“Golden Kamuy” fans rejoice: The third season of the animated TV series set in Hokkaido is on the way.

The anime's production company released a video teaser and a visual showing main character Saichi Sugimoto heading to Sakhalin to reunite with Ainu hunter Asirpa.

The Hokkaido-set tale follows the veteran of the 1904-1905 Russo-Japanese War, dubbed “the Immortal,” in his quest to find a huge fortune left by the indigenous people of Japan's northernmost island, helped by the Ainu girl.

The show is adapted from an adventure manga of the same name by Satoru Noda, currently running in the Weekly Young Jump comic anthology.

The original comic book series won the Manga Grand Prix at the 22nd Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize in 2018.
