Rock band DOES performs 2 insert songs for January 8 film

The official website for Gintama The Final, the new anime film of Hideaki Sorachi's Gintama manga, posted a new trailer for the film on Tuesday. The video reveals and previews the film's new insert song by the rock band DOES, titled "Dōraku Shinjō" (Wholheartedly Indulgent), and also previews the film's theme song "Wadachi" (Tracks) by the band SPYAIR.

Participating theaters will hand out an exclusive Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba illustration card of Tanjirō and the Hashira, as drawn by Sorachi, to Gintama The Final audience members in the film's first week of screenings. (The anime's website plans to reveal more details on the card later.) Theaters plan to hand out a new bonus to audience members every week.

DOES will also have a second insert song in the film titled "Breakdown."

The film opens in Japan on January 8. The film is billed as "the finale, for real this time." The film will be based on the finale of the original manga, combined with new story elements.

The manga is also inspiring a new net anime special with a story that will tie into the film. The net anime will premiere exclusively in Japan on the online dTV service on January 15. The film will also have a novel by Mirei Miyamoto that will ship on January 8.

Sorachi's original "science-fiction period-drama comedy" manga began in 2003 and ended in June 2019 with over 55 million copies in circulation. The manga has inspired several television anime series, as well as two previous anime films. The latest anime series premiered in July 2018. Crunchyroll is streaming all the television anime with English subtitles. The manga has also inspired various original video anime (OVA), event anime, two live-action films, and two live-action net spinoffs. Viz Media published the manga's first 23 volumes in English.

The first 49 episodes of the first television series began streaming on Hulu with a new English dub in December. Sentai Filmworks released the anime's first 49 episodes on DVD in 2010 and 2011, but that release did not include an English dub.
