Anehata Shiton coming to you in OVA

Even though geno studio hasn’t been giving us much update about season 3, other than they’re working hard on it, news was dropped that an OVA will be released as a bundle with Golden Kamuy book 23. Skipping the arc about the Lightning Bandit and Ogin for now, the OVA will be about Anehata Shiton.

Golden Kamuy news round-up February 2020

Let’s start this round-up with a heartfelt congratulation to Noda-sensei and his family as his wife was giving birth! The exact date is unclear as of now, but Young Jump let him take a break so that no new chapter of Golden Kamuy was out in Young Jump 12/2020. Congratulations, may the mother and the child(ren) be healthy and well!

The wording of the announcement on Golden Kamuy manga official account, however, was such that it could also be interpreted as it’s the sensei was the one giving birth. No wonder some of the replies were either confused or joking! I also couldn’t help thinking that writing about Inkarmat’s pregnancy—which has been featured in the last several chapters—is something that is deeply personal to Noda-sensei.

[TRANSLATION] Golden Kamuy’s Year-End Party with Kobayashi Chikahiro (part 2)

Source: Animate Times. Corrections, suggestions are welcome.

Part 1 here.

Fifth question:

What point are you careful about so that you can give this impression of the gap between Sugimoto’s kindness and violence? Also, with which member of the cast do you want to make citatap with?

Kobayashi: The member of the cast with whom I want to make citatap is (Itou) Kentarou-san (Shiraishi’s seiyuu). Indeed, I want to sit around a pot with everyone from Sugimoto’s group. Or, maybe with Tsurumi, who seems to have never done citatap. How would we do that, I wonder (laughs).

The members of Tsurumi faction have never participated in Ainu culture such as making citatap, so it would be great if one day they all get along and can do the Ainu dance together. I wonder if that day will ever come.

News round-up: Collaboration with NJPW, participation in JUMP FESTA 2020

It’s of course only a matter of time until this happened. After all, Golden Kamuy has pages filled with half-naked men wrestling each other… so no wonder the series could forge a promotional partnership with New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW).

New Golden Kamuy fragrance: Hijikata and Ienaga

Primaniacs has added two variants to their Golden Kamuy fragrance line-up: Hijikata Toshizou and Ienaga Kano. Our fragrance tester – the one with the best smelling taste among us – managed to have a sniff of the two new variants. She said that Hijikata’s smells fresh, with a bit floral and spicy scent. Meanwhile, she can smell the rose in Ienaga’s fragrance, which is refreshing but not overpowering.

She also tested Koito’s perfume, and she said that it’s somehow very floral, but also musky. Just like Koito’s, Tsukishima’s is floral, but the tone reminded her of the ocean. Somehow this fits Sado Island-native Tsukishima so much! Information about Koito’s and Tsukishima’s fragrance is here, while more information about Hijikata’s and Ienaga’s can be found below.

Each 30-ml bottle is sold for 5,417 yen (with tax 5,797 yen).
