In early 1900s Hokkaido after the Russo-Japanese war, Saichi Sugimoto tirelessly pans for gold. Nicknamed "Sugimoto the Immortal" for his death-defying acts in battle, the ex-soldier seeks fortune in order to fulfill a promise made to his best friend before he was killed in action: to support his family, especially his widow who needs treatment overseas for her deteriorating eyesight. One day, a drunken companion tells Sugimoto the tale of a man who murdered a group of Ainu and stole a fortune in gold. Before his arrest by the police, he hid the gold somewhere in Hokkaido. The only clue to its location is the coded map he tattooed on the bodies of his cellmates in exchange for a share of the treasure, should they manage to escape and find it.

Sugimoto does not think much of the tale until he discovers the drunken man's corpse bearing the same tattoos described in the story. But before he can collect his thoughts, a grizzly bear—the cause of the man's demise—approaches Sugimoto, intent on finishing her meal. He is saved by a young Ainu girl named Asirpa, whose father happened to be one of the murdered Ainu. With Asirpa's hunting skills and Sugimoto's survival instincts, the pair agree to join forces and find the hidden treasure—one to get back what was rightfully her people's, and the other to fulfill his friend's dying wish.

Please watch and enjoy this. The setting is sooo original, the story is getting more and more complex and you find extremely interesting characters that throw you into unexpected and mind facking adventures. And more, you have Shinsengumi oni no fukucho Hijikata.

This show made me so excited, I can't think of any annoying or boring detail related to the story. Some say cgi sucks, if you dwell on a few bears shown 10 seconds, yeah it sucks.

Comedy is not bad, I laughed sometimes. At least they don't try to explain the joke, which is a big selling point for the comedy.
I love ...

Mixed Feelings
The story of golden kamuy is enjoyable, at least in the first season. It first appealed to me with its history, wilderness themes, and treasure hunt themes. I All of those themes greatly interest me. However, where golden kamuy falls short is its attempt to combine all of those, and many more themes (cooking, ainu culture, political drama, slice of life, etc...) into one. Each episode feels like unimportant to the overall story and as if it was just put there because the author said "Hmm wouldn't it be cool if we did blank". I don't dislike any of these themes on there own, but ...

Well, this watching experiance was... unexpected
To be fair, the story and characters were filled with potential to be extreamly interesting, the execution not so much...

This anime has absolutely no freaking idea what it wants to be
The tone shifts so erratically, jumping from a gourmet slice of life, to all out comedy, to the most gruesome gore fest
I get how the gore fits the story, but the way it was presented, going from gore, to happy comedy, back to blood splatters, and then we're all happy again, in the matter of minutes, it had me questioning wheather the soul purpose of the anime was to traumatize ...
