Golden Kamuy is one of the best, if not the best historical-seinen anime of 2018. The anime is massively popular and even after 2 seasons; fans are still clamoring for season 3. Now, Golden Kamuy season 3 has been confirmed to be in production! So, if you like Golden Kamuy and can’t get enough of the series, then you are in the right place. (Check: Kingdom Season 3.)
Today, I will tell you all you need to know about Golden Kamuy as a series and the much anticipated Golden Kamuy Season 3.
Now, before we get into Golden Kamuy’s Season 3, let’s take a look at what this series is all about.
Golden Kamuy is a historical-seinen genre anime series that portrays many real historical events with some twists. The series has been praised for its representation of a somewhat overlooked period in japan. It shows the historically known state of japan Hokkaido after RUSSO-JAP wars.
The author has been known to fact check important known events before portraying them in his manga, and that’s not the end of it. This series also portrays indigenous Ainu correctly in post-war Japan. This alone is no small feat, as the anime team itself had to travel to Hokkaido to work with the experts. They did this to make certain that they get all the details right.
This also tells us the care and length studio Geno was willing to go, in order to produce this anime as accurately as possible. This anime is also quite humorous. The jokes are sometimes unexpected and spot-on, while at other times they might just catch you by surprise.
Now, let us take a look at the plot of this historic anime to freshen our memories.
Golden Kamuy Plot:
Golden Kamui follows an average guy by the name Sugimoto who survived the Russo-Japanese war of the Meiji era. He was nicknamed “Sugimoto the immortal” during the war.
But now our rumored immortal hero seeks the riches of the gold rush in Hokkaido to save the widowed wife of this best friend. During this journey, he stumbles across some information about a huge stash of gold hidden away by a criminal. Now, together with the girl who saved his life from the harsh North he ventures into an elaborate race against the criminals who also seek the same bounty.
Golden Kamuy Anime:
Golden Kamuy is one of those gems which stay true to the source material. The anime correctly adapts the manga from panel to panel which is very hard to find these days! And it seems to have done a very good job.
The voice acting is phenomenal and Combined with its stunning visuals and an amazing story. We get a very well-balanced show with good pacing that almost everyone can sit down and enjoy.
But there is a catch. Since we can’t always have nice things, Golden Kamuy’s anime has 3D effects. Now it’s not as bad as some other anime, but the 3D factor is still there. Now, let’s be a little fair to the anime, these scenes are very few and barely affect the overall enjoyment of the anime. Other than that, this anime is amazing with little to no flaws.
Golden Kamuy is a personal favorite of mine and its “comedic aspect” is just hilarious. Satoru Noda, the Author of Golden Kamui is known for his wackiness. This is reflected in his works as seen. And this anime will make you laugh without a doubt, and maybe cry later on. So, it’s a bouquet of emotions. Which is why this is a must-watch for any anime fan out there.
Golden Kamuy Manga:
Golden Kamuy’s Manga is huge in Japan. Now, this manga is a visual marvel. Each panel is heavy on details so much so that even the backgrounds are stunning, and it can be felt while reading this work of art that the editors have poured their hearts and souls into its production.
Golden Kamuy is so loved that it won the Manga Taisho award back in 2016. For those who aren’t aware Manga Taisho is a prestigious award in japan chosen by the booksellers themselves rather than the general reader to the manga’s, they find deserving. Having read the manga myself, I can say with certainty that it’s well deserved.
And even if you are not an avid manga reader; once you start it, the manga is so stunning that you will fall in love with it, and keep reading it all the while craving for more.
Golden Kamuy Season 3 Release Date:
Now, finally, after months of waiting and patience, Golden Kamuy Season 3 has been confirmed. This is not that surprising due to the series’ growing popularity over the past years. This news was released in July at the Golden Kamuy live event.
Now we know that the anime is in production but no official date or even year has been released yet. But it’s certain that when it does, fans will swarm back to the anime like moths to a flame.
