The problem with this season is, that there are too many big sequels. I'm generally not a fan over overhyped anime; the loud noises made around them dull the senses and people just vote it high, just because. But even with sequels to absolutely good shows, it is hard to keep track with that many good shows. Many, especially the ones that weren't recently having a season, like Log Horizon, will fail to gain enough leftover attraction to get enough views. It's a shame, because there are some gems in it and even some movies that will not see much of the showlights. (But I still don't get why Princess Principal needs 4 movies as sequels)

Nah, Gintama is only popular in Japan. It isn't a franchise like Naruto, Bleach, Demon Slayer or One Piece in popularity terms. But again, yes, i can see Gintoki saying in 4 or 5 years "Since Gintama has ended some time ago, now we going to start Gintama: Next Generation Z... Or something like that".[/quote]

Is there enough romance in Gintam to make a sequel about a new generation?[/quote]

It's more like a parody of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations and Dragon Ball Z Saiyaman arc, which is something Gintama always do (Copy and make a satire of it).

Technically, it is very likely that one day they'll throw a sequel. Plenty of franchises made enough money to the point studios and committees pressured the authors to continue for some extra $$$.

That's why we had shit like DBS, Boruto and so on.
That's also why Fairy Tail has manga continuation, Seven Deadly Sins has another manga, and heck, immediately when Chainsaw Man ended they announced another part that would continue the current one.

Money plays a huge role for any series, and if they offer said author enough, doubt they'd say no :)

Keep in mind, I am not a Gintama fan, nor do I care whether they continue the series or not, however, it is VERY likely for it to continue one day due to popularity, money and so on.

Hah, some people are still in denial and believe that after a while the authors will again announce a sequel.

Do you think Boruto exists primarily because the author and / or Jump did not want to lose such a money-making franchise?


Yes. Kishimoto was completely burnt out and finished his manga earlier than anticipated because he felt like he wants a break. That's why he suddenly took over Boruto years after it was created.


Hmm. I very quickly drop this anime, but some of my friends complained that it is essentially the same Naruto, only with a slightly updated cast.
