“Final Chapter” of the Gintama Manga to Launch on June 17, 2019

Shueisha has announced that the “final chapter” of Hideaki Sorachi’s Gintama manga will launch on the official Gintama app on June 17, 2019.

This year’s 26th issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump had actually announced that the chapter will launch on June 10, 2019, but Shueisha posted on Twitter later the same day that due to “various circumstances” the chapter will launch on June 17, 2019 instead. The same misprint will be in the upcoming 27th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump.

The manga’s “last fanbook” will ship in Summer 2019. The magazine also stated that the manga’s “final volume” is “planned” for a simultaneous release with the fanbook.

Gintama Manga to Move to Jump Giga Magazine

This year’s 42nd issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine has announced that Hideaki Sorachi’s Gintama manga will end its serialization in the magazine as previously announced, but that it will continue on in Shueisha’s Jump Giga magazine starting in its winter issue for “a little while longer.”

Sorachi explained that he had actually been planning to end the manga for some time. He noted that Weekly Shonen Jump has a system where an author informs the editorial department that the author wants to end the manga about half a year before the ending, and then works toward that ending with the remaining time. But Sorachi said that he had been delaying the end for a while, before declaring that he would make it to the ending by August 2018. However, Sorachi then explained that he needed a bigger page count to reach the ending, and that the page count for the weekly magazine was not enough. In the end, he apologized to the readers who “just skim over Jump,” and for not ending the manga in the magazine.

Sorachi began Gintama in 2004, and the manga has more than 55 million copies in print in Japan as of February 2018. VIZ Media published the first 23 volumes in English. Shueisha published the manga’s 74th volume on August 3, 2018.
