Class 3-Z Ginpachi Sensei is a parody of 2nd Year B Gumi Kinpachi Sensei, which was featured twice in Akamaru Jump. In this spin-off, Ginpachi-sensei, disguised as Gintoki, enters the room donning glasses and a white coat while carrying a peropero candy instead of a cigarette, as he approaches the table.

In the parody, Ginpachi claims that the smoke emanates from rapidly licking the candy. What happens next? We’ll just have to wait for a little more for that.

How are fans reacting to Gintama’s comeback?

Fans expressed their excitement for the spin-off under various accounts that shared the news, with some commenting that they can’t wait to watch it. While others say that the “best sensei” is making a comeback.
