The promotional video, released for the first time, is a dynamic main video that pursues the world view of the work and takes large-scale locations in Hokkaido and across the country. A man in a military cap with a 1930s infantry rifle walking through the snowy mountains, a maker (a short sword used by the Ainu people) in the small hand of a girl, and a man with a mysterious tattoo appears.

I loved Ogata in the original, so it was an honor to play him. I wish I could breathe life into it while making the most of manga’s charm.

Everyone’s realistic and highly reproducible characters, the locations and sets that appear in the original work, and the shooting in the great outdoors, such as snowy mountains, all have the world view of “Golden Kamuy,” and it seems they naturally lived as Ogata. However, the charm of Hyakunosuke Ogata still needs to be added to this. I’m hoping for a sequel now. Please stay tuned.
