The cover of the upcoming 43rd issue of Weekly Shounen Jump has revealed that a new TV season for the Gintama franchise is planned. It also mentions that the manga is in its final climax. The magazine will be released on September 26, 2016.

Hideaki Sorachi's manga Gintama began publication in Weekly Shounen Jump in December 2003, and its 65th volume was just released on August 4. Japan's Yearly Manga Rankings placed Gintama at 17th for the first half of 2016, selling 1,468,890 copies.

Gintama received its first TV anime series in Spring 2006, and then three following TV anime adaptations, for a total of 316 episodes. Various movies, OVA episodes, and specials have also been produced for the franchise. A live-action adaptation was recently announced, and is slated to release in 2017.

Gintama. was the best season I've watched so far. Although all seasons are the best but Gintama. is exceptional. Though I just hope it won't be the last season I'll be watching Gintama........ I am excited with the release of LA too

Wtf its winter 2017? I was thinking spring or summer of 2017. Thought they would let the manga end first, but I guess they really want the manga sales boost. The rating shit storm is going to happen sooner than expected.
It's more common to time something like this so that the anime version ends shortly after the manga ends. Not that it starts shortly after the manga ends

It's more efficient in terms of sales that way

Could they hurry up already? Is there any information during which season or half of year it will be airing?

Nov 13, 2016 3:45 PM by SpaghettiSpike

Looking forward to the new and probably the final season. If not included in the series I hope the skipped arcs will be in OVA.
