Anime celebrates 10th anniversary this year
The staff of the Gintama anime confirmed during the “Gintama Haru Matsuri 2016” event on Sunday that the currently running Gintama anime will end this month.
The anime is currently celebrating its 10th anniversary. The cast, who were present during the event, offered their comments. Tomokazu Sugita (Gintoki) stated, “A lot of things are celebrating anniversaries. Congratulations to Sengoku Basara for its 10th anniversary, Cardcaptor Sakura for its 20th anniversary, and the Gintama anime for its 10th anniversary. The first step to the 11th year has already begun.” Daisuke Sakaguchi (Shinpachi) said, “I don’t really feel like 10 years have passed. My feelings and mental age haven’t really progressed since that first recording session. I’m sure the next 10 years would be the same.” Rie Kugimiya (Kagura) stated, “I’m really happy I was able to celebrate the 10th anniversary with everyone here. It’s been 10 years I’ve spent with people I love and all of you, and the roller coaster of emotions that comes from the fraudulent ‘the series is ending’ announcements. Here’s to more Gintama in the future!”
