Gintama Anime Movie Announced For Early 2021 Release

21.December.2019 | ANIME&GAME / MOVIE

It was announced on Niconico live stream on Saturday December 21 that the Gintama anime series is getting a new film adaptation which is set for release in early 2021. The live stream was hosted by three of the voice actors: Tomokazu Sugita (Sakata Gintoki), Daisuke Sakaguchi (Shinpachi Shimura), and Rie Kugimiya (Kagura).

 

Gintama is an internationally beloved manga series written and illustrated by Hideaki Sorachi that is serialised in Weekly Shonen Jump. The manga has sold over 55 million copies. This will be the series’ third animated film after Gintama: The Movie (2010) and Gintama: The Movie: The Final Chapter: Be Forever Yorozuya (2013).


The key visual released for the upcoming film features the three characters on Gintoki’s set, each of them with their own director’s chair, symbolising the “shooting” of the film.

 

In an interview with the three voice actors, they were asked to give a message to fans anticipating the release of the film.

Tomokazu Sugita (Sakata Gintoki): “We’re waiting for the voice recording to start too and ask for your support.”

 

Daisuke Sakaguchi (Shinpachi Shimura): “Are we really doing this? I really can’t believe it <laughs>. Will this the last one? Are we being deceived again? In any case, I’ll be sure to work hard. Look foward to it!”

 

Rie Kugimiya (Kagura): “The movie is official, and information about it has been released. I always wondered if we’d do it [again] someday, so now I can get a grip on reality. I want to look forward to it with everything I’ve got, and I want to work hard! Please be patient and wait for us!”

 

Will it be an original story, or be taken from the manga series? These details have yet to be unveiled, so we look forward to hearing more information. Watch this space.
