While getting started with a new anime, the thing that comes to our mind is that “Will the particular character progress?” “What powers will the character achieve?” “Will they be able to achieve what they want?” and most importantly “Will they die in the anime?”. It happens every time, no matter what anime you are watching from whatever genre, it is the things that always ruin our fun over curiosity. The character we are going to talk about today is Kagura from the anime series “Gintama”. Kagura is one of the most famous characters in the series, and here we are going to know whether she will Kagura die in Gintama?

Kagura is one of the main characters of the series Gintama as the plot of the series is set in Edo, which is conquered by an alien from outer space named Amanto. The protagonist of the series Gintoki Sakata is a freelancer samurai along with his friends Shinpachi Shinmaru and Kagura as they work together to pay the monthly rent. Even though the series is set up in an ancient setting, it has some elements of science, as suggested by the editor of the series. Kagura is one of the friends of Gintoki. She is the youngest member of Yorozuya and the main female protagonist of the series. Kagura is a member of the Yato Tribe and the daughter of Umibouzu – the renowned alien hunter – the younger sister of Kamui. Her brother Kamui is the major antagonist of the Yoshiwara in Flames Arc.
Kagura didn’t have a very happy past. In her childhood, she lived in the slums of a faraway planet along with her parents and brother. Everything was quite normal until one day, her brother Kamui tried to kill their father but failed as he was only able to cut his arm. This incident made their father go berserk as he nearly killed Kamui, who was saved by Kagura. After that day, Umibousu left his family as he didn’t want to unintentionally hurt Kagura as he did with Kamui.
She was left to take care of a sickly mother, and all the incidents together made her a tsundere. Her actions can sometimes be contradictory to her likings. Even though she doesn’t like violence, she uses violence to solve her many problems. Being the youngest member of Yorozuya, Kagura had a very interesting and cheerful life. But will she die by the end of Gintama?
Will Kagura Die in Gintama?
The anime series Gintama is one of the humorous anime series which also goes around the theme of action in between. This is the reason why it became one of the most liked and popular series of all time. Kagura being a very aggressive, tsundere young girl, will not die in the series. However, there was an episode that made the fans mistake her death. In episode 297 of Gintama, Kagura faked her death, and that episode was indeed one of the most humorous of the whole series. Everyone was grieving at the hospital while they began the preparations for Kagura’s funeral. While Soyo and Sougo were crying over her death, Sougo was cut off as he heard Kagura’s breathing.
As they begin to carry Kagura’s coffin to the crematory, the crowd throws the boulder, but before it can hit, Shinpachi and Gintoki stop it return her umbrella, and bid their final farewell. Gintoki cries and apologizes to her as Kagura gets emotional and realizes how much he cares for her, and in return, she accidentally apologizes out loud. Everyone gets startled as they discover that Kagura is alive. Gintoki and Shinpachi release an annoyed sigh as they have to return all the money they have received for Kagura’s funeral. In the end, all the visitors get really angry over this and tie all the Yorozuya Trio and take them straight to the crematory.
