Golden Kamuy Anime Adaptation Announced

If you haven’t had a chance to check out Satoru Noda’s Golden Kamuy—which is being released in English courtesy of Viz Media—you should definitely do so. It’s an excellent series, which is why it won the 2016 Manga Taishō Award that celebrates newer manga. It’s also getting an anime adaptation, as revealed via early looks at an upcoming double issue of Young Jump magazine.

 

Here’s how Viz describes it: 

 

In the early twentieth century, Russo-Japanese War veteran Saichi “Immortal” Sugimoto scratches out a meager existence during the postwar gold rush on the wild frontier 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.
