Historical action-comedy sequel is scheduled for this October
It's dangerous to venture alone in the great north of Japan, so the upcoming fourth season of Golden Kamuy today added another soldier to its growing squadron of new cast members: Masaaki Mizunaka as Private Rikimatsu Ariko of the Imperial Japanese Army's 7th division, an Ainu with deep knowledge of the mountains.

Noboru Takagi continues to write the series composition for the series, while Takumi Yamakawa (animation director on 5 episodes of To Your Eternity) takes over as the character designer.
