So, it looks like Gintama mangaka Hideaki Sorachi ain’t trolling us when he said that his manga is ending soon. This is because Weekly Shounen Jump magazine’s 38th issue revealed that it’s ending in five more chapters. The announcement also revealed that if there are no delays, the manga will end on September 24, 2018.
The manga entered the current Silver Soul Arc, which is also its final arc, back in 2016. Sorachi first made the announcement in 2016 as well, and it sent shock waves to the fandom. Of course, many people thought he was trolling fans again, but this new announcement confirms he wasn’t.
The comedy manga has been known to break the 4th wall and parody several other anime and mangas, and has gotten a surprisingly large female fan following. The manga has won plenty of awards, and has also received plenty of anime adaptations, as well as an anime film and two live-action films.
