It looks like the upcoming live-action Gintama 2: Yo ni mo Kimyou na Gintama-chan web show is having an unexpected crossover. This is because Maetel from Leiji Matsumoto’s legendary space opera franchise, Galaxy Express 999, is coming over. Mizuki Yamamoto gets the honor of playing the character for this special-off show. They even revealed her in costume as the classic SciFi character.
However, Maetel’s role in the web series remains a mystery. It might just even be a cameo. However, knowing the nature of Gintama, it might even be a hilarious one… or they’re just trolling us again. This is Gintama after all.
As for the web show, the film’s director, Yuuichi Fukuda, is also directing it. It will premiere on 18th August via Docomo’s dTV streaming service. It will have three episodes and feature several characters from the sequel film. This includes Shun Oguri as Gintoki Sakata, Kanna Hashimoto as Kagura, Kankurou Nakamura as Isao Kondou, Yuuya Yagira as Toushirou Hijikata, and Ryou Yoshizawa as Sougo Okita.
