The first season of Gintama was released in 2006.Since then the series has earned an irreplaceable place in our hearts. Gintama is a name every anime fan hears, even though they have never watched it. It’s difficult to pin the genre to this anime. It has some epic battles and some incredible comedy. At the same time, the series also has some heartbreaking scenes. But again, the series also has some useful moments. In its 15 years of existence, Gintama has presented some of the best moments in anime.

Gintama – An Overview
Gintama is set in a historical era. In this era, the world is invaded by aliens who ban all Samurai. Gintoki Sakata, the protagonist of the show happens to have the true heart of a Samurai. The series follows Gintoki’s life as he goes through many funny situations with his friends, Kaguya and Shinpaichi. Gintama is a series that can trigger all your emotions. Even though one day you may laugh, Gintama can change your mood to sadness.
Gintama is one type of anime that has a genre in it. Even though it is mostly referred to as a comedy anime, Gintama is much more than that. The series also makes numerous references to Japanese history. It’s amazing how well all references fit, no matter how subtle they use them.
Gintama: Last Movie – Release Date
Is the anime that has been running for a long time finally ending? It seems so. In the fall of 2020, Gintama’s final film was announced. Shortly after, a trailer was released. The trailer shocked the entire fan community as they waited for the final film with overwhelming emotions.
Gintama: The Final Movie was released on January 8, 2021. So far, the film has only been released in Japan. There has been no announcement on the anime’s official website or the studio regarding a release outside of Japan. It may take a long time before people overseas can enjoy this film. However, as per reports, Gintama: The Final Movie is currently the film with the highest gross revenue in 2021.
There were high expectations that fans had from this last film. The positive reaction that Gintama got was even more exciting. It was a bit disappointing that international fans had to wait a little longer to watch it. However, all we can do is wait patiently and keep updating ourselves to find out when the film will finally air globally.
Gintama: The Last Movie– Hope.
So far, the anime has followed the manga pretty well. Since the film is being directed by its original creator, Hideaki Soraichi, it will also follow the manga (most likely). The final film will probably depict the final chapter of the manga. If this is the case, viewers are on an extraordinary journey. Without a doubt, there will be tingling moments with some very impressive storylines. But, this film will also make you heavy hearted and pillow peeing at the same time.
Not much can be predicted from the trailer. The trailer itself depicts the thickness of the comedy that the final film will deliver. Like other Gintama projects, unexpected moments will probably be a big part of it. The trailer introduces “Dōraku Shinjō” as a new insert. The theme song for this film is Wadachi, performed by SPYAIR.
Gintama: The Final Movie – Cast and Character
The Last Film made no changes to the cast. Gintoki will be voiced by Sugita Tomokazu, Shinpaichi Shimura will be filled by Sakaguchi Daisuke and Kagura will be played by Rie Kugimiya. Other characters we will see in the final film are Sogo Okita (voiced by Kenichi Suzumura), Isao Kondo (voiced by Susumu Chiba), and Tama (voiced by Omi Minami).
Once again, Gintama has a great player. The quality of the film looks quite promising and as a fan, I’m definitely looking forward to the release of this film globally.
