Bandai's Megastore has begun teasing a figure of Ginko Sakata, the gender-swapped version of Gintama's lead as seen in volume 50 of the manga's and last anime season's "Dekoboko" story. The release from their female-audience focused GEM line will include a mini-version of X-ko Hijikata, the gender-swapped version of popular Shinsengumi rival Toshiro.
Next week's Shonen Jump 2015 issue is set to regrettably inform readers that Gintama's Hideaki Sorachi-sensei got a bad banana and will consequently be absent from that issue of the manga magazine, as well as the subsequent one as he recovers from his illness. The alt-history sci-fi comedy aims to return in October 19th's issue 47. More after the jump.
