Gintama, the oddball of an anime, has samurai, aliens, giant animals, and a ton of insane characters. Yet we somehow love it for not sticking to any shounen stereotypes.

Gintoki Sakata, the hero of Gintama, is a lazy samurai. As fans of the series, we cannot help but listen to all the Yorozuya trio’s gossip. From hilarious situations to just plain weird ones, the series is plain addictive.

Gintama: The Final movie is inspiring a new novel, which will ship on the same day as the movie’s release. Both the film and the novel will be released on 8th January 2021.

The novel adaptation of the film will be written by Mirei Miyamoto. Although the film is titled “The Final,” we know better than being duped again.

Gintoki himself called the producers out in a trailer about the last-film promotional tactics that they use.

Priced at $7.47 (¥ 780) exclusive of tax, the book will have a total of 256 pages with four additional front pages.

The movie will be the adaptation of the final chapters of the manga. It will also add some new instances and original scenes in the mix.

A new Gintama net anime will debut in January 2021. Although the plot has not been revealed yet, it will be the sequel to the original series.

It will tie in with Gintama: The Final movie and feature an all-new plotline. It will stream on dTV in Japan.

Hideaki Sorachi’s Gintama will always stay a fan-favorite. The manga ended in June 2019, but we hope that the series as a whole doesn’t end anytime soon!

About Gintama

The story is set in an alternate-history late-Edo period, where humanity is attacked by aliens called “Amanto.”

Edo Japan’s samurai fight to defend Earth, but the shōgun cowardly surrenders when he realizes the aliens’ power.

He agrees to an unequal contract with the aliens, placing a ban on carrying swords in public and allowing the invaders to enter the country.

The samurai’s swords are confiscated, and the Tokugawa Bakufu becomes a puppet government.

The series focuses on an eccentric samurai, Gintoki Sakata, who works as an Odd Jobs freelancer. Although the story is mostly episodic, a few story arcs and recurring antagonists develop.
