Chikahiro Kobayashi and Haruka Shiraishi join Geno Studio production

The upcoming TV anime BASED ON Satoru Noda's 2014 Manga Taishō Award winning historical fiction action Golden Kamuy now has a pair of lead voice actors. Fearsome Russo-Japanese War veteran Saichi "Immortal" Sugimoto will be voiced by Chikahiro Kobayashi (formerly voice of bit parts in anime such as Mushibugyo) while Asirpa, his young, Ainu partner in a hunt for stolen gold, is voiced by Haruka Shiraishi (Ronja the Robber's Daughter lead, Umaru-chan's Kirie).


 Hitoshi Nanba (Fate/Grand Order: First Order, Baki, Heroman, Gosick) directs the Geno Studio (Project Itoh: Genocidal Organ) production. Noboru Takagi (Baccano!, Durarara!!) is writing series composition, with Kenichi Ohnuki (Gundam Build Fighters) on character designs.

Yoshitake "Escape King" Shiraishi also makes an appearance in the new visual though his voice actor is TBA.



The two are also appearing in a crossover promotion with soccer team Hokkaido Consadole Sapporo on December 2nd



North American publisher Viz describes Noda's award-winning manga like so: 

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.
