[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.

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).
