Golden Kamuy is back with its third season. The anime already has two successful seasons and is now back with a third, thrilling season. Golden Kamuy is a Japanese Manga Series written and illustrated by Satoru Noda. The story is based on Saichi Sugimoto, a Russo-Japanese war veteran, and his quest to find the Ainu treasure left behind by the ancestors.
The first season had a slow start. However, it picked up the pace as Sugimoto continued his journey in his quest. Unlike other anime series, Golden Kamuy maintained the quality of its content in season 2 as well. In just 12 episodes, it managed to explore expansive grounds and deliver action and emotion equally.

Golden Kamuy Season 3 Recap
At the end of season 2, viewers witness the escape of 24 Abashiri convicts who are headed towards the gold. They have the route tattooed on their hands. However, Asirpa is the only one who can decipher the codes in the tattoos. Asirpa is the young Ainu girl who is helping Sugimoto in his quest. Even though it looked like the treasure hunt is about to end, there is a lot of content that the viewers are yet to consume.
The third season picks up from the point where an immortal Sugimoto survives the bullet shot in the head by Ogata. After a delayed reunion, Sugimoto and Asirpa finally reach Karafuto with the help of the clues given by Asirpa’s father. Further, Sugimoto meets Lt. Tsurumi and the rest of the 7th division members.
The second episode might focus on their fight for survival and Asirpa’s desperation to know her father’s reality. Thus, the third season will progress, and hopefully, by the finale, Sugimoto’s efforts will bear fruit as he finds the hidden treasure.
The English dubbed version of Season 1 and 2 are available on Funimation and Amazon Prime. Season 3 will premiere on these platforms later this year.
