Gin Tama
The image features a jumping silver-haired person with a funny expression and holding up one arm. He wears a white and light blue kimono, a pair of black boots and pants. Only one arm is covered by the kimono. He has a wooden-sword being held by a black belt. The background features the Universe, a large number of stars, and in the bottom the Earth. The kanji 銀魂 (Gintama) is below, being written light blue and red letters with a golden spiral shown in the back. Under the kanji, the number "1" is shown, in the right words 天然パーマに悪いやつはいない (Tennen Pāma ni Warui Yatsu wa Inai) and above credits to the publisher (Jump Comics) and the author (Hideaki Sorachi).

Gin Tama (Japanese銀魂lit. "Silver Soul") is a Japanese manga written and illustrated by Hideaki Sorachi. Set in Edo which has been conquered by aliens named Amanto, the plot follows life from the point of view of samurai Gintoki Sakata, who works as a freelancer alongside his friends Shinpachi Shimura and Kagura in order to pay the monthly rent. Sorachi added the science fiction setting to develop characters to his liking after his editor suggested doing a historical series. It was serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump from December 2003 to September 2018, later in Jump GIGA from December 2018 to February 2019, and finished on the Gin Tama app in June 2019.

The series has been adapted into an original video animation (OVA) by Sunrise and was featured at Jump Festa 2006 Anime Tour in 2005. This was followed by a full 367-episode anime television series, which debuted in April 2006 on TV Tokyo, and finished in October 2018. Three animated films have been produced. The first film premiered in April 2010. The second film premiered in July 2013. The third and final film will premiere in January 2021. Besides the anime series, there have been various light novels and video games based on Gin Tama. A live-action film adaptation of the same name was released in July 2017 in Japan by Warner Bros. Pictures.[3]

The manga has been licensed by Viz Media in North America. In addition to publishing the individual volumes of the series, Viz serialized its first chapters in their Shonen Jump manga anthology. It debuted in the January 2007 issue, and was serialized at a rate of one chapter a month. Sentai Filmworks initially licensed the series. The website Crunchyroll purchased the anime's streaming rights and home video rights.

In Japan, the Gin Tama manga has been popular, with over 55 million copies in print, making it one of the best-selling manga series. The anime and its DVDs have been featured, at various times, in Top Ten rankings of their respective media, while TV Tokyo has announced that the first Gin Tama anime was responsible for high sales overseas along with the anime adaptation from Naruto. Publications for manga, anime and others have commented on the Gin Tama manga. Positive responses have focused on the comedy and characters from the series, as well as its overarching plot and action choreography.
