On the official page of the animated franchise based on the manga written and illustrated by Satoru Noda, Golden Kamuy, announced that a special event will be held in Japan on December 5th. The event will involve the participation of the voices from the project, including Chikahiro Kobayashi (Saichi Sugimoto's voice) and Haruka Shiraishi (Asirpa's voice), so important announcements for the franchise were to be expected.

Golden Kamuy

Noda started publishing the manga through the magazine Weekly young jump from the publisher Shueisha since August 2014. The publisher published the 26th anthology in June 2021, followed by the 27th on September 17th in Japan. The work entered its final story arc since last July.

The work inspired a three-season anime adaptation that to date includes thirty-six episodes and four OVAs, produced by Geno Studio Headed by Hitoshi Nanba and scripts written by Noboru Takagi. The three seasons, each with twelve episodes, premiered in Japan in April 2018, October 2018 and October 2020. So far there has been no news about a new season.

Summary of Golden Kamuy

In the early 1900s, Saichi Sugimoto searched relentlessly for gold in Hokkaido after the Russo-Japanese War. The former soldier is nicknamed "Sugimoto the Immortal" for his death-defying deeds in combat abroad because of her visual impairment. One day a drunk lad tells Sugimoto the story of a man who murdered an Ainu group and stole a fortune in gold. Before the police arrested him, he hid the gold somewhere in Hokkaido. The only clue of his whereabouts is the coded card he tattooed on the corpses of his cellmates in order to receive a share of the treasure in case they escape and find him.

Sugimoto doesn't think much about the story until he discovers the drunk's corpse with the same tattoos that are described in the story. But before he can collect his thoughts, a grizzly bear, the man's killer, comes up to Sugimoto, determined to finish his meal. He is rescued by a young Ainu named Asirpa, whose father turned out to be one of the Ainu killed. With Asirpa's hunting skills and Sugimoto's instincts for survival, the two agree to join forces and find the hidden treasure: one to retrieve what was rightfully their village and the other to grant the dying wish of their friend.
