Sunrise's official website for the Gintama' anime updated its top page on Tuesday, replacing Gintoki with the "new protagonist" Kintoki. The website also changed the logo of the show to "Kintama." The site posted a new profile for Kintoki, which lists his voice actor as Yūichi Nakamura (Psychic Squad's Minamoto, Shugo Chara's Ikuto). The original protagonist Gintoki Sakata's entire existence has been erased from the website — foreshadowing the Kintoki story arc.
The "final" episode of the last broadcast in March had shown a preview of Kintoki's appearance, and new Gintama' anime episodes were announced in August. Crunchyroll will stream the new episodes into several countries as they air in Japan.
