Sugimoto, Asirpa, and Shiraishi are back this fall with Golden Kamuy 2. The hunt for more tattoos and the stolen gold will resume this season. When will it come out and what are the things that we need to expect in this next season? Here’s everything we know about Golden Kamuy 2.
Golden Kamuy 2 Release Date And Trailer
Even though the first season of Golden Kamuy just aired from April 9 to June 25 this year, we’re now going to have the second season just after almost five months of waiting. Are we going to get a better CGI now or we will still see the infamously too realistic Golden Kamuy bears?
Golden Kamuy 2 is expected to resume Sugimoto, Asirpa, and Shiraishi’s adventure to find tattooed people for the Ainu Gold. Although instead of going to Abashiri, Shiraishi convinced his two other companions to go to Yuubari instead. The trio also needs to deal about Noppera-bo’s identity. Noppera-bo, who is said to murder Asirpa’s father, is actually her real father. At the end of the first season, they got five tattooed skins.
Lieutenant Tsurumi is still trying to get his hands into these tattoos, and he’s still using Sugimoto and his group to make the job easier. Here’s the trailer for those who haven’t seen it yet.
A new key visual is also released a few days before the second season’s premiere. In the poster, you will see Sugimoto, Asirpa, and Shiraishi in front of the poster, while the other characters who are expected to show up in this season are behind them.
As per Japanese news site Natalie, the release date of Golden Kamuy 2 is on October 8, 2018, and will air on Tokyo MX, Yomiuri TV, and Sapporo TV. The manga, which is made by Noda Satoru, is serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump.
For those who haven’t seen Golden Kamuy yet, the story is about Saichi Sugimoto, who is a survivor in the Russo-Japanese War. To support the widow of his friend, Toraji, he decided to be a miner. He was then informed about the stolen gold from the Ainu which worth about 800,000 Yen. The only clue to its location is a map written in the skin of prisoners. Testing his luck, he decided to join the Gold Rush.
