In a series of tweets on 21 September 2020, Golden Kamuy director Nanba Hitoshi thanked fans for the reactions received so far for the Anehata OVA, which comes bundled with volume 23 of the manga. He said they’re giving him the encouragement for season 3, which will start airing on 5 October. Furthermore, he said that even though the first OVA was about the yakuza territorial war, since the second OVA it’s all been about love: Shiraishi’s first love, Oyabun and Hime’s homosexual love, and now… Anehata’s interspecies love. Since he’s animated stories of various extreme forms of love, he wished he would get the chance to animate the story of the Lightning Bandit too, since it’s also about love – adult love.
Previously, he once tweeted that the Oyabun and Hime OVA could be produced thanks to fans making themselves heard by the production committee and Shueisha, the publisher. We wonder if now Lightning Bandit and Ogin’s story could be greenlit for an OVA too, if enough fans ask for it?
In another development, the artwork for THE SIXTH LIE’s upcoming CD that contains Golden Kamuy’s third ending song, Yuusetsu, has been revealed.
The CD will be released on 2 December 2020 for 1,200 yen (+tax). The track list is as follows:
