Gintama, the popular sci-fi comedy anime, is set to make a comeback with an all-new spin-off series, according to series creator Hideaki Sorachi. The new anime, titled “Gintama: 3-nen Z-gumi Ginpachi-sensei,” recently shared its first trailer-poster combo, and it looks like it will be just as chaotic and hilarious as the original series.
The trailer for the new spin-off shows Ginpachi, the protagonist of the series, parodying popular anime titles like Jujutsu Kaisen and Spy x Family. The anime fandom is excited to see Gintoki back in action, and it looks like the new series will skewer the industry’s latest wave of hits.
The poster for the new anime features Ginpachi, wearing a pair of glasses and a white overcoat with a bored expression. The spin-off is set in a world where Ginpachi teaches high school students, but he hardly has the disposition to mold their young minds. While there is no release window for the new anime, BN Pictures will head up animation on the series, and it will likely reference inside jokes from Sorachi’s original series.
For those unfamiliar with Gintama, the new spin-off will not require a lot of prerequisite knowledge, but it will reference inside jokes from the original series. Gintama originally premiered in December 2003 and came to a close in 2019 after a prolonged finale. Since then, it has spawned numerous projects, including TV series, live-action adaptations, and light novels.
The original series takes place in a world where aliens have invaded Edo Period Japan, and skyscrapers, trains, and motorbikes have replaced the simple life of Earth inhabitants. The main protagonist, Gintoki Sakata, also known as Yorozuya Gin-san, carries the soul of a samurai and is ready to take on any challenge with his fellow companions. The series is known for its humor, action, and emotional moments, and it has become a fan favorite among anime enthusiasts.
In conclusion, fans of the original Gintama series can look forward to the new spin-off, “Gintama: 3-nen Z-gumi Ginpachi-sensei,” which promises to be just as hilarious and chaotic as the original series. While there is no release window yet, fans can rest assured that BN Pictures will deliver a quality animation that captures the essence of Sorachi’s original vision.
