YesAsia Editorial Description

Sorachi Hideaki's best-selling sci-fi samurai manga series Gintama has been adapted into a live-action film! Set in an alternate-world late Edo period Japan that has been conquered by aliens, the delightfully odd and entertaining blockbuster stars Oguri Shun (Lupin the Third) in the leading role of Sakata Gintoki, an eccentric silver-haired samurai who once fought in the battle against the alien invasion. After the fall of the shogun government, Gintoki settled down into a layabout life running the Yorozuya odd-job business. Directed by Fukuda Yuichi who previously collaborated with Oguri on HK: Hentai Kamen, Gintama is chockfull of in-jokes and tongue-in-cheek references that will tickle anime and manga fans.

Okada Masaki co-stars as Gintoki's childhood friend Katsura Kotaro who is part of the moderate underground resistance, while KinKi Kids' Domoto Tsuyoshi is antagonist Takasugi Shinsuke, a former comrade-in-arm who has turned radical. Other key characters include Suda Masaki and Hashimoto Kanna as Gintoki's Yorozuya partners Shimura Shinpachi and Kagura, Nagasawa Masami as Shinpachi's sister Tae, and Yagira Yuya, Yoshizawa Ryo and Nakamura Kankuro as members of the Shinsengumi police unit. Katsura's pet Elizabeth and Kagura's pet Sadaharu are also duly represented in the film in animal suit and CGI form.

Stories spread around town of a serial killer with a powerful sword that has a life of its own. Even Katsura (Okada Masaki) disappears after a run-in with this brutal swordsman, much to the concern of the Yorozuya team. Meanwhile, Gintoki (Oguri Shun) gets hired by the Murata siblings, swordsmiths Tetsuya (Yasuda Ken) and Tetsuko (Hayami Akari), to recover a missing sword, and a large mysterious ship suddenly docks in town.

Made for fans and soon-to-be fans
In his two live-action adaptations of the 90s gag superhero manga Hentai Kamen, Fukuda Yuichi demonstrated that he may not be the best of directors or writers, but he does appreciate and understand the appeal of the source material. Working again with Oguri Shun, who helped bring the first Hentai Kamen film to fruition, Fukuda adapts Sorachi Hideaki's best-selling manga Gintama into one long insider's joke for manga/anime fans. If the Rurouni Kenshin trilogy set the standard for how to adapt a popular manga about colorful-haired samurai into thrilling and respectable cinema for broad audiences, Gintama has now presented the alternative route to blockbusterdom: how to adapt a popular manga about colorful-haired samurai into a blatantly self-aware and fan-oriented film that's fun all around, even if you don't quite get all the references.

Gintama is set in an alternate Edo-era Japan that has been conquered by animal-head aliens. Protagonist Sakata Gintoki (Oguri Shun) is a skilled warrior who once bore arms in the failed resistance against the alien invasion, but now he's the smart-mouthed proprietor of a handyman service, along with partners Shimura Shinpachi (Suda Masaki) and Kagura (Hashimoto Kanna). He is hired to recover a powerful sword that's being wielded by a dangerous killer, and uncovers a deeper conspiracy involving a former comrade-in-arms.

Gintama's genre assures action and special effects, and the story leaves plenty of room for the darkness of war trauma, shattered friendships and bat-crazy bad guys, but what you'll remember the most at the end is the good-natured wackiness and humor. The film embraces the quirky comedy and references of the manga, and then amps it up with an additional layer of meta. It giddily references so many other manga/anime properties that even the characters themselves wonder out loud about copyright violation. When Elizabeth, an alien in a duck suit that expresses thoughts with signboards, comes waddling out, Gintoki and co. echo what the audience may also be thinking: he's fine in the manga but kind of creepy in real life. It's this kind of clever, self-deprecating humor that makes Gintama so easy to enjoy.

The deliberately campy quality of the film, though, does sometimes border on low-rent. Some of the costumes and wigs would barely pass muster at a cosplay convention, and Sadaharu, Kagura's giant pet inugami, is presented in poorly integrated CGI. The story's progression is also fairly chaotic and sporadic as the film scatters time towards characters and funny scenes that fans of the manga/anime will appreciate, but they don't necessarily advance the narrative.

Mileage also varies among the cast. Oguri Shun, who at this point seems to be choosing half of his films for otaku reasons, gets to dust off Lupin the Third and use his waggish comedic timing and dramatic chops for an appropriately laidback yet upright manga hero. The two Masakis – Suda Masaki as Shinpachi and Okada Masaki as Katsura Kotaro – give reliable if not particularly memorable performances, and the Shinsegumi are well cast though underused. Hashimoto Kanna is admirably committed to her character's over-the-top physical comedy but her performance often feels forced, especially in the scenes when she fights the even less convincing Nanao as Kijima Matako. Domoto Tsuyoshi is effective enough in his limited screentime as Takasugi Shinsuke, while Yasuda Ken is, as always, everything you ask for in an off-the-wall villain. Elizabeth is perfect.

As a manga adaptation, Gintama gets the tone right as it roller coasters between over-the-top non-serious sketches and over-the-top deadly serious conflicts. Though a bit messy from beginning to end, the film's unpretentious desire to entertain does exactly that. Fans will have a field day, but even viewers not familiar with the source material will have a good laugh from the abundance of quirks, gags and references.
