The Fist of the North Star manga by Buronson and Tetsuo Hara was adapted into two animated television series produced by Toei Animation. The original series, simply titled Hokuto no Ken (北斗の拳), lasted 109 episodes, which aired on Fuji TV from October 11, 1984 to March 5, 1987, adapting the first 136 chapters of the original manga. A sequel series, Hokuto no Ken 2, took over the previous series' time slot and lasted 43 episodes, airing from March 12, 1987 to February 18, 1988, which adapts chapters 137 to 210 (the final chapters of the manga were not adapted).
I've since finished Hokuto no Ken, D.Gray-Man, Boboboubo Boubobo and Saint Seiya, and I'm currently watching Gintama. Out of all the anime I still hadn't watched before, Gintama is by far the longest, so I was just wondering if any of you guys knew which episode contains each of Gintoki's attacks and references, namely:
I've since found out that the Kamehameha attack appears in episode 114. The Justaway reference is early on in the series, so I already saw it. Oh, and does he ever utter the \"Sugar King\" line (an obvious reference to One Piece) in the actual series
Pretty much, though the site doesn't specify which episode each reference comes from, or even if it comes from any episode at all (the developers might have just been having some fun with the property - it really lends itself to it).
Basically, I just want to know how many episodes will I have to watch to see all the references outlined in my original post. I already know it's going to have to be at least 146, I just need to know if I'm going to have to go even further beyond.
If I remember correctly, one of the early episodes has Kagura say the Gokou line. He makes a One Piece reference in another early episode, when he and Zura \"try-out\" for a space pirate crew (forgot the line, but it has to do with finding the One Piece although he says it wrong) and I think he was wearing a straw hat... It's been a while so I don't really remember.
PPS:I know its a lot of episodes but when you get to Yoshiwara arc Gintama will change completely...when Gintama gets serious its arcs blow almost everything outta water.Make sure to watch until 267.The Shogun arc is insane.

Although the series has never been fully released on VHS in Japan, Toei released three hour-long \"digest\" episodes on VHS during the late 1980s, composed of clips of episodes from Chapters 1, 2, and 4 of the first series. The complete series has been collected on DVD in Japan, in a boxed collection known as the Super Premium Box and in 26 individually released discs containing 5-6 episodes per volume. A three volume DVD series, the Kyūkyoku Retsuden series, which features key episodes of the series. Toei later produced an HD Remaster Edition of the Hokuto no Ken DVD set, which was released on March 28, 2008.
