Are there any similarities between Golden Kamuy and Vinland Saga?

Yukimura Hmmm let’s see… Are there? It will be great if there are any. Maybe a lot of people dying, and they’re both mainly set in the cold regions. And then… what else?

Noda The old men are cool. They have sex appeal. Please give me more hairy but rough and cool old men.

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.

Kobayashi: The pen name of the person who submitted this question is Tanigaki’s Chest Hair. Wouldn’t this make you embarrassed to raise your hand? Hey, Tanigaki’s Chest Hair!? Are you there, Chest Hair?

Main cast’s comments regarding Golden Kamuy anime season 3

As we have promised in the previous post, here’s our translation of the comments from the main cast regarding the third season of the Golden Kamuy anime. As usual, hit us up if you find any mistake in our translation, or if you have suggestion of how a line would be better translated!

杉元佐一役の小林親弘。

Kobayashi Chikahiro (Sugimoto Saichi)

Finally, we’ve started with the third season! It has been about two years since the previous season. I’ve been anxiously waiting for this!

The four people who proceed to the new stage of Karafuto and the four people who go after them… The extremely unique people they meet there… There’s nothing I’m looking forward more.

There are too many scenes I want to see.

I wonder who will play that role?

I wonder how that scene will be like?

What about the gold bullion? The convicts? What about their past!! What about the language!!

I’m very excited as a big fan of the work.

Let’s enjoy it together once the broadcast starts!

Banya ☆

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.

On 16 December 2018, an event was held in Animate AKIBA Girls’ Station in Akihabara, Tokyo to celebrate the release of the BDs/DVDs of Golden Kamuy second season. Since it was near the end of the year, the theme was “Golden Kamuy’s Year-End Party” with Kobayashi Chikahiro (Sugimoto Saichi). At that time, the second season hadn’t finished broadcasting. The event was filled with female fans who won the lottery drawing for the tickets to the event. The event started in a rather nervous tension, but as it went on, it became filled with laughter after laughter, totally entertaining the attendees.
