During the Gintama Ato no Matsuri event, an exciting announcement was made that Tomohito Ōsaki’s spinoff novel series, “3-Nen Z-Gumi Ginpachi-Sensei” (Class 3-Z’s Teacher Ginpachi), based on Hideaki Sorachi’s renowned Gintama manga, will be receiving its own anime adaptation. This delightful spinoff takes place in Gintama High School and revolves around the peculiar school teacher Ginpachi Sakata, despite his unorthodox personality and appearance, as he interacts with his students. The series first made its debut back in 2006, capturing the hearts of fans. Shueisha published the latest volume in the novel series in 2018, showcasing the enduring popularity of this unique spinoff. It’s important to note that Sorachi, the creator of the original Gintama manga, is credited for the original work, ensuring a seamless continuation of the Gintama universe.
Notably, “3-Nen Z-Gumi Ginpachi-Sensei” has been previously animated as shorts, adding a touch of whimsy to several Gintama anime episodes. These short adaptations have further increased the anticipation for the full-fledged anime adaptation of this beloved spinoff.
Gintama itself is an exceptional “science-fiction period-drama comedy” manga that first captivated readers in 2003, and its thrilling journey concluded in June 2019, having achieved a remarkable circulation of over 55 million copies. The manga has been the inspiration behind several television anime series, totaling a staggering 367 episodes, as well as three previous anime films. The most recent anime series premiered in July 2018, and its success has been a testament to the enduring popularity of the Gintama franchise. Additionally, the manga has also spawned various original video animations (OVAs), event anime, two live-action films, and two live-action net spinoffs, showcasing its diverse and expansive reach across different mediums.
Gintama’s wide-ranging appeal extends beyond Japan, as its international fan base eagerly awaits new developments in the franchise. Viz Media, a renowned English publisher, has contributed to the manga’s global reach by releasing the first 23 volumes in English, allowing a wider audience to experience the unique and captivating world of Gintama.
Furthermore, Gintama’s popularity soared to new heights with the release of “Gintama THE VERY FINAL,” the third and final anime film based on the manga’s conclusion. This film, which combined elements from the original manga’s finale with new story elements, premiered in Japan in January 2021, captivating fans with its thrilling conclusion and ensuring that the Gintama legacy lives on.
