The fourth season of Golden Kamuy will resume this April as part of the Spring 2023 anime season.
The second half of the season was delayed following the death of a staff member working on the series late last year in Hokkaido.
His only clue to the gold is a map tattooed on the skin of escaped convicts and the young Ainu girl Asirpa who acts as his guide.
Along the way, Sugimoto and Asirpa meet a cast of colorful and often criminally insane characters who are either searching for the gold as well, or just get caught up in their mess.
The series takes place in the early 20th century, shortly after the Russo-Japanese war, at the time Hokkaido was largely untamed but the Japanese government pushed to establish their influence there to prevent impending Russian colonization of the island.
