Hello everyone. I haven't been to the cinema much lately. I'm thinking I'd like to see an interesting movie. I'm Boss from Otaku Republic.
Oh! That's great! Today, I've brought information about a new movie that Boss will definitely be interested in! I'm planning to see this movie. I'm Saori from Otaku Republic!
A movie I would definitely be interested in? What could it be?
It's the live-action movie of Golden Kamuy.
【Live-Action Movie Adaptation!?】Golden Kamuy's Live-Action Movie Set for Release in January 2024!
Wow~!! You can clearly see which actor is playing which character! That's great! I don't know where it was filmed, but it looks just like the real Hokkaido, and it must have been incredibly cold during the shooting.
What are you worried about? But indeed, watching this live-action footage, you can really feel the coldness of Hokkaido, Japan's snowy region, which is the setting for the story! What aspects are you curious about, Boss?
Hmm, I'm curious about how much of the story they'll adapt into the movie, and whether Asirpa will show her funny faces properly. The actress playing Asirpa is very beautiful.
There's no mention in the title or elsewhere of a 'first part' implying a sequel, but I think it's hard to cover the entire vast story in just one movie. So if it's well-received, maybe they'll produce a sequel like the live-action Rurouni Kenshin movies, right?
The manga version is completed! The final chapter, the 5th season of the anime, is set for production!
If I want to catch up on Golden Kamuy, which is better, the anime or the manga?
If you want to catch up to the latest episodes quickly, then the manga is the way to go. If you want to enjoy more immersive experiences and additional scenes, the anime version is recommended. The anime version is gradually catching up to the manga's finale, and up to now, it has been adapted up to just before the final chapter. Plus, in June 2023, the anime adaptation of the manga's final chapter was announced, so I think it will be animated in the latter half of 2024 or the first half of 2025!
Hmm. For the movie recap (just guessing), watching up to about the second season of the anime should be fine, right? Everyone, please do check out the live-action version of Golden Kamuy scheduled for broadcast in January 2024!
