New Visuals for Gintama Live-Action Adaptation Released!

New visual posters have been released for the live-action adaptation of Gintama, which is being directed by Fukuda Yuichi and premieres on July 14, showing the cast in character!

To begin, actor Arai Hirofumi will be playing Okada Nizo, a blind yet deadly assassin who belongs to the extremist Kiheitai group. Not only is Okada the master of the Iai technique, but he’s also known as “Manslayer Nizo.”

Actor Sato Jiro will be playing Takechi Henpeita, an intelligent strategist for the Kiheitai - unfortunately, he’s also known as a bit of a weirdo. Sato, who’s appeared in much of Fukuda’s work, released the following statement: “The Kiheitai’s strength is rumored to match that of a demon’s... I’m well aware of this as a fan of the original work. But since I’m playing a character like Takechi, I just hope I don’t get too irritated!”

Actress Nanao will be playing Kijima Matako, who is also famously known as “Red Bullet.” Nanao has enthusiastically commented, “From the very start, I was really anxious...and once I finally got to try on the costume and wig, I wondered if it brought out her personality and feel. Since I’m the type that gets fired up really easily, I immediately thought I had to do my best!”

According to the official site, actor Domoto Tsuyoshi will be playing Takasugi Shinsuke, the leader of the Kiheitai.
