Posted 2/20/09 , edited 2/20/09
With much love, Gintama has confirmed its 4th season.

The sponsor credits screen for episode 145 of the Gintama anime series has announced on Thursday evening that production on a fourth year has been green-lit. The message also offered an apology with the announcement. The current director, Yoichi Fujita, had indicated in the February issue of Tokuma Shoten's Animage magazine last month that he will not be working on the series this spring.

The Gintama action comedy follows a quirky samurai in an alternate-history Japan, where aliens overlords have banned sword-carrying. While the Gintama anime's storyline has been gradually catching up with the storyline of Hideaki Sorachi's original manga, the animation studio Sunrise had not officially announced until now if the anime would end. Viz Media published the 10th volume of the manga last month, which is also when the Crunchyroll website began streaming the anime episodes the same day they aired in Japan.

Update: Sunrise has confirmed the anime's fourth year on its website on Thursday.

Okay, that's enough of that. XD It was so weird to hear the fans sentiments from the characters mouths. I mean, it was all very logical speculation, but at the same time, it makes you wonder if Sunrise has spies lurking about the internets. >.>

And "Stop buying the DVD's!" XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD Damn, Gin-san, your show's selling too well eh? XD

There would be a possibility that the 4th season will have fillers to allow the manga to catch up. If you notice Episode 145 had describe the situation with arrows.

well most gintama episodes, like more than 70% probably, are fillers anyway, but that doesnt matter since this show has always been the best.
Anyway this has been one of the few greatest news of 2009, considering economy crisis and all.

Wow, that's really great news I thought it was going to end for sure after seeing 144.

Completely wrong. Gintama has 2 fillers from episode 1-49 (ep 1 and 2), 3.5 fillers from 50-99 (50, 57, 75, 82A), and 7 (inc. 2 half)1 from 100-current. (106, 111A, 114, 120A, 124, 125, 135, 137)... For a total of 12.5 filler episodes from 145 episodes... That would have to be one of the lowest filler ratios for animes with over 100 eps...

That being said, some of the content inside other episodes is filler based material (Not sure for the early episodes, but for those around the 120s this is usually 2 minutes or less in arcs, and around 3-7 minutes in non arcs.) However, this does not excuse the the fact it was based around what was from the manga (In no way am I saying other fillers are bad.)

With the thing about the 'paths' at the start of 145, theres a good possibility they are going to try something different... One possibility MAY be a Ginpachi-sensei arc, using the Ginpachi-sensei light novels, if they have not already been used (I assume these light novels have at least some different material then whats already been shown).


A series of light novels featuring the Gin Tama characters transposed to a school setting is running in Jump Square under the title 3-Nen Z-Gumi GinPachi-sensei. The novel is based on his Akamaru Jump entry.

For fillers, there are some small filler parts in some original manga episodes. Example like Jackie Chan as Dragon Commander in the anime, while the manga doesn't show him at all. The naked Orihime as the goddess. The fillers still entertain us in some way.

Some fillers revive some funny moments or items like using the Neo Armstrong Cyclone Jet Armstrong Cannon. There is a filler episode where Justatank was attached with that weapon which made it look very epic. Muu san's "Fuck the Police" incident, Santa Claus episode was continued with a begger Santa and Rich Reindeer as a filler episode.

Of course there are other nice fillers, but what I want to say that I dun mind fillers as long as they entertain us in a humorous way.
