North American anime distributor Viz Media's Neon Valley service revealed in its schedule on Wednesday that it will debut the 2010 Gintama: The Movie anime film's dubbed version on June 2 at 8:00 p.m. EDT.
Sentai Filmworks licensed the Gintama film and released it on Blu-ray Disc and DVD last year. The 95-minute feature retells a story from the Gintama television series, which is set in an alternate version of Tokyo that Amanto aliens have invaded. Former samurai Gintoki Sakata investigates the disappearance of a legendary sword named Benizakura, while his partners Kagura and Shinpachi Shimura try to find out what happened to Gintoki's friend, Kotaro Katsura.
A second Gintama film, Gekijōban Gintama Kanketsu-hen: Yorozuya yo Eien Nare (Gintama the Movie: The Final Chapter: Be Forever Yorozuya) will open in Japan on July 6.
