fett **summarised the issue with ED 7, here is a better explanation why i decided to recommend to skip ED7 for a few episodes:**
And as an extension of the Spoiler warning for ED 7, I agree the warning is worth putting out there, but the twist isn’t super important, and odds are you’ll have figured it out well before episode 80, so if you think you’ve got the arc’s twist figured out, feel free to watch it, as it’s a Top 3 Gintama ED easy.
