Geno Studio has delivered another stellar production into their hands, the 2nd after Kokkoku the previous season...I'm impressed, and having more faith in the studio now.

Based off the popular manga series of the same name (for long-time coming fans), the story of Golden Kamuy in a nutshell, is of two people: the immortal soldier Sugimoto and the Ainu tribal clan girl Asirpa, both with different ideals and yet live for the common purpose. Saichi Sugimoto, having survived the war (dubbed his "immortal" status for his strong toughness in battle and style), was looked upon by a dying comrade to help his family continue life and read more

Golden Kamuy is that rarest of things among anime: a pleasant surprise. It combines elements of action, slice of life, and military anime into a period historical drama that is both harrowingly tense and a whole bunch of fun. For the characters and action alone this show is worth watching, but the small window it gives us into the history and culture of the Ainu people makes this show a must-watch.

Story:
In the frigid northern reaches of Hokkaido we meet Saichi Sugimoto, a legendary veteran of the recent (1904-05) Russo-Japanese war who is said to be nearly immortal. It is good that he is apparently immortal, read more

Golden Kamuy looks like yet another seinen which anime adaptation aims to destroy everything its source material accomplished. These were my expectations anyway, but I was wrong.


The writing is a bit lacking with its "pray and spray" war tactics and telepoting buddies who save the day on last possible second, but the atmosphere quickly makes up for this. In the first 5 minutes of episode 01, we get a scene where drunken man sits on a snowy river bank, gazing into nothingness while the heat from his campfire seems to be his only comfort. This scene is perfect. It gives us understanding of the series read more

Geno is a very new study, coming from people who used to work in Manglobe. His quality is by novice, now with the director of Goshik and with the screenwitter of Baccano?

-Synopsis-
A soldier named "Sugimoto the Immortal", after the Russo-Japanese War of 1905, starts looking for gold to pay for the operation of sight of the widow of a friend fallen in combat. There he discovers that there is a treasure map of the "Ainu" (Nippon Eskimos) and joins with a loli of this tribe to get hold of it. And there are CG bears.

-Story-
the story is quite interesting, there is a lot of hidden read more
