The fact that we’re getting another season of amazing Asirpa faces makes this truly happy news.
Earlier today, the final episode of the Golden Kamuy anime aired on Japanese TV. During the finale, it was announced that the show will return for a second season. The new run will air in October on TOKYO MX, Sapporo TV, Touch TV, and Aomori Asahi Broadcasting. A teaser visual for the news was also revealed on the show’s official website, which you can check out below.
Hitoshi Nanba (Fate/Grand Order: First Order, Gosick) was tapped to direct the first season at Geno Studio, with Kenichi Ohnuki (Gundam Build Fighters, Samurai Gun) providing character designs. Noboru Takagi (Baccano!, Durarara!!) was in charge of series composition for the project.
Crunchyroll aired Golden Kamuy as part of their Spring 2018 simulcast lineup. They describe the show as:
The story takes place in the mighty Northern field of Hokkaido, the time is in the turbulent late Meiji Era.
A post war soldier Sugimoto, aka, “Immortal Sugimoto” —who survived the lethal Japan-Russo War—was in need of large sums of money for a particular purpose…
What awaited Sugimoto, who stepped into Hokkaido’s Gold Rush with dreams of making a fortune at a single stroke, was a tattoo map leading to a hidden treasure based on hints inscribed on the bodies of convicts in Abashiri Prison?!
The magnificent nature of Hokkaido vs vicious convicts and the meeting with a pure Ainu girl, Ashiripa!! A survival battle for a hidden treasure hunt begins!
