Golden Kamuy is one of the many anime franchises returning this Fall with new episodes, and the original creator behind the series is getting ready for Season 4's debut with some special new art to celebrate! Golden Kamuy's original manga series actually ended its run earlier this year, but following the end of the third season not long ago, fans have been especially eager to see the anime return with new episodes. Following a confirmation that this new season would be coming our way this Fall, now it won't be too much longer until we can catch up with Saichi Sugimoto and Asirpa.
Golden Kamuy Season 4 will be kicking off on October 3rd in Japan, and the new season will be bringing in tons of new characters, dangerous new foes, and pretty unique personalities as Sugimoto and Asirpa finally reunited to take on the next leg of their gold hunt. It's a big season for original series creator Satoru Noda too, and the creator took to Twitter to get ready for the new season's release date with some special new art highlighting the key focus characters in the new season. Check it out below:
Golden Kamuy Season 4 will be feature Shizutaka Sugahara taking over as director for Season 4 at Brain's Base (which will be handling duties taken over from Geno Studio, which had the first three seasons) with new character designer Takumi Yamakawa, and returning scriptwriter Noboru Takagi in tow. The new opening theme for the season is titled "NEVER SAY GOODBYE feat. Mummy-D" as performed by Ali, and the new ending theme will be titled "I Pray That Everything Will Be There" as performed by THE SPELLBOUND.
If you wanted to catch up with Golden Kamuy before the new season hits next month, you can find the series streaming with Crunchyroll. They announced they will be streaming the new season alongside its release too, and tease Season 4 as such, "Separated from Sugimoto, Asirpa now travels toward the Russian border, focused on discovering more about her and her father's involvement with the coded tattoos. But Sugimoto is determined to find and protect Asirpa! Along the way, he'll discover new people, new cultures rich with history, and an unforgiving terrain. Will Sugimoto and Asirpa survive their journeys and reunite?"
