Eleven Arts announces details for dubbed and subbed theatrical release
Last month saw the reveal of Eleven Arts' plans to release the Gintama THE FINAL anime film in North America as Gintama THE VERY FINAL. Now we have a date, so look forward to catching the "final" (seriously, they swear!) big screen entry in the series on November 21 and 22.
Gintama THE VERY FINAL will be screening in English dubbed form and in Japanese with English subtitles, and tickets will be available via Fathom Events.
Chizuru Miyawaki directs and writes the latest film based on Hideaki Sorachi's manga, with animation production by Bandai Namco Pictures. The English dub cast is TBA. Here's who's playing who in the original:
Tomokazu Sugita as Gintoki Sakata
Daisuke Sakaguchi as Shinpachi Shimura
Rie Kugimiya as Kagura
Koichi Yamadera as Utusuro/Shoyo Yoshida
Takehito Koyasu as Shinsuke Takasugi
Akira Ishida as Kotaro Katsura
Susumu Chiba as Isao Kondo
Kazuya Nakai as Toshiro Hijikata
Kenichi Suzumura as Sogo Okita
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, Shoyo. 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?!
The final Gintama movie opened in Japanese cinemas on January 8, 2021.
