The upcoming season 4 of Golden Kamuy revealed a new, second trailer along with theme song information. Studio Brain’s Base is animating the sequel, which will begin airing on October 3. Theme songs, both of which can be heard in the trailer, include:
- Opening: “NEVER SAY GOODBYE” by ALI feat. Mummy-D
- Ending: “Subete ga Soko ni Arimasu Yo ni.” by THE SPELLBOUND
In addition to the trailer, Golden Kamuy Season 4 also revealed a new cast addition. Yasuyuki Kase is joining as Waichiro Sekiya, while Haruka Shiraishi and Chikahiro Kobayashi are reprising their roles as Asirpa and Aichi.
Golden Kamuy anime is based on a manga by Satoru Noda. The manga started serialization in Weekly Young Jump magazine in 2014. Geno Studio animated the first two seasons of the anime adaptation, which aired in 2018 and 2019. Season 3 (also Geno Studio) followed in 2020.
Viz Media licensed the manga in 2016 and describes the plot as:
In the early twentieth century, Russo-Japanese War veteran Saichi “Immortal” Sugimoto scratches out a meager existence during the postwar gold rush in the wilderness of Hokkaido. When he stumbles across a map to a fortune in hidden Ainu gold, he sets off on a treacherous quest to find it. But Sugimoto is not the only interested party, and everyone who knows about the gold will kill to possess it! Faced with the harsh conditions of the northern wilderness, ruthless criminals and rogue Japanese soldiers, Sugimoto will need all his skills and luck—and the help of an Ainu girl named Asirpa—to survive.
