Gintama THE VERY FINAL:
Everything I wanted to protect is here with me in spirit.
The countdown to destruction has begun! All will join to recover an Edo in great danger!
Earth faces its darkest days, and members of Odd Jobs must unite to save it from this otherworldly threat. Old allies Gintoki, Takasugi, and Katsura do their best to achieve their own ideals, but stands in their way a person with whom they share a sad story: Utsuro, an alternate personality of their former teacher and mentor Shoyo. Having been begotten by Altana, the energy that powers all the planets, this immortal demon has regenerated several times until finally becoming Utsuro, the ultimate enemy … and he intends to destroy the entire Earth in order to to end his own life.
Gintoki and the others set out to make their teacher Shoyo’s wishes come true and thwart Utsuro’s plans. Shinpachi, Kagura, the Shinsengumi, members of the Kabuki district and even former enemies will join their fight. As Utsuro’s power grows, Takasugi fights for his life. What does Gintoki see, bruised and bruised, at the very end? Will he be able to put an end to all this?
