      Looks good but :/

    • jiwan

      Wow Kagura-chan… 😂 aru aru aru aru

    • ol-lady

      Oguri Shun!!!! <3 <3 OMG

      Shinpachi looks too ikemen LOL. He’s supposed to be forgettable. But I can’t wait to see how Suda is going to portray him. And I’m ready for another wacky Oguri Shun. I really love him in Nobunaga Concerto. Not sure about Kanna’s acting (which I don’t like), but her visuals are close enough to Kagura. I can only hope she doesn’t dissapoint in this one.

      I’m so ready for 2017’s shounen manga massacre! Gintama & Jojo for summer, and FMA winter!

      Not a fan of Kanna but she certainly looks almost as cute as Kagura.

    • Jo

      Kanna’s Kagura is too refined I don’t know…

    • Historia Lenz

      Shun Oguri looks perfect as Gintoki! :)

    • Wow! Shinpachi is perfect. Look at that metal frame :p

      OMG this looks really good :O

    • pandaa2016

      Of course they look great, they look air brushed asf lol. Probably gonna watch it because of Suda and I still don’t think Kanna is a good fit for Kagura.

    • I love titties

      this looks good, I admit. But I’m still worried about how they’re going to do the jokes

    • atralail

      wow they don’t look too bad, i’m kinda excited now.
      looking forward to next batches of character visuals, i want to see what king of acting, yuya yagira brings to the table
