The staff of the live-action Gintama 2 film have been keeping details about it a secret for quite some time. However, they’ve now decided to reveal a lot of these secret details, and that includes the official title. It turns out that Gintama 2’s official title is Gintama 2: Okite wa Yaburu Tame ni Koso Aru. The film’s title means “The Law is Surely There to be Broken,” which is certainly very Gintama. The staff also unveiled several new character visuals, though they didn’t reveal who is playing who. However, we do know that there are a few familiar characters in there…
