The story of Gintama: The Semi-Final takes place a day before the movie. Gintoki returns to Edo finding himself meeting Shinpachi who has inherited Yorozuya. A series of attacks, led by a manga artist who admires Gintoki, were done to Katsura and Shinpachi. The prequel is the Gintama you’ve known for years, full of gags.
