The official Twitter for the second original web drama Gintama 2 – Yo nimo Kimyouna Gintama-chan (The Strange and Unusual Gintama-chan) confirmed today that 39-year-old voice actress Rie Kugimiya, who has voiced the main heroine Kagura in the Gintama anime series since 2006, provides her voice as “a very interesting role” and that there will be a dream collaboration between her and 19-year-old Kanna Hashimoto, who has played Kagura in the live-action series.
Kugimiya says, “I had never thought that I could participate in this way, so I was very surprised when I received the offer. My voice recording session was so quick, even that part was so typical for Gintama! My scene is very characteristic of Kagura, in a way. I would be very happy if you can also pay attention to that point!”
