Earlier in September it was announced that there were plans for new Gintama anime, and now TV Tokyo announced that Hideaki Sorachi’s Gintama will return with it’s Anime late-night between January 8 and 9 at 1:35am.
The series was last adapted in the Spring 2015-Winter 2016 Gintama°. It and earlier seasons had been running at 6:00pm – which as been cause for complaints in the past. The new time slot is a both good and bad thing for the Anime. Late night time slot means less viewers for the show but considering Gintama does have content not appropriate for kids from time to time, it can now actually go ahead with those ideas and content without worrying about censorship.
