A duo of a war veteran nicknamed the ‘immortal’ and a tribal girl with sharp hunting skills is formidable. Satoru Noda’s Golden Kamuy brings you a tale of such a pair trying to find a treasure that can change their lives.
Saichi Sugimoto has only one concern in his life: a promise made to a dying friend. To fulfill it, he will go to any lengths. And what kind of lame protagonist doesn’t have a cool companion who knows how to hunt?!
As awesome as the Golden Kamuy sounds, it is unfortunate that the manga is going on a three-week break after the next chapter’s release 🙁
It is most likely that the mangaka, Nado, is finally taking that much-deserved break after continuously delivering quality content to the fans.
I know I know, you must be wondering why the build-up and curiosity just to announce a break?!
The manga recently announced that it is in the final story arc and will be concluding soon. It is one highly anticipated ending due to the manga’s captivating plot.
The final story arc can be described as ‘the early bird catches the worm.’ It is a race against time itself and with others who want the treasure just as much as Saichi does.
Driven by a promise and revenge, Sugimoto and Asirpa need to find the gold before their time and luck both run out.
It’s a story that will make you realize the brutality of war, it shows the natural aspect of a conflict between nations and not just its romanticized version.
The representation of the tribal group of Ainu is accurate, along with the well-intricated story. Considering how controversial it is to talk about those difficult times, Satoru Noda did a great job.
It is a must-read for everyone fascinated with history, politics, adventure, and a little bit of drama too!
This is a great time to catch up on the manga or the anime before it resumes! So for the fans who are updated on the latest chapter…have some patience!
