(Last Updated On: June 27, 2023)

The production team behind the anime adaptation of Satoru Noda’s Golden Kamuy manga has officially received the green light for the final arc. This exciting news followed the conclusion of the fourth season on Monday.

The fourth season of the anime initially premiered in October 2022, treating viewers to episodes 1-6 (equivalent to episodes 37-42 in the overall series). However, the broadcast abruptly halted when a tragic event occurred. Regrettably, on November 1, an essential member of the main staff passed away, leaving an irreplaceable void within the production team.

Acknowledging the immense contribution of this individual, the anime’s studio, Brains Base, along with the production committee, engaged in thoughtful deliberation and jointly decided to postpone the airing of episodes 7-13 (equivalent to episodes 43-49 in the overall series) of the fourth season.

On April 3, the anime franchise made a triumphant return with its first episode (the 37th episode overall). This time around, Brains Base took over the animation duties from Geno Studio. The esteemed Shizutaka Sugahara (known for D-Frag!) assumed the role of chief director, succeeding the previous director Hitoshi Nanba. Noboru Takagi made a welcome return to supervise the series scripts. As for character design, Takumi Yamakawa took over the reins from Kenichi Ohnuki. The opening theme song, “NEVER SAY GOODBYE feat. Mummy-D,” was performed by Ali, while the ending theme song, “Subete ga Soko ni Arimasu You Ni” (I Pray That Everything Will be There), was mesmerizingly delivered by THE SPELLBOUND.

In the early 1900s, Saichi Sugimoto, a veteran of the Russo-Japanese War known as “Immortal,” struggles to make a meager living in the untamed wilderness of Hokkaido after the war’s end. However, his life takes an exhilarating turn when he stumbles upon a map leading to a hidden fortune of Ainu gold. Determined to claim it, Sugimoto embarks on a perilous journey, aware that he isn’t the sole contender. In this treacherous landscape, where criminals and renegade Japanese soldiers abound, survival hinges on Sugimoto’s resourcefulness, fortune, and an unlikely ally—an Ainu girl named Asirpa.
