The debut Gintama trailer wasn’t exactly hilarious. The latest one isn’t either, but it does want you to know this: It’s a comedy.

Makes sense! Because the Gintama manga and anime are rather silly.

Which seems to be the goal of this trailer. We won’t know for sure if the Gintama movie is funny until it opens in Japan on July 14.
