Let’s start this with news of past event: From 19 June to 2 July 2020, an exhibition was held of the works of animator Hayama Jun’ichi, including his works for Golden Kamuy. (Hayama, for instance, worked on the notorious otter episode.) The free-admission event was housed by ACG Labo in Jingu-mae, Shibuya, Tokyo. You can see some of his works exhibited in the tweets below.
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).
The official Japanese Twitter account for the upcoming film, Spider-Man: Far from Home on 17 June 2019 morning announced the collaboration with the anime Golden Kamuy. Three posters show Golden Kamuy characters posing like Spider-Man in the anime’s Hokkaido setting such as Abashiri Prison and Otaru. A trailer was also released in which Sugimoto asked Asirpa who Spider-Man is (who he said has a head like Shiraishi’s), and Asirpa, joined by Tsurumi, explained to him eagerly. Tsurumi also claimed that he and Nick Fury had many similarities!
First of all, congratulations, Mexico! Panini, which has previously licensed Golden Kamuy in Brazil, is now taking Golden Kamuy to Mexico. The first volume, rated 17+, will be out in June 2019, priced at 109 pesos.
Another good news for summer is that this year Sapporo Beer ties up again with Golden Kamuy. This time, another can design is introduced: Shiraishi design!
On this year’s White Day, Golden Kamuy made several announcements… and it’s all about love!
Firstly, it was announced through Young Jump and official Twitter accounts of Golden Kamuy that the special edition of the 19th volume of the manga – slated for 19 September 2019 release – will come with the third OVA. This time, the OVA will cover the story that features the gay yakuza couple Oyabun (Boss) and Hime (Princess).
Phew. We were away from this blog for quite a while and there are so many news that we need to round up here (even though you probably have seen our Twitter updates about them).
First of all, congratulations Germany! MangaCult will begin publishing Golden Kamuy in German in August 2019. Make sure to keep an eye on publication dates!
Several branches of Princess Café will feature a collaboration with Golden Kamuy early this year. Princess Café, known to cater to fans of anime, manga, and game, will present special Golden Kamuy decorations, menu, and goods for a limited time.
On 5 August 2018, the opening theme for Golden Kamuy season 2 was announced. To replace MAN WITH A MISSION’s song that was used for the opening theme in the previous season, this time we will have Reimei (Dawn), the result of a collaboration between Sayuri (さユり) and MY FIRST STORY. Sayuri previously has provided songs for Fate/Extra Last Encore and Scum’s Wish, while you might have known MY FIRST STORY from Nobunaga Concerto.
