Synopsis

In Hokkaido, the far northern lands of Japan, Sugimoto survived the Russo-Japanese war of the Meiji era. Nicknamed "Sugimoto the Immortal" during the war, he now seeks the riches promised by the gold rush in hopes of saving the widowed wife of his now deceased comrade from the war. During his hunt of gold, he finds hints of a hidden stash of gold by corrupt criminals. Partnering with an Ainu girl that saves his life from the harsh climates of the north, they venture into a survival adventure to race against the criminals that seek the hidden stash.

FUNimation will be Simuldubbing it this season. Unknown what date currently.

 

That bear though...

 

Golden%2520Kamuy%2520-%252001%2520-%2520

 

Shit if the WHOLE anime looked like that, I wouldn't mind... but having only a few animals stand out like that amongst what mostly seems like under-detailed 2D art, just really becomes an eyesore and ends up looking like some half-assed amateur decided to dabble with Photoshop.

Is this snapshot really from the anime or just a photoshop edited image?

Has the animation been good enough or is this a series that needs a BD release to fix things? Early on I heard some negative things.

Aside from the CG bear shown above, there hasn't been anything funky with the art/animation imo.

 

In terms of the show itself, it's probably the best "new" series airing this season. At least in my opinion.

Seems to focus a lot of food. Every episode has a sitdown to discuss whatever the characters are eating. They even show them hunting and killing their food before they cook it on an open fire. Where do they keep coming up with ingredients for the sauce though that the Ainu girl keeps calling "poop"?

 

Pretty good so far, but with 6 episodes left it seems like there is still a lot of ground to cover since they haven't gotten very far with the treasure hunt.

Seems to have lost it's way midway, but the characters definitely keep things interesting. Anticipating the second season this fall.
