Everyone’s favorite action and adventure-based anime, Golden Kamuy, is coming back with season 4 after a long wait of 2 years. With the end of season 3 of Golden Kamuy, fans only imagined if they would ever be able to see season 4 of their favorite one. Finally, the creators announced its comeback in the last month of 2021.
Fans very much loved the first three seasons of the show. The quest of the main leads to hunt for a secret treasure was nothing less than entertaining. There are a total of 26 story arcs, out of which 20 arcs have received an anime adaptation. Nearly 200 chapters have been adapted in the anime series, while a total of 300 chapters have been released.
The previous three seasons had 12 episodes each, so there is a prediction that the coming season will also have 12 episodes. However, only 12 episodes won’t be enough to complete the manga; it would at least need 24 episodes or one more season. The manga is finished and has 314 chapters, so it would require twenty-four episodes to be animated, judging from the previous seasons.
On December 5, 2021, the new season was confirmed during an event. Along with the release date, the creators shocked the fans by revealing about the studio and the lead staff change. Geno Studio has done a great job animating the series so far, and fans admire their work. Now, the production work has been handed over to Brain’s Base, a name behind many popular series, including Durarara, Baccano, Blood Lad, To Your Eternity, and more.
Some fans were happier after the news; some weren’t, but the next season’s news made everyone smile. Watching the teaser and key art visuals for the 4th season only added charm to the news.
What Is The Release Date Of Golden Kamuy Season 4?
A wave of excitement gave an adrenalin rush to the fans when on March 27, the official trailer for season 4 of the anime was released.
On September 2, Golden Kamuy’s official site revealed the exact release date as October 3, 2022. As a double bonus, the officials gifted fans with another trailer, and the opening and ending theme songs were also disclosed.
Like the previous seasons, Crunchyroll would also be streaming the 4th season. The countdown has begun, and it won’t be long until fans enjoy their favorite anime’s new season with popcorn and snacks.
What Is The Golden Kamuy Anime All About?
Golden Kamuy needs no introduction; this has been one of the most popular anime for a long time, with an IMDB rating of 8.1. Not going to lie, the anime was popular, but one can’t call it overly popular.
The series focuses on Sugimoto and Asirpa, who work together as a team to hunt a secret treasure. The story begins in a post-war era. Due to the bravery and excellency of his skills, Sugimoto is famous as the “Immortal.” One day, he gets the news from a drunk guy. The information was of some gold hidden by the murderer of Ainu before his arrest.
After a series of incidents, Sugimoto joins Asirpa the Ainu. Both start their journey to find the hidden treasure for their own reasons. The girl wants the treasure back, which was stolen from them, and the boy wants to fulfill his promise to his friend. Sugimoto had the responsibility to look after the widow of his friend.
A series of action, adventures, and comedic scenes begins when our heroes begin their journey. The three seasons have made some shocking revelations, and the journey has been fun overall.
Asirpa and Sugimoto met many characters during their journey who helped them reach their destination. Things started becoming serious when they learned that some big fishes were also after the gold, and they had to win it before they could.
Meanwhile, Asirpa and Sugimoto separated, and there was suspense followed by several stressful sequences. After the main characters reunited, the story became more intriguing than ever.
Season 3 ended by giving the viewers a lot of questions. Fans were intrigued about the end of the story and what was awaiting the heroes. We can expect some crazy adventures with action, entertainment, and fun in the upcoming season.
Teasers and key visuals have clearly kept the fans busy and in expectation of a great time. After the confirmation announcement, we saw the showrunners dropping teasers and PVs. This added more curiosity among the audience.
Let’s hope that the anime will end the story in the coming season, as the manga has already reached its end, but we also hope that they don’t rush the ending. We have already seen Golden Kamuy skipping some manga chapters, later animated as OVAs, so that one can expect the same.
But I hope Golden Kamuy season 4 stays faithful to the manga and, if need be, does a fifth and final season to conclude the story! But that’s something to talk about in the future. Now is the time to look forward to the upcoming anime season!
