Shueisha Confirms Gintama Manga Will End in 77th Volume
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The manga ended its run in Weekly Shonen Jump in last year's 42nd issue on September 15 as planned, but Shueisha announced on September 15 that the manga would continue "for a little while longer" in Shueisha's Jump Giga magazine. The manga's run in Jump Giga launched with a 54-page chapter in the magazine's first winter issue on December 28. Gintama will run in Jump Giga for three consecutive issues (there will be two more "winter" issues published in January and February). The manga will feature on the covers of all three of those issues.
The manga has inspired several anime series including the latest one that started airing last July, two anime films, various OVAs and event anime, two live-action films, and two live-action net spinoff series.
