Yamazaki Sagaru


Yamazaki Sagaru is the spy operative working for Shinsengumi, and more specifically reporting directly to his Demonic Vice Commander Hijikata Toushirou. He never goes undercover without equipping himself with the Shinsengumi Sausage, and more generally, he is almost never seen without a badminton racket. He is one of the loyal follower of Kondou's camp.

Yamazaki is often caught by his Vice-Commander Hijikata Toushirou 土方 十四郎 playing badminton by himself instead of working, and he is subsequently roughed up as a result. He is such a rabid badminton fan that he swings the badminton racket even during martial arts training sessions.


Please describe his external appearance.

Background Story

In the early days when Matsudaira Katakuriko was recruiting ronin for his Ronin Group 浪士組 , Yamazaki enrolled but was seen to be a punk-haired hooligan who bullies other enlistees. However, he was subsquently subdued and won over by Kondou Isao and his gang.


Out of the entire characters in Gintama, Sorachi already mentioned that Yamazaki will not be on any cover of Gintama tankoubon/volumes.[2] So far, he seems to be keeping that promise...
