Gintama (2017 film)

A favorite from your big sisters' list of favorite anime/manga franchise, Gintama is what happens when Edo Period Japan faced some sort of alien invasion and modernization became part of the everyday life, except for one swordsman recklessly takes on all sorts of problems head-on, with the help of his friends. Think of Gintama like Bleach but it just came and went, which is the sort of thing you like to get into, and with the live-action movie adaptation, some as suspect they're going to treat it like last year's your name.

Gintama (2017 film)



This live-action adaptation of the highly-controversial, yet very successful manga series that spawned five anime seasons as seen on TV Tokyo, features an all-star cast such as Shun Oguri as Gintoki Sakata, Masaki Suda as Shinpachi Shimura, Kanna Hashimoto as Kagura, Masaki Okada as Kotarou Katsura, Masami Nagasawa as Tae Shimura, Tsuyoshi Muro as Gengai Hiraga, Jiro Sato as Henpeita Takechi, Nanao as Matako Kijima, and many other big names in the Japanese showbizness.

With a storyline that sounds almost original compared to the manga franchise it was based upon, this film does show some heart when it comes to jumble different genre to became one of Japan's most-anticipated films of the summer since...er...um...your name. With all that action thriller, slapstick comedy that is beyond Gintama standards, heartfelt drama, suspense, and classic Gintama moments, it's no wonder there are most people got hooked to this film as much as every Gintama episode ever watched talked about even at their own sleep and it's our big sisters to blame for such goodness this film promises.

Because this live-action Gintama film is better than they expected, it's going to be a talk of the town and with upcoming live-action adaptations they're looking forward to like Tokyo Ghoul, Jojo's Bizarre Adventure, and Ajin, Gintama takes the cake as one of Japan's best summer blockbuster films and let's see how can they describe how are they going to file the film's coolness in five hundred words or more. Well, they did and the crowd loves it.

My rating: 4.1 out of 5.
