Haruma Miura, Masataka Kubota Join Gintama 2 Live-Action Film as Kamotaro Ito, Bansai Kawakami

The highly-anticipated sequel will open in Japan on August 17

Following the five teaser visuals posted last week, the official website for Gintama 2: Okite wa Yaburu tame ni koso Aru (The Rule is surely there to be broken), the upcoming second live-action film based on Hideaki Sorachi's sci-fi comedy manga series, today revealed its two new cast members who play the key persons in the story.


28-year-old Haruma Miura (Eren Yeager in the Attack on Titan live-action films) is cast as the Shinsengumi's advisor Kamotrao Ito, who will make the biggest incident in the history of the group. Meanwhile, 29-year-old Masataka Kubota (Light Yagami in the Death Note TV drama, Ken Kaneki in the Tokyo Ghoul live-action film) plays Bansai Kawakami, one of the strongest swordsmen in Kiheitai, who is also famous as a music producer.

"I have heard from Oguri-san (Gintoki Sakata), 'Director Fukuda is a person who really thinks about us

who are actors.' And it was a wonderful movie set that I was actually able to feel it. I think that the film

shows a great contrast between the humorous parts that closely follows the original, the part we can have

a fun without hesitation, and the 'Shinsengumi Douran-hen/Shinsengumi Crisis Arc' that tells a hot drama

filled with actions."

"Gintama's fusion between the gag and serious parts is very new. It is typical of the original manga, and I

have felt it is difficult to find a similar case in films. I felt so much pressure to participate the 'Gintama 2.'

But I also thought, If I do it at all, I should enjoy, so I tried this role of Bansai with everything I got."
