Gintama 2: The Law is Surely There to be Broken

Gintama (銀魂) is a Japanese jidaigeki action comedy film written and directed by Yūichi Fukuda, starring Shun Oguri and based on the manga series of the same name written and illustrated by Hideaki Sorachi. It was released on July 14, 2017 in Japan by Warner Bros. Pictures.

The film's script adapts the manga's 83rd and 84th lessons, and the Benizakura Arc.

A sequel for this film is announced for an August 17 release.


Yorozuya receives two similar and ultimately connected jobs: Elizabeth needs Odd Jobs to find Katsura, and a swordsmith needs the crew to find a dangerous sword named Benizakura. There is more to both requests than Gintoki and his friends thought.







Differences from the Manga/Anime[]

This section is updating.

  • Lesson 83 and 84/Anime Episode 65:
    • Shinpachi is disgusted & scared to the view of the Honey-covered Kondo and Hijikata's attempted Mayonnaise bait. In the movie, Shinpachi claims that Kondo is "beautiful" ( it was unclear if this was genuine praise of sarcasm), and quietly ignores Hijikata's actions.
    • Kagura and Sougo challenges a beetle fight with their respective beetles, Rurimaru and Sadomaru. In the movie, the Shinsengumi and the Yorozuya chase after it.
    • Rurimaru dies from being stomped by Gintoki. In the movie, Rurimaru is eaten by an aquatic creature.

Web Drama[]

A three-parter drama, Gintama: Mitsuba Chapter, is produced exclusively for the dTV Channel at July 15.



  • The characters that did not appear in the live-action movie but were in the anime are Kawakami Bansai, Kamui and Abuto (Although Kamui and Abuto appeared only as a cameo in the Benizakura movie)

Later references[]

  • Episode 329: Shinpachi considers Masaki Suda as his "3D" form, which irritates both Gintoki and Kagura, which ultimately mocks Shinpachi for being happy to his live-action actor, while they angrily tell him not to mention the film itself.
