Via Comic Natalie: a new key visual drawn by author Hideaki Sorachi has been unveiled for the final animated feature-film adaptation of “Gintama”! “Gintama THE FINAL” will be released in Japanese cinemas 8th January 2021, and is a completely new work produced with the full cooperation of its original author.

The new key visual features 34 of the series’ most beloved characters — including *gasp!* a possible reveal of Elizabeth’s true identity! We’ll have to wait and see if this comes to any fruition, or if it’s another one of Sorachi’s famous misdirections and red herrings.

“Gintama THE FINAL” was first teased during the “Gintama Shirogane Matsuri (Kari)” event in March 2019; the manga’s 77th and final volume’s wrap-around jacket further revealed that it would be getting a 2021 playdate.
