Feast Your Eyes On Latest "Golden Kamuy" Promo
Award-winning manga to be adapted into anime
Golden Kamuy has it all. Men tough enough to earn the moniker "immortal." Cute girls. Legendary samurai. Exotic food. Now that it's getting an anime adaptation, Young Jump has been giving it plenty of promotion.
Check out the latest!
In 2016, Satoru Noda's Golden Kamuy beat Erased, Delicious in Dungeon/Dungeon Meshi, Tokyo Tarareba Girls and more to win the Manga Taishō Award, an annual recognition for newer manga with eight volumes or less, selected by Japan's bookstore workers. It was also nominated for 20th Osamu Tezuka Cultural Prize and 40th Kodansha Manga Award. The 2016 Kono Manga ga Sugoi!/Incredible Manga guide listed it as #2 for male readers.
There was a promo from when it was collecting all the awards...
And a rap from a Shibuya Dogenzaka tie-in celebration!
Viz also made one to go with the manga's English release
In the early twentieth century, Russo-Japanese War veteran Saichi “Immortal” Sugimoto scratches out a meager existence during the postwar gold rush on the wild frontier of Hokkaido. When he stumbles across a map to a fortune in hidden Ainu gold, he sets off on a treacherous quest to find it. But Sugimoto is not the only interested party, and everyone who knows about the gold will kill to possess it! Faced with the harsh conditions of the northern wilderness, ruthless criminals and rogue Japanese soldiers, Sugimoto will need all his skills and luck—and the help of an Ainu girl named Asirpa—to survive.
