Fall 2018 Anime: Official Twitter Hashtags & Pages
I already miss the summer. There is something about feeling the sun on your skin and the taste of ice-cream that makes the season a favorite for many.
Gintama 2, the second live action movie based on Hideaki Sorachi’s manga, has finally revealed its official title: Gintama 2: Okite wa Yaburu Tame ni Koso Aru (lit. Rules are there to be broken.). In addition, details have been revealed regarding the content of the movie.
Okite wa Yaburu Tame ni Koso Aru is merging the stories of the ‘Shinsengumi Douran-hen’ (Shinsengumi Crisis Arc), about the internal conflicts within the Shinsengumi, and the ‘Shogun Settai-hen’ (Shogun Reception Arc), which introduces the Shogun affectionately known as Sho-chan. The story begins with the three members of the Yorozuya (Odd Jobs Gin-Chan) running out of money and encountering the Shogun at their part-time job. Director Yuichi Fukuda commented: ‘When I read the viewer’s impressions of the first movie, some wrote that Gintama was interesting, cool, and touching. Then I noticed that this is what people were demanding Gintama to be. I came up with the idea of combining the story of entertaining the shogun and the Shinsengumi internal crisis.
Gintama 2: Okite wa Yaburu Tame ni Koso Aru is slated to open on 17 August 2018. Don’t forget to check out the new visual of the additional characters!
