The Gintama manga by Hideaki Sorachi, tells the story of a samurai named Gintoki Sakata who runs an odd jobs service after the fall of the shogunate by a group of aliens. Together with his friends Shinpachi and Kagura, they encounter many weird things and situations in order to survive in the alternate history version of Edo. The manga was first adapted into an anime television series in 2006 by studio Sunrise before moving to Bandai Namco Pictures in 2015.
The latest film, originally titled Gintama The Final will be the closure of the Gintama series. It first screened in Japan on 8 January 2021 and adapts the final chapters of the manga, with extra materials added in. The manga itself has finished its serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump back in 2019.
