Meiji-mura hosts Golden Kamuy event, promising tons of fun

It has long been known that the open-air museum/theme park Meiji-mura in the prefecture of Aichi housed some of the buildings used as models in Golden Kamuy. A collaboration between the two was thus inevitable. And now it’s coming true! Since 19 September, and all the way to 23 November, Meiji-mura is hosting a Golden Kamuy special event. Not only we can take a look at the exterior and the interior of the buildings as we reminisce the past chapters of Golden Kamuy, we can also take part in mystery games, try various dishes, and do many other GK-related activities.

The NHK on 18 September published an article, complete with a video, about how the Tomakomai City Museum is now seeing visits by fans of Golden Kamuy who especially want to see some items that have appeared in the manga.

What an inept person he is.

That is why I, Miyake Kenta, feeling more more more more more more more more more more more more more more more more more more more more, would like to live the world of Golden Kamuy together with Gansoku-san ineptly, passionately.

Please look more-ward to it!

[TRANSLATION] Yukimura Makoto x Noda Satoru Interview: Part 2

Original interview here. The way the translation is divided does not correspond with the division of the original interview. Corrections, suggestions are welcome!

Mantanweb.jp in 2019 featured an interview with Yukimura Makoto (Vinland Saga, serialised in Kodansha’s Monthly Afternoon) and Noda Satoru (Golden Kamuy, serialised in Shueisha’s Weekly Young Jump). Part 1 of the translation is here.

One of Golden Kamuy’s charms is the scenes about cooking and meals. Is there any of the dishes that is particularly impressive for you, Yukimura-san?

Yukimura  There are many, but the one that really made me think “I want to eat this!” is the battered, deep-fried orca meat (tatsuta-age). That one really looks delicious! While brain is… Maybe if Asirpa-san looked at me with that terrible face, I’d eat it (laughs). The drawings of the meals look really realistic. The ways to prepare them are also depicted in such details. Does Noda-san draw it all from imagination? Or probably he tries to make it himself and takes pictures for collecting data. Whichever way he does it, it’s still great.

Ichinose Kana voices Enonoka in Golden Kamuy

On 17 August 2020, it was announced that Ichinose Kana, a seiyuu from Hokkaido, is voicing Enonoka, the Karafuto Ainu girl who will appear in Golden Kamuy season 3. Previously, Ichinose has made a name for voicing characters such as Ichigo in Darling in the Franxx and Tuesday in Carole & Tuesday. Concerning her role as Enonoka, she said the following:

Enonoka-chan is a little girl with a firm side despite being small, with a realistically cute side. I’m enjoying voicing Enonoka-chan who has multiple sides to her. I act my best episode by episode. Personally, I really love the cute combination (of Enonoka) with Chikapasi, so please check it out when it’s on air! I will be glad if more people can enjoy the third season.

Please look forward to it!
