Golden Kamuy: Storyline
In the early 20th century, Russian-Japanese war veteran Saichi Sugimoto ekes out a meager existence in the wilds of Hokkaido during the postwar gold rush. When he comes across a map leading to a fortune in Ainu gold, he embarks on a treacherous quest.
But Sugimoto is not the only interested party, and anyone who knows about the gold would kill to possess it! Faced with the harsh conditions of the northern wilderness, ruthless criminals, and renegade Japanese soldiers, Sugimoto will need all his skill and luck – and the help of an Ainu girl named Asirpa – to survive.
