Gintama THE FINAL Commemorative Illustration Contest will be held on the illustration communication service pixiv from December 19th, 2020 (Sat) <strong>About Gintama THE FINAL</strong> Gintama THE FINAL adapts the finale of the original manga and is the best and biggest scale movie of the entire series! After the series ended, the original author, Hideaki Sorachi, wanted to take a well-deserved nap... but we woke him up and got his full spontaneous cooperation. The result is an incredible final chapter, which pushes the limits of laughter and tears, features all the popular characters, exciting action, and wholesome friendships! And of course, the movie doesn't skimp on the usual gags. If you're watching Gintama for the first time, don't worry! Gintama THE FINAL is made to give you a clear picture of the story so far, so it's perfect for newcomers too! <strong>Story</strong> "What I wanted to protect is right here, in my soul." The countdown to the destruction of the Earth has begun! We all fight together to take Edo back! After an attack from outer space, the Yorozuya is on the run to save the Earth from the worst of the disasters. Former allies Gintoki, Takasugi, and Katsura, all move forward with their own thoughts in their hearts. However, they are confronted by Utsuro, a different persona of Yoshida Shouyou, the master who taught and guided Gintoki and his companions and with whom they have a sad bond. The last and greatest enemy, Utsuro, a monster that was born with the ability to absorb and contain a high amount of Altana, the planet's life force itself, granting him near ageless immortality and high regenerative capabilities, wants to destroy the Earth, allowing him to finally die but taking the universe down with him. Shinpachi, Kagura, the Shinsengumi, the members of Kabukicho, and even former enemies join the fight to stop Utsuro's ambition and to support Gintoki and the others who continue to fight with their master Shouyou in their hearts! The power of Utsuro is growing and Takasugi is ready to face it with his life on the line. What does the tattered Gintoki see at the end of his path...? Will he really be able to end it all?

External service linkage to enable pixiv creators to publish their works outside Japan pixiv https://www.pixiv.net/info.php?id=6140 2020-09-03T16:00:00+09:00 Greetings from pixiv. As we will soon release an external service linkage feature that will allow pixiv works to be posted on services outside Japan, we will also post an update on the internationalization of pixiv in recent years. <span style ="font-size:130%"><strong>About international pixiv users</strong></span> On April 28, 2020, pixiv exceeded 50 million registered users. The past two years have seen a remarkable increase in the number of international users, who now represent over 40% of all users. With the increase of multilingual comments, we have seen progressive globalization of the creators' fan bases. Over the past few years, Japanese content like anime, manga and games has been spreading all over the world, and many creators have been expanding globally as well. <span style ="font-size:130%"><strong>pixiv's efforts towards internationalization</strong></span> <img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20200903/167557680.jpg" width="600px" id="og_image" > In response to the recent increase in requests from pixiv creators who wish to deliver their works outside of Japan, we have been working on the following: - Support for four languages: English, Korean, Simplified Chinese, and Traditional Chinese - Release of a feature that allows users to suggest translations for pixiv work tags - Revision of pixiv's Privacy Policy in line with the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) - Addition of title and caption translations to illustrations, for English-speaking audiences. In order to make it easier for creators to deliver their work to people in other regions, we will cross the limitations of our service and start providing external service linkage. <span style ="font-size:120%"><strong>About external service linkage</strong></span> With external service linkage, users are able to publish their work on connected overseas services. Users are free to choose whether or not to publish their illustrations on services outside Japan. <strong>■ You can decide whether or not to publish each of your works</strong> <a href="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20200903/947895442.png"><img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20200903/947895442.png" width="600px"></a> * In addition to the simultaneous posting to social media feature, already available on pixiv, we have also added the external service linkage feature to post content to services outside Japan. * We will continue to provide the Twitter simultaneous posting feature and the way you manage it will not change. <span style ="font-size:130%"><strong>First stage: external service linkage with Tumeng is underway</strong></span> As the first step in this project, we have decided to collaborate with Tumeng, a new illustration service that will be soon be released in China, in order to deliver creators' work to as many people as possible. Tumeng is a new illustration posting service provided by Beijing Lanwan Boyue Technology Co., Ltd. (北京蓝湾博阅科技有限公司, CEO: Lu Haizhou, Location: Beijing), the company that runs the novel service "Bikan" in mainland China, which has more than 10 million users per month. Tumeng shares pixiv's corporate philosophy to "create an exciting space for creators to enjoy creative activities", and this brought the decision to develop a new connection between Tumeng and pixiv. <strong>■ A page on Tumeng</strong> <a href="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20200903/777418684.png"><img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20200903/777418684.png" width="300px"></a> <a href="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20200903/999037271.png"><img src="https://i.pximg.net/imgaz/upload/20200903/999037271.png" width="300px"></a>     <span style ="font-size:130%"><strong>About Tumeng</strong></span> When you select "Tumeng linkage" on the external service linkage page, a linked account will be created in Tumeng.
