Gintama Releases Special Kimetsu no Yaiba Promo Visual
Last month it was reported that three characters from the franchise based on the Kimetsu no Yaiba manga had been drawn by Gintama author Hideaki Sorachi. Now the complete illustration with Tanjirou Kamado surrounded by the "Nine Pillars" has been published by the author.
Additionally, a new illustration with the three protagonists of the Gintama franchise has been published to promote the screenings of the film Gintama: The Final.
The catchphrase for the visual starring Kimetsu no Yaiba reads: “The final battle of the Hashira (samurai) has arrived! Although many of them do not even appear ", referring to the fact that in the movie Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Ressha-hen not all the Pillars appear.
The two illustrations will be part of a promotional mini-poster that cinemas will begin to deliver to visitors to the film Gintama: The Final from January 29, which corresponds to the fourth weekend of screenings. In fact, Sorachi also drew some stills of the feature film, which are being randomly distributed on the second and third weekend of screenings.
Finally, the film opened in theaters in Japan on January 8 and is based on the original ending of the manga combined with original narrative elements. A two-episode special project, titled Gintama: The Semi-Final, will offer a prequel story to this feature film and will air in Japan on January 15 and 20.
