Gintama is like the One Piece of samurai anime

Hopefully this means the anime continues although I am not sure how considering where it's currently going, it really does look like the end.

This is great news.

It would have been sad if the manga ended already.

I knew the manga will keep going.

I wonder will they find the One Piece--

Whoops, wrong reference.

That's great since I find most time I like shows/manga that never ends.

Hah. It's just like Sorachi to backpedal and monkey around with Jump like that, but kudos to him for wanting to end it right, even if it costs him his position in the most popular manga publication. Kudos to Shueisha/Jump as well for having enough faith and love for the manga to allow it to continue in one of its spin-off magazines, but I guess it's not like it isn't going to continue to make them money. Given its popularity, I am a little surprised they can't just extend its stay in Jump, but I guess the prestige surrounding that particular magazine is such that it probably makes the rules particularly inflexible.
