The Gintama: The Final anime film website revealed all the illustrations of Demon Slayer’s Hashira and Tanjiro: Kimetsu no Yaiba drawn by Gintama manga creator Hideaki Sorachi. He was given cards for the “last” Gintama anime project for the first week of screenings.
The full visual is going to on a double-sided mini-poster during the fourth week of
screenings of Gintama: THE FINAL in Japan, alongside another visual drawn by the manga creator.
The well-known Gintama manga was penned down by Sorachi Hideaki for Shounen Jump, and the anime adaptation was designed by Sunrise/Bandai Namco.
A post-modernist comedy with period drama and science-fiction mixed in is at its heart. That means you’re not only seeing samurai and ninja historical expiations but also monsters of space and aliens; all wrapped in a bundle that can make you laugh.

The visual reference of the Demon Slayer is that the Hashira (plus Tanjiro) does not appear in the Gintama film but, the Hashira (read as “samurai” in this case) plays an essential role in the excitement of the anime film’s “final battle.” It shows the true colors of the promotion.
Sorachi, the manga creator, was heavily involved in the film. It is stated in a post by the official website of the film. He helped to draw the theatrical benefits, the main posters, original animation, and voicing a character in the film. The post says they’re working hard together with the employees to make Gintama’s “true end” exciting.
