After months of waiting, three new visuals for the upcoming live-action Gintama film have been released, and they feature the actors for the three members of Yorozuya, Gintoki, Shinpachi, and Kagura, in costume. Shun Oguri plays Gintoki Sakata, while Masaki Suda plays Shinpachi Shimura. To round out the trio, Kanna Hashimoto is playing Kagura.
-- Advertisment --
So far so good, and looks like the costumes are looking to stay loyal to the designs from Hideaki Sorachi’s 4th wall-breaking gag manga. Shun Oguri (Lupin III), is playing Gintoki Sakata, the silver-haired samurai who runs the Yoruzuya.
