Gin Tama, Volumes 5-7 by Hideaki Sorachi

book 46:  Gin Tama, Volume 5 by Hideaki Sorachi

The adventures of Gintoki Sakata and his merry odd jobs crew and even odder aquaintances continues...  In this volume, they try to catch a sea monster, exorcise a ghost, control Kagura's shopping network purchases while battling a sword-collecting alien, watch (destroy) a convenience store for a friend, end up part of a tranny cabaret, and meet Sa-chan (Ayame Sarutobi), a near-sighted kunoichi who ends up with Gin in a compromising position.

book 47:  Gin Tama, Volume 6 by Hideaki Sorachi

This volume has the odd jobs crew looking for mushrooms in the forest and fending off an alien mushroom-controlled bear, taking down an underground fight-to-the-death ring secretly supported by the government, end up in the hospital with food poisoning (meeting a lot of people they know there for different reasons) and helping a pretty nurse make a love match, deal with giant alien cockroaches, and stop a shady cult whose hairy, stick-on moles grant wearers access to their dreams.

book 48:  Gin Tama, Volume 7 by Hideaki Sorachi

This volume involves people getting blown up or hit on the head a lot with subsequent loss, regain, and reloss of memories.  Somehow in the midst of this, they take down a anarchist group trying to blow up Edo, get into a battle with a former shinobi for the last copy of Shonen Jump, have their apartment destroyed, rebuilt, and destroyed again by an ex-compatriot, while Katsura helps at a ramen shop, help a fireworks maker say goodbye to his beloved wife, and Kagura's papa shows up to take her home whether she likes it or not.
