Gintama: The Very Final has revealed the English dub cast for the anime's final movie outing! Hideaki Sorachi's original manga series might have finally come to an end sometime ago (after some hilarious fake-out ending gags, of course), but the franchise got to celebrate with one more major goodbye in the form of a special feature film outing. This final movie opened in Japan earlier this year and was so successful that it even managed to top Demon Slayer: Mugen Train's box office takeover for a short time. Now it's heading to North America!
Eleven Arts previously confirmed that they have licensed the film for an official English release, and are preparing to screen it in theaters later this Fall. Before it hits everywhere else, the English dub version of the movie will be debuting at New York Comic Con on October 9th for the select fans in attendance. To celebrate this impending premiere, Eleven Arts has revealed the cast behind Gintama: The Very Final's English dub. Directed by Kyle Colby Jones, the dub cast features some returning faces from the prior English dub release.

Eleven Arts describes the film as such, "This is the actual ending. The countdown to destruction has begun! All will join to reclaim an Edo in grave peril! Earth is facing its darkest days, and the members of the Odd Jobs must come together to save it from an otherworldly menace. Old allies Gintoki, Takasugi, and Katsura strive their hardest for their own ideals, but standing in their way is someone with whom they share a sad history: Utsuro, an alternate personality of their former teacher and mentor, Shoyu.
Having been spawned by Altana, the energy that fuels all planets, this immortal fiend has regenerated multiple times until finally becoming Utsuro, the ultimate enemy... And he intends to take down the entire world in order to end his own life. Gintoki and the others set out to fulfill the wishes of their teacher Shoyo and thwart Utsuro's plans. Shinpachi, Kagura, the Shinsengumi, members of the Kabuki District, and even former enemies will join their fight. As Utsuro's power grows, Takasugi fights for his very life. Will Gintoki be able to put an end to all this?!"
