Hi, everyone! I had the chance to watch the live-action film of Gintama 2: Rules Are Made To Be Broken last November 23rd at SM Megamall. The tickets cost 1,200 Php for this special screening. All the attendees were given a free Gintama 2 shirt and a poster.

I personally think that the part two of this live-action film is more entertaining than the first one. I love it because of the comedy, the action and the tragic scenes. One of my favorite comedy scenes was when Gintoki (Oguri Shun), Shinpachi (Suda Masaki) and Kagura (Hashimoto Kanna) are in the salon. The Shogun came for a haircut. They accidentally cut his "chonmage" or the traditional Japanese topknot haircut so Gintoki pulled the Shogun's hair so hard that his face was disfigured. That was both a funny and scary scene! It was scary because of how the face ended up. I won't spoil much anymore so I hope you'll watch and look forward to that scene and to the whole movie!
Gintama also features one of my most favorite Amuse actors, Miura Haruma. Haruma played a dramatic role named Ito Kamotaro and he did not disappoint. His character is a serious one. If you have watched the anime series, then you'll have an idea what will happen to him. I easily cry when watching movies especially Japanese ones so I also went emotional when they showed the last few scenes of Haruma.

The main star of Gintama, Oguri Shun, did a great job again. He never ceases to deliver well. He was so good with both the comedy and action parts. I have also watched Shun's action dramas such as Border, Ouroboros and Crisis: Special Security Squad. He perfectly did an awesome job with those dramas I've mentioned so I would love it too if you would give them a try! He's totally an expert when it comes to action. By the way, Shun will have his Hollywood debut soon for the movie "Godzilla Vs. Kong" so let's also watch out for that!

Shun's co-stars for Gintama, Hashimoto Kanna and Suda Masaki, also did an amazing job. I love Hashimoto Kanna's facial expressions. She's like the female version of Kaku Kento! I also like Suda Masaki's character here. He was also funny to me. Kubota Masataka, one of the new actors who was added in part 2, also did an excellent portrayal! Better watch out for his mind-blowing scenes! He only has few scenes but they were also absolutely great! He did not also disappoint! I also commend Yoshizawa Ryo and Yagira Yuya's acting. Yoshizawa Ryo who played Okita Sogo was so cool again so as Yagira Yuya. I love Oryo's character in the train scenes! He was so brave!

One of the saddest parts for me while watching Gintama was I cannot really relate with the anime references. I got some but I didn't get most of it since I rarely watch anime nowadays. I'm more into Japanese dramas and films now.
I give the movie 9/10 for the good laugh and tears. It was such an entertaining movie.
