Following the smash success of the three-night theatrical engagement prior to Thanksgiving that wound up trending on Twitter, Home video distributor Shout! Factory has detailed the forthcoming home video release for Gintama THE VERY FINAL.
The above BD/DVD Combo will also include the English dub and the Japanese dub with English subtitles and a bundled exclusive 16-page booklet packed with character art and storyboards that will be released on February 8th, 2022 with pre-orders available now directly from Shout! Factory online. For those that pre-order, an exclusive poster will also be bundled while supplies last. For those that can't wait until then, the Digital version will be released on January 25th on all major VOD platforms with pricing yet to be determined. Eleven Arts describes the film:
Everything I've wanted to protect is right here with me in spirit.
The countdown to destruction has begun! All will join to reclaim an Edo in grave peril!
The Earth is facing its darkest days, and the members of the Odd Jobs must come together to save it from this 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 Earth 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. What does Gintoki, battered and bruised, see at the very end?
Will he be able to put an end to all this?!
