The official website of Gintama has unveiled that the anime will resume with a new season beginning with the "Porori Arc." This year's August issue of Animedia magazine, to be released on July 10, features the anime in its cover and will also reveal the announcement. The main cast of the anime will reprise their roles and Chizuru Miyawaki will continue to direct the series. It is scheduled to broadcast in October of this year.

Gintama is written by Hideaki Sorachi and has been serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shounen Jump magazine since December 2003. The manga has received 68 compiled manga volumes, with the 69th to be released on July 4.

The first season of Gintama aired in Spring 2006, followed by four TV anime adaptations, for a total of 328 episodes. The recent season aired in Winter 2017. The series has also received multiple OVA, special, and movie adaptations. The live-action adaptation will screen in Japanese theaters on July 14, followed by screenings shown in various parts of Asia.

Season 2 won't be good anymore...rip(new staff)

and Nope, when someone actually gives good Constructive Criticism(like the 8/10's on the 2015 animes or the 7/10's on the 2017 anime or the manga on Mal) why they don't like Gintama they don't get hate from the fans(not counting the Bad Apples, because lets be honest every fanbase has bad apples), and you many not think anything special about it doesn't change the fact that lot's of people do that aren't hardcore fans(like GranttheThief, Grex, or Proffessoranime), and nope your wrong about it one sided...people literally make accounts give it a 1 and put in the drop box for the 2015 Gintama season(just so they can lower the score)


Hm... I'm actually kind of curious, but why do so many people love Gintama so much? What makes it stand out from other shounen? I can definitely see FMA:B fans making alt accounts to do that, though, so I'm not trying to isolate a particular side.
If you have the time, I recommend reading this Thread of comments(this guy just finished Episode 247, and he explains why he likes it so much right now), But Personally I like it because of the characters and the crazy world and structure of the series, and how the Comedy can just be their for just a laugh...or it's their to discuss a theme...or to introduce a new character or set a up a plot point in a Serious Arcs down the line, I like seeing the characters whether is in it's a Drama, Comedy, Serious Arc, or Semi-serious arc, and even though the Fights are not that comment...but when they do happen they're badass and don't Drag on and on, and the Final Arc is going on in the Manga right now and it's so satisfying and if the Author isn't rushed I can see this series having a satisfying ending like Rurouni Kenshin or Fullmetal Alchemist https://twitter.com/grantthethief/status/909995762494459905

The fact that you called it "Gaytama" already shows your maturity, and no people who rate it lower than a 9 don't get called out...Makenshi Critques(who reviewed Gintama)) only gave it a 7 or 8, and all the fans loved his review(same for Grex), the only people that get mad about the Mal Rankings is the people who see Gintama in the Top 10 everywhere(look at Reddit or the Forums here)

...and One Punch Man is most likely not a one trick pony(especially if we get a Season 3 and 4 in a couple years), since the arcs starting on Monster Association...made the series better and better as it went

And those people are right to get mad because of how overblown the fanbase makes Gintama. There's literally nothing special about it, just a hivemind group that stoops to mockery and bully tactics if something unfavorable is said about it. So a couple of people made two reviews that resonated well with the fans, that's great; doesn't change the fact that other people get shamed or, worse, attacked for putting out lower scores. Then there's the whole grudge match over the latest season trying to stay in the top 2, fanboys making alt accounts to drop Your Name out of its rightful place (the lulz). Absolutely pathetic how far these radical fans go to preserve an average shounen. (Note: You don't seem to be part of that camp, so that's cool)

On the other hand, One Punch Man S1 by and large showcases Saitama to be a one trick pony; that is, someone with no weakness, no personality, no consistency, yet he can stop everything in one go. That's why I'm hoping that S2 can at least give him some sort of goal instead of this "hurr durr am strong fite me" nonsense. Give him a reason to show personality like Deku from Boku no Hero Academia.

The only salty thing here is how you fangurls whine and clamor together every time a different series outranks your pwecious Gaytama. The quality of the series isn't the issue here, it's how the fanbase acts superior and sticks their noses in the air, and that's why nobody else can stand seeing it in the top 10. Or top 25. Or top 50. All that you're doing is pushing back even better shows just to make this trash heap look golden. Heck, I bet that half of you even got together to put One Trick Pony and Mushitshow right behind it just because the protags are like Gintoki (ya know, bland, sarcastic dweebs with no sense of personality).

And let's not forget to mention the private bullying and correctiveness towards anyone who ranks it lower than a 9. Don't be so quick to judge how others view this show, instead look at your own personal actions because those affect other fans. It's just an anime, not some glorified competition where you win a special prize at the end.

And Matsuraida is in the One Shit with Nobume vs Sasaki, Soyo is in Kagura's Boyfriend, Tama and Gengai is in the Video Game One Shot, but what about Otose?
Otose had a panel in the Guardian Spirits arc (chapter 499).

I also saw that she is in the Video Game One Shot, so I guess every character in the Key Visual is in the Skipped Chapters(btw Gengai isn't in the Key Visual or the Skipper Chapters, idk why I mentioned him)

I won't be surprised if there are gonna be reruns since they were talking about that. But still I want to see the skipped arcs animated before the Silver Soul arc.

It's true, but I think they'll cheer them up. well what I'm sure is that kagura's boyfriend bow was officially confirmed after the release of drafts of the episode.
