A sci-fi samurai mash-up that will leave you in stitches


In a world where aliens have invaded Edo Period Japan, skyscrapers, trains and motor bikes have replaced the simple life of Earth inhabitants. One man however, still carries the soul of a samurai, Gintoki Sakata, otherwise known as Yorozuya Gin-san. As reckless as he is, Gintoki carries his own resolve and is ready to take on any challenge with his fellow companions.

From the director of the infamous Hentai Kamen films, Gintama is Japan’s third largest box office hit of 2017, based on the popular comic book series of the same title by Hideaki Sorachi.
