All that glitters may not be gold, but this cast certainly is shaping up to be something precious.
Earlier today, the official Golden Kamuy anime website updated with a new key visual and a pair of cast reveals. We break the details down below:
The image features lead cahracters Saichi Sugimoto and Asirpa standing in the snow. Yoshitake “Escape King” Shiraishi is being dragged by a giant white wolf.
The series will star the following:
- Saichi “Immortal” Sugimoto: Chikahiro Kobayashi
- Asirpa: Haruka Shiraishi
Visuals for both characters were also released, which you can check out below:
Golden Kamuy is based on Satoru Noda’s manga of the same name. Hitoshi Nanba (Fate/Grand Order: First Order, Gosick) was tapped to direct the show at Geno Studio, with Kenichi Ohnuki (Gundam Build Fighters, Samurai Gun) providing character designs. Noboru Takagi (Baccano!, Durarara!!) is in charge of series composition for the project.
Viz Media currently holds the rights to the Golden Kamuy manga, which they describe as:
In the early twentieth century, Russo-Japanese War veteran Saichi “Immortal” Sugimoto scratches out a meager existence during the postwar gold rush in the wilderness of Hokkaido. When he stumbles across a map to a fortune in hidden Ainu gold, he sets off on a treacherous quest to find it. But Sugimoto is not the only interested party, and everyone who knows about the gold will kill to possess it! Faced with the harsh conditions of the northern wilderness, ruthless criminals and rogue Japanese soldiers, Sugimoto will need all his skills and luck—and the help of an Ainu girl named Asirpa—to survive.
