Gintama’s Kagura has been quite known for her “projectile vomiting” in the anime and manga series. With the live-action Gintama movie coming up, actress Kanna Hashimoto had to look for inspiration on how to puke like Kagura. After some advice from co-star Masaki Suda (Shinpachi) and director Yuuichi Fukuda, she finally found her vomiting inspiration… Singapore’s very own Merlion!
