Ah yes, the final film must always have the biggest explosions.

Some of you might be wondering about this Gintama: The Very Final anime film, and what it’s about? Well, to put it simply, it’s the film that will give the anime series a very final ending. More final than the last final film: Gintama: The Movie: The Final Chapter: Be Forever Yorozuya. It’s as final as you can get without killing everyone, and I’m not even sure about that.

Nah, the main character can’t die. Can they?

The official synopsis from Fathom Events gives more details about the plot of Gintama: The Very Final below:

“As Earth faces its darkest days, the members of the Odd Jobs must come together to save it from an otherworldly menace. While old allies Gintoki, Takasugi, and Katsura strive their hardest for their own ideals, standing in their way is someone with whom they share a sad history: Utsuro, an alternate personality of their former teacher and mentor, Shoyu. Having been spawned by Altana, the energy that fuels all planets, this immortal fiend has regenerated multiple times until finally becoming Utsuro, the ultimate enemy… and he intends to take down the entire world in order to end his own life. Gintoki and the others must now set out to fulfill the wishes of their teacher Shoyo and thwart Utsuro’s plans. As Utsuro’s power grows and Takasugi battles for his very life, Shinpachi, Kagura, the Shinsengumi, members of the Kabuki District, and even former enemies will join their fight.”
