posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for the anime of Satoru Noda's Golden Kamuy manga revealed on Friday that Mamiko Noto is joining the show's cast as Inkarmat (character name spelling not confirmed). The character will appear in the 12th episode.
The official website lists the anime with three home video volume releases and 12 episodes. The home video releases will also include the "Golden Dōga Gekijō" shorts (including four episodes exclusive to the first volume).
The July issue of Newtype magazine, which shipped on June 9, did not list the 12th episode of the show as the final episode, although the magazine listed "final episode" for the last episode of other anime ending this month.
The anime premiered on April 9. Crunchyroll is streaming the series with English subtitles as it airs in Japan, and Funimation is streaming it with an English dub.
Crunchyroll describes the story:
The story takes place in the mighty Northern field of Hokkaido, the time is in the turbulent late Meiji Era. A post war soldier Sugimoto, aka, “Immortal Sugimoto” was in need of large sums of money for a particular purpose…. What awaited Sugimoto, who stepped into Hokkaido's Gold Rush with dreams of making a fortune, was a tattoo map leading to a hidden treasure based on hints inscribed on the bodies of convicts in Abashiri Prison?! The magnificent nature of Hokkaido vs vicious convicts and the meeting with a pure Ainu girl, Ashiripa!! A survival battle for a hidden treasure hunt begins!
