Are you ready for more of Asirpa’s weird faces? Well, the official Golden Kamuy website has updated, and it announced that the anime is getting a much-deserved third season! They even revealed a new teaser PV along with a key visual:
Unfortunately, the website did not reveal any further details yet. We still don’t have a release window for this new season. However, before this new anime even premieres, they will be releasing a new OVA for Golden Kamuy in September. This will be the third OVA for the franchise, and it will come bundled with the Vol. 19 release of Satoru Noda’s original manga. This new OVA will be adapting the manga’s Monster arc, and will be released on 23rd September 2019.
Here’s how Viz Media, which releases the manga in English, describes its story:
In the early twentieth century, Russo-Japanese War veteran Saichi “Immortal” Sugimoto scratches out a meager existence during the postwar gold rush in the wilderness of Hokkaido. When he stumbles across a map to a fortune in hidden Ainu gold, he sets off on a treacherous quest to find it. But Sugimoto is not the only interested party, and everyone who knows about the gold will kill to possess it! Faced with the harsh conditions of the northern wilderness, ruthless criminals and rogue Japanese soldiers, Sugimoto will need all his skills and luck—and the help of an Ainu girl named Asirpa—to survive.
