Four months after the filming was wrapped up, Yuichi Fukuda, the director of the upcoming live-action film adaptation of Hideaki Sorachi's action comedy manga Gintama, has posted three photos from the set on his official Twitter, showing Kanna Hashimoto (Kagura) and the director himself who were taking a nap on the chair. The film is set to open in Japan in July 2017.
"In last summer, during the filming of Gintama, it was true that I often took a nap in my waiting time for action scenes and such. But when I was organizing photos yesterday, I found Masaki Suda taking a photo with me in sleep. Hey, hey! Why were you posing a peace sign with the sleeping director! By way of revenge, I've just posted a photo of Kagura taking a nap. However! I was also sleeping. What's the heck?"
