Golden Kamuy Story
Following the events of the Russo-Japanese war, Saichi Sugimoto is a veteran who finds himself in the midst of an age-old treasure hunt for gold.
Sugimoto, known as the “Immortal” for surviving the war, decides to track down the illustrious gold treasure alongside an Ainu girl named Asirpa who longs for revenge over her father’s death.
Golden Kamuy was illustrated and written by Satoru Noda and serialized in Weekly Young Jump – it saw great critical and commercial success during its run, with over 20 million copies in circulation from June 2022. The manga ended in April 2022.
The series is noted for its historical accuracy and respect for Ainu culture, bringing on an actual Ainu linguist from Chiba University to oversee the Ainu used in the story.
Certain characters, including Hijitaka Toshizo, are fictionalized versions of their historical counterparts.
The manga won multiple awards, including the 9th Manga Taisho in 2016 and the 22nd Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize in 2018. The anime is available to stream for viewers in North America on Crunchyroll and Funimation.
