It seems that we will be saying goodbye to a lot of beloved characters soon, as Gintama mangaka, Hideaki Sorachi has made an important announcement with the release of the 63rd volume of his Gintama manga, as he announced that his manga will be entering the final arc in 2016.
During last year’s Jump Festa event, the mangaka has said that he has been receiving several letters after he announced that he plans to begin the final arc this year. He said he wanted to clarify what he said during that event and confirmed that the final arc will indeed begin within this year.
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. More details on when the manga will finally end, will be announced in the days ahead.
