Finally, 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, unleashes a two-minute trailer packed with full of fun and actions, including a car chase in an open field. The clip also introduces the film's theme song "Daifuseikai" (Hugely Wrong) by three-member Japanese rock band back number. In addition, Jiro Sato's new character in the sequel, which has been kept secret, is revealed as a manager of a chabakura (hostess bar).
The highly-anticipated sequel, again directed by the first one's Yuichi Fukuda, combines the original manga's two popular stories: the "Shinsengumi Douran-hen/Shinsengumi Crisis Arc" (chapter 158-168) and the "Shogun Settai-hen/Shogun Reception Arc" featuring the 14th ruling Shogun of Edo, Shigeshige Tokugawa.
Gintama 2: Okite wa Yaburu tame ni koso Aru will open in Japan on August 17, 2018.
