On the official Twitter account for the multimedia franchise based on the Gintama manga, a special illustration was posted for the Blu-ray / DVD version of the movie Gintama: The Final, the film production that ended the animated franchise. This launch is scheduled for next August 4 in Japan, and its premiere on distribution platforms in the West is expected on the same date, if there is an agreement.

Specifically, the film covers chapters 699-704 of the original manga, with original material added. A two-episode special project, titled Gintama: The Semi-Final, featured a prequel story to this feature film and aired in Japan on January 15 and 20.
- Chizuru Miyawaki was in charge of directing the feature film at Bandai Namco Pictures Studios, as well as writing and supervising the scripts.
- Youichi Fujita took over the supervision of the direction.
The “Amanto”, aliens from outer space who have invaded Earth and completely taken over Feudal Japan. As a result, a ban on the use of swords was established, and samurai in Japan are treated with contempt as a result.
However, one man, Gintoki Sakata, still possesses the heart of a samurai, although for his love of sweets and his work at the Yorozuya (a shop that makes anything), one would not expect it of him. Accompanied in his work by Shinpachi Shimura, a boy with glasses and a big heart; Kagura, a girl with an umbrella and a bottomless stomach; and for his pet Sadaharu, a huge dog. Of course, these strange jobs are not always easy, sometimes you have problems with the police, with the rebels or with murderers, leading them to unfortunate but funny situations.
