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.

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.

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.
