I hope you aren’t tired of exploring the Hokkaido wilderness for stolen Ainu gold because Golden Kamuy is returning for a second season!
Golden Kamuy Season Two will air this fall, with Studio Geno and season one’s staff returning to produce the goods. More details on the project will be shared at a later time.
Satoru Noda launched the award-winning manga in 2014 and it has become a smash-hit. Golden Kamuy follows Russo-Japanese war veteran Saichi Sugimoto and an Ainu girl named Aspira. They team up to search for stolen gold, but they have different motivations – Sugimoto is sworn to protect an old friend’s wife and Aspira wants to avenge her father’s death.
Golden Kamuy is a gritty adventure about surviving in the wilderness, but there is also a lot of trivia about the Ainu people and comedy.
