Two anime adaptations of Weekly Shonen Jump! manga will be ending their year-long runs later this month, and they are Gintama (2015) and World Trigger.

During the Gintama event, “Gintama Haru Matsuri 2016,” the anime’s cast, which included Yorozuya members, Tomokazu Sugita (Gintoki), Daisuke Sakaguchi (Shipnachi), and Rie Kugimiya (Kagura), as well as theme song performers BLUE ENCOUN, Negoto, CHiCO with HoneyWorks, THREE LIGHT DOWN KING, and DOES, all gathered at the  Ryougoku Kokugikan sumo hall last weekend to celebrate 10 years of the Gintama anime. However, the cast announced that the current anime adaptation, which was launched back in April 2015, will be ending later this month.


No word on whether the Gintama anime will be coming back for a new run. However, the news comes as mangaka Hideaki Sorachi announced that the original Gintama manga will be entering its final arc later this year.

Meanwhile, another Shonen Jump anime is ending this month, and that would be World Trigger, which made its premiere back in October 2014. The anime is aired during the 6:30 am programming bloc, however, TV Asahi has announced that the anime bloc will be replaced with a sports program. World Trigger will be the final anime in that programming bloc.


The anime adaptation is currently in an original anime story arc/ filler arc called the Fugitive Arc, and the anime’s main story has now caught up to the manga’s story. With the anime’s story still having many questions left unanswered, many fans are hoping for a new run to continue the story in the future.
