Gintama THE VERY FINAL Confirms North American Release Date!

Eleven Arts has announced that comedy anime film Gintama: The Final is set to premiere in North American theaters on November 21 (dubbed) and 22 (subbed)!

The film will be screened under the title Gintama THE VERY FINAL. Tickets are available to the general public from October 8 at Fathom Events.

Eleven Arts describes the film's plot as follows:

"This is the actual ending.

The countdown to destruction has begun! All will join to reclaim an Edo in grave peril! Earth is facing its darkest days, and the members of the Odd Jobs must come together to save it from an otherworldly menace.

Old allies Gintoki, Takasugi, and Katsura strive their hardest for their own ideals, but standing in their way is someone with whom they share a sad history: Utsuro, an alternate personality of their former teacher and mentor, Shoyu. Having been spawned by Altana, the energy that fuels all planets, this immortal fiend has regenerated multiple times until finally becoming Utsuro, the ultimate enemy... And he intends to take down the entire world in order to end his own life.

Gintoki and the others set out to fulfill the wishes of their teacher Shoyo and thwart Utsuro's plans. Shinpachi, Kagura, the Shinsengumi, members of the Kabuki District, and even former enemies will join their fight.

As Utsuro's power grows, Takasugi fights for his very life. Will Gintoki be able to put an end to all this?!"

Originally a comedy manga by Hideaki Sorachi, the Gintama franchise includes a TV anime series spanning over 300 episodes, as well as anime and live-action films.

Billed as the series' "final" finale, Gintama: The Final hit theaters in Japan on January 8, 2021.
