If you've been watching Gintama's Battle on Rakuyo arc, you'll have noticed that there's a new mystery woman in the series' opening (not that it's THAT ambigous who she is). That's Kouka, who's also on the cover of the Hideaki Sorachi manga's 64th volume. She finally turns up in anime episode 8.8/324, "Master of Kouan," and the series' Twitter teased that they got someone interesting to voice the lady.
Sunshine City Prince Hotel in Ikebukuro, Tokyo, announced today that it will start offering a time-limited special concept room based on the world and characters of Hideaki Sorachi's popular comedy manga series Gintama and its anime adaptation from this April. Pre-orders are planned to start in the middle of March. Hit the jump for more details.
For the upcoming release on July 14, the official website for the live-action film adaptation of Hideaki Sorachi's action comedy manga Gintama has added two more cast visuals of 43-year-old Ken Yasuda as swordsmith Tetsuya Murata and 21-year-old Akari Hayami as his sister Tetsuko. Hayami is an ex-member of idol group Momoiro Clover. Check the latest information after the jump.
