What You Need to Know:
- If you've been following the latest drama in the Gintama fandom, you'll know that a live action movie was announced for 2018, before Jump Shuueisha denied it completely.
- Well, it seems they were just trying to cover their tracks, as the cover of the latest weekly Shounen Jump magazine has confirmed it - with a full-colour illustration.
- Original creator Hideaki Sorachi has also commented on the announcement, stating "Please watch over this project with warmth, as you would a slightly extravagant cosplay competition."
Reactions Around the Web
So it really was getting a live action
The jokes definitely won't work in a live action, though...
How the hell are they going to make a movie it's literally all dirty jokes
I bet they'll cut out most of the jokes and make it a serious story from around the Benizakura arc
Literally no one wants this. Stop
Ha! I knew it! But wait... This means it's actually happening...
Yeah, really not sure how this will work. Sorachi doesn't sound like he has much faith in it, either!
