The key visuals have been released for the characters Gintoki Sakata (Shun Oguri), Shinpachi Shimura (Masaki Suda), and Kagura (Kanna Hashimoto) for the live-action movie of Gintama, based on the Hideaki Sorachi manga of the same name.
Oguri has dyed his own hair and wears a wig to get that perfect naturally-permed Gintoki hairstyle. Suda is wearing the plain Shinpachi-like glasses. Hashimoto has also dyed her own hair orange and has Kagura’s blue eyes and trademark red cheongsam.
Gintama is takes place in the Edo of a parallel world, where aliens called Amanto have begun to live and focuses on the slapstick lives of the Yorozuya’s (Odd-job shop) Gintoki Sakata and his friends. The live-action movie is being written and directed by Yuichi Fukuda and is due for release next summer.
