With just one day after the live-action film rolls out in Japan on July 14, a brand-new Gintama web-series is going to stream! And the best part? It will be the same cast and crew as it was in the movie!

(Check out the movie cast in costume here)

 

Docomo’s dTV, a streaming service in Japan recently announced that the live-action film of Hideaki Sorachi‘s Gintama manga is inspiring a live-action net show that will air on July 15. No specifics yet but it is said that they will loosely follow a popular story arc in the manga.

 

Can’t wait? Well it would please you to know that the same streaming service will air “movie -style” comics of the same title starting July 1st. It will feature the same layout as it would look when reading a manga, but enhanced with few animations sequences and voice acting. It is said that this particular series will strictly follow events from the book.

So what do you think? I’m pretty sure that Gintama fans will get it good this July!
