I know I sure didn’t earlier this week. But did you? If not, look closer, and maybe you can put your finger on it.

Yep, actor Shun Oguri’s hand has six fingers on the poster.

The actor doesn’t actually have an extra finger — not that there is anything wrong with extra fingers!

But maybe in the movie, hero Gintoki Sakata does? Or, at least, the Photoshop of him.

The live-action Gintama movie will be released in Japan next winter.


  • Seriously? The so-called first finger is clearly just part of his hand given the way that he’s holding his sword (with his hand bent sideways). Go ahead and try the pose yourself with a broom handle or something, you’ll see that it’s incredibly easy to replicate.

  • Finger number 2 seems a bit too long for that to be his pinky finger (On most people, it’s about 2/3 the length of the ring finger). I can see how the left side of the pic could be his hand, but the finger seems too long. Could be wrong, of course 🙂 The world will keep turning either way.

    • The other fingers are bent and the pinkie finger is straight, so from the angle of the camera it looks longer
