Shout! Factory and Eleven Arts have announced that Gintama THE VERY FINAL is coming to Blu Ray and DVD on February 22nd. A digital version will be available on January 25th. Fans who order it from Shout! Factory directly will recieve an exclusive poster! This release will also include an exclusive 16-page booklet with character art and storyboards.
Directed by Chizuru Miyawaki, Gintama THE VERY FINAL adapts some of the final moments of the original manga with new elements specifically crafted for the film. For the North American audiences and loyal fans, the lead roles of the Odd Jobs members are reprised by the exciting team of voice talent from Gintama Season 3, including Michael Daingerfield (InuYasha: The Final Act, NANA) as Gintoki Sakata, Cole Howard (Cardfight!! Vanguard, Arashi of Zoids Wild) as Shinpachi Shumura, and Jocelyne Loewen (The Vision of Escaflowne, Galaxy Angel) as Kagura. Kyle Colby Jones (Dororo, Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma), who voiced the character Shinsuke Takasugi, and the ADR writer and director for Gintama: The Movie, reprises his roles for Gintama THE VERY FINAL.
The Earth is facing its darkest days, and the members of the Odd Jobs must come together to save it from this otherworldly menace. Old allies Gintoki, Takasugi, and Katsura strive their hardest for their own ideals, but standing in their way is someone with whom they share a sad history: Utsuro, an alternate personality of their former teacher and mentor Shoyo. 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 Earth in order to end his own life.
Gintoki and the others set out to fulfill the wishes of their teacher Shoyo and thwart Utsuro’s plans. Shinpachi, Kagura, the Shinsengumi, members of the Kabuki District, and even former enemies will join their fight. As Utsuro’s power grows, Takasugi fights for his very life. What does Gintoki, battered and bruised, see at the very end?
Will he be able to put an end to all this?!
