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

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.

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.

Season 3 confirmed!

During the Golden Kamuy Special Event on 7 July 2019, it was announced that season 3 is on the works! And with that, Golden Kamuy officially left the two-season anime club, where so many anime titles that have never got past the second season gather… The first visual was also released, showing Sugimoto in a thick snowstorm, with the words Then, to Karafuto… shown on it.

Can’t wait to listen to their voice acting again!

A trailer for the upcoming OVA Monster has also been released. The OVA will come with the special edition of Golden Kamuy manga volume 19, slated for 19 September 2019 release. In an official interview – and as you can see in the trailer yourself – director Nanba Hitoshi said that this time they don’t make the bear with 3D CG anymore. They’re all hand-drawn now. Bye bye then, iconic (ahem) 3D CG bear!
