Ok. I've reached the current chapters. Probably the best shonen manga I've ever read.
Gintama is getting a new film in 2013 written by the gorilla. Apparently, the anime will also return on October 4, but it might just be reruns like Yorinuki Gin-san...

Anime on october? i doubt it. They stopped in april, so i think it's too early to start again. BTW i can't wait for the movie!
I wouldn't doubt it so much as this break is 1.5 years and the last one was just one year, now the anime is at about chapter 370 and up to oct. 2013 it will have a gap of possibly +-100 chapters which will take a while to close and also Sorachi sensei might start by then to wrap up the story.
But still a movie in april sounds awesome!
An anime reruns would help to promote the movies, so I don't mind if it is just a reruns. I doubt if we will get new episodes in October, the gap is still too short to produce 30-40 episodes. A reasonable time to make new episodes is in late 2013 or early 2014, or even when Sorachi wraps up this manga.
I keep my fingers crossed that the Anime movie is about the birth of Shiroyasha. I hope my wish will be granted by the Studio.
This also means that not only it's probable that Sket dance anime is over since Gintama will catch it's timeslot but that Binbougami ga is over for sure since the director will return to directing Gintama, now personally I'd think it would be the bset time to return Gintama one week after the movie for it to have it's impact bigger but I'm still very happy that it;s returning and as said above mre, I hope it won't be for only 26 episodes of awesomeness.
I have been reading the manga every week and it's one of my favorite, but this is one instance where the anime is so much superior than the manga!!
Thank god, there has been a great big hole in my weekly anime entertainment since the Gintama anime shut down.
The stuff that's coming up is going to be so good too. When good parts of a manga are rolling around to the anime adaptation I've gotten used to having a sense of foreboding but with Gintama that feeling is replaced by such excitement. I can't wait!
The movie sounds really exciting. And since it was written that it was an original plot by Sorachi himself, then there's a chance that it does involve Gintoki's past as the Shiroyasha. I mean the magazine pictures might be misleading, but we can only hope.
