The first 2019 issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that Hideaki Sorachi's Gintama manga will start its run in the Jump Giga magazine in its winter issue on December 28. The manga will have a 52-page chapter including a color page. Jump Giga will publish the manga in three consecutive issues, and the manga will feature on the covers of all three of those issues.
The manga ended its run in Weekly Shonen Jump in its 42nd issue on September 15 as planned, but Shueisha announced on September 15 that the manga would continue "for a little while longer" in Jump Giga.
Sorachi began the manga in 2004, and the manga has more than 55 million copies in print in Japan as of February. Viz Media published the first 23 volumes in English. Shueisha published the manga's 75th compiled volume (pictured at right) on October 4.
The manga has inspired several anime series including the latest one that started airing in July, two anime films, various OVAs and event anime, two live-action films, and two live-action net spinoff series.
