After having announced the news of the return to airplay date of Gintama and not being sure if there will be new episodes of the show or not, I am more than happy to announce that there will be new Gintama episodes when the anime returns this October 4. There will also be some reruns, but as a whole we are expecting a whole new adaptation of the unadapted manga chapters.
The epitome of comedy anime is going to be shown weekly – on Thursdays at 6:00 p.m. local time. Yes, this time slot is currently being occupied by Sket Dance, but we do know that the two anime often criss-cross, so there will probably be no issues with the change. While there will be the so-called “Yorinuki Gintama-san” (reruns), new episodes will also be shown.
With the usual suspects back in the staff and cast teams, we cannot expect anything but the great anime we’re used to seeing.
Is this great news or not-so-great? What do you think? Comment below.
