One does not simply drop a season of Gintama, Enchousen was amazing.

Given Sunrise still hasn't done an adaptation of anything since Binbougami Ga in Spring 2012 I'd say an OVA is likely all that's gonna happen for now.

Great news!

The ANN article mentions that this is an unaired TV episode, which makes me think this will be an adaptation of chapter 312, which is the only one of the older chapters that never got animated. It seems the picture featured in the OVA announcement page is even the same as the first page of chapter 312.



Edit: It seems a scene from chapter 312 was showcased in the 2011 Gintama' official trailer, but the episode never aired.
