Gintama Live-Action Film

Shun-kun, Shun-kun, Shun-kun!!!! Here at Anime Pad we are huge fans of Shun Oguri. We’ve watched a ton of his television and movie roles. Such titles as: Rich Man, Poor Woman; Rich Man, Poor Woman in New York; Ouroboros; Lupin the 3rd; Nobunaga Concerto; Dolittle the Veterinary Physician; Crows; Tokyo Dogs; Binbo Danshi; Boys Over Flowers. These are just some of our favorites but there are many more.

Gintama the manga/anime samurai shonen slap-stick is now a feature film. Brought to the US and Canada in subs by Azoland Pictures. Based on the best-selling action comedy manga by Hideaki Sorachi, GINTAMA takes place in an alternate Edo-period Japan, where an Alien race has taken control, forcing Samurai to lay down their swords. Once feared as the “White Demon,” former samurai Gintoki Sakata now works as an everyday handyman – until a master swordsman tasks Gintoki and his friends with finding the cursed sword Benizakura to keep it from falling into the wrong hands. Packed with the sword-swinging sci-fi action and offbeat humor that have made the manga a classic, GINTAMA is bound to delight both fans and anyone looking for a journey to a visually-stunning universe where fantastical action lurks just around every corner.
