Gintama has been quiet as of late since its manga came to an end, but the franchise still has more to offer fans. The series has been working behind-the-scenes on its final feature film. And thanks to a recent poster, fans are getting hyped for the movie after Gintama's creator weighed in on it.
Recently, a new poster for Gintama's final movie went live in Japan. The colorful key art focuses on the entire cast, and that is because creator Hideaki Sorachii penned the poster. There is no one in the world who know Gintama better than this guy, so you can see why it was best for Sorachi to pen this farewell poster.
Of course, few details are known about Gintama: The Final Movie at this point. The team behind the film has been rather quiet about its story, so fans should expect the unexpected here. After all, this is Gintama we are talking about!
