The anime television channel AT-X announced on Friday that its showings of Gintama' episode 232, "The people you tend to forget tend to show up after you forget them," have been cancelled at the request of the program's original broadcaster, TV Tokyo. The episode had already aired on TV Tokyo on October 31, and would have run on AT-X on November 15 and 18. According to AT-X, episodes 233 and later will resume on the channel on November 22.

Among other items, the episode had parodies of the public service announcements from the Advertising Council Japan and a politician named "Renhō" (a possible reference to an Upper House legislator and the current Minister for Government Revitalisation whose full name is Renhō Murata).
