48-Year-Old Jiro Sato Tries on Kagura Costume for The Next “Gintama” Live-Action Film

There has been a rumor that 48-year-old actor Jiro Sato, who was cast as Henpeita Takechi in the first film, will play the main heroine Kagura in the upcoming second Gintama live-action film instead of the first film’s 19-year-old Kanna Hashimoto. Partly because it was officially announced on December 17 that he will join the second film as a different character, and he has admitted the possibility to play Kagura since then. Believe or not, director Yuichi Fukuda posted a photo of Sato trying on Kagura’s costume yesterday. 

 

Fukuda says, “It was a clothes fitting session for Jiro Sato-san. Though his size was checked beforehand, it was made much smaller. It must be remade from the first, an obvious mistake by the costume section!!”

 

Sato also comments, “The only problem left is size. Yes, that is the only problem.”

 

Seeing the photo, Kanna Hashimoto asked Fukuda: “It is funny enough already, I can’t think of

any funny response. I want to see Jiro-san playing Kagura the most (laugh). By the way, is that

the costume that I am supposed to wear, isn’t it…? Is that a previous one? Or a new one?”

 

 

Then Fukuda seriously answered: “Kankan, Jiro Sato has no intention to allow you to wear Kagura’s

costumes this time. He plans to begin serious action trainings from tomorrow.”


 

 

Highly-anticipated live-action sequel is set to be released in Japan on August 17, 2018
