Developed by Geno Studios, ‘Golden Kamuy’ is a TV anime set in the early 20th century, not long after the conclusion of the Russo-Japanese War. The show follows Saichi Sugimoto, a former Imperial Japanese soldier who took part in the famous Battle of 203 Hill. After returning to civilian life, he begins taking care of the family of a fallen comrade. He comes to know about a legendary trove of Ainu gold from questionable sources. He is also told that the map to this treasure has been depicted in the tattoos of several runaway prisoners from Abashiri Prison. Eventually, after learning that these stories are actually accurate, he teams up with an Ainu girl named Asirpa to look for the gold. The search brings back old memories for the war veteran, who realizes that he must deal with old and new foes if he wants to get the gold for himself and Asirpa.
Based on a manga series written and illustrated by Satoru Noda, the anime premiered on April 9, 2018, and since received widespread recognition for its gritty and realistic storyline and complex characters. Here is what we know about the upcoming episode of ‘Golden Kamuy.’
Golden Kamuy Season 4 Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘Golden Kamuy’ season 3 concluded on December 21, 2020. While Geno Studios hasn’t released any statement on the subject yet, the anime is most likely to get a 4th season, considering its immense global popularity. Although there was only a 6-month gap between the premieres of seasons 1 and 2, season 3 came out exactly two years after season 2. The long hiatus proved to be a good thing for the anime. Season 3 has considerably better animation than the previous two seasons and better pacing to the story. So, if ‘Golden Kamuy’ wants to replicate its third-season success, it must invest considerable time and effort in developing the next season. Golden Kamuy Season 4 is expected to release in Fall 2022.
